Ep.2 Why the Mainstream Media IS The Enemy Of The People
More Than 50 Years Have Passed Since America Had A Free Press
"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the public believes is false," - William Casey, CIA Director
“The American Media is incurious, slothful, consensual, pedestrian, biased without acknowledgement, fearful of challenging power, and not particularly honest.” Ambrose Evans Pritchard
The quote above slamming the American Media was written nearly 20 years ago by a top Washington DC reporter. Eventually he wrote an entertaining yet maddening book called The Secret Life of Bill Clinton . The heroes of the non-fiction book are little guys, like you and I. Sadly, you’ve never heard about most of them, but they opposed powerful, connected sociopaths and their violent henchmen. These are the kind of people novelist John Grisham and John le Carre usually feature in their colorful thrillers.
The Secret Life of Bill Clinton covered the massive lies, deception, fraud, cruelty and outright felonies of the Clinton administration. The media pundits, editors, reviewers and columnists, what we call the Mainstream Media (MSM), mostly turned a scathing eye on the book and its revelations, then and now.
Today, one would add “deception, deceit, treason, and accomplices-to-a-crime” to the description of the American Media. Truly, the mainstream media is the enemy of any peaceful and liberty-loving person anywhere.
From Bernays to Bernanke, America has been on a pretty good, almost euphoric, 100-year high. But all good things have to die. And bad things too. “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of,” Said Edward Bernays in 1929. Even more true today. The handful of media companies that control the flow of disinformation and infotainment in America controls and implants the desired message. Putin Bad? Old Glory Good? No problem spinning the desired emotions and agit-prop to people.
An astute person at Zerohedge.com website posted: “Orwell vs Huxley: Maybe They Both Got It Right, 8,000 hits. Hippo vs Crocodile at the water hole Killing Frenzy, 32 million Hits. Miley Cyrus, Wrecking Ball video, 700,000,000 hits.” Absorb those numbers for a moment and you become almost hopeless. Almost.
Yet the American media aligned with the American Empire is losing battle-after-battle, to thousands of blogs like Rense, STR, Zerohedge, Infowars and millions of YouTube filmmakers. The MSM is losing skirmish after skirmish, losing the information war, shot by shot. Exactly how the mighty British Empire lost their colonies long ago shot by shot - America will one day lose hers.
Today, those in power are desperate to maintain control of their fiat money system through media propaganda, an oppressive police presence, and false flags followed by worldwide military invasion/occupation.
“The propagandized people in the West have no idea of the fate toward which their demented governments are driving them,” wrote Paul Craig Roberts recently.
People from every walk of life and social standing are beginning to ask painful questions: “Is the Cockpit audio from MH17 released yet?” asked commenter Ebworthen, at Zerohedge.com. “Where is that audio and / or transcripts?"
More than two weeks have passed since the New York Times mentioned MH17 in a feature story. "The U.S. government has grown strangely quiet on the accusation that it was Russia or her allies that brought down the Malaysian airliner with a Buk anti-aircraft missile," wrote Ron Paul (Ron Paul Slams Media MH17 "War Propaganda")
"The little that we have heard from U.S. intelligence is that it has no evidence that Russia was involved. Yet the war propaganda was successful in convincing the American public that it was all Russia's fault. It's hard to believe that the U.S., with all its spy satellites available for monitoring everything in Ukraine that precise proof of who did what and when is not available."
Slowly and almost by design, the drums of war become louder - to protect the faltering fiat petrodollar at any costs. News has long since become Newspeak, as Orwell warned and as William Casey predicted.
In the 21st Century, where attention-starved masses channel surf through hundreds of channels of infotainment, villains now come in all shapes and sizes, from ISIS to Ebola to angry Black protestors. Better, that way, to keep the masses desensitized and cowering in fear.

When did the fear mongering begin? Decades ago the devious attacks inside America against American citizens began with Waco. A combined tactical attack by the ATF and FBI on a compound filled with men, women and children, using armored vehicles ended in a fiery cataclysm and many deaths.
Two years later to the day, in Oklahoma City, a powerful bomb destroyed the Federal Building. The mainstream media reported a pair of militia men constructed a so-called fertilizer bomb (ANFO) and destroyed the Murrah building. The American media, "presstitutes" as Paul Craig Roberts calls them, overwhelmingly blamed the mass killing on one man: Timothy McViegh.
In the days after the towering ruins of the Murrah building lay exposed, US Army Brigadier General Benjamin Partin and other demolition experts wandered through the rubble. With extensive knowledge of explosives, Partin showed with graphic evidence, beyond a reasonable doubt how the building was destroyed from the inside. As many as four charges were detonated, dumping the higher floors into the second floor nursery, killing the children there. General. Partin said of the strategic placement of core charges: “This is not conjecture, and it is not a theory. This is the way the building came down.” Naturally, no mainstream American media reported his expertise or findings.
"Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance," wrote another top weapons expert named Albert Einstein. But Americans preferred to believe their American media and mistrust the growing number of conspiracy theorists. Not surprisingly people preferred to believe their "Free" press.
"This is the same press that follows protesters around, supporting their complaints about how the Constitution is being trashed, but nary a word when Habeas Corpus was suspended" wrote USMC veteran Gordon Duff exactly FOUR years ago in a column called, Public Enemy Number One: The American Press,
But WHY exactly would the media acquiesce to their powerful government and deceive the public? Preeminent blogger, Matt Drudge, answered that question perfectly, in an acid-laced yet poetic fashion. Deceit is entirely by design.
“Reporters marry sources who work for clients who employ bureau chiefs
Who dine with agents who wine the lawyers who date the editors
Who have sex with the reporters who share the beachhouses
With the sources who are married to the bureau chiefs
Who hire the reporters who are married
To the lawyers who date
With the editors
Who have sex with
The sources after meeting
With lawyers who lobby Congress
To protect a president who is friends with
The bureau chiefs who hire the reporters who
Have sex with the editors who blast the internet websites. . .”
“How Much Money Do You People Need?”
Hollywood is a huge media & entertainment monster. Like the destructive monsters Hollywood creates for their Sci-Fi movies. Today you can easily predict the Oscar winners simply by asking yourself: Which Movie Best Glorifies the State? Which movie director best glorifies the exploits of the American military machine? Which movie depicts the Tribe in a positive light? Which movies depict the Tribe in a negative light? Those movies will be winners and losers.
Before we pick the winners, let us examine the biggest loser in recent years. Bulworth was released in 1998 but remains prophetic today (Bulworth - Movie Quotes).
While living in LA in 2000, I was the first person to show extended clips of the film on Public Access TV there, and list why exactly the movie was subversive. And why it won few if any Oscars and probably ended the career of Warren Beatty. Sadly true in both regards.
Addressing a powerful group of Jewish movie moguls at a fundraiser, Senator Bulworth/ Beatty says to them in the movie: “The funny thing is how lousy most of your stuff is. You know, you make violent films, you make dirty films, you make family films, but just most of them are not very good, are they? Funny that so many smart people can work so hard on them, and spend all that money on them, and, what do you think it is? It must be the money. It turns everything to crap.”
No Oscars for you, Warren. But your movie will withstand the test of time. Unlike other, huge Oscar winners that glorify the state and fortify their lies. Like Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which won Best Oscars galore for The Company’s favorite director.
For many people, myself included, Bigelow is comparable to Nazi darling, Leni Riefenstahl among wealthy and influential Hollywood filmmakers. Others have noticed too. Leni Riefenstahl Award Presented to Kathryn Bigelow.
Seymour Hersch, perhaps the last of the genuine honest reporters in the MSM, wrote that the entire daring capture and execution of Osama bin Laden featured in Zero Dark Thirty, was a brilliant and profitable lie from beginning to end. Unfortunately Seal Team Six cannot say one way or the other, since they all died in a helicopter crash soon after. Dead men tell no tales, I guess.
Seymour Hersch suggested one way to improve the mainstream media: “Close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which is to be an outsider.”
Many young reporters have some scruples, as we’ve seen from Michael Hastings, Don Bolles and Andrew Breitbart, but they end up dead. Too few editors and publishers ask questions or seek answers, I learned sadly, when I wrote this column called 911 - Too Hot To Handle? .
Someday, editors and publishers will look in the mirror each morning and ask themselves: How the hell did I help destroy America? Easy. You sold out, little by little and for way too long, to those people in power you knew were destroying the principles in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Curious Addendum: Did anyone notice how little curiosity the mainstream media had, immediately after Sandy Hook/ New Town, to interview the author of the Hunger Games? I searched Web and News on Google in the days and weeks afterwords and found nothing. Suzanne Collins lived very close to New Town, Connecticut. She wrote a book about kids killing kids. WTF, I thought? Hollywood has glorified The Hunger Games trilogy and yet, news-gathering has been left to average citizens like Wolfgang Halbig , to seek some answers. The American Media cannot not be bothered to ask any painful or pertinent questions. About Anything.
