    My article can be summed up in one sentence to *REMEMBER* about the corporate media, especially TV — as Public Enemy rapped…:

    * DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE !! *

    There was a quote from the book _Nineteen Eighty-Four_, by George Orwell, about the State (‘Big Brother’) and its Propaganda Machine, “The Ministry of Truth” (our ‘Corporate Media’), something like:

    ‘The LIE becomes the truth and the truth becomes the lie.’

    So, much so that, as George Orwell wrote:

    “IN A TIME OF UNIVERSAL DECEIT, TELLING THE TRUTH BECOMES A REVOLUTIONARY ACT!”

    “This, in spite of a black mayor and a black police chief and a black cop (L. Johnson of OPD) on the scene talking about ‘his men'”

    For those who don’t know, the current Oakland mayor — who has *NEVER* played what you’d call a stellar role by any means — and has often been M.I.A. as the city’s political office, so-called, “leader” — is _RON DELLUMS_.

    The current Oakland police chief is _ANTHONY BATTS_.

    “These are the same cops who beat the hell out of Black people, if they are caught, for merely trying to run away! These are the same kind of cops who participated in the legalized murder of Oscar Grant for his merely trying to catch his breath!”

    In fact, these are the same kind of cops who shoot and kill black men, minding their own business, for merely standing in the doorway of their own apartment building (Amado Diallo, 1999) and reaching for their wallet or keys, or for merely sitting in their own car (Sean Bell, 2006) after their bachelor party the night before their wedding!

    thanks for this report. i said the same thing after the january 2009 incident and again in July of this year.

  6. Oh come on. I was down there too. Many of those people just wanted to destroy things. Stop acting as if the big bad police are to blame for everything. Try living in Oakland where my car and house were vandalized and you will have a different take.
