    IS GEO PART OF CIA PSY-OPS? by Moin Ansari Updated August 11th, 2008

    Geo was started with the help of an ex US Naval Petty Officer by the name of Hazinski who has

    links with Mr. Casper Weinberger and many Indian channels.

    | NEW YORK | RUPEE NEWS | January 2nd, 2008 | Moin Ansari| Just because it is in Urdudoesnt make it true! Just because it was broadcast by a Pakistani channel doesnt make it

    right! Just because it shows the Pakistani flag doesnt mean it it loyal to Pakistan or

    patriotic.

    QUESTIONS GEO CANNOT ANSWER: Why does Geo collude with foreign media? Whydoes it focus on creating chaos and general discontent? Why does it act like an instrument of anpoliticalparty? Why does Geo behave like the arm of a foreign force? Why did Geo deliberately

    broadcast falsebad news about the economy when the stock market was booming? What handdid Geo play in scaring the foreign investors away from Pakistan? Why did Geo repeat the falsenews about the growth figures which led to the crash of the stock market? Why does Geo showwrong Pakistani maps? Why does Geo almost never cover the insurgencies in India? Why is Geoso infatuated with Anti-Pakistan Bollywood films? Why is Geo bent upon creating aIndianization of Pakistan? Why does Geo pay so much attention to Bollywood? Why does Geoshow dead bodies? Is this all part of a psy-op or is it part of an agenda? Mr. Husain Haqqani ofthe Hudson institute is on the payroll of JINSA and AIPAC (public information posted on RupeeNews) is a known neocon with his own agenda. His wife Ms. Isphani is involved with VOA andGeo pursuing the same Neocon agenda.

    A company is known by the company it keeps. Geo certainty deals with some colorfulcharacters. Its genesis, consultants, and affiliations leave much to be desired.

    We have attempted to put together a thesis and a case on why Geo has exacerbated theconditions in Pakistan and why it is biased. The article discusses the origins of Geo and itsconnections with shady operatives. We present the actual proof of the affiliates of Geo. Theinformation on the CIA psy-ops discusses how the CIA operates in other countries.

    THE COVERT US INTERVENTION IN PAKISTAN IS CONFIRMED BY THE NY

    TIMES OF JAN 6th, 2008

    Quote:

    At the White House and the Pentagon, officials see an opportunity in the changing power

    structure for the Americans to advocate for the expanded authority in Pakistan, a nuclear-armedcountry. After years of focusing on Afghanistan, we think the extremists now see a chance forthe big prize - creating chaos in Pakistan itself, one senior official said.

    The new options for expanded covert operations include loosening restrictions on the C.I.A. tostrike selected targets in Pakistan, in some cases using intelligence provided by Pakistanisources, officials said. Most counter-terrorism operations in Pakistan have been conducted by theC.I.A.; in Afghanistan, where military operations are under way, including some with NATOforces, the military can take the lead.

    The legal status would not change if the administration decided to act more aggressively.However, if the C.I.A. were given broader authority, it could call for help from the military ordeputize some forces of the Special Operations Command to act under the authority of theagency. NY Times Jan. 6th, 2007

    In the 1980s, President Zia ul Haq was blown up in a military plane and Benazir Bhutto becamethe Prime Minister. However she was fired from her job for corruption.

    Quote:

    ISLAMABAD: Was Benazir Bhuttos assassination part of a larger international conspiracy to

    destabilise and de-nuclearise Pakistan? This is the question that boggles many minds even in thegovernment circles.

    Although, the government has fixed the responsibility on Baitullah Mehsud and al-Qaeda on thebasis of a telephonic conversation reportedly monitored by intelligence agencies, somegovernment officials really smell a ***.

    It is not important to see who is pulling the trigger, also dont bother much about the hiredassassin. What is really important is to reach the hand that pulled the strings, an official sourcesaid, believing that foreign factor (not al-Qaeda) could not be ruled out in this high-profileassassination that has badly shaken Pakistan.

    The Pakistan Peoples Party and spokesmen of Baitullah Mehsud and al-Qaeda had alreadyrejected the interior ministrys assertion, which had been further contradicted by certain news

    reports that claimed that the slain leader was in contact with Mehsud.

    A senior journalist, Hamid Mir, even confirmed this fact in his column in Jang that appeared onlast Monday. He also revealed the startling fact he was told by Benazir Bhutto before her deaththat she was informed by the Americans that Washington did not want the restoration of deposedchief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

    PPP spokesman Farhatullah Babar, when contacted, although did not rule out internationaldimension to Benazirs killing but he was more convinced that it was a heinous plot hatched

    inside Pakistan. Ansari Abbasi in The News

    OLD CIA DIRTY TRICKS DEPT. & CIA DOLLARS CREATE DEMONSTRATIONS:

    Tons of money was sent to Pakistan for a well organized campaign to launch streetdemonstrations against President Musharraf. Mr. Ahmed Quraishi has quoted $500 million infunds were disbursed. As in 1979, during the PNA demonstration millions of Dollars weredispersed among professional agitators. Uzbek and Tajiks were recruited to create mayhem inPakistan.

    -A shadowy group called the BLA, a Cold War relic, rose from the dead to restart a separatistwar in southwestern Pakistan. . Bugtis death was a blow to neo-BLA, but the shadowy groupsbackers didnt repent. His grandson, Brahmdagh Bugti, is currently enjoying a safe shelter in the

    Afghan capital, Kabul, where he continues to operate and remote-control his assets in Pakistan.

    -Saboteurs trained in Afghanistan have been inserted into Pakistan to aggravate extremistpassions here, especially after the Red Mosque operation.

    -Chinese citizens continue to be targeted by individuals pretending to be Islamists, when noknown Islamic group has claimed responsibility. . A succession of religious rebels with

    suspicious foreign links have suddenly emerged in Pakistan over the past months claiming to bePakistani Taliban. Some of the names include Abdul Rashid Ghazi, Baitullah Mehsud, and

    now the Maulana of Swat. Some of them have used, and are using, encrypted communicationequipment far superior to what the Pakistani military owns.Money and weapons have been fed into the religious movements and al-Qaeda remnants in thetribal areas.

    -Exploiting the situation, assets within the Pakistani media started promoting the idea that the

    Pakistani military was killing its own people. The rest of the unsuspecting media quickly pickedup this message. Some botched US and Pakistani military operations against al-Qaeda thatcaused civilian deaths accidentally fed this media campaign.This was the perfect timing for thelaunch of Military, Inc: Inside Pakistans Military Economy, a book authored by Ayesha SiddiqaAgha, a columnist for a Pakistani English-language paper and a correspondent for JanesDefence Weekly, a private intelligence service founded by experts close to British intelligence.

    The media has been unleashed about the so called instability in Pakistan creating a justification

    for continued and more abrasive offensive action in South Asia. This to create instability inPakistan that will be used as an excuse to continue the perpetual mimetic warfare in the Muslimworld. Pakistan has been facing the brunt of the US initiative to implement Democracy in

    Pakistan even though the credentials of the champions of democracy are very weak. NeitherEgypt, nor Uganda, nor Congo, nor Haiti, nor Taiwan, nor China nor Israel nor Russia face theUS medias pontification on how great democracy is. This expose of Geo origins has tries touncover the reasons why Geo acts so strangly.

    Geo employs a lot of good reporters, but it also employs program hosts whose credentials andloyalty to Pakistan is questionable. For example Mr. Shaharyar Azhar is a known follower ofNeocon philosophy and ideas always highlighting the negative news about Pakistan and nottaking India or other countries to task. There are reports in the press that Geo has beeninstrumental in the campaign of disinformation about Pakistan. It has become a willing orunwilling instrument of those who wanted to destabilize Pakistan. The governemnt of Pakistan

    and the ISI of Pakistan got wind of Geo plans and recommended to the President to take actionagainst Geo. The Emergency imposed by the previous government was to thwart the campaignof disinformation that was running concurrently by Time magazine and Newsweek Magazineand the Neocon News agencies in the West.

    Why does Geo generally show the Indian version of events and why does its news sound like atranslation of CNN news? Geos dangerous general policies are the main reason that the Pakistanwas not allowing Geo to resume its transmission. Amazingly Geo is now starting a new EnglishNews channel to continue its activities against the the country. Where is the funding for all thiscoming from?

    Whether Geo is an unwilling victim of its sponsors and her affiliates in the USA or India, or isGeo running a planned campaign and got caught with its pants down.

    All Geo viewers want to find out the truth!

    THE ZIA MODEL WITH A TWIST: THE GREAT GAME CONTINUES: When theElephants dance, the grass gets crushed. The continued CIA involvement in Pakistan. AnotherPakistani leaders falls to an international game between the USA, and China and Russia, andPakistanis again pay the price

    Professor Michel Chossudovsky sheds some light on the plan:

    Quote:

  • 8/8/2019 Exposing GEO TV

    6/23

    It has been known for months that the Bush-Cheney administration and its allies have beenmaneuvering to strengthen their political control of Pakistan, paving the way for the expansionand deepening ofthe war on terrorism across the region.

    Various American destabilization plans, known for months by officials and analysts, proposed

    the toppling of Pakistans militaryThe assassination of Bhutto appears to have been anticipated. There were even reports ofchatter among US officials about the possible assassinations of either Pervez Musharraf or

    Benazir Bhutto, well before the actual attempts took place. (Larry Chin, Global Research, 29December 2007)

    Regime change with a view to ensuring continuity under military rule is no longer the mainthrust of US foreign policy. The regime of Pervez Musharraf cannot prevail. Washingtons

    foreign policy course is to actively promote the political fragmentation and balkanization ofPakistan as a nation.

    A new political leadership is anticipated but in all likelihood it will take on a very differentshape, in relation to previous US sponsored regimes. One can expect that Washington will pushfor a compliant political leadership, with no commitment to the national interest, a leadershipwhich will serve US imperial interests, while concurrently contributing under the disguise ofdecentralization, to the weakening of the central government and the fracture of Pakistans

    fragile federal structure.

    The political impasse is deliberate. It is part of an evolving US foreign policy agenda, whichfavors disruption and disarray in the structures of the Pakistani State. Indirect rule by thePakistani military and intelligence apparatus is to be replaced by more direct forms of USinterference, including an expanded US military presence inside Pakistan.

    This expanded military presence is also dictated by the Middle East-Central Asia geopoliticalsituation and Washingtons ongoing plans to extend the Middle East war to a much broader area.

    U.S. Special Forces are expected to vastly expand their presence in Pakistan, as part of an effort

    to train and support indigenous counter-insurgency forces and clandestine counterterrorismunits (William Arkin, Washington Post, December 2007).

    The official justification and pretext for an increased military presence in Pakistan is to extendthe war on terrorism. Concurrently, to justify its counterrorism program, Washington is also

    beefing up its covert support to the terrorists.

    Already in 2005, a report by the US National Intelligence Council and the CIA forecast aYugoslav-like fate for Pakistan in a decade with the country riven by civil war, bloodshed andinter-provincial rivalries, as seen recently in Balochistan. (Energy Compass, 2 March 2005).

    .Continuity, characterized by the dominant role of the Pakistani military and intelligence has

    been scrapped in favor of political breakup and balkanization..This US agenda for Pakistan is similar to that applied throughout the broader Middle EastCentral Asian region. US strategy, supported by covert intelligence operations, consists in

    triggering ethnic and religious strife, abetting and financing secessionist movements while alsoweakening the institutions of the central government. The broader objective is to fracture theNation State and redraw the borders of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan ProfessorMichel Chossudovsky

    STRANGE HEPPENINGS AT GEO THAT CANNOT BE EXPLAINED: Here are somefacts about Geo and some example of how Geo demorolizes the population and the general bodyof the Pakistani dispora.

    -GEO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CRASH OF THE STOCK MARKET: Geo repeatedlytelecasted false news about the Pakistani economy, the political situation and hence the stockmarket crashed in PakistanIn a pre-orchestrated campaign.

    -Geo focuses on the negative news and instead of focusing on solutions it shows bodies of deadpeople in contradiction of PEMRA and all decency requirements.

    -Geo focuses on petrol prices but does not inform the viewers that most private cars in Pakistannow run on CNG (liqufied petroluem gas) which costs $5 for a tank full. Most people drivingcars are not affected by the rise in petrol (gasoline) prices.

    -In a planned manner Geo supresses and ignores good news like 5.1 billion dollar of oil refineryin Pakistan

    -Geo usually ignoress good news like $28 Billion Emar international island development

    -Geo is averse to good news about Pakistanthere is no discussion of the Bullet Trains inPakistan.

    -Geo does not focus foreign interference in Pakistani affairs.

    -Geo did not discuss the 89 separatist movements in India in 2007 from Seven Northeasternsister states, to the Naxalite insurrection, to Bihar to Kashmir, to Assam etc

    -Geo Dramas: 50 percent of the dramas are Indian dramas on Geo and 25 percent are with mixcast (Indian and Pakistani) and Indian film

    -Geo focuses on showing beheading of people and other depressing news.Why did Geo not focus on showing 250 million people sleeping on sidewalks in India?

    -Geo did not cover for 36 hours the killing of 3000 Muslims in Gujrat?Urdu is not used by many hosts. Morning host shows are in English and Urdlish ( a horrible

    combination). The Younger generation is being spoiled by using them as instruments ofhedonism.

    -Some of the shows are way beyond the pale on being modern. Nudity is not modernity. Scienceand Technology is modernity.

  • 8/8/2019 Exposing GEO TV

    -Geo plays into the hands of the opposition parties. It does not discuss opportunities fordevelopment.

    -When Mr. Shaharayar interviewed the President of Azad Kashmir he interrupted him and didnot allow him to speak about the problems with the article of accession of Kashmir to India

    (which is now lost) if it ever existed.

    -Geo continues to use Indian jargon like partition. Partition signifies a temporary dissection ofthe whole. India was never whole. Even during British times there were more than 500 states inthe Subcontinent. Some of them banded together to make Pakistan and others banded together tomake India.

    -Discussion of Kashmir, Manvanagar, Junagarh are non-existant on Geo. Most Geo maps showKashmir as part of Pakistan. Zad Kashmir is never shown. Some Geo maps sill show the NothernAreas as part of India or partof Kashmir.

    -Kamran Khan was getting RS 25 lakh per month. Income vs. salary? Dr. Shahid Mahmud usedto get Rs 22 laks per month. He was a member of NSF student Hamid Mir the Editor of Ausafget Rs. 22 Lakh per month.Nadia Khan gets Rs 6 lacs per month. Income vs. salary?When Geo was not able to broadcast the8-hour cricket match, Geo said they lost 1 billion Rupees, After the ban Goo kept onbroadcasting for 36 hours without any income?Let us investigate the players involved with Geofrom information that is publicly available. We see these links which will be analyzed.

    1) The contravercial David Hazinski an ex US Navy Petty Officer with contacts with the

    State Department and the American Jewish Committee (AJC)

    2) Who is Todd Fratz and why does Geo associate with such characters?

    3) Casper Weinberger, Ronald Reagans indicted and pardoned Secretary of Defense who

    predicted the Next War with a rogue state like Iran. Why does Geo align itself with known warmongeres.

    4) Geo has strategic links with SkyTV of the UK, CNN, IBN-CNN in India and the Voice ofAmerica (VOA). See article on VOA Geo alliance in Pakistan.http://www.usembassy.gov/pakistan/h05111301.html

    ORIGINS OF GEO:

    Geo was started with the help of an ex US Naval Petty Officer by the name of Hazinski who haslinks with Mr. Casper Weinberger and many Indian channels.

    According to (Intelligent Media Consultants) Most recently, he re-designed the centralInternational Broadcast Center for the Voice of America in Washington and is consulting on newnetwork launches for the VOA. Mr. Hazinski is the principal of the company called

    Atlanta, GA 30305-2918, USA, email:[email protected], url:http://www.intelligentmc.com).theother principal of Intelligent MC is Mr. Todd Frantz. Toddcomes to IMC from 10 years at CNN in Atlanta. He has links to Cox Center for International

    Mass Communication Training and Research at The University of Georgia

    David Hazinski, associate professor at the University of Georgias Grady College of Journalismand Mass Communication, is the principle architect of GEO-TV and managed the stationslaunch. Hazinski was contacted by the Jang Group, Pakistans largest newspaper publisher andGEO-TVs owner, after he shepherded the successful launch of a similar station in India inJanuary 2001. Aaj Tak, the first all-news, Hindi-language channel in India, now has a 60% shareof the news audience in India.

    As one of the owners of Intelligent Media Consultants, an Atlanta-based company that helps itsclients design efficient and profitable network operations through the creative application ofbroadcast technology, Hazinski has worked all over the world launching news operations inmarkets starved for unbiased reporting. This is really the cutting edge of technology and

    journalism, says Hazinski, a former NBC news correspondent who says he and his partnershave helped launch at least a dozen news operations in the last 10 years. These are new markets.They havent been exposed to lots of TV.

    Because most of Intelligent Medias clients are unfamiliar with broadcast news techniques,Hazinski says he is able to tailor unique approaches that maximize their limited budgets. Thesepeople are willing to try new things because they dont want to pay the outrageous costs

    associated with news production in the United States, he says. Right now, based on what welearned in Pakistan, were convinced we can launch a network today for half of what it wouldhave cost three years ago. And no one would see any quality difference on the air - even if weaired it in the U.S.

    At GEO-TVs main broadcast center in Karachi, Hazinski built a newsroom around 24 Mac G4srunning Final Cut Pro. News footage is captured with 40 Sony PD150s and 15 PD100s. NewTekVideo Toaster 2 systems are used at bureaus in Islamabad and Lahore to switch between themain broadcast center.

    In addition to designing a systems approach for GEO-TV, Hazinski helped teach the stationsstaff how to use the equipment and how to produce television news. Greg Pope, a freelanceeditor and producer formerly with CNN, spent one month in Karachi this summer training GEO-TVs news staff, whichprimarily consists of newspaper journalists. We basically had to convertpeople from print journalists to TV journalists, says Pope, adding that he had never taught

    production techniques in a classroom setting to non-English speaking students. These printpeople were basically issued cameras and editing equipment and within months weretransformed from pen and paper to this new electronic media. Some of them didnt even know

    how to use a keyboard when we started.

    Considering the steep learning curve for the Pakistani journalists, Pope says he was amazed attheir perseverance and enthusiasm. These people are tired of having Western news andgovernment news shoved down their throats, says Pope, who estimates that he taught 100

    people to shoot and edit video. They want their own voice. They want to represent themselvesin their own way.

    But there is still a chance that the government will shut down GEO-TV. Pope says that while hewas training the news staff, it was widely believed that there were spies for PTV within their

    ranks. However, in recent years the Jang Group has won many battles for freedom of the press,so there is hope that GEO-TV will succeed.

    If they have minimal government interference, [GEO-TV] will change the face of Pakistan,says Pope.

    WHO IS CASPER WEINBERGER? And why did Geo associate with a known war

    monger?

    Caspar Willard Cap Weinberger (August 18, 1917 - March 28, 2006), was an American

    politician and Secretary of Defense under President Ronald Reagan from January 21, 1981, untilNovember 23, 1987, making him the third longest-serving defense secretary to date, after RobertMcNamara and Donald Rumsfeld. He is also known for his roles in the Strategic DefenseInitiative program and the Iran-Contra Affair.

    Following his resignation as Secretary of Defense, Weinberger was placed under indictment byIndependent Counsel Lawrence E. Walsh. The formal indictment charged Weinbergerwithseveral felony counts of lying to the Iran-Contra independent counsel during itsinvestigation. Weinberger received a Presidential pardon from President George H.W. Bush onDecember 24, 1992, after Bush had failed to win a second term.

    In 1996, Weinberger co-authored a book entitled The Next War, which raised questions aboutthe adequacy of US military capabilities following the end of the Cold War. After he publishedhis book, his colleagues from the Reagan administration broke contact and refused to speak withhim.

    Honorary Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE) in 1988, awarded in

    recognition for an outstanding and invaluable contribution to military cooperation between theUK and the US, particularly during the Falklands War of 1982. Wikipedia

    WEINBERGER DISCUSSES IRAN AND THE NEXT WAR: From Publishers WeeklyWeinberger, secretary of defense for most of the Reagan years, collaborates with Schweizer,president of the James Madison Institute, to present five possible near-future scenarios in whichthe U.S. goes to war. Scenario one is based on a North Korean invasion of South Korea that endsin stalemate after a limited nuclear exchange. Number two casts Iran as a rogue state usingballistic missiles to alter the Middle Easts balance of power. The third scenario postulates aradical Mexican government scapegoating the U.S. as the source of its countrys woes. A fourth

    describes the conquest of Europe by a resurgent Russia?again with the aid of nuclear weapons. Inscenario five, the U.S. and Japan reignite the Pacific War of 1941-1945, this time usingcyberstrikes against information systems, chemical warfare and a nuclear exchange. The

    authors tell their stories through the eyes of fictional participants. This format, familiar to readersof techno-thrillers, is an effective framework for dramatizing a set of pessimistic conclusions.Because of Americas reduction of its conventional armed forces and its failure to build a missiledefense system, none of the scenarios have outcomes more positive than stalemate achieved athigh cost. The authors lament for such a missile system and for the armed forces of the past

    wont convince those who believe that the dominant modes of future conflict will be terrorismand guerrilla war, however. Weinberger and Schweizer nevertheless make a case deservingserious consideration by citizens and policy-makers alike. PUblishers Weekly posted onAmazon

    Why is Geo not reporting Gen. Kayanis statement that he suspects a foreign hand in the

    assassination to destabilize and denuclearize Pakistan? The silence is deafening!

    Saboteurs trained in Afghanistan have been inserted into Pakistan to aggravate extremistpassions here, especially after the Red Mosque operation.

    Chinese citizens continue to be targeted by individuals pretending to be Islamists, when noknown Islamic group has claimed responsibility. . A succession of religious rebels withsuspicious foreign links have suddenly emerged in Pakistan over the past months claiming to bePakistani Taliban. Some of the names include Abdul Rashid Ghazi, Baitullah Mehsud, andnow the Maulana of Swat. Some of them have used, and are using, encrypted communicationequipment far superior to what the Pakistani military owns.

    Money and weapons have been fed into the religious movements and al-Qaeda remnants in the

    tribal areas.

    Exploiting the situation, assets within the Pakistani media started promoting the idea that thePakistani military was killing its own people. The rest of the unsuspecting media quickly pickedup this message. Some botched US and Pakistani military operations against al-Qaeda thatcaused civilian deaths accidentally fed this media campaign.This was the perfect timing for thelaunch of Military, Inc: Inside Pakistans Military Economy, a book authored by Ayesha Siddiqa

    Agha, a columnist for a Pakistani English-language paper and a correspondent for JanesDefence Weekly, a private intelligence service founded by experts close to British intelligence.

    Unfettered citizen journalism too risky By DAVID HAZINSKI, Published on: 12/13/07

    Youre beginning to get a lot more news from you.

    It ranges from the CNN YouTube debates to political blogs to cellphone video of that sniper whoopened fire at an Omaha Mall. These are all examples of so called citizen journalism, the hotnew extension of the news business where the audience becomes the reporter.David Hazinski, a former NBC correspondent, is an associate professor of telecommunicationsand head of broadcast news at the University of Georgias Grady College of Journalism.

    Supporters of citizen journalism argue it provides independent, accurate, reliable informationthat the traditional media dont provide. While it has its place, the reality is it really isnt

    journalism at all, and it opens up information flow to the strong probability of fraud and abuse.The news industry should find some way to monitor and regulate this new trend.

    The premise of citizen journalism is that regular people can now collect information and pictureswith video cameras and cellphones, and distribute words and images over the Internet.Advocates argue that the acts of collecting and distributing makes these people journalists.

    This is like saying someone who carries a scalpel is a citizen surgeon or someone who canread a law book is a citizen lawyer. Tools are merely that. Education, skill and standards are

    really what make people into trusted professionals. Information without journalistic standards iscalled gossip.

    But unlike those other professions, journalism - at least in the United States - has never adopteduniform self-regulating standards. There are commonly accepted ethical principles - two sourceconfirmation of controversial information or the balanced reporting of both sides of a story, forexample, but adhering to the principles is voluntary. There is no licensing, testing, mandatoryeducation or boards of review. Most other professions do a poor job of self-regulation, but at

    least they have mechanisms to regulate themselves. Journalists do not.

    So without any real standards, anyone has a right to declare himself or herself a journalist. Majormedia outlets also encourage it. Citizen journalism allows them to involve audiences, and it is afree source of information and video. But it is also ripe for abuse.

    CNNs last YouTube Republican debate included a question from a retired general who is on

    Hillary Clintons lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendersteering committee. False Internet rumors

    about Sen. Barack Obama attending a radicalMuslim school became so widespread that CNNand other news agencies did stories debunking the rumors. There are literally hundreds ofInternet hoaxes and false reports passed off as true stories, tracked by sites such as snopes.com.

    Having just anyone produce widely distributed stories without control can have the reverse effectfrom what advocates intend. Its just a matter of time before something like a faked Rodney King

    beating video appears on the air somewhere.

    Journalism organizations should head that off. Citizen reports can be a valuable addition to newsand information flow with some protections:

    Major news organizations must create standards to substantiate citizen-contributed informationand video, and ensure its accuracy and authenticity.

    They should clarify and reinforce their own standards and work through trade organizations toenforce national standards so they have real meaning.

    Journalism schools such as mine at the University of Georgia should create mini-courses tocertify citizen journalists in proper ethics and procedures, much as volunteer teachers,paramedics and sheriffs auxiliaries are trained and certified.

    Journalists generally dont like any kind of standards or regulation. Many argue that standards

    could infringe on freedom of the press and journalism shouldnt be regulated.

    But we have already seen the line between news and entertainment blur enough to destroysignificant credibility. Continuing to do nothing as information flow changes will further erodeit. Journalism organizations who choose to do nothing may soon find the line betweenprofessional and citizen journalism gone as well as the trust of their audiences.Associate Professor/Head, Broadcast News .
