John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Times, made this candid confession1 when asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club:
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.
If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. "
[It's worth noting that Swinton was called "The Dean of His Profession" by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]
American God Father David Rockefeller’s confession1 at the 1991 Bilderberg (secretive global elite group) meeting at Baden, Germany, would support John Swinton’s conviction as follows:
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.
It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries." [Incidentally the meeting was also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and by Republican Dan Quayle. The current President Obama had to attend2 the secretive Bilderberg meeting prior to choosing his running mate Joe Biden for the 2008 Presidential campaign selected by Bilderberg regular and corporate elitist James A. Johnson!].
Since the time of Spanish War, US media re-invented and embraced Yellow Journalism when Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer sold the non-existent Spanish War to the American people in support of hegemony assuring on site reporters "… You furnish the pictures, I'll furnish the war". Since then Pulitzer Prize winners mainly advanced Yellow Journalism in USA and around the world with utmost deception disrespecting journalistic oaths.
To add fuel to the fire The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) since inception after WWII initiated Operation MOCKINGBIRD3 — to recruit American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda. The effort was headed by Frank Wisner, Allan Dulles, Richard Helms and Philip Graham. Graham was publisher of The Washington Post, which became a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA’s media assets would include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more. By the CIA’s own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists become CIA assets. Subsequently, “The CIA had infiltrated the nation's businesses, media, and universities with tens of thousands of on-call operatives by the 1950's. CIA Director Dulles had staffed the CIA almost exclusively with Ivy League graduates, especially from Yale with figures like George Herbert Walker Bush from the ‘Skull and Crossbones’ Society”4 .
In 'Fooling America: A Talk by Robert Parry'4, the well known reporter who broke the Iran-Contra story had said, "The people who succeeded and did well were those who didn't stand up, who didn't write the big stories, who looked the other way when history was happening in front of them, and went along either consciously or just by cowardice with the deception of the American people."
In an October 1977 article published by Rolling Stone magazine5, Carl Bernstein, who had worked with Bob Woodward in the investigation of Watergate, reported that more than 400 American journalists worked for the CIA including many honoured with Pulitzer Prize. He went on to disclose that the New York Times, America’s most respected newspaper at the time, was one of the CIA’s closest media collaborators. Seeking to spread the blame, the New York Times published an article in December 1977, revealing that “more than eight hundred news and public information organisations and individuals,” had participated in the CIA’s covert subversion of the media.
Thus the group of people who historically wanted the whole world as their promise land managed to hold key monarchy, military, evangelist (as Holy See and SMOM in UN), mining, business, political, legal, strategist, analyst, scientific, media ownership and Anchor positions and have been working coherently towards re-establishing New World Order of Nobles and Aristocrats at the cost of the Old World even sacrificing own people as collateral damages! That’s why Pulitzer, one of the founders of Yellow Journalism established “Pulitzer Award” to convert world journalism to Yellow! Rhodes (proponent of recolonization) Scholarships bred scholars as preachers for the United Kingdom of Israel around the world. Rockefeller and Ford Foundations and their Funds have been promoting and supporting evangelism through NGOs, commanded by secretive Bilderberg and Trilateral Commission, that divides ancient people encouraging fighting among each other, undermining common bonds and cultures, as the victims of organized disinformation and secretive Censorship. In true journalism there should be nothing like negative or positive about news – they should be reported as they happen without bias and black outs prevalent in present day aristocratic worldwide media monopoly.
It may sound like biased propaganda but it’s a reality as the monarchist alliances regrouped themselves through World War I & II gaining steam for the final episode of world war III to occupy the promise world nullifying all revolutions towards democratic governments and society! The massive Evangelic propaganda of ‘Second coming of violent Christ’ and ‘End of the World’, which resemble more like Alexander the Conqueror or Caesar - weeding out 2/3rd of world population, are all part of a systematic manipulations of world opinion towards the acceptance of population control that perpetuate Monarchial Supremacy supported by few Bankers and Elites.
It’s all started with Hellenism in Greece destroying ancient democracy installing aristocratic nobility! The process gained steam looting rich Persia and conquering Rome contributing to Greco-Roman Empire. The Monarchs and Elites became coined Jews and Christians for convenient cover while working meticulously towards the goal of absolute power maintaining intelligence and communications with each other. As Jews they persecuted Hebrews! As Christians they orchestrated crusades against Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Hebrew Jews!
Ever wonder who funds these wars? Who is funding wars for Bankrupt America destroying American souls and image? Who funded Alexander the conqueror for massive invasions, massacres, occupations, and dominations around the ancient world creating Dorian Greek Empire? Who funded Caesar’s long barbaric campaign against the civilized Romans which eventually created Greco-Roman Hellenistic Empire? Who funded Hitler’s military and war machinery when Germany was choking from cruel allied sanctions and restrictions spelt in the Versailles treaty? Who has been funding American War on Terror when Bush Administration bankrupted the Government with 500 plus billion deficits and 2.3 trillion missing Pentagon funds? Who has been gaining out of all these wars and evangelic campaigns while most humans suffer physically, psychologically, and environmentally?
Well, once again, it would be obvious from Ex-Bilderberg Chairman and Chairman of Trilateral Commission David Rockefeller’s speech at the United Nations (UN), September 14, 1994:
“This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long - We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” It seems that the invention of virtual Al-Qaeda, subsequent 9/11, War-on-terror, Anthrax Attacks, US/NATO Aggressions, Financial Melt Down, spreading worldwide fear of dirty Nukes, Pandemic Virus, and ‘End of the World” are all part of that intended “right major crisis”?
“Al-Qaeda threats were just a grand deception, a clever ploy to tie up our resources and expend our energies on a phantom enemy that lacked both the power and the will to carry the battle to us.” Steve Cambone, Former Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, proposed to then CIA Director, George Tenet who replied: “No, this is not a deception, and, no, I do not need a second opinion.… We are going to get hit. It’s only a matter of time.” 
Historically CIA is a covert extension of UK’s MI6 after WWII to re-annex USA and so is Pakistan’s ISI to work outside British accountability for the United Monarchical colonial advantage against democratic free world!
"If the United States ever experiences an attempt at a coup to overthrow the government, it will come from the CIA. The agency represents a tremendous power$$ and total unaccountability to anyone." --JFK (John F. Kennedy, 35th President of USA, assassinated on Nov 23, 1963)
$$- CIA’s black budget is almost equal to UK’s Defense Budget?
Recently Ex-President Bill Clinton was asked during his speech in Toronto, Canada, August 29, 2009 on “Embracing Our Common Humanity” where Clinton tried to explain “why his country is so reluctant to change the way it delivers health care”. He said that in the U.S., there were "incentives to keep people misinformed and full of fear." - Sunny Freeman, The Canadian Press
"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any controlling private power." – Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of USA
Thus, it is time to take over Media, NEOCONS infected Governments and Agencies which are dysfunctional and irresponsibly working against the very citizens who they are supposed to serve with utmost honesty, sincerity, and visibility. It is also time to dismantle Constitutional Monarchs and their elitist Monarchial NATO, secretive Swiss Bank, and Aristocrative Bilderberg that works with Mafia like secrecy, for the benefit of worldwide participatory democracy, lasting peace, and sustainable green economy in a neighbourly world void of Covert Intelligences and Private Defence Industries. It is also time to dissociate Holy See and SMOM from UN to guarantee ‘Separation of Church and State’ and ‘religious plurality’ to end evangelism-inflicted religious violence/persecution around the world.
