The Corporate Media Complex: Drawing Back the Veil on the U.S. Propaganda Machine

The Corporate Media Complex:
Drawing Back the Veil on the U.S. Propaganda Machine

by Dr. Robert P. Abele
Posted June 6, 2011

Corporate controlled mediaEven to the casual observer, the last thirty years has witnessed a revolution in American media,

1 No longer fulfilling the valued democratic function of “the fourth estate,” the media complex has co-opted itself simultaneously into both mega-corporations and government megaphone.

2 The result is a government-corporate-media complex, whose function is to profit those who run them and use them. It is the point of the following analysis to elucidate the existence, structure, and values of this mega-complex. The ensuing eight-part argument is intended to produce in the reader the commitment to become the media, since there is currently no fourth estate in the U.S. More…

Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation

Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation
by Washington’s Blog
Posted May 24, 2011

DisinformationPreface: This handy set of rules covers most of the games which disinformation artists play on the Internet (and offline). When you know the tricks, you’ll be able to spot the games. Even if you’ve read this list before, you might be surprised at how useful it is to brush up on these tricks.

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as “kooks”, “right-wing”, “liberal”, “left-wing”, “terrorists”, “conspiracy buffs”, “radicals”, “militia”, “racists”, “religious fanatics”, “sexual deviates”, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism reasoning — simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent’s viewpoint. And much, much. more…….

Prepping Minds for War Against China

Prepping Minds for War Against China

preparing for war with China?You’d think the U.S. was already at war with China, given the immense amount of anti-China rhetoric spouting from the government and media. But selling wars takes time. The average American hasn’t bought in to this false advertising yet. So the big lie will be repeated until its roots are deeply sunk into the American psyche: China, says the U.S. government, is a threat that needs to be “dealt with.”

A quick glance at the numbers reveals that Mr. Gates and the unquestioning U.S. media are unabashed hypocrites: China is nowhere near the U.S. when it comes to military expenditures: the U.S., under Obama, will spend $725 billion in 2011(!), while China will spend $80 billion.

When it comes to overseas military bases, China has zero; the U.S. has at least 737! More…

Homeland Security shuts down dozens of Web sites without court order

Homeland Security shuts down dozens of Web sites without court order

Homeland SecurityThe Homeland Security Department’s customs enforcement division has gone on a Web site shutdown spree, closing down at least 76 domains this week, according to online reports.

While many of the web domains were sites that trafficked in counterfeit brand name goods, and some others linked to copyright-infringing file-sharing materials, at least one site was a Google-like search engine, causing alarm among web freedom advocates who worry the move steps over the line into censorship.

“When a site has no tracker, carries no torrents, lists no copyright works unless someone searches for them and responds just like Google, accusing it of infringement becomes somewhat of a minefield,” writes Torrentfreak, “Unless you’re ICE Homeland Security Investigations that is.” More…

Another Warning about the Media

Another Warning about the Media

Trash mediaAs those who have been following me for some time know, I place a big focus on reminding readers about the media. So for those of you who are new to this site, I want to warn you about the media because many people have been brainwashed to believe the trash that’s been plastered on TV, the radio and print media. And I will tell you right now that 99% of what you have heard from the media (TV, radio, print and Internet) is complete BS.

The simple fact is that the media could care less about supplying its audience with credible and unbiased experts. This is why you see so many extremists claiming hyperinflation is a 100% certainty in the U.S. and other false prophecies. Others claim that the U.S. is already in a deflationary spiral. More…

A War On The Truth

A War On The Truth
by Bob Livingston
Posted December 13, 2010

Jullian AssangeJulian Assange is public enemy No. 1… and possibly Time’s Person of the Year. The founder of the WikiLeaks website, which specializes in releasing the information Global Governance doesn’t want you to know, is either a traitor, a spy, a terrorist or a hero, depending on who is talking.

The release of diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks has embarrassed the ruling elite. It revealed that they are a cabal of petty, backbiting, untrusting and untrustworthy tyrants, eager to do or say anything to have their way and grow their empire. And that embarrassment is at the heart of the public uproar that has ensued since the cables were released.

The latest is, in fact, the second embarrassment. The first came earlier this year after WikiLeaks published a video of soldiers using a United States Army Apache helicopter to slaughter two Reuters photojournalists and a van full of Iraqi civilians that came to their aid… yucking it up all the while. Two children in the van were also injured. More…

A Crisis Worse than ISIS? Bank “Bail-Ins” Begin…”Your Life Savings Could be Wiped out in a Massive Derivatives Collapse”

A Crisis Worse than ISIS? Bank “Bail-Ins” Begin…”Your Life Savings Could be Wiped out in a Massive Derivatives Collapse”
By Ellen Brown
Posted December 30, 2015

Cyprus, Greece, Portugal came first, you are nextWhile the mainstream media focus on ISIS extremists, a threat that has gone virtually unreported is that your life savings could be wiped out in a massive derivatives collapse. Bank bail-ins have begun in Europe, and the infrastructure is in place in the US. Poverty also kills.

At the end of November, an Italian pensioner hanged himself after his entire €100,000 savings were confiscated in a bank “rescue” scheme. He left a suicide note blaming the bank, where he had been a customer for 50 years and had invested in bank-issued bonds. But he might better have blamed the EU and the G20’s Financial Stability Board, which have imposed an “Orderly Resolution” regime that keeps insolvent banks afloat by confiscating the savings of investors and depositors. Some 130,000 shareholders and junior bond holders suffered losses in the “rescue.” More…

Meanwhile, Over At The “New York” Stock Exchange: Even More Lasers

Meanwhile, Over At The “New York” Stock Exchange: Even More Lasers
by Zero Hedge
Posted December 29, 2015

high speed traders, making money out of nothingHigh-frequency trading — the practice of making thousands of algorithmic stock trades per minute — is about to get a big boost in the USA. Anova, a company that specializes in deploying low-latency networks for stock trading, is completing an ultra-high-speed laser network between the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the NASDAQ. The link will be just a few nanoseconds faster than the current microwave and fiber-optic links — but in the world of high-frequency trading (HFT), those nanoseconds could result in millions of dollars in profits for the trading companies. Such is the insanity of the stock markets; such is the unbelievable capacity of HFT to create money out of almost nothing.

Because this, ladies and gentlemen, is what “trading” has become. More…

Exposing BlackRock: Who’s Afraid of Laurence Fink and His Overpowering Institution?

Exposing BlackRock: Who’s Afraid of Laurence Fink and His Overpowering Institution?
By Andrew Gavin Marshall
Posted December 27, 2015

Lawrence Fink of BlackRockIt’s not a bank, nor an insurance company, central bank, finance ministry or sovereign wealth fund. But it advises or owns such institutions. It operates virtually unregulated, often in the background, yet there is scarcely a company, country or region of the planet that this, the world’s largest asset management firm, does not touch or influence.

At a mere 27 years of age, BlackRock manages $4.5 trillion in assets, making it the single largest investor on Earth. It manages more wealth than Japan and Germany have in GDP. In fact, only China and the United States have a larger GDP than BlackRock has assets under management. Yet when one includes assets that the company not only manages, but advises upon, the number soars to around $15 trillion, roughly equal to US GDP. More…

billionaires don't EARN money, they MAKE money

You do not become a billionaire through labor. You become a billionaire through inheritance, corruption or economic rents – or, in most cases, some mixture of all three.

same puppet master pulling strings on both sides

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

main stream media propaganda

It is obvious that the US government is destroying Assange to signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information. It is therefore also obvious that any journalist who fails to use whatever platform they have to speak out against Assange’s persecution has no intention of ever publishing anything that the US government doesn’t want published. Their silence on or support for what is being done to this man can and should be taken as an admission that they are nothing other than state propagandists.
