As we inch further into the future and evermore closer to the next, and certainly last, world war, it seems proper to give pause and consider the significance of the fact that much of the information provided on world events is dreadfully compromised by corporate and political propagandists.
Mainstream media, with its exceptional reach, is able to mold the public’s first impression of any global event thereby establishing the ‘official story,’ the one that is repeated again and again during the first moments of a crisis. They capitalize on the immediate shock value of an act of extraordinary violence or unrest to mold public perception into conformity with a narrativethat will become the abiding fiction by which any further substantive investigation of the event must be measured against.
9/11 is perhaps the best example of this, as nearly 15 years afterwards, an incredible amount of information and research has become available to the public, at least enough to unseat the official version of events and inspire a deeper investigation, yet contrary reporting is still not taken seriously at all by mainline media outlets.
The news is all about artificially manipulating the context of stories. The thinner the context, the thinner the mind must become to accept it. If you want to visualize this, imagine a rectangular solid. The news covers the top surface. Therefore, the mind is trained to work in only two dimensions. Then it can’t fathom depth, and it certainly can’t appreciate the fact that the whole rectangular solid moves through time, the fourth dimension. – Jon Rappoport
Sometimes the media gets caught fabricating events and twisting reality. Here’s a disturbing look at some of the more recent examples of mainstream media news deceptions, staged events and psy-ops that have been exposed by the international independent press.
With BBC reporter Ian Pannell standing amidst a host of crisis victims while on the scene at a small rural hospital in Syria, a supposed incendiary bomb or napalm attack happened, and, as they were filming, a stream of wounded patients began pouring in. A doctor was interviewed on the scene, remarking that a napalm attack had occurred.
One month later as the NATO pressed for military intervention in Syria, the exact same footage was used in a new video report; however, the audio of a crisis doctors statement had been digitally altered.
“>Secretary of State Colin Powell’s speech at the UN justifying the 2003 invasion of Iraq?
In order to justify the second war on Iraq, Colin Powell showed up at the UN with enough supposed anthrax to kill everyone in the building.
There are other examples as well, including the use of crisis actors which are people who appear in press interviews and on the scenes in multiple public events. The amount of resources that go into creating false realities for the masses is an absurd misallocation of human effort, and an embarrassing assault on human intelligence.
Since the mainstream media is working in concert with the military industrial complex and corrupt governments to push the world over the brink and into all-out war, it’s up to individuals and independent researchers to counter the propaganda and free the minds of those who are ready to wake up.
