There has been no shortage of Anonymous messages lately, and it’s no surprise given how much is going on right now.
Reporting from North Dakota here in Standing Rock, we have seen a complete lack of mainstream media. Even when Robert Kennedy Jr. came down, we were the only organization to get a one on one interview with him, how is that even possible given the size of what’s happening here at Standing Rock?
Mainstream media isn’t dropping the ball, they simply aren’t interested in supporting and covering what’s happening here, and it is likely because of who they are owned by.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).
It Goes Deeper…
Further, here is a document declassified by the CIA that outlines their involvement in manipulating media, journalists, authors, films, and more to have “reporters postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests or jeopardized sources and methods.” The ‘national security’ play has always been a way for these agencies to justify shady actions.
It was given to us by anonymous, credible source.
Given the shady dealings, agency manipulation, and ownership structure of most of mainstream media, the need for alternative voices is quite cear.
This is likely why Anonymous has declared war on mainstream media.
With the recent fake news allegations coming out, you can see how important of a time it is right now to really tap into your own discernment and feel within how information feels for you. Think multiple times about what you are reading, where it comes from and what the sources look like.
The elite are panicking right now and trying to create mass confusion about who to trust, this isn’t about finger pointing! It’s about us learning how to feel no matter where something is coming from. When you see blame and judgement being aggressively cast, there is likely an agenda there. be aware and vigilant folks!
