The rise of television news, and its power over the mind, necessitated an agreement among the major networks:
On most issues, the networks would have to mirror each other’s coverage. Otherwise, the audience would experience an unacceptable level of confusion and cognitive dissonance.
This principle of agreement was basically about the rules of propaganda—and nowhere was it more evident than in matters of medical science.
For example, suppose, recently, the COVID PCR test became an occasion for disagreement among NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and FOX?
Three networks fell into line with the CDC and the WHO in claiming the test was accurate and meaningful, while the other two strenuously reported on the irreparable and fatal flaws in the test. (I’ve exhaustively detailed those flaws in many articles.)
The network dissonance would upset a huge apple cart smack in the middle of COVID “science.” The public wouldn’t know where to turn.
Therefore, the truth of the matter had to take a back seat to conformity. All the major networks robotically echoed the CDC/WHO.
And the network anchors had to sell the PCR lies. Lester Holt (Lurch/ the Addams family); David Muir (Sears underwear model); Norah O’Donnell (student council president); Wolf Blitzer (“smart bombs went right down chimneys in Iraq”); a collection of shiny suits at FOX; they all had to pretend they’d looked at more than the opening lines of public health press releases.
The guiding light of network news is unanimity, and social media have adopted that m.o. as well.
Truth is the first casualty of The News.
Long before television secured its hold on the public (1923-1928), Edward Bernays, the father of modern propaganda, wrote: “This is an age of mass production. In the mass production of materials a broad technique has been developed and applied to their distribution. In this age, too, there must be a technique for the mass distribution of ideas.”
“Domination to-day is not a product of armies or navies or wealth or policies. It is a domination based on the one hand upon accomplished unity, and on the other hand upon the fact that opposition is generally characterized by a high degree of disunity.”
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”
Today, vast numbers of people DO cooperate; they watch the news, which is a virtual construct.
The network editors, writers, on-air talent, and crews conspire and collaborate, every day, to fulfill Bernays’ prescriptions for society. And, for the most part, these plotters are true believers. They think they’re presenting fact.
This is what habit does to the mind.
The CIA has played its role in securing network unanimity of coverage. As soon as the Agency was created, in 1947, it set about researching mind control (MKULTRA). It planted agents in newsrooms. It followed the tenets of Bernays.
Human society had to be hypnotized. Otherwise, profound decentralization would occur.
Consider this simple fact about the PCR test—which any news reporter should be able to spot in a minute, but doesn’t: a person who tests positive is called “a case of COVID-19.”
That isn’t even done with HIV/AIDS. A person who tests positive is called “HIV positive.” If he develops symptoms, then he’s called “a case of AIDS.”
Imagine this conversation: “Hi, Phil, how’s your son?”
“He has the flu.”
Oh. Is he in bed?”
“No. He ran the marathon yesterday.”
“What? You said he has the flu.”
“He does. He tested positive for the virus.”
In 1913, political commentator Walter Lippmann wrote: “Ours is a problem in which deception has become organized and strong; where truth is poisoned at its source; one in which the skill of the shrewdest brains is devoted to misleading a bewildered people.”
If the CDC says the sky is falling, all the networks will report it—and will censor the fact that it isn’t falling.
“…in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” Adolph Hitler, 1925
The distortion of the truth applies to the past as well as to the present. As George Orwell puts it, in 1984:
“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had been actually destroyed. For how could you establish even the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside your own memory?…To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself…That was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.”
Why all this subterfuge? In order to produce mass uniformity of belief and consensus. You can be sure that, in the future, the history of COVID will be transmitted in a way that covers up all the lies and obfuscations. COVID will be invoked to prove contradictory propositions (both A and not-A), when it suits the propagandists.
Over the years, in speaking with mainstream reporters, I’ve gleaned that some of them are aware they’re on an Orwellian path. They squelch that perception. But they know they’re a) believing what they report is true and b) disbelieving what they report.
They understand they’re parrot-performers on a stage under the lights, and yet they accept their roles as absolutely authentic reflections of honesty.
They rationalize this contradiction in the same way that Edward Bernays did in 1928: “Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner [by accepting propaganda as fact] if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”
Have you ever seen a first-class hypnotist perform his act? The basic requirement—he must appear to know exactly what he’s doing. That skill is paramount.
And this is the standard toward which all television news anchors aspire.

YOU R A N G…?
I think I saw Uncle Fester on CNN. Where’s his lightbulb?
“Truth is the first casualty of The News.”
Ahh…so War & The News are fought on the same front.
SSSS (SILIENT SOUND SPREAD SPECTRUM) technology also targets the TV viewers brain with ULF and ELF frequencies. Subliminal programming?
Glad I pulled the plug on this vast wasteland called television.
Stef, Im studying to get my armature ham radio license right now, to be able to communicate legally on the waves in case of any emergencies on the horizon god forbid. And its a whole new world for me, all the frequencies and concepts and knowledge that is well known is quite humbling. But I haven’t heard of SSSS Silent Sound Spread Spectrum yet. Probably is meant that way. I have the last highest level left to get though which is about 30 hours of study and I will be looking out for SSSS. Radio frequencies ect are fascinating. I think concepts in it will help me understand more stuff. And I would put money on it that it exists big time and its subliminal programming. What is ULF and ELF?
hi Sean, few thoughts to mention, agendists sort of pushed alternative or prepper focus the last decade so people focused on that instead of stopping the agendists, one being ham radio etc, which, now stuff has gone to this point, saw a year or two ago so-called fcc, or some govt in calif and I think elsewhere were restricting them now. To me, agencies such as fcc it’s been a false system setup, to dictate only agendists media can use our air-waves, claiming ‘regulate’ etc, which isn’t right, because territory and air belongs to all of us. Anyway, not to set aside your interest just side note. Your post good to think on, question frenqencies etc. The web seems harder to search now, though still some things, and of course chat with others around us where we live, friends etc, share and learn, dig info that way, on ULF and ELF, and other things mentioned.
I think people over rely on cel fones, or expectations, myself always keep stuff written on paper, also addresses, and like direct communicating person to person rather than fones, is better privacy.
Interesting post, appreciated.
Hey Saeger, totally agree about the fcc. Its obvious from studying this test that they have total control of the airwaves, and they promote people to become listeners of broken rules and to snitch them off. So Im not excited one bit about any of that. I can however hear whats going on and learning the waves gives an understanding where the Red zones are ect. And I also like to buy real books again vs electronic and I use near no apps on android, instead go directly on internet. But its flip phone time, gps in car time, and mp3 player time.
hey Sean, on flip, had been without a cell over a year, as company beginning with a v tanked my phone and million other people when they ‘discontinued’ 3g, which they didn’t have to, because it’s base tech, same with browsers thing been going on, but back to point, was without and just using landline, looked for flip that wasn’t junk, looked at lot of reviews, was a hassle, one seemed least problem and finally bought was kyocera dura. and I put tape over camera, and removable opaque scotch tape all over the screen, because cams behind screen, imo. so blurs. lol. have to try stop the monkeys as we can. had two weeks now, ok so far. bought at a v store so if problem could return within couple weeks. thought to share if you happen back by thread.
And yep agree again on paper, reading at night way to go to sleep.
That makes sense. The news reporter has to come off like he knows exactly what he is doing.
And I have to admit, even after watching those You Tube news compilations where all the news reporters are saying near or the exact same thing on a particular important subject like, “Fake news,” that they all do such an excellent acting job. Totally scripted throughout the networks. Really an A plus on the acting. Barf!
I think todays article is highly valuable as a huge understanding of major clues on how to overcome and possibly overturn this situation we are in. What a contribution Jon Rappoport. Bookmarked for further study.
“I think [todays] article is highly valuable as a huge understanding of major clues on how to overcome and possibly overturn this situation we are in.”
Care to elaborate on that…overcome, overturn?
Michael, Is kinda like that old saying, Gods not finished with me yet. But basically the knowledge from this article reveals what is going on, and also what can be done about it. Like where to throw the monkey wrenchs where it counts.
….and the audience must be prone to suggestion based on their programming…..they can sell us just about anything at this point it seems.
dinger-you really nailed it. my sibs and their offspings-doctors, engineers and educators (!) are all dedicated doublethinkers. thanks for your analysis.
“Have you ever seen
a first-class hypnotist
perform his act?”
“He, from the beginning, was a murderer.”
~ said by a Truth-teller two millennia ago
“Murderer” on the tongue of a Jew, in that Region, at that Age, carried more the meaning of “blasphemy or desecration” than what we Moderns would ascribe as a killer of the physical.
And as was said most recently:
“It’s an old game. It wouldn’t be the first time…”
is the standard
all television news anchors
It is, a strange phenomenon indeed, to willingly carry The Lie. Somehow, somewhere, within the Heart & Mind, some cold comfort is issued. And accepted. Let’s not cut them any professional slack. They know (as we all do) precisely what they’re doing. Failure to think 1mm below the surface is no excuse.
Director Peter Jackson portrayed a ring of power as a gold piece.
I say, The Ring of Truth, is a Sound, clear, crystalline, & bell-like. It can move a mountain.
It most often stirs the Human Heart.
At “Sean” Yes, it ‘makes no sense’ until you realize that TV ‘news’ anchors and reporters must first be adroit actors/actresses. Thereafter, it becomes more and more easily seen. Also, they can slip up too badly and quickly become Cancelled – fired or ‘dismissed.’
“You been Hypnotize.” – author unknown
Cancel culture?? Not sure about that one. How about Cancel Truth? Is a new and massively differing “reality” soon to emerge? I do not know. Does anyone else reading know?
Piggybacking on Jon’s call last year for a “real” Covid test, I posted the following in response to a typical “believer’s” post on Facebook. It appears all these great believers in “science” are missing a step in their inquiry about “infection.” You can bet there will be no responses to this post as any expression of doubt directed at the faithful will be met with the expected derision.
>>Just curious. What actually constitutes an “infection”? I would think that a seriously ill Covid patient would have to have millions of Covid virus particles infecting his/her system. Certainly the PCR test only tells you about the PRESENCE of the virus (or rather genetic material related to the virus). Therefore do we determine “infection” simply from the symptoms (a seriously ill patient) and assume Covid caused it? Because if you simply go by the PCR test, it does not appear to give you a true picture of the nature of what’s going on (as opposed to a thorough examination utilizing an electron microscope).<<
And most importantly : The inventor of the PCR test has emphatically stated that it (PCR) cannot show a specific virus nor the viral load. The CLEAR conclusion being PCR is being used to perpetrate FRAUD. How does this escape public scutiny ? …oh yeah, the Mockingbird media: It was on tv so it must be true, right ? …the depth of mass mind control is truly astonishing.
I know its ridiculous, most don’t know the difference between a vaccine and gene therapy, and/or a spike protein reactive.
My friend — well that’s not true now, I think, since we argued and she was quite mad that I dared to inquire about any of this. One isn’t allowed to question the TPTB.
We were talking, the usual Covid small talk that eventually comes to dominate a conversation if not paid attention too…
We had a glass of wine — and there are new lockdown measures, no guests allow…anyway we had been out on a walk and we invited here in for a glass of wine.
Covid conversation lead to her admittance that she got the AstraZeneca jab, and was a bit worried that she would give us the virus.
I exclaim, but you didn’t get a vaccine, you got something else. A vaccine uses the supposed virus — deadened, gutted or some nonfatal form of it, to heighten you immunity response against that virus, and in the end you build up anti-bodies specific to said virus.
You got a gutted monkey adenovirus which comes from its adenoids, and which carries in it something to react against the spike protein which is on the outside of a virion of Sars-Cov-2 virus. They look like spikes on a WWII sea mine floating in the North Sea near England in 1944.
And these spikes cause a reaction in you, which is too late because the supposed DNA has been introduced into your system and now you a virus factory and that spike reaction is sometimes severe and sometimes cause problems with people with comorbidity.
Which cause in the end a immune response in you to create a defense against the monkey adenovirus, which is really only a common cold.
There is no Sars-cov-2 virus in the said vaccine you received, so you cannot spread the virus to me, because you don’t have it. You have a monkey adenovirus in you…
…and of course : The CIA’s direct infiltration via staffing “news” organizations with paid agents, vis-a-vis “Project Mockingbird.
One sees consenus-illusion-as-reality reflected in the population at large; the “echo chamber” of “public opinion”. As if an abstraction, i.e., the public, can have an authentic original idea / opinion in the way that a concrete, self-directed individual can. A complete absurdity. And absurdities lead to the normalization of atrocities. In the case of the CCP Virus, the atrocity of self-poisoning via vaccination… and demanding everyone else does… which really makes no sense at all: If vaxxing confers immunity and one is protected how are the unvaxxed a threat to anyone except the unvaxxed ? …of which choice to be or not is everyone’s right. But then there is the obfuscation-absurdity concerning vaccine shedding that spreads the very thing it is supposed to prevent ! I mentioned this in a conversation with a recently jabbed mind controlled victim. She had been pre-programmed with “shedding only true of attenuated virus vaccines”. I suggested it would create new viruses. Her response : “Well, so, it won’t be THIS virus.” Flabbergasted, I had to walk away. Carl Jung was correct : “Thinking is hard, most people just judge.” One might consider that statement as a sincere compassionate professional assessment. Bernays et al (Rockefellers et al !) cynically applied it as “people are stupid parrots”… and we know how to control them for fun & profit.
I agree 100%. A meme going around was a woman standing next to a tv with a hammer, she smashes the TV and says, I just cured Covid. And I have been believing that.
But for people who have died of the IRT that is the result of their body reacting to the SARS-COV2 virus by getting COVID-19, it can’t be that they all got blood clots from their toxic medications. Why are people dying of IRT after being injected with any of the 3 jabs?
So I am still at a place where I understand what Jon is saying about the virus not being isolated, and I believe that. However, with the slow (too slow) revelation that is happening now across the platforms that the “virus” came from the lab in Wuhan (DUH!), the evidence of this truly being a manmade bioweapon changes the picture for me. Something came from that lab.
I just discovered Dr. Richard Flemming’s (an allopath) work in which he is certain it is a MAN MADE weapon that infects the cells specifically n order to cause thrombosis. He being an expert in Thrombosis as he was saying things about Respiratory illnesses and Inflammatory Heart Disease and blood clots since 1994.
From his site:
Evidence shows that this virus is
engineered with Gain of Function (GoF)
including mechanisms creating an
Inflammo Thrombotic Response (ITR) with
mRNA Reverse Transcription (RT)
into cell DNA with Prion-like structures
presence in the virus spike protein.
So with that said, anyone who has taken the vaccine is up shits creek. People could survive the IRT if they are treated for it properly. They can take HCQ or Ivermectin. But once they have the vaccine, it is like Dr. Tenpenny says and all others say when you are faced with any caronoa virus that occurs in nature, you may wind up dying of a blood clot! Even a year or so down the road.
So no matter what road we take to get to the place that the vaccine is going to make things much worse for people well, that only means one thing. THIS IS AN ATTACK ON HUMAITY> NO IF’S ANDS OR BUTS.
Also Dr. Hatfield has stated on War Room Pandemic – “HCQ is a treatment for this 100%. It was purposefully withheld in order to develop a vaccine” – He is quite dubious about the “vaccines”.
This a a crime against humanity!!!
Also increasing in alarming statement is Dr. Michael Yeardon who is now believing that this entire thing including the vaccines is an engineered genocide. (he was warning just as the vaccines were being rolled out that the vaccines may interfere with the development of a placenta in mammals. He goes much much further here.
He says – YOUR GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO KILL YOU!
A friend who worked as a substance abuse counselor told me, “Most people don’t believe in God.” How could he tell? “They don’t act like it.”
I’d like to add, Most people don’t care for the truth. You can tell because they don’t believe it when they hear it, even with evidence. It’s that simple.
However, most people do believe narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths are normal decent people. If you tell a friend or coworker or relative otherwise, they won’t believe you, really, even though you know firsthand because you’ve caught the sociopath in your life lying (which they do compulsively),gaslighting, bullying, talking dirt behind your back, making sure you don’t get promoted despite good work, etc.
So, there seems to be three kinds of people: psychopaths-sociopaths-narcissists (all lacking empathy but great actors who suck victims in by playing the victim, always), “decent” people who enable them (as a form of self-protection?) and don’t/won’t believe you no matter what,and frustrated people who tell the truth because they believe it matters and who (it seems to me) never seem to get it that the only way to win is not to play.
Some nice wisdom in your post. Your friends said that because he doesn’t see people evincing any real faith in God. Faith takes some work and most people don’t like work, especially the work that requires soul searching–and this is the biggest soul search of dem all.
Your three basic peeps makes sense. The second group is a toughie, and that’s most people, hence the masks and the needles. Most of us here are in the last group. And the most sagacious line is your last one. We think we have to play every match, strike our saber in every argument. There’s where the truth meets our ego. It’s a good lesson, many of us are learning these days. Thanks brother.
“Have you ever seen a first-class hypnotist perform his act? The basic requirement—he must appear to know exactly what he’s doing. That skill is paramount. And this is the standard toward which all television news anchors aspire.”
What is an “Anchor”? It is a thing that grounds you…keeps you safe from harm. Something that works for your good. It tames the raging seas and gives you a platform to live and exist without turmoil and external dangers. You can reply on it for support and stability and security. Always. All you have to do is ANCHOR YOURSELF TO THAT SPOT.
So…by extension… an Anchor Person MUST be someone you can trust, right? Someone
who keeps you safe from harm. Someone who works for your good. Someone who tames the raging seas of a dangerous World and the endless blizzard of information to give you a safe space to live without turmoil and danger. So, you trust your Anchor Person to be a source of support, stability, and security. All you have to do is STOP THINKING FOR YOURSELF. Just anchor yourself to that man or woman. Put yourself in their trustworthy care. Let down. Let go. Bask and bathe yourself in the sweet sounds of their authoritative and all-knowing pleasing voices.
An Anchor Person can also be viewed as… Daddy (if you like your Daddy, that is). Or a trusted friend. Or a good teacher or preacher you once had. Everyone wants the safety of a good Mommy or Daddy…so of course you want Mommy or Daddy in your Anchor Chair reassuring you like a good parent to calm your nerves and wipe away the confusion and
ambiguity of our times.
You sit yourself in front of the tube and say, “Tell me a story, Daddy!” And Mommy or Daddy are there waiting for you… all pretty-ed up and carefully reading their teleprompter
storytime fairy tale drivel with trustworthy voices of authority and reassurance. And you eat it up. You want more. You’re hooked on this stuff.
It’s so nice to trust someone again. They are always there for you. Their perky smiles and friendly banter fills the space between the wonderful daily fairy tales they read to you. And you wonder if you’ve ever felt happier than right now. Just don’t think about it.
All you have to do is ANCHOR YOURSELF TO THAT SPOT. And trust Daddy.
shaman: Their perky smiles and friendly banter fills the space between the wonderful daily fairy tales they read to you.
rick: Not a news item goes by without me heckling them in the space between their fairy tales. I’m a tv news heckler. I repeat their stock phrases mockingly. I insult their appearance. Maybe talking back to the tv is key to avoiding being hypnotized.
Wow confirmation and validation of one of my personal defenses against media lies ! One must counter the babble spewing from “the idiot box”… talking back really is effective in countering lies whether tv or from some idiot parroting the box. …happy to hear others do same… as well as always bearing in mind Mark Twain’s maxim about the newspapers, the only media of his day: “If you don’t read the newspapers you are uninformed. If you do read the newspapers you are misinformed.”
I believe the T.V does hypnotize . I was in the service bussiness for 30 years I worked in peoples homes sometimes 10 service calls a day 6 days a week. You would not belive how many people get up in the morning and turn on the T.V and leave it on until they go to bed . In many homes there would a T.V on in every room,I have even seen them in bathrooms .
People use it to ward off fear. And silence. And fear of silence. They’ve used it so long now they feel guilty about it and so it’s fear plus guilt.
But it’s okay. The silence is your friend. It’s waiting for you with open arms. That’s the thing people forget. That they’ve been brainwashed into forgetting.
I wish they would let go.
Happy Birthday and a very long life ! We need you !
Excellent! Shared in my circle.
Uniformity is important. But now cancelling the opposition is important too so as to present the illusion of uniformity and promote group think. Many have been censored. The scathing views of Kary Mullis (inventor of PCR/covid “test”) have been disappearing over the last year. In fact, this vocal Fauci detractor died the summer before covid.
The phony baloney U.S. of Everything is Rigged, Illegal (or pending).
Exemplified by a M$M fifth column of presstitutes and their corporate pimps.
Another timely article, Jon, so succinctly put. It may well be that such a zeitgeist as that which we have entered nullifies the possibility of any ‘outward’ clarification, and that an essential truth will always nullify itself.
Still, I cannot understand why nobody in Congress, for starters, has confronted Fauci on the basis of absolutely incontrovertible evidence that he is plainly a highly accomplished liar; moreover, one who is prepared to lie to the public on a grand scale if he deems it necessary to do so. His claim in March last year that masks don’t work was, by his own admission, an effortlessly delivered lie. And so how might he expect to win the trust of the public when they have been afforded such a demonstration? He was, after all, perfectly convincing in the first instance. Even Orwellian doublethink cannot counter this type of charge.
A similar kind of perspective is involved when considering Bill Gates’s infamous Ted Talk about administering vaccines to reduce populations. One group said he meant to use it as a bio weapon, while the other claimed that he meant it to be used as a means of reducing the risk of infant mortality, meaning that families will not fear requiring ‘backup’ etc. Yet the glaring problem is simply that Gates himself never qualified what he meant, and a) given the ample degree of potential for such a remark to be misinterpreted either way, and b) that he surely would not want to be interpreted as implying the former if his intentions were decent, we might only conclude that his intentions were indeed very sinister.
Yet somehow such obvious and damning modes of enquiry – such as with regard to Fauci and Gates – get constantly overlooked.
His death is merely another random coincidence no doubt according to the news industry’s penchant for ignoring reality, i.e. cause and effect. Anyone who allows themselves to be programmed by it not only unquestioningly accepts the lies, they also internalize the inability to make connections / synthesize information. According to the “news” everything is just random chaos. This is the polar opposite of investigative journalism that seeks to make accurate and truthful sense of what, where, when, how, who and why.
