Mainstream media propaganda in America
By Don Cobb
October 21, 2009

Clearly ABC, CBS and NBC are no longer reliable, unbiased news sources, and neither are CNN or MSNBC. If there was any doubt about this fact, it was proven during the 2008 Presidential primaries, campaigns and elections and continues to bear out over the months since the election. There was nothing unbiased about CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC's coverage of the 2008 Presidential election as all of these networks worked openly and feverishly to get Barrack Hussein Obama elected. They didn't feign objectivity nor did they attempt to hide their bias. There was no "fair and balanced" or unbiased journalism taking place on the big three networks. The vast majority of Americans in a recent poll acknowledged knowing that the mainstream media was instrumental in getting Obama and Co. elected, which mean those networks are no longer reliable, unbiased news sources but are propaganda machines.


Remember back in the day when the Communists openly used propaganda to demonize the USA? Russia, China, Cuba and other Communist countries have always used propaganda to dissuade their citizens from learning what The United States of America, the Melting Pot of the World was really all about. Why this mass manipulation of public opinion against the USA? Propaganda can be very effective in controlling the masses and in manipulating public opinion. In this case, the Communists didn't want their citizens to emigrate to the Land of the Free, and quite the contrary, they wanted to foster hatred toward the U.S. Germany used propaganda to convince an already bigoted populace that Jews were less than Human, of no value, and eventually German propaganda led the German citizenry to believe that Jews needed to be killed, that killing Jewish families was a good idea. It was the power of propaganda that convinced and brain-washed the German citizens into supporting the Genocide which resulted in more than 6 million Jewish families being slaughtered, gassed and murdered.


America just elected a man whom no one really knows, an unknown Chicago politician with close personal relationships with convicted terrorists (among them: Bill Ayers) who bombed the Pentagon. This unknown man Obama, we learned, also sat in an openly racist and white-hating, America-bashing church for 17 years, listening to a pastor spew hate and condemnation, even cursing America from the pulpit (you've likely seen the videos), continually condemned all White people, preaching anger and hate every Sunday for all who would listen. This man Obama that Propaganda just elected has also refused to provide evidence that he is even eligible for the office of the Presidency, and reportedly has spent more than $1,000,000 in attorney fees to fight lawsuits demanding that he produce his birth certificate! Refusing to produce his birth certificate, America doesn't even know if Obama is an American citizen. Obama has legally locked up all of his school records, college records, passport and travel information so that no one can verify his past or who he really is, in what country he holds citizenship, whether or not he is even eligible to hold this office. Obama refuses to let America know who he really is. Yet, America voted for this unknown and probably ineligible man who is best friends with a convicted terrorist who bombed the Pentagon. America voted for this stranger we know nothing about because the propaganda produced by CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC was just as effective as Adolph Hitler's propaganda, convincing otherwise intelligent people to vote for a man with ties to criminals, who is still hiding his past so that America won't find out who he really is. Propaganda works. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC & CBS just proved that.

Propaganda can be so effective, that amazingly, even now, while we've watched this man Obama lie to America repeatedly through his campaign and continue to lie about the Communist agenda he and his Marxist/Socialist/Communist friends are trying to force-feed America, many Americans still support him. Effective propaganda can convince people that evil is good, that criminals are trustworthy, that the Constitution isn't worth defending, and that America is bad. I believe that is what the propaganda networks have accomplished through a subtle, ongoing and continuous propaganda campaign for 4 decades now.


Truly, after the blatant abandonment by the mainstream media of balanced, unbiased journalism displayed through the 2008 presidential election, only a fool or a person already mentally manipulated and seriously affected by decades of propaganda would watch the above-mentioned networks present anything as "news." The vast majority of Americans have already admitted that these networks engaged in propaganda designed to get an unknown man who is likely not even an American citizen elected to the highest office in the land, an office he is almost certainly not eligible for. We know these networks have an agenda and are willing to do whatever it takes to further that agenda, yet some of us continue to rely on these propagandists for national and world news. Insane? Logic and reason say "yes, it's insane."

If you find yourself still watching and relying on any of these supposed "news" sources now, you can know that your mind has already been manipulated by years of propaganda. That an otherwise intelligent person would watch known propaganda news sources in order to get information about U.S. or world events suggests that (a) your mind has already been manipulated into accepting propaganda and lies as the truth or (b) perhaps you're simply a sociopath who doesn't care about anyone or anything. I don't see any other logical reason why a person would intentionally feed themselves propaganda.


While gullible, complacent, arrogant and lazy, apathetic and stoned Americans continue to let the mainstream media feed them crap and lies and call it "news," government-run schools filled with Marxist/Socialist believing teachers have been hard at work feeding their Communist agenda to children in the public school system. While not all teachers are Socialists, there has been an intentional effort by American Marxist/Socialists to become teachers at every level of the education system. If you haven't read the Communist Manifesto, and you watch mainstream media 'news' propaganda, you've likely already dismissed what I'm saying because decades of propaganda in America has been aimed at vilifying those who would make even a suggestion of "conspiracy."

The only explanation that makes sense to this writer as to why Americans are still supporting an administration that has Communist roots and has taken swift and wide sweeping steps implementing Communist governance here in America is that propaganda works...and works well. So well, in fact, that some folks don't even realize why they support what they support.

The bottom line? Propaganda works.
