Charlie and the CBS Factory (and other news)

By brasch - Posted on 25 March 2011

There has been a lot in the news this past week.

Most important, if measured by getting most of the ink and air time, is the continuing soap opera, “Charlie and the CBS Factory.”

The latest in a seemingly never-ending story is that after Charlie Sheen melted down, was fired, and spread himself to every known television talk show, declaring himself to be a winner and announcing a $100 million forthcoming law suit against CBS for breech of contract, the president of CBS announced he wanted Sheen back in “Two and a Half Men.”

Details are to be worked out. CBS said it would work with creator/executive producer Chuck Lorre and producing studio Warner Brothers, The relationship among Sheen, Warner Bros., Lorre, and most of the cast and crew may be a bit more difficult since Sheen’s warm-and-friendly on-air persona didn’t match his vitriolic attacks upon his co-stars and anti-Semitic remarks about Lorre.

CBS probably wouldn’t be as eager to bring Sheen back if the show wasn’t the best-rated comedy on the schedule. The SitCom brings in about $2.89 million in advertising revenue per show, about $63 million per season. A ninth and possibly final season also makes it even more lucrative for all the parties when the show goes into full syndication.

The boozing, possibly drug-induced self-destructive Sheen earns about $1.8 million an episode. In contrast, Mark Harmon, star of “NCIS,” the top-rated scripted show on TV, and also broadcast by CBS, is paid about $400,000 per episode, the same as any of the “Desperate Housewives,” according to TV Guide. In contrast to Sheen, Harmon is happily married, and his professional and personal lives have been devoid of scandal.

Also devoid of scandal, except for an adulterous affair and subsequent marriage to Richard Burton, was Elizabeth Taylor, one of the greatest film actresses, who died at 79 from congestive heart failure. Unlike Sheen and dozens of sub-par actresses, Taylor set the standard for both acting and a social conscience, being one of the first major celebrities to support not only AIDS education but the victims of the disease at a time when it could have been career-damaging to do so. She won numerous awards, including two Oscars for her acting. But, her most important honor may have been a special Oscar for her humanitarian work, proving her beauty was far more than skin deep.

But, there were still other stories this past week.

● Barry Bonds is in trial, charged with lying about taking steroids. He acknowledges taking steroids but was never told what they were by his trainers. Don’t Congress and the federal judiciary system have far more important things to worry about than baseball players who do or don’t take steroids? How much money has already been spent by Congressional investigations and the subsequent trial that could very well, according to several impartial legal experts, result in a minimal sentence or no sentence at all?

● Because of the disaster in Japan, a few hundred million Americans are now concerned about problems of nuclear energy. When America’s nukes were being planted throughout the country in the ’70s and ’80s, these were the same Americans who bought into all the propaganda about how “clean” and how “safe” nuclear power is. More important, these were some of the same people who not only disregarded but mocked those who, with facts, disputed the claims of the power companies.

● Two passenger jetliners landed at Reagan National Airport without air traffic controller assistance. The lone controller may have been asleep. That, alone, is bad enough, but there are greater issues not being discussed in the media. In one of the busiest airports, one located in the nation’s capital, and with the government well aware that air traffic control is one of the most stressful jobs, why was there only one controller on duty?

● The U.S. launched about $175 million worth of Tomahawk missiles into Lybia this past week. Perhaps another $100–$300 million was spent on tactical operations. President Obama told us the reason for the attack, supported by the UN, was because dictator Muammar Khadafi was attacking civilians in his country. If that’s the reason for the attack, why has the U.S. military been silent on the ethnic slaughter in Darfur/the Sudan? Why have there been no attacks on Iran, North Korea, or other dictatorships that suppress the rights of people? Is it because Libya has more strategic importance, and oil, for the U.S. than Darfur? A more important question is why are we attacking a country in a civil war? Khadafi’s attacks upon rebels may be harsh, but he’s protecting his country. Apparently we learned nothing from the war in Viet Nam. What if England invaded the U.S. on behalf of the Confederates or France provided military assistance to President Lincoln during our own Civil War?

● Finally, labor has come under intense attacks the past couple of months. Wisconsin has eliminated collective bargaining, against the largest protests since the Viet Nam war. Other Republican-controlled states are in full battle gear. And, in Maine, Republican Gov. Paul LePage has proven that he cares nothing about the working class when he ordered murals of workers taken down from the halls of the Department of Labor. He claimed, without providing any proof, that some businessmen said the panels, which have no political theme, just depictions of workers, was anti-business. But, no matter what radical conservatives believe, about two-thirds of Americans still believe in collective bargaining, even if they aren’t in unions, according to several recent national polls.

If protecting civilians is an issue, perhaps our government needs to revisit the deaths of American citizens and thousands of Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli government. Rachel Corrie comes to mind and also the young man on the Turkish boat bringing aid to Gaza. If it were Nazis in the 1930s doing that stuff, would be have complained? Possibly not. But that does not make it right.

Hey kid!!! What about "Walter Brasch and the Zio-Media Factory???" . . . ;-)

Can you say, "Character Assassination", kidz? . . . ;-)

Walter Brasch writes of Charlie Sheen:
"The relationship among Sheen, Warner Bros., Lorre, and most of the cast and crew may be a bit more difficult since Sheen’s warm-and-friendly on-air persona didn’t match his vitriolic attacks upon his co-stars and anti-Semitic remarks about Lorre."

Hmmm, so "journalist" Walter Brasch subscribes to the Talmudic theory that for a goyim to address a Jewish person by their Jewish name is "anti-Semitism"??? . . . ;-)

Even Abe Foxman of the ADL merely ascribed this as "borderline anti-Semitism" in his professional defamation of Charlie Sheen. . . ;-)

Notice that "journalist" Walter Brasch does not mention ANYTHING about Charlie Sheen's involvement in the 9-11 TRUTH MOVEMENT . . .

(link to video - approx. 7 minutes)
"Charlie Sheen's Sept 2009 Video Message to President Obama"

(link to 24 February 2011 video interview - approx. 15 minutes)
"Charlie Sheen Unleashed: I'm Not Taking It Anymore!! 1/3"

. . . the REAL reason the Zionist Media Assassins went after Charlie Sheen with such a fury and single mindedness of purpose.

For as WE THE PEOPLE and the U.S. Military all know . . . when it comes to 9-11 TRUTH . . .

Coming soon . .. Part 4 of 4 . . .

Curious that when one looks up "Walter Brasch" here, we learn:

"Walter M. Brasch, an American Jewish social issues journalist, professor of journalism"

But when we look here . . . something gets "omitted" . . .

"Walter M. Brasch Ph.D., is an American social issues journalist and university professor of journalism."

Can you spot the thing that is "omitted", kidz??? . . .

You know, "omitted" like the role of 9-11 TRUTH in the Charlie Sheen vs. World Zionism saga . . .

You know, "omitted" like how much money "Chaim Levine" (aka Chuck Lorre) makes off of the series "Two and A Half Men" . .

You know, "omitted" like any description of what kind of "boozing, possibly drug-induced self-destructive" lifestyles Mr. Levine and the rest of the Hollywood elite Zionist bosses at CBS/Warner Brothers pursue with all that money they have made off of Charlie Sheen's talent all these years . . . ;-)

No "conflict of interest" for Mr. Walter Brasch here . . .

. . . just the good ol' impartial "journalism" we've come to expect from the Zionist Media in this country . . . ;-)

About a lucky man who made the grade

Hey kidz!!! As promised above, here is Dr. Alan Sabrosky's Part 4 of his series on 9-11 Truth from Veterans Today!!! . . .

(clipped headline and link from Veterans Today)

Gee, do you think "journalist" Walter Brasch will cover this story, kidz??? . . . ;-)

"The thing that is necessary is to tell people is that three buildings went down. The third was not hit by a plane. It was wired for controlled demolition, therefore all of them were wired for controlled demolition. At that point the reaction is rage. First, disbelief and then RAGE."
- Dr. Alan Sabrosky,

"9/11 WTC 7 Demolition - Penthouse Collapse Close Up (WCBS)"

. . . or will "journalist" Walter Brasch keep telling WE THE PEOPLE that 9-11 Truth Activist Charlie Sheen is just a mean ol' anti-Semite . . . and that this is NOT an "orange" . . . ;-)

(link to video - approx. 2 minutes)
"WTC7 -- This is an Orange"

. . .and even if it were an "orange", Israel and its 5th Column Zionists had nothing to do with it . . .

. . . and anyone who says otherwise is just a "bed-wetting-commie-pinko-holocaust-denying-anti-Semite" . . . ;-)

Gee, I wonder if "journalist" Walter Brasch has seen film maker Anthony Lawson's latest project?

(link to video - approx. 30 minutes)
"Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid?"

If "journalist" Walter Brasch loathes Charlie Sheen's interest in the BIG LIE of 9-11 to the point where he won't even acknowledge it, you have to know that his head would probably explode if he watched this latest documentary from Anthony Lawson. . . ;-)

"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless frontiers".
- Article 19, The U.N. Declaration Of Human Rights

World Zionists usually don't think the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights Article 19 applies to all those damn "anti-Semites" who dare to be critical of Israeli False Flag Terrorism and War Crimes . . .

. . . or those who seek out the REAL history of World Zionism . . . especially all the BIG LIES . . . that usually result in more BIG WARS . . . for more BIG PROFITS . . . ;-)

. .. all sold to us by those "journalists" in the Zionist Main Stream Media . . .

"It's the dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand.
His son is working for the Daily Mail,
It's a steady job
But he wants to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer."
