Corporate Controlled Media
Mika Brzezinski, whose game of career musical chairs saw her leaving mainstream, right-wing Fox News for mainstream, left-wing MSNBC — just told the American public it’s the media’s job to “control exactly what people think.” That statement comprises the most blatant — if perhaps tacit — evidence pro-U.S. government propaganda measures passed with the 2017 NDAA have already begun.
Corporate Media fractures information and ideas into soundbites, eroding thereby our ability to comprehend complex ideas and follow patterns of events across time. And without the permanence necessary for accountability, journalism of the electronic age has been lured into delivering story lines more fit for entertaining an “audience” than enhancing public political agency.
It’s crystal clear now, for all to see, how the mainstream media operates. From the “sources inside” references, which almost always remain unnamed, to the provocative slant it chooses to use when covering any story involving President Donald Trump. While there is certainly no shortage of reasons to disagree with Trump, the mainstream media has flooded the infosphere with so much fake news, that reality and truth are nearly extinct.
CNN, where the term ‘fake news’ was helped coined, has come under fire in recent weeks for propagating misleading news about the elections in Ghana, Africa and attempting a smear campaign against Julian Assange by airing an interview that falsely accused Assange of being a pedophile. They have also recently been caught out using a screenshot from the computer game Fallout 4, stating it illustrated the Russian hacking.
CNN apologized to Assange in a tweet and removed the tweet containing the offensive comments made by ex-Deputy Director of the CIA, Phil Mudd. The CNN New Day statement reads, “An analyst on our air earlier today asserted that Julian Assange was a pedophile, and regrets saying it,” and continues saying, “In fact, CNN has no evidence to support that assertion.”
Forget the scandalous and fake news fabricated by the mainstream media (including CNN, ABC, NBC, BBC, FOX News, CBS News, and The New York Times) to spread propaganda and lies and brainwash its core audience to manipulate public opinion. Here are 2016’s top 16 news stories the mainstream media barely covered…
The U.S. government is now provoking Russia based on something that appears completely fabricated: the unsubstantiated claim that Russia hacked the U.S. election to help Trump win. Because these claims are being circulated minute by minute by the corporate media, they bear some analysis before the world is incinerated on the basis of ignorance, paranoia, and deception.
There is one fundamental issue everyone is missing. The claim is that Russia hacked the election – not by altering voting results – but by making public actual emails from the Clinton campaign and the DNC. In other words, the claim is that the Russian’s swayed the election for Donald Trump by revealing the TRUTH about the Clinton campaign and the TRUTH about the DNC.
With so much vitriol flying in every direction these days about fake news, Russian propaganda, misinfo and disinfo, it’s crucial to acknowledge and understand the fact that there is a definitive science to distorting reality and manufacturing public consent. Many of the deliberate techniques of this form of social mind control are well-documented, having been revealed by industry insiders, experts, and content manufacturers.
While the mainstream media has been leading an effort to silence and shut down those who would dare to report on a “dangerous” “fake news” scandal surrounding what has become known as “Pizzagate,” it seems that illegal sexual conduct has been repeatedly tied back to Washington insiders and political operatives. Check out this 2011 report by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
The CIA, an entity that has interfered in sovereign governments across the geopolitical chessboard for decades, has accused another country of doing exactly what the agency does best without offering any physical evidence for their claims.
We are in the middle of the death throes of the corporate and government controlled media, and we need to recognize that. They’re going away. Independent media are taking over. It’s called decentralization. Blackouts and censorship are the only weapons they have left. And guess how they’re trying to make that happen? They’re appealing to social media…
