There are so many examples of blatant media manipulation that I could go on listing them for ever but a few examples are the fake first Gulf war broadcast CNN made,

I came across this article from "The Vigilant Citizen" website and thought I should share. Many of us are aware of the lies of the media but to have the media themselves ridicule those who question their lies is rather pathetic if you ask me, and to top it off it's CNN making this claim.
Here is a portion from the CNN article:
Still 'paranoid' after all these years
“Yesterday’s paranoid types feared elite groups such as the Illuminati and the Masons. Today’s bogeymen include the members of the Rockefeller-founded Trilateral Commission and the politicians and financiers who attend the monied confab at Bohemian Grove and are suspected of mapping out the “new world order.”
The VC article points out that Ted Turner who is the owner of CNN is part of some of these organizations such as the CFR and is a Bilderberg group which he has visited in the past.
Have the followers of alternative news finally made media corporations such as CNN so desperate that they need to demonize those who question the lies they peddle on a daily basis?
I have seen an increase in mainstream sources poking fun at those "crazy conspiracy theorists" and in my opinion it shows how desperate they are to influence public opinion away from the truth and back to their lies but the line has been crossed. There are so many examples of blatant media manipulation that I could go on listing them for ever but a few examples are the fake first Gulf war broadcast CNN made, and then the BBC claiming WTC 7 collapsed while it was clearly still visible in the skyline on live camera.
How dare we question these people and their lies
I doubt that any of the information I shared is new to most members but I wanted to point out the tactics that CNN have resorted to.
"Conspiracy theory" is usually used as a pejorative label, meaning paranoid, nutty, marginal, and certainly untrue. The power of this pejorative is that it discounts a theory by attacking the motivations and mental competence of those who advocate the theory. By labeling an explanation of events "conspiracy theory," evidence and argument are dismissed because they come from a mentally or morally deficient personality, not because they have been shown to be incorrect. Calling an explanation of events "conspiracy theory" means, in effect, "We don't like you, and no one should listen to your explanation."
