ARE BIG BROTHER AND HIS
LITTLE SISTER (THE MEDIA) WATCHING YOU?
We all know how "great" the media is in digging,
then airing and sensationalizing other people's dirty laundry.
When it comes to the media's own dirty laundry, however, they deny and
play dumb when the tables are turned. In short, this case and web
site is about the media utilizing sophisticated eavesdropping and surveillance
technologies on the Plaintiff and then illegally disseminating the
interceptions to various media affiliates. Think of all
the times you have heard the people in the media cowardly use "unnamed
sources;" well perhaps this satellite surveillance is used
more often than one could imagine. Do not ever expect the media to
discuss this dirty secret.
The case description and links below are intended
to inform the public of the criminal activity and dirty secrets in the
TV and Radio media/broadcasting industry, particularly CNN, ABC, and regional
stations of KVOA, KOLD, KGUN and KNST. This case is now being
appealed to the U.S.
Supreme Court. Both the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the
District Court of Arizona neglected to qualitatively address the core issue
of satellite surveillance, and have effectively provided
the media with protection for this illegal activity. In addition,
judges apparently relied on deceptive statements (perjury) submitted by the media
defendants. The surveillance began approximately April 1995 and the
lawsuit was filed in August 1997.
Satellite surveillance is conducted
by the media most likely in conjunction with some agency of the U.S. Federal
government, such as the Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA) or National Reconnaissance
Office (NRO). The full truth of this behavior yet needs to be
revealed, and if justice prevails, the U.S.
Supreme Court will remand the case and allow for discovery to proceed
in support of the 4th Amendment and privacy rights as well as other issues
in the case for not only the Plaintiff, but all Americans. Meanwhile, consider the 4th Amendment and protection from unreasonable searches and seizure ERASED from the Constitution.
