Fake TV News: Corporate Media is Propaganda

With a new story from Stars and Stripes out today (see link below)  about media manipulation, it seems like as good a time as any to review some examples of corporate media dishonesty:

Swine Flu Government Propaganda From the 1970’s

Sign me up for a Swine flu shot right now!!!

Granted, conditions are not exactly the same today, but take a look at what happened with the Swine flu outbreak in 1976:

Any flu able to reach that many people so fast was capable of becoming another worldwide plague, the doctors warned, raising these questions:

Does America mobilize for mass inoculations in time to have everybody ready for the next flu season? Or should the country wait to see if the new virus would, as they often do, get stronger to hit harder in the second year?

Thus was born what would become known to some medical historians as a fiasco and to others as perhaps the finest hour of America’s public health bureaucracy.

Only young Lewis died from the swine flu itself in 1976. But as the critics are quick to point out, hundreds of Americans were killed or seriously injured by the inoculation the government gave them to stave off the virus.

You Can Help Detect and Prevent “Terrorism”

The odds of someone winning big in the lottery and being struck dead by lightning in the same day are about as high as the odds of being killed by a terrorist.

But no one is allowed to doubt that the streets are just crawling with “terrorists”, so we get more laughable absurdity from the state that brought you the MIAC report:

Glorifying and Worshipping the Police State

Ah, yes. Homeland Security U.S.A. is the latest in mind-numbing “reality” television and it looks to be little more than propaganda for the state. Sit back, relax, and be acclimated to the incremental loss of your liberties in the comfort of your own home!

Just watch — all of these people in uniform are so nice and good and official looking! There is nothing to fear, we should give them more power to “do their jobs”. Pay no attention to the 20,000+ troops being stationed in America or the warrantless checkpoints because it’s all “for your safety” of course. Everything changed a few years ago (don’t you know?) — posse comitatus and the Bill of Rights are obsolete these days.

“Those who would give up liberty for security deserve neither…”

The Truth About the Georgia-Russia Conflict

Georgia-Russia conflict basics: Georgia invades South Ossetia and starts killing innocent civilians who want to break away from Georgia and gain independence. Russia steps in to stop it. Russia (who is not without fault by any means historically, but actually is mostly on the good side this time) gets blamed for being the aggressor. U.S. neocons and other various warmongers get to have a field day talking about military actions against Russia, preemptive strikes, and a new cold war.

Here is a BBC broadcast that ran just before Russia intervened in Georgia’s attacks on South Ossetia. It’s interesting that they report the truth here, but within a day or two changed their coverage to fall in line with the Western medias propaganda storyline:

Remember: When Georgia broke from the Soviets the U.S. supported them in their quest for independence. If Georgia has a right to independence (as they do) so does South Ossetia. I’m sure the fact that Georgia has lots of troops involved in the U.S. “efforts” in Iraq (in other words, Georgia’s troops are being trained by the U.S. so they can go back to Georgia — or other places — and carry out the desires of the U.S. government) has nothing to do with the U.S. supporting Georgia even as they commit war crimes against the South Ossetians.  How is it that the U.S. was OK with Georgia having their independence, but if the South Ossetians attempt to gain it (most South Ossetians have closer ties to Russia than to Georgia) they deserve to be attacked? Hmm, the U.S. does have special forces inside of Georgia (along with some Israelis) training the Georgian military, so Georgia must be in the right! After all, the U.S. side never does anything bad! We don’t invade countries that haven’t attacked us. Oh, wait… never mind.

Who says that Socialist and Communist countries are the worst offenders when it comes to corruption and propaganda? The level of hypocrisy and propagandistic lying in the Western media has reached new lows during the last week in their reporting on the conflict in Georgia.

Watch as “Shep” has to take a very convenient commercial break (were his producers/the Fox censors buzzing in his ear just before he cut the lady off?). How frustrating it must be for those people closest to the events in Georgia — who know the truth of the situation — to hear it being so grossly distorted and misrepresented in the Western media:

Here is an update on the 12 year old girl and her aunt after their appearance on Fox:

In this video we see CNN using footage of the attacking Georgian military to demonize Russia by claiming it is actually Russia that is depicted in the footage:

Conclusion: Georgia is now a U.S.-puppet state rather than a Soviet one. The Georgian aggression was undoubtedly planned in advance as part of long-term Western strategy, and they intentionally used the start of the Olympic Games as cover.

Good thing the U.S. just happened to get a missile defense system set up in Poland recently. Good thing they are also setting up related facilities in the Czech Republic, and in other strategic locations surrounding Russia. Good thing too the U.S. came out last year openly admitting that a nuclear first strike (via NATO) against Russia is now on the table as an option. Yeah, good thing.

CO2, “Devil Gas”or Life Sustaining Necessity?

Remember the “Weekly Reader” from your days in grade school? Saw this article today, looks like more twisted, manipulative RAND corporation propaganda for the young minds to absorb:

Feeling The Heat: A New Report Says Humans Are the Likely Cause of
Climate Change
Weekly Reader

The heat is on! And people are to blame. That’s what a group of more than 2,500 scientists from 113 countries recently agreed. A report from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that human activities are “very likely” the cause of global warming, or the gradual rise in Earth’s average temperature.

The report is “sort of a report card on everything we’ve learned about climate change,” explains Robert Lempert, senior scientist at the RAND Corporation (a nonprofit research and analysis institution).

…Turning Down the Heat
Though the report’s findings are bleak, it gives some scientists hope that people can lessen the effects of global warming. “If you see the extent to which human activities are influencing the climate system, the options for [reducing] greenhouse gas emissions appear in a different light, because you can see what the costs of inaction are,” said IPCC chairman Dr. Rajendra Pachauri.

Weekly Reader then links to:
EPA’s “kids site” —shows a video with bulldozers cutting down trees and causing global warming, this is ironic considering that now some people want to cut down trees to stop global warming, and also considering that trees are being wiped out due to the ethanol craze.
