Indian Media Discredited
By Binu Mathew

Indian media's credibility is at an all time low. The recently released audio tapes involving a major corporate house publicist and reputed journalists and the subsequent black out of the news by almost the entire Indian mainstream media puts a huge question mark over the integrity and credibility of the Indian mainstream media

The Radia Papers– Raja, Tata, Ambani Connection
By Girish Nikam

Except for covering the Parliament brou-ha-ha over the demand for the resignation of Raja, the majority of the media have remained quiet. Why? It is not at all surprising, in fact. Nira Radia, as some of the publications have already published, is considered to be the most influential and powerful Public relations person, with powerful clients who controls almost half of the stock exchange— Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani and Sunil Mittal

Radia Tapes… How Top Journalists Have
Turned Handmaidens Of Ambani Brothers
By Girish Nikam

The Niira Radia Tapes which has caused a storm, after a part of it was published in both the Open and Outlook magazines this week, but picked up by only Mail Today newspaper partly, and ignored by all other newspapers and TV channels, shows the extent to which the rot has set in, in our systems

The Ultimate Roller Coaster Ride:
A Brief History of Fossil Fuels - Video
By Post Carbon Institute

Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we're reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we're in for an exciting ride. While there's a real risk that we'll fall off a cliff, there's still time to control our transition to a post-carbon future

Escaping From The American (And Canadian) Dream
By Peter Goodchild

The "stagflation" of the 1970s has returned: high prices and low wages. The difference is that this time it isn't going to go away. In response, we must increase our income and decrease our expenses, although that's easier said than done. The magic word is "frugality" or "thrift."

Stone Age Brain, Space Age Culture
By Mickey Z.

The last time Mars got this close to Earth was 60,000 years ago…an age when stars were easy to find and one could cause a blackout by simply dousing the fire. In a mere 280 or so years, the extraterrestrial lady in red will once again be 34,646,418.5 miles away. I wonder what kind (if any) of earthly human culture will be there to greet her

Destructive Neoliberal Austerity
By Stephen Lendman

Instead of vitally needed stimulus, Washington and European governments dictate austerity. The pretext of deficit reduction is being used to transfer more wealth to those already with too much, plus the usual canard over the urgency to save national banking systems

Who's Behind The Deficit Crisis
By Shamus Cooke

Unless labor and community groups massively mobilize working people in fighting for a pro-worker solution to the deficit crisis, austerity measures-- like reducing Social Security and Medicare -- will be forced upon us

The Windy City Makes Waves For Peace,
Equity And Justice In Palestine
By Stephen Lendman

Working for peace, equity and justice in Israel, Palestine, and America, CJPIP wants as many others committed as possible. The alternative is continued war, occupation, repression, and billions diverted from vital homeland needs

Haiti's Cholera Epidemic: Mounting Illnesses
And Deaths, Inadequate Aid
By Stephen Lendman

In America, especially on TV, Haiti's epidemic gets scant, if any, coverage. In contrast, daily independent news reports are alarming

Unrecognized Palestinians: Illegally Demolishing
Their Homes And Villages
By Stephen Lendman

Evicting Bedouin Arabs and demolishing the homes and villages, based on their nationality and religion, clearly violates their rights under Israeli and international law. Worse still, it's being done solely for Jewish development, showing contempt for Arab citizens, violating basic human rights and freedoms

"Corruption" The Curse On Indian Growth
By Nilendu Mukherjee

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India has submitted to the government the report on the 2G spectrum allotment that may have caused a loss of over Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the exchequer. If we see the magnitude of the 2G spectrum scam against the various budget allocations for 2010-2011, it is really shocking that the country has lost such a huge amount which could have been utilized to support many important issues and help poor people of this country. But this has been hijacked by the vested interest and nexus between the corrupt people who manage the show

Designer Disease : "I Am Wrong"
By Sadanand Patwardhan

After 9/11, the president of USA urged citizens, not to grieve or pray or reflect or volunteer to help, but to go out and shop. Drug industry too wants people to go out and shop. That's why it is telling people - "You are wrong"
