What is real and what is staged? What is accurate and what is a lie? What is done only to present an agenda, and one that is completely motivated by self-interest? Is everything coming from the government’s press releases propaganda? Most likely the answer to this question is yes.
The mainstream media is in lock step with the White House, and simply reports exactly what they are told to report. This is true across the entire spectrum of so-called news stations. It really doesn’t matter if it is Fox or CNN; they all follow the same pattern.
Leaks from the White House are constant it seems, but are they really leaks or is the information being presented meant only to sway opinion one way or another, or is it meant only to prop up Obama’s poll numbers? This is an election year after all. As far as I can tell, nothing can be taken at face value, and nothing should be believed. This is simply a political game, and a very dangerous one at that.
These shenanigans would not be effective if the American masses were not so dumbed down, gullible, and completely ignorant of reality. Just lately, talking points and leaks have been put out by the White House, and virtually every news station has reported them exactly the same, and continually.
The Secret Service scandal has been inundating the news lately, but their daliances with drugs and prostitutes is nothing new. The White House apparently desires that this be known, and is continuing to put out report after report. The drone expansion by the CIA in Yemen that Obama approved is supposed to be secret but has been widely reported recently. CIA activities are most always secret, except when there is something to be gained politically by exposing those same activities. Apparently that is the reasoning now. And now there are leaks concerning the bin Laden assassination, an assassination in my opinion that never happened. Every day a new story arises, and all point to the supposed great leadership of the evil Obama. Convenient or staged? Do I even have to answer this silly question?
All in all, nothing is to be believed when it comes from the White House, and is regurgitated by the mainstream press. Most of what is put out for the “public” are lies, and are manufactured for political gain. Given that another worthless election will take place this year, we can expect many more leaks, and many more lies. Of course the media will continue chasing these fabrications, and report them as fact.
Those like Lew Rockwell and Glenn Greenwald, as well as several other libertarian and truth-seeking writers will continue to expose the truth, but their reports will rarely if ever show up in the pathetic mainstream media.
