- Note - Most everyone is aware of the
intense propaganda both sides are using in the NATO attacks on Yugoslavia.
Never have official government and mainstream media stories in a conflict
come under closer scrutiny. We continue to attempt to present relevant
stories from all sides. Here is a message from what is called the 'Belgrade
Academic Association For Equal Rights.'
- Dear friends, We are Belgrade Academic
Association for Equal Rights in the World, which fights for peace and equality
of all people in the world. As non-government organization we want to inform
you about all happenings in Yugoslavia in the principals of truthful informing.
- Unfortunately, large media companies
are conducting well-prepared information manipulation in order to hide
large devastations and civilian casualties from world's public.
- Targets of NATO bombers are also civilians
- Serbians and Albanians. Their houses, schools, hospitals and churches
are being demolished. We truly regret if we are disturbing you by this
e-mail, and we are inviting you to visit our web-sites: www.aic.org.yu
and www.barw.org.yu If you are interested, send us your opinions and observations
via e-mail. Our e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org

- CNN And BBC: Examples Of 'Free' Media
- This article is just starting point for
some people still believing in 'INDEPENDENT and FREE' media.
- Just a few years ago, people in Yugoslavia
were watching CNN as the most professional television in the world. It
was before they experienced 'filmed truth' on their own back.
- Just a few years ago, several radio and
TV stations in Serbia looked up on satellite TVs as an 'exemplar' of democracy.
But something went wrong. Those independent stations forgot to report about
slaughtering over Serbs from Croatia. Over 600.000 Serbs were driven from
Croatia in just 2 days.
- Satellite TVs 'didn't work' then. Columns
of refugees were bombed on their way to Serbia by the Croatian air force.
But this massacre was not on TV. At the same time, in Bosnia raged civil
war. But this time, TV took played its part. And 'Oscar' goes to CNN for
black comedy: The 'Markale massacre.'
- I was amazed while cheery people, LIVE,
put their 'dead' store dummies into the trucks. The price of Oscar was
celebrated by bombing Bosnian Serbs. In years of starving caused by sanctions,
instead of food and medicines 'free' media organized humanitarian help
for 'independent' media in Serbia. They sent paper, press machines and
- The latest episode of this tragic serial
is the 'refugee crisis' in Kosovo. Dark faces of western reporters supported
story about thousands, who cares, millions of poor, poor people running
away from scary Serbs. But nobody mentioned they started to flee on March
24. If they fled year ago, as 'free' media claim, where they were till
now? UNHCR reported 600.000 refugees from Kosovo, Albanian and Serbs, since
NATO start bombing Yugoslavia. Maybe it is not good enough for news!?
- Let's have a look on actors in this drama.
50 to 100 same faces, every night, from different parts of Kosovo, well-dressed,
women with full make-up. Show must go on!
- I was shocked watching Albanian refugees
heading to border through snow in ULCINJ !!! Lesson from geography: Ulcinj
is in Republic of Montenegro, on Adriatic coast with average temperature
over 20 C (72 F) ! But apparently everything is possible...even snow at
22 Celsius degree.
- One day later, I read on CNN web site
about NATO attack on NOVI SAD, 'second largest city on Kosovo' (southern
Serbian province). I'm really sorry, but Novi Sad is capital of northern
Serbian province Vojvodina.
- Maybe is just coincidence that CNN reports
from Kosovo match-up with State Department policy...but recently married
CNN's raising star Christiane Amanpour and the State Department's James
Rubin cover the same "breaking news" stories.
- At the same time, as BBC and CNN reporters
from Aviano and NATO headquarters reporting with smile about demolished
'military' targets (civilian buildings, bridges, schools, hospitals...),
worried Chistiane Amanpour talking about 'refugees catastrophe.' She forgot
to mention that 'free media' and NATO created it.
- Tonight, more then 40.000 Albanian 'refugees'
supposedly 'disappeared' from a camp near border on Macedonian soil. What
a mystery. Someone should call Mulder and Scully from X-files. Macedonian
citizens unfortunately solved case: 40.000 Albanian refugees were actors
from Macedonia itself (1/3 of population in Macedonia is Albanians). After
Yugoslav authorities called cease-fire, 'refugees' simply went home.
- So, people, wake up! I'm not talented
for film or I would direct so-called drama better then CNN. I'll give you
one more story to think about (you will not found that on CNN or BBC).
- CNN DID NOT PERMIT THIS SHOCKING STORY
TO REACH AMERICANS. REPORTER BRYAN SADLER WAS INTERRUPTED IN THE MIDDLE
OF HIS LIVE REPORT FROM THE SCENE, AS SOON AS HE MENTIONED THAT THERE WERE
MANY CIVILIAN VICTIMS IN THE NATO STRIKE ON ALEKSINAC.
- MOTHER OF TWO CHILDREN TRAPPED IN CELLAR,
DIGS WAY OUT
- ALEKSINAC - A mother and her two children
lie in hospital, after she dug a way out of the cellar over which her house
collapsed, when it was hit by US guided missiles.
- Vukica Miladinovic and her family had
rushed down to the cellar, in the nick of time. It was a direct hit. When
she came to after the strike, Vukica realised they were all buried under
the ruins of the house, she told camera reporters.
- Though seriously injured herself, her
immediate thought was the children. In the meantime, the boiler exploded
and they began to suffocate. The bewildered mother began to struggle out
from underneath the debris, to escape what had become a tomb. Hands bloody,
she clawed a hole to pull out her daughter and son. The fate of her other
three family members is still unknown.
