So you think network news is legitimate? Do you really think your favorite news anchor reports what’s really happening in the world, or are the majority of all major news stories completely contrived? And, if the majority of news stories are in fact contrived, for what ultimate purpose(s)? The question most often posed is: Why would they fake it?
The answer may shock you!
Modern news anchors and so-called journalists are not reporters, rather they are the witches, warlocks, and sorcerers of old, handmaidens to the rich and powerful. The idea of actual journalism is a crock, because if the media sorcerers are manufacturing their own content, then there is nothing to investigate, no real facts to collate and collect, other than the ones fabricated. Rather than boiling cauldrons, wielding wands or reciting ancient incantations, theirs are the tools of psychological operations, bolstered by modern digital technology, and judicious use of numerology, primary color coding, and Neural-linguistic programming.
FAKE SOLD AS REAL
Now in the 21st century, the dissemination of mass media through television is the news sorcerers delivery system of choice to cast spells upon unsuspecting mass audiences.
The 20th century adept Dion Fortune defined magic as the ability to transform consciousness at will. In a modern context, what is meant by the term magic, as it relates to the television news? What one sees broadcast on the screen is not for purposes of entertainment or to inform, but rather to transform minds through artificial stimuli into perceiving the world in certain ways over others, and above all generating profits for the stockholders through the selling of advertising. Social change starts off as an idea that is later manifested into material reality, and only through force of will can mass consciousness be molded into passive obedience and profit generating behaviors.
Television news is the most effective tool yet devised for molding public perceptions. Examining television news stories as prime examples, both old and new, major and minor, we shall demonstrate now and in future posts how and why each particular story featured on network news or heavily featured by the media, in fact represents carefully constructed psychological operations; a magic spell created for the express purpose of transforming mass consciousness in ways favorable to profiteering elites, and to those in positions of powerful governance.
The idea of televised mainstream news reporting anything ‘real’ is in fact bunk.
Have you never wondered how it is all mainstream sources regurgitate identical details simultaneously and seemingly instantaneously? This is because each story is scripted like Hollywood movies, who employ their own brand of sorcery. Not only do the news sorcerers seek to win hearts and minds, they covet to possess wallets and purses as well. Have you never considered the time and emotional investment in consuming mainstream television media may be detrimental in promoting a healthy perception of reality, drawing vital mental energies better applied elsewhere? Further still, have you never considered mainstream news stories may be manufactured out of whole cloth, that your favorite news anchors, both local and national, might perhaps lie on to you on a daily and nightly basis?
Have you also never considered the success of mainstream news relies entirely on maximum emotional investment, and that through this, immense advertising revenues are generated. Once wholeheartedly believed on a mass scale, and repeated verbally around water coolers in the workplace, news stories starting off as imaginative figments become integral elements of perceived reality. All major news stories are prepackaged and manufactured for maximum dramatic impact, to grab your attention long enough to sell you the products advertised.
CONTENT IS KING IN THE NEWS BUSINESS
Millions of dollars are invested in maximizing profitability for television advertising real estate worth billions. Is it so far fetched to think media conglomerates would not manufacture dramatic news stories and publicly present them as genuine events, generating consistently high ratings, in turn stuffing stockholders portfolios with maximized profits? The biggest secret the media sorcerers manage to keep hidden from the public at large is that the elite families owning controlling interest create their own content and then feature their own family members in the manufactured events. Many times the question is asked: Well, if events are faked, how would they manage to keep it a secret, wouldn’t someone talk? They manage to keep their method of operation under wraps, simply because the pool of participants is small compared to the size of the overall population, and remains compartmentalized. Conspiracies arise out of mutual self-interest, and if the media sorcerers can all benefit from producing an event that will generate millions of dollars over a period of months, or even years, then why not decide to work together, ensuring a profitable win-win for everyone involved? Governments and their various agencies such as Homeland Security, CIA, FBI, NSA, and the media sorcerers work hand in hand, based solely on this philosophy, the world of business linked by common economic bonds.
On the public consumer end, fickle attention is cleverly fixated, false perceptions and unquestioning consent manufactured, through the imposition of new ideas transformed from formerly held beliefs. Behaving accordingly, the public purchases and happily consumes, all to impress complete strangers with material goods they probably didn’t genuinely need, complying with new ideas and new laws to which they have been conditioned through gross manipulation and external social pressures.
With this new public perception set into place, laws are enacted, school and college textbooks rewritten, workplace cultures reshaped, all without anyone asking how or why this came about in the first place, and for what ultimate benefit. News stories are often tailored to a particular target audience they hope to effect. This demographic selection is an important part of the news sorcerers bag of tricks. The more they know about chosen target audiences, the easier it is to cement images, sound and message into a cohesive meme. Through repetition the spell is magnified into mythical proportions, becoming a permanent fixture in terms of cultural identity. Shortly, in future posts, we shall, through close examination and analysis, expose the essence of the news sorcerers spells in manufacturing dramatic news stories that capture mass attentions, enliven imaginations, thus demanding mass emotional investment. Immediately following in separate posts, we shall delve into and provide examples of the three major elements regularly utilized to sell fabricated news narratives; numerology codes, spacial color coding, and Neural-linguistic programming .
But first, let us examine concrete evidence that all mainstream news stories are indeed prepackaged and fabricated.
Mainstream news has, for longer than television executives care to admit, utilized ‘video news releases.’ Some of the more discerning among the public may recall the controversy raised in 2004, when it was discovered major broadcast networks regularly aired video news releases produced by the government to promote good publicity for America’s unilateral invasion of Iraq. Of course when confronted, both Pentagon officials and even the president expressed staunch denials. When further pressured to label such prefabricated reports with a disclaimer, government officials offered only facile explanations in passing off accountability to mainstream affiliates, in essence claiming it was up to the individual stations to inform the public and identify proper news sources.
But of course, objective truth is anathema to propagandists.
One should also become acutely aware there in fact exists no true market competition between media markets and news networks. Among those with the largest market share is Disney, and their holdings are vast, including ABC, A&E, and even the popular sports network ESPN. Truly, the idea of competitive markets functioning within a free market system is in fact a carefully tailored illusion, created to induce belief that the American dream of prosperity is available to the masses, when in fact any profitable business market one cares to cite, has long been locked up by monopoly capitalists, bent on destroying anyone deemed a threat to their assiduously maintained hegemony.
Economists would call this market efficiency, but this is merely a euphemism for naked greed.
Video news releases and ‘satellite market tours’ are often routinely aired and falsely represented as investigative reporting, when in truth they are merely prepackaged propaganda pieces produced by corporate PR flacks and hacks. Media studies by Center for Media and Democracy have revealed many market affiliates entire broadcasts filled with such prepackaged content, and the news consuming public remains largely uninformed. If that weren’t egregious enough, there is the example of NBC head news sorcerer Brian Williams, and his bogus Iraq war story, the same Brain Williams who wants you to believe in the manufactured ‘Pulse nightclub tragedy.’ Williams ridiculous yarn, even after it was proven to be gross prevarication, continued to be sincerely flogged as gospel on all major network talk circuits as late as 2013. Williams claimed he had been aboard a military helicopter hit by rocket propelled grenade fire, and downed. This story was told with great emotional heft repeatedly, until Williams admitted he had perhaps falsified certain details of the event. In Williams case, as in the case of the famous Jessica Lynch hoax, the dramatic story of an army private rescued from insurgent captors, the story turned out to be grossly manufactured.
On that basis alone, even a regular consumer of mainstream news has to wonder; what else are the news sorcerers lying about?
But even a major league news sorcerer like Williams cannot afford to admit his spells perhaps no longer work! Finally, after years of prevarication, Williams was suspended from the air, and even condescended to offering the public pale apologies.
If Brian Williams fabricates news stories, don’t think for one minute CNN’s Anderson Cooper or his network magic masters are wholly pristine. CNN has long been the network notorious for delivering particularly transparent propaganda, especially during “war time.”
But of course, as has been well documented, the concept of war is nothing more than a profit generating racket. Entire global economies subsist on the concept of war’s perpetually systematic waste of human and other valuable natural resources in maintaining global order. As far back as 1990, Ted Turner’s network has been caught red handed spewing bogus news narratives and utilizing repeated deceptive journalistic shenanigans, employing ‘green screen’ in Atlanta studios while claiming to be somewhere else reporting a live event, as well as repeated misrepresentations of prerecorded video sold as real time.
There is significant evidence CNN employed deceptive use of prerecorded footage during coverage for what came to be known as the Sandy Hook massacre, even going so far as to utilize prerecorded audio for the aired 911 calls. It is also important to remember that with regard to television news markets, and their predominant reliance on video news releases and satellite market tours, there is not one shred of evidence any pertinent fact checking is performed regarding material content. In addition, PR flacks representing the firms distributing such materials to news affiliates are disguised as network journalists, presenting what appears to be a genuine and legitimate news report.
Now, do you still believe the mainstream news sorcerers aren’t casting spells?
Do you honestly believe the ‘alternative’ media is any different, think again!
Alternative media kingpin Alex Jones, who is merely a teleprompter reading actor pretending to present a non-mainstream version of world events, has been caught utilizing other actors posed as alternative media figures. Characters such as Jones are perhaps even more perfidious than mainstream news sorcerers, ostensibly promising to lead impressionable viewers to the truth, while in reality leading them down a primrose path, straight onward to more vacuous commercialism and CIA sponsored disinformation. Many in this so-called alternative media category, are merely sorcerers of another stripe, utilizing less transparent and perhaps more sophisticated spells on those turned away from the mainstream brand.
Nothing ever worth having comes easy, and so it is when discerning objective and unvarnished truth. Utilizing keen discernment, one must be ever vigilant, for the media, whether of the alternative or mainstream brand, is filled with nothing but lies and the liars that promulgate them.
