The Dying Corporate Media Vilifies Alex Jones, Rand Paul, & The Rising Rage Against The Empire

Op Ed News
June 12, 2010

A new MSNBC documentary called ‘Rise of The New Right’ that is set to air next Wednesday falsely paints the Tea Party’s growing influence in electoral politics as a precursor to a new age of racist rage. The documentary, hosted by Chris screwball Matthews, also targets popular radio show host, documentarian, and one of the internet’s rising stars, Alex Jones. Infowars.com received a copy of the script for the piece from an MSNBC insider, which reveals the program’s soft propaganda, and deliberate lies about the nature of the citizen backlash against the corrupt government in D.C, and the banks and corporations who rule it.

The usual Establishment rhetoric against government critics is used throughout the production, derogatory terms like “conspiracy theorist”, “crazy”, and “racist” are frequently used. Instead of examining the rational reasons for why people on the right are furious, such as the government’s dictatorial laws since 9/11, its dismal economic and foreign policies, and the overall failure in the leadership of the political class to halt the federal debt, Matthews and company seek emotional and tribal causes for the popularity of the Tea Party. It takes a bogus slant of the raison dêtre for the Tea Party, and one that doesn’t enlighten anyone in the public.

The documentary’s most critical mistake is that it singularly concentrates on the rising anger from the right, specifically, the recent electoral victories by Tea Party figures like Rand Paul, but fails to mention that there is a general popular anger against the status quo in Washington D.C., which manifests itself in the growing voter dissatisfaction with the two main political parties. Dylan Ratigan, whose show on MSNBC debuted last summer, is probably the only individual on MSNBC who hasn’t used his platform as a democratic swinging bat to target government critics as “racists” and “crazies.” Olbermann, Maddow, and Matthews have all taken this particular line against Tea Party participants.

Indeed, true bi-partisan outrage against Barack Obama, and the Republicrat leadership is never heard on MSNBC, the supposed representative of the “liberal” media. So the common disposition between Fox News and MSNBC is not correct. The two networks are not competitors, but equals. Both represent elitist interests, and protect the legitimacy and credibility of the current government in Washington, where dominant corporations from every industry, along with the Military Industrial Complex, and Wall St. banks have unlimited access to the public purse.

Not one mainstream network is accurately documenting the split between the American people and the American elite. Populist critiques of the Democrats and Republicans are never given air time. But democratic loyalists still have the audacity to say that since Fox News spotlights Tea Party protests it is the spokesmen of the right. What they fail to point out is that Fox News doesn’t authentically express popular rage from the right, rather, it presents the corporate spin of people’s frustrations. And the same is true for republican loyalists when they speak about the oppression of the “liberal” media.

What both groups of loyalists have trouble grasping is that there isn’t a right-wing media, and there isn’t a liberal media. There is only the corporate, elitist media, with two sides who are allowed to criticize each other, but must not breach the boundaries of what’s considered legitimate talking points. Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman analyzed this reality in the media long ago.

There is zero media coverage given to the views of the “silenced majority” as Amy Goodman says. This majority is not made up of liberals, or conservatives, but political independents, and rational citizens who strongly believe in the principle that government is ruled by the consent of the governed. What they believe and think is almost never highlighted by the pro-Establishment mainstream media.

They consider the separation between church and state as one of the most important elements in a free country, they are critical of the Empire and its corrupt beneficiaries, they’re fed up with Wall St. and corporate influence in politics, and they want the reversal of laws like the the Patriot Act, as well as the prosecution of American leaders for illegal torture, spying, and war crimes. You’ll be hard-pressed to hear Chris screwball Matthews give voice to any of these ideas in his highly unpopular broadcasts. In fact, you’ll hear support for the exact opposite of such ideas. As Paul Joseph Watson writes:

“The establishment press anoints itself as some kind of trusted guardian of the safe and serene status quo and a bulwark against dangerous political extremists intent on violence and bloodshed. In reality, the corporate media, and particularly MSNBC, which is owned by General Electric, a military-industrial complex giant that makes obscene profits from developing weapons that kill millions of innocent people around the world, routinely promotes the most barbaric lies and propaganda which directly lead to violence on a mass scale.It was corporate media outlets like MSNBC who sold the lie of weapons of mass destruction that led to the slaughter of over a million Iraqis.

It was corporate media outlets like MSNBC who sold Americans on the acceptance of torture, leading to the Abu Ghraib abuse scandal and similar black sites all over the world that still exist in which innocent men, women and children are brutalized on a daily basis.”

The same corporate media that lied to the American people about the concocted story of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction is now lying about the danger posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Mighty and Powerful American Military. MSNBC’s coverage of U.S. and Iran relations is full of rumors, and baseless fears, much of them taken from the mouths of leading neocons, and other spokesmen for Israel and America’s empire. And their cowardice, and lack of journalistic integrity was shown once again after Israel’s criminal raid of a humanitarian aid ship earlier this month.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
