Second Look: Debate Over Media Ethics (#92)

Are There Media Ethics?


LAPD Commander David Gascon, Leslie Dutton, CBS Newscaster Harvey Levin

How much does the public trust what’s being presented by mainstream media? Twenty-two years after Full Disclosure first recorded this episode “Are there Media Ethics?” featuring CBS Newscaster Harvey Levin and LAPD’s Commander of Public Affairs and Communications, Dave Gascon. The public perceptions that the media is untrustworthy persist today (see link to Rasmussen poll below). This discussion reveals some of the reasons why. Commander Gascon and Mr. Levin’s honest, and sometimes lively interchange, is as relevant today as it was when it first aired in 1994.

Levin and Gascon both rose to the highest levels of their professions: Levin  as the founder of the successful TMZ Tabloid News and Commander Gascon rose to Assistant Chief of the LAPD . The program Moderator Leslie Dutton was awarded a Public Affairs Emmy in 2001 for Full Disclosure’s “The News Behind the News” cable television show.

    Is anything about America “trustworthy”? We have a career criminal Presidential candidate who’s the subject of 4 criminal investigations. She lied under oath to Congress, and we have a DOJ who conspires to obstruct justice with the FBI in these “investigations”. And the “mainstream” media ignores this epic corruption in our government.
    Anybody familiar with the Richard Fine scandal understands just how corrupt and untrustworthy our entire “judicial system” is. And the mainstream media ignores that too. Obama has never told the truth about anything, and the media ignores that. So, yeah they’re extremely untrustworthy.

    I know about case of Richard Fine, and I already commented about his case for others. This video is from 1994 and until today no change on the general government system because outsiders still commanding this country, including others. Exemplo of unfair parties: one masquerade religion party, some trillionare people, bankers… And some quotes can help:
    “The real rules in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes” — Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court Justice, 1952. “The world is governed by very different personagens from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” — Benjamin Disraeli, First Prime Minister of England, in a novel he published in 1844 called Coningsby, the New Generation.
    “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, and afraid of something. They know that here is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” — Woodrow Wilson, 28th. USA Pres. From his book: The New Freedom, 1913.
    “The new Man is living among us!… He is intrepid and cruel! I was afraid in his presence!” — Adolf Hitler.
    “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws” — Mayer Amschel Rothschild.
    “I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire,… The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply.” — Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild.
    “The way to make money is to bay when blood is running on the streets” — David Rockefeller.
    “The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control… Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.” — Larry P. McDonald, 1976, Congressman killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets.
    “Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls the money can control the world.” — Henry Kissinger
    “The illegal we do immediately. The Unconstitutional takes a little longer.” — H. Kissinger
    “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” — Henry Ford
    “A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.” –John Kennedy
    “Fascism Should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and Corporate power.” — Benito Mussolini
    “He who knows nothing is nearer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.” — Thomas Jefferson
    “The government is like a baby’s alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other.” — Ronald W. Reagan
    “The individual is handicapped by coming face with a conspiracy so monstrous; he cannot believe it exists.”

    The last quote if from J. Edgar Hoover, former head of the FBI
