Corporate Media Counting Cadence to Fascism, Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report

  • https://blackagendareport.com/sites/default/files/styles/image-400x300/public/Glen_Spying.jpeg?itok=oj8HD4cgThe ruling class/War Party/corporate media campaign for regime change in Washington has moments of pure silliness, with grown men claiming that U.S. presidents don’t have the power to wiretap people. Someone should have informed Dr. Martin Luther King. But, if self-described “progressives” can believe that the CIA is a benign, democratic institution, they can believe anything. “The destabilization of the U.S. bourgeois state is a project, not of the Kremlin, but of multinational and finance capital headquartered in the U.S.”

Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report 

https://blackagendareport.com/sites/default/files/styles/image-400x300/public/Glen_Spying.jpeg?itok=oj8HD4cgWed, 03/08/2017 | When Donald Trump charged that President Obama wiretapped the Republican campaign in the weeks after the November election, the bulk of corporate media chose to treat the allegation as another example of Trump’s “alternative facts.” They trotted out folks like Ben Rhodes, a former deputy National Security Advisor to Obama, who dismissed the charge as ridiculous. "No President can order a wiretap,” Rhodes huffed.

This may be technically true, but it’s an objective lie. Presidents can cause anybody to be spied upon, simply by indicating a desire to see it happen. In 1963, the Kennedy brothers -- formally acting through Bobby Kennedy’s office as Attorney General -- gave FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover permission to tap Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s phones and bug his home and offices. Hoover’s goal, according to a 2008 CNN “Black in America” report, was to “neutralize King as an effective Negro leader.” The Bureau didn’t find evidence that King was under “communist influence,” but did discover “embarrassing details about King's sex life,” which the FBI used to encourage King to kill himself. When he declined to take his own life, someone else did the job.

http://media.salon.com/2010/04/white_house_reporters_afraid_to_criticize_the_white_house-460x307.jpgFebruary 28, 2017 | It’s heartwarming that The New York Times and The Washington Post are troubled that President Trump is loosely throwing around accusations of “fake news.” It’s nice that they now realize that truth does not reliably come from the mouth of every senior government official or from every official report.

The Times is even taking out full-page ads in its own pages to offer truisms about truth: “The truth is hard. The truth is hidden. The truth must be pursued. The truth is hard to hear. The truth is rarely simple. The truth isn’t so obvious. …”  On Sunday, those truth truisms ran opposite an alarmist column by Jim Rutenberg entitled, “Will the Real Democracy Lovers Please Stand Up?” Meanwhile, The Washington Post launched its own melodramatic slogan, “Dies in Darkness.”

Investigative reporter Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s. You can buy his latest book, America’s Stolen Narrative, either in print here or as an e-book (from barnesandnoble.com).

Watch Jon Stewart on 'Colbert' Urge Media to Dump Trump, Jon Blistein, Rolling Stone 

Former 'Daily Show' host encourages press to get over breakup with president, find new hobbies like journalism.

  • http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Jon%20Stewart%20on%20Stephen%20Colbbert%27s%20Show.jpgFebruary 28, 2017 | Jon Stewart tunneled from his farm to Stephen Colbert's desk where he encouraged the media to get over its breakup with President Trump on The Late Show Monday.
  • Stewart spoke about the President's contentious relationship with the press, from attacks on specific news outlets like CNN and Buzzfeed, to outright lying. "Nobody says 'believe me' unless they are lying," Stewart said. But Stewart also urged the media stop hanging on Trump's every falsehood and attack, and insisted it was time for the press to "get its groove back."
