SEE UPDATE X1 BELOW
There is ONE reason millions upon millions of American’s continue to turn off ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC and turning on Russia Today, Press TV, Al Jazeera, the Corbett Report and Prison Planet to name a few alternative radio/video sites.
That reason is simple – American’s and people across the globe wish to know the truth. It’s that simple.
Those of us who have turned to the internet to learn what the hell is going on have learned time and again that government’s lie…a lot! This is especially true here in America. This lying has apparently been going on for at least a half a century if not longer; the talking heads of yore just lied better than the current ones do. Nonetheless, lies, lies, lies.
The game is up – the empire building American leadership has been “covertly” doing in our name while maiming our military personnel and sending us in to debt slaves to pay for it all is being exposed to the light of day, and we’re not taking to kindly to it.
Secretary Hillary Clinton seems to think her agency needs more cashola to counter this truth movement b/c as she put’s it “we’re losing the propaganda information war with foreign media”. Big clue Secretary Clinton, America has LOST the information war. Gone! Over! Toast! It has been replaced with news outlets that tell us American’s what our country is really doing – building her empire when during another time in our history, we went to War to stop a man from doing such a thing – of which few American’s want or desire. Oh, and those few who do are the one’s feeding at the trough of the oligarch’s who want to dominate the world aka the New World Order.
PS – Glenn, you are one of the biggest lamestream media propagandists on the payroll. Give it up.
UPDATE X1 – From Raw Story –
Exclusive: I ‘wined and dined’ NYT and WSJ for favorable coverage, health insurance whistleblower says
by Brad Jacobson
“It was so easy for me to get my way”
A former health insurance insider turned whistleblower says that he was not only surprised at how “easy” it was to manipulate members of the news media over the years, but also reveals that he routinely “wined and dined” reporters from major news outlets – including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal – in return for favorable coverage.
In his new book Deadly Spin, Wendell Potter describes how his chief function as a senior public relations officer at two of the largest for-profit health insurance companies in the United States – Humana and Cigna – was to “perpetuate myths that had no other purpose but to sustain those companies’ extraordinary high profitability.”
But in an extended interview with Raw Story last week, Potter went further, revealing that he lunched with reporters at major media outlets for years – including journalists at the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal – as well as those from local and regional media, in most cases picking up the tab, which he says directly resulted in positive coverage of the companies he represented.
