This week the State Department’s John Kerry has spoken about the problems of foreign ran media and alternative media that it is detrimental to the citizens of the United States. Specifically spoke about Russia’s RT media and how it should be ignored, that it was a “propaganda bullhorn.” It is becoming obvious that alternative media is beginning to put a wrinkle in some of the elite plans moving forward and they don’t like it. The fact that RT media was mentioned and the citizens were told to ignore it is troublesome since that also means in the meantime they are working on plans to silence alternative media sources so there are no more obstacles moving forward. They called for equality, they called for globalization which they got but yet they want us to stay brainwashed from the BS mainstream media and how it plays out today. This must be a dream or a prank or joke anything but real.
With the recent internet signing to a foreign nation that we still do not know which, the talks of the bad radio shows and now this problem with alternative news media, it begins to become real scary as they may be looking for a specific switches to shut us down, I seriously doubt the conversation ends with Kerry saying
The propaganda bullhorn that is the state sponsored RT program has been deployed to promote, actually, RT network has been deployed to promote President Putin’s fantasy about what is playing out on the ground,” Kerry said, adding that RT spends almost all its time “propagandizing and distorting what is happening, or not happening, in Ukraine.”
These powerhouses are gaining control in many ways with food, surveillance, drones, new laws, healthcare, entertainment, data mining, mainstream media, common core but they cannot fully gain control which they don’t like so if I were to guess there will be significant think tank work on this situation and aggressive advances, possible law changes to come. However just like they lost the gun control battle, they will lose the alternative media battle as well. The citizens of the US will not let it go and like the powerhouses that need it to go away, the citizens need it to stay even more and this is one that won’t get slid by anytime soon.
Information freedom is under attack
Ironically, Kerry was warned three years ago by his predecessor of the steady strides being made by RT – as well as Al-Jazeera and CCTV (the new English-language programming set up by China). At a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with then-Sen. Kerry in the chair, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented that the U.S. is “losing the information war,” and added that she finds watching RT “quite instructive.”
Are Kerry and Clinton unable to grasp that the U.S. corporate media’s regurgitation of the manifold and manifestly deceitful justifications for U.S. actions abroad is the main reason why RT and others are gaining on us? Despite awesome advances in communications technology, it remains difficult to make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear, which is often what U.S. policies abroad are, especially to the people of the targeted countries.
It is easy to blame “Russian propaganda” for just about everything, including the public distrust of the endless propaganda pouring forth from Official Washington and its “fawning corporate media.” But people tire of the constant spin from U.S. officials and the one-sided coverage by the U.S. mainstream press. I may be naïve about this, but I think people really do prefer the truth.
In all honesty do the US leaders really think the people are that stupid or brainwashed so quickly to believe all the nonsense that is spun out of mainstream. I mean some of the junk that comes out of mainstream is beyond ridiculous that only a brainwashed or innocent group would ever believe. There comes a time when it gets old and change is needed. The American people need alternative media to keep up with the truth or to follow a story that they can do their own research on, to have a variety of propaganda if that’s what it takes, to decipher their conspiracy theories, to have freedom of information no matter how bad the content. No reason to block history or certain history books like they do in Canada or other censored nations, this is far over reach that is amazing they even got away with themselves, for the US it will be devastating to say the least. Almost like taking away our drinking water.
