    IRON CURTAIN: Right Here In The United States

     May 6, 2014 | By: St Augustine



    Iron Curtain, Right Here In The United States


     By: Mary Ellen Beatty | Director of Citizen Outreach
    Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity


    Melissa Genson remembers growing up during the Cold War and learning that, behind the Iron Curtain, the government controlled the media. Citizens of the Soviet Union could only learn what their government wanted them to know.


    Melissa said, in a featured report by Jackie Moreau, the Managing Editor of Watchdog Wire, that she is now worried that American media has forgotten its role as a government watchdog.


    She says that today’s mainstream media is creating its own “Iron Curtain” in this country; so, she decided to join the citizen journalism revolution.


    “My advice to mainstream media is to remember your job.


    Your job is to question those in power, not be their mouthpiece.


    And stop ridiculing the concerns of ordinary people,” Genson told Moreau during their interview.


    “I think it’s too late for a lot of mainstream media.


    The Internet has made citizen journalism accessible, and a viable alternative.


    We have become our own version of Radio Free Europe—just in our own country.”


     
    Genson was credited with the detection and exposure of a local sex offender in her area who was convicted of molesting a 5-year-old boy.


    Genson learned through her inquires that, after he had been accepted into a court-ordered rehabilitation program, the offender resumed unsavory social media activity, violating the terms of his diversion.


    However; at the time of her investigation, she learned that the recidivist offender remains under public protection, because of his alleged remorse.


    Click to read the full interview with Watchdog Wire – Northwest editor, Melissa Genson.


    Today, citizens like Melissa are rising up to tell the stories dismissed by major news outlets.


    She believes it’s more important than ever to ask tough questions and challenge our government’s overreaching authority.

    Boy....


    You and Bill-806 are just full of gloom and doom. If you both think our country is that doomed, maybe you should head north? Or South......

    Please don't send them North. Canada is a beautiful country full of very nice people ( well..except for those pesky Habs fans!). I am planning on spending time with our neighbor to the North very soon so I think our gloom and doomers should go South.

    Fantastic video -V-, Leonard Cohen is a master.


    While I don't agree the the "iron curtain" thing I do think it's a very good thing that the Internet has democratized journalism and allows us to bypass the gatekeepers. It then becomes easy to identify the totalitarian wannabes (i'm looking at you Sen. Markey) and others that want to control us.

    It's also a temple to confirmation bias, littered with misinformation that people lap up and often enough copy/paste here.....


    As was the "journalism" that preceded it. The more diversity of opinion that gets out into the wild the better.

    I agree, SB. It is a beautiful video. It has some of the fundamental things about our lives we all should think about.


    I also agree Leonard Cohen is a master. His "Hallelujah" is one of my favorite songs in the world.


    It is also nice to see someone not trashing -V- for a change.

    Eh, just because I disagree with him on a ton of things doesn't make him a bad person. It's not like he's a lawyer or something (just kidding!!!)
