Who is Behind “Fake News”? Mainstream Media Use Fake Videos and Images
- Who is Behind “Fake News”? Mainstream Media Use Fake Videos and Images
by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, http://www.globalresearch.ca/
The mainstream corporate media is desperate. They want to suppress independent and alternative online media, which it categorizes as “fake news”. Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites. The intent of this initiative is to smear honest reporting and Truth in Media.
Our analysis confirms that the mainstream media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. They are the unspoken architects of “Fake News”. One area of routine distortion is the use of fake videos and images by the mainstream media.
Four Notorious Cases of Media Distortion
These are four examples and there are many more. The manipulation of videos and images is routine. In some cases, these manipulations are revealed by readers, independent media and social media. In most cases they go undetected. And when they are revealed, the media will say “sorry” we apologize: they will then point to technical errors. “we got the wrong video”. What is important to emphasize is that these media distortions are invariably deliberate.
1. Coverage of CNN 2008 Riots in Tibet
Chinese Cops with khaki uniforms and Indian Style Moustaches
The video footage, which accompanied CNN’s John Vause’s report, had nothing to do with China. The police were not Chinese, but Indian cops in khaki uniforms from the Northeastern State of Himachal Pradesh, India. Viewers were led to believe that demonstrations inside China were peaceful and that people were being arrested by Chinese cops.
Chinese Cops in Khaki Uniforms?
1′.27-1′.44″ video footage of “Chinese cops” and demonstrators including Buddhist monks. Chinese cops are shown next to Tibetan monks. Are these Chinese Cops from Gansu Province or Lhasa, the Tibetan capital, as suggested by CNN’s John Vause’s Report?
- Alleged Chinese cops in khaki uniforms repressing Tibet demonstrators in China, CNN, March 14, 2008 1’38″, 1’40″ (images above) Their khaki uniforms with berets seem to bear the imprint of the British colonial period. Khaki colored uniforms were first introduced in the British cavalry in India in 1846. Khaki means “dust” in Hindi and Persian. Moreover, the cops with khaki uniforms and mustache do not look Chinese.
Look carefully. They are Indian cops.
The videotape shown on March 14, 2008 by CNN is not from China (Gansu Province or Lhasa, Tibet’s Capital). The video was taken in the State of Himachal Pradesh, India. The videotape of the Tibet protest movement in India was used in the CNN report on the Tibet protest movement within China. CNN got its countries screwed up.
- 2. BBC Coverage of the War on Libya, 2011
Green Square Tripoli. Libyans Celebrating “Liberation” and the Victory of Rebel forces over Gadaffi waving Indian Flags
Examine the footage: It’s not Green Square and it’s not the King Idris Flag (red, black green) of the Rebels. Its the Indian flag (orange, white and green) and the people at the rally are Indians.
Perhaps you did not even notice it. And if you did notice, ”it was probably a mistake”. Sloppy journalism at the BBC or outright Lies and Fabrications? Recognize the flags?
