Former Newsweek reporter Tareq Haddad has finally clearly stated what logical human beings have known for quite some time: Stories that challenge establishment’s official narratives go unreported because the media has been co-opted by the United States government.
Which means this country is no better than China or any other dictatorship with state-sponsored media that pushed propaganda designed to keep the establishment in power. According to a report by RT, Haddad announced his resignation from Newsweek last week, claiming that his editors had shot down his attempt to report on a leaked email which casts doubt on the OPCW’s findings regarding an alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria, in April 2018.
And THIS story is wildly underreported thanks to the U.S. government, which “has its tentacles in every part of the media.”
Haddad resigned after Newsweek suppressed his story about the OPCW scandal (Syrian war narrative/propaganda). In perfect state-sponsored fashion, Newsweek accused Haddad of reporting on a “conspiracy theory.”

Ignoring the merits of the pitch, his editors responded by accusing Haddad of misreporting previous stories that he had worked on. He had previously worked for the Hull Daily Mail and International Business Times. The ex-Newsweek employee offered a scathing indictment of western media:
The US government, in an ugly alliance with those [that] profit the most from war, has its tentacles in every part of the media—imposters, with ties to the US State Department, sit in newsrooms all over the world… Inconvenient stories are completely blocked. As a result, journalism is quickly dying. America is regressing because it lacks the truth.
A new batch of leaked documents, released by WikiLeaks on Saturday, has corroborated the allegation that the OPCW suppressed and altered key findings in its final report on the Douma incident. That incident leads to violence and state-sanctioned attacks by the U.S. and others with little evidence, even at that time, that warranted such destruction.

There is no better time than now to wake up and understand what’s been going on. The problem stems from one superstition and the nature of government itself. In Larken Rose’s book
Most Dangerous Superstition, the author points out that it’s just one false belief that is keeping most of humanity enslaved. The primary threat to freedom and justice is not greed, or hatred, or any of the other emotions or human flaws usually blamed for such things. Instead, it is one ubiquitous superstition that infects the minds of people of all races, religions, and nationalities, which deceives decent, well-intentioned people into supporting and advocating violence and oppression. Even without making human beings one bit more wise or virtuous, removing that one superstition would remove the vast majority of injustice and suffering from the world.
In the book, Against the State: An Anarcho-Capitalist Manifesto author Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr. diagnoses what is wrong with the American political system and tells us what we need to fix things. The cure is a radical one because, as the book incontrovertibly shows, the many problems that confront us today are no accident. They stem from the nature of government itself. Only peaceful cooperation based on the free market can rescue us from our present plight.
Read these books while you still can. As freedom of speech is being killed off systematically by the powers that shouldn’t be, it won’t be long before books will be banned so the establishment can maintain some semblance of control over people.

The government has no need to control journalism, as the lackey journalist already bow and scrape without being asked.
A little late to the announcement. This CIA controlled Media began back in the 1950’s. Look up “Operation Mockingbird” Its all designed to sell war as a good thing. Perpetual war is the norm now. If the US doesn’t have an enemy the CIA will create a boggie man which the Military will save us from, and then they hijack every holiday as a salute to the troops. The 1st Boogie man was “Communism”, then it was “Terrorism”, and next its going to be “AI Space Aliens”. Of course, all to justify the Newest branch of the military “Space Force” Another $20 trillion bridge to know where, but the profit into the war machine and pockets of the lying media selling war and genocide as wonderful. My advice, stop paying taxes and contributing to illegal invasions and Killing of innocent.
The CIA ran a media infiltration program that used to be called Operation Mockingbird, I believe. The Church Committee outed them (and many other domestic covert ops) back in the 1970s. Things were supposed to change after the Church hearings. I guess they did. They kept those same programs running…just changed the names to protect the guilty.

Unfortunately very few people trust the press or tv folks anymore. Who do you trust now?
“…Many Americans have an undying faith in the media and thus revere this man-made entity without realizing they are doing so. These people usually consider anything printed or spoken by the media as gospel, and this is precisely how these opinion-shapers would have it.
“People who idolize the media are, at the best, naïve:
‘The simple [naïve] believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.’ (Proverbs 14:15)
“We are to live “by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of YHWH” (Deuteronomy 8:3). The word of everyone else should be judged by “the mouth of two or three witnesses” (2 Corinthians 13:1)….
“The impression of an independent press in America is part of the illusion. In 1898, at an annual dinner of the American Press Association, John Swinton, the one-time editor-in-chief of the New York Times, was called upon to toast journalism and America’s free press. He responded in a surprising way:
‘There is no such thing in America as an independent press, unless it is in the country towns.38 You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write his honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid $150.00 a week for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with—others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things—and any of you who would be so foolish as to write his honest opinions would be out on the street looking for another job. The business of the New York journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to revile, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his race and his country for his daily bread. You know this and I know it, and what folly is this to be toasting an “Independent Press.” We are tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.’39….”
