Arkin recently blasted NBC News along with MSNBC news in an email for “becoming captive and subservient to the national security state, reflexively pro-war in the name of stopping President Donald Trump, and now the prime propaganda instrument of the War Machine’s promotion of militarism and imperialism.”
Thanks to the collapse of the Russian collusion hoax, relentlessly pushed by mainstream media for the last three years, millions of ordinary Americans are slowly waking up to the fact the mainstream media does not always tell the truth.
But the lies did not begin with the concocted theory that President Trump was colluding with the Kremlin. The mainstream media has always pushed disinformation on behalf of shady government agencies with the purpose of manipulating society. It’s why the mainstream networks were created in the first place.
According to William Arkin, the spooks in the mainstream media are in a stronger position than ever before. Indeed, “the national security establishment not only hasn’t issued a beat but indeed has gained dangerous strength,” and “is ever more autonomous and practically impervious to criticism.”
Another great quote comes to mind here,
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . . [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” (source)– Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925
CollectiveEvolution reports: Arkin has worked with NBC and MSNBC since 2016, and it’s great to see that he’s leaving due to the fact that these outlets have become nothing but the “central propaganda arm of the CIA, the Pentagon, and the FBI.”
This network alone consists of former CIA, NSA and Pentagon officials as news analysts. MSNBC host and former Bush-Cheney Communications Director Nicole Wallace is one of multiple great examples.
