Prison Planet can't have it both ways.
They say the press and media are in with the NWO and cannot be trusted as far as they can be thrown, or in this instance when it suits Prison Planet's apparent agenda, they are paragons of virtue and their word is gospel?
Yes they can.
Thanks to the advent of the internet and blogging - The "press and media" are now composed of Individuals, who have not been co-opted, censored or edited in any way.
Blogs and individuals with websites have been the last bastion of honest journalism in this country and the best source for accurate information and unfiltered/uncensored reporting.
When Prison Planet refers to the 'press and media', as you are indicating they did; they are obviously referring to the mainstream media and newspapers who lied us into war and who active ignored the criminal wrongdoings of the government. Consequently, many of these papers are now going bankrupt after losing customers to the blog-sphere and honest internet news sites.
This is quite obvious from most of the Prison Planet articles pertaining to the issue, and to state otherwise is quite likely misrepresentation - which is wrong.
In cases such as this poor man's murder, the blog-sphere and internet have been far more capable at providing up-to date and accurate informing about the case. Many even allow for comments from the readers, which is far better than 'letters to the editor' and allows a much greater likelihood for exposure and thus, it causes even more reader contribution.
The authorities and governments (municipal, etc) can then read the comments, and use this additional input to aid in decision making.
Perhaps public opinion on the internet will have an effect on how the perpetrators are punished in this case. These officers may have to be convicted so as to 'take one for the team' in order to calm the public down and improve appearances.

wow some of the comments here defending the police are downright disgusting,there is never ever going to be justification for pushing a man who has his hands in his pockets,back turned walking away from you. it is what is is the video is right there to see.
Just because he might have been an alchoholic and might not have been in the fittest shape does that mean its more acceptable that he died after being pushed?
so with that logic i can go and push a Aids/cancer patient i see at a protest walking away from me hands in pocket not being aggressive? when the police come to arrest me ill say hey "he was living on borrowed time" as one insensitive person said?
the guy could have been an olympic runner still dont make it any better.

I know, it's fantastic isn't it. 1 by one the police lies are coming undone.
I just hope that ALL who have lied, fabricated/with held evidence and perverted the course of justice. Will be put to trial. I have no faith in the legal system, so i doubt that they will.
The officer captured on video pushing a man during the G20 protests in London has been suspended, police have said.
Ian Tomlinson, 47, died from a heart attack minutes after the incident on 1 April.
The Metropolitan Police suspended the officer after the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) called for the penalty.
The IPCC has launched a criminal investigation into the newspaper seller's death.
