PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The most effective form of propaganda is that which delivers a constant meme over decades. The most glaring example is the content emitted over decades by such “news” outlets as the @BBC, @CNN & others working within the western mainstream.

#BBC #CNN
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Many, perhaps most of those working for the @BBC, @CNN & others within western mainstream “news” outlets are undoubtedly completely unaware at this point of the incessant & ingrained bias within them.

#BBC #CNN @BBCNewsnight @ABC @Channel4News @CNBC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The @BBC, @CNN & no doubt every single other western mainstream “news” outlet will claim to be impartial, solely interested in presenting a bias-neutral rendering of the news of the day. This is a totally spurious claim as we will see.

#BBC #CNN @ABC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Even a cursory examination of @BBC or @CNN “news” content or of any of their peers will reveal the subtle but incessant bias within it. It is primarily a case of skewed semantics. However, over decades this is an incredibly powerful tool of influence.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

This is not particularly conscious propaganda by the @BBC, @CNN or any of their peers. Neither is it self-censorship on their part. Except on the most subtle of levels. Noam Chomsky has described how this works in part here:

PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The constant flow of what we would claim are manipulative memes is completely on automatic pilot now after decade after decade of editorial influence which has semantically molded the in-house bias of the @BBC, @CNN & their peers.

#BBC #CNN @ABC @NBC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

As we all know so well, the @BBC, @CNN & their peers are western “news” outlets. Their output is patently oriented from a western perspective. This may seem natural, normal even, however they will still claim impartiality.

#BBC #CNN @Channel4News @AP
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Western mainstream “news” outlets cannot with any honesty claim impartiality unless the texts with which they relay news is neutral in every case. This is self-evidently not the case. Each & every article/broadcast contains its inherent western bias.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Why is this pernicious in regard to propaganda? If you accept the basis of our thesis this ought to be obvious. But take the example of how the @BBC, @CNN & their peers treat the handling of acts by the USA in regard to foreign policy.

#BBC #CNN @ABC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The US @StateDept & almost every US politician has a base concept of inherent US foreign policy goodness, that the USA only & ever attempts to do good in the world. On occasion they may admit to a “mistake” being made, this is as far as they will go.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

@BBC, @CNN & their peers reflect the above meme of inherent US state goodness in each & every article refering even remotely to the USA on foreign policy matters. Other states are treated quite differently. They are portrayed in a much harsher light.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

This extends to the average @BBC or @CNN reporter. As Noam Chomsky has pointed out, it is no accident that they are in the positions they hold. Any person holding views at interview which are contrary to this expected attitude are excluded.

#BBC #CNN
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

If the @StateDept makes a statement it is reported without anything remotely resembling skepticism. With #China, #Russia, #Iran, #Syria, #Cuba, #Venezuela or any entity not allied to the West then jaundiced interpretations inevitably occur.

@BBC @CNN
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Newsreaders for the @BBC & @CNN along with their textual colleagues deploy a host of means to initiate a feeling that only the USA & its allies are trustworthy in word & deed. And that those who are not within this club are not.

#BBC #CNN @ABC @NBC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

What means are effected by the @BBC, @CNN & their peers to effect populations long-term? What subtle means of framing the West positively? As said previously the US state & its representatives are treated differently from than those of other states.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The @BBC, @CNN & all others within western MSM voice a variety of opinions that serially downgrade the words/acts of states not within the western sphere of influence. Subtly skeptical views, opinions hinting at underhand practices or motivations etc.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The above is all an inside job as it occurs almost exclusively within the minds of those who work for the @BBC, @CNN or any of the other western mainstream “news” outlets. There is an unquestioned & unquestioning outlook of 'West is Best’.

#BBC #CNN
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The meme that western patrician power is wielded only for good reasons, for humanitarian purposes & to protect all countries globally w/ no intent other than these & with no self-interest involved, has been extremely powerfully projected for decades.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

This is the most insidious propaganda possible. It has groomed western publics & those of their allies to be accepting of the most egregious acts of mass murder in recent years. It has manufactured the necessary consent for state terrorism.

@BBC @CNN
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

As long as western mainstream media “news” continues to be read & watched by significant numbers & the subtle propaganda imbibed consciously & subconsciously western states will continue to engage in their acts of terror with impunity.

@BBC @CNN @ABC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Western “news" entities like the @BBC & @CNN will continue to staff their organizations with people who reflect the memes mentioned above. They will continue to condition their populations. There is no possibility of any change at this point in time.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Entities like the @BBC & @CNN can only maintain a hold over western populations & those of allies of the West if their subtle manipulations continue to remain unrecognized. The only hope lies in the increasing number turning away from them in disgust.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

We suffer daily from the aggression of the USA & its allies. The destruction, division, misery & mass slaughter they inflict are exposed more than at any previous time in history. It is long overdue that western MSM assistance to these crimes ended.
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

Every person of conscience ought to attempt the exposure of the inside job of mass propaganda by the means of western mainstream media & encourage the use of a much more diverse & ultimately more independent coverage online.

@BBC @CNN #BBC #CNN @ABC
PROPAGANDA | THE INSIDE JOB

The institutional myopia of western “news” entities like the @BBC & @CNN is their own worst enemy. People are turning away from their bias & constant partiality in disgust.

Ultimately the world’s verdict upon them will be harsh indeed.
