February 2015 Roundup It's been an uneven month for the Brick TeeVee Crew with a February CLE OH cold spell challenging the records of February 1963 and lots of snow to deal with plus too-many-to-mention Real Life issues too. So we decided to post up all the stories of note we've accumulated over the past month to get you and us caught up! Click anything and be instantly smarter!

»» Week ending 2-15-15 »» Week ending 2-22-15 WOW! Unless you've been living in a cave (with yer own personal dialysis machine maybe) or watching foxsnooze fake news you may have heard of SOME of these stories but if yer source was Fake Snooze or the Lame Stream Media you certainly didn't get a FULL PICTURE of what really is happening (often with yer tax dollars "at work").
    "The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves, nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe."
    --Thomas Jefferson to Charles Yancey, 1816. ME 14:384
The problem we face is Western media, now being wholly owned-and-operated by global media moguls, directed by various governments to keep the inner workings of their deals opaque to their constituents, grasping for influence and opinion of the huddled masses. One needs only to see the backlash and personal destruction they can and will inflict, from Gary Webb and Iran-Contra to wikileaks to Aaron Swartz, and the incredible number of "leakers" the Obomber Administration has prosecuted and persecuted that we've alerted you to over the years of BTV posts. The dystopia of 1984 is now here. Every IP address is logged. Every phone is potentially tapped including German Chancellor Angela Merkel to name one. All your email is stored and potentially sifted through in "the cloud" of Microsoft, Yahoo, AOL and Google servers (like this blog). Heck The East German STASI never had it this good! And as far as the Lame Stream Media is concerned Mark Twain said it best when he said "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." And Third Riech über-propagandist Joseph Goebbels proclaimed "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." If you watch any teevee at all you will see these two dynamics being played out in every 30-second spot and so-called "news" broadcast. Chris Hedges explains the history of The Press being used to shape Public Opinion as far back as WWI in Death of the Liberal Class GOOD ITEM! In our absence all our regulars have been producing amazing stories, commentaries and FACTS missing from The Lame Stream Media. Check them out! And put some coin in their tip jars while yer there! We're certain you will find something that makes you instantly smarter! Haha! Warm up your brick-throwing arm because you WILL find MANY brick targets on the Sunday Beltway Bubalas Talkies too! We'll have to try to post an off-schedule post this week featuring Net Neutrality Victory! That’s right. We won. Even a few months ago this victory didn’t seem possible. Last May, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler ignored the public call for real Net Neutrality — and instead released a proposal that would have allowed pay-to-play fast lanes online. Comcast and its pals thought they’d won the fight. But Free Press members and millions of people across the country proved them wrong. After a year of relentless activism, Wheeler reversed course — moving to give Internet users the strongest protections possible under Title II of the Communications Act. It’s an incredible turnaround that wouldn’t have happened without every single phone call, email, rally, Facebook post, tweet, meeting with Congress and everything else activists have been part of in the fight to save the Internet. This moment was more than 10 years in the making. The fight to protect the open Internet has united everyone — grassroots activists, technologists, new civil rights leaders, parents, teachers, students, musicians, artists and millions and millions of Internet users. We've proven that we're a force to be reckoned with in Washington. Know this: Now that we've won this huge victory for the Internet, the cable and phone companies will do everything they can to knock it down. But Free Press has never backed down from a fight. Whether in the courts or in Congress, the media or the streets, we will continue pushing, fighting and advocating for the strongest possible policies to protect the free and open Internet. Our message to the world is clear: Mess with the Internet, and you’ll lose. This isn’t the end. This is the start of something huge.

    Microsoft, NBC News Dissolve MSNBC.com Joint Venture 07/15/12 — NBC is buying Microsoft's 50 percent interest in the MSNBC website for an undisclosed amount. MSNBC.com will be rebranded as NBCNews.com, and readers who logged into MSNBC.com late Sunday were automatically redirected to NBCNews.com. Microsoft is preparing to launch its own news service this fall. Although he declined to provide many details about the operation general manager of MSN.com Bob Visse said the news staff will be about the same size as the roughly 100 people who created original content for the MSNBC.com. "There is no question that we are going to have more flexibility to make our own decisions," said Vivian Schiller, NBC News' chief digital officer. "This is really an amicable breakup. We think competition will make us better." Okay then.
