October 2004: POISON PRESS: How the Big MediaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs death throes are heralding a revolution in journalism
The scandalous pre-election hucksterism of CBS News and other ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«big mediaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ organizations ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å their usual facade of objectivity worn thin by their zeal to elect John Kerry ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å doesnÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇt even begin to reveal their monumentally destructive influence on America, according to the newest edition of WNDÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, titled ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«POISON PRESS.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«This amazing issue on the news media literally begins where other exposes of the press leave off,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ said Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WorldNetDaily and Whistleblower.
That starting point, of course, is that the ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«mainstream pressÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ is very far out of the mainstream. In fact, a poll of 153 national journalists at the Democratic convention showed three times as many supporting Kerry for president as Bush, while the 50 or so Washington-based journalists surveyed favored Kerry over Bush 12 to one.
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«However,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ said David Kupelian, managing editor of WND and Whistleblower, ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«this issue of Whistleblower is not about how the press is too ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥biasedÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ or ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥liberalÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ or ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥left-wing.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ ThatÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs old news ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å very old.
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«What this Whistleblower issue does is document how the ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥old mediaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ are literally the creators and sustainers of what many Americans perceive as reality, very much like the malevolent computer program in ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥The MatrixÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ film trilogy.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´
That is, the issue reveals dramatically how, in issue after issue ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å the presidential race, the Middle East conflict, abortion, ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«gay rights,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ the terror war and others ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å the ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«virtual realityÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ created in the publicÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs mind by the establishment media is profoundly and provably at odds with reality.
Much has been made of the CBS News scandal in which Dan Rather and that networkÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs executives stonewalled the entire world ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å even the rest of the press ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÌ´å defending the obviously bogus documents Rather and ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«60 MinutesÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ had featured for the intended purpose of bringing down a U.S. president.
"But that was just the time they got caught,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ said Kupelian. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«What about the other thousands of news stories that form the fabric of confusion, cover-up and deceit that passes for ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥political analysisÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ in the establishment press?ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«POISON PRESSÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ unplugs the media matrix program and helps readers view the world through fresh eyes, and not those of agenda-driven manipulators in the major media.
But thatÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs only part of whatÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs contained in this special Whistleblower edition dedicated to the news media.
Fortunately, ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«POISON PRESSÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ also documents conclusively that the ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«Old MediaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇsÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ decades-long monopoly on the news is slowly but inexorably coming to an end. At the same time, the inspiring present and awesome future of the Internet-based New Media is laid out as never before.
