The Future of Journalism series: part 4 The worldwide move to paywalls is seen as a temporary solution to journalism’s problems. Quality, not quantity, of information will be key.

The worldwide move to paywalls has been termed by some as a temporary solution to journalism’s problems. Analysing that change, Ken Doctor of the Newsonomics website pointed out last year: “It will be hard to explain to people in 2020 how the early ‘online newspapers’ were free for 15 years. Now the challenge is making them work, and offering the customers more for their money. That’s a big topic for 2014 and the years beyond.”
(HEBRON) The Israeli army has told Al Jazeera that they have found bodies of the three missing teenage settlers near Hebron in the Occupied West Bank.

(WASHINGTON DC) After nearly 40 years of federal and state court battles, after every mainstream news organization towing the establishment line participating in and promoting one propaganda campaign after another in an attempt to quash and marginalize this innovative technology in the public’s eye, after a massive underground astroturfing campaign attempting to do the same, and after the most recent 2013 FDA “inspection” effectively closed the pubic’s ability to gain access to Antineoplastons (ANP)—science has once again prevailed.
Politicians in the United States allow the Veterans Administration to operate at substandard levels, the results for former military personnel are devastating.

(SALEM) Everywhere in America the signs are present… Homeless Veterans fill shelters, wandering the streets of the nation they swore to protect and serve. Young people seduced by the illusion of military heroism never have the reality of Veteran life revealed to them by tall talking recruiters. Steeped in lies and trained to deceive at all costs, recruiters keep their mouths shut with regard to the life devastating reality that will face most who serve. For many there are few answers, or none at all. The challenges become too vast; this is why suicide is such an innate problem in the Veteran community.

(COLOMBO) The Sri Lankan military has announced that they have received information that certain politicians are attempting to divulge names of intelligence units and pin blame on them for the Aluthgama debacle in an obvious effort to create distrust and bring further chaos. It smacks memory of Aturugiriya and reminds us of how UNP for cheap publicity ended up exposing the entire intelligence of the army and killing 44 intelligence personnel.

(WASHINGTON DC) New York City’s mayor, William De Blasio has stressed that he is a progressive, committed to making life better for minorities and the poor. Yet ever since taking office in January, he has launched a crusade against a vehicle which has the ability to rescue poor and minority children from failing public schools.
The “highlights” of the California lawsuit are critical that families dealing with this epidemic recognize that unless there is accountability by government agencies in the form of lawsuits, this epidemic will continue to run wild — with profiteers benefiting and recruiting more “snake oil salesmen” to destroy your lives.

For the past 12 years I have been exposing Purdue Pharma for criminally marketing their highly addictive opioid, OxyContin to the medical profession and patients through their physician spokespersons and funded pain foundations.
“The first thing I do in any town I come to is ask if it has a bookstore,” (Robert Frost). In his time, most towns of any size had one or more bookstores.
Once again mainstream media either has no clue, or is distorting information on the current situation in Iraq, which is one of the reasons a recent Gallup poll indicated a whopping 77% distrust mainstream media TV news. It is no wonder when mainstream media parade in front of us the same cast of characters that brought us the lies that led to a series of Iraq wars and all the tragedies that followed. Mainstream media considers them as “experts” even though they have a history of being dead wrong or of being liars. Rather than have them paraded in front of us as “experts” they should be paraded in front of the World Court as war criminals, mass murderers, and liars, but the US and Israel refused to join in the World Court for fear of being charged. As members, they would be standing in judgment before the World Court for their murderous acts. Certainly most Americans realize mainstream media is part of the sham, thus the public’s callous disregard and contempt of mainstream media.
Touting its commitment to religious freedom like a broken record, US politicians and administrations continue supporting murderous, “religious” fanatics.

World order is contingent upon freedom, a concept the American government has claimed to represent for more than two hundred years — the same US government that eradicated the Native American culture in the world’s largest and longest genocide. Sadly, now, as it was then, America’s claims are a ruse and a bloody lip for humanity. In truth, the American government is doing, and has been doing, everything in its range of power to contaminate the world with its political and corporate greed. There are no rules or boundaries, and the worst part of all is the fact that the United States funds and fuels the violent acts of religious extremists without batting an eyelash, and it is costing the world dearly.
