Media Bias: Mainstream Media Fails to Report on Muslim March Against ISIS

…Sanders himself has called out mainstream corporate media for its bias, and many award-winning journalists have done the same, illustrating how mainstream media is plagued by corporate, intelligence, political, and financial interests.

The War on Terror Is Based on Lies Told by Elites Who Actually WANT War

There is a consistent contradiction between the stated objectives of the War on Terrorism and the outcomes. Therefore we know the assumptions are wrong. Freedom has never been the goal. Continuous war is directly out of the Orwell dystopian novel: 1984. We are living that now.

14 Years of Censored News Has Denied Citizens Context For ISIS Attacks

14 Years of Censored News Has Denied Citizens Context For ISIS Attacks
