TRUTH-TELLERS

 

"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct.
Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.
If you're right and you know it, speak your mind.
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth."

Mahatma Gandhi

INDEPENDENT VOICES COMMITTED TO THE TRUTH

 


Tulsi Gabbard

 

"The mainstream media is a conglomerate of collective corporate thought, designed to make you ignorant and unaware of the realities of the world, of the important issues, and to hide in the shadows the sacredly guarded truths of power. Our mainstream media - the large newspapers, radio and TV news stations - are dominated by billion dollar corporations, whose boards of directors reflect the 'who's who' of the corporate, political, and financial elite, with former government officials, industrialists, and bankers controlling the dispersal of information and the perspectives we are given."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, 2012

 


Carroll Quigley / Charles Hugh Smith / Ramin Mazaheri / Thierry Meyssan

 

"Most media are part of huge conglomerates, and the policy that comes down is that you don't rock any boats. You can't make the government upset because the value of the company is the broadcast licenses, and the government will not renew them, and we can't make our corporate owners mad because they will fire us, and we can't make the advertisers mad or they will pull their advertising. So the media can't say anything that will upset the power structure. And that's what had happened to the press."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2012

 


Alex Anfruns / Abby Martin / Justin Raimondo / William O. Douglas

 

"Media disinformation has become institutionalized. The lies and fabrications have become increasingly blatant when compared to the 1970s. The US media has become the mouthpiece of US foreign policy. Disinformation is routinely "planted" by CIA operatives in the newsroom of major dailies, magazines and TV channels."

Michel Chossudovsky, 2010

 


Angus Mackenzie / Rob Kall / Dennis Bernstein

 

"The job of a journalist should not be to balance the news; it is to discern the truth, to investigate the truth, and to convey the truth to the American people."

Robert Kennedy, Jr, 2009

 


Barrett Brown / John Perkins / Henry Giroux / Randall Robinson

 

"The House of Rothschild bought Reuters news service in the 1800's. Within the last 20 years, Reuters bought the Associated Press. Now the Elite own the two largest wire services in the world, where most newspapers get their news. The Rothschilds have control of all three U.S. Networks, plus other aspects of the recording and mass media industry."

Eustice Mullins, 1991

 


Roger D Harris / Ron Forthofer / Melvin Goodman / Peter Lavelle

 

"One of the most dangerous influences of the media on our decisions, and one of the most tragic, is their tendency to desensitize the public to the horrific nature of war and violence. In the hands of the mainstream media, war has become a "political necessity" devoid of the human tragedies that in more sensible times make war a last, desperate resort."

Elliot D. Cohen and Bruce W. Fraser
