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

 


Seymour Hersch

 

"Google and Facebook should be considered as public utilities or even agencies which have usurped governmental powers over the Internet. According to formal US laws such corporations must be deemed illegal trusts in breach of civil and criminal law. They would need to be punitively fined, their owners and officers convicted, and the corporations broken up.
But the formal political government of the United States does nothing about them. Perhaps the reason for the inaction is that the monopoly of the tech giants - together with that of the traditional media - suits the interests of the shadow government of the elite, the Deep State."

Jon Hellevig, 2019

 


Hugo Chavez / Robert Kennedy Jr. / Eric Draitser

 

"The CIA will find young journalists and mentor them. Suddenly doors will open up, rewards will be given, and you owe your entire career to them. That's essentially how it works. I was publishing articles under my own name written by agents of the CIA and other intelligence services. I was taught to lie, to betray and not to tell the truth to the public."

Udo Ulfkotte, a German journalist

 


Norman Finkelstein / Barbara Loe Fisher / C. Wright Mills / William Domhoff

 

"The mainstream media will never tell us that the reason why Washington has been at war for half of the last two centuries is because of US imperialism. They will never tell us that the ceaseless interventions are driven by an insatiable greed for resources, or often enough by the simple desire to plunge a country into chaos if its recalcitrant leaders refuse to genuflect appropriately and show due respect."

Federico Pieraccini, 2019

 


David Wise / Dennis Judd / / Doug Henwood / Daniel Larison

 

"Propaganda is most effective when our consent is engineered by those with a fine education -Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Columbia -and with careers on the BBC, the Guardian, the New York Times, the Washington Post."

John Pilger, 2018

 


Howard Zinn / Stephen Lendman / Sherri Tenpenny / James Howard Kunstler

 

"The media are a pitiful lot. They don't give us any history, they don't give us any analysis, they don't tell us anything. They don't raise the most basic questions: Who has the most weapons of mass destruction in the world by far? Who has used weapons of mass destruction more than any other nation? Who has killed more people in this world with weapons of mass destruction than any other nation? The answer: the United States."

Howard Zinn

 


Anthony Watts / Ranier Shea / Richard Wolff / Del Bigtree

 

"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR} control or own major newspapers, magazines, radio and television networks and the most powerful companies in the book publishing business."

Admiral Chester Ward, former CFR member
