The expression “buyer beware…” is one most of us are familiar with. Often used with regards to purchasing a car or any large item, it is applicable to many things. However, one that it is not, is information, or more specifically, “News Media”. Here the slogan should be “Buyer beware of Bullshit!”.
“No one outside America any longer believes the US media or the US government… You can’t believe a word the American media says. If they say anything correct, it’s just an accident.” –Paul Craig Roberts
For millennia, the average peasant had little knowledge of the philandering’s and indiscretion of their liege lords, how many bastard children they had sired or who’s chalice had been poisoned. European “royalty” is a who’s who of liars, traitors and inbred psychopaths, but even today they are treated like…well, like “royalty”. Unfortunately, the peasant mentality has a very short memory compounded by an extreme fascination with shiny baubles. Ogling Kim Kardashian’s tits appears to be more important than whether we are on the brink of WWIII. Hey, and as tits go, they are dandies.
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years…” -David Rockefeller, speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberger meeting, Baden, Germany
It is unfortunate that this extreme lack of enquiry and concern does not register in the minds of the masses. Maybe one reason is that we are bombarded with horror-stories on an hourly basis and so ignore the “plan” that Rockefeller talks about. “Terrorist” attacks flow from mainstream media like the rapids at Niagara Falls, thundering down on us unsparingly to the point that now we are almost numbered by the brutality, whether fake or otherwise. But, similar to Kimmie’s tits, this information is shiny on the outside and grabs our attention, but on further inspection, there is not a lot going on inside. It really is a sad indictment of human integrity that a woman’s breast can trigger a greater response than the mass slaughter of Palestinian children, for example or the reality that our “controllers” plot and scheme against us.
“Hacks, at least the ones I’d have round to dinner, still naively pursue something they like to call the truth. Their problem is that it no longer exists. For truth has been destroyed by public relations executives or “scum” as we like to call them.” -Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times , 18 May 2003
The best descriptor of todays mainstream media, or what I like to call the “great lie-machine”, is vacuous. Potentially full of hot air, bloated expert opinions and steaming piles of horse-dung, but ultimately empty of any real substance. It appears to be a competition on who can broadcast the biggest load of bollocks and still keep a straight face. The real tragedy is not the lies and falsehoods spread by these revered institutions, but the fact that the audience believes it at all. It’s not as if these fabrications haven’t been exposed regarding the Media, or for that matter, our Governments. But, apparently, this is their job. Years ago, a news paper would investigate and report, and more often than not, expose the misdoings of individuals, companies and politicos. Today, that task has fallen to “alternative media”, usually single individuals that read, research and post counter-comments to the crap on TV. Mass-Media is a farce. It is the latest episode in a never-ending soap opera of lies and disinformation dredged from the minds of sycophantic toadies who line up to shove their Pinocchio noses up the arse of their controllers. Tragically, it is not restricted to Fox News, the epitome of “yellow journalism”; a racist, hate-mongering load that is peddled as if it had integrity. I am sorry, but you can’t wrap a dog turd up in gold foil and tie a red ribbon around it and then claim it is fillet steak. It’s still a turd. And the others are really no better, because, one way or other, they all broadcast the same manipulated and massaged dis-information. Just because someone talks with a British accent (BBC) does not make their information any more truthful. And, let’s face it; Britain did not conquer one-sixth of the planet handing out buttered-scones and rosebushes. They did it through lies, manipulation and scheming machinations. They were a great example to the United States who has taken over the role of “World Policeman” whether we like it or not.
It is a tragic reality that mainstream mass-media is a corrupt cesspool of lying scum; oh so happy to betray the populous in search of fame and fortune. It is mandatory that the troops who work for these corporations tow the line and self-censor their comments. Anyone, who breaks the rules and tells the truth is fired and possibly blackballed. The only real benefit of these goons is, whatever they tell us, then believe the opposite.
As I said… “Buyer beware of Bullshit”! -The Warrior
