German Journalist Blows Whistle On How The CIA Controls The Media

Submitted by Michael Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,  “I was bribed by billionaires, I was bribed by the Americans to report…not exactly the truth.” – Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of one of Germany’s main daily publications, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Some readers will see this and immediately dismiss it as Russian propaganda since the interview appeared on RT. This would be a serious mistake. Whether you want to admit it or not, CIA control of the media in the U.S. and abroad is not conspiracy theory, it is conspiracy fact. Carl Bernstein, who is best known for his reporting on Watergate, penned a 25,000 word article in Rolling Stone after spending six months looking at the relationship of the CIA and the press during the Cold War years.

What Exactly Are the Spy Agencies Actually DOING with their Bag of Dirty Tricks?

Newly-released documents from Edward Snowden show that the British spy agency GCHQ has developed numerous offensive digital tools. But what exactly are they doing with these dirty tricks? We think it’s important to think through the specific possibilities, in order to gain an understanding of how pernicious these manipulations can be. We quote verbatim (in black) the names and descriptions of some of these tools – some of which Glenn Greenwald didn’t highlight in his report.  We then provide descriptions in blue of potential misuses of such tools. Then we discuss how likely such misuses really are.

Preface: NSA Lied When It Said It Doesn’t Record Content Last week, Washington Post reporter Barton Gellman –  who has reviewed many of the documents leaked by Ed Snowden – told PBS’ Frontline: Who’s e-mailing whom? Who’s texting whom? Who’s doing Skype calls with whom? They’re collecting a lot of information, a lot of content of phone calls. They’re actually recording the voices— not for all of our calls, but for a lot of U.S. telephone calls. Background. Okay, now you’re ready for the main story … Spying Is Meant to Crush Citizens’ Dissent, Not Catch Terrorists While many Americans understand why the NSA is conducting mass surveillance of U.S. citizens, some are still confused about what’s really going on.In his new book, No Place to Hide, Glenn Greenwald writes: The perception that invasive surveillance is confined only to a marginalised and deserving group of those “doing wrong” – […] Read More

2013: LIE VS. LIE: MAD IN AMERICA

As the mainstream pretends to catch up on the criminality of government in this country, it is still playing softball with what is happening in order to maintain a sense of calm when Americans are beginning to realize that despotism and the battlefield is being set up in their own back yards. We need to now ask the question, how is it that America is a free country and a beacon to the rest of the world, when it is looking more and more like our lives are all part of some noir spy novel played out in real life where the enemy is the citizenry and the declaration has been made that you must watch your actions or be disappeared, jailed or worse. We have questioned the validity of elections. We have asked ourselves if the free press is really free when the citizen press is now under the eye of big […] Read More
