10 Things About The U.S. News Media That They Do Not Want You To Know

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

Do you trust the news media?  Do you believe that the information that they are giving you is true and accurate?  If you answered yes to either of those questions, that places you in a steadily shrinking minority. Yes, on average Americans watch approximately 153 hours of television a month, but for their news they are increasingly turning to alternative sources of information such as this website.

Big news channels such as CNN, MSNBC and Fox News are losing hordes of viewers, and they are desperately searching for answers. Things have gotten so bad at CNN that they have been forced to lay off hundreds of workers. The mainstream media is slowly dying, but they will never admit it. They are still convinced that they can find some way to turn this around and regain the trust of the American people.  But it simply is not going to happen. The following are 10 things about the U.S. news media that they do not want you to know...

#1 The level of trust in the U.S. news media is at an all-time low.

According to a Gallup survey that was conducted last month, only 40 percent of all Americans have a "great deal/fair amount" of confidence in the mass media.  That ties the lowest level that Gallup has ever recorded.

Mainstream 'Journalist' Reveals Agenda; Calls For Rape, Destruction of Syria

Anthony Freda Art

Activist Post

It is well-known among informed observers and virtually anyone that has even the smallest shred of discernment that mainstream media outlets are nothing more than the mouthpieces for their respective governments, banks, and corporations. These outlets act as a clear propaganda machine drumming up the beat for war by the presentation of clever narratives, subtle falsehoods, and outright lies.

Such deceit relies on the trust of a beguiled public who simply cannot fathom the idea that they are being lied to on such a mass scale. Indeed, the secrecy of the true agenda is what gives propaganda its power. So it is very rare that mainstream outlets, their “journalists,” or other major figures openly state the agenda that is behind their reporting and gives purpose to their every word.

But this is exactly what Robert Caruso of the Boston Globe, Huffington Post, The Guardian, Daily Beast, The Jerusalem Post, and other mainstream outlets did in a fit of rage yesterday evening.

Vaccines: Penalizing the Unvaccinated?

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

Slate has enthusiastically supported vaccinations and, in particular, establishment talking points and narratives regarding them, as well as a particular focus on dismembering mainstream anti-vaccine views.

In an article titled, "Endangering the Herd," Slate argues that those refusing to receive vaccines should be penalized, and the act of refusing to be vaccinated be criminalized.

The article would claim:

Mainstream Media A "No Fly Zone" For Truth

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

It just keeps coming. The pro-war propaganda touting the necessity of intervention and invasion of Syria and the attempt to paint President Bashar al-Assad as a villain and butcher shows no sign of letting up anytime soon, at least not until the goal of the destruction of the secular Syrian government is completed and the Anglo-American oligarchy turns its sights on Iran.

And why would it let up? Such is the nature of war propaganda. Its purpose is to goad a gullible public, made up of individuals who would, in ordinary circumstances, not desire war and, in virtually all circumstances, have nothing to gain from it, into supporting an unfounded, immoral, and costly military operation against a people who are very similar to themselves.

It is precisely because of this fact that the propaganda must be incessant and continual. With every report drumming up support for US military intervention in Syria and coloring every report of events taking place inside or surrounding the country, there is no article in any mainstream media outlet that does not make a series of unfounded claims and reinforce the propaganda narratives provided by the State Department.

Has the "Conspiracy" Trigger Word Finally Run Its Course?

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Hollywood calls it jumping the shark, it's that moment when all has been done and peak has been obtained. The point when the beginning of the end has just begun. The journey of the word "conspiracies" and the phrase "conspiracy theory" has reached its glory days. The trigger word worked for a while. For long we were led to believe that if someone was accused of being a conspiracy theorist they were automatically wrong and automatically a lunatic.

Not proven wrong or proven a  lunatic, but simply wrong and lunatic. Remember those days?

Vaccine wars: the censoring of Rob Schneider

Anthony Freda Art
Jon Rappoport
Activist Post 

Yesterday, I reported on State Farm dropping Rob Schneider from their TV ads because he’s alerted people to vaccine dangers.

Because he has a view about vaccines that departs from the norm.

“Punch a hole in consensus reality and you can’t be a spokesman for our products.”

“Cause a ripple among the sleeping populace and you’re out.”

What’s next?

Well, I’ll tell you what could be next, based on the fact that the Internet runs via an interlocking system of commercial companies.

Doublethink: Media Reports No Military Action Against ISIS While Reporting Airstrikes Against ISIS

Melissa Melton
Activist Post

Are we at “war” with ISIS?

Nope.


According to our White House, who still cannot even manage to give an estimate about how much this…eh… (insert that word for whatever that one thing is called when one nation offensively blows up targets in other sovereign nations) is going to cost over in the Middle East, we’re at anything but a war.

In fact, when White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked that very question back on August 29 — “Is the United States presently at war with ISIS — yes or no?” — he answered a definite “no,” instead claiming,

CDC whistleblower: behind the media blackout

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

Aside from a few bland stories about William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, the major media have maintained a forced blackout.

Thompson has publicly admitted he and his co-authors committed gross fraud in erasing a vaccine-autism connection.

Consider the explosive angles on this story, angles which would ordinarily rate front-page coverage and top billing on the evening news.

Thompson, in writing, has admitted fraud. He was a co-author of the cooked and slanted 2004 study, published in the prestigious journal, Pediatrics.

That study gave a free pass to the MMR vaccine, and falsely denied the vaccine had any causal connection to autism.

Why Does ISIS Fit In So Perfectly With The PNAC Plan?

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Here are some simple burning questions whose answers can only be described by the globalist plans for a new world order. These questions strike at the root of the question all of humanity is asking: Who is ISIS?

1. Where do they bank? Or do they have a money tree?

2. Where do they get their guns from? Bullets? Knives?

3. Where do they eat, how do they get their food?

Getting Inside the Mind of Mainstream Media

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Mainstream media's lies, deceit, and propaganda are being dramatically exposed in real-time at an alarming rate. Anyone following alternative media knows what I'm talking about. Is it me or does it seem like the MH17 false flag happened years ago? We can see that false flags which are quickly exposed and blown wide open end up dropping to the bottom of mainstream media news.

We're seeing the pattern over and over again, so isn't it time we sharpen our skills and start predicting the mainstream media lies and propaganda before it happens? For those of us fully awakened, we have to be scratching our heads wondering, what else? What can we do to change and turbo-boost this information war for the better? What creative thing can we do to throw a monkey wrench into the globalist plans? Is it even possible? Let's examine some ideas.

CNN iReport on CDC whistleblower spreads like wildfire, then censored

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

On August 22, a user named Bobby Dee posted a CNN iReport about the CDC whistleblower who states he cooked data to hide a vaccine-autism connection.

CNN iReports aren’t official CNN stories. They’re “user generated news…opinions belong to the submitter.”

Well, Bobby’s submission, as Celia Farber reports at truthbarrier.com, rocketed to 45,232 views in a matter of hours. 178 comments, 17 thousand shares.

Then it was axed, removed, deleted.

The press takes a holiday…every day

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

I’ve published the essence of this article before. I continue to reprint it, now and then, because it illustrates a basic fact about the mainstream press:

Not only are they part of the problem; not only are they creating problems; not only are they sold out; the reporters themselves, who should be able to work up astonishment at mind-boggling facts, have lost that capacity.

They’ve lost the very urge that got them into the journalism trade in the first place.

Syrian Kurds, Not U.S. Military, Rescued Trapped Yazidis In Iraq

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In a perfect example of how world events can be misconstrued in mainstream media outlets for propaganda purposes, recent reports regarding trapped Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar have been used as cover for the justification of an American bombing campaign in Iraq.

This tragedy, which is very real, has been presented to the American public as the reason that the U.S. military is engaging in “targeted airstrikes” in Iraq, despite the fact that the area where the airstrikes initially took place was Erbil, a “hub” for major international oil companies which is not “in the vicinity” of Mt. Sinjar.

Although some airstrikes did eventually take place near Mt. Sinjar, the truth is that the trapped Yazidis were used as an excuse for the American military to act as protection for oil fields and international oil interests.

The Propaganda and Politics of MH17

Eric Draitser
Activist Post

The downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 (MH17) is a tragedy that will be remembered for years to come. However, the way in which the West has distorted the facts about what happened is no mere accident. Rather, it is a clear attempt by Washington and its allies and proxies to capitalize on the incident, using it as a weapon in their continued belligerent and aggressive policies toward Russia.

Recent days have seen a deluge of propaganda from both the US government and the Western media (especially US media) which, despite being short on facts, has attempted to place the blame for MH17 squarely on Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin. While this certainly is no surprise given the public demonization campaign of Russia throughout the conflict in Ukraine, it undoubtedly crosses the line from laughable to utterly irresponsible and dangerous. Given the already icy relations between the two countries, it seems that Washington has as part of its strategy the inflammation of tensions.

But why? What does the US political establishment, which includes both major parties, hope to gain from this tragedy? Or, perhaps more specifically, how does the United States plan to capitalize on the incident? The propaganda, spin, and outright lies from Western media cannot be understood in a vacuum. Rather, they must be recognized as part and parcel of the larger political agenda of the West both in Ukraine, and Eastern Europe as a whole.

The Mainstream Media has always been a Propaganda Tool of the Establishment

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” Joseph Goebbels, German Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda (1933-1945)

The mainstream media has long been used as of tool of a dominant minority who use communication systems to influence and control the masses through techniques which are now perfected today. As George Orwell, the former BBC propagandist during the Second World War and author of the infamous 1984 stated:
 The people will believe what the media tells them they believe.
Propaganda has evolved over centuries to take the form of a more subtle and sophisticated art than in previous ages. In 1965, Konrad Kellen crystallised the nature of modern propaganda in the introduction to a book titled Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes by French sociologist and philosopher, Jacques Ellul:

11 Tactics Used by the Mainstream Media to Manufacture Consent for the Oligarchy

Sigmund Fraud
Activist Post

The mainstream media is aging and collapsing under the weight of its own hubris and arrogance. Now entirely formulaic in presentation and predictable in substance, the ‘major’ outlets of news, which are monopolized under only a small handful of corporations, serve the purpose of misleading the public on important issues and manufacturing consent for government and the oligarchs.

The public is still largely numb to this reality, and in a wicked catch-22 for modern man, many people are still addicted to the very media that serves as the primary weapon of social control against them.

The tide is turning, however, and to help break the spell we bring you this comprehensive list of 11 tactics used against the public by the mainstream media to coerce consensus, divide, conquer, ridicule and stifle truthful or meaningful conversation about the state of our world.

Mainstream Media Hails New Vaccine Safety Study…by the RAND Corporation

Activist Post

Are you paying attention, kids? THIS is how propaganda works.

The mainstream media is falling all over themselves to hail the latest vaccine safety study. That’s right. This study proves that vaccines are safe as safe can be, so we should all go out and shoot ourselves and our kids up right away.

Just check out some of these reassuring headlines and excerpts:

Media Propaganda Foreshadows Massive False Flag Inside The United States

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

As the stagnant and depressed United States economy teeters on the brink of yet another collapse and the Anglo-American ruling class court war with Russia and China, there exists a number of crises that run the risk of exploding into full-blown chaos and resulting in a tragic world of misery for the little people at the bottom.

While daily news reports have no shortage of potential catastrophes, when one considers the predictive programming being provided by mainstream media outlets in recent months, there exists yet another cataclysmic possibility for the United States – a massive false flag terror attack that takes place on American soil and dwarfing 9/11 in scale.

Before elaborating, it is important to point out that this writer is not attempting to “predict” the next “attack,” nor am I planting my flag and claiming that such an “attack” will definitely occur. I am, however, stating that the predictive programming and talking points coming from the mainstream media and government outlets are signaling just such an event.

This is because, much like the months leading up to 9/11, the American public is being assaulted with an onslaught of reports suggesting the possibility of another major terror attack inside the United States.

Unanswered Questions in the Isla Vista CA Shootings

[Image Credit: WXYZ]
James F. Tracy
Activist Post

When mass shootings take place in the United States, corporate news media can almost uniformly be counted on to act as stenographers to power. They dutifully report exactly what they’re told by authorities with wholehearted trust and close to no due diligence. This appears to have been the case yet again in the May 23 Isla Vista California mass murder.

The public has been propagandized with a familiar storyline that law enforcement authorities have peppered with lurid details - including a disturbing “manifesto” and YouTube soliloquy from a well-to-do yet alienated man who had trouble forging relationships, so he went on a wild shooting spree then committed suicide.

Like numerous other tragic events that cry out for heightened measures against gun ownership, such as the Tucson shooting, the Sikh Temple bloodletting, the Aurora movie theatre massacre, and the Newtown school shooting, initial eyewitness accounts of what took place differ markedly from what news media presented in subsequent reports - those laid out in law enforcement press conferences just hours after the event.

Otto von Bismarck famously remarked, “Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.” In a society where the Second Amendment and gun violence have been vigorously politicized by powerful “reformists” like billionaire Michael Bloomberg, Attorney General Eric Holder, and President Barack Obama, journalists might be well-served by keeping this dictum in mind.
