Op-Ed by Catherine J. Frompovich
As a journalist who values facts rather than spin, I can’t help but question what I’ve witnessed happen to the profession over the last couple of decades—maybe longer—going back as far as the assassination of President John F Kennedy, even though I was not a journalist then.
Believe it or not, but I can remember editors telling me how to report stories, even to the point of saying, “Well, make it up!” which, of course, I would not do; ceremoniously refused as improper and unethical; and quit working for them. That’s why, quite frankly, I haven’t had newspapers delivered for ages. Spin is the news—not facts, in my opinion. And yet, I don’t seem to be lacking for being in touch with what’s going on. I consider myself a discerning journalist who values factual data, and my articles always include references, which others can check. In today’s propaganda milieu, saturation is critical to maintaining control over the masses with no opposing facts, science or views permitted!
The problem as I assess journalism and the current state of the media in the USA is corporate control exercised over journalists to the point of what I would consider criminal activity or collusion: deliberately misleading the populace to effectuate certain vested interest, centuries-old-plans to steer society into a one world New World Order gulag and transhumanism.
One of the key manipulative strategies, in my opinion, is the Hegelian Dialectic aka “problem-reaction-solution,” which British researcher/writer David Icke seems to have exposed effectively over the last twenty-five or so years. In the beginning, David’s work exposing the NWO agenda was considered fake news, and may still be by certain interests. However, David has done his homework extremely effectively, gaining more credibility for what he’s uncovered. Why do I bring David Icke, who many consider a controversial figure, into this discussion about the controlled media? Because he’s one example of how mainstream media ignores and disparages journalists who report what controllers don’t want reported or the populace to know.
There are many such individuals and websites today–thankfully, but one has to be careful in discerning their authenticity and agenda(s). Many trolls work for corporations who pay them to write ‘attack journalism’ or to become what’s known as “astroturfers,” which former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson lists on her website.
Sharyl, too, experienced a moment of truth when she was asked to revise or sanitize her story about vaccines. She took the high road and left CBS!
It’s not easy trying to separate the mountains of geopolitical and corporate BS spin, especially when it comes to issues affecting health, weather geoengineering, food genetic modification, vaccines, and cancer research.
However, there is the Media Research Center, whose motto is “Creating a Media Culture in America Where Truth and Liberty Flourish.” I’m pleased to tell my readers I am a member of MRC. Their August 2017 newsletter “The Watchdog” actually prompted this article because of the blaring headline on page 1: “Liberal Media Censor Leftist Threats To Harm OR Kill President Donald Trump.”
Two pages are devoted to how the mainstream, lamestream media does everything to promote the demise of President Trump, yet when it came to President Obama, MRC says this:
If President Barack Obama had been threatened in the same way as President Trump, the leftist press would have condemned it from the highest rooftops. But because the liberal media despise Trump, the real threats against him are censored. [The Watchdog, Pg. 2]
That two-page article written by L. Brent Bozell III, Founder and President of MRC, chronicles much of what has been going on within the media—now dubbed “liberal media”—as far back as 1995 “when Timothy McVeigh blew up a government building in 1995, the liberal press blamed ‘right-wing radio jocks’ naming Rush Limbaugh and Gordon Liddy, among others, for fostering the attack.” Actually, the Oklahoma City bombing may have been a false flag event, according to some independent investigators. Personally, I don’t support Limbaugh or Liddy comments; I’m a totally INDEPENDENT thinker! I have no political party affiliations; I believe in being an independent equal opportunity critic.
Therein is the controlled and manipulated difference between the liberal leftist media reporting ‘party line’ pap and actually doing old-time investigative journalism and reporting, a la the famous Watergate incident that brought down President Richard Nixon.
That kind of news reporting, in my candid opinion, can never be permitted again by the six corporations that own the U.S. media! Deconstructing the Corporatocracy we live in would not be permitted. It would go against the New World Order agenda of manipulation and control, which most of the population already has bought into unknowingly via their addiction to ‘smart’ technologies, in my opinion.
