The history of global covert interference by the @CIA is well known & documented. It cannot be the case that western commentators & editors are ignorant of its past activities. They also surely do not believe the CIA's tens of thousands now sit on their hands.
Is it credible that western mass media commentators & editors genuinely believe @CIA activity plays no significant part in recent events in Iraq, Libya & Syria & that any such activity is unworthy of comment/mention as a significant factor?
What is going on?
We are not aware of any sign that the @CIA acts in any different mode than in the past, namely as a covert arm of the US state in seeking to forward its global aims. The primary area of activity lately has clearly been in respect of sought for regime change.
The possibility of western MSM staffers believing the @CIA has desisted in its covert destabilizing activities globally is clearly unsustainable. So what other factors could be behind the absence of the CIA as a significant factor as reported in western MSM?
The @Guardian fell into line with the rest of western MSM in reflecting narratives favored by western states regarding areas of national interest. It appears to have been a financial decision more than one based on geopolitical factors though this is unclear.
9/11 was an incredibly significant event that inevitably brought western MSM into line w/ western states entities against a perceived common enemy. This is a factor which should not be ignored. But there are others which helped render the @CIA almost invisible.
Our conclusion is that the avoiding of any mention of @CIA interventions globally is a result of the combined effect of factors related above. A group thought agreement is clearly in place which delivers the partial picture we see daily in western mass media.
The sinister effect of a whole significant factor, namely the global activities of the @CIA cannot be underestimated. Much of public opinion in the west is rendered highly propagandized due to it & much more willing to give consent to regime change narratives.
