The hypocrites are NY Times, WaPo, InfoWars, Drudge, all of them that are more concerned with corporate well being than the news….
ALL MSM are concerned with the spread of the approved message….no matter which side of the aisle they reside……their only intention is to spread the propaganda of the day…..as handed down by government and corporate leaders…..then the American people help spread crap in the name of “the news”…….
Keep in mind the statement….”If it bleeds it leads”…..take Paris….recently the police foiled a terror attack, a massive one, but did you hear about it? Nope. Why? No blood flowed!
How do we know what is propaganda and what is not?
That is simple….a couple of years ago right here on IST I gave my readers all the information they need to determine what is what……few took my advice about printing them out and then check the news to see which category it falls into…..

I suggest it again…..that is unless you are just looking for crap that reinforces what you already want to believe…..then I cannot help a closed mind….
I read an interesting piece in Consortium News by Robert Parry…..
The U.S. news media flip-flops on whether international law is inviolate or can be brushed aside at America’s whim – and similarly whether killing civilians is justified or not depending on who’s doing the killing, says Robert Parry.
Over the past few decades, the U.S. mainstream media has failed the American people in a historic fashion by spinning false or misleading narratives on virtually every important global issue, continuing to this day to guide the nation into destructive and unnecessary conflicts.
To me, a major turning point came with the failure of the major news organizations to get anywhere near the bottom of the Iran-Contra scandal, including its origins in illicit contacts between Republicans and Iranians during the 1980 campaign and the Reagan administration’s collaboration with drug traffickers to support the Contra war in Nicaragua. (Instead, the major U.S. media disparaged reporting on these very real scandals.)

The hypocrisy does not end with political stuff……terrorism is another arena that the media is a bit problematic……their evening reports do nothing but feed the fear that they created in the minds of the American viewer…..
Mass media and terrorism have become ever more intertwined in a mutually beneficial relationship often described as ‘symbiotic.’ This column examines that dynamic and outlines the need for news organizations to balance the public’s right to know against the ability of militants to exploit news coverage to promote their beliefs.
On its side, the mass media capitalizes from the confusion and consternation caused by terrorist attacks to produce the kind of dramatic news that draws the attention of its viewers and readers.

I try to help my readers discern crap from facts……please feel free to check out this stuff….journalism is dead…..propaganda rules…..and we as a society accept lies over truth…..what does that say about us?
