Back in 1977 the Church Committee broke open, for a brief moment in time, the reality of the relationship between the CIA, other clandestine government operatives and the entire media architecture. With the usual complacency of the growing lobotomized now-nowism of American consumerist culture, the incomplete transparency into reality was brief and inconsequential. Interrupted for just a few years, the CIA/Media conglomerate came back with a vengeance under Ronald Reagan and has only become stronger and more insidious since.
I like to remind readers of the the CIA/NATO right-wing Neo-Nazi terrorist organization that only, again very briefly, came to light due to the prosecution of the Italian Prime Minister Andreotti in 1990 and with the first Gulf War was not very mysteriously suppressed in Europe, where bloody crimes against our own allies were all committed. What is telling is that, though the European press was in an outrage about Gladio, there was only one mention in an American newspaper about the scandal. A covert operation of until then over 40 years of coordinated conspiracy to undermine the democratic processes of NATO member states, if they were heading in a direction the CIA was not pleased with. There was virtually no mention of Gladio on American Television and the one press report was never, ever allowed to recur. Gladio is still, I have no doubts, operational with evidence of its activities in the Ukraine, among other nations and the media is still directed, controlled and manipulated by the CIA and other organs of the subversive State.
Members of the German media are paid by the CIA in return for spinning the news in a way that support US interests, and some German outlets are nothing more than PR appendages of NATO, according to a new book by Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany’s largest newspapers.
Ulfkotte is a serious mainstream journalist. Here he is on Germany’s leading political talk show a couple of years ago. The book is a sensation in Germany, #7 on the bestseller list. Its political dynamite, coming on the heels of German outrage of NSA tapping of their phones. Check out the RT.com story on it in the video below.
Here at Russia Insider, it has long been apparent to us that there is something distinctly odd about the German media regarding Russia. We follow it, and it is much more strident than even the anglo-saxon media regarding Russia, while German public opinion is much more positive towards Russia than in other countries.
Another interesting thing about it is that it is very disparate. Some major voices are very reasonable about Russia, but most are negative, and some are comically apocalyptic. This is what one would expect if there was some financial influence ginning the system.
