He went on to warn that everyone should be "concerned" about "the constant consolidation of media," saying that "no more than six" companies currently control 80% of the distribution of news. "These large corporations, they have things they need from the power structure in Washington...and of course the people in Washington have things they want the news to be reported," he said.

‘Come Back When You’re Dangerous’: How Police Are Failing The Mentally Ill
The Virginia medical examiner’s office has ruled that the death of a woman at the Fairfax County jail in February was an accident linked to the use of a stun gun to shock her while she was shackled. Natasha McKenna, 37, of Alexandria died after she was restrained with handcuffs and leg shackles and shocked four times, county records show. After the shocks were administered Feb. 3, 2015 she stopped breathing, was taken to a hospital and died several days later. Natasha McKenna (Courtesy of Natasha McKenna's family) In the Tuesday statement, police said they are awaiting reports on an examination of the medical equipment that was used to monitor McKenna’s vital signs before paramedics responded to the adult detention center. The autopsy report will be included in material that will be turned over to the county commonwealth’s attorney’s office for final determination of any criminal liability, police said. Last week, the sheriff’s office announced a temporary suspension of the use of stun guns in the jail and said it was reviewing policy on the devices. Use of a stun gun in McKenna’s case was questioned this month by four law enforcement experts interviewed by The Washington Post, noting that she was restrained and was mentally ill. McKenna’s treatment also troubled her family and advocates for the mentally ill. McKenna had been diagnosed at age 12 with schizophrenia. Numerous experts interviewed by The Post said the use of a stun gun on a fully restrained prisoner was an unreasonable use of force, particularly in a jail setting where a person is unlikely to flee. McKenna was being held at the Fairfax jail on a charge of assaulting a police office, stemming from an encounter in Alexandria in January. Alexandria police did not act on requests to pick her up after Fairfax police delivered her to the jail Jan. 26, and county deputies decided to transfer her themselves Feb. 3, saying that her mental state was deteriorating. Incident reports obtained by The Post indicated that she began resisting after being handcuffed and tethered to her cell door. During the confrontation, a deputy shocked her multiple times. Within minutes, McKenna stopped breathing.

With the perfect hourglass figure, backless dresses and silver tinted hair, jazz singer Joyce Bryant became known as “The Bronze Blonde Bombshell.” Although the Oakland, California native was raised in a strict Seventh Day Adventist home, she made her way to the stage in 1940. It was there she gained national and international acclaim for her earthy, sultry tone and figure flattering costumes. (It was rumored that Bryant’s dresses were so tight that she had to be carried off stage at the end of her performances.) But Bryant’s sex appeal didn’t always work to her advantage; while the artist was called the “black Marilyn Monroe” her records were often banned from radio waves for being too suggestive. Yet she maintained a significant following and the chocolate skinned diva was featured on several Jet covers throughout her career.
Mike O'Brien "By governing under the principle values of hard work, fair play and collaboration we can end the partisan gridlock in Congress. With the courage to serve and the experience to lead, I will bring a fresh perspective to Washington as someone who is still very much in touch with what my community needs. I am the veteran, I am the farmer, I am the businessman who can effectively take the action required to tackle the nation’s most pressing issues."
