Network: the last great film about The News

When a new epidemic is launched and promoted, despite the lack of good science and good evidence, it is jacked up on television screens. Images begin to flow:
An emergency medical vehicle on a street. EMT personnel, in hazmat suits, load a man strapped down to a stretcher, into the van. On another street, a man collapses on the sidewalk. We see a quarantined man sitting inside a huge plastic bubble on a third street. Cut to an airport lobby. Soldiers are patrolling the space among the crowds. Cut to a lab. Close-up of vials of liquid. Camera pulls back. Techs in light green scrubs are placing the vials into slots of a table-top machine. Auditorium—a man on a platform, wearing a doctor’s white coat, is pointing a wand at a large screen, on which a chart is displayed, for the audience. Back to the street. People are wearing face masks.
These images wash over the television viewer. Meanwhile, the anchor is imparting his prepared meaning: “The government today issued a ban on all travel into and out of the city…hundreds of plane flights have been cancelled. Scientists are rushing to develop a vaccine…”
The television audience has an IMPRESSION of knowing something. They’re in the flow, the flow of the news…they’re in the images…
—Network, the 1976 film written by Paddy Chayefsky, reveals what media kings would do if they unchained their basic instincts and galloped all the way into the madness of slash-and-burn Roman Circus.
The audience is jaded beyond recall. It needs new shocks to the system every day. The adrenaline must flow. The line between reporting the news and inventing it? Erase it. Celebrate the erasure. Watch ratings soar.
Why pretend anymore? Why spend countless hours preparing and broadcasting synthetic artificial news, as if it were real? Does the audience care about such niceties? The audience just wants action.
The film proceeds from these premises.
Arthur Jensen, head of the corporation that owns the Network, speaks to unhinged Network newsman, Howard Beale, who has revealed, on-air, a piece of the real planetary power structure in a few moments of sanity: “You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won’t have it!! Is that clear?!… You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today! And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and YOU WILL ATONE!”
Head of programming for the Network, Diana Christensen, shifts the whole news department over to the entertainment division.
Thus emerge new shows with soaring ratings: Howard Beale, [Religious] Prophet of the Air Waves; The Mao Tse-Tung Hour, in which a guerrilla group films itself carrying out armed bank robberies; and Sybil the Soothsayer, a Tarot reader.
Diana becomes the network’s new executive star.
There is no longer even a pretense of a need for news anchors to appear authoritative, objective, or rational.
Diana Christensen is unstoppable. She sees, with burning clarity, that audiences are bored to the point of exhaustion; they now require, as at the end of the Roman Empire, extreme entertainment. They want more violence, more insanity, out in the open. On television.
In promoting her kind of news division, she tells network executives:
“Look, we’ve got a bunch of
hobgoblin radicals called the
Ecumenical Liberation Army who
go around taking home movies
of themselves robbing banks.
Maybe they’ll take movies of
themselves kidnapping heiresses,
hijacking 747’s, bombing bridges,
We’d open each week’s segment
with that authentic footage,
hire a couple of writers to
write some story behind that
footage, and we’ve got
ourselves a series…
“Did you see the overnights on the
Network News? It has an 8 in New
York and a 9 in L.A. and a 27 share
in both cities. Last night, Howard
Beale went on the air [as a newscaster] and yelled
‘BULLSHIT’ for two minutes, and I
can tell you right now that tonight’s
show will get a 30 share at least.
I think we’ve lucked into something…
“I see Howard Beale as a latter-day
prophet, a magnificent messianic
figure, inveighing against the
hypocrisies of our times, a strip
Savonarola, Monday through Friday.
I tell you, Frank, that could just
go through the roof…Do you want to figure out
the revenues of a strip show that
sells for a hundred thousand bucks
a minute? One show like that could
pull this whole network right out
of the hole! Now, Frank, it’s being
handed to us on a plate; let’s not
Television in the “real world” isn’t all the way there yet, but it’s close.
In Network, Diana Christensen personifies the news. She is the electric, thrill-seeking, non-stop force that is terrified of silence.
She lives and feeds on adrenaline. So does the viewing public. Nothing else ultimately matters. Ratings are the top line and the bottom line. The individual and his thoughts are completely irrelevant.
Howard Beale, over the cliff, a news man screaming on-air about the insanity of the news, is perfectly acceptable, because the audience is simply responding to Beale’s inchoate outrage and their own. Nothing deeper is explored. What could have resulted in a true popular rebellion is short-circuited. Beale becomes a crazy loon, a novelty item. Yet one more distraction.
When, in a brief interlude of clarity, he begins telling his audience about the takeover of society by mega-corporations and mega-money, his show droops. Ratings collapse. Diana is no longer interested in him; she wants to sack him.
However, Arthur Jensen, the head of the corporation that owns the television network, wants to keep Beale on the air, as a messenger of the “galactic truth” about the beneficial integration of all human activity under the rubric of global money and global power. He converts Beale to his cause.
Diana sees only one way out of this ratings disaster: kill Beale; on-air; during his show. And so it is done.
Network also shows us the audience becoming actor, player, participant. The audience is jumping out of its skin to be recognized, courted, and adored as a mighty rolling force embodying no particular meaning.
Audience wants to be a star. Audience wants to BE news; audience wants its actions to be shown on television. That establishes its legitimacy. Nothing else is necessary.
Diana knows it, and she is more than willing to accommodate this frantic desire, if only her bosses will let her go all the way.
The best film ever made about television’s war on the population, Network stages only a few minutes of on-air television.
The rest of the film is dialogue and monologue about television. Thus you could say that, in this case, word defeats image. Which was scriptwriter Paddy Chayefsky’s intent.
Even when showing what happens on the TV screen, Network bursts forth with lines like these, from newsman Howard Beale, at the end of his rope, on-camera, speaking to his in-studio audience and millions of people in their homes:
“So, you listen to me. Listen to me! Television is not the truth. Television’s a god-damned amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business… We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness. You maniacs. In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion.”
It is Beale’s language and the passion with which he delivers it that constitutes his dangerous weapon. Therefore, the Network transforms him into a cheap religious figure, whose audience slathers him with absurd adoration.
Television’s enemy is the word. Its currency is image.
Beale occasionally breaks through the image and defiles it. He cracks the egg. He stops the picture-flow. He brings back the sound and rhythm of spoken poetry. That is his true transgression against the medium that employs him.
The modern matrix has everything to do with how knowledge is acquired.
Television, in the main, does not attempt to impart knowledge. It strives to give the viewer the impression that he knows something. There is a difference.
The impression of knowing is a feeling, a conviction, a belief the viewer holds, after he has watched moving images on a screen and listened to a narrator. THIS is what the viewer prefers. He wants no part of knowledge.
A basic premise of modern age is: “everything is (connected to) everything.” This fits quite well with the experience of watching video flow.
Example: we see angry crowds on the street of a foreign city. Then young people on their cell phones sitting in an outdoor café. Then the marble lobby of a government building where men in suits are walking, standing in groups talking to each other. Then at night, rockets exploding in the sky. Then armored vehicles moving through a gate into the city. Then clouds of smoke on another street and people running, chased by police.
A flow of consecutive images. The sequence, obviously, has been assembled by a news editor, but most of the viewing audience isn’t aware of that. They’re watching the “interconnected” images and listening to a news anchor tell a story that colors (infects) every image: “This is revolution for democracy, created by the technology of cell phones…”
Viewers thus believe something. Television has imparted a sensation to them.
Therefore: a short circuit occurs in the mind.
When you export this pattern out to a whole society, you are talking about a dominant method through which “knowledge” is groped and held close.
“Did you see that fantastic video about the Iraq War? It showed that Saddam actually had bioweapons.”
“Really? How did they show that?”
“Well, I don’t remember. But watch it. You’ll see.”
And that’s another feature of the modern acquisition of “knowledge”: amnesia about details.
The viewer can’t recall key features of what he saw. Or if he can, he can’t describe them, because he was inside them, busy building up his impression of knowing something.
Narrative-visual-television story strips out and discards conceptual analysis. To the extent it exists, it’s wrapped around and inside the image and the narration.
Paddy Chayefsky made his pen a sword, because he was writing a movie about television, against television. He was pitting Word against Image.
When a technology (television) turns into a method of perception, reality is turned inside out. People watch TV through TV eyes.
Mind control is no longer something merely imposed from the outside. It is a matrix of a self-feeding, self-demanding loop.
Willing Devotees of the Image WANT images, food stamps of the programmed society.
The triumph of Network is that it makes its words win over pictures, IN a picture, IN a film.
A pandemic, the false pandemic I’ve been rejecting in many articles, is delivered through video flow and narration. Stacked and cut images.
There is no challenge to the flow in any basic way, through the intrusion of actual knowledge, because that would shut down the parade of images and nullify the reasons for broadcasting them in the first place.
The old theater adage, “the show must go on,” when adapted for television, becomes, “the flow must go on.” Once its course is set, there can be no turning back.
The television audience, imprisoned in homes, rides the river…

The Network movie seems masterful on multiple levels. But I didnt realize that the writers intention was to write a movie about television, against television, (yes that part I got) and pitting Word against Image. Im going to enjoy watching it again tonight in this contexts.
I believe watching tv news is the main source of why the fake pandemic has such a strong hold.
I know people that name their children from tv show characters purposely.
Currently reading Four Arguments For The Elimination Of Television.
I recently bought a cool shirt from awakening with JP, That reads, Amish Virus Protection, Turn Off The TV. I wore it for the first time this weekend to granddaughters ballgame and many people saw it but not one person verbally responded.
Great article to read and learn.
I just ordered one of those tee shirts. Pulled the plug on my T.V. 20 years ago. My only regret….just wish I would have done it sooner. ????
Far out man Stef, they are pretty decent!
I watched it again just now.
I am not the one. No ones trying to find me and I know no oracle with my message.
I did however wear my new tee shirt out again today. A lady caught my attention and said she Loves my shirt.
We talked about the things we noticed. Many commonalities. One of the things I brought up was the Canada Glory Church I seen an interview of the Preacher that was just released from a month in jail for keeping his church filled for 37 weeks into this fake pandemic, with no one testing positive ect. Now thats what Im talkin bout. This Preacher will rock.
She made a statement like I would die for Jesus in spite of all the fake pandemic, something along those lines. Admirable and I get it. I responded, trying to be careful not to say the wrong words so I couldn’t spit it out good. But I said sure that is a message. And I also think another possible powerful message could be along the lines of noticing the values of placing God before government vs government before God . Told her that even though I am not Christian, I could see that maybe more awareness of a message like that could be a good one too.
She doesnt watch tv. I dont watch tv. We noticed how long this thing is drawn out. She took down the awaken with JP from my tee shirt.
So I guess we are all subject to all of the people that watch tv, even though we know what’s up and the perpetrators knows what’s up.
A tee that reads, Amish Virus Protection. Turn Off The TV. from, Awaken with JP .com The comedian.
Ah yes, Network. The Hollywood movie about how Arabs own the media.
Maybe get a chair and put on your highest heels and maybe that will get you up enough to see over the fence.
Who made the movie?
Great article. One of your best yet. Please keep them coming. Pino
Your metaphors are good. Do you realise that we are looking for a solution which millions of us do not know how to happen!
The frustration and for me, fear of totalitarianism which the public do not realise because of the weak medical establishment risinG up,as one, and seeing our lives being destroyed and our Countries.
Watch https://www.youtube.com/user/N24de and you know what real madness in the mainstream media is.
“Reality TV” may be one of the top ten Orwellian phrases. Here’s another scene from “Network” – which, BTW, is nearly a half-century old:
“You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split seconds and instant replays. You’re madness!”
Things are orders of magnitude worse now: people carry TV with them everywhere now, and never look away from it.
The biggest hit show ever on TV, which some of you may be too young to recall, was on for forty-two hours every week, in six-hour daily increments, on every station, and was all any viewers would watch:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYWTlVD4vDs That was on from midnight to 6AM, seven days a week.
What about Wag the Dog? Not exactly the news, but faking reality (war in this case).
But honestly, the disinfo started spreading with the advent of the affordable newspapers in XVIII/XIX century. As Leo Tolstoy said, it’s incredibly easy to create mass illusions when the press and the public feed each other.
It’s even easier with the Internet and social media, of course.
~~ Good point Natalie.
Neil Postman in “The Disappearance of Childhood” makes the case for laying the fault for societal demise back at the invention of the printing press, which altered the millenia old tradition of oral history. He traces the changes along the ever changing path to the bobbing headed presstitutes we have today, who cant even get it right, reading their teleprompters….
The television news is like grade school “show and tell.” They show you a picture and tell you a story.
But what have you really seen?
WHAT AN INTERPRETATION JON! Thank you.

Dear fellow followers of Jon R. God Bless you, one and all. Yes, even those of you who are paid ‘creepy’ state tools/fools. May Heaven help especially you to learn. Creepy state – he’she’it has become so desparate this past go-around they had to install an absolutely brain damaged tool along with a bizzarre-oh! whorled broad. (Post brain=damaged potato-head guy that lost one child, and first wife. Poor fella, so sad that they wouldn’t just let him – or tell him – ‘Go home and do your best to bring up your not-so-beau boy so that he might become a moral and decent man.’ However, neither morality nor decency appear on the ingredients list of that stew. Oh well… .) We can see that ‘they’ are marooned like a life boat relentlessy crashing against a rocky shore in an horrific Hurricane. That life boat is dis-integrating; many, many thanks to the law of unintended consequences. Several are already dead. JEpstein – may the Great One Divinity eventually succeed in recovering that soul. Many others are either imprisoned/jailed, under indictment, utterly disgraced, or otherwise curtailed. Aside from JE., there are at least seven others who operated at his level (with many, many more to follow,) currently facing the consequences, or in one other case – already dead. Does anyone here truly know how to pronounce ghislane? Perhaps those gruesome ones among them will eventually learn that the vast majority of humans are decent and moral. Moreover ‘they’ are massively out-numbered. Soon the sleepy masses awaken: Turn Off your Televisions, if possible get out of cities! “The Goths are here again; soon enough Rome and vassal-states are likely to become dispatched.”
Talk about breaking the fourth wall.
I am both drawn to the visionary Chayefsky, and to my home town Canadian, Marshall McLuhan who spoke about the actual medium itself being the goddam message.
A sort of one-two punch — and that message within the medium?
Network, strangely is politically and historically significant to the point of the need to preserve it. To make sure it is around in the future – at least until the National Film Preservation Act of congress ceases to exist. The 2016 Re-authorization Act of 2016 gives it life till 2026.
And then what?
With the internet being burned down every 100 days its amazing anything can last longer than that third of a years 100.
But this is one of those films that was deserving of preservation by the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF). That’s Congress at work! An Act of congress at work!
Why you may ask would they wish to preserve it; why would it retain such a freshness rate of some 98% on rotten tomatoes after some 45 years.
Because its truth! It’s a mirror being held to our face.
Network shares that NFPF protection with films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, 12 Angry Men, Alien, All the President’s Men, Citizen Kane, Easy Rider, and of all things the Zapruder film.
Why, because many of these films – if not all – broke that fourth wall and spoke directly to the audience about its content, the context was about the seriousness of the visual image in this instance. The power of that reality being created for an alternate reason.
Because of the cultural significance, because if it all blows up tomorrow, the future will ask, why? And pictures like Network will give those truthful answers to why.
The visual image even speaks volumes to the illiterate, or light readers, I’m not sure the stupid can be helped at all.
Network is not 1984, its better than 1984, because it predicted precisely the world in which ‘we’ are living in today, with the talking heads on every channel of the Internet, trying so desperately to keep that corporate world intact.
I am starting to believe — in moments like this, in spite of the hoopla about Gill Bates and the NWO and the WEF reset — that no one is in control, that it is a free fall, chaos is loosed and it has been predicted, rightly I would say, that when the singularity arrives; everything will be happening all at the same time. Until then we are exponentially escalating in occurrences and shitstormery to that point in time.
The whole of our reality has been purposely changed into the world of a Network sound stage, we have the BLM and Antifa shit disturbers performing the tasks of Ecumenical Liberation Army, but on acid, and BLM is looking to a television program in its grass roots effort to build an even greater audience from the very young — a superlative of Network’s ‘Mao Tse-Tung hour’ being staged by masked Antifa as they batter protestors and videotaping the results and the actual crimes of these ‘organizations’. The police will stand aside and watch, but meanwhile across town a woman gets tasered at ball game for not wearing her mask.
I found an absurd quote by Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report who said: “Howard Beale is a precursor of people who are telling you how you feel. Not just the nighttime people that I’m sort of a parody of, not just the opinion-making people, but even what is left of straight news.”
Hah…that’s all Colbert, in his “Late Show” does for a living is tell people how to feel. A fake, faking the fake. The hypocrisy is beyond belief.
In notes to himself, that he had written on the play in its making of it — the writes and constant rewrites, Chayefsky had said, “[audiences] don’t want jolly, happy family type shows like Eye Witness News”, he said the, “the American people are angry and want angry shows.” *my emphasis*
That was early seventies. What is it now? Have we been angry all our lives? Shows like this telling us how to feel.
We are living Network, we are all bit players in the constant never ending programming now, connected intricately by these little fondle slabs that beams us to the news in real time, so we can rush over and preform our bit parts, as videographers and as influencers, influencing in this fake never-ending movie about fucking reality.
I absolutely love everything you just said, to the point where it would be physically impossible not to express that in some way. Thank you for writing that comment.
Vanishing point; a great film from 1971.

Nothing can stop the sheep from slavery.
I don’t know which comes first here – whether the movie industry gives us “hints” or whether they instigate. Maybe a little of both.
I have noticed that (some) movies are ahead of the curve. New technology – that’s now commonplace – being just one case. But sometimes I see social issues like described in this article that act like a crystal ball, enabling us to see into the future.
There are many more such examples. Many have escaped my notice until the future of them becomes today and then I REMEMBER…
Question: What 2010 movie included “air rights” in its plot! When I was watching the film I turned to my boyfriend and said, “Just wait. Air rights will come to be someday very soon.”
Still waiting, but I bet anything we’ll be hearing about it in the future.
Oh, one more thing. I know that “air rights” is real today but my guess is it will become CONTENTIOUS one day.
“Television, in the main, does not attempt to impart knowledge. It strives to give the viewer the impression that he knows something. There is a difference.”
One might also substitute some other words in place of ‘Television’ in the statement above. Insert words like…

You screwed up the timeline…Arthur Jensen’s speech to Beale comes AFTER Beale has been on the air screaming to get “mad as hell, and not take it anymore !”. He’s successful about getting people off their asses at home and swamping the whitehouse with telegrams to stop a media merger from happening. THAT’S WHEN BEALE is summoned to Jensen’s office and read the riot act. Beale caves in, and from that moment on, he begins preaching Jensen’s message that RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. And that’s when the ratings to Beale’s show start to CRATER.
SOUND FAMILIAR ? Not that Trump is any savior, BUT the OLIGARCHY which owns this government, the MSM, search engines, etc., pulled out ALL the stops to CRUSH him. NO ONE must be allowed to wage a war of words against them and challenge their mechanisms for creating and controlling perceived reality. They know a war of words could develop into a REVOLUTION, and something could happen beyond their control.
NOW THAT would be truly entertaining…provided you can turn it off whenever you like.
Add to television: sirens wailing day and night, ordered to do so. Grim officials, with doom statements, threats and enforcements. Halted activities – recreation, sports, businesses. Where are those legal actions against masks, curfews and lockdowns? People die, some of fear, some of neglect, some of any illness…
Another great article Jon, thank-you. Network predicted the world we are living in today, as Aldous Huxley did. The powers-that-be, influenced by the Nazis, are exploiting human weaknesses to the hilt.
In Huxley’s 1962 U.C. Berkeley Speech on “The Ultimate Revolution” he spoke about “the final revolution, where man can act directly on the mind-body of his fellows.” He said that about 20% are easily hypnotized, 20% can not be and “…in between lies a large mass of people who can with more or less difficulty be hypnotized…” Thank goodness there are at least 20% who’ll not succumb. Refer: https://publicintelligence.net/aldous-huxley-1962-u-c-berkeley-speech-on-the-ultimate-revolution/
For those who wanted ‘Network’ to be taken further, Beyond the Veil show host and musician, Chris Geo paired Howard Beale’s “TV is an illusion” dialogue with information about the New World Order. It works well:
That was a good Huxley speech and the other youtube you posted too.
I want to go back to Jon’s discussion about the overall death rate in 2020 back in November of that year when Genevieve Briand’s report came out and was then immediately suppressed by the university (her employer). At that time the overall death rate was compared to the preceding years:
2020: as of 11/14 total deaths= 2,512,880
How then by the end of the year did the numbers change so dramatically? According to the CDC (and quoted by numerous so-called “fact-checkers”), preliminary US death statistics showed over 3.1 million total deaths in 2020—at least 12% more deaths than in 2019.
It’s clear that the numbers were comparatively the same according to the comparative chart listed above (up until November 2020).
Could it be as a DIRECT result of the Briand report, that numbers were fraudulently added by the CDC to make it appear that the OVERALL death rate far exceeded the preceding year?
Why would the overall numbers of deaths suddenly climb in the last month in contrast to the steady numbers reported not only in prior years but during all the months of 2020 up until November?
Wasn’t COVID allegedly “raging” up until and through November 2020? Still there were only 2.5 million overall deaths reported at that time and the overall 2020 numbers were pretty much on par with the numbers in the preceding years.
Something is rotten in the State of Denmark!
He waxes desperate with imagination.
Let’s follow. ‘Tis not fit thus to obey him.
Have after. To what issue will this come?
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Heaven will direct it.”
That’s a deep rabbit hole, but don’t let me interrupt your digging.
But I suspect you are absolutely right about it being a Briand affair, that and the great and many numbers of people that followed that tidbit of information to her source as it moved to the forefront.
These bastards are so fucking tidy.
Biased algorithms at work, rewriting their own code. It takes them a while sometimes to gain enough. I am beginning to understand how it all works.
It starts with biased human coders writing and rewriting code all the time, on the average it takes them about a hundred days to burn down the internet and replace it.
Thank god for the Archivers.
History constantly being rewritten. Coders hired by institutions to protect what they consider institutional integrity.
They operate on this problem/reaction/solution equation. It is in their education, ya see! They are like viruses themselves. When there is enough noise — I notice — then the thing is addressed.
And then…dundun dun, lies must completely backed up…right? So reverse engineering the lie, one finds that they go back into all the areas of information that was pertinently used to make up the lie and tweak those results until it becomes a tangible.
But if one pays attention to the peripherals, that is where the fly is found in the ointment. There is always a glitch in the Matrix.
Watch what happens to facts as they progress into the future. Once something like that happens then the machine goes back changing the whole history. That how they have built it.
And that is what I mean by the Internet being burned down at a rate of every one hundred days. It probably will start to speed up, as time moves on…
By the time we arrive into the year 2030, the fact will be unrefutably that a pandemic existed and killed millions of people…unless?
This was learning process in the fake global warming agenda, they (masters of the universe) went back into a century of data, and tweaked and pulled and lengthened and shortened myriads of categories of information to gain the result. They even deleted vast data bases of climate information at the University of Toronto to gain the edge.
Then in the end they maintained that the data had to be looked at in a certain way to come to their understanding of what was happening in this great hoax called man made global warming…hah. Amazing to what lengths they will go to, to gain a tax.
This is the same operation. That is why it is so important that when you gain a fact, ‘Archive it’ and protect it.
It took them a while but finally the library of Corbett has been burned down – do you know of his work? And if we lose such vital sources of information?
Hah…Do I sound paranoid?
This Internet is not built as a great library of learning and an information center for individual advancement, that was never the intention, it is our misunderstanding of what it really is, that is the problem, it is a prison that is being built for the mind, by us, placing all our data into the game. That, eventually will be melded with the machine, the human mind and control of it, ‘is’ the whole point.
Speaking of staging the (w)right false flag was clearly a production made to divide and conquer ( & for Biden to incite violent protests and more racism). The (W)right False flag is a hybrid production as both racism and the sexism was featured together .

Television today has passed Network’s stunning and artful expose to a very large degree. What’s going on in the world is ABSOLUTE MADNESS right now.
The takeover isn’t “waiting to happen”. It is complete!!! The fact that your readers still believe there is a fighting chance is because they are waiting for SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE FIGHTING FOR THEM.
When I see the children of this world PULLED OUT OF OUR FORCED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS EN MASSE, then I will say that humanity is starting to wake up. Until then, TV will win the day, because that’s what we’ve been ultimately teaching them for my entire lifetime.
A much more accurate depiction of what’s happening to the human soul, told in an incredibly artful way, is the series called AMERICAN GODS, on the Starz channel.
I know…more TV…but TV doesn’t have to be weaponized. We’ve just become to docile and asleep to recognize the difference.
The central bankers and company control the media, worldwide.
People need to realize this obvious truth.
There is something very sinister about the media today, it’s been this way for ages, but this covid shenanigans has hammered this home: the media is literally hypnotizing people, I am not even joking; thus, the so-called mainstream media should be avoided like the plague.
You’re right. I definitely get the “something very sinister” part.
Apart from a couple of mornng sports shows, I don’t watch the news but my roommate will tune into the Cuomo Report. Every now and then I venture downstairs, mainly to wait until 7pm (which is when a lot of Warriors’ games are aired) but I cannot stomach what I see and hear for more than a minute, so I go back upstairs to wait. When you’re not subjected to it everyday, it’s so easy to see the manipulation. I know FOX News is notorious for doing this, but it seems to be everywhere now.
I notice my roommate will become more agitated after watching some of the blather, so I guess their modus operandi is doing the trick, eh?
Tucker Carlson on Fox News and some of the shows on Newsmax are the only decent ones, in my opinion… though I don’t believe everything they say. They’re just far better than CNN, MSLSD, etc.
My observation – if you have to spell the name of the network, it’s fake news.
There is a good reason it’s called programming.
Actually, I have realized that the people who believed the least in the covid scam and all the BS aorund it (face diapering, lockdown, vax, testing, etc..) were the people who watch the least the TV, or not at all.
The Tv isn’t called the ‘idiot box’ for nothing. There was this song in the 90’s ‘television the drug of a nation, breading ignorance and feeding radiation 9or soemthing like that).
This is true. But with the covid staged ‘pandemic’ it has reached a new height.
I think that subliminal messages both in images and sounds are broadcasted on Tv on all channels at all times. This is probably not the only technique they use but I think they do (like fear messages).
Another issue are so-called ‘social media’. Some stduies suggest that Americans take 60/70% of their news from ‘social media’. Is this true/ i don’t know but ‘social media’ is just another type of TV, but on steroids. It is the most censored, controlled and suppressed media, more than TV because TV has now some choices, you can choose to just watch series or films…
‘social media’ is hyper controlled, including the so-called ‘free speech’ ones, parler, gab or others.
This is where they control the youth, addiction to smartphones, digitla gadgetry and ‘social media’…
My genuine and humble advice: dish the TV (hey), and remove all your ‘social media’ accounts. If it’s free anyway, you are the product.
Use multiple sources of inforamtion, various websites, worldwide, and that is the only way to stay away from manipulation.
I agree. I feel having anything on 24/7 – even if you’re just listening – will seep into your psyche. (One of the reasons I like listening to the sounds of the birds outside…and the occasional leaf blower instead. The sounds of Nature…well, except for the leafblower…)
I have a website but don’t “do” social media. Never have wanted to. It’s an unproductive distraction. With that being said, there are sites on the internet (like this one) where you can find INFORMATION when you want it. Or don’t. Easy peasy.
Glad I’m not a TV/social media junkie because there are some days I don’t want to deal with anything except gardening, reading, and going on my Power Walks.
The Revolution will not be televised
It’s all fake news including George Floyd
Well, Mr. Floyd IS dead. I get the feeling that was not faked. BUT the brouhaha surrounding the trial IS theater. Not surprising.
Has anyone seen anything on the TV news channels about what’s going on in the rest of the world (Ulster, for example)? If so, I’d be surprised.
No…best to stick to theater.
“Has anyone seen anything on the TV news channels about what’s going on in the rest of the world?”
Yeah, here’s an interesting little story…something about Russia’s Putin preparing a Doomsday Weapon after a recent phone chat with President Biden.
He’s dead… But it was a false flag and that “cop” didn’t kill him, the fentanyl injection they gave him did.
90% of American “news” and “reality” is staged, created by the establishment. George floyd hoax was massively debunked, the “cop” and George worked together at the same club for many years… Paid actors, the neighbors of the “cop” didn’t even know he was a cop, they thought he was a realtor.
Floyd was a patsy, one of many crisis actors hired on a regular, except his cia handlers didn’t tell him they were going to whack him at the end… He thought he was going to get “arrested” on video for police brutality, collect his check and go home.
The eugenics who wear the green mantle are destabilizing the US, and shortly you’ll have clowns like Ron Paul on the “right” and retards on the “left” pushing for secession… Everything the zionists are doing is to create secession in the US, which will massively help the creation of the one world government.
When ever going forward someone spews secession, just know they are working for the establishment who want to depopulate and enslave humanity
They who want control on us try to constantly re-shift focus, that way people are off balance, so then mistakenly look to what appears solid for easy answer, though what appears solid is not, and any answer or directions false. But, none of this would be if people stopped looking at and listening to the plastic boxes, and listened to and learned from each other. So simple, most basic of life, need to steer our own focus, imo. The dictating changing clocks/time for no reason, one of most obvious tactics. And agree with point in article between tevee and written paper, tend to read a little before going to sleep, works, reading some nature type stuff. Keepng using own focus for what future could be, instead of others agendas.
Well said, Eceres. ‘They’ desire to suck/sap our energy, and (mis)direct us away from our ‘individual’ lives; to get sucked into and wrapped up in ‘Their’ version of reality, and ‘Their’ vision of what ‘They’ think our individual and collective lives should look like; to get caught up and wrapped up in ‘Their’ script…Their agenda. However, all things work for good for those who are truly called, even though it may not look like it as we pass through our trials and tribulations…our tests. So long as we heed the signs given us (since it’s all hidden in plain sight), we’ll get through and find ourselves having had our characters built on a sure foundation. There is far more to be said, but I’d like to thank from the bottom of my heart Jon Rappoport and all the contributors to this website. You are all most, most helpful. Thank you one and all.
~ just saw your post Andy, well said also, each part true and worth keep.
~ and share same gratitude, Jon’s effort, and all who resonate and share, and includes you
One of my favorite films from the 1970s is The Hospital, very biting satire about the “health care” industry. Best cure for covid is to turn off the tv. To borrow from film Network, I am as mad as hell and I wont take covid madness any more!
I have seen Network several times. Loved it! I have recently seen Allan Bates in “King of Hearts” which I highly recommend and also “The Hospital” by Paddy Chayefsky.
I also love JR’s pamflets!
