Media covert ops and the alternate universe
—George W Bush and Obama would never have emerged out of obscurity. Bush would be, at best, the part owner of a baseball team; and Obama, a man pounding the streets of Chicago trying to make a name for himself—

This article is based on my 30 years as a reporter, during which I’ve had many private conversations with mainstream journalists and editors. This isn’t speculation. This is how the game works.
Most media covert ops and cover-ups involve the omission of information. What is not published is important. What is published is cover, diversion, distraction, and limited hangout (the exposure of partial and relatively harmless truth).
The truth is, the US government helped create ISIS, and funds it and backs it and weaponizes it? That truth is never revealed. What we get is: the US is fighting against ISIS.
The truth is, the US medical system kills 225,000 people a year like clockwork? What we get is: modern medicine is a living miracle, and new stunning breakthroughs are right around the corner.
As I explained on my most recent Fade To Black radio segment with Jimmy Church, there is a potential contagion factor. If one boggling buried truth were revealed via major media, if it were exposed, and if reporters pounded on it week after week, the public would start to wake up and think: well, maybe there are other truths the media are covering up.
For example, fluoride. If the public became aware that the EPA’s own union of scientists has been attacking fluoride since 1999, labeling the chemical as a cause of cancer and lowered IQ, the next thought would be: are there other chemicals we don’t know anything about? What about pesticides? What about medical drugs? What about vaccines? How harmful are they?
And if major media did, in fact, start pounding on pesticides and exposing the truth about their harm, the contagion factor would escalate—and so forth and so on…
And if this contagion factor had caught on, say, 20 years ago in the press, we would now be living a different world.
An alternative universe, so to speak. Things would be vastly different. Heavy hitters would be in jail. Their trials would have been major spectacles. People would have a completely different view of government and corporate crimes.
The dangers to life and limb would have been laid out in full view. Reforms would have been enacted, under great pressure.
In other words, if the press had been doing its relentless job, on behalf of the people, life would not be the same.
You need a bit of imagination to see it, to see what could be.
This isn’t fluff or speculation. This is the hard reality.
Let me give you another example. When the Globalist trade treaty, NAFTA, was signed into being in the mid-1990s, if a mainstream news editor told his reporters, “Look, we know this is madness. We know this is going to gut American jobs and hollow out a big piece of the US economy, and you sons of bitches are going to go out and document this, chapter and verse, for the next five years, in towns and cities, and we’re going to publish it, piece by piece, and put it all together and show the people what’s being done to them and their families and their future—“ If that had happened, other news outlets would have picked up on it, too, and Bush One and Clinton would now be pariahs of the first order. They’d be Al Capones. They’d be illustrations of political criminals held up for all to see and remember. And NAFTA would have been repealed, and the Globalist march to predatory corporate triumph would have been squelched like a bug.
And we would be living in an alternate universe. Jobs in the US would be plentiful. Bush Two and Obama would never have emerged out of obscurity. Bush would still be part owner of a Texas baseball team and Obama would still be pounding the streets of Chicago, trying to make a name for himself as a community organizer. Hillary Clinton would be trying to raise pittances for a barely surviving foundation, and she would have offloaded Bill years ago as a useless partner.
“You’re radioactive, baby. Close the door on your way out.”
Believe me, I know why the press doesn’t do its job. I know all the reasons. But the point is, reporters were originally tasked, in a Republic, with exposing the inevitable excesses and crimes of politicians and big businessmen.
And now…we have the exponential rise, online, of the independent reporter. The tilt of the news see-saw is changing. The whole enterprise is reverting to its original purpose.
It’s not too late. It’s never too late. The game is afoot. The outcome is never a done deal.
There are moments when, if you want to, you can see and feel and touch a different present and future. You can feel it hovering in the air, waiting to be born.
The news the public sees is not news. It never was. But the endless repetition of it makes it news in people’s minds. They can’t imagine it could be something else.
That’s the illusion.
The lies, the omissions, the cover stories, the anchors, the style of presentation, the studio sets, the collection of so-called experts—it all collaborates to produce an effect in the audience: this is what news is; anything else would not be news.
Reality is built, maintained, funded, and sold.
Actually, reality is as elastic as taffy. It is always on the verge of becoming something quite different. It takes great effort to hold it in one shape and keep it there.
From the time of the earliest television anchors, men like John Daly and Edward Murrow; and going back much further into radio news, and then back into print news, the key has been: pretended authority.
What makes the apparition of authority spring up like a rabbit out of a hat? What makes the public believe they are reading or hearing or watching authority in action?
In news, authority has great leverage. It can slice information off the top of a very deep cake and present it as the way-things-are, as the whole depth, as the entire terrain in which significant things are happening.
And when this basic thin slice is handed, with varied decorations, to the public every day, the public sees only that. Believes only that.
Major media cultivate employees who can deliver authority.
But that star is fading.
There are now many ways of conveying information. Independent reporters are just beginning to discover and plumb and imagine and invent how they can overcome the tower of fake authority. How they can deliver actual news.
Many styles of approach are coming into being—and I’m not just talking about technological innovations. I’m talking about personal approaches. I’m talking about what the news could and will be, when individuals—more of more of them—see they can launch and project their own energies along with deeper and deeper fact. Launch their own energies, their own voices, their own reactions to authoritarian lies, their own passions, their own, yes, art. Because news is art. It is art with fact. It is art with discovery. It is unlimited.
All this is in the process of happening, before our eyes.
The new day isn’t coming. It’s here.
The android freak show is closing down.
