On July 31, in a report on the arrest of Jason Robo for allegedly placing an Infowars “9-11 was an inside job” sticker inside an airline restroom, the Boston Globe made mention of Alex Jones and Prison Planet.

However, as of today, August 2, all mention of Alex Jones and Prison Planet has been excised from the story, even though the story is virtually the same and the date remains July 31, 2008, 12:58 PM, although the page indicates the story was “updated” on Friday, August 1, at 10:02 AM.
Obviously, word came down from editors on-high at the Globe that any reference to Alex Jones and his popular Prison Planet website must be removed from the article because people may actually go to the site and read stories about 9/11 or be influenced by other truth materials contrary to the government fairy tale version of events, including Alex’s films and his nationally syndicated radio show, available as a 24-7 stream and downloadable podcast. In short, the Globe decided to relegate Jones and 9/11 truth to the memory hole.
In George Orwell’s dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, the memory hole is a slot into which government officials deposit politically inconvenient documents and records to be destroyed by incineration at the Ministry of Truth, actually a misnomer as Minitrue (in Orwellian Newspeak) served to falsify historical events. Of course, the Boston Globe is not a bona fide government agency, although it may as well be, considering the hand-in-glove relationship between the neocons and the corporate media, particularly obvious in the way the corporate media disseminated neocon lies and fabrications in the lead-up to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
As well, the corporate media endeavors to keep the official September 11 fairy tale alive, especially critical now as the 9/11 truth movement continues to make appreciable headway in debunking the government contrived fantasy and educating increasing numbers of people about the fact 9/11 was an inside job.
None of this should come as a surprise. The Boston Globe is owned by the New York Times and the Times continues to function as the “liberal” (Democrat) side of the false right-left paradigm. On the other side stands the War Street Journal — er, excuse me, the Wall Street Journal — pumping out more unabashed neocon (Republican) propaganda. As the CFR historian Carroll Quigley noted back in 1966, the “argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one perhaps of the Right, and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.” In fact, our globalist rulers control both sides and continue to distract us with such foolishness.
On occasion, they will slip up, as they did when an apparently unsupervised writer at the Boston Globe made the mistake of including mention of Alex Jones in a news article. It does not matter that Alex Jones is crucial to the very essence of the story, as Jason Robo obviously listens to the Alex Jones Show and purchased his stickers from Infowars.
Once upon a time, the media claimed to respect objective journalism. Now the corporatized media has another, more cirtical task – to disseminate globalist propaganda and provide the distracted masses with an endless flow of mindless pablum. Inserting Alex Jones in the mix only serves to defeat the purpose, for the idea, as Aldous Huxley understood, is for the corporate media to provide the masses with “bread and circuses” and “distractions and propaganda” in order to make them “contented with their servitude.”
