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

 


Christopher Bollyn

 

"America's fate was sealed when the public and the anti-war movement bought the government's 9/11 conspiracy theory. The government's account of 9/11 is contradicted by much evidence. Nevertheless, this defining event of our time, which has launched the U.S. on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic police state, is a taboo topic for investigation in the media."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2010

 


Isa Blumi / Ross Ashcroft / Alexander Solzhenitsyn / Andrew Cockburn

 

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false."

CIA Director William Casey (1981-1987)

 


Catherine Frompovich / Andrew Lobaczewski / Walden Bello / Antony Sutton

 

"As a journalist, if you produce dissenting reports, there are many ways to get you back in line quickly. If you don't follow the guidelines, you will not keep your job long. This system works pretty well, and it reflects established power structures.
The point is that journalists wouldn't be there unless they had already demonstrated that nobody has to tell them what to write because they are going say the right thing. If they had started off at the Metro desk, or something, and had pursued the wrong kind of stories, they never would have made it to the positions where they can now say anything they like. They have been through the socialization system."

Noam Chomsky, 1997

 


Joe Martino / Fletcher Prouty / John Kenneth Galbraith / Jeremy Corbyn

 

"The news media are instruments of those who exercise political and economic power. Newspapers, periodicals, radio and television stations do not act independently."

AP journalist Herbert Altschull

 


Gary Allen / Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth / Miri Wood / Tariq Ali

 

"No country in the world has a press that's more dishonest than the United States of America does. Only people who possess a thoroughly scientific orientation toward confirming and disconfirming allegations, are capable of extracting from such 'news' a realistic understanding of what's actually happening. The vast majority of people can be fooled, and they can be fooled constantly and even for decades, and yet still trust the institutions that have deceived them so mercilessly through all of those decades."

Eric Zuesse, 2019

 


Wikileaks / Wlliam Sloane Coffin / Russ Baker / Miko Peled

 

"Media corporations function like giant magnifying glasses that roam the world, highlighting facts that benefit corporate-friendly parties, leaders, allied states and voices. They also magnify facts that undermine and harm corporate-unfriendly parties, leaders, groups and voices."

David Edwards and David Cromwell, 2018
