CNN paid by US and foreign governments to control content - Emmy winning reporter blows the whistle

"CNN is paid by the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. The Obama Administration pays CNN for content control.

Let that sink in.

Additionally CNN and CNN International are also paid by foreign governments to avoid stories that are damaging, and construct narratives that show them in a better, albeit false, light.

Amber Lyon is a three-time Emmy winning investigative journalist and photographer. She accuses CNN of being “fake news.”

Back in March 2011, CNN sent a four person team to Bahrain to cover the Arab Spring. Once there, the crew was the subject of extreme intimidation amongst other things, but they were able to record some fantastic footage."

They're pissing in the wind. LOL.

Still trying to write the reaction and solution telling you how to think about everything. They can't reach critical mass brainwashing anymore because their audience is too tiny.

What I find amusing is the facial reactions of the progressives, using that tactic to dismiss what the naysayers are saying. You see them using that indignant dismissive facial expression technique on their new show Crossfire a lot. Van Jones is pretty good at it.

I saw Corey Booker use that face too

Unfortunately he won the Senate seat though.

Every major news agency that doesn't headline this story....

it can be safely assumed that they are on the government payroll as well.

I'd love to see a new post with a listing of online news outlets that the majority see as balanced.

It's definitely not Fox News or MSNBC.

Most news outlets are politically biased with slanted reporting which is to be expected given human nature.

However, accepting government payoffs to distract or falsely influence us is criminal on both sides.

Obama is in bed with CNN!

I am shocked! LOL

If CNN gets paid

In FRNs, MSNBC must get paid in GOLD.

Remember the Maine?

Lincoln had a number of newspapers shut down for negative press. I wonder how the positive press made out?

They did it in the 18th century, too, albeit on a smaller scale.

Propaganda pays.

Relying on Facebook and the internet is the problem...

Easy to track protesters and censor... Facebook and legacy internet need to be replaced...


The press has always been an instrument of propaganda, the scam was leading people to think the modern press was somehow impartial, objective, or otherwise a check to the government...Nope.
