I want to scream, "What's going on???!!!"

I don't know how MSM works, but don't you consider the mysterious explosion at Iran's Fordow nuclear facility to be a huge HUGE news item?

I've checked, Foxnews, and Reuters. Not only is this explosion NOT a headline, where I think it should be, it's not anywhere on these sites! Well, I can't find it.

Why wouldn't reporters jump on this news item? Why would U.S. news stations deliberately omit it?

Is this a clear cut case of government control of U.S. news stations?

I really don't know and I need you smart people to enlighten me. What is going on????

I cannot see how they wouldn't of reported it by now. Anything that happens in that part of the world is splashed all over the media. I have checked the Iranian media outlets and nothing their either.

Axis of evil is a term initially used by the former United States President George W. Bush in his State of the Union Address on January 29, 2002, and often repeated throughout his presidency, describing governments that he accused of helping terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction. Iran, Iraq and North Korea were portrayed by George W. Bush during the State of the Union as possessing nuclear weapons. The Axis of Evil was used to pinpoint these common enemies of the United States and ally the country in support of the war on terror.

Lets not upset the apple cart here mate, remember, its a war that is fighting for your mind.

Just go back to CNN, shopping and the X-Box, nothing to see here............

I trust your research but I had to check for myself

The lone story I found was on The Drudge Report.

And guess was a link to an ATS thread...ATS Thread

Main Stream Media needs to receive the "green light" on what eventually get written or reported from their higher-ups.

That highest level is ultimately the government who ultimately decides for their higher-ups.

If you know someone who works for Main Stream Media, he/she will confirm that. As long as they are not a shill in which case they will not confirm that of-course.

Look to alternative news to be truly informed. Leave the MSM for the masses of non-thinkers who have yet to awaken.

Maybe the initial report is false, and an explosion hasn't actually occurred. It's a possibility, right?

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

We in the U.S. need to amend the first amendment. As it stands now, this amendment prohibits the making of any law that infringes on the freedom of the press. Somehow this must change to stipulate that news stations MUST report on important issues. If an attack on, or even just an explosion within an Iranian nuclear facility isn't an important issue in today's world, I don't know what is.

If it is a hoax, then somebody needs to go to prison for it! A hoax like this could start a war and get people killed. If the fringe news agencies have it right, the Iranian government is already blaming the U.S. for this explosion.

Either it's a hoax and I'm p'd off about it, or the U.S. MSM isn't reporting it and I'm p'd off about it.

reply to post by jiggerj is a U.S. news site, but is it a reputable one? WND is claiming this:

other sources previously have provided WND with information on plans for covert operations against Iran’s nuclear facilities as an option before going to war. The hope is to avoid a larger-scale conflict. Israel, the U.S. and other allies already have concluded the Islamic regime has crossed its red line in its quest for nuclear weapons, other sources have said. Read more at

I hate the vague term of 'other sources', but the MSM should be all over this by now, either to validate this news or ease public hysteria by declaring this is a hoax.

Sabotage! Key Iranian nuclear facility hit?

Hey jiggerj, that was still on RSOE when I got on it earlier. No new info I'm afraid.

They had two earth quakes. One on 1/26/2013 and one on 12/23/2012.

1/26/2013 in the middle of no where. Not news worthy.

12/23/2012 close to Qom nuclear facility. Nobody knows what really happened. Propaganda now runs wild.
