The Role of the 😈 Media 🙈🙉🙊: Act II — Operation Mockingbird

Part 22 of "Why Do Good People Become Silent—Or 🦍 Worse—About 9/11?"

🦅 Frances Shure ✨ resumes her series for Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth that addresses a defining issue of our time: "Why Do Good People Become Silent — or Worse — About 9/11?" Each installment of this series has been a synthesis of academic research and clinical observations on the subject. Shure writes:

"Since the CIA has long played such a unique role in manipulating the media both in the U.S. and abroad, I will now, in this installment, give this muscular body composed of national security intelligence operatives the special attention it warrants. In so doing, I will demonstrate the clear overlap that exists between the CIA (part of the powerful) and the mainstream media’s   executives and  journalists (part of the structure)."

"Moses" Gets a Top Secret Security Clearance 😈





The 👹 CIA has been influencing movie scripts since the 1940s and 1950s. But it remained an invisible partner and prevented any mention of itself in film and TV until the 1959 production of Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller, “North by Northwest.” 57

The film studio (video below) is a "parody . . . sort of. Most people still don't even know this place existed." — Truthstream Media


Five 😇 People You Wouldn't Believe worked for the CIA



Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Gary Webb apparently crossed a line that the CIA could not tolerate with his 1996 “Dark Alliance” series on CIA drug-running. The majority of the media sided with the CIA in ruining Webb’s reputation as well as that of the San Jose Mercury News, which eventually succumbed to pressure to retract the series. Webb lost his life in the process. The official jury is still out on whether he committed suicide or was “suicided” by the CIA — with two gunshots to the head.129 Either way, Webb’s story has had a chilling effect on any and all journalists and editors inclined to step out of line. 130

Noam Chomsky's Manufacturing Consent revisited | The Listening Post
121,902 views•Dec 22, 2018

There is an exquisite and oft-quoted moment in an interview between BBC journalist Andrew Marr and Noam Chomsky in which Marr asks: "How can you know that I'm self-censoring?".

"I'm not saying you're self censoring. I'm sure you believe everything you're saying. But what I'm saying is that if you believed something different, you wouldn't be sitting where you're sitting."

Wry as ever, Chomsky exposed the slightly delusional pretensions of the journalistic establishment - and not far behind, the complicities of the media industry with political power.

Harsh? Perhaps. True? All too often.

For many of us who work at The Listening Post, Chomsky's ideas on the media in Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media have provided us with a guide, full of cautionary tales and ideas that are still controversial to this day.

The book was published in 1988 - a year before the end of the Cold War when it was announced that western liberal democracy had triumphed, heralding the end of ideology, authoritarianism, and propaganda.

In the past 30 years, we have seen the mass communications industry multiply, providing an illusion of choice, echoing the rhetorics of freedom - of press, of expression - but not necessarily yielding the pluralism liberal democracies had promised.

In that way, the book continues to resonate.

But like all revered texts, Manufacturing Consent also calls upon us as active readers, journalists, citizens to interrogate its premises. Does the book's denunciatory tone risk overstate the power of the media establishment? Does it underestimate the critical faculties of the public? Is the media so homogenous an entity that power can be wielded top-down? Where are the lapses, the blind spots? Where do journalists find pockets of power that serve to disrupt?

We spoke to three journalists who have their careers being disruptive and asked them about the ideas that had influenced them in Chomsky and Herman's book: Matt Taibbi, whose reporting for Rolling Stone has provided one of the most critical accounts of US political history in recent years; Indian editor-in-chief Aman Sethi who questions the premises of Chomsky's book and Amira Hass, the Haaretz correspondent for the Occupied Territories.

The first thing we asked Hass was what she thought about Chomsky's statement: "the general population doesn't know what's happening, and it doesn't even know that it doesn't know".

"This is a very humanist and optimistic statement," she responded. "The belief that when people are informed they may act, things may change. In Hebrew, the words knowledge and awareness are all made of the same root. Yedda and Mudaoot. And so awareness is connected to Mudaoot in Hebrew. And this is how I started working in Gaza, aware that the Israeli public knows nothing about the occupation and what it means. But the people do not pick up this information. They have access to it but they choose not to access it."

Hass has been covering Palestine for the best part of 30 years - in that time, sources of information have multiplied, but public outrage?

"Today we have so much access to information in other ways that we are on a collision with the fact that people are not interested in what does not serve immediately their interest," she said, with resignation, "and this is a very sad realisation."

Aman Sethi put it like this:

"It's easy to say that people believe what they believe because their consent has been manufactured. But what if people know exactly what's going on and still believe what they believe, right? Then that's terrifying."

📢Resisting Brainwashing Propaganda from the NYT and DINOs (Democrats In Name Only)


😇 ;) Sheryl Gay Stolberg: Moderate 🎩 Democrats Fear Bernie Sanders Could Cost Them the House

Quote
As Bernie Sanders emerges as the leader in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, his rise is generating fears among centrist Democrats that the apparent leftward shift of their party could cost them not only a chance to retake the White House, but also their hold on the majority in the House of Representatives and their shot at winning the Senate.

The anxiety is particularly acute on Capitol Hill among a small but politically important group of freshman Democrats who helped their party win control of the House in 2018 by flipping Republican seats in districts that President Trump won in 2016. Now, they fear that having a self-declared democratic socialist at the top of the ticket could doom their re-election chances in November.

Members of the group of about three 😈🦖🐍 dozen — often called “👹 front-liners” or “🎩 majority-makers— have   toiled to carve out political identities distinct from their party’s progressive base, and most are already facing competitive re-election challenges from Republicans who bill them as radicals who have empowered a far-left agenda ::) in Congress.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/12/us/politics/democrats-fear-bernie-sanders.html

Agelbert NOTE: The DINOs, with help from THE NEW YORK TIMES, of course, are busy, busy, busy trying to SMEAR Senator Sanders with assorted disingenuous pearl clutching and hand wringing about how his candidacy would "ensure a Trump win" (see below). It's total bullshit, but expect to see a veritable tsunami of this breathtaking level of totally false defamatory lies about Senator Sanders before the election. This propaganda isn't just false; it's Orwellian! IOW the truth is the opposite of what they are spewing.     



What those profit over people and planet, corrupt status quo worshipping DINO bastards won't tell you is that THEY are the ones who will vote for Trump if Sanders is the Democratic Candidtate for POTUS.

We need DINOs like a dog needs ticks!

Why are More Democrats Breaking Tradition and Boycotting 👹 AIPAC?
February 27, 2020


The pro-Israel group is attacking Bernie Sanders both for his support for Palestinians and for not attending the yearly conference, but he's not the only person calling out AIPAC's right-wing agenda.
