For those who have any doubt that CNN is state-run media, you simply have not done your homework. Before we get into the footage in question, let me remind you of a former CNN Award Winning Journalist named Amber Lyon. Wikipedia reports:
On September 29, 2012, Lyon appeared on the Infowars program hosted by American Alex Jones. She described her investigation of how the US ally Bahrain was committing human rights abuses, but said that CNN and the US government
pressured her to suppress the news. She said that Bahrain paid CNN for positive news coverage. Lyon said that Kazakhstan and Georgia also paid for positive coverage by CNN.
Let's also review a famous YouTube video that shows a correspondent reporting in the Desert Storm conflict with a fake backdrop, apparently from a studio set. If you have never seen this video of Charles Jaco, please do yourself a favor and watch it and make the judgment for yourself.
If you do some smart searching on YouTube, you can find numerous videos like the one above. This is nothing new. I would not personally want to be in the middle of a situation that required gas masks, but if you are reporting from the comfort of a secure location, there is no need to misinform the American public for the sake of ratings.
So is CNN part of the 4th branch of the federal government?
The 4th branch of government is what I like to call "state-run" media because they are instrumental in swaying the opinion of the American people. Without this unofficial branch of government, the three official branches would cease to be effective. Why? Because people would actually know the truth.
Evidently there is a gentleman named "Danny" who has reported for CNN from Syria. I do not watch CNN, in fact I refuse to. So I stumbled upon this information at The Friends of Syria blog.
Friends of Syria reports:
Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention.
The primary "witness" that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments. Recent video evidence proves that "Syria Danny," the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar.
While Assad is definitely a tyrant like any head of state, a US invasion of the country is a worst case scenario for the people living there.
By pointing out that the mainstream media is orchestrating their entire coverage of this incident, we are not denying that there is a tremendous amount of death and violence in Syria right now. However, we are showing that the mainstream media version of events is scripted and staged propaganda.
The following video shows him contradicting himself while off air, and even asking crew members to "get the gunfire sounds ready" for his video conference with Anderson Cooper on CNN.
After stumbling upon this, I felt the need to share it because whether these interviews are scripted and staged or not, we definitely know that the media is very influential in public opinion. I DO NOT speak Arabic so I can't vouch for the translations, but I will tell you that I did some fact checking and believe that this interpretation is on the money. It would seem that CNN is still faking stories. With that said the above video is from March of 2012, but I have no reason to believe that the September 2013 version of CNN is any more honest and reliable.
I'd encourage you to go read the entire story and see two additional videos at Friends of Syria.
I think this is very important to keep filed in the back of your mind. When the media are complicit with the federal government,
then there is really no way to form an accurate opinion about what is going on. Note: This is one reason I rely a lot on foreign media. I know our media is corrupt so I'll take my chances.
We can watch the government push and prod the media in this country to their liking as Amber Lyon reported, yet no one thinks our government is so corrupt that it would stage a false flag event, or manufacture evidence to present to congress.
Please notice that you never hear congressional leaders talk about things like these YouTube videos, forged birth certificates or any of the hot topics of alternative media. Do they not know about these things?
Sure they do. They know about these things. It is their job to know.
Their silence simply signals that they are complicit in the cover up.
That is the truth America. It is also why you should not be surprised if our congress goes against the American people, and our military, and sides with Obama/Al Qaeda/Al-Nusra in Syria.
People need to wake up. Trust no one and seek your own truth.
