Fair and Balanced Propaganda
As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in
its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its
"Propaganda is neutrally defined as a systematic form of
purposeful persuasion that attempts to influence the emotions, attitudes,
opinions, and actions of specified target audiences for ideological, political
or commercial porposes through the controlled transmission of one-sided
messages (which may or may not be factual) via mass and direct media channels.
A propaganda organization employs propagandists who engage in propagandism -
the applied creation and distribution of such forms of persuasion." -
Richard Alan Nelson, A Chronology and Glossary of Propaganda in the United
Most people generally think of propaganda in political
contexts, in particular to refer to certain efforts sponsored by governments
and political groups. Propaganda also has much in common with public
information campaigns by governments, which are intended to encourage or
discourage certain forms of behavior (such as wearing seat belts, not smoking,
not littering, conserving energy and so forth).
Its close cousins,
advertising and public relations, shares the same techniques as propaganda,
albeit for different purposes. Advertising and public relations can be thought
of as propaganda that promotes a commercial product or shapes the perception of
In recent years, the differences between propaganda,
advertising, and public relations have become more blurred as the roles of
government and commercialism have blended.
Ari Fleischer served as the White House Press Secretary
(propagandist) for George W. Bush from 2001 to 2003. Today you'll see him as a
regular neocon contributor to CNN.
The entire corporate media – from Fox to CNN and MSNBC
– is a propaganda machine erected by the ruling elite. Its primary
purpose is to disseminate globalist propaganda, shape public opinion, and keep
the false right-left paradigm that divides people going at all cost.
Once dubbed a "conspiracy theory," the Church Committee
investigation in 1975 exposed a secret Central Intelligence Agency
campaign to influence domestic and foreign media beginning in the 1950s.
Starting in the early days of the Cold War (late 40's), the CIA
began a secret project called
Operation Mockingbird, with the intent of buying
influence behind the scenes at major media outlets and putting reporters on the
CIA payroll. In 1948, Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner established
Mockingbird, and recruited Philip Graham from The Washington Post to run the
project within the industry. According to Deborah Davis in Katharine the Great;
"By the early 1950s, Wisner 'owned' respected members of The New York Times,
Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles." [Deborah Davis (1979).
Katharine the Great. pp. 137–138.]
After 1953, Operation
Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. It was
discovered that from the 1950s through the 1970s, the CIA was paying many
journalists in the USA and foreign locations to publish what they wanted.
These organizations were run by people with well-known left-wing views such as
William Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays
Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington
Post), Jerry O'Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry
Bingham, Sr., (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services)
and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor). [Carl Bernstein (20 October
1977). "CIA and the Media", Rolling Stone Magazine.]
Media assets include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated
Press, United Press International (UPI), Reuters, Hearst Newspapers,
Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service, etc. and 400 journalists, have secretly
carried out assignments according to documents on file at CIA headquarters,
from intelligence-gathering to serving as go-betweens.
Rolling Stone alleged CIA controlled journalists included Stewart Alsop (New
York Herald Tribune), Ben Bradlee (Newsweek), James Reston (New York Times),
Charles Douglas Jackson (Time Magazine), Walter Pincus (Washington Post),
William C. Baggs (The Miami News), Herb Gold (The Miami News) and Charles
Bartlett (Chattanooga Times).
Today, the mainstream corporate media has become the mouthpiece
of a emerging collectivist government and possesses an explicit capacity of
advocacy and ability to frame political issues.
Their agenda is to advance
the New World Order message.
"Democracy without honest information creates the illusion
of popular consent, while enhancing the power of the state and the privileged
interests protected by it. Democracy without accountability creates the
illusion of popular control, while offering ordinary Americans only cheap
tickets to the balcony. Too far away to see that the public stage has become
just a reality TV set." - Bill Moyers
Corporate Owned Mainstream
"In March 1915, the J.P. Morgan
interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary
organizations got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed
them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and
sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press
..They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the
greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought,
to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly
supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness,
militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international
nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers." - U.S. Congressman
Oscar Callaway, 1917
New World Order propaganda spokesmen are seeding the
corporate owned mainstream media.
Each of the major networks
feature their news anchors, reporters and pundits to offer up to the mesmerized
public audience a version of reality in line with the collectivist message of
the New World Order. Massive public relations campaigns are pitched to convince
the public these spokespersons offer credible opinion or commentary on a
particular subject area on which he/she is presumed to be knowledgeable.
Before you believe everything you see on TV, think about what these
insiders have at stake should they loose their crooked providers in government?
It is the job of these people to sell the American public on the merits of the
New World Order agenda.
Privately owned news media promote the
economic and political interests of the large companies that own or advertise
with them. These giant conglomerates, all belonging to the secret Bilderberg
Group, Council on Foreign Relations, the
Club of Rome, and the
Trilateral Commission, control the world's flow of information. They determine
what we see on television, hear on the radio and read in newspapers, magazines,
books, or on the Internet.
These publicly traded corporations try to
keep the Bilderberger guest-list a secret, and the corporate press scarcely
reports on the event at all. The likes of Microsoft, AT&T, Bechtel, Cisco,
Compaq and Price Waterhouse Coopers have nothing to fear from the press. Never
mind that Microsoft and NBC co-own MSNBC cable network. In fact, among the
frequently invited Bilderberg guests can be found the name of Anthony Ridder of

publications as the Detroit Free Press, the Miami Herald and the Philadelphia

guest on Hardball with Chris Matthews.
Mitchell is married to former
Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.

Cable News Network (CNN) was
founded in 1980 by media mogul Ted Turner as the first all-news television
channel in the US. It's counterpart, CNN International broadcasts to over 212
countries and territories worldwide.
State Sponsored News
In March 2011, CNN sent Amber Lyon and a journalist team to
Bahrain to cover the Arab Spring. As Glenn Greenwald of the UK’s Guardian
writes in his article: “In the segment, Lyon interviewed activists as
they explicitly described their torture at the hands of government forces,
while family members recounted their relatives’ abrupt disappearances.
She spoke with government officials justifying the imprisonment of activists.
And the segment featured harrowing video footage of regime forces shooting
unarmed demonstrators, along with the mass arrests of peaceful protesters. In
sum, the early 2011 CNN segment on Bahrain presented one of the starkest
reports to date of the brutal repression embraced by the US-backed regime."
CNN International (CNNi) never broadcast the documentary. Even
in the face of numerous inquiries and complaints from their own employees
inside CNN, it continued to refuse to broadcast the program or even provide any
explanation for the decision. To date, this documentary has never aired on
Lyon says she “saw first-hand that these regime claims
were lies, and I couldn’t believe CNN was making me put what I knew to be
government lies into my reporting.”
In March 2012, Lyon was laid
off from CNN and given a severance and health package in an effort to shut her
up. “At this point,” Lyon said, “I look at those payments as
dirty money to stay silent. I got into journalism to expose, not help conceal,
wrongdoing, and I’m not willing to keep quiet about this any longer, even
if it means I’ll lose those payments.”

Rupert Murdoch’s Twentieth Century Fox corporation has
admitted to planting political brainwashing within its globally popular TV
shows and indeed boasts that it is proud of the fact. A corporate video
currently being showcased on another part of Murdoch’s media empire,
MySpace.com, shows Fox executives and stars of its universally recognized shows
bragging about how they use the platform of hit shows that are broadcast
globally to implant messages about the supposed threat of global warming.
Fox has embarked on a deliberate campaign, which could only
have been done with the coordination of the script writers of each program, to
force people to accept the pseudo-science of
global warming by
brainwashing them into accepting it as a reality. This has been achieved by
weaving in messages about climate change and having popular characters in the
TV shows embrace specific tenants of the global warming manifesto.

modern day American Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda.
Media Influencing American Elections
Dating back to 1913, the
Tavistock Institute used polls to shape public opinion into
accepting Britain's entry into World War I. The plan to create
public opinion through the fake reporting of bogus polling date began as a
propaganda factory centered at Wellington House in London. Sir Edward Grey, the
British Foreign Secretary at the time, installed Lord Northcliffe
(Britains most influential newspaper magnate) as its director. Lord
Northcliffes position was supervised by Lord Rothmere on behalf of the
British Crown. The operational staff of Wellington House consisted of Lord
Northcliffe, and Arnold Toynbee, according to John Coleman. [The Common Sense Show]
Coleman, the author of the classic book
Conspirators Hierarchy, The
Committee of 300, was one of the the first writers to call attention to the
existence of Tavistock, in 1969, and the rest as they say is history.
Subsequently, we learn from Colemans work that polls were designed to not
really measure public opinion, they were designed to shape public
Donald Trump highlighted the problem of the dishonest
mainstream media in his campaign for President in 2016. For example, his
rallies were drawing overflowing crowds of tens of thousands, but the media
would not show those crowds or report on them. Conversely, they would use tight
camera shots to conceal the small crowds attending Hillary Clinton
Another example were the distorted polls the media fed the
public to discourage potential voters from voting. If the country believes the
race is essentially decided, some deflated voters stay at home and don't vote.
WikiLeaks published emails among Democrats talking about inflating poll numbers
of key Democratic constituencies by oversampling the number of Democrats
surveyed and undersampling Replublicans.
In a recent FOX poll, it
consisted on 43 Democrats, 36 Republicans, and 21 other. An NBC poll consisted
on 44 Democrats, 37 Republicans and 19 other. Clearly, the oversampling of
Democrats are designed to provide a Democrat result. In 1980 a Gallup poll
released two weeks before the election had Jimmy Carter leading Ronald Reagan
47-39. Two weeks later Reagan won in such a landslide that Carter conceded
before California was closed.
Because polls are designed to project the
behavior of more than 120 million people, an incorrect voter model in a survey
of several hundered people can easily throw election results off by many
In another leak of emails of Hillary Clinton campaign manager
John Podesta, strange language filled with code words seemed to expose a
demonic child sex ring. Later, Edward Welch entered Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in
Washington, DC wielding an assault rifle to "self-investigage" the story that
top Democrats were running a child sex ring out of the basement. The pizza
place, it turns out, doesnt have a basement, which the mainstream media
jumped on to discredit the whole child sex ring angle as being "fake news"
Never mind the facts, but since one detail (no
basement) was incorrect, mainstream media consumers were expected to ignore the
entire "Pizzagate" thing as being false. And, even if Comet Ping Pong is not
directly affiliated with Pizzagate, that fact does not negate the larger story
of a child sex ring. To learn more or to participate in the open source

Pentagon Propaganda Machine
The Pentagon has used the corporate media as a propaganda
delivery system since at least the late 1990s. The U.S. Army’s 4th
Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg works in the news division
Operation Mockingbird has dominated corporate media since
An Associated Press investigation found that over the past five
years, the money the military spends on winning hearts and minds at home and
abroad, what it calls "the human terrain", has grown by 63 percent, to at least
$4.7 billion this year, according to Department of Defense budgets and other
documents. In 2009, the Pentagon will employ 27,000 people just for
recruitment, advertising and public relations which makes it bigger in size,
money and power than many media companies.
The current emphasis on
propaganda operations started with former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. In
2002, Rumsfeld established the Office of Strategic Influence that brought
together public affairs and psychological operations. Congress demanded that
the office be shut down. Rumsfeld responded in a speech he delivered on Nov.
18, 2002, "There's the name. You can have the name, but I'm gonna keep doing
every single thing that needs to be done and I have." In 2003, Rumsfeld issued
a secret Information Operations Roadmap setting out a plan for public affairs
and psychological operations to work together. It noted that with a global
media, the military should expect and accept that psychological operations will
reach the U.S. public.
Out of its
Joint Hometown News
Service located on an abondoned Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas,
Pentagon staff writers pump out thousands of press releases, television
releases and radio interviews, all provided free to news organizations around
the world. The stories go out with authors' names but not their titles, and do
not mention Hometown News anywhere.
Despite a supposed prohibition on
propaganda, spending on public affairs stories designed to influence the
American public has more than doubled since 2003. A recent inspector general
audit concluded that a public affairs program called "America Supports You" was
conducted "in a questionable and unregulated manner" with funds meant for the
military's Stars and Stripes newspaper.
One of the fastest-growing
parts of the military media is "psychological operations," where spending has
also doubled since 2003. Psychological operations are generally aimed at
foreign audiences, not intended for American consumption. However, when an
American TV anchor asked Gen. David Petraeus about the mood in Iraq, the
general held up a glossy photo of the Iraqi national soccer team to show the
country united in victory. In fact, it was U.S. psychological operations that
had quietly distributed tens of thousands of the soccer posters in July 2007 to
encourage Iraqi nationalism.
Rear Adm. Gregory Smith, director of
strategic communications for the U.S. Central Command, says psychological
operations must be secret to be effective. He says that in the 21st century, it
is probably not possible to win the information battle with insurgents without
exposing American citizens to secret U.S. propaganda.

placement within TV shows themselves.
