Preview France 24

That's "France Vingt-Quatre", not "France Twenty-four," the new 24 hour news channel sponsored by the French government designed to counter the Anglo-American influence of CNN and BBC.  An interesting alternative worth checking out.  Check out the preview on the France 24 website:

The official site launch is 7 December, at 20:30 GMT +1. 

One Punk Under God



Last night, I watched the premiere episode of One Punk Under God, a documentary about Jay Bakker, the punky prodigal son of televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker.  The show is running on the Sundance Channel on cable and also available on the iTunes Store.  The premiere episode is currently FREE for download.

Jay Bakker and his Revolution Church turns old-time religion upside-down and makes it politically and culturally relevant to a modern, hip, youthful audience.  Even if his vision of the Christian faith isn't your cup of tea, the documentary should be interesting. 






Genocide in Darfur



Darfur’s genocide has too often been attributed to a faceless Sudanese Government or the Janjaweed. But the truth is that a few individuals designed, implemented and continue to perpetuate this horror…

It is time to name their names. Human rights experts agree that the architects of this genocide are Sudanese President Bashir, Vice President Taha and Security Chief Salah Gosh. They have orchestrated mass rape, murder, starvation, and genocide, and now they are threatening to spread that terror beyond Darfur, into Chad and other nearby countries.

With your support, will run the first ads publicly shaming these war criminals. Click below to see the ad:

Please help us put a name and face on the evil behind this genocide. Shaming these men will pressure the international community to stop offering these criminals handshakes and deals while the people of Darfur continue to die under their grip. What’s needed now are international indictments and arrests.  Only this kind of justice can bring real and lasting peace to Darfur.
