"It is the function of
the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach
the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment
spend any amount of money on arms."
John Stockwell, former CIA official

"Today reporters write
the stories that their masters want to hear, or they are out.
The function of editors is to make certain that no uncomfortable
information reaches the public."

"Google was supposed to
have been a program helping people to find information on the
web, but as soon as Google had monopolized the search market,
the corporation moved to control the search results. This has
resulted in Google censoring ideas and opinions across the spectrum
of public discourse."

"Corporate media pump 'news'
that promotes their interests, their corporate advertisers' interests,
corporate-friendly parties' and governments' interests to wealthy
media consumers who often work for corporations. It is this system
that is routinely described as a 'free press'."

"The source of 'fake news'
is a journalism self-anointed with a false respectability: a 'liberal'
journalism that claims to challenge corrupt state power but, in
reality, courts and protects it."

"It is not one or two reporters
or television hosts who are corrupt. The media institutions are
corrupt. Many media workers, especially those based in Washington,
work shamelessly for our elites."
Chris Hedges, 2009
"Over the last three decades,
the Washington Post has evolved into a neoconservative propaganda
sheet, especially its opinion section which fronted for George
W. Bush's false Iraq-WMD claims, led the long-term bashing of
Iraq War critics, and defends whatever actions the Israeli government
takes, including the recent war in Gaza and apparently its desire
to preemptively bomb Iran."
Robert Parry, 2009
"If you were to say to
normal Americans that members of Congress leave office and make
millions of dollars doing nothing other than essentially peddling
influence to wealthy individuals who can have their way with Congress,
most people would consider that to be corruption. Yet, to members
of the media, who have spent their lives in Washington, who are
friends and colleagues of the people who are engorging themselves
on this corrupt system that is just the way of life. It's like
breathing air or drinking water. It's not anything that's noteworthy,
let alone controversial."
Glenn Greenwald, 2009
