More Perugia Ordeal -

In a very calculated move, the Italian Supreme Court released its decision on the Perugia Slasher Appeal in the middle of the night . . .

This was a strategic choice designed to inflict maximum damage on the ABC organization, the Tinker Bell News Network, and the rest of the American Media. ABC has a big Amanda Knox interview with Diane Sawyer coming up soon, and, in anticipation of that prospect, they've turned the case into a grotesque multi-million dollar industry, treating it as if it were a telenovela.

The timing of the decision's release was clearly intended to be a deliberate slap in the face to the American Mainstream Media, as it circumvented the Evening News on U.S. TV.

Perugia Slasher Ruling Due -

Meredith Kercher Murder Case . . .

The Italian Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling late tomorrow on whether the acquittals at Appellate level of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito should stand or be rejected. Prosecutors in Perugia want the acquittals tossed and a new trial held in Florence.

Trayvon Nullification Vehicle -

Jim DeFede, CBS Miami reporter, becomes the willing dupe of a very cynical, venal, and malicious propaganda machine which is demonstrably working here to nullify Due Process when, on the pretext of sharing some of his favorite books about Florida, he reports:

 "According to the killer, George Zimmerman, it was the victim's fault. His presence had made him feel threatened. That was why he had followed the boy, and ultimately killed him, so the police said what they would have in 1980, 1935, 1920 - or 1876 or 1818. It had been okay to kill him. They told Zimmerman he could go home."

Hey, Jim, when are you moving to Burma?
You don't deserve to live in the United States!

Yes, folks, this is what the American Press consists of these days: whores, psychopaths, seditionists, nihilists, drug addicts, low lives, and pond scum; coming to a neighborhood near you real soon to poison your jury pool and guarantee that you can never get a fair trial.

These are the people who have the megaphones, the videocams, and the distribution system that constitute The Mighty Wurlitzer Propaganda Machine. These are the people who have the connections to buy Freedom of the Press.

This is what passes for Freedom of the Press these days: the freedom to poison jury pools, the freedom to thwart Due Process and the freedom to obstruct the course of justice.
