Reality Through The Eyes Of The Media.

What we see is what they don’t get!fishwrap

With the main stream media going out of business in various ways ( print, radio,24 hr cable) its no wonder why they look to Obama to bail them out , After all they put him in the white house and they want their back scratched!

But there is a reason for them going out of business for example;  MSNBC and their Tax Day coverage and CNN and their first rate reporting! but we should look a little further.

Here was a story from this last week.

Mom says Patriot Act stripped son of due process!

Sixteen-year-old Ashton Lundeby’s bedroom in his mother’s Granville County home is nothing, if not patriotic. Images of American flags are everywhere – on the bed, on the floor, on the wall.

But according to the United States government, the tenth-grade home-schooler is being held on a criminal complaint that he made a bomb threat from his home on the night of Feb. 15.

The family was at a church function that night, his mother, Annette Lundeby, said.

“Undoubtedly, they were given false information, or they would not have had 12 agents in my house with a widow and two children and three cats,” Lundeby said.

Around 10 p.m. on March 5, Lundeby said, armed FBI agents along with three local law enforcement officers stormed her home looking for her son. They handcuffed him and presented her with a search warrant.

“I was terrified,” Lundeby’s mother said. “There were guns, and I don’t allow guns around my children. I don’t believe in guns.”

Lundeby told the officers that someone had hacked into her son’s IP address and was using it to make crank calls connected through the Internet, making it look like the calls had originated from her home when they did not.

Her argument was ignored, she said. Agents seized a computer, a cell phone, gaming console, routers, bank statements and school records, according to federal search warrants.

“There were no bomb-making materials, not even a blasting cap, not even a wire,” Lundeby said.

“We have no rights under the Patriot Act to even defend them, because the Patriot Act basically supersedes the Constitution,” she said. “It wasn’t intended to drag your barely 16-year-old, 120-pound son out in the middle of the night on a charge that we can’t even defend.”

At this point one could start getting a little aggravated with such inflammatory language!215px-His_Girl_Friday_poster If the media was doing their job the story should have been this!

Mom Outraged by Son’s Arrest Reportedly Knew of His Web Stardom for Phone Threats!


 When a North Carolina woman accused the federal government last week of abusing the Patriot Act to imprison her teenage son for allegedly making bomb threats, the mother’s allegation caused quite an uproar, including calls to free 16-year-old Ashton Lundeby.


But a new report by Wired News suggests that, not only was the teenager an online superstar in rogue tech communities for his prank phone calls, but his mother may have known all along that the boy was conspiring with others to make bomb threats.
Lundeby, known online as “Tyrone,” allegedly had progressed into selling his services as a threatmaker, charging schoolchildren from across the country $5 apiece to place threatening, Internet-based phone calls that would cause administrators to shut down their schools, Wired News reports.
“I heard the prank phone calls he made,” his mother, Annette Lundeby, said in the Wired report. “They were really funny prank calls.”   Wired News reports that Ashton was famous in online chat rooms as “Tyrone,” a prank caller who’d patch hundreds of like-minded jokers into Internet-based conference calls where they could listen to him harass employees at Wal-Mart and other stores.     Annette Lundeby admitted to Wired News that she knew Ashton had been making “really funny” prank calls, and that he’d made bomb threats, and that he’d received money for some of the calls — but she said it was all just a joke.
