Once upon a time, back when Ted Turner first began international coverage of the news, he actually called me one wonderful day and literally gave me my own camera crew to film the news in NYC for a month! It was grand fun. Then, years later, he sold stock in his media operation and was told by a bunch of hot shot Wall Street scam artists, he could be very rich while still staying the head of the board of directors of CNN.
Then, they dumped him unceremoniously and turned a great TV operation into a dull, ugly, propaganda machine that lies, lies and tells more lies nearly nonstop. Barely any real news comes out of that operation these days. Once upon a time, Ted actually thought that letting the camera crews simply run amok made for great news and he was 100% right. For example when the Berlin Wall fell, he had the only international camera crew at the East German press conference where they announced they would not shoot anyone going over the wall.
The CNN camera crew then ran through the streets of East Berlin yelling the news and went to interview the tower guards. They trusted CNN! So they put down their guns. And then the President of East Germany ordered them to shoot but they refused! Thanks to CNN.
CNN is responsible for Tiananmen Square, too. All the mainstream media removed their camera crews when the President left his official visit. Not CNN. The students, noting that what they wanted to say would be broadcast internationally, live, went on camera and it ballooned tremendously, swiftly. Thanks entirely to CNN letting the camera crews roam freely and broadcast with no filters.
That has been long, long dead a while now. Today, CNN got a new boss: Jeff Zucker To CNN: Former NBCUniversal Chief Will Reportedly Lead Network. Who is this jerk? Why, a Zionist AIPAC spokesperson! HAHAHA. The iron grip of death that is strangling all our news media continues to tighten the noose even as the audience boos and departs. They don’t care. So long as we have no real news from one quarter or two thirds of the planet, it is fine with the Zionists.
His propagandistic and sadistic approach to the news staff and news coming in from all over the planet became a Dead Sea covered with black mud at NBC. Many years ago, NBC reporters actually talked to me until they were ordered to stay away. CNN, on the other hand, had no filters on my commentary.
A true story: Phil Donahue wanted to put me on his show. Along with a committee of foreign Chinese students who wanted to discuss the situation in China. Well…when I arrived, a very frightened host ran up to me in great distress and ordered me to leave quickly. The students bristled and talked (in Chinese) about trashing the studio in retaliation. I asked Phil who talked to him between the time the limo picked me up and me walking in the door. He refused to say. So I said, ‘YOU are next. They will cancel you when you step over that invisible line, all you have to do is question the wars brewing in the Middle East.’
And voila: a few years later, he was suddenly sacked even though his show was popular and he vanished. Paid to be silent, he stopped talking about the illegality of the invasion of Iraq and he is now one of many Invisible Media People like myself.
