The American Media Hide from the Truth
Search Text Case Sensitive  Exact Words  Include Comments

The CIA created and accumulated from other sources a huge array of malware and cyber attack capability capable of stealing information from any individual, any government, any corporation, any intelligence agency and either leaving no trace or leaving a “fingerprint” of an innocent party. The CIA, being arrogant and incompetent, lost control over its monster which escaped and now is in the hands of we know not who. Floating around the Internet, it was sent to WikiLeaks. Listen to Julian Assange’s explanation of the capability of the CIA’s spyware, which includes end runs around encryption.

The presstitute media’s response was not outrage over the CIA’s criminal behavior, compounded by its incompetence in failing to keep the package from escaping. Rather, the whores who comprise the US media turned on Julian Assange for making known what we need to know. Brian Ross, the chief presstitute at ABC, wanted to know if WiliLeaks took money from Russia. Presstitute Andrea Mitchell, faithful to the CIA, quickly got former CIA director Michael Hayden on TV to agree with her that “Wikileaks has struck again” and revealed information damaging to the US about the CIA’s foreign intelligence operations. You can see what a great lie Andrea and Hayden have conspired to tell by listening to Assange explain the information delivered into his hands.

The American print and TV media are servants of the police state. This makes the US media the principal threat that Americans face. The US media is the handmaiden of war, the police state, lies, and evil. The presstitutes have no shame over their lack of integrity and the risk of thermo-nuclear war to which they expose humanity.

  1. The bad seed Harry Truman hatched out way back when is a grandfather now and as a senior citizen
    behaves as originally programmed . Old Harry was told in no uncertain terms that to control us; Frighten us! It has worked like a charm for decades now. The fear carried through the generations with ease and the media became the laxative to flush through old Harry’s toxic medicine.

    We Americans who invented a modern technique to sell soap powder over a hundred years ago now easily sell gunpowder the same way. Called originally by it’s sires “engineering consent”, because the Germans were using the term “propaganda”, it morphed into “manufacturing consent’ and finally into “alternate facts”.

  2. The American print and TV media are servants of the police state.

    Exactly.

    This makes the US media the principal threat that Americans face. The US media is the handmaiden of war, the police state, lies, and evil.

    It’s just another tool of the crazed demons who own them. They, and our own limitless gullibility and ignorance are the biggest threats “we” face.

    Virtually all of today’s Western MSM needs to be either shut down or completely restructured top-to-bottom; and the especially egregious ones from among the hordes of lying propagandist presstitute psychopaths in it need to be personally punished for their willful criminal misrepresentations. It’s as simple and stark as that.

    An impossible task. Israel and the neocons will not let it happen. The cancer is inoperable. Too bad the media demise is not close at hand.

    Fox is not innocent either. They are good at spreading Israel and neocon agenda just like WasPo or NYT. Examples:

    Sean Hannity --- Iran has nuclear weapons

    Bill O'Reilly --- In answer to a listner's email about why Saudi Arabia was not on Trump's list said because Saudis are fighting Al-Qaeda in Yemen.

    So much for truth telling, as FOX claims in addition to fair and balance.

    Piss on FAUX News. They're nothing but an outlet for Israel-First, neocon shit.

    The media keep reporting N Korea’s bombastic rhetoric and missile-rattling. However, they just leave it at that as though they’re raving. Left out is the other half of the equation and that’s the constant provocation by the S Koreans and the US. The ROK-US keep staging massive war exercises that are aimed at the DPRK including such things as drills to ‘decapitate’ the leadership and constantly hovering near their border. The public gets a one-sided view of what’s taking place. There’s lies of commission and lies of omission. This is just one example of the media constantly spreading war fever. The more one thinks about it the longer the list of how they lie to us gets.

  7. Fox News’ only value is as a momentary breather from the round-the-clock assault on everything once considered normal and even civilized.

    But they’re as slackjawed stupid as every other cuck ‘n’ neo out there – even as Trump is pulling off the most astounding longshot win in American political history, they’re too myopic to grasp that there is a fundamental sea-change in the conservative, and conservative-leaning, voter, who is otherwise all out of patience and trust in a dead two-party system; no, all they see is a fresh opportunity to hide behind Trump and use him as a battering ram to force-feed America the AIPAC shopping list one more fu#$%@! time, while winking conspiratorially at Goldman-Sachs up in their opera box.

    If Flaubert ever returns from the dead to update his Dictionary of Received Ideas, he’ll no doubt define “change” as “golden opportunity to sell the same old shit in a shiny new wrapper”

  8. 6 Corporations own 90% of American media outlets, precipitated by the Clinton Telecommunications Act of 1996. It is true to say that America is no longer a capitalist society anymore. Competition laws are not enforced and governments do the bidding of oligopolists and Wall Street.
    These oligopolies must be broken up and replaced by numerous competitors. The corporate gangsters who run them must be indicted, convicted and sent to jail for a long time. Only when the media represents the totality of views of the American people – not the narrow views of the oligopolists – will America start becoming a normal state, not an exceptional state with a unique vocation.

  9. Do you guys realise that while you’re having this arcane discussion, President Trump is preparing new regulations which will make the rich, richer, and impoverish you?
    Get out there an learn about the real stuff. The cost of health care, the cost of climate change, the inevitable disappearance of many jobs and your declining wages in the jobs which remain.
    You already know to approach the media with scepticism. That is good but not really the main game.
