AdLLaw Editorial #2

AdLLaw Editorial #2

Like him or not, Bill O’Reilly is an influential person.  He has been a major contributor to the Fox News Network for decades.  He is known personally and professionally by all the movers and shakers in the world of Journalism and Television.

This man is being roasted over an open fire for his claims of time in combat and for having witnessed events it is said he did not. Former associates and people who touted they were always anti-O’Reilly are talking about this…NOW.

Bill O’Reilly made these claims years even decades ago, but no one disputed the claims…THEN. They stayed silent and let him carry on.  Other journalists are reporting they knew several of the stories were fabricated, but there are some problems with this.  The former associates or others may have an ax to grind with O’Reilly.  Many of these revelations are first reported by News Agencies which are known for “paying for a story”, taking a benign story and giving it negative connotations or sometimes soliciting “paid to lie” exposés.  Either the O’Reilly accusers are lying now or they lied then, by omission.

In most cases the lies like Brian Williams of NBC were self-serving to enhance his “street cred”.  However, it looks as if some of Bill O’Reilly’s tales may have done serious harm to one or more person’s ability to earn a living, move about comfortably in their normal environment and perhaps endangered their lives.  He is not the first Journalist who may have caused this kind of situation with his story telling and he is not alone by any means.

If you were to research deeply enough you may find an article or two from other Media sources who at the time supported even concurred with Mr. O’Reilly’s claims.

If these allegations are true then it shows a double standard which prevails in our News & Information arena.  Ignore or close ranks around one of their own, even when they do wrong and throw everyone else under the bus.

Our worldwide Media is inhabited by imperfect people, some who lie.  They lie to the public for personal gain of all kinds.  They present themselves to the public as the voice of reason, honesty and moral good.

I am not expecting perfection; however they do lie, sometimes with disastrous results.   Misrepresentations, justifications for promoting false impressions that influence our perceptions which cause faulty judgments and possible untoward acts on persons are theirs.

This editorial is not a condemnation of Bill O’Reilly, but of our Media.  It is a roast for every person who calls themselves Journalist or information Provider and reported falsely without checking facts or failed to report corrections; reported false stories with the intent to do harm or has taken part in activities which were criminal.

Even now our Media skillfully dodges any reports about which US Journalists and News agencies may have been involved in the hacking and official bribing scandal.

The purpose of the First Amendment Right was to allow our Media to report wrong doing without fear of reprisal.  It was not created to use this “Right” to do wrong without reprisal or punishment.

In order for a field which employs or provides a living to hundreds of thousands who purport themselves as servants of reliable and credible information our Media will have to do a lot better to regain our trust and respect.

THE TIME IS NOW FOR ADLLAW/CADELAW TO BE SIGNED INTO LAW

THE TIME IS NOW FOR ADLLAW/CADELAW TO BE SIGNED INTO LAW

Time For AdLLaw is NOWMore and more the public is calling for the reigning in of intrusive police practices and tabloid news that constantly abuses the right to a free press and infringes on people’s privacy rights. During his lifetime, Michael Jackson endured extraordinary invasions of his privacy as a public figure, as well as slander and defamation of his character, to which he protested vigorously. Nor was it not long after his death on June 25, 2009, that the media started in on his family, especially his underage children. And while there is at least the possibility of legal remedy for the living, heretofore there has been none to protect the rights of the surviving family of the deceased. That is why CADELAW is a bill whose time has come.

In her 2010 book, Outrageous Invasions: Celebrities’ Private Lives, Media, and the Law, UConn law professor Robin D. Barnes devotes Chapter 10, “John Lennon and Michael Jackson: The Influence of the Superstar,” to discussing how because of the popularity bestowed by the media and fans on John Lennon and Michael Jackson, the two men became targets of deliberate attempts by governments to neutralize their cultural and political impact. Lennon’s youngest son, Sean, told the New Yorker magazine in 1998 that his father was considered a threat because of his influence: “If he had ever said bomb the White House tomorrow, there would’ve been 10,000 people who would have done it. Pacifists revolutionaries are historically killed by the government.” Barnes reports that “government impotency in relation to the potentially unbounded influence of the superstar,” means clandestine methods and tactics are to shape the “tone and tenor of public discourse.”

The case of Lennon, according to Barnes, leads to understanding how an “equally powerful superstar,” Michael Jackson was also considered a monumental threat to disrupting the status quo. Michael’s 1998, “Man in the Mirror” (written by Siedah Garrett with Glen Ballard), along with the revolutionary social and political message in the lyrics and in the images used in the short film that went along with it “put the world on notice,” according to Barnes.

But in the summer of 1994, when a confidential report of accusations of child molestation was leaked to Hard Copy tabloid reporter Diane Dimond from the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services, the ensuing media persecution began its relentless quest for ratings by using rumor and scandal. Already marginalized for his eccentricities, Michael was objectified, dehumanized, and finally demonized as the press cashed in. For example, Barnes cites Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, Tom Mesereau’s comments that tabloid huckster Nancy Grace’s coverage of the trial held in 2005 “was sub-moronic . . . [and that] she tried to spin a verdict through a lot of emotional innuendo that was just buffoonery.”

Barnes asserts that while trying to prove there was an “actual conspiracy to imprison Jackson” was elusive, the case could be made for Jackson being a convenient scapegoat to deflect heat off the Catholic Church because of the concurrent sexual abuse allegations against clergy of the Archdiocese of Boston. The massive investigation of the Catholic Church went on for several years before Jackson was again falsely accused and his Neverland ranch raided by 70 County Sheriff’s and members of Tom Sneddon’s District Attorney’s Office. All this to control Michael’s rising political influence.

From 1994 until he died, Michael endured relentless persecution from the media. Barnes asserts that while the U.S. Constitution grants free speech and freedom of the press, the Supreme Court fails to enforce the laws that require prerequisites to the proper exercise of those freedoms and the protection of constitutional rights. She notes that the media defends slander and defamation by asserting that the statements they make are true for the most part. False statements also get a pass as simply being reported or quoted, most often from anonymous, so-called inside sources.

Still, Michael is gone now and supposedly what the media writes or broadcasts can no longer hurt him. Obviously not, but it can and does hurt his young children, as well as other family members who share his name. For that reason, our representatives should be introduced to CADELAW and asked to vote to pass it to protect the rights of the family of the deceased.

Renfield Has Nothing On Me

Renfield Has Nothing On Me

Renfield Has Nothing On Me PhotoHello, I am a grave robber.  I come from a long, proud and dishonorable line.  I am very proud of each of my ancestors.

The most renown was my uncle Renfield.  He was in the employ of Doctor Frankenstein, before he took his last position with a Count Dracula.

Unlike Uncle Renfield, I do not steal the bodies, to create monsters.  I steal a decedent’s legacy through vilification, using slander to get the same results.  But hold on, I am not common, like the gossips or rumor mill workers, although I will use their services later.

The old bones I dig up for my creations are verbal.  Sometimes I get a piece or a whole of it right.  But if I cannot I will take a verbal tibia, fibula or brain that belongs to someone else to construct falsehoods.  And when none of those work, I fashion the piece needed.  I am pleased to say I am very, very good at that kind of work; it is what I specialize in.

The   works suits me well since there no pesky laws to watch out for.   The best part is neither my employer nor the people who read my creations will care if I “fashioned” the story.   Truth be told some prefer it that way.

Just as with many of my ancestors, my name and work will live on long after the person or the truth has been forgotten.

I am a grave robber but unlike my ancestors, or their monster masters.  I am the monster and the master.

Have You Signed AdLLaw PetitionHello I am grave robber, I steal from the dead and Renfield has nothing on me.

Hello I am a defamer of the dead.  I steal from the dead and Renfield has nothing on me.

Hello I am Defamer the grave robber, I steal from the dead and Uncle Renfield has nothing on me.

Yellow Journalism – An Accepted Practice to Promote Harmful Agendas

Yellow Journalism or sensationalism, they’re both the same. How about yellow as in cowardly? I found one example of the word yellow used in a sentence:

Yellow shouts louder and increasingly, it’s the color of choice for the driver who wants to make a statement

Yellow Journalism2Yellow journalism is a spineless way of exploiting, distorting or exaggerating mostly gossip (I won’t call it news) to create sensations of shock; and attract readers aiming to boost circulation of stories that are NOT newsworthy.

These journalists seek out what they deem as sensational stories because they’re too indolent to explore the history of the report; or they aren’t honest enough to acquire the story first hand, from the source. Yet, their aim is to make a loud statement. What’s so alarming about gossip or tabloid junk or a report magnified beyond the limit of truth? There is such a thing as making a loud statement using a lie, but an even larger statement can be made with the truth if it’s presented in good taste or not overstated.

Truth runs marathons; Lies runs sprints. “Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons. The truth will win this marathon in court”, in the words of Michael Jackson.

Promoting truth is a marathon effort in itself. In many instances truth becomes or is a greater than normal, extensive and exhausting mission; as in the case of Michael Jackson’s 2005 accusations of molestation. Michael Jackson was correct in his statement that the truth would win that particular marathon in court. However, because many “Yellow Journalist” desired to keep him under a “false light” an attempt to continue the marathon effort was exploited. False light invasion of privacy occurs when information is published about a person that is false or places the person in a false light, is highly offensive to a reasonable person, and is published with knowledge or in reckless disregard of whether the information was false or would place the person in a false light.    False Light

In the case of the deceased person truth run sprints because the truth has a brief life-span while lies last much longer. There are not many who care to challenge the lies because truth doesn’t boost ratings or produce wealth or fame. The accepted form of journalism, especially in America, is to exploit and distort. Tabloid addicts seem to approve of this type of journalism because it satisfies the shock therapy they crave by providing them that sudden or violet disturbance of the mind, emotions or their sensibilities.  

Defamation PhotoSince many people are under the assumption that the reputations of the dead can’t be hurt we have become comfortable with that analogy; and so we continue to promote the agendas of yellow journalists and odious citizens or groups who have become addicted to these shock tactics. How many of us thought it was newsworthy to view the deathbed/morgue photos of Michael Jackson during the televised trial of Conrad Murray or the death photo of Whitney Houston in her casket and, published by the National Enquirer? Of course the National Enquirer has kicked it up another notch and posted Michael Jackson’s morgue photo on the front cover of their latest  issue and enjoy using it as their profile picture on twitter.  I, personally, consider it to be disrespectful to the preservation of Mr. Jackson’s and Ms. Houston’s memory, hurtful to their children, parents, siblings, other family members, friends and yes, once again,  their fans.

Yet we have another final indignity for Ms. Houston, especially after her family made an enormous effort to keep the viewing of her remains private. Whitney Houston’s Casket Photo on Front Page of NE

Another internet media source titles it “Whitney Houston’s open casket photo on tabloid cover”, Open Casket Photo of Whitney Houston

Should we blame the tabloid news outlet for publishing the photo of Ms. Houston or the person that sold the photo to the tabloid outlet? I think blames lies with both parties. They were both gluttonous for financial gain and guilty of exploitation.

We ALL have an agenda, even Cadeflaw and our fixed and final mission has NOT changed. The deceased are not here to defend themselves. We have become their voice. We will continue to call for a law that will hold people accountable for their appalling actions toward the deceased.  

Free Speech ceases to be free when it is used to exploit, distort and defame. You can join us to make this law a reality or you can pretend you don’t see the tragedy in this accepted practice to promote hate by covering it up with beautiful photos and videos. However, beautiful the photos and videos of victims like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and others they won’t stop people with wicked minds; remember they know how to create photos and videos too. In fact, some of them use these death photos as their profile pictures on many internet sites.

How long will we stay divided between two opinions or will we stand up for what’s right? How long will we accept Yellow Journalism – An Accepted Practice to Promote Harmful Agendas?

Help protect and preserve the legacy of the deceased. Don’t allow people to trample on their memories.
