The Mainstream Media News Broadcasts


A contemporary dictator wishing to establish power would not need to do anything so obviously sinister as banning the news: he or she would only have to see to it that news organizations broadcast a flow of random-sounding bulletins in great numbers but with little explanation of context, within an agenda that kept changing, without giving any sense of the ongoing relevance of an issue that had seemed pressing only a short while before, the whole interspersed with constant updates about the colourful antics of murderers and film stars. This would be quite enough to undermine most people’s capacity to grasp political reality—as well as any resolve they might otherwise have summoned to alter it. The status quo could confidently remain forever undisturbed by a flood of, rather than a ban on, news. ~Alain de Botton (1 December 2014) The Difficulties of Consuming News, TheWorldPost

People are susceptible to accept what they are told by authority figures—those people at the top who claim to have more knowledge and rights than the rest of us: politicians, judges, enforcement officers, and others—and choose to go with the flow. People are indoctrinated to believe in the authority and necessity of the state. Of course, the machinery of the state is often utilized to crush any movement that questions the authority of those who own economic power. They behave god-like with the moral authority to determine who will live or die both at home and abroad.


The controllers can and do label anyone a terrorist and arbitrarily harass them. Government apologists are keen to label anyone who takes a cynical stance toward politics, mistrusts authority, endorses democratic practices, and displays an inquisitive, imaginative outlook as worthy of a trip to a psychiatric institution. Governments are using the ‘politics of fear’ to crush dissent. The terrorist threat is being used to reverse restrictions on intelligence agencies’ mass surveillance capabilities which further undermines individual privacy rights. In the United Kingdom and France, authorities are seeking ever broader monitoring powers.

Thomas Merton

The public’s sources of information are exclusively the mainstream media. That what is presented urge them to believe and accept any and all authority figures, politicians and advertisers. No critical thinking skills are encouraged – or allowed, for that matter. The masses rely on the mainstream media story, made up statistics, spin, illusions and omissions like it’s their life, and don’t know what to think until they get the mainstream media signal.

The populace is informed by servile embedded journalists (stenographers) and analysts via the mainstream media news broadcasts. There is no deviation from the official narrative. All news is fabricated to propagate the government’s agenda. There is but obedience, discipline and servility. The masses willingly and readily embrace well-rehearsed oft-repeated clichés. The mainstream media news broadcasts are laden with disinformation, propaganda to advance hidden and corporate agendas that do not have the public’s best interests at heart. The mainstream media distract the public from newsworthy stories with sensational, nonsensical information which is of no importance or relevance whatsoever to anyone.

The illusions of law, order and authority; prosperity and happiness; choice and freedom; truth; time; separateness have been staged before us as a campaign to encourage blind acquiescence to the machinations of the matrix. In an attempt to dis-empower us, they demand our conformity and obedience, but we must remember that all of this is merely an elaborate sales pitch. They can’t sell what we don’t care to buy. But only if you are awake to their machinations.


The answer is to wake up and abhor all forms of authority and control. Don’t believe anything you hear or see on the mainstream media. After all, it is the political and corporate powers that control the mainstream media. Remain circumspect and question all authority. They don’t have our best interest at heart. They don’t care about us, and never did.


To question your reality in today’s world is an indication of sanity. In an ever delusional world where mass murder is conducted under the guise of a fake war on terror, where mass-produced food poisons and where medicine kills, it is a sign of great strength of character to challenge the authority figures around you. It is a sign of something pure and special if you can preserve your open mind and curiosity in the midst of so much vile propaganda. It is a sign of courage to ask the tough questions that the mainstream media journalists fear to touch.
