How the CIA controls the Media Narrative!

“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. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991

Sun Tzu once said “All War is Deception” in our post-truth world the media has played a major role in covering up the truth about what really occurs in the almost constant wars of aggression. The Military-industrial-media/politico-media complex truly does have a stranglehold on what can and cannot be said in the public discourse. Using control methods going back to the days of the propaganda of Edward Bernays the bankers who rule America are able to keep the narrative to their benefit. Often the media is used to propagate these false “humanitarian” wars.

In the 70s a detailed discussion of the CIA’s relation with the news media was published on April 1976. The report covered the agencies ties with both foreign and domestic news media. The following is taken from page 455 on the Church Committee Final Report on Foreign and Military
Intelligence, it stated: “The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets.”

It has been revealed that “From June 1999 to March 2000, CNN employed military specialists in ‘psychological operations’ (Psyops) in their Southeast TV bureau and CNN radio division.” and that “Psyops also had team members working at National Public Radio (NPR).” when one reviews the constant Russophobic propaganda being put out by the various Western news outlets, it becomes quite apparent who really makes the narrative for Western news outlets.

The late Udo Ulfkotte was a journalist who revealed the truth about NATO influence over the Western media he spoke of how NATO propaganda had continuously pushed for war against Russia, he spoke of how he was supported by the CIA to write pro-American propaganda. Udo Ulfkotte was an honest man and was tired of the bad journalist standards and the American propaganda. Udo Ulfkotte wrote about this in a book called Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News (I highly suggest the reader/and or genuine researcher viewing this article buy that book).

Journalist Carl Bernstein stated that “The CIA’s use of the American news media has been much more extensive than Agency officials have acknowledged publicly or in closed sessions with members of Congress.” Reporters were even used as informants and spies, giving the locations of plane movements and information on infustrucutre. Carl Bernstein’s research also revealed that some journalists were sent to countries to do stories at the request of the CIA. Bernstein also stated that “In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”

A prime example of how the CIA spreads propaganda is CNN, turn on CNN and you will see hours upon hours of Globalist and Corporate propaganda. CNN will give bias coverage on Syria, Russia, Venezuela, and will constantly attack President Trump with numerous accusations, one of CNN’s “journalists” Anderson Cooper admitted to having worked with the CIA. This is nothing new to CNN since they have been lying since their creation, especially since the first Gulf War

During the Yugoslav Wars it was CNN who refused to cover suffering Serbs and portrayed them as war criminals, while constantly humanizing the Albanian factions. CNN glorified Bill Clinton’s war of aggression against Serbia including the American bombing of Yugoslavian infrastructure and killing of civillians. The CNN coverage of Yugoslavia was one-sided and biased, it was consistently pro-NATO and anti-Serb.

CNN’s relation with intelligence agencies is so great that In one case, CNN was given pre-warnings two days before NATO bombed the Serbian television station in Belgrade, in what seemed to be an attempted assassination on the Serbian information minister Aleksander Vucic. Thankfully Vucic was late and was able to avoid death and the NATO missiles that would later slam into the building, however a young assistant working at the building was not so lucky. CNN to this day claims it was a coincidence, claiming that their entertainment department did not know of the news departments instructions to leave the Belgrade building.

The matrix of the mainstream media’s information control can be broken. More and more Americans are tired of being told lies by the mainstream media. These patriotic Americans are moving to the Alternative media and this launching a serious backlash against the ratings of the globalist owned media networks like CNN. Already the mainstream New York times was forced to retract disinfo stories accusing the Russians dis-crediting the Anti-Russian propaganda constantly being put out by the mainstream media. This is good news, one can only pray and hope that God’s will shall be against the mainstream media.
