Golpistas Maintain Form, Close Media Suspend Constitution

It would be fascinating to hear, no strike that, tedious in the extreme to hear how coup supporters argue this is a democratic regime, expelling OAS reps, closing media and suspending the constitution so that –The measure empowers police and soldiers to arrest without a warrant “any person who poses a danger to his own life or those of others”

Not to mention assassination of journalists and the death of a protester from being gassed by police. English speaking corporate media (shall we say anglosphere) are not falling over themselves to translate this news and report it…funny that.

    Considering how biased the corporate medis are in favor of the coup, I’m not surprised many people don’t know what’s going on.

    I’m interested in what that reveals about the political views of corporations, like how many deaths and torture dungeons do they favour as a way of maintaining an orderly consumer market and resource providing workforce? Oddly the corporate media never get into that, never seen a proper interview with a CEO over their true political views/human rights, a real interview not a sales piece in the business press or a shiny profile in a mag.

    It’s staggering to me how completely different the narratives emerging from Honduras are.

    Well you know I think this is one of those lessons, just imagine the disparity in Iraq or Afghanistan too where a nations troops are deployed with even more pressure from basic tribal/nationalist biases. It’s also pretty appalling how supposedly good sources fall into the frame of how this looks to the US ruling class and report from that perspective, I’m sure if Ahmadinejad was besieging the US embassy in Tehran it might be reported differently.
    Major props to all the blogs translating and posting on this, that is the difference between now and the torture regime past, I hope it makes a real difference.
