RT news anchor Liz Wahl resigned on air yesterday, saying, “I cannot be part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin. I am proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth and that is why after this newscast I’m resigning.” (SOURCE)
RT is, of course, entirely funded by the Russian government. I have been a guest on the network a few times but stopped over six months ago for essentially the same reasons Liz Wahl cited in her own resignation: RT has an editorial slant designed to protect the interests of Russia, not the United States of America.
And yet, at the same time, most of the U.S. media isn’t interested in protecting the United States of America, either. Instead, nearly all the media giants exist solely to protect the interests of powerful corporations: weapons manufacturers, GMO seed companies, vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical factories, corporatized agriculture and junk food giants.
U.S. journalists are whitewashing all the important issues in America
In reality, nearly every mainstream media journalist is whitewashing far more than Liz Wahl ever did. Sure, Putin is in the middle of a military power grab in Ukraine, but American corporations are poisoning the American people every single day through toxic foods, toxic medicines, toxic agriculture and toxic information.
Personally, I applaud Liz Wahl for what she did while at the same time condemning mainstream journalists for not doing the same. Every time you watch Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer or Christiane Amanpour report from a “war zone,” you are in fact watching media-prostitute-apologists who are whitewashing the for-profit war industry.
Every time you see a “health correspondent” promote flu shots on CNN or MSNBC (if anybody even watches that junk tabloid channel anymore), you are in fact watching a real-life prostitute-journalist whitewash the truth about vaccines and disease epidemics. (They will never tell you, for example, that flu shots still contain mercury, a potent neurotoxin that damages the brains of children and adults.)
Every time you witness a large newspaper such as the New York Times shamelessly promote the interests of biotech companies like Monsanto, you are in fact watching a major publisher whitewash potentially devastating issues like genetic pollution and the loss of agricultural diversity for America.
Truth be told, the vast majority of mainstream media organizations in the United States are engaged in little else besides whitewashing in order to protect the financial interests of the powerful corporations that literally own the media.
Telling the truth is simply not allowed in the mainstream media
A person who genuinely seeks the truth can never work for the mainstream media, almost by definition. Truthful journalism is never allowed in the media unless it either doesn’t matter or it just happens to coincide with the interests of powerful corporations. Those interests usually involve profits but sometimes also center around social engineering or long-term cultural programming such as making people believe ADHD is a real disease and children are not cognitively complete unless they are taking psychiatric drugs.
Media programming of the masses was especially evident in the days following the tragic events of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, after which the media fomented such outrageous fear, paranoia and anger that the American people willfully surrendered their freedoms so that Congress could pass the Patriot Act and create the Department of Homeland Security. Those actions later led to the NSA spying on all Americans: recording their phone calls, webcam videos, mobile device texts and financial transactions, all without warrants and completely outside of law.
Has any U.S. journalist ever resigned on air, saying they were tired of being part of a network that whitewashed these crucial issues and lied to the American people?
Of course not. Such actions are not written on the teleprompter, and the mainstream media routinely hires news anchors who are incapable of thinking for themselves.
Only total morons need teleprompters to report the news
I’ve done hundreds of hours of televised news production, hosting several popular shows and broadcasts, and I have never used a teleprompter in my entire life. That’s why the mainstream media has no interest in someone like me. They only want people who will stick to the script and not say what they truly believe.
That’s why Fox News fired Judge Napolitano, by the way. He’s too smart for the network. It’s also why MSNBC has now brought in teenie-bopper Ronan Farrow, a bumbling news anchor who’s so young that he can’t possibly have any significant life experience from which to say anything useful at all. Watching Farrow try to act like a news anchor reminds me of Justin Timberlake trying to act. Period.
It’s all just so pathetic and yet so obviously a grand corporate whitewash. It also makes me wonder whether we’ll ever see a U.S. journalist have the courage to do what Liz Wahl just did and admit, on air, that the network they’ve been stumping for is really in the business of controlling people, not informing them.
Anyone who believes anything produced by the mainstream media probably needs to have their head examined. I call those people “Non-Player Characters” (NPCs), by the way, and they are part of the reason why America now finds itself in such rapid decline. NPCs can’t think, but they are allowed to vote. And that’s exactly the way the political system wants it. The dumber the population, the easier it is to keep everybody on script… just like the airheads hosting CNN.
