Udo Ulfkotte was an international journalist for many years. During the period of his reporting for the German main daily newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), he gained first-hand knowledge of what really took place between various agencies and journalists. He explained how journalists were bribed to write articles free of truth, facts, and with a decidedly pro-Western, pro-NATO bent or, in other words, propaganda.
He made this shocking confession:
I have been a journalist for about 25 years. During that time I was taught to always lie, betray, and never tell the truth to the public. I was paid by the CIA, American billionaires, secret services, etc. to push for war with Russia. Journalists in Europe and all over the world are used to manipulate the public.
Ulfkotte’s best-selling book, Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists) was ignored by mainstream German news media when it was released in 2014. Any mainstream journalist would have lost his/her job for reporting on the book. The English translation under the title, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News was published in May 2017 (a few months after the death of Ulfkotte), but the book appears to have been suppressed throughout North America and Europe. Many of the larger online bookstores display the status as Currently unavailable, No stock or Not available for sale.
This is a book containing subject matter that details the role of the media in publishing news that is not factual. Its unavailability in stores and disappearance from the market place reveal that there are powerful forces working to prevent it from being easily accessed by the public.
The film, Busted! Media Crimes Exposed by David Sorensen (Stop World Control) contains excerpts from Ulfkotte and other journalists and sources revealing the role of the media. According to Julian Assange:
One of the hopeful things that I’ve discovered is that nearly every war that has started in the past 50 years has been a result of media lies. The media could have stopped it if they searched deep enough, if they hadn’t reprinted government propaganda, they could have stopped it.
Our number one enemy is ignorance and I believe that is the number one enemy of everyone.
Speaking about the pandemic, European virologist Marc Van Ranst described his role:
You have one opportunity to do it right. Day one is so important.
Hans Nijenhuis, chief editor of a leading newspaper in The Netherlands, revealed who really positions political leaders. It is the media.
CNN director Charlie Chester explained the use of fear in their news stories.
Because fear sells.
Such as fear regarding climate change or the pandemic.
It leads us to the question: Are all the news agencies independent?
It is amusing to watch the compilation in the video, above, where several media outlets repeat the same statement about our holiday shopping habits. That is a trivial issue and can be dismissed. But they get their talking points from their masters and are paid to lie not just about minor matters but about everything. Viruses and pandemics. Wars. Climate and the warming globe. Politics, politicians and governments. And right now, about the Ukraine war with their anti-Russian propaganda.
The mainstream media lies. And the gullible audiences lap up the lies and repeat them. The media dictates what is good for us and what we should do. And its loyal reporters repeat warnings about what they deem hazardous to our way of life and system of government.
But the reality is that it is the large and powerful mass media outlets and their journalists who are the ones extremely dangerous to our democracy.
