Mass Media Propaganda

Below are highly revealing one-paragraph excerpts of key media articles on the role of mass media propaganda in suppressing news of important cover-ups affecting our world. These powerful articles expose media collusion in disseminating government propaganda and keeping government and corporate corruption secret.

Whistle-blower Had to Fight NSA, LA Times to Tell Story:
Whistle-blower AT&T technician Mark Klein says his effort to reveal alleged government surveillance of domestic Internet traffic was blocked not only by U.S. intelligence officials but also by the top editors of the Los Angeles Times.

Buying the War:
Despite profound questions over the failure to locate weapons of mass destruction and the increasing violence in Baghdad, many in the press confirmed the White House's claim that the war was won. How did the mainstream press get it so wrong?

Behind the Eavesdropping Story, a Loud Silence:
My queries concerned the timing of the exclusive Dec. 16 article about President Bush's secret decision in the months after 9/11 to authorize the warrantless eavesdropping on Americans in the United States

Bribes offered to scientists:
Scientists and economists have been offered $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by one of the world's largest oil companies to undermine the UN climate change report.

Experts Urging Broader Inquiry In Towers' Fall:
Saying that the current investigation into how and why the twin towers fell on Sept. 11 is inadequate, some of the nation's leading structural engineers and fire-safety experts are calling for a new, independent and better-financed inquiry that could produce the kinds of conclusions vital for skyscrapers and future buildings nationwide.

"If the military is testing a secret military device, why do they keep doing it here?" she asked me. "If it's not a secret why do they keep scaring the bejesus out of people?" Adding a further wrinkle to this story, Joiner was fired from The Empire-Tribune a week ago.

Letter to Thomas Kean from Sibel Edmonds:
After [9/11] we, the translators at the FBI's largest and most important translation unit, were told to slow down, even stop, translation of critical information related to terrorist activities.

How the spooks took over the news:
One product among many from a new machinery of propaganda which has been created by the United States and its allies since the terrorist attacks of September 2001. For the first time in human history, there is a concerted strategy to manipulate global perception.

The ricin ring that never was:
Yesterday's verdicts on five defendants ... make clear there was no ricin ring. Nor did the "ricin ring" make or have ricin. Moreover, ricin is not a weapon of mass destruction. It is a poison which has only ever been used for one-on-one killings.

Lifting the Censor's Veil on the Shame of Iraq:
While at work in a headquarters office, he said, he learned that most of the detainees at Abu Ghraib had committed only very minor nonviolent offenses, or no offenses at all.
