Corporate Controlled Media
How it is possible that the president can bomb a foreign country or threaten a full-scale international war without so much as even mentioning the need for Congress to chime in, let alone actually vote on a declaration of war? The short answer is, disinformation and propaganda, which is the domain of mainstream media. When people are confused, when truth is hidden, when agendas are presented as life or death options, and when the public has no clue about which laws government is bound to, then anything goes.
Anyone can volunteer to be a fact-checker, says Google, cautioning that “Only publishers that are algorithmically determined to be an authoritative source of information will qualify for inclusion.” Currently, the growing list of 115 organizations includes the likes of CNN, The Washington Post, NBC, CBS, and The New York Times, to name a few. So now, not only will the corporate media be able to deem which content is acceptable and which isn’t, it’ll also be able to guide readers toward their own view on the matter.
Until recently, the theory that there is an elite pedophilia ring has been chalked up to being nothing more than a conspiracy theory. The segment which aired on mainstream media exposed the truth, however, which might be why Dutch company RTL pulled the plug on the Dr. Phil show which has aired since 2002. The Netherlands has come under fire in recent years for pedophile activity at the highest levels in society.
Journalists from CNN, The New York Times, MSNBC, ABC, Bloomberg, and Guardian among others, were included in Dr. Paul’this list. The list has been described as ‘epic.’
I no longer watch anything. TV time in my house is reserved for my kids who enjoy the antics of Zack and Cody. But, in the unlikely event that I were to return to watching the news again, it’s nice to know where I can go. Now I favor meditation.
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.
