Remember when Bill Clinton signed the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which let 6 corporations control 90% of all media and the information you hear?

This infographic created by Jason at Frugal Dad shows that almost all media comes from the same six sources.

That’s consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983.

NOTE: This infographic is from 2001 and is missing some key transactions. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn’t own AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t affiliated with them.

But the fact that a few companies own everything demonstrates “The Illusion Of Choice”, Frugal Dad says. While some big sites, like Digg and Reddit aren’t owned by any of the corporations, Time Warner owns news sites read by millions of Americans every year.

Amber Lyon, a former CNN correspondent, says authoritarian regimes including Bahrain pay the news network to provide favorable coverage and censor its content.

 Journalist Amber Lyon Turned Whistleblower

Former CNN correspondent turned Whistleblower, Amber Lyon, exposes how the network is earning money from oppressive regimes in exchange for creating and airing content that casts a favorable light on the regimes. She also revealed CNN International refused to air CNN’s own award-winning documentary, ‘iRevolution’, a documentary exposing the Bahrain regime’s brutal crackdown on pro-democracy protesters.

Instead of watch-dogging governments around the world, CNN is earning money from them, producing what might as well be called ‘Infomercials for Dictators’, sponsored shows and content that cast a positive light on some of the world’s most oppressive regimes.

The news organization is defrauding unsuspecting viewers and its own journalists who often risk their lives to expose those same oppressive regimes.

The ‘Most Trusted Name in News’ must ultimately decide whether it’s in the business of government propaganda or journalism.

“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed. Everything else is public relations.” ~ George Orwell

Back in March 2011, CNN sent a four person team to Bahrain to cover the Arab Spring. Once there, the crew was the subject of extreme intimidation amongst other things, but they were able to record some fantastic footage. As Glenn Greenwald of the UK’s Guardian writes in his blockbuster article from September 4th 2012:

“In the segment, Lyon interviewed activists as they explicitly described their torture at the hands of government forces, while family members recounted their relatives’ abrupt disappearances. She spoke with government officials justifying the imprisonment of activists. And the segment featured harrowing video footage of regime forces shooting unarmed demonstrators, along with the mass arrests of peaceful protesters. In sum, the early 2011 CNN segment on Bahrain presented one of the starkest reports to date of the brutal repression embraced by the US-backed regime.

Despite these accolades, and despite the dangers their own journalists and their sources endured to produce it, CNN International (CNNi) never broadcast the documentary. Even in the face of numerous inquiries and complaints from their own employees inside CNN, it continued to refuse to broadcast the program or even provide any explanation for the decision. To date, this documentary has never aired on CNNi.

Having just returned from Bahrain, Lyon says she “saw first-hand that these regime claims were lies, and I couldn’t believe CNN was making me put what I knew to be government lies into my reporting.” Here is a segment of the Bahrain report that Amber Lyon and her team put together. CNNi refused to allow it to air because the Bahrain Government had paid them not to show it.

Here is a segment of the Bahrain report that Amber Lyon and her team put together. CNNi refused to allow it to air because the Bahrain Government had paid them not to show it.

When Amber Lyon recognized the extent of the reasoning, she challenged CNN. CNN told her to be quiet, and began to view her as a risk. She knew, and found out, too much.

Amber is now trying to tell the story, the real story, of what is going on behind the closed doors of US Media entities. Amber has created her own website, and additionally as noted in the Guardian Article she is trying to share the truth of the deceptions.

What Amber Lyon describes is exactly the reason why CNN never aired the Nick Robertson interview with Muhammed Al Zawahiri in Egypt.

Obama’s Treatment Of The Mainstream Media

 Political  Comments Off on Obama’s Treatment Of The Mainstream Media
Feb 252017
 

Remember when Obama framed the Mainstream Media as the opposition party?

“We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,” said Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, in a telephone interview on Sunday. “As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

Obama's Treatment Of The Mainstream Media

Attacking the news media is a time-honored White House tactic but to an unusual degree, the Obama administration has narrowed its sights to one specific organization, the Fox News Channel, calling it, in essence, part of the political opposition.

“We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,” said Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, in a telephone interview on Sunday. “As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

Her comments are only the latest in the volatile exchange between the administration and the top-rated network, which is owned by the News Corporation, controlled by Rupert Murdoch. Last month, Roger Ailes, the chairman of Fox News, and David Axelrod, a senior adviser to President Obama, met for coffee in New York, in what Politico, which last week broke that news, labeled a “Fox summit.”

While neither party has said what was discussed, some have speculated that a truce, or at least an adjustment in tone, was at issue. (Mr. Ailes and Mr. Obama reportedly reached a temporary accord after a meeting in mid-2008.) But shots are still being fired, which animates the idea that both sides see benefits in the feud.

Fox seems to relish the controversy.

“Instead of governing, the White House continues to be in campaign mode, and Fox News is the target of their attack mentality,” Michael Clemente, the channel’s senior vice president for news, said in a statement on Sunday. “Perhaps the energy would be better spent on the critical issues that voters are worried about.”

Or how about the time, back in 2008, when OBAMA Kicked reporters off his plane because their papers had endorsed John McCain?

President Trump Signs Bill To End Obama Coal Mining Regulation

 Political  Comments Off on President Trump Signs Bill To End Obama Coal Mining Regulation
Feb 172017
 

Yesterday President Trump signed a Bill to save the coal industry. Then he distracted everyone with an EPIC press conference. Today the hateful, unhinged, angry left is still screaming about his treatment of “Very Fake News” CNN while the coal industry charges ahead.

The man is a genius!

Fulfilling a promise he made to coal miners during his campaign, President Trump signed legislation Thursday ending a key Obama administration coal mining rule.

Trump signed legislation that nixes the Office of Surface Mining’s Stream Protection Rule, a set of Interior Department regulations that put expensive new requirements on coal companies.

Surrounded by lawmakers and coal miners, Trump called the regulations “another terrible job-killing rule” at a signing ceremony in the Oval Office.

“In eliminating this rule, I am continuing to keep my promise to the American people to get rid of wasteful regulations that do absolutely nothing but slow down the economy, hamstring companies, push jobs to other countries,” Trump said.

“This is a major threat to your jobs and we’re going to get rid of this threat,” he added. “We’re going to fight for you.”

The House and the Senate approved the measure through the seldom-used Congressional Review Act, which permits lawmakers to roll back any regulation the Obama administrated implemented from June to his last day in office.

Regulators finalized the stream protection rule in December, but spent most of Obama’s tenure constructing it.

The rules required coal companies to conduct extensive monitoring of any waterways that could potentially be impacted by mining operations.

The legislation is the second Trump has signed into law which undoes the Obama administration’s environmental regulation. He signed a Congressional Review Act resolution Tuesday which nullifies a financial disclosure requirement for energy companies.

“…Sean Spicer was correct. The crowd grew significantly just as the event began. Yes, this was mostly due to the crowd being intentionally delayed from attending. Yes, tens of thousands of people could not get through the screenings. Yes, the federal workers and DC Park and Security leadership made attendance more difficult than any previous inauguration.

Yes, every imaginable tool and technique was utilized last week to provide the maximum level of crisis and discomfort….”

You might have seen the PBS timelapse video:

That video is Fake News!

They suggest (“We’ve created a time lapse of 7 hours of footage on the mall, from the beginning of the morning through Donald Trump’s inauguration.”) a full time-lapse in that clip…it is not.

You can actually see the edit (cross fade) clearly (at 0:46). They intentionally cut the footage which shows the biggest crowd.

“Black Lives Matter and other groups forced the shutdown early Friday morning of at least two inauguration security checkpoints, including the one where Sollars said she was attacked — as demonstrators followed through on threats to disrupt President-elect Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremonies. The Black Lives Matter protesters at first started chaining themselves to fences in front of a checkpoint near the Capitol, after which the Secret Service closed the gates and shut down the entrance.

“We are here to let people know this presidency is not legit. It goes against hundreds of years of democracy — black lives matter,” BLM DC’s Tracye Redd told FoxNews.com.

At one point, the activists repeated the cry, “Shut it down!”

Officers afterward directed spectators to other entrances, though both checkpoints were later reopened. The efforts were part of an operation apparently under the umbrella of DisruptJ20, which vowed to blockade and shut down security checkpoints”

Just one more thing on the Russians hacking the election.

How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders?

How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?
 

Just One More Thing On The Russians Hacking The Election

Fearless – This is the face of a man who will never back down.

What happened last night was pre-planned to make Trump look like the bad guy and Trump supporters violent, but it backfired.

Here’s why:
In the video below you can see the journalists go along with the narrative they were given by the Clinton campaign, they were ready to make this story into “Trump supporters BRUTALLY ASSAULT protester at Nevada rally”; they had their prepared lines, “Trump incites violence” “This is all his fault” etc.

What they didn’t count on were two things:

1 – Somebody shouting “GUN!” and Trump being rushed off stage by the SS, which made everything look like an assassination attempt more than anything else.

2 – Trump supporters keeping the slimey CNN cameraman from getting close to the action as seen here so he was unable to get good shots of the man being hit by supporters/police, which was supposed to make him look like the victim (despite Wikileaks proof of him working for the DNC).

The original script was ruined by these two occurrences, that’s why the journalists’ narration of the incident sounds so contrived and counter-intuitive.

The videos were supposed to paint Trump as the culprit, instead they show Trump as the victim of an assassination attempt. Never mind the guy didn’t have a gun, that’s irrelevant: when people see the images from what happened it looks 100% like a genuine assassination attempt, no amount of talk from the journalists can change that.

This was supposed to be the last big hit on Trump, instead he came off looking once again like Donald Reagan, and the MSM as complete liars. Thanks KeK, crisis averted.

Edit: I meant Ronald Reagan, not Donald Reagan. Freudian slip?

Keep this in mind. Trump continued the rally after a credible assassination attempt. Hillary cut her rally to 7 minutes because of RAIN.

Media Censorship Caught On Tape

 Political  Comments Off on Media Censorship Caught On Tape
Sep 052016
 

In a blatant example of anti-Trump media censorship, Reuters ordered its cameraman to cut live footage of Trump receiving praise from African-American Bishop Wayne T. Jackson in Detroit.

Vampires can not take too much light!

The incident occurred as Jackson presented Trump with a shawl, a bible, and offered his prayers as the black audience cheered and clapped.

Perhaps aware of the devastating impact the optics of this moment would have on the media’s efforts to demonize Trump as a racist bigot, a voice is heard off-camera saying, “He’s getting a shawl!”

The cameraman then says, “I’m shooting this, I don’t care what they say….I’ll take a demotion for this…. you?”

“Shut it down,” insists the director,” followed by another voice asking, “Shut this down?”

“Yes Michael, do it,” orders the director.

We then hear the word “blackout” and the camera shakes before the live feed is cut.

“Reuters was primary video feed for the event, all other video delivery services were coming from the Reuters feed. When Reuters shut down, all other outlets lost the broadcast,” reports the Conservative Treehouse.

Right Side Broadcasting responded to the controversy by offering the cameraman a job, promising to pay him much more than Reuters.

This is by no means the first example of media censorship when it comes to coverage of Trump’s live events.

Last month, we reported on how ABC cut the live feed of Trump’s event in Daytona Beach, Florida right as Trump began to talk about Hillary Clinton’s connection to ISIS.

Last month, CNN reporter Brianna Keilar began talking about Hillary’s support for anti-crime legislation in the 90’s which contributed to the “mass incarceration” of black people before the video was immediately cut.

As Justin Raimondo revealed in an article for the LA Times, the mainstream media has openly dispensed with the pretense objectivity during this election cycle in an attempt to sink Trump’s campaign.

CNN Cancels DR. Drew's Show

The Clinton News Network Cancels Dr. Drew

DR. Drew’s show is cancelled just days after questioning Crooked Hillary’s health… coincidence?

Dr. Drew Pinsky has been let go days after questioning Hillary Clinton’s health. Doctor Drew was so “gravely concerned” about Clinton’s health he decided to speak publicly about after reviewing her medical records. CNN EVP Ken Jautz said: “Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming”. Dr. Drew’s final show will air on September 22.

Dr. Drew Pinsky is an American board-certified internist, addiction medicine specialist. and says the former Secretary of State may be receiving inadequate health care. Pinsky said the treatment Hillary received is “bizarre” and would explain the “weird side-effects” (chronic coughing, seizure like episodes, trouble climbing stairs) voters have been noticing for months.
