A FREE PRESS – examined

I did it again. I started to reply to an email from Linda (7/22/17) about Spicer, lies and her being thankful that we have a free press. This activated nuet to compose a very long reply. Too long to send, and it needed editing, so it was saved, and forgotten. Now (8/4/17) I discovered my draft reply, and chose to post it on my blog, edit, and inform others. So, here goes.

————————–

It seems like months, but only 3 days ago Linda replied to an email with reference to Spicer’s “lies” and how she is thankful that we have a free press. There is still, no country (not the nation) that I would prefer to live in than that located between Mexico and Canada. Yet, I immediately composed most of what follows about the myth of the free press in the USA. I then forgot it, only to discover it, and do minor edits.  I think I intended it to be a blog post. No time for this at the moment – maybe later. (7/25/17)

Although we have no FREE PRESS, fully in the USA; a really FREE PRESS doesn’t exist anywhere. However, here in the USA we have (at least now) an INTERNET within which we can (by searching) find a very vast range of “points of view”.  I know some is censored, but don’t know what. Other nations censor for their majority; but CYBERSPACE remains OPEN from anywhere – If you know how [I may be wrong].  This is about to change.

As to our “free” press. Absolutely nowhere in our MSM (Main Stream Media) can you find an article about 9/11 that is NOT THE ESTABLISHMENT’S CONSPIRACY THEORY (Ben Laden did it), as their accepted story. Stories about “Inside Jobs” are censored from all MSM; except that talk of a 911 conspiracy is ridiculed in the MSM.

Indeed, the MSM continues to badmouth even the concept of real conspiracies. Periodically there are diversionary reports, such as the Saudi involvement – to confuse the issue. Trump’s crazy claim about seeing, on TV, hundreds of Arabs dancing  to 911 (ridiculed by the liberal press) was probably because he saw a report of five Israeli/Jewish young men taking selfies with the tower’s collapse as background, in New Jersey. This story soon became unavailable, even online – but I had read different versions, some claiming they were Mossad agents.   But, here it is. Trump (for once) did see something, but gave it his own meaning and exaggeration.

The same applies to ANY reporting of the political assassinations in the late 20th century proposing that they weren’t ALL by lone, deranged gunmen. “Over-whelming evidence” (but not all to be trusted) that 911 and the assassinations were NOT as the official theories claim IS AVAILABLE ON OUR INTERNET. But, the confirmable FACT that it is there CAN’T appear in our MSM (from CNN, MSNBC, FOX, and the CBS, NBC, ABC news channels). Even independent journals, like our Tucson Weekly, don’t dare cover these stories. USA corporate collusion with Nazi corporations up to, and even during WWII doesn’t make MSM news.  IBM maintained the German “computers” that kept their accurate records of the Holocaust killings, during WWII.  Allen Dulles was in Switzerland during most of WWII, working with many Nazis, who he respected. Dulles facilitated the Chief of Nazi Intelligence, Reinhard Gehlen,  to first become head of West German Intelligence, and later – in the USA, to work with the CIA.  It is rationalized that this was necessary for our Cold War conflicts with the USSR.

American history, on our MSM, is a massive whitewash. However, all this information IS AVAILABLE in published books in the USA – but you must look for them.  I have been using “press” as Main Stream newspapers, journals, popular books, and TV news & analyses. TV entertainment programming is also a powerful source for pro-USA propaganda.

NOTE ON CENSORSHIP IN THE USA: Letting “delicate” information have limited access, but limiting its distribution in the MSM is a more secure means of censorship that blanket book-burning. Authorities can keep track of this, when “in the open”; rather than driving it “underground”.

Also forbidden from our whole MSM is that the final count in our recent (21st Century) presidential elections have all been hacked.  USA elections are sophisticatededly rigged, not by fake voters (as Trump claims, via project CrossCheck) but by subtle tinkering with the final count in a few key states.  The MSM will report on voter suppression. Evidence (not available on MSM) is strong that George W. Bush LOST BOTH his presidential elections. Evidence is strong that Hillary won the MA primary (over Obama) by rigging ONLY those voting sites that used computerized vote tallying methods, where she had business interests in those voting systems. That OUR ELECTIONS may not be valid is a taboo topic in our MSM. Trump’s claims of voter fraud are such outlandish lies that the MSM can report on them – as a diversion for the REAL VOTE-COUNT manipulation (which I speculate gave Trump his “victory” – the Russian intervention wasn’t enough). Such talk by Trump strengthens the larger coverup that our elections are no longer valid. Search The Internet about Media Censorship, while it is still permitted in the USA.

Some of the above stories may be fabricated, as there are many “conspiracy stories” in the kook literature. But, you can’t debate these in the MSM, let alone acknowledge the controversies. Note that 911TRUTH and the Kennedy assassinations are often pointed out, in our MSM, listed among the more outlandish conspiracies. I speculate that Alex Jones is a Deep State agent to propagate crazy conspiracy theories to mask real conspiracy theories, in his INFOWARS. Trump consults Alex Jones and INFOWARS looks less “crazy” now that Trump is POTUS. Alex Jones started out covering what might have been valid conspiracies – then he went crazy. Did the FEDs make him an offer he couldn’t refuse?

Recently I viewed a NEWSWEEK online piece on Alex Jones, making fun of his conspiracies. The first three were a sandwich. Between conspiracy theories: Sandy Hook (that the massacre of children was a hoax) and PizzaGate (that Hillary ran a child sex ring at a pizza parlor) was the 9/11TRUTH hypothesis. Think on the contrast, and the intent of the juxtaposition.

INTO THE BUZZSAW: Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press, edited by Kristina Borjesson (2004) is an informative read. What I remember is the chapter of how TV news programs, already scheduled, will suddenly be canceled because of government pressure – sometimes on the day of their presentation.

Some major authors of deep expose may “deal” with authorities, to be permitted to criticize – so long as they support specific key government coverups. Noam Chomsky avoids commenting on 9/11TRUTH, focusing only on how we pushed them to attack us.  I think I read an article by Chomsky being strongly against all criticism of the government sponsored conspiracy theory about 911; but that is no longer on his list. Did I imagine it?  What is clear is that there is no record of any Chomsky statements on 9/11 INSIDE JOB CONSPIRACIES.  Much earlier, radical newsletter author I.F. Stone, did the same “in defense” of Oswald being the lone assassin of JFK. Their “articles” were so out of character and hinted (to me) that they were fake. I know I read that article and was disturbed. IF Stone on 12/09/1963 on JFK, where he assumes Oswald the assassin. On 10/05/1964 IF Stone wrote in defense of the Warren committee report and attacked its critics. It was this issue that disturbed me.  The Internet has become valuable.  ALL OF I.F.STONE.

We DO HAVE SOME STRONG FREEDOMS IN THE USA, but we are not the most free country.

In my new model of reality, contrasting Material Reality (e.g. physics2biology) with Human Reality (Humankind), there is no TRUE or FAKE.   Within humankind, the “empirical bases” are  symbolic patterns (e.g., text reports & videos) – all requiring INTERPRETATION, which then depends on unconscious/assumed CONTEXTS (which are, themselves, supposedly based on a system of other “reports”).

Spicer lies within your accepted contexts, but is viewed as sharing the truth in the contexts of Trump supporters -to whom he was speaking. He was not speaking to you.

What might presenting a set of videos showing Trump uttering logically contradictory messages MEAN to a Trump supporting viewer? What if the viewer has not been educated about “logic”?  In “logic” courses we learned how most humans frequently accept logical fallacies as truth. Our brains are not wired to logic!

Who has the top authority to claim that LOGIC must dominate in all discourse? Such “authority” is assumed by those versed in modern science. The contemporary anti-science and anti-logic movements follow a “libertarian” opinion that individual human “free will” IS PRIMARY.  There is no available GOD or Cosmic Court to judge between Science and Libertarian doctrines.

Is there a MATERIAL FACT about Russian collusion with the Trump Team in the 2016 elections?  There may be, but within the discourse within Humankind, there is no consensus as how to judge “evidence” or “facts”. Trump supporters REJECT y/our reality, and reject any higher reality which might judge their reality. Thus, any appeal to “factual evidence” cannot work within humankind, as currently situated.

We might look back to history, to times BEFORE logic and scientific evidence were part of the consensual context of some humans.  Both have NEVER been part of the context of the majority of humans. That we BELIEVE in logic and science is no guarantee that the whole of humankind will ever share those beliefs. Up2Met is a possible program to optimize humankind for survival/thrival – not make it “objectively pure”.

To me, this Trump Phenomenon, can open our minds to these “modern assumptions”, now challenged. What many of us are alerted to, is that the “facts” accepted during the Obama administration by Obama supporters, is as FAKE as those proposed by Trump. What is the “truth” about Libya and the Ukraine?   I “like” most of what I view on MSNBC; except, what rankles my emotions, are their (to me) out-right “lies” about Libya and Ukraine. I don’t know WHAT REALLY HAPPENED THERE. I do know I have read very strongly contradictory reports, from which my analysis of THESE REPORTS, leads me to the conclusion that Hillary and Barack are possibly guilty of war crimes. Yet, I accept most of the reporting by MSNBC about Trump and crew.

There are other analysts, who I still respect on most matters. However, in their support to exposure of the evils of The Deep State (including the Clintons and Obama); they (with strong emotional language) also view CNN and MSNBC as totally fake (deep evil) news {Rachael Maddow is their arch-enemy}. They claim that there was NO/Zero Russian involvement in our elections, and that anything Trump offers is better than insured nuclear war with Russia, if the Deep State prevails.

It astounds me how such quality minds can entail such blindspots. It is NOT that MSNBC/CNN maybe/maybenot  contributing to nuclear holocaust. This IS a concern. Rather, it his how everyone is susceptible of biased thinking and seem unable to accept their own potential for bias.

These are not just the rantings of Larry/nuet. There are many excellent books on how we humans really process. The most recent, which is very complex and needs deep reading, is :

Larry:  Check out the Sean Spicer article about how he will be remembered…it seems in line with your latest Nuet post about false flags.  I can not even imagine having to be in Sean’s shoes and needing to lie to the American public as part of your job!!

Thank god we still have a free press…or at least it seems like a last vestige…even if it isn’t totally free, we do get some actual news and reporting about the lies coming from on high.
