US MSM A Tool Of US Government

I will be villified, and the government will use the media to do it....Snowden


James Snowden has 'fled' to Hong Kong, after the Washington Post revealed to the US Government that there was a leak.

Hong Kong was returned to Chinese sovereignty amid MSM protestations that Chinese "jack boot" troops would destroy the British Colony. China promised to preserve the so called freedoms people in Hong Kong enjoyed. Just this past week 10s of thousands commemorate the Tienanmen demonstration. Obviously China was true to her promises and the MSM was overexcited. I selected this video to capture the nature of freedom that Snowden described as his reason to seek refuge from US persecution, because this video presentation doen not claim there was a 'massacre' in Tiananmen, and in fact, there was no massacre. However, due to massive MSM excitement, most folks continue to believe there was a massacre and that China is covering it up. 

I was there at the time, and when I returned home, I called the DOS to complain that the MSM was brainwashing American People into believing there was a massacre when there was not. I was "informed" by the DOS that "in America" we have a "free press" that can report anything they want, that the public does NOT have the right to know, and although the DOS knows the truth, under US law, they are NOT required to inform the American People as to the facts.

Obama loves leaks, hates whistleblowers!

It is ironic that The Washington Post and The New York Times claim that the Obama administration has aggressively pursued leakers seeing that both media sources have happily provided Obama administration officials with anonymity so they can leak classified information favorable to the President without consequence.

Somehow, The Washington Posts’ June 1, 2012, report on the Obama administration’s use of cyber warfare must have slipped through the cracks at the White House and the DOJ. The Washington Post reported that the U.S. and Israel were behind Stuxnet, the cyberattack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Prior to this report, there had been speculation that the U.S. and Israel were behind the attack, but no official confirmation. Confirmation was provided to The Washington Post by an official “speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe the classified effort code-named Olympic Games.”

These cracks must be enormous to have let the three dozen current and former Obama administration officials who contributed to The New York Time’s expose on drones slip through them. On May 29, 2012, The New York Times revealed that Obama maintains a ‘Kill List’ and that he counts all military-age males killed in drone strikes as combatants unless proven innocent posthumously. Regarding the president’s indiscriminate counting method, one official “requested anonymity to speak about what is still a classified program.”

Meanwhile, the Obama administration has charged six whistle-blowers, a term apparently not in The New York Times’s or The Washington Post’s editorial vocabulary, under the Espionage Act. These six individuals have revealed government waste, fraud, and abuse, acts of aggression, torture and war crimes. Yet, it is those who have revealed the criminal activity that have suffered prosecution by the Obama administration while those who actually committed the crimes have gone unpunished.

On Feb. 22, 2012, in response to Obama’s deserved glowing praise of journalists in Syria, Jake Tapper asked White House press secretary Jay Carney, “How does that square with the fact that this administration has been so aggressively trying to stop aggressive journalism in the United States by using the Espionage Act to take whistle-blowers to court?”

The Obama administration has sent a clear message. Government officials and journalists who wish to work together to create news stories through the leak of classified information that portray the president and his administration in a positive light should have no fear. And to the journalists and whistle-blowers thinking about publishing that other kind of classified information, be prepared to have your emails read, your phones tapped without your knowledge and your life and career turned upside down.
