Much steam is being vented from establishment media sources regarding the issue of ‘Fake News’, but nowhere from this tower of babel does flow any mention of its parentage. The art of fake news; intentional deception, has spent a number of decades now marinating, gestating within the upper chambers of debauchery, its pinnacle of evolution now bursting its rotten underbelly upon the masses for sunlight to disinfect…I hope. In which case, the following bears repeating.
In 1948 former OSS chief, CIA director Allen Dulles and Frank Wisner Sr. officially created Operation MOCKINGBIRD by raising Reich minister of Propaganda, Paul Josef Goebbels’ Nazi mass media propaganda machine in the U.S. to experiment with on the American people, via the newly emerging technology of television.
It was an illegal domestic operation designed to mimic what Goebbels’ had so masterfully crafted for the Third Reich. Wisner who ran Mockingbird in its earliest days once boasted that the operation was like a mighty Wurlitzer, “… I can play any tune I want on it and America will follow faithfully along.”
Wisner’s mockingbirds included some of America’s best known reporters and commentators, who eagerly signed on to the CIA’s subsidy to exaggerate the Russian threat. Wisner was also a co-founder of GLADIO
John Pilger traces the history of propaganda to Edward Bernays, the American nephew of Sigmund Freud, who invented the term “Public Relations”. Bernays believed in “engineering public consent” by creating “false realities” as news…..
Instead of “Propaganda”, Bernays coined the euphemism “Public Relations”.
The American tobacco industry hired Bernays to convince women they should smoke in public. By associating smoking with women’s liberation, he made cigarettes “torches of freedom”. In 1954, he conjured a communist menace in Guatemala as an excuse for overthrowing the democratically elected government, whose social reforms were threatening the United Fruit Company’s monopoly of the banana trade. He called it a “liberation”……today it is NEWS
