What is Behind the Bias in Mainstream News Coverage?

  • RT America Published on Oct 22, 2018
    The state of today’s corporate media in the United States is not what it used to be. Why aren’t many of the stories you need to know about being covered?

For analysis RT America’s Rick Sanchez is joined by Chris Chambers, journalism professor at Georgetown University.

MSM Ignores Saudi Wahhabism

  • RT America Published on Oct 19, 2018
    Anya Parampil reports on comments from President Trump, promising “severe” consequences against Saudi Arabia if the Kingdom is found to have murdered missing writer Jamal Khashoggi. Anya then explains what the mainstream media has missed in its coverage of his case and the special relationship which exists between the US and Saudi, specifically how US geo-strategic interests benefit from Saudi’s exportation of Wahhabism, an ultraconservative interpretation of Islam. Hassan el-Tayyib, Policy Director for Chicago Area Peace Action, joins In Question to discuss whether or not this moment will result in a true reevaluation of the US-Saudi partnership.

  • The House of Saud is, of course, Jewish. They pretend to be anti Jew/Israel to deceive their sheeple so as to continue governing. But they are Jews and the history is pretty well documented ! More proofs below article!
  • I have always wondered why the Saudi Arabia ruling class (House of Saud)never really supported the Palestinian cause. They pay lip service but never really put into action what they say. They are clearly pro-American and some would say in cahoots with Zionist Israel. Here are some possible answers.

    Is the Saudi Royal Family Jewish?
    ‘In the 1960’s the “Sawt Al Arab” Broadcasting Station in Cairo, Egypt, and the Yemen Broadcasting Station in Sana’a confirmed the Jewish Ancestry of the Saudi Family.

    King Faisal Al-Saud at that time could not deny his family’s kindred with the Jews when he declared to the Washington Post on Sept. 17, 1969 stating: “We, The Saudi family, are cousins of the Jews: we entirely disagree with any Arab or Muslem Authority which shows any antagonism to the Jews; but we must live together with them in peace. Our country (Arabia) is the Fountain head from where the first Jew sprang, and his descendants spread out all over the world.” That was the declaration of King Faisal AL-Saud Bin Abdul Aziz! ‘
  • Why is there the genealogy/descendents of Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Rahman ibn Faisal Al Saud in the Jewish Virtual Library? Draw your own conclusions!
  • 2002 Iraqi Intel Reported Wahhabis Are of Jewish Origin ! (emphasis mine)
    by David Livingstone,
    The U.S. Department of Defense has released translations of a number of Iraqi intelligence documents dating from Saddam’s rule. One, a General Military Intelligence Directorate report from September 2002, entitled “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots”, shows the Iraqi government was aware of the nefarious purposes of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, often known as Salafis, in serving Western interests to undermine Islam.

    The report relies heavily on the Memoirs of Mr. Hempher, which describe in detail how a British spy to the Middle East, in the middle of the eighteenth century, made contact with Adbul Wahhab, to create a subversive version of Islam, the notorious sect of Wahhabism, which became the founding cult of the Saudi regime. The movement was temporarily suppressed by the Ottomam armies in the middle of the nineteenth century. But with the assistance of the British, the Wahhabis and their Saudi sponsors returned to power and founded their own state in 1932. Since then, the Saudis have collaborated closely with the Americans, to whom they owe their tremendous oil wealth, in funding various Islamic fundamentalist organizations and other American covert operations, particularly the “jihad” in Afghanistan. But the Saudis simulatenously use the immense wealth at their dispossal to disseminate this disruptive brand of Islam to various parts of the world, categorized by some of the largest propaganda campaign in history.

    Many who defend Wahhabism as a legitimate reform movement of Islam have tried to dismiss the Memoirs as a spurious fabrication. These include Bernard Haykel, Professor in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University, who, without providing any evidence, presumes the Memoirs to have been created by Ayyub Sabri Pasha.

    However, while the Memoirs only emerged in the 1970s, Pasha wrote his version of the story already in 1888. Ayyub Sabri Pasha was a well-known Ottoman writer and Turkish naval admiral, who served the Ottoman army in the Arabian Pensinsula, writing several works about the region and it’s history. Including The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism, where he recounts Abdul Wahhab’s association and plotting with Hempher.

    In addition to that revealed in the Hempher Memoirs, the Iraqi intelligence report also makes known some surprising claims, derived from works circulated in Arabic which have not been translated into English. As the report recounts, both Abdul Wahhab, and his sponsor, ibn Saud, who founded the Saudi dynasty, were of Jewish origin.

    For example, D. Mustafa Turan wrote, in The Donmeh Jews, that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a descendant of a family of Donmeh Jews from Turkey. The Donmeh were descendants of followers of the infamous false-messiah of Judaism, Shabbetai Zevi, who shocked the Jewish world in 1666 by converting to Islam. Viewing it as a sacred mystery, Zevi’s followers imitated his conversion to Islam, though secretly keeping to their Kabbalistic doctrines. In Europe, the Shabbeteans were eventually led a century later by Jacob Frank, claiming to be a reincarnation of Zevi. And, according to Rabbi Antelman in To Eliminate the Opiate, to them belonged the Rothschilds who had a hand in the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati. The Donmeh community of Turkey were concentrated in the city of Salonika, which became a hotbed of Masonic activity, and from which the Young Turk movement evolved, which aided in the collapse of the Muslim empire of the Ottoman Turks. There is evidence that Ataturk himself, the founder of the modern Turkish state, was of Donmeh origin as well.

    Turan maintains that Abdul Wahhab’s grandfather, Sulayman was actually Shulman, having belonged to the Jewish community of Bursa in Turkey. From there he settled in Damascus, where he feigned Islam, but was apparently expelled for practicing sorcery. He then fled to Egypt and he again faced condemnation, so made his way he to the Hijaz, where he got married and fathered Abdul Wahhab. According to the report, the same is claimed in The Donmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahabis, Rifat Salim Kabar.

    The notion of the Saudi family being of Jewish heritage has been published by Mohammad Sakher, who, it is claimed, was ordered killed by the regime for his revelations. The report relates a similar account, but from different sources. According The Wahabi Movement/The Truth and Roots, by Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim Al-Shammari, for example, ibn Saud is actually descended from Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Mushi, a Jewish merchant from Basra. Apparently, when he was approached by members from the Arabian tribe of Aniza, then claimed to be one of them, and traveled with them to Najd and his name became Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa.

    Additionally, Abdul Wahhab was descended from Wahib Al-Tamimi, so, as reported by al Said Nasir, in The History of the Saud Family, the Saudi ambassador in Cairo, Abdullah bin Ibrahim al Mufaddal, paid Muhammad Al-Tamimi thirty five thousand Jinee in the year 1943, to forge a family tree of the Saudi family and that of Abdul Wahhab, and merge them into one, claiming their origin from the Prophet Mohammed.

    While it would be difficult to independantly authenticate these claims, they are interesting in light of the role that the state of Saudi Arabia has and continues to play with regards to supporting and advancing Western power in the Middle East and elsewhere. Especially astounding is the very dubious and virulent form of Islam, that Wahhabism and Salafism represent, which is currently wrecking havoc on Islamic traditions, and dividing the Muslim community in petty squabbles over trivial details, allowing the War on Islam to proceed effectively unchecked.
  • I have highlighted many times that modern Ashkenazi Khazarian Jews (about 90+% of modern Jewry) are not semitic and not the biological descendents of the 12 tribes of Israel. They are counterfeits!

Study Finds MSM’s Trump Coverage Just Hit 92% Negative Ahead of Midterms

  • Study Finds MSM’s Trump Coverage Just Hit 92% Negative Ahead of Midterms
    by Rich Noyes,
    “Once again, the ongoing Russia investigation received more evening news coverage (342 minutes) than any other individual topic”

    In four weeks, Americans go to the polls for the midterm elections that the news media are casting as a referendum on the Trump presidency. Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a President in TV news history – 92 percent negative, vs. just eight percent positive. 

    For this report, MRC analysts reviewed all 1,007 evening news stories (1,960 minutes of airtime) about the Trump administration on ABC, CBS and NBC from June 1 to September 30, tallying the coverage of each topic and all evaluative comments made by anchors, reporters and non-partisan sources (such as voters or experts). 

    The results show that, over the past four months, nearly two-thirds of evening news coverage of the Trump presidency has been focused on just five main topics: the Russia investigation; immigration policy; the Kavanaugh nomination; North Korea diplomacy; and U.S. relations with Russia. The networks’ coverage of all of these topics has been highly negative, while bright spots for the administration such as the booming economy received extremely little coverage (less than one percent of the four-month total). Details: 

    Once again, the ongoing Russia investigation received more evening news coverage (342 minutes) than any other individual topic. This does not include the 86 minutes spent on the Michael Cohen investigation and guilty plea, except for a few minutes talking about the possibility that Cohen would cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller. 

    Since the beginning of the Trump administration, the three networks have spent 1,975 minutes – nearly 33 hours – on the Russia investigation, or nearly 18 percent of all of their coverage of the Trump presidency.
     As we have previously reported, virtually all of that coverage has been negative, while almost none of it has focused on any of the controversies involving Mueller or his investigative team.

Study Shows 2/3 of Americans Are Not as Polarized as the Media Wants You to Think

  • RT America Published on Oct 17, 2018
    A recent study called “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape” shows that about 2/3 of Americans have views far outside what the media promotes as our “national conversation.” They polled 8,000 Americans about issues like immigration, white privilege, sexual harassment, and a bunch of other stuff that the media focuses on these days, and spent about a year on the research, and they found that about 2/3 of Americans are what they call, the ‘exhausted majority.’ As in, most people feel just like you when they see what the media is focusing on. Exhausted from the utter crap.

Pages Purged by Facebook Were on Blacklist Promoted by Washington Post

  • Pages Purged by Facebook Were on Blacklist Promoted by Washington Post
    by Andre Damon,
    Media outlets removed by Facebook on Thursday, in a massive purge of 800 accounts and pages, had previously been targeted in a blacklist of oppositional sites promoted by the Washington Post in November 2016.

    The organizations censored by Facebook include The Anti-Media, with 2.1 million followers, The Free Thought Project, with 3.1 million followers, and Counter Current News, with 500,000 followers. All three of these groups had been on the blacklist.

    In November 2016, the Washington Post published a puff-piece on a shadowy and up to then largely unknown organization called PropOrNot, which had compiled a list of organizations it claimed were part of a “sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign.”

    The Post said the report “identifies more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season, with combined audiences of at least 15 million Americans.”

    The publication of the blacklist drew widespread media condemnation, including from journalists Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, forcing the Post to publish a partial retraction. The newspaper declared that it “does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet.”

    While the individuals behind PropOrNot have not identified themselves, the Washington Post said the group was a “collection of researchers with foreign policy, military and technology backgrounds.”

    PropOrNot, which remains active on Twitter, publicly gloated about Facebook’s removal of the pages on Thursday. “Russian propaganda is VERY VERY MAD about their various front outlets & fellow travellers getting suspended by @Facebook &/or @Twitter,” it wrote. The tweet tagged The Anti Media and The Free Thought Project, and included a Russian flag emoji next to an emoji depicting feces.

Propaganda: World War 3 — Fears Spike of Iran Planning TERROR Attacks Across Europe After Paris Plot

  • Western propaganda. Probably to prepare the sheeple for false flag attacks to ignite the Satanic WW3. It is the western Illluminist governments and their allies (Israel …) which is behind the global terrorism wave.
  • World War 3: Fears spike of Iran planning TERROR attacks across Europe after Paris plot
    FEARS are growing Iran could be plotting a wave of terror attacks across Europe and North America after a plot to bomb a massive Iranian opposition rally was foiled, it has been claimed.

    In July an Iranian diplomat and a couple of Iranian descent were arrested in Germany and Belgium respectively on suspicion of plotting to bomb an Iranian dissidents rally in Paris. The supposed diplomat, Vienna based Assadollah Assadi, had provided the couple with explosives and a detonator.

    The targeted rally was organised by the Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK) group which seeks to overthrow the Iranian government and was attended by thousands, including President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani. A senior German official said: “There are clear indications for calling this a case of state terrorism.”

‘How is This Not Racist?’: CNN’s Don Lemon Shouts Down Guest, Laughs at ‘Token Negro’ Comment

  • ‘How is This Not Racist?’: CNN’s Don Lemon Shouts Down Guest, Laughs at ‘Token Negro’ Comment
    CNN anchor Don Lemon is in hot water after telling a contributor to “shut up” in a debate on anti-Trump violence and laughing along with another guest who called Trump-supporting rapper Kanye West a “token Negro.”

    Speaking on ‘CNN Tonight’ on Tuesday with network contributor and Daily Beast columnist Matt Lewis, Lemon became angry when Lewis suggested that the protesters that chased Senator Ted Cruz out of a restaurant two weeks ago and harassed Trump administration officials throughout the summer were a “mob.”

    The Tea Party – a fringe Republican group – “didn’t hound people out of restaurants” Lewis argued. Lemon responded that protesters have the right to harass officials they don’t like in restaurants and exercise their First Amendment rights wherever they want, before losing his patience when Lewis wouldn’t back down on his definition of a “mob.”

Facebook Purges Over 800 Accounts With Millions Of Followers; Prominent Conservatives Vanish

  • Facebook Purges Over 800 Accounts With Millions Of Followers; Prominent Conservatives Vanish
    by Tyler Durden,
    Just in time for midterms, Facebook has removed 559 pages and 251 accounts they claim have been spreading misinformation and spam. Several of the pages however – some with millions of followers, were pro-Trump conservatives who had spent years cultivating their followings. 

    Our @facebook page with over 2.1 million followers has been unpublished, along with over 800 other pages and accounts. The purge of alt-media is upon us. 
    — Anti-Media (@AntiMedia) October 11, 2018 

    Facebook claims that “domestic actors” have been creating “fake pages and accounts to attract people with shocking political news,” reports Bloomberg.

    “The people behind the activity also post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups, often hundreds of times in a short period, to drum up traffic for their websites,” Facebook said in a Thursday blog post. “And they often use their fake accounts to generate fake likes and shares. This artificially inflates engagement for their inauthentic pages and the posts they share, misleading people about their popularity and improving their ranking in news feed.”

    Some pages Facebook removed had large followings of real and fake accounts. Nation in Distress, a conservative meme page, was followed by more than 3 million people, according to the Internet Archive, which stores historical versions of websites and other online content. –Bloomberg
