New Media Are As Intertwined With Imperial Power As Old Media

Alan MacLeod has a new article out with Mintpress News showing how most of the supposedly independent “fact-checking” organizations which Facebook has partnered with to police the information people are allowed to see on the platform about the war in Ukraine are, in fact, funded by the United States government.

  1. There is good news methinks —
    The gov't needs to pay corporations openly now versus softer Hollywood & Laurel Canyon manipulations.

    Even awakened to this reality, the disconnect b/w governed & governing may be too great…at least in the USA.

  2. Lee camp this week was touted and featured in mint press. Camp is a tool, I , seemingly alone in mint press, commented on it. mp to me is suspect also.

  3. TYT, Breaking Points, The Majority Report, Rational National, The Humanist Report, Benjamin Dixon, Tim Black, Destiny, Vaush, Hasanabi, Non Compete and veritas et caritas are all Fed. Most of breadtube is.

    A few of them like Destiny, Vaush and Hasanabi have even admitted to it on stream.

    Great writing as always.

  4. Yeah. We live in the Empire of Lies.
    I call it the Empire of Filth .. but anyway:
    #FreeAssange. He is the only prophet-grade human in Earth right now.
    (edit: And look .. I am getting sick of teaching people that perception is NOT reality.
    Perception is an error-reducing loop of trial and error that merely seeks reality, but can never capture it. This is usually good enough for survival, but not always.
    Humans have 3 main levels of perception:
    3. Is the narrative level – this is where we keep our world-view, along with all the assumptions and unresolved lies – but it is here where we navigate our lives. AKA Ego.
    2. Is the core. It is here where our essential self resides. It is the intersection between our external and internal perceptions – closely coupled with the sensory information from both inside the body, the immediate outside context of the body and social state – including social communications of language, Music, Dance, and ritual.
    1. Is the proto. Here the internal functions of the body maintain the homeostasis required for a human body to remain alive – temperature, blood pressure, PH, and a miriad other factors that keep all our cells operating in harmony.
    All levels consult with the proto to measure the success or failure of external agency.
    And it is the process of prediction/trial/error that humans call "perception".
    We SEEK reality even though we will never find it.
    Anything that makes that gap wider? Is an existential threat.
    Lies make us die.
    Simple as that.
    Seek the truth – even though you will never grasp it. When you fail to seek the truth .. you die.)

  5. The best test I have for any of the "new" media (especially those who claim to be 'trustworthy' such as Breaking Points and Destiny) is to simply ask oneself, "how frequently does this media source promote the prime aims of the empire?" For example, they may criticize the ruling class, but they'll always be pushing you to vote for them. They'll claim to be anti-mandate, but push the actual measures nonstop. Whatever big goal our overlords are trying to accomplish, many of these 'new' media entities are pushing their base towards it.

    Meet the new media, same as the old media.
