Here's the latest: Another media smear, this one in Fortune.com (Fortune 500/Time, Inc.) June 19, 2014. Fortune Magazine and David Morris have done a serious disservice to their readers by posting this biased propaganda piece. For the record, I am not funded by the Koch Brothers or ALEC or any other group or corporation and I am disgusted by the insinuation that I am. This article (click to read) is a nuanced manipulation that lies by omission and half-truths, and slimes by intent. David Morris, the author, brings in ICLEI public relations and the Southern Poverty Law Center to 'balance' the article, and then concludes that Agenda 21 is necessary to save the planet---it 'requires some sacrifices, not all of them made entirely willingly'.
The following quote is from our interview; David Morris asked me if I had anything to add. "I guess what I want to ask you, David, is 'How committed you are to representing a particular point of view that's going to marginalize what I've told you?' I'm hoping that you're going to write an article that is genuine and fair...We have something serious going on in our country and around the world and it needs to be dealt with in a serious manner. If the major corporations which own the media are controlling that information we will not be able to get that information out to the people so that they can make these decisions for themselves. So I'm hoping--you have an opportunity here--and I'm really hoping that you're going to use it."
Watch the interview below. Judge for yourself how the media operates to manipulate public opinion and block the truth.
Another smear article--this one is in the Casper Wyoming Star-Tribune, November 5, 2012. Rosa spoke in Casper in October 2012, and the city planner and vice mayor put their spin on UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development in the article. Take a look at the article: click here
Now compare it with what Rosa really said.
REUTERS INTERNATIONAL INTERVIEWED ROSA FOR A SMEAR ARTICLE PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 15, 2012. Here is the video interview which was not used by the reporter for his article. Instead he wrote a smear suggesting that we are hysterical fanatics. Read the article here
THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION MAGAZINE, PROPERTY AND PROBATE, DID A SMEAR ARTICLE ON UN AGENDA 21 IN THEIR JULY/AUGUST 2012 ISSUE. HERE IS THE REAL VIDEO INTERVIEW.
The Huffington Post did a smear article on UN Agenda 21 on May 17, 2012. Here's the interview
Rosa was interviewed by Andrew Reinbach, Huffington Post columnist for an article on opposition to UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. Reinbach baited Rosa, put words into her mouth, asked her if she was 'afraid that she would be tarred with the same brush as the John Birch Society', and tried to suggest that zoning and UN Agenda 21 are the same thing. Rosa resisted his efforts to marginalize her and the fight against this blueprint for world inventory and control. At the end of the interview Rosa asked Reinbach if he was recording the interview and when he said he was, she told him that she also was recording it. This is probably why he didn't quote her or mention her in his biased article.
THE NORTHBAY BOHEMIAN NEWSPAPER DID A SMEAR ARTICLE ON ROSA KOIRE ON JUNE 15, 2011. Rosa was videoing and has the entire interview for you here. The article is full of misrepresentations and distortions, and poses our concerns about Agenda 21 as a joke. We think it's notable that the Bohemian requested an interview with Rosa two days after she reported Sonoma County Supervisor Valerie Brown to the California Fair Political Practices Commission for alleged conflict of interest. Supervisor Brown sits on the national board of ICLEI and, at the same time, voted for Sonoma County to pay ICLEI $83,000 to design a greenhouse gas emissions protocol for Sonoma County.
