How corrupted is MSM in the US? Well, now and again they manage to sneak in an actual news report which is problematic for the controllers and they remove it lickety-split.
Tucker spoke about this last night. Will post that show soon.
Let’s begin by operationalizing three important and constantly abused terms. Abused mostly by politicians and media with full understanding of the nature of the abuse.
Propaganda: Fairly obvious government messaging that any reasonably thoughtful or aware person can spot.
Disinformation: Deliberate untruths or rhetorical devices intended to harm the target. The target can be an entire population.
Misinformation: The repetition of disinformation by a naive target that believes it and passes it on as truth.
For a sterling example of disinformation, watch Justin Trudeau use that word. He actually uses the word “Disinformation” as disinformation. And I’m sure he thinks that’s clever.
Disinformation has a lot of tactics as well. They can be subtle and hard to spot if you don’t already know they are tactics. One example might be where there appears to be a government leak and the information appears to hurt the government that leaked it but it contains a key bit of disinformation intended to create the behaviour they want. One example might be the leak from early in the Covid years where a Canadian government memo was said to have leaked and talked about building effectively gulags. I don’t remember all the details but I should. This site published it as a maybe-it’s-true item. And it came from a great source within the government but I think as misinformation, not deliberate misdirection.
This site covered a more blatant form of disinformation a few years ago. It is when it fabricated a motive for a leftist Trump hater at a performance of Fidler on the Roof, claiming that the man was a “trump supporter”. Global news was in possession of the facts when they wrote the article claiming he was a Trump supporter, and they did not update the article to correct it to the truth for weeks which is as long as I bothered to check up on it.
The same day the man stood up and drunkenly did a Nazi salute at the play, right before intermission, video was circulating about how he explained to the police in the lobby of the theatre right there at intermission, that he hated Trump so much that the evil doers in the play reminded him of Trump and Trump is like Hitler, so he gave the Nazi salute. Global knew the truth. They could not have not known it as anyone who read the source news would have seen it.
1 of 2: This is Satchel Tate from Nova Scotia. During a game last week, playing for @HPAsBaseball 13U, he had a stroke. His recovery will be lengthy and difficult, so I’m asking for your help; not with money, but with a card or letter. pic.twitter.com/4w7liHcfze

Before I post the excerpt in question, ask yourself what you would want to know most about the story. What would the single burning question be, not just since Covid, not just since the Vaxx rollout, but at any point, what would you want to know about the story? How his family felt about him? How his team mates felt? A tribute by the Toronto Blue Jays? Or what on God’s green earth would cause a 12 year old who is a healthy athlete to suffer a crippling stroke?
Now add in an experimental gene-therapy that all kids have to take in order to play any form of organized sports and ask the same question. A gene-therapy that is known without argument at this point, to cause blood clots. Especially in athletic young men. So much so that Denmark has now banned the injections for people under 18 years old.
The article gives a lot of nicey fluff about how people feel, although none of it is anger, and then goes on to say this:
Notice how they slipped that in.
For the team, a team that all would have had to take the same injections in order to play, “the cause is the least of their concerns”.
Whoever did that interview was more lawyer than journalist. And I bet I know who has that lawyer on retainer.
But given Global’s track record of outright lies to suit a political narrative we probably can’t know what they really said. And given how the media treats any statement about the injections that may cause people to question taking it, its also easy to see this piece for what it is.
Outright Soviet level propaganda, and disinformation.
And the harm it does and to who?
I’m sure we can all figure that out.
Meanwhile, in Clayton Valley USA, another 12 year old athlete dies due to a “severe medical emergency”.
Two days after he was brought to the hospital, he passed away.
“With deep sadness and heavy hearts, we inform you of the passing of our jr. varsity football athlete. As many of you are aware our jr. varsity athlete unexpectedly experienced a medical emergency unrelated to the sport of football Friday during our evening football practice,” Clayton Valley Athletic Association announced on Sunday.

This is an update to the post from earlier where the European head of NATO appeared to have made some pro-freedom noises. One of our most perceptive readers has sent in the following comment about this video, which changes its context by 180 degrees.
We have caught Euronews lying to its audience before, and in an equally brutal manner. From memory, one of the best examples is when they showed muslim girls seeming to wave lovingly at the Pope as he drove by them in the Central African Republic (CAR) and cut the audio out so you couldn’t hear that they were actually mocking and deriding him.
They actually used some of the same video and did a voiceover to convey the opposite of what happened. Much like CBC, Global, CNN and CTV do.
Below, the email about the European NATO Chief with much thanks to Kalloi:
The context of the speech under the video you posted actually means the exact opposite of what the title of the video suggests:‘Freedom is more important than free trade’.NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg urges countries to look beyond their economic interests in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as world leaders gather in Davos for the World Economic Forum 2022.
Translation: we are gonna crush the economies of the West (and the rest) by not trading with Russia, using the “freedom” of Ukraine as an excuse; and when you are all on your knees we will enslave you, muhahaha.So the Comintern (Euronews) deceptively cut a part of the speech out of contex in order to deceive the viewers, and gave a title to the video that means the absolute opposite of what is being planned in Davos and what Stoltenberg really means, to confuse and mislead folks so that the globalists can rob and enslave them more easily in the framework of the “4th Industrial Revolution”.Nothing short of criminal — a war crime in fact, considering the magnitude of the economic warfare being waged on the citizens of the NATO countries and the curtailing of human rights. “Freedom”, my @ss! — How utterly ironical — it is almost as if they are mocking us by uttering that word! They are literally laughing at us while they are deceiving and mistreating us. This little event on Euronews goes to show that it is all a carefully crafted and conscious entrapment of the population; these people (the global parasitic overclass mistakenly called as ‘elites’) are 100% psychopaths.
If anyone can find the full unedited speech, please post it to the comments here and we shall add it to this post.
UPDATE: Here is the whole speech:
In FACT, Trump supporters were spotting ANTIFA false flaggers and grabbed them and stopped them.
Below is the tweet. but the same video is above as we all know what happens to evidence of reality.

South Dakota took a balanced approach to fighting #COVID19. Many in the media disagree with our respect for freedom. They'll continue to attack us for the path that we've taken, but South Dakota is proof that freedom works, even in the face of a global pandemic. pic.twitter.com/1vKU3R6Rmk

This is a worthwhile thread. And any reader of Vlad’s for over a few months will recognize many of these events, which helps put us at ease about the veracity of his other observations.
I don’t know how to post an entire thread here, but click through to this one and you should be able to see all, 18 posts in this thread.
1. Something needs to be done about Google. Its search engine has 92% market share. Google is aware of its massive power & seeks to exploit it to the max. It has become an enemy to freedom.

If power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, we need a third order of magnitude statement to describe what Google has become.
This article written years ago by an authority on the subject, details how it can be determined that Google does indeed slant its search results in contradiction to its own stated rules of operation.
Exactly. Stop and contemplate the enormity. It is a direct repudiation of the principle of individualism that is the heart of what used to be the American Creed. Treating people fairly as individuals is no longer even the ideal. https://t.co/2RIZg8Jr30

Indeed. Contemplate the enormity. It is Harrison Bergeron being demanded and nothing less. The Dystopian future novels set is nearly complete.
I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago. I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home. The reason for this effort was clear: The paper’s failure to anticipate the outcome of the 2016 election meant that it didn’t have a firm grasp of the country it covers. Dean Baquet and others have admitted as much on various occasions. The priority in Opinion was to help redress that critical shortcoming.
I was honored to be part of that effort, led by James Bennet. I am proud of my work as a writer and as an editor. Among those I helped bring to our pages: the Venezuelan dissident Wuilly Arteaga; the Iranian chess champion Dorsa Derakhshani; and the Hong Kong Christian democrat Derek Lam. Also: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Masih Alinejad, Zaina Arafat, Elna Baker, Rachael Denhollander, Matti Friedman, Nick Gillespie, Heather Heying, Randall Kennedy, Julius Krein, Monica Lewinsky, Glenn Loury, Jesse Singal, Ali Soufan, Chloe Valdary, Thomas Chatterton Williams, Wesley Yang, and many others.
But the lessons that ought to have followed the election—lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society—have not been learned. Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.
We suggest downloading and saving the page as it likely won’t be online long.
Adding tweets as we find them:
The news is dead. Journalism is gone and people have no idea what is true.
This is an important thread on what is going on.
The death of the news is one of the biggest stories in the world right now.
It’s related to a lot of other problems because people are misinformed. https://t.co/l3A4T0Aiv5

“The real story is the loss of the news altogether, and the news cannot report on it”
Bari Weiss has now resigned from the @nytimes. And that is not even “The Story”. I‘ve just spoken to Bari & learned that I‘m finally free to tweet.
Her letter hints at the real News: the *loss* of the News is now *the* News, and the News cannot cover it.https://t.co/JBXNIgI62L
