Just an inspired rant, AG.

BTW, just because of the post above, I spent the morning coming up to speed on Operation Mockingbird. I saw no indication from anything I have read that it was ever ended.

Murrow> Jack Anderson? Really?

Apparently there were cold war battlefields we didn't even know about.

Glad you liked my rant.  ;D
As to Operation Mockingbird, yeah, they've got that one down to a fine art. I think they are so jaded by their success that they are unaware of the nearly total laughing stock the MIC mouthpieces are to the up and coming generation. Remember that the GOAL of manufacturing consent is to manipulate the behavior of the masses so they will be conditioned to BELIEVE anything you say. That is why they are so assiduous about wanting to know about our every activity (as a check on the behavior modification success of the propaganda mill). They THINK it is working but IT ISN'T WORKING.

These  goons are SO impressed by their sophisticated data mining techniques that they forget that people just don't care much about privacy like they used to. People are posting their life histories out there with abandon and the goons probably think it is a gold mine of data.              

Well, they don't understand the Heisenberg uncertainty principle as applied to human relations. Here's the deal, Surly. If I KNOW you are watching my every move and I ALSO KNOW that I cannot avoid you watching my every move because you control the technology I use to be more efficient about my daily activities, as long as I am an average Joe, after a while I cease to care.

I am the OBSERVED object. As the Heisenberg uncertainty principle states, once the object is OBSERVED, it's behavior changes. Hence the OBSERVER will never truly understand what makes the OBSERVED TICK (the goal of all observer goons is therefore frustrated).

To the average Joe, it's like going to the bathroom or not. You undress in the bathroom and you wear clothes outside. Well, the internet is now a giant bathroom where a thousand cameras are on us and we all get to bask in the joys of exhibitionist behavior (this drives the goons batty!  ;D).

The average Joe/Jane has also figured out that the MIC mouthpieces are bullshit factories for the 1%. That too drives the goons crazy because the whole "credible source" thing they have always relied on to con the rubes has been flipped on its head. What's more the average Joe/Jane, now living in the functional equivalent of a red light district with 30 con artists arrayed along his path continuously, is forced to adopt improved critical thinking skills or lose his shirt and have his identity stolen too! We are ALL becoming STREET SMART to the MIC media's dismay.

The average Joe/Jane is now like the bacteria that have adapted (NOT "EVOLVED"! LOL!) to all those antibiotics and become superbugs! We are a fricking VIRUS! 

Back to Mocking the Mocking Bird Mechanism. ;D

There's a dude that had about nine wives and died recently. This guy was king of the intelligence agencies  hill. He stayed out of the news but was a key figure in Operation Mocking Bird from the START. He sold his media outlets to Murdoch in 1985! Nice HAND OFF to the next "king", eh?  ;)

Check John W. Kluge out for a fun story.

Here's the boilerplate PUFF PIECE:

John Kluge ranked as one of the least known but most powerful moguls in the modern television industry in the United States as Chairman of the Board for Metromedia International Group.

Born in Chemnitz, Germany, in 1914 John Kluge served in U.S. Army intelligence, 1941-45 after Immigrating to U.S. in 1922. Kluge proved a group of independent TV stations could make millions of dollars. His Metromedia, Inc. pioneered independent stations operations through the 1960s and 1970s. In the mid-1980s Rupert Murdoch offered Kluge nearly $2 billion for the Metromedia stations, which then served as the basis for Murdoch's FOX television network. This deal made Kluge one the richest persons in the United States.

It was the food business that led Kluge to television. In 1951 he invested in a Baltimore, Maryland food brokerage enterprise, increased sales dramatically, sold his majority stake in the mid-1950s, and began to look for another industry that was growing. He found television. In 1956 Kluge was too late to enter network television, but saw possibilities with independent TV stations. He assembled an investment group and purchased the former DuMont stations. He ran Metromedia on a tight budget, saving rent, for example, by headquartering the company across the Hudson River from New York City, in Secaucus, New Jersey. He seized upon the programming strategy of simply re-running old network situation comedies and low budget movies. And Metromedia made millions with relatively small audiences, because costs of operation were so low.

Under his stewardship, Metromedia grew into the largest independent television business in the United States. Thereafter Kluge purchased assorted businesses to add to his Metromedia empire. Over the years he acquired the Ice Capades, the Harlem Globetrotters, music publishing companies holding such titles as Fiddler on the Roof, Zorba the Greek, and Cabaret, television production and syndication units, Playbill magazine, and a highly profitable direct mail advertising division. But he did make mistakes. One disastrous misstep was Kluge's 1960s purchase of the niche magazine Diplomat; another came with his proposal for a fourth TV network. Neither project succeeded, nor the failures cost Metromedia millions of dollars.

Kluge reached his greatest successes in television by buying the syndication rights to M*A*S*H. With this asset he finally gave rival network affiliates a contest for ratings in the early fringe time period. Not one to sit still, during the early 1980s Kluge cooked up a deal to take Metromedia private. In 1984, by structuring a $1.3 billion leveraged buyout on unusually favorable terms, Kluge ended owning three-quarters of the new company and pocketing $115 million in cash in the process. Now private and in full control, Kluge did not hesitate when Rupert Murdoch approached him with $2 billion to buy Metromedia's television stations.

Out of TV, Kluge attended to his other businesses. Under the Metromedia name, he began to manufacture paging devices and mobile telephones. In managing these telecommunication ventures, Kluge retraced the steps he took in his television career: buy a license in a major market at an affordable price, then wait as the market evolves, and finally cash in.

In 1995 the Actava Group Inc., Orion Pictures Corp., MCEG Sterling Inc. and Metromedia International Telecommunications Inc. signed an agreement to form a global communications entity to be named Metromedia International Group Inc. Kluge already owned a major stake in Hollywood's Orion Pictures. The new four-part alliance merged wireless cable and Hollywood production skills to sell all forms of mass communication to citizens in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics.

Kluge attended Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, and earned a B.A. in economics, Columbia University, 1937

John W. Kluge passed away on September 7, 2010, and is deeply missed by all at EWI.

I don't have the time. I wish you would do an expose on Kluge. I'll bet that guy was hooked up with Bush even before 1963, if you know what I mean. 

Don't worry. the CIA won't go after you. Kluge is dead and they can deny everything you say. The new method used today is to just get some bribed bullshit artist to write a book counteracting every factual and solid piece of history about some intelligence goon and make it an instant "New York Times Best Seller".  ::)

I would enjoy reading it and I'm certain you could come up with some fascinating anecdotes about Kluge. I mean, NINE WIVES?!!! This guy has some juicy stuff in his sordid past.

Just tracking down the "HEALTH PROBLEMS" of his ex-wives would be most illuminating and informative...
