Liz Wahl is a Wet Dream for Corporate American Mainstream NewsTim King Salem-News.com
Russian Television allows national dissent on the air, American TV doesn't... what gives?
It takes all of 90 seconds watching Russia Television (RT) to know that this Russian government funded news agency is pro-Putin. There is no question, no revelation to be had, yet their former anchor, Liz Wahl, made a spectacle out of herself this week by resigning on the air, stating that this news outlet "whitewashes" the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Child Soldiers, Hidden Problem in USTim King Press TV
Americans like to think that this only happens in other parts of the world when it is taking place right under their nose
According to the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHCR), allowing children to serve in the military, in a combat environment is a war crime. This is simple for most people to understand.

Americans are often defined as "ugly" to people the world over, and there is perhaps no bigger example of the Ugly American than this extremely obnoxious TV judge who fuels her performance with arrogance, hate and disdain.

Tim King's articles explore political and social injustice. He believes that Genocide and Human Rights violations are unacceptable in this world, across the board with no exceptions; and that resolving and isolating this should be a primary goal of all of the world's governments, and that all other political goals, particularly those related to the American military industrial complex, need to undergo a massive reorganization. The Human Rights Tim and other writers call for are called for under international law, by the 1948 UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
At the center of the problems that lead to human suffering, are religious governments, followed by religious interference in western politics, where there is no measurable success- only more war.
As a news editor, Tim believes there are other massive issues that mainstream media should better address.
These include human trafficking, which is a massively ignored issue, the erosion of the rights of American citizens and associated, increasing police brutality, U.S. connections to Mexican drug cartels, the nearly unregulated big pharma industry and FDA.
Also of paramount importance, are clean air and water issues and the environmental impacts of contaminated U.S. military bases. He believes all of these subjects need to become a larger focus of all media.
Tim reports regularly on developments relating to the 2009 Sri Lanka Genocide of Tamil people that left well over 100k people missing or dead. He also writes about the constant Human Rights violations and Genocide in Balochistan, and other regions.
Tim King launched Salem-News.com during the summer of 2004 when he was a photojournalist/reporter for KATU Channel-2 News, the ABC affiliate in Portland, Oregon. Assigned to cover Salem for the station, Tim began Salem-News as an overflow for his daily work for the television station.
About a year and a half later, Tim left KATU to become fully devoted to the growth, development and daily news needs of Salem-News.com along with Bonnie King, who had left her position at the Statesman Journal in Salem, Oregon where she served as the Newspapers in Education Director.
After two years, Salem-News.com was selected by Google to be one of its contributing news organizations and traffic on the site grew ten times overnight; with the daily number of visitors jumping from 600 to 6,000.
Over the winter of 2006/2007, Tim spent two months in Afghanistan covering the war there through the eyes of 900 Oregon soldiers.
Tim reported for Salem-News.com and Oregon's KPTV FOX-12 from a number of regions and situations in war-torn Afghanistan. His stories showed the poverty and despair ever present in this nation that continues to remain at the center of a seemingly endless Middle east war. Tim covered various operations out of Kabul from November, through the following January, visiting the former training camp of Usama bin Laden in Jalabad, Mazur-e-Shariff, where the US war there began, and also Gardez, Ghazni and many other locations.
In addition to turning 30 news reports for Salem-News.com and Oregon's FOX-12 in Portland, his work was also shown in two documentaries produced by the Portland FOX station in the weeks following his return.
More recently, Tim spent five weeks covering the war in Iraq, embedded once again with an Oregon Guard unit. Tim produced reports with the Army's 101st Airborne and Marines in Iraq's Anbar province, during the summer of 2008, based primarily out of the Air base at Balad, better known to soldiers there as 'Mortaritaville' due to its frequent reception of rocket and missile attacks. Tim spent time in Baghdad, and also with Marines in Anbar. He also visited Fallujah, Ramadi, TQ (Al-Taqaddum AB) and other locations.
Tim's stories for Salem-News.com ranged from combat patrols with the Army and Marines, and memorable videos and articles; including a focus report on a Navy doctor based with the Marines, who helped several Iraqi children receive heart surgery in Israel, and a report of a harrowing night in Iraq, flying in an Army helicopter packed with Iraqi 'detainees' who were kicked and abused by the Americans in the Army aircraft. This is where Tim learned the unique phrase popular in Iraq at the time: Did you create a terrorist today?"
Since spending time in the Middle east, Tim has become increasingly interested in the struggle of the Palestinian people who live with the daily occupation and related oppression of Israel. The same is true with Sri Lanka, one of the primary focuses of Tim's daily reports. In fact Tim and Salem-News.com are the only force in the United States that constantly focuses on the Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians that culminated in 2009.
The Salem-News.com team generates new reports about Israel and Palestine, Iran, Libya, Syria and Sri Lanka constantly; but the group also explores and exposes other vital issues like human rights violations in African nations, like The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Somalia, just for starters. Tim's reports have also illustrated terrible violations of international law in places like Pakistan and India. Each of these significant world issues, always invariably, is interrelated with US affairs.
Another huge aspect of Tim's work at Salem-News.com has revolved around the contamination of the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Irvine, California, which officials planned to turn into a park and housing subdivision, in spite of the fact that the ground is seriously contaminated with several deadly chemicals. Working with several other Salem-News.com writers who also served as Marines at El Toro, Tim has generated a steady stream of news reports that have seriously impacted the proposed redevelopment of the base, which today is just a ruin.
Tim's years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions; he has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu
