What is the meaning of "documenting"?

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 2 weeks ago
Reporting on the latest incidents in Syria, the BBC writes of the Syrian "Observatory" on Human Rights (which as far as is known is one guy in an apartment in England): The SOHR is one of the most prominent organisations documenting and reporting incidents and casualties in the Syrian conflict. The group says its reports are impartial, though its information cannot be verified. So I have just a simple question? Isn't the claim of "documenting" something antithetical to the words "cannot be verified"? Yes, it is possible to *claim* to be documenting something and to completely fabric... more »

Hypersonic hype

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 2 months ago
If you watched TV news yesterday, or read most newspapers, here's the story you heard: "Hypersonic plane could fly from New York to Los Angeles in less than an hour." The news was all about the potential revolution in commercial travel, about how "the WaveRider could potentially fly from Los Angeles to New York in 46 minutes." But if you're good at reading between the lines, or if you read to the end of the stories that appeared online, you'd learn what this news was *really*about: Hypersonic travel, meaning speeds of Mach 5 (3,800 miles per hour) and above, has been a focus of the ... more »

The mass, intentional killing of civilians (a.k.a. genocide)

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 2 months ago
Today is "Hiroshima Day" on which people all over the world remember the day the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, killing up to 140,000 Japanese civilians. Three days later another 75,000 were killed by the second atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki. What I choose to remember on this day is that these were not *exceptional* acts in any way, save the particular method of destruction. Thanks largely to Kurt Vonnegut and his book *Slaughterhouse Five* and not any history lessons in school, many people know of the firebombing of Dresden, which killed at least 35,000 German civilian... more »

Police attempt to smear man they killed

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 3 months ago
In Anaheim, the police murder of a young man has brought protests that are ongoing even as I write this. Note the back-handed attempt at incrimination in this story: "Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn said a single officer shot Diaz and a "gun was not recovered at the scene." But, Dunn, said officers reported Diaz tossed away items as he ran. One of those items was recovered, but it was not a gun." The fact that Diaz allegedly "tossed away items" is *completely* irrelevant to the story. Here's the simple fact: *No weapon of any kind was found*. Here's another fact: Even if he *had* thr... more »

The Bulgarian bombing: the semantics of a smear

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 3 months ago
Yesterday a bus filled with Israeli tourists was bombed in Bulgaria. Today's *San Jose Mercury News* (online at the *New York Times*) carries the story. The *Times* headline (unlike the article, which we'll get to in a minute) is at least somewhat honest, if not still biased by headlining accusations instead of facts: "Hezbollah Is Blamed for Attack on Israeli Tourists in Bulgaria." The *Mercury News* headline, the major page one headline on the top right, screams the pseudo-factual "Suicide attack linked to Iran", leaving out "allegedly" or anything which would suggest to the reade... more »

Spinning the news from Afghanistan

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 4 months ago
18 civilians were killed by a "NATO" (i.e., U.S.) airstrike in Afghanistan yesterday. AP and the *Washington Post* provides a classic case in point for how such news is treated by the U.S. media, and by the U.S. government as well. The first story that appeared was this one. A curious story, because the page title (that appears on top of the browser) as well as the URL refers to the 18 people killed, but the headline and the bulk of the story is about Leon Panetta and Pakistan. Not until the 21st paragraph (!) do we finally get to the news about the murder of the civilians. Telling... more »

Shaping the "truth" on Syria

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 5 months ago
The massacre in Houla provides a perfect illustration of how the corporate media shapes the "truth" about Syria. First, let's look at the AP storywhich reported on the killing of 90 people, including 32 children, in the Syrian town of Houla. After the basic story is established, we jump immediately to outrage from the U.S., and the U.N.'s Ban Ki-moon and Kofi Annan denouncing the Syrian government for its responsibility for the crime. But Al Jazeera, no friend of the Syrian government, provides one more rather essential detail which the AP omitted, courtesy of the chief U.N. observer... more »

George Zimmerman's "apology"

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 6 months ago
George Zimmerman "apologized" today for killing Trayvon Martin. That's how the media treated the story. None seemed to notice the *content* of the apology: "I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not." What is he saying there? He's sorry he killed a 17-year old, but wouldn't be if Trayvon were 25? It's ok to kill someone in "self-defense" if you don't know if they're armed, and therefore are justified to assume that they are? Interestingly, the last assumption would put Zimmerman right in line both with U.S. ... more »

Merchant(s) of death

Left I on the News at Left I on the News - 6 months ago
Viktor Bout, who the media calls the "Merchant of Death," just got 25 yearsfor attempting to sell weapons to anti-government rebels in Colombia (actually these particular "rebels" were U.S. agents). Meanwhile, the U.S. and the Arab kings and sheiks who are its allies openly discuss arming anti-government rebels in Syria. Hardly the first such occurrence, of course, since the U.S. armed and funded anti-government rebels in Afghanistan and Nicaragua as well, not to mention Libya, where they not only armed and funded the rebels, they did their bombing for them.

Ruling that the Constitution allows strip searches even for the most minor offenses, Justice Kennedy "wrote that courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of correctional officials," exposing the right-wing judicial activism of the Supreme Court. Not only are the courts in "no position" to do so, *it is not their job*. *Their* job is to decide if actions are *Constitutional*, not to decide on the usefulness or practicality of laws, or whether they keep us "safe" or not.

Two reactions to the recent massacre of 16 Afghans by an American soldier remind us of the nature of the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan (and elsewhere).

"No military targets" in Homs

"Our species retains hereditary traits that add greatly to our destructive impact. We are tribal and aggressively territorial, intent on private space beyond minimal requirements and oriented by selfish sexual and reproductive drives. Cooperation beyond the family and tribal levels comes hard.

Perhaps a law of evolution is that intelligence usually extinguishes itself. This admittedly dour scenario is based on what can be termed the juggernaut theory of human nature, which holds that people are programmed by their genetic heritage to be so selfish that a sense of global responsibility will come too late."

Afghans fear being left in the cold

On a particularly frigid day last year, at least six children - ranging from one month to five-years-old - froze to death in a camp for the internally displaced people in Charahi Qambar on the outskirts of Kabul.
They were among the 100-odd Afghans who died in the winter of 2012 - one of the harshest in recent memory.
With winter just weeks away, the challenge to beat the elements and stay alive has once again gained immediacy.
The majority of the 6,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Charahi Qambar refugee camp had fled violence from southwestern Herat. They all had hoped that moving to the capital would make their lives less imperiled.
But they might have been wrong.
For Afghanistan, a volatile mix of a three decades-long conflict, a subsequent population boom and a series of natural disasters (2011 saw the eighth drought in 11 years) have led to a situation where one-third of the population lack access to healthful food.

Another 8.5 million people are on the verge of food insecurity.

In rural areas, the extreme weather of the winter months – mid-November to late March – makes it more devastating.
