what do you expect? Every thing on tv is on tv for a reason. For all those people that think the history channel is telling the truth know that you are being played.

My favorite was when they debunked the myth that Adam could not screw up a test so bad that it ended with a cannon ball getting sent through two houses and a car- MYTH BUSTED

Big Business controls cabletv


Was it all the commercials that gave that away or did some deep probing investigation realize this? I heard on the radio they have things called "sponsors" that do the same thing.

not aloud to talk about RFID, pretty much says in a nutshell that those guys are total pawns, wether they like it or not, legal contracts huh.

this isn't the first time they pulled an episode either if I recall.

whatever though, you still watch tv? enjoy your subliminals i mean adverts.

ed: wtf is wrong with....just, watch the second video...bordering on human experiments much. allow me to sumarize, "it didn't blow up in the pig meat so lets test it in a human"

quit being a sarcastic troll.

ANYWAY, in regards to this, yea i've seen it before. It is old news, but i think this is pretty telling.

Ahh I see where this is going.

Because they were told not to air an episode on how hackable a RFID chip is, it means that it confirms the conspiracy that RFID will be used to track all of us.

It's not because showing and describing how such a device can be hacked is a bad idea.

It's like when they tested ways to beat a breathalyzer, if they had found something that worked, they are not going to show it!

It's like when they tested ways to beat a speed camera, if they had found something that worked, they are not going to show it!

Although that kind of defeats the purpose of testing myths to see if they are real or not. There are some myths we can test but some we can't? But alas, it's entertainment, not educational...

Well it's not ideal, no.

But I guess there is a line they won't step over for fear of upsetting advertisers and sponsors.

And they're the ones paying the bills.

Completely understood. Personally, the disclosure that it happened is enough for me. I don't really care if they do a show on RFID, Jimmy Hoffa or Miss Cleo... The fact that he said he wasn't doing a show on it, at least let people know what was going on.

I think that is as up front as you can be given the nature of media/advertising relationships.

Propaganda model



The second filter of the propaganda model is funding generated through advertising. Most newspapers have to attract advertising in order to cover the costs of production; without it, they would have to increase the price of their newspaper. There is fierce competition throughout the media to attract advertisers; a newspaper which gets less advertising than its competitors is at a serious disadvantage. Lack of success in raising advertising revenue was another factor in the demise of the 'people's newspapers' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The product is composed of the affluent readers who buy the newspaper — who also comprise the educated decision-making sector of the population — while the actual clientele served by the newspaper includes the businesses that pay to advertise their goods. According to this filter, the news is "filler" to get privileged readers to see the advertisements which makes up the content and will thus take whatever form is most conducive to attracting educated decision-makers. Stories that conflict with their "buying mood", it is argued, will tend to be marginalized or excluded, along with information that presents a picture of the world that collides with advertisers' interests. The theory argues that the people buying the newspaper are the product which is sold to the businesses that buy advertising space; the news has only a marginal role as the product.

You are someone reading/viewing it, you have a choice to decide whether or not it is relevant information....

in the end no one can force you to implant an rfid. but when they start implanting them on driver's licenses and bank cards then you're screwed.

sure you can leave you driver's license at home. but you'll risk a ticket every time you drive.

and you can always go every two weeks and withdraw all your pay check. then you'll have to walk around with a wad of cash. just in case of emergencies.

rfid are going to be a real pain. i heard they can be neutralized by wrapping aluminum foil around them, much like shop lifters line department store bags to block the security alarm from going off.

i would also try micowaving the f-ck out them until any circuits are fried. the plastic card should withstand it.

Yeah.. I think it's less concern over the tracking aspect and putting them in people etc, and more to do with them not wanting to know how risky trusting this tech in your money cards is.

I can only comment on Discovery Channel Australia, the US I assume is similar.

There isn't a huge amount of commercial advertisers on the channel, from observing I would say at least 50% of the ads are for other discovery channel shows, if not more...

the fact all those suits turned up shows its obviously hackable and by the looks of it after a quick google its not that expensive to do but can be time consuming so cloning your friend card for a cheap night out when they look away probably wont happen for a while
