Re: “Viacom Zaps Suddenlink


I think the issue is bigger than just "is the Daily Show on my cable feed."

If you are a Suddenlink Internet ONLY customer, (no Suddenlink cable service, no Suddenlink phone service), you still cannot go to the website for the Daily Show and watch the free streaming episode posted there for everybody. You get the "you are a Suddenlink customer, go to hell" message from Viacom.

However, if you browse to the same site for the Daily Show via 101 Netlink, or via AT&T, or some other ISP, you can stream the show no problem. I am pretty sure Seth from Netlink is NOT PAYING VIACOM for those of his customers that use their internet to stream a show! So, Viacom is now censoring what you can watch on the internet based on who you your ISP is, and whether or not that ISP service provider also own a cable service that won't "play ball" with Viacom, regardless if you, the affected consumer, are a cable customer or not! I cannot conceive how that is even legal. What does the ISP service people purchase have to do with cable service when they are not a cable customer?

Re: “Good Cops Aren't Afraid of Cameras

If you are interested in a detailed explanation of the federally protected right to photograph in public, and specifically, to photograph the police in public, the Department of Justice 11 page memo to the Baltimore Police Department last year will prove to be a definitive resource.

Re: “Disputed Territory

I have personally heard both Troy and the Yurok Tribal Chair discuss this in depth in public going back a year or more. This is nothing more than an attempt by PEER to make up an issue where there is none. How can it be a land grab when it is Yurok land to begin with, both aboriginally, going back 10,000 years or more, and currently, being located within the boundaries of the legally defined reservation? The illegal land grab happened when Europeans arrived my friends, not when the Tribe tried to regain recognition of their jurisdiction over their own land.
