Emmy Award-Winning Whistle Blower Amber Lyon Broke Away from CNN; Here’s Her Side of the Story!
Free & Equal empowers people to demand liberty, honesty and integrity from those they vote for. Amber Lyon is encouraging Americans to demand the same from journalists. Together, honest journalism and open elections can transform America – and that change is already beginning.
Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award-winning journalist, became famous during the Arab Spring, when she reported on Bahrain’s human rights violations and couldn’t get CNN to air certain stories; she investigated further and discovered that CNN was in fact was taking money from dictators worldwide in exchange for content.
Since Amber Lyon was fired after over a year of conflict with her bosses, she has been pursuing her vision of journalism by acting “as a watchdog of government and a muckraker, not a puppet.”
Free & Equal is dedicated to supporting integrity like Amber’s by uniting all honest media, musicians, authors, leaders, and providing support for grassroots movements and causes, including breaking the stranglehold of the two-party system.
Free & Equal’s next two podcasts will feature Intellectual Revolution’s Ty Loomis and Matt McKinney (www.intellectualrevolution.tv). Then 2012 Presidential Candidates -Gov. Gary Johnson of Libertarian Party (www.garyjohnson2012.com) and Jill Stein of the Green Party (www.jillstein.org). Stay tuned!
Creating honest media can only be done with the help of people who are tired of mainstream misdirection.

Please note that the debate has been rescheduled for November 5th due to hurricane Sandy.
Libertarian Party candidate Gov. Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein will sound off once more before Election Day, with both presidential hopefuls now slated to debate live from RT’s Washington, DC studio on November 5.
Tens of thousands around the globe watched earlier this week when broadcasting legend Larry King moderated a debate between the top third-party candidates live from Chicago. As those politicians continue to be shunned by the mainstream media and political establishment alike, though, they remain excluded from presenting their platform to the country on the eve of a historic election. RT aims to make a difference, however, and will host Johnson and Stein to speak their minds on the topics Americans really care about in 2012.
Following the success of this week’s Third Party Presidential Debate broadcast on RT live from Chicago, the top candidates as selected by voters on the Free and Equal Elections Foundation website will move on to a second debate from the nation’s capital, this time answering questions dedicated solely to foreign policy.
“The voters have spoken, and we are pleased to announce that Gary Johnson and Jill Stein will advance to the second debate,” Christina Tobin, founder and chair of Free and Equal, tells RT.
When Johnson and Stein took the stage to participate in the first third-party debate this year, the candidates sounded off on questions that, while vital to the voting public, were absent from the discussions held between President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney during the televised debates that selected only Democrat and Republican politicians to participate.
The debate, which was originally set for October 30, was postponed as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
The second and final third-party presidential debate will be held on November 5 from 9:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time, (November 6, 1:00 a.m. – 2:30 a.m. GMT) and will be aired on RT America as well as RT.com and on RT’s YouTube channel.
The 2012 Third Party Presidential Debate participants include Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, & Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson.
The debate was moderated by Larry King & hosted by the Free And Equal Elections Foundation at the Hilton Chicago. Topics discussed include war on drugs, legalization of marijuana, foreign policy, civil liberties, economy, education reform, & domestic policy.

Edward Griffin, award-winning Fox News anchor Ben Swann, and New York Times bestselling author and economist Tom Woods.

“Heading into the Michigan and Arizona primaries, as well as Super Tuesday, we’re looking for the Ron Paul Powercast to blow our previous viewership numbers out of the water,” notes Revolution PAC Chair Gary Franchi. “This event promises to be an outstanding booster for liberty activists and honest government advocates nationwide.”
Also on the Powercast docket include former congressional candidate John Dennis; author, activist and radio host Adam Kokesh; constitutional law attorney Dr. Edwin Vieira; New York Times bestselling author and radio host Charles Goyette; Dr. Murray Sabrin; Oath Keepers President Stewart Rhodes; Sheriff Richard Mack; author and activist Tom Mullen; New York Times bestselling author and historian Kevin Gutzman; homeopath and radio host Robert Scott Bell; former Ron Paul Political Director Penny Freeman; Free & Equal founder Christina Tobin; Freedom’s Phoenix founder Ernest Hancock; Liberty Candidates founder Gigi Bowman; America’s Future Foundation’s Richard Lorenc; Institute for Truth in Accounting founder and CEO Sheila Weinberg; radio personality Greg Bishop; former NY State Assembly candidate Danny Panzella; and singer/songwriter Jordan Page.

Revolution PAC’s groundbreaking alternative election broadcasts kicked off January 21 for the South Carolina Primary in the wake of the super committee’s call for a nationwide boycott of cable/network outlets, which have exhibited consistent reporting bias against Rep. Paul. Live broadcasts for the Florida Primary and Nevada Caucuses followed, each drawing as many as 20,000 viewers.
Revolution PAC is supporting U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination and his consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising, direct mail campaigns, vote-watching initiatives and innovative Web promotions complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations are being accepted by Revolution PAC to support that effort.
