CNN's Jeanne Moos Has
Taken the Blue Pill

By Michael Goodspeed
I always wondered what it would feel like to have my work distorted by a prominent member of the mainstream news media, and now I know.
On August 4, 2009, CNN.com posted a video segment by reporter Jeanne Moos entitled "Obama the Joker." The video can be viewed at the following link (it's the first result on the search page)  
The topic is the recent broad distribution of posters featuring President Obama with Joker makeup and the words "Why So Socialist?", apparently in reference to Obama's health care plan.
Moos features clips of brief interviews with supposedly random people on the street, all of whom express disgust over the posters. At around the fifty second mark, she introduces a brief clip of my video, "Joker Says, Thanks for the Blue Pills," with the words, "Shame doesn't seem to be inhibiting critics." Moos concludes her two minute piece with an eight second clip of me duplicating Ledger's iconic Joker laugh.
My video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVTw5ocpz5U
But I have news for Jeanne Moos: My video had nothing -- zilch, zero -- to do with the infamous Obama/Joker posters. In fact, when I posted my video on YouTube on July 24th, I HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THE OBAMA/JOKER POSTER. As I specifically explained in the video description box, my video was a satire aimed directly at Obama's apparent reference to the movie The Matrix with his remark: "the blue pill works better than the red pill", with the blue pill representing his health care plan (HENCE THE TITLE OF THE VIDEO). My verbatim video description reads: "The Joker has actually seen The Matrix. And he says, 'You are getting VERY....SLEEEEEPPPYYYYY.....' (NOTE: For those of you who don't know or have forgotten, in the movie The Matrix, the Red Pill will awaken and liberate you, and the Blue Pill will put you back to sleep.

As many on the Internet know, I have been portraying the Joker for MANY months, beginning in February of 2009. My previous YouTube account CometStardust1975 featured three Joker videos, but was inexplicably suspended in March of this year. I reposted one of my Joker presentations on a new YouTube account on March 28, 2009, as you can see for yourself at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=da8hdLlX1h4 . And my latest YouTube account GoodspeedActing features around a half dozen Joker videos, with the earliest posted on June 13 -- again, long beore I (or probably anyone else) had ever heard of the "Why So Socialist" posters.
So let me repeat: I clearly explained the point of my video in the official description box, and it had nothing to do with the Obama Joker posters, nor did I ever label Obama or his health care plan as "socialist." In fact, I find the posters more than a little creepy and disturbing. My video was a mild and APOLITICAL satire, inspired by THE MATRIX. I simply found the President's choice of words funny, given the iconic significance of the red pill/blue pill scenario. I'm not a right wing critic, as your news report clearly implied. And no, I don't feel any shame over my performance, Jeanne Moos, because I've nothing to be ashamed of. But a journalist who wittingly distorts another person's work and viewpoint certainly does.
Trust me Jeanne -- the red pill (reality) isn't nearly as scary as you think.
It is absolutely critical that we AMERICANS reaffirm in one another our absolute sacred right to criticize public officials in a manner that SOME might find tasteless. Jeanne Moos' report is nothing more than brutal psychological bullying. She uses the tired pseudo-journalist's trick of interviewing the "common man and woman" on the street to express the viewpoints that she and her network so desperately seek to inject into their viewers. Moos plainly advocates that anyone who criticizes or makes fun of Obama should feel "shame." The irony is that I am an apolitical person who long ago denounced the false dilemmas of Republican vs. Democrat and conservative vs. liberal, yet Moos blatantly lumps me in with Rush Limbaugh and other right wing critics. And the mainstream news elitists wonder why so many millions of discerning Americans have stopped watching their networks and now rely EXCLUSIVELY on the Internet for information.

CNN's big mouthpiece, Jeanne Moos, has a long history of bullying and swinging her massive club around, as well as openly distorting facts without fear of consequences. She gets away with it because her misleading "reporting" and hatchet jobs are loosely disguised as "humor." This has been going on for years.  In a Moos 1996 "clip," she moved to completely destroy the successful new business of Sean Dix, a NYC inventor of dental products.  After 12 years, he remains in a state of financial ruin because of her clip, in which she also resorted to her faked "pseudo-journalist's trick" of interviewing "common" people - at that time it was dentists. It was later discovered that one of those dentists was her personal dentist, and the men were given misleading information about the Dix products.
Through Moos, CNN unfairly trashed the Dix flossing products repeatedly on national TV. One dentist later recanted in writing, stating he endorsed the superior Dix products. CNN, however, refused to air this.
Very few know that the Dix products were proven to remove 31% more plaque than Johnson & Johnson's, and were poisedto take the flossing industry away from J&J, a long-time sponsor of CNN.  An impressed former J&J director stated the Dix products had an estimated sales value of at least $100 million annually.
To date, CNN has refused to issue a correction. The Dix products remain honored in the Smithsonian's National Museum of Dentistry but were "pulled" from national store shelves following the Moos piece.  25 Of the largest law firms in the US have refused to help Dix because they are all on retainer to CNN or J&J or both.
The superior Dix products remain forgotten and just out of our easy reach.
CNN: "The Most Trusted Name in News," plus J&J: "The Most Trusted Name in . . . " (fill in the blank). The questions to be asked are how many truths have they twisted, how many lies have they told, how many lives have they destroyed, how much news have they kept from us, how many decent new products have they kept from the marketplace, how long has the so-called "news" been used as a tool to steer viewers toward a corporate giant's inferior products - and why?  Along with being a sponsor, J&J has (coincidentally?) stated more than once it is a partner to CNN.
