Husband of powerful intelligence committee congresswoman is 'favorite' to buy Newsweek


rawstory.com

The husband of Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), one of the most powerful Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, is the "galloping favorite" to buy Newsweek from The Washington Post.

The purchase would mark an odd synergy between a congresswoman with access to the most clandestine intelligence available, and an agenda-setting newsmagazine.

According to Politico's "Morning Score," a newsletter which cites no specific sources, Sidney Harman is favored to win control of Newsweek. The Washingto

Remember Jane Harman, the Congresswoman who was caught secretly working with AIPAC to intervene on behalf of one of their spies that the Justice Dept was looking into, in exchange for making her the Chair of the Intelligence Committee? Yeah, the incident that also involved Pelosi.

That was the little incident that blew the covers on how certain elites use intelligence gathering to include wire-tapping in an effort to blackmail certain politicians.

Anyway, her husband is now supposedly buying Newsweek and this can't be anything good. If you thought that the media outlet was pumping out propaganda now, just wait until he gains control over it. It will become just another wing of AIPAC and in their complete control.

Update: Harman has purchased Newsweek,

according to Paid Content's David Kaplan. The magazine was sold for $1 and an agreement to transfer its financial liabilities, which Kaplan noted to be an estimated $70 million.


It now looks like a done deal. Newsweek is the official media arm of AIPAC.

The nearly hermetically sealed media industry is no longer to be expected to be devoid of government influence..., even foreign governments.

The nature of the 'club' is that no action is taken without support from those who's job it is to 'protect' the public interest. Although, it would appear that the only consideration from a public perspective that matters to the 'players' is that of consumership.

I would suspect that we are inevitably headed towards a model where the government will subsidize any and every newspaper that surrenders to their purposes. Legislation to 'protect' the industry is likely 'inbound'.

I could certainly see that, especially with Cass Sunstein in the mix and his apparent contempt for the free flow of information. Not even Sunstein himself, but the very fact that he is floating around up top is indicative of things to come, IMO.

In fact, we started to see that the "dangers" of the internet were threatening the establishment with their campaign to discredit "what we read off the internet".

It would seem that information control has replaced martial methods of subduing the population, which is kind of ironic seeing how this is the so-called information age... Or, is the equation really absent of irony after all?

Neither the presence nor absence of irony in this is lost on me!


I find the uncertainty amusing... until I begin to recall this is real life, and these 'people' are in no way 'playing' this game 'for fun.'
