All of the winners of the “news blog tests”, a case where “less is more”.

Although not a part of the test, look at this, a ‘retired lady editor’ (Rady Ananda) a with-no-budget-blogger eloquently wrote what none of the * failed * “news” organizations could write:

Extinctions, Over-Population and the Profit Paradigm | COTO Report

coto2.wordpress.com/…/extinctionsover-population-and-the-profit-para…

Nov 22, 2009 – Of the five categories of these activities, the world’s wealthy focus on … The distinction is that our species seems to be rushing others to their fate. … rules that will enable monopoly control for the host corporation while decriminalizing their ….. BuildingWhat.org · Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility …

Now look at the chart above… What someone in the COTO group was blogging about in 2009 now seems to be one of the most censored, blacklisted, black-balled or completely ignored topics online, on radio and TV. How can people change if you hide all of the truth from them? Hypothetically, will females glass ceilings; man-hate and gayness still trump Peak Clean Water in a post-human world?

The winning news entities have or had some feel for global human over-population issues and resource shortages in the current and next generations. The failure sites were to busy with she bashing he, the gay center of our universe, etc. to notice impending extinction. They do know the industrialized, high-tech peoples will die first, right?

Digital Journal’s propensity to find and publish small stories like Maryland STD’s, Montana Drunk Drivers, etc. should be repeated by others. And the last time I looked, tiny ethnic minorities (like US-resident Serbs, Thais, Tubatulabal Native Americans, etc.), Men and Children are supposed to be covered by the US Constitution. Gay Rights and Women’s Rights rolled in oats and deep-fried 52 weeks a year is male, child and ethnic-minority discriminatory. Most of you have given 2-billion persons worth of news coverage to women busting a real or imagined glass ceiling on a death bound planet.

Meanwhile, straight white men can draw Huffingtonpost.com paychecks writing articles about pregnancy, menstrual cycles and birthing; though nobody will refer to them as “brave heroes” as they “did not die saving the riding horses of the upper classes”…

Digressing back to the chart above, women writing about my “men’s rights” and my “men’s concerns” – shame on Huffingtonpost.com, salon.com, et al for thinking women (about 50% of “men’s rights” writers are women), as the best man for the job of men’s rights writers. Misandry oozes from these “rights” and “anti-hate” publications.

Chart was concocted and assembled using Thomas Athey Systematic Systems approach. Those blogs who failed, you content farm failed yourselves. Thomas Athey’s Systematic Systems Analysis method inspired a “random wildcard” category. Digital journal not only excelled in this category, they saved themselves from an overall failure score by excelling in “wildcard news categories”.

Under violence against women, huffingtonpost.com has article after article flaming this man or that male Nebraska politician for failure to reign in violence against women. Uhum… An obvious flaw… huffingtonpost.com seems dominated, permeated by females bashing men, huffingtonpost.com could be labeled the most misandrist of all the sites tested. Most of the failed sites bash men incessantly but coddle the nuke industry.

Apparently, men are like a MOX fuel rods and a MOX fuel rods are like a dad, husband and a writer. The “most successful news blogs in America” fight dads, husbands and male writers like the black plague; but embrace MOX; a pox upon you! One of the obvious things building the chart taught me is Doctors Doug Rokke, Helen Caldicott, Dr. Peter Bein, Chris Busby and Arnie Gundersen are systematically trashed or erased or censored by all the big “news” corporations; but the little nobody, nothing minions at said “news” content farms are allowed to be wannabe Nobel Laureates in Nuclear Physics and Internal Medicine. To these sycophant “newsier” all beams, alpha, beta and gamma are “green” beams, as harmless as “green beans”. Conversely, Doctors Doug Rokke, Helen Caldicott, Dr. Peter Bein, Chris Busby and Arnie Gundersen shine “harmful red rays” everywhere they go; aka “Red Scare beams”. The MSM’s court jesters write apologist piece after another on Pharma’s dollars, said Lamestream writers are “experts” but never mention drugs and LD50’s in their “expert” news rags. Fukushima is safe with no LD50’s of Plutonium or MOX ever mentioned. “Helen is not really a scientist” as if the writer knows what an LD50 means, from years of working with such values (“unlike Helen”). Trash journalism, more than just myself needs to keep a running tally of who lies the most compared to one-another; otherwise Big Nuke and “green” electric cars hooked up to Big Nuke will write the articles for us… Or maybe you prefer reading Salons’ pastes of FoxNews’ paste of Infowars’ paste of Rense’s paste of Salon?

I hope at least a few persons can appreciate Wall Street Journal, Salon.com and Huffington Post bested by Thepeoplesvoice.com, Activistpost.com and Digital Journal; this last winning in the category of ‘human interest’ wildcard categories (each category, separately does not drive huge Google Ad Sense profits. But the site had so many tiny, locale issue articles they were just too good to fail) The wildcard category was largely news “too small” for MSM’s, aka our real lives out here in reality. Real people, real issues count, to some of us. I so hope all of these wining sites publish more interviews with Piotr Bein, Helen Caldicott, author or solicit articles on human over population metrics, etc. Conversely, if Huffington Post or Salon ever have just men writing men’s issues (screamingly uncensored) or quote Helen Caldicott in her entirety rather than having a wannabe scientist judging Ms. Caldicotts science expertise. The best doctors “are really” scientists (really)… For a blogger to go national with “she is not * really * a scientist, she is a holoperson from the holodeck of the imaginary, holo Enterprise and she only knows about hands-on treating of holo humans with holo radiation, not, y’know, * real * radiation… I wanted to gag, but we all have our faults. Said gal could be from Huffpo or Salon.com, my short term memory is also a holo memory, as I do not * really * have a short term memory. Fortunately for all of us, said gal was only a holo journalist.

God in her infinite wisdom assigned us journalists intent on misleading or deceiving us as we go extinct. Most of them are here, simultaneously foaming at the mouth with faux nationalistic pride and a desire to drag all of us to hell with themselves. The seven winner sites are exceptions to that trend, I wish I had a more clever way of saying so…. I cannot do what they do; making the chart took days as I had to read, a lot, quickly. The scores are based on many dozens or more of articles, so very not just a few per entity. By the time I failed some, I was ready to vomit at web-page load time (advertisements and javascripts to drive ads) and at the ego, gall, idiocy and hubris. There is a distinct difference between failed and passed news sites.Nebraska Woman Battery was chosen first, blindly then searches were done for “host: huffingtonpost.com violence against women Nebraska”. Not one of the women writers at huffingtonpost.com used Nebraska’s first place in America with violence against women in an article; but most bludgeoned any guy they could blame. No mention of gay batterers or male domestic violence victims. No mention of mothers who beat kids, rather the MSM went for battered, perfect Barbie. At the very least, a “perfect mother” who prefers paychecks to getting her babies far from the batterer. My mother was both, batterer and hoarder of her co-batterers paychecks; she was “batterer-in-chief”, 7-8 times as violent as Dad. According to numerous MSM articles, such women went extinct, now. Such things are only spawned in male. But anyone who does the apologist she was less violent than the guy missed the boat by thousands of miles. Do woman like my mother here in 2013 “deserves more, need expanded rights”? It seems this is where these pastes of pastes of pastes trendsetters wish to propel all of us…

Most of the female’s writers wrote articles bashing men; none wrote about lesbian domestic partner abusers. Huffingtonpost.com requires no thought of you. Two Huffpost women “care” so much about violence against women that they could not be bothered to mention which state has the worst record, or which ten states. The notion that “it is male politicians fault” that females journalists who are often in front of TV Camera’s are to ineffectual to Google “worst state violence against females” and too dishonest to find out the percentage of lesbian on lesbian violence.

There must have been 15+ articles raging on men, written by women too lazy to research that Nebraska is woman-beating central. Not one woman at huffingtonpost.com wrote about Nebraska woman beating… All of the red, failure “news” is full of glaring, similar holes.

Many of you routinely cover up Pharma deaths, Nuke Industry, Gaza Genocide with half-truths, lies and innuendo. 200,000 Americans die per year from Pharma (minimum, could be as high as 400,000) so most of you blindly rally around guns while ignoring texting drivers.

To the losers, an example: a non-scientist female writing “Helen Caldicott is not a scientist…” What is wrong with quoting the Caldicott woman rather than merely devaluing her? The pattern repeated in article after article, HuffPo as apologist left wing gatekeeper.  Can we extrapolate a writer at a loser news blog * is * a scientist and poor Helen Caldicott, a mere MD with experience treating radiation sickness as a licensed, bona fide doctor * is not * a ‘scientist’? Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Meanwhile, the feminist rights and gay rights crowd at Salon and Huffpo are dancing and writhing around carrying the Golden Pig of Entitlement, all the while singing Ra is god, I am god while poor black and ethnic minority troops die like fleas in Afghanistan, along with poor, black, white and Hispanic firefighters. Thousands of poor prison inmates shall fight fires in Globally Warmed Industrial America while gays and women write men’s rights articles.

The most important development in the 20th Century is to trust in the corporation, trust in the MSM, trust in courts, cops, government and military implicitly; doubt yourself and your own inner convictions. Once you can do this with all your heart, mind, body and soul you are ready for Huffpo or Salon. You cannot trust your own corrupt, polluted soul; you can only find “salvation” in succumbing to external authority… You were put here to serve rich others; they will “take care of” the Planet for you. Go back to sleep, radiation is safe, war is safe, the terrorists we create are safe. The only real danger to you stems from non-compliance. Comply… we will assimilate you, resistance is futile, we are the authorities…

Tracy Turner was born into two extended families of bookworms – one horticultural and one petroleum industry. Semi-retired from IT, Corporate Analyst and Botanical Garden Plant Propagation. Among his many interests are all sciences, news, tracking political corruption, national and world events (corruption). Urges you to ask several USA IT professionals about web censorship; which is becoming rampant. Twitter, Facebook and Myspace are not free speech – they are places of monitoring, censoring and personal data harvesting. Also, just because you see your words in print online, it does not equate to “free speech”. Do you believe Google and Bing blacklist Michael Taylor’s online words as often as said censors blacklist your online “free speech”? If you love freedom, become active in corruption watch, exposure; free speech and freedom of the press activism.
