For a very long time, "the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses" has been "an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of."
This secret government has been discussed by multiple politicians and presidents around the world for decades. The quote above comes from Edward Bernays (Propaganda 1928), and we talk about this "secret government" in a recent episode on CETV discussing the black budget. We provide multiple examples in there of the "invisible government" that owes "no allegiance" and acknowledges "no responsibility" to the people. (Roosevelt)
This article is about the censoring of opinion and information that's currently taking place. One of these 'fake news' watchdogs is NewsGuard, and they are aiming to hold independent media accountable for their stories. Funded by Clinton donors and big pharma, with ties to the CFR, NewsGuard seems to have a clear agenda in favour of mainstream media. You can read more about that story here.
This is exactly why we created CETV, because we've been demonetized on Youtube, and our other revenue streams have greatly decreased due to the massive amount of internet censorship that's taking place. The elite have labelled credible information as 'fake news,' and have decided to determine for the people what is real and what is fake. CETV is our platform to combat this censorship.
Since when does anybody have the right to censor information? Why can't the people be allowed to decide for themselves what's real and what's not by examining sources and doing their own research? Why should we give our minds away to the powerful people who are now determining what one can say, what one can't say, what's real, and what's not real?
This fake news effort is not really an attempt to vet the news, which has become clear to most. With this effort, the elite have exposed themselves even more by shutting down any information or narrative, no matter how credible, that seems to threaten specific political and corporate agenda's as well as profits. The voice of opposition has become extremely threatening, and as a result they are trying to shut down our ability to even question certain things like vaccine safety or genetically modified foods, for example.
