"The many years of lies
- 9/11, Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, al Qaeda connections,
yellowcake, anthrax attack, Iranian nukes, the bombings of weddings,
funerals, and children's soccer games, Abu Ghraib, renditions,
Guantanamo, various fabricated "terrorist plots," the
determined assault on civil liberties - have taken their toll
on American credibility. No one outside America any longer believes
the US media or the US government."

"Rather than a newspaper
committed to the truth and favoring a broad debate about important
issues, the Washington Post has become an enforcement mechanism
for a neocon-dominated Establishment, setting the parameters for
permissible points of view and twisting facts for that purpose."

"There was a time in America
when the press and the government were on opposite sides of the
field. The press was supposed to speak on behalf of the people.
The new tradition is that the press speaks on behalf of the government."

"Bilderberg is a powerful
assembly of the world's leading financiers, industrialists and
political operatives. It includes such internationalists as banker
David Rockefeller, heads of state in Europe and high officials
of the U.S. government, White House, Defense, State, Congress
High officials of The Washington Post, The New York Times, and
Los Angeles Times and of all three major networks have attended
Bilderberg many times, on the promise of secrecy, to report nothing
and to not use the word "Bilderberg.

"If you've ever wondered
what motivates corporate media journalists to spend so much time
on Twitter defending the powerful and attacking the disempowered,
this is your answer. They spend their own free time smearing Jill
Stein, calling Jeremy Corbyn an antisemite, attacking Julian Assange,
supporting longtime neoconservative war agendas against Russia,
Syria and Iran and uncritically reporting intelligence agency
assertions as fact, not because there's a CIA officer hovering
over their shoulder at all times telling them exactly what to
tweet, but because they're auditioning for a job. They're creating
a public record of their establishment loyalism which current
and future employers will look at when weighing hiring and promotion
decisions, which is why both journalism schools and journalism
employers now encourage journalists to cultivate a social media
presence to "build their brand", i.e. their public resume."
Caitlin Johnstone, 2018
"Along with other social
media platforms with whom it shares tips and information, Facebook
has begun targeting voices from, and in defense of, nations targeted
by the U.S. State Department for regime change. However, it's
not just Russians any more: some of the voices silenced in the
semi-regular sweeping round of bans include Cubans, Venezuelans,
Iranians, and Chinese as well."
"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 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.
The same is mostly true of university faculty in the more ideological
disciplines. They have been through the socialization system."
