Whoever Controls The Narrative Controls The World

  • Whoever Controls The Narrative Controls The World
    by caitlinjohnstone, https://steemit.com/@caitlinjohnstone
    MSNBC host Joy Reid still has a job. Despite blatantly lying about time-traveling hackers bearing responsibility for bigoted posts a decade ago in her then-barely-known blog, despite her reportedly sparking an FBI investigation on false pretenses, despite her colleagues at MSNBC being completely fed up with how the network is handling the controversy surrounding her, her career just keeps trundling forward like a bullet-riddled zombie.


    To be clear, I do not particularly care that Joy Reid has done any of these things. I write about war, nuclear escalations and the sociopathy of US government agencies which kill millions of people; I don’t care that Joy Reid is or was a homophobe, and I don’t care that she lied to cover it up. The war agendas that MSNBC itself promotes on a daily basis are infinitely worse than either of these things, and if that isn’t obvious to you it’s because military propaganda has caused you to compartmentalize yourself out of an intellectually honest understanding of what war is.

    What is interesting to me, however, is the fact that Reid’s bosses are protecting her career so adamantly. Both by refusing to fire her, and by steering the conversation into being about her controversial blog posts rather than the fact that she told a spectacular lie in an attempt to cover them up, Reid is being propped up despite this story constantly re-emerging and making new headlines with new embarrassing details, and despite her lack of any discernible talent or redeeming personal characteristics. This tells us something important about what is going on in the world.

Like Foxes Guarding the Henhouse: How Public Opinion is Manipulated on Wikipedia

  • Like Foxes Guarding the Henhouse: How Public Opinion is Manipulated on Wikipedia
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Independent German investigators Markus Fiedler and Dirk Pohlmann have told Sputnik Deutschland about some of the mysterious Wikipedia editors they say are responsible for ‘safeguarding’ mainstream viewpoints on the world’s largest and most influential free online encyclopedia.

    With Germans’ trust in the mass media on the decline, more and more people are turning to the internet for their news and information. However, here too, search engine inquiries are filtered, with Google often directing queries directly to Wikipedia, the free, multilingual online encyclopedia which anyone can theoretically edit.

    However, as independent bloggers Markus Fiedler and Dirk Pohlmann have found out, as important and valuable as Wikipedia is, its ‘freely editable’ model definitely doesn’t mean an absence of censorship and biased political activism.

    “If you’re a journalist preparing to interview someone, chances are you’ll look on Wikipedia to find out who this person is. If it’s written that they’re an anti-Semite and supporter of conspiracy theories, as is often the case with people who someone doesn’t happen to like, there probably won’t be much interest in interviewing them,” Pohlmann explained.

    “In other words, on Wikipedia one quite often finds a [political] coloring of this or that public person and whether they are believable or not. And this is a very effective tool,” he added.

Norman Finkelstein(Jew): The “Big Lie” about Gaza Is That The Palestinians Have Been the Aggressors

  • Thank you Dr. Finkelstein for speaking the truth.
  • Democracy Now! Published on Jan 19, 2018
    https://democracynow.org – Extended interview with scholar Norman Finkelstein, author of the new book, “Gaza: An Inquest into Its Martyrdom.” The book has just been published as Israel is facing a possible International Criminal Court war crimes probe over its 2014 assault on Gaza, which killed more than 2,100 Palestinians, including over 500 children.

Israel Setting The Stage To Attack Iran Over Phony Claims Of Iranian Missile Threats

  • Israel Setting The Stage To Attack Iran Over Phony Claims Of Iranian Missile Threats
    by Brandon Turbeville, https://www.activistpost.com/
    Over the past several days, Israel has been throwing its typical series of fits and tantrums both to its patron in Washington and to the “international community” that Iran may finally have the gall to defend itself. Of course, Iran’s possible actions are not presented as self-defense but as unjustified aggression and “hatred” of the settler state. Israel is typically declaring its right to “defend itself” but, in reality, that “defense” is  nothing more than another act of offense in a long line of offenses against Iran.

    Israeli media is now boosting up the idea that Iran is planning to launch missiles at Jerusalem as well as a coordinated attack against Israel with Hezbollah and “Shiites” in Syria as revenge for the numerous illegal attacks against Iran that Israel has undertaken in Syria over the last seven years.

    One need only take a look at a recent article published in the Jerusalem Post to see a sampling of what Israeli media and the Israeli government are attempting to get across in terms of laying the groundwork for a “pre-emptive” strike on Iran. The article reads,

US Deep State Blocking Trump’s Efforts to Establish Peace on Korean Peninsula: Analyst

  • US Deep State Blocking Trump’s Efforts to Establish Peace on Korean Peninsula: Analyst
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    The US Deep State is attempting to frustrate President Donald Trump’s efforts to establish peace on the Korean peninsula, says E. Michael Jones, an American political analyst in Indiana.

    Jones, a writer, former professor, media commentator and the current editor of the Culture Wars magazine, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Saturday.

    On Friday, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that President Trump had not asked the Pentagon for options to reduce American forces deployed to South Korea. John Bolton’s statement came a day after after The New York Times reported that the US president was seeking options to curb the number of American troops stationed in South Korea.

    The New York Times story is utter nonsense. The President has not asked the Pentagon to provide options for reducing American forces stationed in South Korea,” Bolton said.

    Commenting to Press TV Jones said, “This sounds like a replay of what has just happened in Syria. As soon as Trump announces that he wants to remove troops from somewhere, he is automatically contradicted by the Deep State or its prime representative in this incident John Bolton.”

    “What we see here is a continuous clash between Trump and the government he is purporting to lead. Whenever he makes some type of attempt to reduce the number of troops, the Deep State intervenes,” he added. 

    “This is going to be a crucial issue right now, because right now he is claiming — as one of his greatest triumphs — that he has brought North and South Korea together. If they refuse to allow any type of drawdown of troops, that will end whatever rapprochement that can be between North and South Korea, that will be the end of the deal, that will be the end of his legacy, that will be the end of his presidency pretty much,” the analyst noted.

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un last month agreed for a meeting with US President Donald Trump after the former CIA Director, now the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, met with Kim secretively in North Korea.

    During their first summit in more than a decade, the two leaders stated that they would seek an agreement to establish “permanent” and “solid” peace on the Korean peninsula.

YouTube Reinstate Video Exposing Israel’s Brutality Towards Palestinians

  • YouTube Reinstate Video Exposing Israel’s Brutality Towards Palestinians
    by SyndiGate.info, April 26th, 2018, https://www.albawaba.com/
    YouTube on Wednesday decided to reinstate a video exposing Israel’s brutality towards Palestinians after receiving backlash on social media.

    Claiming the content violated its terms of service, the video-sharing platform on Sunday deleted the video, which was posted by Palestinian academician and activist Sana Kassem to pay tribute to Palestinians killed by Israeli forces during recent demonstrations in Gaza.

    Renowned American professor and activist Norman Finkelstein reposted the video, which was again removed by YouTube. Finkelstein appealed to YouTube in an email, asking for the reason for its decision.

    “They will patiently wait until all the children in Gaza are murdered by Israel. Then they will repost the video,” Finkelstein told Anadolu Agency. Shortly after his statement to Anadolu Agency, YouTube responded to Finkelstein, telling him they will be reinstating the video but placing it behind an age restriction. “YouTube reposts the Gaza video but classifies it as pornography,” Finkelstein said on his Twitter account, where he also shared the video.

    Accordingly, users can access the video only after logging into YouTube and confirming their age. But according to many YouTube users who often post videos criticizing Israel for its brutality against Palestinians, this is not the first time that YouTube has done this.

    “All my YouTube videos have been deleted by YouTube as I’ve been criticizing Israel and its blatant disregard for Palestinian life,” Robert Martin, an Australian activist who lives in Palestine, said on Twitter.

    “Double standard: YouTube deletes video tribute of killed Palestinian journalist Yasser Murtaja as ‘sensational’ incitement but leaves up videos of Israelis being attacked,” the Mondoweiss news website said.

    At least 21 Palestinians were martyred and at least 1,500 others wounded in demonstrations on March 30 marking Land Day, when tens of thousands of Gazans converged on the Gaza Strip’s roughly 45-kilometer eastern border with Israel to reaffirm their right to return to their ancestral homes in historical Palestine.

    Dubbed the “Great March of Return,” the protests were also aimed at pressuring Israel to lift its more than decade-long blockade of Gaza. Israel has deployed thousands of troops along the fraught border, vowing to use deadly force against anyone who threatens the “Israeli security infrastructure”.

Ignore, Deny, Downplay: Accounts of Syrians from Douma Have No Place in Western Narrative

  • Ignore, Deny, Downplay: Accounts of Syrians from Douma Have No Place in Western Narrative
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Whatever the Douma residents, who had first-hand experience of the shooting of the ‘water dousing after chemical attack’ video, have to say, their words simply don’t fit into the narrative allowed in the West, analysts told RT.

    Footage of screaming bewildered civilians and children being doused with water, presumably to decontaminate them, was a key part in convincing Western audiences that a chemical attack happened in Douma. Russia brought the people seen in the video to Brussels, where they told anyone interested in listening that the scene was staged. Their testimonies, however, were swiftly branded as bizarre and underwhelming” and even an “obscene masquerade” staged by Russians.

    “They refuse to see this as evidence, obviously pending what the OPCW team is going to come up with in Douma,”
     Middle East expert Ammar Waqqaf said in an interview with RT. The alleged chemical incident, without any investigation, has already become a “solid fact” in the West, which the US, Britain and France based their “retaliatory” strike on.
