The important Role of the Media in Times of Conflict
update: Sept.'06


Summary of this page:
There is no such thing as an independent press - journalists are intellectual prostitutes.
The TV slots of celebrating Palestinians shown on September 11 were 10 years old. The critical tiny brave TV station Al Jazeera studio in Kabul was bombed by America in October '01.
The "Smoking Gun" bin Laden video was obviously doctored - compare the photos! bin Laden's happy expression was taken from a tape of the marriage of his child to the child of Aiman Al-Zawaheri four years ago.
Adolf Hitler, master of mass manipulation, about the art of lying: "in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily, and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie."
Herman Goering (Hitler's propaganda minister) on how easily to influence people.
We are being programmed through the media. The television has desensitised us. Turn off your TV and radio! Instead concentrate on a world of love and peace.

"The first responsibility of the press is to use its freedom to protect the rights and liberties of all individuals. The press must speak out, and, if the occasion arises, raise bloody hell." - Herblock, 1957

Journalists in media by John Swinton - New York Times - New York Press Club

[From http://www.thisistherealtruth.net/Knowledge/media/media.htm, a very critical overview with lots of background information about the "media mafia".]

There is no such thing, at this date in the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.

There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.

I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion 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 honest opinions would be out on the street looking for another job.

If I allowed my honest opinion to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

You know it and I know it.

And what folly is this - toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes.

We are the 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.

Some interesting facts about the media

The TV slots of celebrating Palestinians shown on September 11 were old ones. CNN used old 1991 footage of Palestinians Celebrating: www.livejournal.com/talkpost.bml?itemid=10618915.

The tiny brave TV station Al Jazeera (www.aljazeera.net/) had a studio in Kabul. It was originally financed by the US and stood for freedom of speech - until it was destroyed by American bombs in October '01. Why? It was too critical re. the American politics. This is a dangerous example of how the current politics deal with criticism. Read also about The End of Freedom in the US.

By Chris Blackhurst" on www.independent.co.uk/story.jsp?story=98195

Independent media? Le Figaro is now owned by the Carlyle Group, the American defense contractor which employs George Bush Sr., and which had as investors the bin Laden family, until they sold their stake on October 26 (www.copvcia.com). Whom can we trust?

Al Jazeera on the Tape: A Bad Cut & Paste Job? - Analysts Comment

Story from Al Jazeera www.aljazeera.net/news/america/2001/12/12-13-3.htm - 13 December 2001 [Bold text marked by Ralph]

Aljazeera hosted a number of analysts to comment on the content of the tape which the US navy found in Afghanistan, according to Washington. [Note: the "find" has been variously attributed to the US Army, the Navy, the "military" and of course to the CIA, which is operating in military drag in Afghanistan, and which is undoubtedly the true source of this Crusade Production.--NY Transfer.]

One specialist in Islamic affairs, Hani Al Sibaei, described the video tape as "fabricated and a scandal for the greatest democratic country in the world."

In a telephone call with AlJazeera from London, he noted the congratulatory wishes on the tape and bin Laden's happy expression, and said that this segment of the tape was taken from a tape of Osama bin Laden being congratulated on the marriage of his child to the child of Aiman Al-Zawaheri -- an event that took place four years ago.

The expert said that it boggles the mind that an organization like AlQaeda would create such simple-minded videotapes and then leave them behind in a private home. He added that bin Laden has twice denied involvement in the attacks and said that he had sworn to Mullah Mohamed Omar, leader of the Talban movement, that the AlQaeda organization pledged it would not plan attacks against other countries from inside Afghanistan.

In contrast, Christopher Ross -- a consultant hired by the US State Department -- says that the tape is genuine and not a fabrication. In a conversation with AlJazeera, he acknowledged he had to replay the tape tens of times in order to hear the conversation because the sound was so bad. He also indicated that in order to improve the translation, he then replayed the tape another 50 times with the translator. He confirmed that the translation is not literal, because of the poor quality of the original tape's sound. Ross said that he considered the tape "proof" that bin Laden had considerable knowledge of the details of the attacks on America, and that he was shocked when he saw bin Laden rejoicing over the attack on the buildings and the murder of people.

"I have viewed exceprts from the "Smoking Gun" bin Laden video and I can't see how anyone could mistake the actor on the video for Usama bin Laden. It seems that UbL has been gulping down more than his fair share of the "food aid" that is being dropped because he is obviously carrying a few more pounds, mostly in the face, since the videos screened on Al Jazeera not long ago, reportedly recorded only a few days earlier. I seem to associate the actor on the video more with Will Smith than with UbL. It must further be mentioned that the parts of the audio that can be heard do not sound anything at all like the audio of bin Laden on the Al Jazeera broadcasts. In fact it does not even sound like the arabic spoken by an arab.
Haroon Sulaiman (from www.rense.com)

Please take a closer look at the video, please look at Ayman Al-Zawarih's lips when speaking, this is the only man in the video whose face appears towards the camera while actually speaking a long sentence, and guess what? Yup, the synchronisation of the voice and the video image of his lips was not in tune with each other!

Is this the same person? Photos from www.aztlan.net/

On the same day they release this videotape, which we are supposed to believe was miraculously found by the CIA in a private home in Jalalabad, the US Government is refusing to release to the US Congress documents on all kinds of other criminal investigations -- unrelated to bin Laden-- which were subpoenaed by a bi-partisan group of Congressional representatives.

If anyone cares to look at their piece of embarrassingly bad video disinformation, go see it at - www.abcnews.com. Decide if you can hear it or, for that matter, if you can even identify the major player with any confidence as Osama bin Laden.

"There is clearly reason to doubt the tape. There is excessive noise on the audio track, making it impossible to really hear what is being said. Given that the tape was recorded in an area supposedly devoid of audio urban signature, there should have been little ambient noise, yet the speech is masked with a great deal of noise. Then there is that gap in the audio track, reminiscent of Nixon's missing 18 minutes, and the truths it once contained which are lost forever to history. Doubts have already been raised regarding the correct translation of Osama's words into "We", when his words could also mean "They"." Read the full article at: www.whatreallyhappened.com/osamatape.html

"The defence minister of the ousted Taleban regime in Afghanistan told the BBC that he was doubtful about the recording's authenticity, saying it was unlikely that Bin Laden would have been naive enough to say such things on a recording."

Remember: Osama Bin Ladin said in an interview with a Pakistani newspaper; "I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle."

Adolf Hitler, master of mass manipulation, about the art of lying

"All this was inspired by the principle -- which is quite true in itself -- that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily, and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes."

Herman Goering (second in command of the Third Reich, and commander of the Luftwaffe) on how to influence people

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.
All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

Turn off your TV and radio!

"Do not to listen to the media with regards to what is happening in America! The reason I believe this is so, is because somehow we are being programmed through the media, call it a subliminal program, that makes us feel compelled to know what is happening next. It is very subtle, but very powerful. The television had desensitized us.   .....

"Our minds create our reality... . Lift your thoughts and vibrations to one of peace, harmony, sharing and abundance free of war and controls that limit freedom and our divine expression. It is no good praying for peace and then listening to the media matrix, as you are still focusing on that matrix.

"Do yourself a favour and turn off your radio and TV and see just how you feel. You will feel free and not stressed or emotionally tied in to these events. Instead concentrate on the world of love, peace and sharing that you envision in the future.
Try the exercise of turning off your TV and radio for two days and go about your daily life without tapping into the events in America - you will notice a difference, like a psychic web has been cut from you. You will feel very different. The fact the web has been cut can be tangibly felt."
