Night King is liberal – manipulation of media narrative

Posted by Picard578 on October 20, 2017

One has to be careful when reading media narrative. Not only do thoughts shape language, but language shapes thoughts as well. The exact same thing can seem very different depending on the language used. Therefore, one has always to think about *what* is being said, and try to eliminate *how* it is being said. Consider these statements, which say basically the exact same thing:
– “Immigrants are people with all rights. We have to accept them and help them. We need to respect their culture, and help them to continue practicing their customs.”
– “Immigrants will come in and steal jobs with cheap labour when they bother working at all. They will bring their customs and cause conflict.”

Of course, the first statement seems much nicer, much more humane. But they both say the same thing, and the second statement is more direct, more honest, and thus superior to first one. To better illustrate the point, here is a pin from Pinterest:

Media Manipulations

Posted by Picard578 on December 6, 2015

This is not just New York Times. I’m going to adress it in more detail in one of my scheduled-for-writing articles, but media censorship is alive and kicking, positively bouyant, in the “democratic” West. And once you know the structure of the media (which I’ll also explain), you’ll understand why.

Patrice Ayme's Thoughts

More than ten years ago, I pointed in comments that President Wilson was a racist, and that this had a dominant effect on policy, in the USA, and worldwide. To this day. The New York Times blocked all such comments. The New York Times thus gained more than years in the public revelation that president Wilson was an extreme racist, who implemented racist policies, from inside the USA, onto the world stage, on the grandest scale. Not just this, but racism was, arguably the most important effect of the Wilson presidency. When that policy was not anti-black, it was anti-French. It was also extremely crucial in supporting exterminationist racist oligarchy in Germany, which peaked with World War Two and exterminationist policies. The intimate conviction of exterminationist Germans, thanks to Wilson, was that the USA was on their side. And indeed it was, in many ways.

The New York Times is considered…

Take action now to break the media silence on TTIP

Posted by Picard578 on December 3, 2015

Six media corporations own all the major media in the West. Thus lack of coverage on TTIP by the mainstream media is not surprising. This alone is enough to negate any claims about “unbiased” media helping “democracy”, or indeed the claim that we really are living in a democracy. Democracy with no right to freedom of information is no democracy at all.

Stop TTIP Manchester

Last month 250 people, including MPs and trade union leaders, were arrested in Brussels while peacefully protesting against TTIP. But this was not covered by the UK mainstream media.

We can beat the media blackout. The UK’s most read print news source is our 1,100 local papers. Please write to your local editor to make sure people in your area hear about TTIP.

TTIP is being negotiated in secret – clearly, policy makers do not want people to know what they are planning to do to our environment, our public services, and our democracy. If we want to beat this undemocratic deal, we need to make sure that the public knows about TTIP and the impact it would have on our lives.

Local papers are read by more than 30 million people in the UK every day. Please take action to make sure people hear about TTIP.
