Their collaborations include investigations into the mercenary aspects of war, media culpability, freedom of information, and international human rights, and seek not only to expose endemic corruption, but also to affect change.

Their bestselling book, The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them, examines the full political spectrum, from The Washington Post to Bill Clinton, in an effort to bring genuine accountability into public discourse.

Standing Up to the Madness celebrates grassroots activists across America and the power of the individual to bring change on a local and national level. – City Arts and Lectures

From House of Lords to Supreme Court

From 31 July 2009, the judicial function of the House of Lords and its role as the final – and highest – appeal court in the UK will end, bringing about a fundamental change to the work and role of the House of Lords.

A new United Kingdom Supreme Court, separating the judicial function from Parliament (those who make the law from those who interpret it in courts), will open in early October 2009 opposite the Houses of Parliament in Parliament Square – formerly the Middlesex Guildhall.

Lord Mance, one of the 12 Law Lords in the House of Lords, outlines the key changes to the judicial role of Parliament.

Fox News Murderabilia Stories Mislead Viewers?

100+ MORE examples of Fox News Bias at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=A3BD2524FE99BD4D

Even though Fox News ran several stories about the “‘Stop the Sale of Murderabilia to Protect the Dignity of Crime Victims Act of 2010” last Friday, none of the stories accurately informed viewers about either the scope of this proposed “murderabilia” law or the source of its likely potential legal challenges as I show in this video.

The Fox News clips I use in this video come from segments on the supposed straight news programs “America’s Newsroom,” “America Live” and “Special Report,” all broadcast on June 18, 2010, with the 3 segments from which I took my clips available at the following 3 links:

http://video.foxnews.com/v/4245088/lawmakers-want-crackdown-on-murderabilia

The image I show of the text of the “‘Stop the Sale of Murderabilia to Protect the Dignity of Crime Victims Act of 2010” cosponsored in the US Senate as S.3468 by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is from http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s3468/text

And, finally, the image I use of the Supreme Court case overturning NY’s “Son of Sam” law, Simon & Schuster v. Crime Victims Board, 502 U.S. 105 (1991), is from http://docs.justia.com/cases/supreme/502/105.pdf
