Although there have been numerous articles about fake news, few and far between are the analyses of how exactly it has been done. For decades, the CIA worked intimately with the centralized news hubs, such as the AP, Reuters, etc., and the big three networks that were once two large conglomerates, CBS and NBC. Corporate news and broadcasting has thus long been in the pocket of the dynastic oligarchs, with the CIA and other intelligence networks determining news and media content. It has been controlled, faux news from the get-go. Famed journalist Carl Bernstein explains of this alliance:
“■ The use of journalists has been among the most productive means of intelligence‑gathering employed by the CIA. Although the Agency has cut back sharply on the use of reporters since 1973 primarily as a result of pressure from the media), some journalist‑operatives are still posted abroad.
■ Further investigation into the matter, CIA officials say, would inevitably reveal a series of embarrassing relationships in the 1950s and 1960s with some of the most powerful organizations and individuals in American journalism.
Among the executives who lent their cooperation to the Agency were Williarn Paley of the Columbia Broadcasting System, Henry Luce of Tirne Inc., Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York Times, Barry Bingham Sr. of the LouisviIle Courier‑Journal, and James Copley of the Copley News Service. Other organizations which cooperated with the CIA include the American Broadcasting Company, the National Broadcasting Company, the Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps‑Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald‑Tribune.
By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc.”
Operation Mockingbird was a famous, now-public intelligence-run media co-opting program, run by classic CIA luminaries such as Dulles, Wisner, etc. But Mockingbird is only one publicly-known program. In reality, the whole of mass media is this program. The news is thus faked by being shot on green screens at central locations with hundreds of script writers and lackeys. For decades, this was done at the CBS Broadcasting Center, though now things have changed a bit, with other centralized entities now playing key roles, like the ridiculous psy op center known as CNN. Simply put, this is why and how the news is faked, and below are some of the hall of fame FAIL examples. So, rather than send all your money and spend your time with these liars, why not support independent news and research like JaysAnalysis, that tells you the truth?
