CBS FAKE DOCS SWING ELECTION?

Los Angeles, CA Prominent Internet bloggers traded counter punches on the CBS report recently released on the Dan Rather fake documents scandal on this part two of a Full Disclosure special program. At issue was whether or not the report, written by former U. S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, should have concluded whether the documents were forgeries and intended to throw the Presidential election.

Hosted by Emmy Award winning Leslie Dutton, this Full Disclosure Special on Internet bloggers, featured retired L. A. Times senior writer Kenneth Reich, who hosts a blog called “Take Back the Times” and Michael Williams, whose popular blog entitled “Master of None” is visited daily by fifteen hundred people world wide.

When asked by Dutton if it is it likely that more heads will roll at CBS over the document scandal, Ken Reich says yes, he feels that CBS President Heyward’s future is uncertain and that he probably felt an obligation to allow Dan Rather to stay on so he could leave with some good grace. Reich also noted that Rather was very embarrassed by it all and after 25 years at CBS may have stayed on the job too long.

Blogger Williams wondered if Dan Rather was embarrassed because he was tricked or embarrassed because he was caught and how many other Rather stories were unproven, unfounded or just sloppy and biased.

This part two of the program is set to air world-wide on the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week starting on Tuesday, February 1, 2005 on the website at http://www.fulldisclosure.net

BLOGGERS LEAD THE MEDIA REVOLT

Los Angeles, CA Internet Bloggers are bringing accountability to the regular news media according to Michael Williams, whose popular Blog entitled “Master of None” is visited daily by fifteen hundred or more people worldwide. During a two part Blogging Special Full Disclosure cable and internet television program Williams said bloggers are playing an important role by acting as fact checkers when competing news outlets have refused to criticize one another’s mistakes.

Also appearing on the program is prominent L. A. Times senior writer (retired) Kenneth Reich who told Full Disclosure that he started his Blog, which is called “Take Back the Times”, because he felt the Chicago based Tribune management, which owns L.A. Times, is doing a great disservice to the newspaper by ordering severe cutbacks and refusing to meet with long time Times staff members for their input.

In this part one of the program, Internet Bloggers were described as watchdogs who come from every walk of life, contributing their particular experience, professional and technical knowledge to shed light on issues of the day and in the media. Part two of the program is a discussion of the CBS Thornburgh Report on the Dan Rather media scandal.

Emmy Award winning Full Disclosure host Leslie Dutton prodded both Reich and Williams to describe the media revolt and circumstances that are challenging the powerful forces who have controlled the traditional news media.

This part one of the program is set to air world-wide on the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week starting on Tuesday, January 25, 2005 on the website at http://www.fulldisclosure.net

LAUSD’s $238 MILLION BELMONT DEMOLISHED

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO ON INTERNET at www.fulldisclosure.net

Los Angeles, CA In late December 2004 the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) began demolishing approximately one third of the new and never occupied Belmont High School campus which has cost taxpayers $238 million to build with another $110 million for partial demolition and reconstruction.

The demolition of Belmont went virtually unnoticed by the Los Angeles news media and the community because it took place just a few days before Christmas when most people were preoccupied wrapping holiday gifts and attending to activities of the season.

The LAUSD Facilities Division refused the FULL DISCLOSURE NETWORK requests to gain access to the site to videotape the demolition activity. The entire site was blocked off to the public view by chain link fences covered with green tarp and topped with barbed wire—the full perimeter. Some of demolished buildings were built atop an earthquake fault on the 35-acre site in downtown Los Angeles, formerly known as the Los Angeles Oil Field, which is plagued with toxic hazards such as methane gas and hydrogen sulfide.
However, the Full Disclosure Cable Television Network was able to shoot aerial video footage of the demolition and will begin showing an exclusive five-minute video, of the destruction of the controversial Belmont High School buildings starting Wednesday, January 19, 2005. The video can be viewed by accessing the Demolition Video link on our detail page. Experts estimate that with the cost to remediate the toxic hazards, cost overruns and change orders, the final cost of Belmont (renamed Vista Hermosa) could come to half a billion dollars.
