When blindly-devoted leeches gathered at the annual WEF meeting in Davos last month, a theme emerged about “defending truth” because “global trust in institutions is eroding.” Rather than addressing why most of the plebeian class no longer has confidence in narratives that some politicos filter into mainstream media lapdogs’ hands with help from the technocracy thought police, the WEF ringleaders of Romanesque bread and circuses bemoaned free speech and the contemporary Internet. They also intimated a lack of literacy among readership who require “integrity and enhancing transparency for addressing the spread of false information to preserve a healthy trust ecosystem.”
World Economic Forum Declares “Disinformation” to be the World’s Greatest Threat… “The international elite of experts have declared that the number one threat to humanity is not terrorism or pandemic or even climate change (which is second), but ‘misinformation and disinformation.’ Of course, that means that the only hope for humanity is censorship and speech controls. The report shows just how engrained this anti-free speech movement has become among the world elite from media to business to politics.” – Jonathan Turley, Jan. 12
In other words, they mused openly with contempt over minions they view as idiots or useless disinformation absorbers who are unable to ascertain facts through discernment instead of accepting propaganda, coercion, censorship, and a ministry of truth without question. Here is an excerpt from “Targeting Infoterrorism” in Part 1 of this series:
“We are at war and in hybrid fifth-generation warfare (5GW) that is replete with distorted narratives and perceptions being waged on our minds. It is imperative during this dystopian era to engender the idiom ‘a mind is a terrible thing to waste’ in all aspects of your life amid the reality of current geopolitical and domestic affairs. Resorting to a ‘head in the sand’ mentality with hope that it all goes away and our world can return to whatever normal used to be is an exercise in futility.” – TraderStef, Aug. 2023
A highlight amid the WEF’s meetings, workshops, and filet mignon was when legacy media leaders and government cohorts grumbled that corporate conglomerates are no longer “owning” the mediasphere.
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re misinformed.” – Mark Twain
“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to hide.” – Edward Snowden
WSJ editor-in-chief whines about not controlling news narrative – WEF, Jan. 2024 (timestamp 9:21-12:03)
It is no surprise that at least 191,000 workers at U.S.-based technology companies have been laid off since 2023, and the publishing industry is also in the throes of massive layoffs while cutting publications and operations.
Mainstream media bloodbath: News outlets slash jobs as business suffers… “Nearly a dozen mainstream media companies are gutting staff and scrambling to rescue their struggling businesses. The media business is shrinking at the national, state and local levels — a scary, stark new reality for thousands of journalists. Media cuts were so severe last year that most industry observers weren’t expecting such intense cutbacks in 2024. But an ongoing bloodbath is decimating news outlets nationwide. It’s also fueling a new round of conflict between unions and management as tensions run high.” – Axios, Jan. 26
When the U.S. was on the verge of a recession in the past, newspaper and magazine publishers were usually the first to see advertising dollars disappear, and rumors would circulate among staff in office towers that job cuts were imminent. A similar dynamic is now occurring, but it includes major shifts in the post-pandemic workforce, advances in technology over the last two decades, losses in readership bases due to woke culture, an awareness that the national security state and intelligence agencies employ handlers for the mediasphere, and an epiphany over a censorship-industrial complex following Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter’s social media mob.
A defining moment within the alternative media ecosystem occurred when Tucker Carlson was abruptly released from his top-rated primetime show at Fox News in the spring of 2023. Within a few weeks, he announced a collaboration with Twitter and began publishing interviews that outnumber legacy media viewership by hundreds of millions and subsequently launched a subscription-based business in Dec. 2023 that’s branded the Tucker Carlson Network (TCN).
Tucker was spotted in Moscow this past weekend, and independent media reports suggested an interview with President Putin was in the cards. Legacy media immediately puked hypocrisy with disapproval and conveniently dismissed the old days of actual investigative journalism. Examples include CNN when they interviewed Saddam Hussein from Baghdad in 1991 amid the Gulf War, sat down with Osama bin Laden somewhere in the Middle East in 1997 after he declared “jihad against the U.S.” prior to 9/11, and other networks have conducted many more interviews with notable personalities since the 1970s.
Why We’re Interviewing Vladimir Putin – Tucker Carlson, Feb. 6
The insanity that streams across my desk daily has not let up, but the amount of disinformation and political agendas being exposed is explosive and driving an already contentious presidential election year into uncharted territory. With geopolitical tensions not seen since WW2 and domestic issues brewing across all fronts, 2024 will be a year to remember if we can survive without blowing up the planet in the process. Let’s close shop tonight with a reminder of how endemic the flow of fake news is and a presser from Capitol Hill today with a hoard of GOP House members who excoriated politicos and the mainstream media for pushing a false “insurrection” narrative and what they’re doing about it.
