In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world’s best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can — the targets of anti-corporate campaigns by activists and protesters?

No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. Analyzing how brands like Nike,The Gap, and Tommy Hilfiger became revered symbols worldwide, Klein argues that globalization is a process whereby corporations discovered that profits lay not in making products (outsourced to low-wage workers in developing countries), but in creating branded identities people adopt in their lifestyles.

Using hundreds of media examples, No Logo shows how the commercial takeover of public space, destruction of consumer choice, and replacement of real jobs with temporary work – the dynamics of corporate globalization – impact everyone, everywhere. It also draws attention to the democratic resistance arising globally to challenge the hegemony of brands.  From www.mediaed.org

What really happened on the day Vince Foster was found dead? Howard Phillips, host of Conservative Roundtable, interviews Attorney John Clark and Patrick Knowlton – a Whitewater Grand Jury witness – on the questionable proceedings related to the death of Vincent Foster. Mr Knowlton was an unknowing witness to events in Fort Marcy Park in Virginia on the day Vince Foster’s body was found dead; the same day his office in the Clinton White House was discovered ransacked–and the same day the FBI was supposed to conduct a search of his office for Whitewater evidence. Watch as Mr. Knowlton describes the strange campaign of intimidation against him before he was scheduled to testify, and the threatening man in Ft. Marcy park. Essentially he was being “urged” to testify that the 83 or 84 Honda Accord and other details he saw were not what he really saw.

Foster had been the deputy White House counsel & also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton during Whitewater.
