Viacom Trying to Silence Radio Host

By David Swanson,

Last night I spoke about the Downing Street Minutes on Chris Moore's show at KDKA in Pittsburgh. He has covered the issue since May 1st.

Chris, a Vietnam veteran - unlike the microphone warmongers, has also been consistent in pointing out that we were deceived -- and he did so long before anyone dared say it in the corporate media.

Now management wants him to pay the cost. On Saturday evening he informed his audience that his Saturday evening show will be replaced by a music/talk format to appeal to a younger audience. This in spite of the fact that he is number one in his time slot of those in the 25+ age range.

Please tune in to listen to him on Sunday from 4:30 PM EST to 8:30 PM (when baseball isn't on) and call to support him. Also contact the following on a weekly basis until his show is back on the air on Saturday evenings:

"The Man Who Could Kill YouTube
Bob Tur is the little guy who is suing one giant (Google) to do what another giant (Viacom) probably never will — shut YouTube down.
By Matthew Belloni

A single bottle broke the calm, shattering in the late-afternoon sun. Then another...and another. A few men walked into Tom's Liquor and walked out quicker than would be possible if they'd paid. A family followed, tossing groceries into the intersection of Florence and Normandie in the heart of South Central Los Angeles.

Bob Tur, a pilot and photojournalist, hovered above the unfolding chaos in his helicopter, along with his copilot, his camerawoman wife, his lawyer, and a 9mm semiautomatic pistol. Fifteen years later, he still recalls the details of the scene with the precision of a war memory. There was Larry Tarvin, who was pulled from his truck and kicked in the ribs, shoulder, and face. That's when the shots started. Tur's chopper began taking hits as the throng below pummeled another trucker, Reginald Denny, with a cement block, a tire iron, and a fire extinguisher.

Tur knew this was coming, he says, having spent weeks in advance of the Rodney King verdict interviewing gangbangers, church leaders, whomever, asking what would happen if the jury acquitted four white cops. The Crips told Tur they'd try to kill as many white people as possible. So when the call came at 3:15 p.m. on April 29, 1992, Tur, whose fledgling news-video company was pioneering helicopter coverage of breaking events, knew where to go. He arrived on the scene before anyone else and recorded many of the images people now associate with the L.A. riots. ..."

Can you provide email for viacom and other parent companies. Also, threaten boycott seems a reasonable ploy.

Here's a Letter sent re silencing of Chris moore by Viacom:

Dear Sir or Madam,

My understanding is that this show was number 1 for the 25+ age slot. It seems to be untrue it is replaced because of ratings. Could it have more to do with the fact that that Chris has told the truth consistently about Bush's(and our country's) illegal and immorl;a wars in the Mid East.

This is a lot of talk about moral values these days. How about supporting the moral values of telling the truth and the values of Christ on practing peace and not war and revenge ?

As a follower of Christ I will be forced to boycott your station and its sponsors if you go through with this.

Peace to you,

Br. JBrozer
