UPDATE: Reddit removes #1 headline, "CNN Exposed" from front page

Did anyone else catch this?

CNN Exposed – Emmy Winning Former CNN Journalist Blows The Whistle: CNN is paid by foreign and domestic Government agencies for specific content...

Amber Lyon is the referenced former CNN reporter, whom I'm sure many here know from her work with Ben Swann and his Truth In Media project.

I just found it interesting that this was briefly the number one headline before Reddit decided to kill it for whatever reason. It had well over five thousand up-votes and close to two thousand comments.


I see Reddit mods have labeled this post Out of date. I personally find this to be a bullsh** excuse.

First, the subcategory /worldnews under which this was posted does not mention a timeline under their posting guidelines. How strictly has this unwritten rule been adhered to historically I wonder? And exactly how long before an article is considered "out of date"? In this case the referenced article was barely two months old, created on Aug 23, 2013.

Secondly, Reddit is a community that prides itself on citizen journalism. As they describe it, "redditors vote on which stories and discussions are important. the hottest stories rise to the top, while cooler stories sink."

Well, apparently there's more to it than they claim and I find that shameful.

CNN is as disgraceful as

CNN is as disgraceful as Fareed and worthless trash show GPS, as disgraceful as Dana Bash. As disgraceful as the corporate sponsors at CNN. Boycott them all.

What a campaign of disinformation. If America can't figure out the PSYOPS that's being played through State media, well I guess we should take the fluoride out of the water and pull the kids from Public Education.

Notice....the demonization of the "Tea Party". Like they want to "label" an entire group of people. Yes demonization. I mean they can't bash Ron Paul anymore, but with Ted Cruz on the rise, they sure want to demonize him, and it as disgraceful as the reporting of Woofie.

And then they got their paid pundits and arms of the parties on there, as they push mainstream (group think), status quo maintenance, and keep up their campaign of blaming others, like the Koch Bros.

I've heard all this ignorance before. I hear it from the left. They really need better talking points.

Be Your Own Media! And boycott CNN sponsors. Plan signs in the background and bring them out on LIVE TV. We need an uprising of people holding up signs LIVE on the air. This is one way to get even. Then they can hit the kill switch on the stream and go back to more lies and propaganda, and then they can scrub the internet later.

Now is the time to get even before they start up the campaign trail with Hillary and the Global Initiative....because this is going to get ugly.

Truth will prevail, only the ignorant will be too stupified to recognize the truth, and thus ....CNN or ZNN.

Be Your Own Media!!!

I'll one up it...

CIA has agents working as producer at all major news stations. Several other agencies monitor and have kill switches.

For instance:

The killswitch the (DoD? CIA?) used during an interview with an active duty military soldier in uniform during the last election, as he was talking about his support for Ron Paul live on-air ...

.. they suddenly cut the feed due to random "satellite error".

I've noticed several

I've noticed several minute-ish dropouts on Fox News' audio feed on Sirius lately - usually starting a few words into a guest's / interviewee's statement.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

I wouldnt be surprised to

I wouldnt be surprised to learn the same entities using reddit in the same fashion, seing the copious ammounts of pro-government posts permeating reddit/politics, does anyone remember if it was like this pre sopa?

Amber Lyon is in Chicago for a Talk this weekend

I don't normally cross post but if you're in the Chicago area and want to hear her speak or want to speak to her, check out this thread.

Speakers are pretty progressive

in thought and actions.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

I think they removed it because it is from August 23.

The tag next to the title says: Out of date.

Love thy enemy.


Because Reddit is famous for never allowing reposts and dupes on the front page!!

I was gonna say...

Eventually the post was going to get bumped off the front page.
