Does anyone remember the childhood story about the little boy who cried wolf?

The Role Of The Media

CBS Reporter Scott Pelley: "But the American people, sir, believe that your country is a terrorist nation, exporting terrorism in the world. You must have known that visiting the World Trade Center site would infuriate many Americans."

Mahmoud Ahmedinejad: "Well, I'm amazed. How can you speak for the whole of the American nation? You are representing a media and you're a reporter. The American nation is made up of 300 million people. There are different points of view over there."

The Law Of Cause And Effect

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide rates for girls ages 10-14 from 2003 to 2004 jumped 76 percent. There were 94 suicides in that age group in 2004, compared to 56 in 2003.

Suicide rates among all American young people, ages 10 to 24, fell 28 percent from 1990-2003.

But in 2004 it shot back up, driven largely by increases among females aged 10-19 and males aged 15-19.


You would think, if you read this sterile article from another corporate paid "journalist", that this fact arose from nowhere, as a result of nothing. The Associated Press and other corporate-owned news outlets like to pretend that the law of cause and effect does not exist or, at least, they would like us to think as much.

From a review of prescription drug claims for some 370,000 boys and girls ages 10-19, increases were also seen in drugs for attention deficit disorder (ADHD) drugs, antidepressants, type 1 diabetes, antipsychotics, and sleep aids -- with girls leading the growth in all of those drug classes.

Cause and effect?
