Is Everything in the Mainstream Media Fake? – 6 Examples of Media Manipulation

By Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer for Waking Times

The world of television and modern media has become a tool of de-evolution, propaganda and social control. Since the reign of Edward Bernays and the rise of the Tavistock Institute in the early 20th century, nearly unlimited resources have been applied to understanding how to manipulate the human psyche through television and other forms of mass media. What we have today is an increasingly sophisticated full-spectrum assault on free will and psychological well-being, and we have come to a point where it is no longer even necessary for media institutions to attempt to hide their blatant work of manipulating public opinion, manufacturing consent, and creating winners and losers in the minds of the already brain-washed public.

Here are 6 examples where truth reveals that the impression the media is conveying to a dumbed-down, unsuspecting public differs greatly from what is actually happening behind the scenes. By looking at these examples in a single location, it is easy to see how the mainstream media is pushes ulterior motives on the public, and how important it is to be vigilant when consuming consumer info.

News Media Lies, Scripting, Omissions and Obfuscations

1. Time Magazine sanitizes their covers for American consumption – Time Magazine is considered a leader in national news, yet they consistently portray a dumbed-down, frivolous image of life in America while presenting an entirely different message to the rest of the world. In the two examples below, their magazine covers feature a different cover story for Americans while sending different messages to the rest of the world.

2. CNN is the leader in fake war new coverage – Here are just 2 examples of how CNN has scripted and staged live war coverage to create a sense of drama and danger around people who were not in harm’s way.

Anderson Cooper fakes Syria war footage by dubbing in sound effects and playing chaotic video next to a Syrian correspondent. In the video you can see how in one tape the correspondent is a safe environment, then you see the footage aired by CNN with dubbed in theatrical effects:

In this CNN clip of coverage of the first Gulf War in the 1990′s, anchorman Charles Jaco makes a joke of war coverage in Saudia Arabia and demonstrates how the news is overly sensationalized for American audiences, and how hosts pretend to be in danger when they are not. At 7:00 in this clip Jaco quickly puts on a ridiculous gas mask for obvious theatrics while talking to a guest:

Manufactured Arab Spring Implemented in Iran Amid Stricter US Sanctions

Mainstream media reports riot in the streets of Iran because of a crumbling economy. Hundreds of police disbursed groups that formed, firing tear gas into the crowds.

This is the first instance of public unrest over the declining Iranian currency and has the hallmarks of being a synthetic revolt.

The pressure placed on Iran by the US and Zionist interests is causing massive suffering on the part of Iranian citizens. This has limited Iran’s ability to sell oil. The Iranian rial has lost 18% of its worth and still plummeting . Trading has nearly completely been halted, according to trading houses.

Anoush Ehteshami, professor of international relations at Durham University in the U.K, states that: “The fact that there are street protests was in many ways inevitable given that the Iranians are essentially living in a pressure cooker. The protest also reflects the lack of confidence in the elite’s ability to sort things out. People are also aware of tensions at the highest level of the state and you put these things together and they want at the very least to show their anger.”

Concerning Iran, AIPAC coerced the US Congress to impose stricter sanctions on Iran with HR 1905 and the desire to inspire the revolution of Iranian citizens against their government.

Rumors of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad being unfit to guide the Islamic nation are beginning to circulate. Meanwhile protesters are beginning to surface in a curious way – nearly just as the US-sponsored Free Syrian Army (FSA) suddenly developed.
