Mike, I am in complete agreement with your analysis of the LA times and the propaganda they preach. The NY Times is also guilty of the same trip and agenda to demonize the development on our nations natural resources.

What is a forum?

Funk & Wagnalls Standard Dictionary has a thoughtful answer. “A public market place of an ancient Roman city, where popular assembles met, and most legal and political business was transacted.”

My plan and reason for creating this “FORUM” almost fifteen years ago mirror that definition, but the focus is gold and gold mining. As it grew I worked with its organization and decided that the number of topics must be controlled. No more than twenty seemed best. Miscellaneous became the dumping ground for unique or special isolated topics. The L.A.Times Article went to sleep on June 11, 2005; however its relevance and historical importance seemed timeless to me. I just could not delete or move it.

Does anyone read it anymore because it is so outdated? Does it deserve its place among the active topics (there are 22 topics now)? As editor, what should I do with this old reality?

Well, I reread the entries this morning and found the writing splendid and the discussion regarding journalism and reporters is still relevant. Ours is an indisputable case study of media inaccurate reporting, but now a name has been given to the work of the L.A. Times Article: fake news. What a tragedy and shame the practice has become so prevalent!

The L.A. Times Article had no input for 12 years and 7 months. Today this will change by the push of a “send button”. I hope you find the time and interest to scroll down to the first entry by gfxgold and begin a story that (with different people and circumstances) continues today (or read it from recent to first). Surely you may have comments to add.

When I was eight years old I started buying the L.A. Times for its sports section, mainly following the L.A. Angels of the Pacific Coast League and the Brooklyn Dodgers. Even today when I'm down south I buy it as the Dodgers are still my team. There's not too much slant on their sport's pages.

The L.A. Times has an enormous amount of the paper's weight devoted to advertising. Actually, it's quite repulsive. The people that used to run the paper when I was young are long gone. Their replacements appear to be less interested in reporting the real news compared to their predecessors.

Generally speaking, papers in the U.S. stink for reporting the real news. If a person is seriously interested in reducing most of the slant I personally enjoy the Financial Times out of London. Subscriptipons to the paper can be acquired at 1-800-628-8088. They are not a perfect news source as the paper is anti-gold but they report news that is not available in U.S. along with excellent editorials.

The L.A. Times can't hold a candle to the truth that is presented on Jim Sinclair's website at Jim informed its readers many months ago about the approaching threat that was presented by Avian Flu.

The World Health Organization has been warning governments around the world lately about the potential of the virus. If you are interested in being informed go to their website.

Rumors have been circulating that in Qinghai, China more than 120 people, including tourists, have died of Avian flu plus hundreds have been quarantined.

The question is: Why is the L.A. Times picking on the company and restricting one of its reporters from presenting to its readers an historical perspective of one of California's famous high grade gold mines? Plain and simple, the paper is anti-gold.

What is the L.A. Times doing to probe government officials on their preparedness to protect people concerning the approaching Avian flu?

Are there any papers left in the U.S. that respect the intelligence of their readers? Maybe, the Christian Science Monitor.
