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. Rules were enforced with the threat of property confiscation and execution for anyone who strayed from the rigid socio-political structure. Those who had theological, metaphysical, or scientific information outside of the conventional and scripted collective world view were tortured and slaughtered. The elites kept the information to themselves, and removed its remnants from mainstream recognition, sometimes for centuries before it was rediscovered.

With the advent of anti-feudalism, and most importantly the success of the American Revolution, elites were no longer able to dominate information with the edge of a blade or the barrel of a gun. The establishment of Democracies (and Democratic Republics), with their philosophy of open government and rule by the people, compelled Aristocratic minorities to plot more subtle ways of obstructing the truth and thus maintaining their hold over the world without exposing themselves to retribution from the masses. Thus, the complex art of disinformation was born. The technique, the “magic” of the lie, was refined and perfected. The mechanics of the human mind and the human soul became an endless obsession for the elites.

The goal was malicious, but socially radical; instead of expending the impossible energy needed to dictate the very form and existence of the truth, they would allow it to drift, obscured in a fog of contrived data. They would wrap the truth in a “Gordian Knot” of misdirections and fabrications so elaborate that they felt certain the majority of people would surrender, giving up long before they ever finished unraveling the deceit. The goal was not to destroy the truth, but to hide it in plain sight.

In modern times, and with carefully engineered methods, this goal has for the most part been accomplished. However, these methods also have inherent weaknesses. Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. In this article, we will examine the methods used to fertilize and promote the growth of disinformation, as well as how to identify the roots of disinformation and effectively cut them, starving out the entire system of fallacies once and for all.

Media Disinformation Methods

The mainstream media, once tasked with the job of investigating government corruption and keeping elitists in line, has now become nothing more than a PR firm for corrupt officials and their Globalist handlers. The days of the legitimate “investigative reporter” are long gone, and journalism itself has deteriorated into a rancid pool of so called “TV Editorialists” who treat their own baseless opinions as supported fact.

The elitist co-opting of news has been going on in one form or another since the invention of the printing press, however, the first methods of media disinformation truly came to fruition under the supervision of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who believed the truth was “subjective” and open to his personal interpretation. Hearst’s legacy of lies and sensationalism lives on in the Hearst published magazine ‘Popular Mechanics’, who accuse the growing 9/11 Truth Movement of outrageous “conspiracy theory” while at the same time consistently publishing articles about UFO sightings and secret government flying saucer programs.

popularmechanics-hearst-911-med.jpg

As we will show, this strange juxtaposition of mixed signals and hypocritical accusations is characteristic of all purveyors of disinformation.

Some of the main tactics used by the mainstream media to mislead the masses are as follows:

Lie Big, Retract Quietly

Mainstream media sources (especially newspapers) are notorious for reporting flagrantly dishonest and unsupported news stories on the front page, then quietly retracting those stories on the very back page when they are caught. In this case, the point is to railroad the lie into the collective consciousness. Once the lie is finally exposed, it is already too late, and a large portion of the population will not notice or care when the truth comes out. A good example of this would be the collusion of the MSM with the Bush administration to convince the American public after 9/11 that Iraq had WMDs, even though no concrete evidence existed to prove it. George W. Bush’s eventual admission that there had never been any WMDs in Iraq (except chemical weapons which the U.S. actually sold to Saddam under the Reagan / Bush administration) was lightly reported or glazed over by most mainstream news sources. The core reason behind a war that has now killed over a million people was proven to be completely fraudulent, yet I still run into people today who believe that Iraq had nukes…

Unconfirmed Or Controlled Sources As Fact

Cable news venues often cite information from “unnamed” sources, government sources that have an obvious bias or agenda, or “expert” sources without providing an alternative “expert” view. The information provided by these sources is usually backed by nothing more than blind faith. A recent example of this would be the Osama Bin Laden audio tapes which supposedly reveal that the Christmas “Underwear Bomber” was indeed Al-Qaeda:

http://abcnews.go.com/WN/osama-bin-laden-addresses-president-obama-audio-tape/story?id=9650267

The media treats the audio tape as undeniable fact in numerous stories, then at the same time prints a side story which shows that the White House cannot confirm that the tape is even real:

http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE60N16I20100124

If the White House cannot confirm the authenticity of the tape, then why did the media report on its contents as if it had been confirmed?

Calculated Omission

Otherwise known as “cherry picking” data. One simple piece of information or root item of truth can derail an entire disinfo news story, so instead of trying to gloss over it, they simply pretend as if it doesn’t exist. When the fact is omitted, the lie can appear entirely rational. This tactic is also used extensively when disinformation agents and crooked journalists engage in open debate.

Distraction, and the Manufacture of Relevance

Sometimes the truth wells up into the public awareness regardless of what the media does to bury it. When this occurs their only recourse is to attempt to change the public’s focus and thereby distract them from the truth they were so close to grasping. The media accomplishes this by “over-reporting” on a subject that has nothing to do with the more important issues at hand. Ironically, the media can take an unimportant story, and by reporting on it ad nauseum, cause many Americans to assume that because the media won’t shut-up about it, it must be important! An example of this would be the recent push for an audit of the Federal Reserve which was gaining major public support, as well as political support. Instead of reporting on this incredible and unprecedented movement for transparency in the Fed, the MSM spent two months or more reporting non-stop on the death of Michael Jackson, a pop idol who had not released a decent record since “Thriller,” practically deifying the man who only months earlier was being lambasted by the same MSM for having “wandering hands” when children were about.

Dishonest Debate Tactics

Sometimes, men who actually are concerned with the average American’s pursuit of honesty and legitimate fact-driven information break through and appear on T.V. However, rarely are they allowed to share their views or insights without having to fight through a wall of carefully crafted deceit and propaganda. Because the media knows they will lose credibility if they do not allow guests with opposing viewpoints every once in a while, they set up and choreograph specialized T.V. debates in highly restrictive environments which put the guest on the defensive, and make it difficult for them to clearly convey their ideas or facts.

TV pundits are often trained in what are commonly called “Alinsky Tactics.” Saul Alinsky was a moral relativist, and champion of the lie as a tool for the “greater good;” essentially, a modern day Machiavelli. His “Rules for Radicals” were supposedly meant for grassroots activists who opposed the establishment, and emphasized the use of any means necessary to defeat one’s political opposition. But is it truly possible to defeat an establishment built on lies, by use of even more elaborate lies, and by sacrificing one’s ethics?

Today, Alinsky’s rules are used more often by the establishment than by its opposition. These tactics have been adopted by governments and disinformation specialists across the world, but they are most visible in TV debate. While Alinsky sermonized about the need for confrontation in society, his debate tactics are actually designed to circumvent real and honest confrontation of opposing ideas with slippery tricks and diversions. Alinsky’s tactics, and their modern usage, can be summarized as follows:

1) Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.

We see this tactic in many forms. For example, projecting your own movement as mainstream, and your opponent’s as fringe. Convincing your opponent that his fight is a futile one. Your opposition may act differently, or even hesitate to act at all, based on their perception of your power.

2) Never go outside the experience of your people, and whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.

Don’t get drawn into a debate about a subject you do not know as well as or better than your opposition. If possible, draw them into such a situation instead. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty in your opposition. This is commonly used against unwitting interviewees on cable news shows whose positions are set up to be skewered. The target is blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address. In television and radio, this also serves to waste broadcast time to prevent the target from expressing his own positions.

3) Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

The objective is to target the opponent’s credibility and reputation by accusations of hypocrisy. If the tactician can catch his opponent in even the smallest misstep, it creates an opening for further attacks.

4) Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

“Ron Paul is a crackpot.” “Dennis Kucinich is short and weird.” “9-11 twoofers wear tinfoil hats.” Ridicule is almost impossible to counter. It’s irrational. It infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage. It also works as a pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

5) A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

The popularization of the term “Teabaggers” is a classic example, it caught on by itself because people seem to think it’s clever, and enjoy saying it. Keeping your talking points simple and fun keeps your side motivated, and helps your tactics spread autonomously, without instruction or encouragement.

6) A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

See rule number 6. Don’t become old news. If you keep your tactics fresh, its easier to keep your people active. Not all disinformation agents are paid. The “useful idiots” have to be motivated by other means. Mainstream disinformation often changes gear from one method to the next and then back again.

7) Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. Never give the target a chance to rest, regroup, recover or re-strategize. Take advantage of current events and twist their implications to support your position. Never let a good crisis go to waste.

8) The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

This goes hand in hand with Rule #1. Perception is reality. Allow your opposition to expend all of its energy in expectation of an insurmountable scenario. The dire possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.

9) The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

The objective of this pressure is to force the opposition to react and make the mistakes that are necessary for the ultimate success of the campaign.

10) If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

As grassroots activism tools, Alinsky tactics have historically been used (for example, by labor movements) to force the opposition to react with violence against activists, which leads to popular sympathy for the activists’ cause. Today, false (or co-opted) grassroots movements use this technique in debate as well as in planned street actions. The idea is to provoke (or stage) ruthless attacks against ones’ self, so as to be perceived as the underdog, or the victim. Today, this technique is commonly used to create the illusion that a certain movement is “counterculture” or “anti-establishment.”

11) The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. Today, this is often used offensively against legitimate activists, such as the opponents of the Federal Reserve. Complain that your opponent is merely “pointing out the problems.” Demand that they offer a solution.

12) Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. The targets supporters will expose themselves. Go after individual people, not organizations or institutions. People hurt faster than institutions.

The next time you view an MSM debate, watch the pundits carefully, you will likely see many if not all of the strategies above used on some unsuspecting individual attempting to tell the truth.

Internet Disinformation Methods

Because the MSM’s bag of tricks has been so exhausted over such a long period of time, many bitter and enraged consumers of information are now turning to alternative news sources, most of which exist on the collective commons we call the internet. At first, it appears, the government and elitists ignored the web as a kind of novelty, or just another mechanism they could exploit in spreading disinformation. As we all now well know, they dropped the ball, and the internet has become the most powerful tool for truth history has ever seen.

That being said, they are now expending incredible resources in order to catch up to their mistake, utilizing every trick in their arsenal to beat web users back into submission. While the anonymity of the internet allows for a certain immunity against many of Saul Alinsky’s manipulative tactics, it also allows governments to attack those trying to spread the truth covertly. In the world of web news, we call these people “disinfo trolls.” Trolls are now being openly employed by governments in countries like the U.S. and Israel specifically to scour the internet for alternative news sites and disrupt their ability to share information.

http://www.rawstory.com/news/2006/Raw_obtains_CENTCOM_email_to_bloggers_1016.html

http://www.thenational.ae/article/20090104/FOREIGN/882042198/1002

http://www.atlanticfreepress.com/news/1/10793-twitterers-paid-to-spread-israeli-propaganda-internet-warfare-team-unveiled.html

Internet trolls, also known as “paid posters” or “paid bloggers,” are increasingly being employed by private corporations as well, often for marketing purposes. In fact, it is a rapidly growing industry.

Trolls use a wide variety of strategies, some of which are unique to the internet, here are just a few:

1) Make outrageous comments designed to distract or frustrate: An Alinsky tactic used to make people emotional, although less effective because of the impersonal nature of the web.

2) Pose as a supporter of the truth, then make comments that discredit the movement: We have seen this even on our own forums — trolls pose as supporters of the Liberty Movement, then post long, incoherent diatribes so as to appear either racist or insane. Here is a live example of this tactic in use on Yahoo! Answers.

The key to this tactic is to make references to common Liberty Movement arguments while at the same time babbling nonsense, so as to make those otherwise valid arguments seem ludicrous by association.

In extreme cases, these “Trojan Horse Trolls” have been known to make posts which incite violence — a technique obviously intended to solidify the false assertions of the notorious MIAC report and other ADL/SPLC publications which purport that constitutionalists should be feared as potential domestic terrorists.

3) Dominate Discussions: Trolls often interject themselves into productive web discussions in order to throw them off course and frustrate the people involved.

4) Prewritten Responses: Many trolls are supplied with a list or database with pre-planned talking points designed as generalized and deceptive responses to honest arguments. 9/11 “debunker” trolls are notorious for this.

5) False Association: This works hand in hand with item #2, by invoking the stereotypes established by the “Trojan Horse Troll.”

For example: calling those against the Federal Reserve “conspiracy theorists” or “lunatics”. Deliberately associating anti-globalist movements with big foot or alien enthusiasts, because of the inherent negative connotations. Using false associations to provoke biases and dissuade people from examining the evidence objectively.

6) False Moderation: Pretending to be the “voice of reason” in an argument with obvious and defined sides in an attempt to move people away from what is clearly true into a “grey area” where the truth becomes “relative.”

7) Straw Man Arguments: A very common technique. The troll will accuse his opposition of subscribing to a certain point of view, even if he does not, and then attacks that point of view. Or, the troll will put words in the mouth of his opposition, and then rebut those specific words. For example: “9/11 truthers say that no planes hit the WTC towers, and that it was all just computer animation. What are they, crazy?”

Sometimes, these strategies are used by average people with serious personality issues. However, if you see someone using these tactics often, or using many of them at the same time, you may be dealing with a paid internet troll.

Government Disinformation Methods

Governments, and the globalists who back them, have immense assets — an almost endless fiat money printing press — and control over most legal and academic institutions. With these advantages, disinformation can be executed on a massive scale. Here are just a handful of the most prominent tactics used by government agencies and private think tanks to guide public opinion, and establish the appearance of consensus:

1) Control The Experts: Most Americans are taught from kindergarten to ignore their instincts for the truth and defer to the “professional class” for all their answers. The problem is that much of the professional class is indoctrinated throughout their college years, many of them molded to support the status quo. Any experts that go against the grain are ostracized by their peers.

2) Control The Data: By controlling the source data of any investigation, be it legal or scientific, the government has the ability to engineer any truth they wish, that is, as long as the people do not care enough to ask for the source data. Two major examples of controlled and hidden source data include; the NIST investigation of the suspicious 9/11 WTC collapses, in which NIST engineers, hired by the government, have kept all source data from their computer models secret, while claiming that the computer models prove the collapses were “natural”. Also, the recent exposure of the CRU Climate Labs and their manipulation of source data in order to fool the public into believing that Global Warming is real, and accepting a world-wide carbon tax. The CRU has refused to release the source data from its experiments for years, and now we know why.

3) Skew The Statistics: This tactic is extremely evident in the Labor Department’s evaluations on unemployment, using such tricks as incorporating ambiguous birth / death ratios into their calculation in order to make it appear as though there are less unemployed people than there really are, or leaving out certain subsections of the population, like those who are unemployed and no longer seeking benefits.

3) Guilt By False Association: Governments faced with an effective opponent will always attempt to demonize that person or group in the eyes of the public. This is often done by associating them with a group or idea that the public already hates. Example: During the last election, they tried to associate Ron Paul supporters with racist groups (and more recently, certain Fox News anchors) in order to deter moderate Democrats from taking an honest look at Congressman Paul’s policies.

4) Manufacture Good News: This falls in with the skewing of statistics, and it also relies heavily on Media cooperation. The economic “Green Shoots” concept is a good example of the combination of government and corporate media interests in order to create an atmosphere of false optimism based on dubious foundations.

5) Controlled Opposition: Men in positions of power have known for centuries the importance of controlled opposition. If a movement rises in opposition to one’s authority, one must usurp that movement’s leadership. If no such movement exists to infiltrate, the establishment will often create a toothless one, in order to fill that social need, and neutralize individuals who might have otherwise taken action themselves.

During the 1960’s and 70’s, the FBI began a secretive program called COINTELPRO. Along with illegal spying on American citizens who were against the Vietnam conflict or in support of the civil rights movement, they also used agents and media sources to pose as supporters of the movement, then purposely created conflict and division, or took control of the direction of the movement altogether. This same tactic has been attempted with the modern Liberty Movement on several levels, but has so far been ineffective in stopping our growth.

The NRA is another good example of controlled opposition, as many gun owners are satisfied that paying their annual NRA dues is tantamount to actively resisting anti-gun legislation; when in fact, the NRA is directly responsible for many of the compromises which result in lost ground on 2nd amendment issues. In this way, gun owners are not only rendered inactive, but actually manipulated into funding the demise of their own cause.

6) False Paradigms: Human beings have a tendency to categorize and label other people and ideas. It is, for better or worse, a fundamental part of how we understand the complexities of the world. This component of human nature, like most any other, can be abused as a powerful tool for social manipulation. By framing a polarized debate according to artificial boundaries, and establishing the two poles of that debate, social engineers can eliminate the perceived possibility of a third alternative. The mainstream media apparatus is the key weapon to this end. The endless creation of dichotomies, and the neat arrangement of ideologies along left/right lines, offers average people a very simple (though hopelessly inaccurate) way of thinking about politics. It forces them to choose a side, usually based solely on emotional or cultural reasons, and often lures them into supporting positions they would otherwise disagree with. It fosters an environment in which beating the other team is more important than ensuring the integrity of your own. Perhaps most importantly, it allows the social engineer to determine what is “fair game” for debate, and what is not.

Alinsky himself wrote: “One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.”

One merely needs to observe a heated debate between a Democrat and a Republican to see how deeply this belief has been ingrained on both sides, and how destructive it is to true intellectual discourse.

Stopping Disinformation

truth.jpg

The best way to disarm disinformation agents is to know their methods inside and out. This gives us the ability to point out exactly what they are doing in detail the moment they try to do it. Immediately exposing a disinformation tactic as it is being used is highly destructive to the person utilizing it. It makes them look foolish, dishonest, and weak for even making the attempt. Internet trolls most especially do not know how to handle their methods being deconstructed right in front of their eyes, and usually fold and run from debate when it occurs.

The truth, is precious. It is sad that there are so many in our society that have lost respect for it; people who have traded in their conscience and their soul for temporary financial comfort while sacrificing the stability and balance of the rest of the country in the process. The human psyche breathes on the air of truth, without it, humanity cannot survive. Without it, the species will collapse in on itself, starving from lack of intellectual and emotional sustenance. Disinformation does not only threaten our insight into the workings of our world; it makes us vulnerable to fear, misunderstanding, and doubt, all things that lead to destruction. It can lead good people to commit terrible atrocities against others, or even against themselves. Without a concerted and organized effort to diffuse mass-produced lies, the future will look bleak indeed.

    Your apprehensions are gaining ground. But in reality it is now time
    for the print and tv media and hoax internet tellers to hail that
    people are so aware they do not pay any heed to their false
    propagandas.
    In Paksitan big TV channel like GEO, Sama, are losing their
    reputation- it is for them to check their rating- now people switch
    over to other channels to avoid watching the same propaganda. They are
    dying their own death.
    Those who use internet are not fool, they have their own perceptions
    if some one feel that he is getting any benefit from false news and
    theories disseminated on media he is himself a fool like Kamran Khan
    and Dr. Shahid Masood and four of his partners speaking on phone.
    Similar is the position of Crisis cell and news beat they have lost
    their credibility and downing their rating in public. If these
    channels think that I am wrong- Go for rating. You are lossing
    viewers, soon you shall loose ads and then failures of channels.They
    are acting far beyond reality in this country.

    Artlady is like fairy hope out of pandora box. She presented her point of view in a very beautiful manner. I agree that no matter how much gloomy it looks, at the end of the day, baddies would be lined up as losers.

    I am not ashamed to confess I felt very little of myself. Nothing more to add except that I am all praise.

    Brilliant article! Very informative and painfully true! I absolutely love it! I believe that “the truth sets us free.” The beautiful thing about the truth is that it just IS. Trying to bury the truth does one thing, it gives the truth even more energy with which to pour forth. People cannot remain in denial forever, so eventually most everyone must come to grips with and face the truth regardless of how painful.

    All the lies and dirty tricks in the book can never shatter and destroy the truth. The truth however can and always does shatter and destroy all the lies and dirty tricks that have been employed for the purpose of preventing the truth from becoming known. At the end of the day, the perpetrators of lies, deception, disinfo and all the other dirty tricks will have no choice but to face the music for what they’ve done. I don’t know when but I have no doubt it will.

    Articles like this one go a long way towards giving the truth the boost it deserves.

    Ya! Tats true. The moral value of the society has been degraded to a large extend in the last decade. Tv channels also promotes this in an indirect way! This should be avoided.

      Airfone,

      I’ve seen trolls begin with the statement you did, then immediately slide into sex ed, pro-abortion, removing religion from government – “taking God out of the country” – as examples of “the New Immorality.” It instantly hijacks the discussion. Thanks for the opening.

    A very interesting article! An incident occurs – describing this is news. But no, different media groups go beyond the news and attribute this to A, B or C and deriving conclusions of their likings. This is painting of the news. This mean tactic started in 60s, it still reigns supreme.

    However, journalists not entirely own the blame. The tow line is behind the journalists. Journalists are just employees fetching bread, butter and shelter for their dear ones. The name of the game is advised behind the curtain – the owners. Nancy Kranich has written a prized paper on the hazard of ownership consolidation of information library media. Print and TV channels media have shrunk to the fewer hands. Nancy highlighted:
    “Publisher Simon and Schuster and the CBS Network both became part of the giant Viacom Corporation. General Electric bought NBC, and Capital Cities/ABC bought Disney”

    Ben Bagdikan writes in his book (The Media Monopoly) in 1983: “Today, the number of corporations controlling most of the America’s magazines, radio and TV stations, books, movies and daily mass-circulation newspapers has dropped from 50 to 5”. The jolt was strongly felt when Al-Jazeera outsmarted CNN, BBC, FOX etc.

    Source: http://www.helium.com/items/184501-the-growth-of-media-activism-in-united-states (This is my own article written way back)

    However, like the learned author has pointed out the disinformation in the name of information is being played by Western media in an adroitly manner such that it looks very much unbiased. Not so in Pakistan. The disinformation game is being played in a very clumsy manner and even a layman smells a rat.

    I just recently read a book called “Conversations with the Crow – The Final Conversations of Robert Trumball Crowley”

    Crowley was the former head of the CIA’s dirty tricks department and this is the closest thing one might come to a “death bed confession”.

    These are transcribed conversations between two former spooks whose lives seemed to overlap and you get to listen in as they are talking shop.

    Wickedly funny, disturbingly revealing, utterly fascinating. In it, Crowley flat out admits the CIA does exactly what is talked about here.

    “The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.

    In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”

    — Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx, ‘La Revue de Paris’, p.574, June 1, 1928

    There are 2 effective and easy ways to deal with this. First, do like I did, and chuck that rotten box. Second, NEVER believe anything that you’re told by government or the “mainstream” media.

    Okee dokee?

    Hello, and thanks for syndicating our work. We’ve been working hard putting out this material in an effort to drive up our search engine ranking and broaden our audience. However, if you guys don’t link back to us, it only drives your own SEO, and prevents people from knowing where the content is originating from.

    We are completely supportive of other sites publishing our work, as our primary objective is to get our information out as far and as fast as possible. We simply ask that you guys link back to us somewhere on the page, so users (and Google spiders) can see where the content was first published.

    We are also paying out of pocket for the bandwidth on those images, which we recently had to upgrade due to increased syndication.

    We are now trying to reach out to all the major sites that are syndicating us, in an effort to remedy this. I would have sent this to your email address, but I could not find one.

    Again, no worries, and thanks for syndicating our stuff. Just please link back to us in the future.

    Sincerely,

    You are so damn right with your article I give you my personal pulitzer. But in fact, there is no counter movement established because what we shall do is to create a world media and beat the cheating system with its own tricks. I am working on that for 30 years and never could arrange sufficient funding and allieds because of the usual dumpness of capital owners and, the moment something grows big and international lots of bad speeches and jealeous nut brains are coming specially out of that corner some thought to assist.
    Media is retail business since about 40 years. The big world agencies like dpa, reuters and so on are the news providers from which the local media filters news of interest and starts masking on it. Some large media groups got their own international network and live on both, the incoming agencies news and the own, others maintain direct joint ventures with foreign media.
    There is a true saying *Give the folks what the folks are asking for* and world press situation is exactly this. The large media user is of low intelligence and since any media lives mainly on publicity income the quality must be doubtful right from the beginning. This is a true dilema for true media which doesnt want dependencies of publicity and which doesnt want to violate complex issues to the level of rainbowpress.
    Press or news need a worldwide control to prevent manipulations. Commenting and analysing news in public media requieres even more control. So it was the british media responsible that Britain entered into war with Germany at WWII, so it is the Colombian media nowadays seeking literally war with Venezuela, so it was with 9-11 and thousands of other services from media to its financing background.
    Right you mention the internet because there are only two options of the old prohibition of knowledge, either to restrict and closing down or to massively influencing the internet by capital means. Still a 80% of worldpopulation doenst have internet or uses the internet limited by time and application.
    The satelite system of CNN is what we need to make serious trouble to those sofisticated constructors of public opinions everywhere and again it is of utmost importance to make any movement worldwide right on the spot. Trust this issue into the hand of the polititians and they turn it into a war against CO2.
    If you want to fight against media, polititians and stone cold high finance use the human rights and all international codes established. It is not true that we are paralized victims of this and that, just learn to stand up and fight for it without smashing bricks into wrong directions. And revealing after all is already revealed about thousand times its ridiculess, disturbing and offensive, because the revealer of the revealer of the revealer will not understand that changes never took place on truth but on behalf of interests.
    True and good media will be back as when we arrange the economic reality to media. This is another route to go but very complicated indeed.
    Write to me anybody interested to establish a true world media but forget about doing war to this or that. The truth, the naked truth is all what bothers and the best investigative body spread all over. Humanity does need this far more urgent than it seems. I told this during the 90s and we are overrunned by mass media with Irak, 9-11, Palestina, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Venezuela, tons of lies right into our faces because nobody joining the ww action plan.
    So I close with another true saying *you receive what you deserve*

    The perfect economic storm was created when we deviated away from the Reagan Trade Policies for the policies to rally a majority of voters in the environmentalist block of voters , by shutting down and relocating large sectors of raw material and manufacturing that was then relocated By the Multi-National Corporate players who you will find on the donor list below , and financial support was what the 1994-5 WTO FREE TRADE agreement lead to .
    See this donor list , and you will find all the beneficiaries of the Tariff Free Import trade policy , as well as the Environmentalist Interests , which led to the complete merger and consolidation of the retail sector thus consolidation of the wealth of the distribution of this wealth , thereby making a crisis that then would need to be regulated , these politicians think long term and plan out these types of outcomes ; the 2 links below show you who was the greatest beneficiaries of the WTO Free Trade agreement , there heads of the Big Retail Multi-National consolidators make up a larger portion of the list .

    speaking of media over blown lies–Toyota announces massive recall – 2.3 million vehicles in Canada and the US due to accelerator sticking.
    No-one got killed., no major accident–Toyota lost $billions–Americans fear buying the Toyota cars.
    What is the purpose of putting the fear into Americans–did you folks noticed that Japan wants the American military booted out from their lands and is allowing first time citizenship to the chinese and is reusing to send more troops into Afghastan.

    Looking back at the history of man it was the lack of information for the masses that made it easy for those in power to rule virtually as they pleased. Seeing those rulers controlled or created the limited information that was available then. Today we live in the age of the information or is it the disinformation super highway that those in power STILL control. Whether we have little or an abundance of information the powers that be can still manipulate the masses as they will. So the problem is not the information, but the powers that be who have never changed in their desire to control their populations, principly through controlling the supply of information. Which demonstrates the depth of corruption there is in ALL goverments.
    There desire to be as God’s, revered, honoured, with no criticising or questioning of their decisions, to suffer hardships or even to die for THEIR political objectives. History is filled with such oppression by the few upon the many, a history which is filled with conflict and wars. Today we still have that same pattern of human governmental behaviourof control over the masses, except it is now on a GLOBAL scale. Conflicts between nations are even more common place now than ever before, and two of those have ended in World Wars. So information that is more easily attained, and available to those in power have not been the means to resolve problems but to create them.
    Whether it be an abundance of, or the lack of information, the warlike and belligerent behaviour of man continues. Just as the few dominate the many, it has always been the few of society that are aware of the deviousness of of those who rule. They are like a voice crying out in the wilderness, an oasis of reason, a haven of truth, but that is the way it has ALWAYS been. Look around you, does TRUTH rule? It never has, and history and our present world is evidence of that, and just as in the past and present, conflict has always been the end result of the rule of these duplicitious rulers, so the future is already a foregone conclusion, and just as in the past as we sought to wipe out those in opposition to us, we now have the means to do that on a Global scale. Is my reasoning truthful or not? So what is truth?

    The global moral values are decling, so there is no hesitation in promoting bundles of lies. Our national TV channels are also playing an irresponsible role of promoting such lies which are against our national interests. Our media does not try to safeguard the national interests against the false propoganda of the enemies. They often rather support the false propoganda of the enemies.
