TRUTH-TELLERS

 

"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct.
Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.
If you're right and you know it, speak your mind.
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth."

Mahatma Gandhi

INDEPENDENT VOICES COMMITTED TO THE TRUTH

 


Robert Fisk

 

"We hear about the occasions when there are differences between the mainstream media and the government. What we don't hear about are the 95 percent of occasions where the mainstream media faithfully propagate disinformation stories which are often planted by the CIA, sometimes planted abroad in newspapers that they may own or that are friendly to them."

Michael Parenti, 1988

 


David Hearst / Ulson Gunnar / Frederick Gareau

 

"During its first fifty years of existence, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was almost never mentioned by any of the moguls of the mass media. When you realize that the membership of the CFR includes top executives from the New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Knight Newspaper chain, NBC, CBS, Time, Life, Fortune, Business Week, US News and World Report, and many others, you can be sure that such anonymity is not accidental."

Gary Allen

 


Richard Gage / Frank Furedi / Kathryn Foxhall

 

"In America, we grew up thinking that the people that we see on the nightly news are journalists. But, there is no journalism happening there, only script reading. That is understood by anyone with a sliver of common sense, and the objectivity to realize that their newsperson is basically an actor."

Charlie Robinson, in his book "The Octopus of Global Control", 2017

 


Seymour Hersch / Hugo Chavez / Carroll Quigley

 

"The involvement of the Rockefellers with the media has multiple implications. One is that the Rockefeller gang's plans for monopolistic World Government are never, but never, discussed in the machines of mass disinformation. The media decides what the issues will be in the country."

Gary Allen in his book "The Rockefeller File"

 


Barbara Loe Fisher / Chalmers Johnson / George McGovern

 

"No journalist makes $5 million a year. No journalist has a comfortable, cozy relationship with the powerful. No journalist believes that acting as a conduit, or a stenographer for the powerful is a primary part of his or her calling. Those in power fear and dislike real journalists."

Chris Hedges, 2008

 

"US corporate-owned media, in league with government agencies, orchestrate media coverage to demonize states in conflict with corporate plans."

Ralph McGehee, 1999
