CNN Using BS Copyright Argument to Bump Video

According to Patterico and Jim Treacher, CNN is claiming a video posted by Founding Bloggers is copyright infringement©. It shows the clip of Susan Roesgen acting like a stupid beyotch at the Chicago Tea Party, and Founding Bloggers video of what happened next. Basically, she graduated from being a stupid bitch, to being a…ahem…cupid stunt. Patterico and Treacher are encouraging everyone to download a copy of this video, and upload it to their YouTube accounts to keep this thing going. Who am I to argue with huge bloggers like Patterico and Treacher? I must obey. My little contribution to the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

    I didn’t think Communist propagandists believed in personal property. So what is this copyright they speak of? Infringe!!!! Saw you in the sidebar at Easily Lost’s place. With a title this yours, I had to stop by. Nice work.

  2. Copyrights are a tool of oppression. The origin of copyright is that only those approved by the crown were allowed to own a printing press. This was a way to control the “media” so to speak. Copyright served the purpose of limiting the flow of information. Now, we do not need approval to own a printing press. Fire up the internet and within minutes you can have your own blog. Yet, here we still have copyright as a tool of limiting the flow of information.

    Where is the Liberty in limiting the flow of information? That is why RadioactiveLiberty.com DOES NOT have a copyright. Our terms allow for the redistribution, and/or transformation, for both personal and commercial use. Why would anyone want to LIMIT the size of the audience they can reach? Because they want to control not just the information, but more importantly, they want to control THE AUDIENCE.

    Flair, I appreciate the history review. However, creative writing is another matter. One’s intellectual property, created to earn a living, should be protected just as an engineer’s new widget is protected by a patent. Though neither really protects one from infringement, they do grant the right to sue for damages.

  4. Patents only serve the purpose of limiting technological growth. I am not in favor of them either. If you are not creative enough to figure out a valid business model, then that is your problem. If you suck at marketing, then it sucks to be you. Too bad that someone else is better at business than you are. I thought conservatives were supposed to be in favor of competition, not in favor of bullshit laws that prevent it.

  5. “Intellectual Property” What a load of shit. You don’t own ideas stupid.

  6. I’m just going to apoologize for referring to you as stupid. That was out of line. It’s just that this is probably the #1 issue that I believe in, so I get a little worked up.

  7. Meh, i don’t care either way. I just do what the big blogs tell me.

    I catch Commie News Network every once in a while, I remember when they was saying 400 bucks was chump change for fools when Bush handed it out, now Obamba, it’s like winning the lottery.

    Toward the last: JOEtta D. Soccermom gives lesson in impartial and unbiased news reporting to “Journalist”. Priceless.

  10. Sorry, I deleted the post you made to my site, JumpOut. I had a technical difficulty with the commenting. Thanks for the concern.

  11. CNN is unfair not only to people in the streets, but also inside its own walls. CNN recently fired with a humiliating severance package an employee who was on disability dying of brain cancer. CNN also fired with a humiliating severance package an employee who was on disability awaiting double bypass surgery. CNN also fired a small group of hispanic workers in a cruel act to avenge a sexual harassment complaint against a female executive. CNN also fired a sales executive who was on disability recovering from mistreatment from his supervisors.

    From: a former employee who worked 16 years in CNN and who resigned tired of CNN’s huge lack of respect for employees.

    “CNN: maltrato y muerte de trabajadores”

    From: noticiasdot.com

    El periodista salvadoreño Mario Vela fallece 12 días después de ser despedido por CNN AGACAMT denuncia la actitud malintencionada de CNN hacia empleados enfermos José Ramón Cotti, periodista puertorriqueño despedido por CNN, permanece ingresado en el hospital tras meses de dolor.

    Atlanta (23 Marzo 2009).- El periodista Salvadoreño Mario Vela falleció 12 días después de que CNN le despidiese. La empresa echó al trabajador conocedora de su estado de extrema gravedad. Vela llevaba varios meses desahuciado por sus doctores agonizando en un hospital en Washington. Mario Vela sufrió la presión impuesta por CNN en sus últimos días al recibir un documento en el que se cuestionaban sus derechos de denuncia ante las autoridades que debía firmar como condición para recibir su indemnización.

    Eva Ventín presidenta de AGACAMT, en nombre de la Asociación Gallega Contra el Acoso Moral en el Trabajo, denuncia “la actitud hipócrita y de chantaje de CNN ante la muerte de Mario Vela. Tras haberle puesto en la calle y someterlo a una terrible presión innecesaria, el Vicepresidente de CNN en Español,
    Cristopher Crommett, se atrevió a acudir al entierro de Vela e incluso llegó a cantar en el funeral del popular periodista. Familiares y amigos de Mario Vela se vieron obligados a organizar el concierto benéfico para recaudar fondos para continuar con su tratamiento médico. Es difícil de creer que una
    empresa multibillonaria como CNN, que a pesar de la crisis acaba de anunciar importantes beneficios económicos, llegue a maltratar así a sus profesionales y familias”.

    Mario Vela falleció a los 34 años, fue elegido por la alcaldía de Washington DC como periodista del año en el 2007, destacó por su apoyo a la comunidad hispana y hacia los más desfavorecidos por lo que recibió numerosos reconocimientos por parte de la comunidad latina en EEUU. Con más de 10 años de experiencia en medios Mario Vela fue director de noticias de Mega Communications y de Radio Capital 730 en DC. Vela trabajó para el Canal 30 de Univisión y para Radio Mundo en Maryland.

    Desde AGACAMT se señala que “la situación de acoso laboral de CNN tiene antecedentes serios denunciados en los medios ya en el 2003 cuando la prensa local de Atlanta relacionó a CNN con el suicidio del periodista Abel Dimant (ver editorial original del periódico Mundo Hispánico adjunta como archivo). Que sepamos, con este ya son dos los muertos que sufrieron el maltrato y acoso laboral de CNN en Español. A Jim Walton, presidente de CNN, se le han comunicado numerosas irregularidades desde hace casi un año sin obtener respuesta alguna”.

    AGACAMT apunta que “este no es el único caso de un periodista despedido por CNN en el momento en el que permanece ingresado de extrema gravedad en un hospital o inhabilitado. La situación es muy seria ya que en el momento en el que una empresa despide a un trabajador en USA este pierde el seguro de
    vida y el seguro de salud. Con los impresionantes costes de la sanidad en este país resulta imposible pagar los gastos médicos”.

    José Ramón Cotti permanece ingresado desde hace varios meses en un hospital en Atlanta en situación de extrema gravedad. El periodista puertorriqueño también fué despedido por CNN en el momento en el que se encontraba hospitalizado pendiente de una delicada operación de corazón. Se mudó de New York a Atlanta con su esposa, hospitalizada al mismo tiempo que este, para trabajar en CNN hace 9 años. Este prestigioso periodista, galardonado en New York con un premio CIMA, un premio anual de la Asociación de Emisoras de Radio y dos premios ACE, está sufriendo el maltrato de la empresa y es otra de las numerosas víctimas de la dramática crisis que sacude a CNN.

  12. I had Babel Fish translate the spanish portion of the above comment if anyone is interested.

    Salvadoran journalist Mario Candle passes away 12 days after being dismissed by Cnn AGACAMT denounces the hostile attitude of Cnn towards ill employees Jose Ramon Cotti, Puerto Rican journalist dismissed by Cnn, remains entered in the hospital after months of pain. Atlanta (23 March 2009). – Salvadoran journalist Mario Candle passed away 12 days after Cnn dismissed to him. The company threw to the expert worker of its state of extreme gravity. Candle had been several months evicted by its doctors agonizing in a hospital in Washington. Mario Candle underwent the pressure imposed by Cnn in its last days when receiving a document in which their rights of denunciation were questioned before the authorities that had to sign like condition to receive its indemnification. Eva Ventín AGACAMT president, in the name of the Galician Association Against the Harassment Moral in the Work, denounces “the hypocritical attitude and of Cnn blackmail before the death of Mario Candle. After to him to have put in the street and to put under it a terrible unnecessary pressure, the Vice-president of Cnn in Spanish, Cristopher Crommett, dared to go to the burial of Candle and it even got to sing in the funeral of the popular journalist. Relatives and friendly of Mario Candle were themselves forced to organize the beneficial concert to collect bottoms to continue with their medical treatment. It is difficult to think that one multibillonaria company like Cnn, that in spite of the crisis finishes announcing important economic benefits, gets to thus mistreat to its professionals and families”. Mario Candle passed away to the 34 years, was chosen by the mayorship of Washington DC like journalist of the year in the 2007, emphasized by its support to the Hispanic community and towards most underprivileged reason why it received numerous recognitions on the part of the Latin community in the USA.

That we know, with this already they are the two deads that suffered I mistreat and harassment labor of Cnn in Spanish. To Jim Walton, president of Cnn, have communicated it numerous irregularities for almost a year without obtaining answer some”. AGACAMT aims that “this it is not the unique case of a journalist dismissed by Cnn to the moment at which remains entered of extreme gravity in a hospital or disqualified. The situation is very serious since at the moment to which a company dismisses a worker to the USA this it loses the insurance of life and the health insurance. With the impressive costs of the health in this country it is impossible to pay the medical expenses”. Jose Ramon Cotti remains entered for several months in a hospital in Atlanta in situation of extreme gravity. The Puerto Rican journalist also was dismissed by Cnn to the moment at which she was hospitalized pending of a delicate operation of heart. He changed himself of New York to Atlanta with his wife, hospitalized at the same time as this, to work in Cnn 9 years ago. This prestigious journalist, awarded in New York with a prize TOP, an annual prize of the Association of Radio transmitters and two prizes ACE, is suffering I mistreat of the company and is another one of the numerous victims of the dramatic crisis that shakes to Cnn.

  13. CNN: MISTREATMENT AND DEATH OF EMPLOYEES

    Salvadoran journalist Mario Vela passes away 12 days after being dismissed by CNN. The organization AGACAMT denounces the hostile attitude of CNN towards ill employees. Jose Ramon Cotti, Puerto Rican journalist dismissed by CNN, remains in a hospital after months of pain.

    Atlanta (23 March 2009). – Salvadoran journalist Mario Vela passed away 12 days after CNN dismissed him. The company fired this worker despite the knowledge of the seriousness of his illness. Mr. Vela had been several months agonizing in Washington after his doctors declared there was no hope to save his life.

    Mario Vela and his family underwent the pressure imposed by CNN in his last days when receiving a document in which their rights of denunciation were questioned and conditioned to the signing of a humiliating severance package.

    CNN served notice to Mr. Vela via mail explaining that he no longer was to have his disability benefits and the medical insurance from the company.

    Eva Ventín, president of AGACAMT, the Galician Association Against Moral Harassment at the Workplace, denounces the hypocritical attitude of CNN, that, after putting Mr. Vela in the street, sent the Vice-president of CNN Spanish, Cristopher Crommett, to this employee’s funeral to sing a song and to deliver a pitiful donation.

    Relatives and friends of Mario Vela were themselves forced to organize a fundraising concert to collect money to pay for his medical treatment.

    It is difficult to think that a powerful and multi-millionaire company like CNN, that in spite of the world’s economy crisis have announced economic gains, gets to mistreat its professionals and families”.

    Mario Vela who passed away at age 34, was named by the mayor of Washington DC “the journalist of the year of 2007” recognition who was emphasized by his support to the Hispanic community and towards the under-privileged.

    With more than 10 years of experience Mario Vela was news director of Mega Communications and Radio Capital 730 in DC. Vela worked for Channel 30 of Univisión and Radio World in Maryland.

    AGACAMT wants to bring to the world’s attention other serious cases of labor harassment at CNN as in 2003 the local press of Atlanta related this network with the depression of a journalist who committed suicide. (see original editorial of the Mundo Hispanico about former news director Abel Dimant).

    The complaints of labor abuses and irregularities had been communicated to Mr. Jim Walton, the President of CNN, but there are no answers neither solutions that protect the victims.

    AGACAMT denounces that “this it is not the unique case of a journalist dismissed by CNN in a serious condition”. News anchor Jose Ramon Cotti remains in a hospital in Georgia after several months of pain.

    The Puerto Rican journalist also was dismissed by CNN while on disability awaiting a delicate heart operation.

    CNN brought Mr. Cotti and his wife to Atlanta from New York 9 years ago and the company has now totally forgotten this family, not even making a phone call to inquire about its employee’s condition after double bypass surgery and leg amputation and also after Mrs. Cotti’s hospitalization with health problems including stress related condition.

    We communicated Mr. Walton of the above again with no responses.
    This prestigious New York radio journalist, recipient of Several prizes including two awards from ACE. (Award of creative excellence) is just another one of the numerous victims of the dramatic crisis that shakes CNN.
