Sharyl Attkisson – Astroturf & Manipulation Of Media Messages

In this eye-opening talk provided in the video below, veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson shows how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.

Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist based in Washington D.C. She is currently writing a book entitled Stonewalled (Harper Collins), which addresses the unseen influences of corporations and special interests on the information and images the public receives every day in the news and elsewhere. For twenty years (through March 2014), Attkisson was a correspondent for CBS News. In 2013, she received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism for her reporting on “The Business of Congress,” which included an undercover investigation into fundraising by Republican freshmen. She also received Emmy nominations in 2013 for Benghazi: Dying for Security and Green Energy Going Red. Additionally, Attkisson received a 2013 Daytime Emmy Award as part of the CBS Sunday Morning team’s entry for Outstanding Morning Program for her report: “Washington Lobbying: K-Street Behind Closed Doors.” In September 2012, Attkisson also received an Emmy for Oustanding Investigative Journalism for the “Gunwalker: Fast and Furious” story. She received the RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting for the same story. Attkisson received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2009 for her exclusive investigations into TARP and the bank bailout. She received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2002 for her series of exclusive reports about mismanagement at the Red Cross.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Analyzing Human Action – San Bernardino, CA Shootings

In light of the recent events that have taken place in San Bernardino, the emotive response from the populace has been quite predictable -unfettered emotions to the nth degree.

Never mind the fact that the mainstream media was inconsistent as can be about the reporting in their usual trustworthy unreliable way. Or the fact that they are as reliable as a weather forecast on a daily basis. Or that they continue to stir agendas that stoke the left vs. right paradigm of separatism that has plagued our modern world.

How about larger issues?  How about the fact that more people die from overdoses than they do from car accidents or guns? Or that prescription drugs kill 6200% more than homicidal shootings. But worry not, that’s all ‘part of the plan’.

Moreover, we can now see folks from all strata of society blaming muslims/ISIS, which is extremely convenient for those who pull the strings via false flags and there in.

After this latest event, am utterly convinced that a high school student with a triple digit IQ could easily carry out a false flag operation, and people wouldn’t question a semblance of it. Countless people continue swallowing propaganda like Americans swallow noxious pills is reaching untold levels to the tune of 4 Billion prescriptions a year.

In the wake of this shooting, many people will focus their attention on this issue, which for all intents and purposes is important, but not as important as the loss of countless hundreds of thousands every year within the American landscape.

If you think that’s not possible, because you ‘haven’t heard it in the media’ [as if they are the gatekeepers of reality] then you haven’t been paying attention to the mainstream media manipulation and propaganda.

As outlined by Dr. Barbara Starfield many years ago – who has impeccable credentials – in a study called “Is US Health Really The Best In The World?” there are essentially a minimum of 225,000 deaths that take place every year via the medical system. That is, 119,000 deaths a year from errors during treatments, and 106,000 deaths per year from FDA-approved [yes, you heard that right] medical drugs. That would also pin those deaths as the third leading cause of death, as of 2013 even though those numbers are extremely old. How about them apples pills?

Keep in mind, the above numbers are based on a decade old study, and new numbers pose a much more ominous outlook.

One must also note, that all of the above does not even begin to touch the numbers of people that are losing their lives every year via the corrupt cancer industry, that’s obviously attached at the hip to Big Medica.

The mind boggling number of those unfortunate cancer deaths as of 2013 is 584,881 people according to the CDC website. Given the fact that there are documentaries such as this one, that outline a few of the many cancer cures, you have to wonder, what the hell is going on? And what about all the fraud that is taking place in the cancer industry?

Why are people ultimately focusing on the most minute of problems, when enormous planet-sized issues are roaming around like a herd of elephants in a room stampeding undeterred. Because the media is controlling their reality – what they see, and what they don’t.

Its a rather elegant thing, the social engineering and manipulation of an entire populace when viewed from a detached perspective.

Just as one can be enveloped by the MSM propaganda, one can similarly unhinge their hooks from your mind and pierce the veil of the matrix they cast on a daily basis.

Next time such a questionable event happens, such as the shooting in San Bernardino, CA, are you willing to wager that the media will tell you the complete story? Or are you going to do some groundwork yourself and figure out what’s really what, given the MSM’s knack for unbiased news misinformation.

While we should certainly be mindful and respectful of those that have lost their lives just yesterday, we should also be mindful at the countless hundreds of thousands that lose their lives, year in and year out.

Isn’t that a more pressing issue? The loss of life via the medical system is many many many magnitudes worse than all shootings combined yearly, by a landslide.

Better yet, why don’t we keep in mind everyone that’s lost their lives in unfortunate circumstances such as the ones detailed above?

Only way to do that is to educate yourself and quit relying on those that misinform you at every turn.

If you want to pierce the veil, action with precision is what one needs to undertake. If not, Big Pharma has a blue pill they want to sell you.

The choice is yours, as always.

Digressing, please keep in mind:

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
– Hermann Goering
