Liar, Liar! Mainstream Media Won’t Like This One

News is comprised of a few stories amplified across a vast network of media owned by a very few. And here's the proof

People back home ask me; “Why are you on Putin’s side?” Well, a simple browser function called a “screenshot” speaks volumes on that. I don’t like lies, and especially those that get people killed. What’s more I hate spoiled sports and unsportsmanlike conduct. Putin, he’s the best sportsman among our world’s leaders in my opinion, but most people already know this.

Concerning the news where you live, here’s that screenshot I mentioned. You’ll note that Google News presents the several hundred million users each day with just what the US State Department ordered, and not a lot more. Isn’t it interesting how Military Times fits nicely into the top spot in my browser?

This is what you see every day if you read news in America or the UK.

Russia’s staggered economy, Putin bent on an arms race, these and other rumors have now been fed to Americans for 18 months or more, and with scarcely a whimper of “foul” or of “hey wait a minute” from citizens. This is the scary part, and my colleagues and friends carry on, as if this does not matter. Well it does matter! If people will swallow this, then there is no hope for a free America. You know the rest of the story from the history books, when the masses are led astray continents burn.

For now though, let’s look at what Mr. Putin is really up to today, shall we? I mean since we are all so terrified and curious about his next move! About 6 hours ago Mr. Putin did hold a briefing session with the permanent members of his security council. In that meeting, though Yahoo News and the rest failed to notice, Putin quizzed Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the takeaway from his Paris meetings. Lavrov iterated on the consensus:

“On the whole, it was not useless because even despite certain wrangling during the discussion, the main outcome was the acknowledgement of the fact that there is no alternative to complete fulfilment of the Minsk Agreements.”

Nowhere in the news Americans read can one find anything but a form of propaganda craftsmanship that completely ignores many facts. Russia being “forced” into revamping her military by NATO expansion plans is just not in the public interest, evidently. The Associated Press does however blame Mr. Putin’s popularity rating (almost 90%) on state propaganda! Now there’s the pot calling the kettle black. Dissenters in Russia these days are as scarce as hen’s teeth, and everybody knows it. Except, that is, the people of the United States. Somehow though, I suspect they are learning.

Now comes the fun part of this report. Many of you probably wonder why alternative media outlets like Russia Insider, The Saker, and even Sputnik or RT complain so much about the mass media misinformation boom going on. Well here’s one big reason Americans get to play dumb over Putin and a lot more. The next time you have a minute copy and past the lead in paragraph of any major story into Google. The end result is useful, look below.

Google can be used to find duplicate content around the world. Notice how the paragraph from Military Times is used in over 8,000 news stories.

Fascinating huh? Now imagine 2o mainstream media outlets with slightly different lead ins or headlines etc. Plug in a smaller fish, but an important one. The Newsweek story captured below is indicative of just how easy it is for corporate media to control everything you see and hear in America. You read that correctly, I said “everything” you think you know.

News is comprised of a few stories amplified across a vast network of media owned by a very few.

Add in Reuters, BBC, whatever Rupert Murdoch owns, and you have a recipe for crowd control. Look at what happens when a Sky News story gets regurgitated.

Now everybody thinks the same.

Any questions? There should not be any. Comcast to Dreamworks and the rest of Hollywood, you’re owned mind and body by some powerful people who want war with Putin and Russia. You can argue the “war” part, but you cannot intelligently compare Russia’s news media to what 99 percent of Americans and Brits see all day every day.

Is Putin rearming Russia? He’d damn well better be. What kind of leader would not with NATO at the front door and “We the People” turned into mindless zombies for billionaire arms dealers?

And that is the only story you need for today, no bullshit.
