Fake News! How And Why It Occurred And What’s At Stake

Roots of Viral Fake News

The global Fake News cancer has its roots in a 1950s program titled “Operation Mockingbird,” a CIA program run at the behest of the US National Security Council. Op Mockingbird first entered public awareness when it was revealed in a 1979 biography of Washington Post owner Katherine Graham titled Katharine the Great.

“According to Davis, Operation Mockingbird was established by Frank Wisner, director of the Office of Policy Coordination, a covert operations unit created by the U.S. National Security Council.

“Wisner recruited Philip Graham from The Washington Post to run the project within the industry. According to Davis, “By the early 1950s, Wisner ‘owned’ respected members of The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles.”

“In 1951, Allen W. Dulles persuaded Cord Meyer to join the CIA. According to Deborah Davis (Katherine Graham’s biographer) Meyer became Mockingbird’s “principal operative.”

“After 1953, the media network was overseen by CIA Director Allen Dulles, by which time Operation Mockingbird had major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. The usual method was placing reports developed from intelligence provided by the CIA to cooperating or unwitting reporters. Those reports would be repeated or cited by the preceding reporters, which in turn would then be cited throughout the media wire services.” – Wikipedia (Operation Mockingbird)

How the fake news virus spread

The CIA inserted this false contagion into the most influential media networks run by publishers with “well-known liberal but pro-American big business and anti-Soviet views.” Publishers included “William S. Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington Post), Jerry O’Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham, Sr. (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor).” – Wikipedia (Operation Mockingbird)

Public relations propaganda, the brainchild of Edward Bernays

Bernays was an Austrian-American ‘public relations as propaganda’ pioneer. According to Wikipedia he “combined the ideas of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Sigmund Freud.”

Bernays believed “manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the “herd instinct.” Adam Curtis. . . pinpoints Bernays as the originator of modern public relations, and Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life magazine.” – Wikipedia

Propaganda Manipulates Belief Systems And Outcomes

Propaganda is “information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view”. Propaganda is often associated with the psychological mechanisms of influencing and altering the attitude of a population toward a specific cause, position or political agenda in an effort to form a consensus to a standard set of belief patterns.

“Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively (perhaps lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded messages or “loaded language” to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented. Propaganda is often associated with material prepared by governments, but activist groups and companies can also produce propaganda.”

So, why the merciless take down and smearing of Independent Media voices?

Fake news only works when all news outlets are centrally controlled and singing the same song in unison. Centralized control was the driving force behind the buying spree of six major corporations to capture all independent news channels in radio, television, and print media. It was done over a number of years to prevent detection of the information control structure being put in place.

Then the internet came along. In the beginning would-be global controllers perceived this as an even more perfect means of tracking global populations while profiting online. Their plan for total control of the 24-hour news cycle would have worked had the blogosphere and social media not appeared.

But they did. And before too long all the compartmentalized secrets hidden in government bureaucracies, research universities, and the minds of disenchanted establishment insiders began to be written about, discussed, and commented on via the new online media.

Where once there was only one coordinated, top-down, controlled stream of information there now appeared two streams, one powerfully positioned to deliver the bought-and-paid-for propaganda narrative and a second Independently supported and sourced narrative.

As the Independent media grew in strength and gained credibility the narratives collided. The problem facing the controllers was a huge one. It was all that cognitive dissonance being created by Independent media voices fact checking published news accounts and dissecting a mainstream narrative that clearly lacked truth and was frighteningly biased. It was inevitable that as these information streams collided in the US 2016 elections one narrative would be proved “fake” and the second “truth-based and factual.” Both could not be “real.”

Given the fact the clearly fake narrative was in actuality the one being spewed by the bought, infiltrated media conglomerates it became imperative for these true Fakes to label the Independent media “fake” and declare themselves the organs of “truth” and “factual news.”

And thus the war to inform the public began. You can read about how this has impacted Shift Frequency here, and what you can do personally to assist.

Until next time,
