Why Corporate Media Are Dying: A Humble Example

“But I suppose the most revolutionary act one can engage in is… to tell the truth.”
― Howard Zinn

A few days after the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack I sent the following letter to the editor of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette:

“The Pearl Harbor attack was no surprise to FDR and his top advisors. They planned it. Since 1932 exercises had proven Pearl Harbor extremely vulnerable to surprise aircraft carrier attack. Japan patterned its attack on these results. At Roosevelt’s request, Arthur H. McCollum—Office of Naval Intelligence and an expert on Japan—submitted an 8-step plan on October 7, 1940, designed to provoke the Japanese into firing the first shot. An expert on the navy, Roosevelt put all steps into play. Roosevelt fired fleet commander James O. Richardson, the top authority on Pacific naval warfare and Japanese strategy, February 1, 1941, for his opposition to FDR’s “illogical basing of the fleet at Hawaii.”  FDR deployed American warships in Japanese territorial waters to provoke the first shot. Seizure of Japanese assets in the U.S. in July, 1941, terminated trade between the countries. Identical orders from the British and Dutch effectively cut off all oil from Japan, leaving it one year’s supply in reserve and no peaceful prospects for new supplies. By October, 1940, U.S. cryptographers broke the Japanese military codes yet all crucial messages were denied Commanders Kimmel and Short at Pearl. FDR refused to meet with a desperate, peace-seeking Konoe government, causing its collapse in October, succeeded by militaristic Tojo. The “Vacant Sea” policy went into effect November 25 to empty the north Pacific of all traffic, allowing Yamamoto’s fleet to steam 12 unmolested days toward the attack point north of Pearl.”

This letter met the 250 word maximum but was never published.  Naturally I never expected it to be published.  The facts about the attack are terribly inconvenient, now aren’t they?  The best policy apparently is to ignore the truth, the relevant facts of how that attack succeeded.  That’s the “news” business all too often.  The corporate media impose narrow limits on allowable conversation to retain their “access” to the powerful plus avoid upsetting their declining advertisers and readers.  But a major reason readership keeps heading south is their predictable covering up for the regime!  Virtually everybody knows major media cover up.

As an economist friend of mine said, universities need sparks sometimes.  That is true of the media too.  Let’s get it on!  Or, OK, go ahead, persevere in your blackball policies and die if you choose.

    I don’t believe there is such a thing as “corporate media.” What we have is state-controlled media meticulously disguised as private corporate media. It’s a magic trick. All major media are controlled by intelligence agencies and are likely to be fake corporations with fake owners.

    • Funny you should suggest that the major media are just “fronts” for U.S. intelligence agencies. There is not much evidence for a conclusion that strong but I duly note that Frank Gardiner Wisner, onetime head of the CIA’s Office of Policy Coordination, referred to “his intelligence-gathering and propaganda network during the early years of the cold war…[as] his ‘Mighty Wurlitzer.'” Operation Mockingbird, the CIA project launched in the late 1940s to recruit American journalists and media companies for Agency propaganda work was overseen by Wisner, Allen Dulles and Richard Helms (the latter two later became Directors of Central Intelligence), and over time the Agency’s media assets included ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, AP, UPI, Reuters, The New York Times, etc. At its height Mockingbird allegedly involved 25 news organizations and 400 journalists (source: W. Thomas Smith, Jr., Encyclopedia of The Central Intelligence Agency, 2003). Meanwhile, the little old Democrat Gazette down here in Arkansas just announced that it will eliminate eight positions to cut costs “because of the downturn in advertising that has affected newspapers across the nation in the fourth quarter” of last year. Over the last three years the newspaper has eliminated “the equivalent of 65 full-time employees through attrition,” said newspaper president and GM Lynn Hamilton. A lot of the media, even majors players, are truly corporate and depend for their livelihood on voluntary subscriber fees and advertising revenues, not subventions from lyin’ intel agencies. Of course, the legacy media continue on their death march by avoiding facts that implicate politicians, bureaucrats and military-intelligence-complex in nefarious deeds. Well, unless Donald Trump is their target and then the alleged facts the media put out usually turn out not to be facts at all.

        On February 9, 1917,
        Congressman Oscar Callaway inserted the following statement in the Congressional Record.

        In March, 1915, the J.P.
        Morgan interests. . . and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men
        high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential
        newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control
        generally the policy of the daily press of the United States. These 12 men worked the problem out by
        selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain
        only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the
        daily press throughout the country. They
        found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest
        papers. The 25 papers were agreed upon;
        the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was
        furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding
        the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things
        of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the
        purchasers. This contract is in
        existence at the present time, and it accounts for the news columns of the
        daily press of the country being filled with all sorts of preparedness
        arguments. . . .9

        By 1917, J.P. Morgan and his associates
        controlled twenty-five of our most influential newspapers.

    We the people are not the consumers of news. We are the targets of the protection racket of the mainstream media elites and other felons.
    The one-world-death-and-slavery-system-for-all MSM elites do not need to sell for money their products tp we their targets. They just need us to pay our consideration in the form of consuming it and reacting to it.
