Ahmadinejad slams West’s instrumental use of media

(TehranTimes) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad slams the West for its instrumental use of media with the aim to dominate the world.

The president made the remarks in a Saturday speech to mark the ‘Reporters’ Day’.

August 8 (Mordad 17 in the Iranian calendar) is named the Reporter’s Day marking the anniversary of the martyrdom of IRNA correspondent Mahmoud Saremi in Afghanistan in 1998 when Taliban fighters occupied the Iranian consulate in Mazari Sharif.

“Western media have always portrayed justice-seeking nations as weak and inefficient while showing the bullying powers as freedom-seeking and pro-democratic,” Ahmadinejad stated.

The West is using media as a psychological warfare tool against other countries, the president noted.

Ahmadinejad cited the Palestine issue as a concrete example in which Western media try to manipulate realities on the ground.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad noted that there is no obstacle in the way of Iranians livings abroad to return back to the country.

The president also called on organizations which have filed lawsuits against certain reporters to withdraw their complaints. – Source: Tehran Times

MSM: Climate change ‘will increase Mexico-US migration’

COMMENT: Global Warming propaganda now to justify mass-migration to the U.S., which is already occurring… MSM spin at its most ridiculous.

(BBC) – A warming climate could see millions of adult Mexicans migrate to the US as rising temperatures cause a drop in crop yields, according to a study by researchers at Princeton University.

For every 10% of lost crop yields in Mexico, another 2% of Mexicans are likely to leave their country, the study says.

The research draws a clear connection between climate change and immigration – two heavily debated issues in the US.

It says warming may bring between 1.4m and 6.7m Mexicans to the US by 2080. Read More Here

Video: Murdoch’s mouthpiece – It’s not what Beck exposes, it’s the issues he deflects and who he discredits that counts

(MakeItEightEh) – If you are a businessman and need to hire a potential employee, what is standard procedure when “checking out” your prospective employee?

Well, one prudent thing to do would be to contact the previous employer.

Can you imagine FOX News, as it called CNN to get a character reference for Glenn Beck? What do you suppose CNN would report?

Well, they would likely tell FOX that Glenn was good at following orders, toeing the “station line” and reporting what he was asked to do. For CNN, that would be the “liberal line”. Did he do a good job? Would CNN tell FOX he was great for CNN? Or, would they say, well Glenn became too “Republican” for our liking, and so we realized he had to go. Kind of like Lou Dobbs?

MSM: The Death of Newspapers and the Failure of Paywalls

(Guardian) – If you are reading this article on a printed copy of the Guardian, what you have in your hand will, just 15 years from now, look as archaic as a Western Union telegram does today. In less than 50 years, according to Clay Shirky, it won’t exist at all. The reason, he says, is very simple, and very obvious: if you are 25 or younger, you’re probably already reading this on your computer screen. “And to put it in one bleak sentence, no medium has ever survived the indifference of 25-year-olds.”

You have probably never even heard of Shirky, and until this interview I hadn’t either. When I ask him to define what he does, he laughs, and admits that often when he’s leaving a party someone will say to him, “What exactly is it you do?” His standard reply – “I work on the theory and practice of social media”– is not just wilfully opaque, but crushingly dreary, which is funny, because he is one of the most illuminating people I’ve ever met.

New Study Documents Media’s Servitude to Government – Glenn Greenwald

(Salon) – A newly released study from students at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government provides the latest evidence of how thoroughly devoted the American establishment media is to amplifying and serving (rather than checking) government officials.  This new study examines how waterboarding has been discussed by America’s four largest newspapers over the past 100 years, and finds that the technique, almost invariably, was unequivocally referred to as “torture” — until the U.S. Government began openly using it and insisting that it was not torture, at which time these newspapers obediently ceased describing it that way: Continue reading

66% of Voters Are Angry At The Media

(RasmussenReports) – Sixty-six percent (66%) of U.S. voters describe themselves as at least somewhat angry at the media, including 33% who are Very Angry.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 31% say they are not angry at the media, but that includes just nine percent (9%) who say they are not at all angry.

It’s important to note, however, that the question did not in any way define media or differentiate between media outlets such as CNN and Fox News.

But voters have consistently said in surveys that they believe the national media has a liberal bias and that most reporters try to help the candidates they want to win. Just before Election Day 2008, 51% said most reporters were trying to help Barack Obama win the presidency. Just seven percent (7%) thought they were trying to help John McCain, while 31% viewed their coverage as unbiased.

Corporate Media Connects Hutaree Members to U.S. Military

Another Neocon Attack on Ron Paul

(LewRockwell) – Religious rightist Michael Gerson, a Karl Rove disciple and Bush speechwriter, was rewarded with a perch at the once influential Washington Post. So his attempt at thought control, while despicable, is also predictable. Oh for the days of that fake Brit and real CIA agent Bill Buckley, when he could expel Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard,  John T. Flynn, Albert Jay Nock, and anyone else who refused to back the warfare state, from…from…the pages of his mag, I guess. Funny how establishment types still tell these fairy tales to warm themselves around the fires of burning books. It never worked outside the MSM. And now, thanks to the internet, Rand, Rothbard, and the rest are almost infinitely more influential than the excommunicating Bill, whose forgettable encyclicals have disappeared along with him.

Disinformation Tactics: The Methods Used To Keep You In The Dark

There was a time, not too long ago (relatively speaking), that governments and the groups of elites that controlled them did not find it necessary to conscript themselves into wars of disinformation. Propaganda was relatively straightforward. The lies were much simpler. The control of information flow was easily directed. In fact, during the early Middle-Ages in most European countries commoners were not even allowed to own a Bible, nor was the Bible allowed to be interpreted from Latin to another language, let alone any other tome that might breed “dangerous ideas”. This was due in large part to the established feudal system and its hierarchy of royals and clergy. Continue reading

The Big Lie and the Paradigms of Deceit

The following essay, entitled “The Paradigms of Deceit,” is written by a Danish friend and supporter named Kaj Krinsmøe. It is an excellent explanation of the well known propaganda tactic used to shape public opinion, described and employed by Adolf Hitler as “The Great Lie” or “Colossal Untruth” — and how the Great Lie is currently being used by our corrupt political leaders and the Zionist-controlled media on the people of North America and Europe. The “colossal untruths” of our time are the government and media lies about the events of 9-11, Islamic terrorism and Afghanistan, global warming, and the Iranian nuclear threat. The Zionist deception known as the “War on Terror” is a complete fraud — and an extremely expensive one at that. Continue reading
