It would be a mistake to regard the CIA as unique in its involvement in Hollywood.
The industry is in fact fundamentally open to manipulation by a range of state agencies. In 2000, it emerged that the White House’s drug war officers had spent tens of millions of dollars paying the major US networks to inject anti-drug plots into the scripts of primetime series such as ER, The Practice, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Chicago Hope.
Despite criticism for this blatant propagandizing, the government continued to employ this method of spreading its message on drugs.

The White House went to Tinsel Town again the following year when, on November 11, 2001 a meeting was held in Hollywood between President Bush’s then Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, and representatives of each of the major Hollywood studios to discuss how the film industry might contribute to the ‘War on Terror.’
Jack Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America said with a straight face that, "content was off the table", but Rove had clearly outlined a series of requests.
It is hard to gauge the consequences of the meeting, but a Rambo sequel, for instance, was certainly discussed, and duly produced.

Very interesting information on the involvement of the CIA in hollywood.
Some movies can have such an impact on people that they can well be used for social engineering purposes.
Some movies could start a cultural revolution.
I am sure that the CIA sees hollywood as a powerfull weapon to exploit and contain for their own use.

A lot of the time i am quite sure i can spot the obvious example movies because they tend to be more B plot movies with out in the open propaganda.
In fact i think there has been so many of these sponsred B movie productions that i personaly have grown dull from looking more critical at some thibngs i watch.

But i am sure there are plenty of very well crafted sponsored movies and TV series where the social manipulation is much deeper under the surface in much more hidden powerfull concepts.

It always amazes me how some movies can predict or depict so many things perfectly way ahead of its time.
Video games where arabs are the enemy in middle east theaters came out by the many just prior to the start of the second gulf war.

Some much more interesting exaples in the posted article.

so many things are "propaganda" if you think about. It's funny because if you don't pay attention then you won't care. If you don't care then how much does it affect your thinking? Most of the mediums for "propaganda"
are perfect because they're in places most people don't to give much a thought to.

Ever notice how many movies came out over the last 15 years with black U.S. President's in them? Ever notice how many movies came out over the last 15 years depicting the end of the world? Well, we got our black president. Makes one wonder if the end of the world is truly around the next bend.......kinda like "they" know something we don't.

Maybe the Government uses Hollywood to push for social change to get people to thinking the way they want to. Did you know that the Government was heavily involved in the Transformers movie just released? I don't know if Hollywood is for propaganda but either the government really cares about people and wants Hollywood to push for social changes they think are important, or, it's a conspiracy, and they just want to brainwash people. I'm torn on things like this...

I think it is clear that some media people conspire with some government agencies to push their agenda.
There are some clear references at the end of the article i posted, and the transformers movie is mentioned in the article to.
I did'nt want to quote to large pieces from the article to keep fair use in mind.

TV and films can be used for brainwashing purposes and there are some topics on this forum trying to get in to this subject.
A very interesting topic to look into i find.

For populations to accept, gov's ''1984'' behaviors, to build the NWO
they most be brainwashed first, that's where Hollywood is use as a
propaganda tool.

The Fox TV (series) 24 with our friend Jack Bauer, is the biggest
TV propaganda campaign, to programed populations to accept
G. W. Bush's War on terrorists lie to lead us all into the New World Order
secret agenda to buid a one world government.

Just think about it for a minute...


- Black President Palmer to help Elites's Puppet Barack Obama get elected
Bush was using the stick strategy to push us into the NWO, Obama will be
using the carrot, to pull us all, in to it, like a wolf disquise as a shepherd...

- torture scenes to justify Afganistan and Irak criminal torture techniques

- Terrorists attack scenes ( subway, toxic gaz, virus, etc ) to promot fears
and Anxiety, to justify the war on terror and backup Government news warnings

- Musulman terrorists actors as a mind control strategy to make us all
beleive, middle east wars are justify.

- get population emotionaly guilty to critics our soldiers in middle east
by dedicating some episodes to soldiers who died on combat in Irak or
Afgannistan at the end of specific episodes.

- Scenarios of martial law decision, to prepare population for it and accept it.

- Our friend, Jack Bauer devoted attitude to Government decisions as a
mind control influence on populations behaviors.


the propaganda exemples, use in this TV serie, is endless...
to succeed to have that much success with a tv serie, they have secretly,
all the resources they need to make '' 24 '' the most popular, propaganda
campaign since WW2

wow, i never thought about it, but it really could be possible.
after all, historically, gov did used communicaton tools as
propaganda, like newspapers, poster etc now it's technology's turn
to be use as propaganda and 24 is definitely a pro-government, tv serie

season 3 of FOX ''24'' tv serie, was about a deadly virus witch could kill
millions of victims, the same year, all TV News broadcast chanels warned
all populations about the virus N5N1 Pendamic risk, news was saying
'' it's not if but when it will happen..'' remember.

when elites depopulation agenda will happen, some will think it happened
but nobody knows why and some will beleive it's a terrorist attack but
few will think it's a inside job.

season 2 and 4 an 6 were about nuclear terrorist attack who involved
middle east terrorists, and all those years we saw our puppet president
G.W.Bush repeatly warned us about Iran and the need to control middle east.

season 6 was about possible war between US and Russia and China
we are seing more and more tentions between those countries, since
georgia conflic and US missile defense shield program project in europe.
is that to make us think, WW3 as not been planned when we will see it happen.

the US propaganda exemples in FOX ''24 '' TV serie are endless.
mind control over populations, thats what it is.

can you find more hidden propaganda in ''24''...

i don't trust Hollywood movies or any TV series anymore, we would all
think clearly if we avoid those propaganda tools.

there is only one solution, do as i did, take your tv set and
get rid of it, internet is the only media you can search and
find the real truth about what is going on in the world.

I cut my television cable 5 years ago as a try out and i still didnt plug it back in.
And there are many more things you can do than just read books.

Recently i went to the movies and i can clearly see how powerfull of a tool movies and tv are.
The whole next day i have these images in my head as if i was almost there, and this was just an easy going movie.
I can only imagine what a tv series like 24 can do to you, and i am happy i dont have to endure that stuff any more in an uncontroled manner.

Do you want a very good exemple of'' 24'' mind control technique
to ancre emotional reaction to a specific propaganda news

take a look at this video of FOX News, interview of a UN ambassador
who is using propaganda fear tactics to prepare us for the upcoming
war with Iran.

'' CTU '' Head office phone ring of the tv serie ''24''

a powerful sound, a strategy to get the population attention to
psychologicly influence our mind to the propaganda about Iran
and to justify the war of terror, using tv news

tv are programing us, it's a weapon against populations
we have to ( get mad as hell ) and get back control of
our world.

your exemple with 24, is really motivating me to stop
watching tv

posted on Feb, 5 2009 @ 04:30 PM
do you have others exemples of TV series, using
mind control propaganda or more from ''24'' ...?

posted on Feb, 5 2009 @ 05:32 PM
I've posted something like this back in June of 08...messages in movies the amount of movies that came out since 2000 are:

2000 =8

2001 =17

2002 =10

2003 =9

2004 =8

2005 =8

2006 =7

2007 =4

2008 =2

Granted, these are just a quick search, but most I think were sold in US. However, none that I see ever made list of top grossing films of all time.

So why pump all this money into movies even though track records show that over a period of time, you might not even break even....? What's the tradeoff?

movies and TV series are definitely use by elites as mind control
and propaganda tools .

24 is a strong and Unconscious Social psychological conditioning
to back up Elites and Gov. new world order, decisions

posted on Feb, 5 2009 @ 08:00 PM

I guess so... but I've come to the conclusion that it goes a little deepr than propaganda.

same can be said for the music industry.
