Ok folks, this is my first thread here so be easy with me.
I wanted to talk about the recent spin control of certain news stories that I have observed over the last few months. Has anyone else noticed an
increase of a 1984 style media control?
Take for example, the story at Ft. Hood. As it was breaking and happening live the news media reported that a number of gunmen with automatic weapons
had opened fire at Ft. hood. Originally one gunman was reported killed, another had barricaded himself in somewhere with hostages and a third was on
the loose. Then it was one gunman who was shot dead and later was not shot dead. Nidal Malik Hasan. All by himself he murdered 12 service people and
wounded 31 others one of whom would not make it. At this point in the story the automatic weapons disappeared and Hasan was said to of been able to do
this much damage by firing two handguns at the same time. However any recreational shooter that has fired from both hands knows that your aim is
reduced to squat when shoot like that. From there the story changed again to Hasan, bringing two handguns but only using one.
From three gunmen with automatic weapons, one KOA, one holed up with hostages, and one on the lamb the story changed into one man with two handguns
but only used one gun. Extended clip.
Today the news media says the Hasan, was in contact Anwar al-Awlaki, who just also happened to be in contact with some of those September Eleventh
Now I understand how confusion runs rampant with unfolding events but the type spin this story got goes well past confusion.
the role al-Awlaki will play in the next story.
Enter Umar Farouk. Originally a firecracker that turned out to be a homemade IED failed to explode. The suspect was thwarted by passengers much
like the shoe bomber and taken into custody. Then the low grade homemade IED became a highly sophisticated technologically advanced device acquired in
Yemen. This same device again changed into underwear with PETN sewn into it. The most amazing thing about all this is how the mans underwear is hardly
singed. Anyone who has seen the photos will know what I mean. Umar was able to fly to the USA with a one way ticket and no luggage and no passport.
He was allowed on board as a Sudanese refugee. Now the story reads that Umar did have a passport. Not only that but Mr. al-Awlaki is here again. The
busy guy also blessed blessed Umars' bomb plot.
Anwar al-Awlaki is currently believed to be dead from a retaliation air strike in Yemen but his death can not be confirmed. It looks as though he is
being set up as the next Bin Laden, who we still can not seem to find. At least we got those WMDs in Iraq and snuffed out that terrorist supporting
This is way past confusion. It is an alteration of what really happened into what the media wants you to believe
. And it doesn't end with
terrorist related stories but extends to stories about our current economy and jobless rates. How much of our news is manipulated and slanted to
present a molded story of propaganda rather than an honest account of the events of the day? Do we still trust the mainstream media to give us honest
news? And if not, is their anything we can do about it?
