Copaganda: How Police Bought the Media | Corporate Casket

Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a weekly series where bad businesses go to die.  Cops weren’t always portrayed as the good guys in movies, tv, and the news. Back before 1910, they were usually shown as “incompetent fools”. But, that’s when police organizations stepped in and shaped how the media could portray law enforcement with threats, blackmail, and bribes. By 1950, the LAPD had control of the scripts for one infamous cop show, and thus: Copaganda was born. Today, it’s everywhere you look and it's impacting more than you would ever guess.  Connect With Me: https://linktr.ee/iilluminaughtii’ Sources: https://justpaste.it/c7vo9 Writers/Researchers/Helpers: Jess Hubbert This episode was edited and mixed by: G.

When AI Art Becomes Exploitative and Unethical | Corporate Casket

Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a weekly series where bad businesses go to die.  AI has been writing and creating art more and more recently; while these programs can be fun to use, it’d led to an uptick of people in these industries fearing for their jobs. Will book covers become AI generated? What about the books themselves? What about the articles reporting on these books?

Welcome to Multi Level Mondays, a weekly series all about multi level marketing, pyramid schemes, and ponzi schemes. When George Santos came crashing onto the scene he advertised himself as a “walking, living, breathing, contradiction” to Republicans. He didn’t mention that he was also a con man. But, with the swipe of a keyboard and the release of one groundbreaking New York Times article the truth finally came out. Almost everything the politician had said about his life had been a lie, and we have no clue who he really is. Now, new stories seem to come out by the day and the situation just keeps getting worse.

Don’t buy that coffee! Pay off your student loans! He has been upheld as one of the utmost experts on all things money, but how good is his advice, really? With people starting to question the validity of his preaching, there are other things going on that are raising a few eyebrows. His reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic was, well, concerning, and the “religious” values he places on all who work for him have brought up a few concerns.

From pesticides to genetic modification, there has been a following of said movement for nearly 100 years.

Well they were going to grab 40 kids and have them “fend for themselves” in a fake desert town in New Mexico. The truest recipe for disaster for sure! I hear tales of kids drinking bleach, being burned and only being paid $5,000 for the privilege of working 24/7 for 40 straight days. This here is the story of what would become CBS’s most controversial show from the early 2000’s and maybe ever.

Telling people he could heal them with some sort of magic powers, claiming to be linked to the divine, and oh yeah, raking in millions of dollars in the process. But when he was unceremoniously ousted for being a cheat in 1986 all hope seemed lost. That is, until the 2000s when he staged a comeback and returned bigger and worse than ever.

But, there was a darker side to the singer hidden in the background. His horrific actions remained in the shadows, thanks —-in part—- to the music industry seemingly refusing to lose one of their brightest stars. But after a groundbreaking documentary, it all came crashing down and this once admired star has now become one of the most hated people in the music industry.

We will discuss any and everything from bad charities, terrible CEOs, and businesses that have a lot to hide.  D.A.R.E was started around the same time that the “War on Drugs” started to sweep across the United States. Created and run by police officers across the country, D.A.R.E’s goal was to educate children about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, particularly the legal danger. There was everything! The catchy jingle, the mascot, and even a children’s choir. But, it was also missing a few things, like any research-based methods and practices. Turns out, that’s an important ingredient and as the years have gone by studies have found that despite the cute mascot, D.A.R.E failed in its mission to protect future generations from drug addiction.  Connect with me: https://linktr.ee/iilluminaughtii Sources: https://justpaste.it/33o20 Writers/Researchers/Helpers: Jess Hubbert This episode was edited and mixed by: G.
