Flashback: Sensational Memos Lifted Lid on Fake News

CBS evening liesRecently I looked up an old friend and discovered to my delight that he is still alive and kicking. 
This is Walter Storch (aka Peter Stahl or Gregory Douglas?) of tbrnews.org (tbr stands for the Barnes Report.) He is still exposing the fake news mainstream media. I post his article from last Tuesday and one from 2003 by way of introducing him to you. He was a stalwart source of mine for many years but somehow fell off my radar about 10 years ago. His bonafides have been questioned by many but I find his work credible. He claimed to be the nephew of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Mueller and has published Mueller’s diary, CIA interrogation and many other revelations
Makow Comment– Isn’t it odd that the three US network TV newscasts are identical? That wouldn’t happen if CBS, NBC & ABC were independent. In fact, as Storch demonstrates below, the news is carefully controlled just like it was in the USSR. This has become painfully apparent in the media’s coverage of Trump. We live in a de facto Communist society where Communist is defined by the Illuminati Jewish bankers exercising a satanist monopoly over money, politics, culture and belief
Washington, D.C. February 28, 2017: “The news usually comes in clumps, great excitement, frenzies of supposition, abounding theories, creative fictions, waning interest, silence and then another round.
The American media is living under the misapprehension that they are the voice of the people whereas they are now nothing more than the vice of the people.
Once a determining factor in American social and political life, the media is now reduced to discussing new pizza restaurants, bad weather and heart warming stories about shabby minorities who have made great strides in new hairstyles.
Before the last presidential election, the media boosted the Clinton woman (?) and ignored a Trump that could never, ever win the election because they wouldn’t support him.
Trump won and the post-election wailings of the media would have deafened a tornado.
And when Trump entered the Oval Office, the media, like a pack of starving Chihuahuas, yapped and squeaked about him as if he had stepped on their food bowl.
Which, in essence, he had.
When Trump retaliated by booting the worse ones out of his press conferences, one would believe the Constitution was being burnt in public by a legion of hooded dwarves.
The media and its owners lost.
Get used to it.”

” Protestors are to be shown to be “die-hard Baathist supporters of the evil Saddam” and show pictures of a “commando” camp with pictures of Saddam and anti-US slogans.” (June 12)
Since April (2003), TBR News web site (www.tbrnews.org) has posted memos like this from an executive at a major TV network to selected News Division staff.
If they are authentic, these memos represent the most important revelation of government deception since the Pentagon Papers, and suggest the “news” is little more than mass psychological control. There are shocking references to cover-ups of government domestic terrorism, SARS, Mad Cow, and events in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, Iran and much more.
In mid-March TBR Webmaster Walter Storch received an email from a man who claimed to be a mid-level executive at a major U.S. TV network. He said he had “serious doubts” about the strict control of the media by the government.
He sent Storch a disc containing 1500 pages of memos dating back to 2001. All were on corporate stationery signed by the sender and recipients in the News Division.
Storch asked for current directives and was able to ascertain that they were followed both in print and on TV. He posted the memos in excerpt or in full and watched “as ordained news was created before our eyes.”
“We are now printing the more outrageous and serious aspects of the incoming papers with the hopes that this will cause serious public relations problems [for] those directly involved,” Storch wrote recently.
The memos so far have created a minor sensation. TBR news gets 3,000-10,000 viewers of this item per day, about half foreign. About 95% of the email response is positive while 5% are from government and press people who are “outraged by the implications. “
The memo writer is probably an executive at a media conglomerate in New York charged with coordinating with government. His directives seem to be followed by other networks and newspapers, although he refers to “unreliable” newspapers (June 2).
He decides what to suppress (“blackout”), what to promote (“puff pieces”), what angle to take on anything controversial. About SARS, which did spread to the US but was called pneumonia, he says,” Get the usual medical people and give them the usual script.” (May 25)
He has a cynical, conspiratorial, chatty style and makes the newsmen feel they are “in the know.” They do not include the public in this charmed circle.
