There is NO #FreePress in the West.
There is only Establishment sycophancy and lies.
The Corporate media is owned & controlled by the Oligarchs.

Actual Truth Tellers are fired, blacklisted, censored, smeared and jailed.
M$M doesn't want any Truth.

The secret of successful propaganda is to have seemingly diverse media all telling the same lies - Joseph Goebbels

There is NO #FreePress in the West - there is only organized propaganda and lies.
Successful propaganda relies on endlessly repeating the same short phrases and slogans until they become "Truth" - Joseph Goebbels.

There is NO #FreePress in the West - there is only organized propaganda and lies.

Press freedom is under assault across the globe—including in the US. As journalists fight to advance truth and objectivity, far too many governments and non-state actors are targeting them. #WorldPressFreedomDay
In Slovakia, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia, journalists have been recently killed in retaliation for spreading news and information.

Others have been imprisoned in Burma, Nicaragua, and around the world. #WorldPressFreedomDay
From Turkey to the Philippines, Venezuela to Sudan, governments around the world are trying to silence the press. But the threat to press freedom isn’t limited to foreign lands—it’s something we’ve had to increasingly contend with here in the U.S. #WorldPressFreedomDay

Friendly advice from the New York Times: How to carry out a coup…
This article is pure gold propaganda. "We tend to think of coups as driven by angry protesters or rogue officers. But, in practice, they are almost always brought about by the country’s dominant political, military and business elite."
"Those power brokers, after all, have the final say over whether a leader stays or goes. But they can only remove a leader if they act together—making any coup what Singh, a leader scholar of coups, called a 'coordination game.'" I wonder how one becomes a scholar of coups?

#THREAD: Good journalism isn't cheap.

On #WorldPressFreedomDay, do your bit to support independent media.

Here's a list of media organisations in India that you can support 👇🏽
1. @scroll_in: Because to speak truth to power, journalists don’t need to be loud, they just need to be firm.…

(Disclaimer: I work for Scroll)
2. @thewire_in: If good journalism is to survive and thrive, it can only do so by being both editorially and financially independent.

We’re excited to announce the launch of #HerStory, Twitter’s new, monthly original video series highlighting the work and personal stories of women journalists around the world. Here’s a sneak peak:

Women journalists are essential to the storytelling landscape, and far too often face obstacles while doing their jobs that their male counterparts do not.
We need to highlight this gender inequality as often as possible, but especially on #WorldPressFreedomDay, when so many are celebrating journalism and the indispensable work that reporters do for society.

The fifth and final freelancer in this week’s #WorldPressFreedomDay series is journalist & photographer Sally Hayden from Ireland, who currently focuses on migration, conflict and humanitarian crises. Here she is photographed [left] while reporting in Burkina Faso in 2014
The photo above was taken by Matus Krcmarik. Across the day we'll be sharing pictures & insights from Sally that give glimpses of her experiences as a #freelancer working internationally. Follow this thread!
"I took this in eastern #Sudan, close to the border with Eritrea, where I met teenagers & children who had fled compulsory, indefinite military service,” Sally said. “This was one of the few times I brought a fixer, as it's impossible to travel alone as a foreign woman in Sudan.”

Day 3 of our #WorldPressFreedomDay series on the working lives of #freelancers worldwide - today we're sharing insights from freelance investigative journalist Mabvuto Banda, who lives and works in Malawi. Follow this thread across the day to hear about his experiences
The climate for journalists in #Malawi has improved over the last 15 years. Nonetheless Mabvuto has been arrested on numerous occasions during his twenty-year career in #journalism. In Malawi, a law still provides for the imprisonment of anyone who 'insults' the head of state.
Mabvuto said of the photo above: “This is me with reporters in the #newsroom. We were working on a story about the growing calls within the ruling party to push the current President to stand down." [1/2]

For the second day of our #WPFD18 series exploring behind the scenes of freelancers at work in regions across the world, we'll be sharing insights from freelance photographer César Rodríguez in Mexico - a country that ranks 147th of 180 on @RSF_inter's World Press Freedom Index
Freelancer César Rodríguez was born in the western Mexican state of Nayarit, where he took this photo: “This was in a living room in a house in Tepic, Nayarit, where a clash between armed civilians and the navy took place." [1/2]
"At least five people died, and it’s believed that other armed civilians escaped. I chose this image because when I see it, it reminds me of places where people are at war – "official" wars – and it reminds me that here in #Mexico we have our own war as well.” [2/2]
