ABC, NBC Censor Largest Native Mobilization In Decades Against Dakota Access Pipeline Native nations across the continent sign a new treaty opposing oilsands expansion as anthropologists, historians and museums condemn destruction of Sioux sites, but you wouldn’t know it from the mainstream media.
By Joe Catron @jncatron | September 26, 2016
NEW YORK — As thousands of supporters around the world have joined demonstrations in solidarity with Native land and water defenders blocking the planned Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota, the largest Native mobilization in decades remains absent from some of the biggest news media in the United States.
Jim Naureckas, editor of the media watchdog site FAIR.org, released a report on Thursday which noted that “to this day, ABC News and NBC News have yet to broadcast a word about the pipeline struggle.”
Among the “Big Three” television networks, CBS first broached the story on Sept. 5, in “a lone report on CBS Morning News (9/5/16), amounting to 48 words read at 4 o’clock in the morning,” although Naureckas found the channel has since “returned to the story repeatedly.” Read more >

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe asked Boasberg to reconsider but he declined to do so in a short order issued on Friday. Read more >

UCLA ratchets up its physicality but still falls short against Stanford Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer
PASADENA, Calif. -- For nearly 60 minutes at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, it seemed like UCLA had finally found a solution for its Stanford problem.
It wasn’t pretty, but that was the idea.
UCLA instituted major schematic changes in the offseason, and they were made with this type of game and this specific opponent in mind. The Bruins were sick and tired of getting physically dominated by Stanford. They wanted to be able to match the Cardinal’s physicality, play a field position game and grind out a win.
After eight consecutive losses to Stanford -- the Bruins’ longest losing streak to a single opponent since the invention of the face mask -- style points were no longer of any consequence. Read more >
