THE INVISIBLE MEN

The vast army of men & women of the @CIA & the activities they carry out in conflict-ridden areas of the world are rendered almost completely invisible by western mass media. This indicates myopia, amnesia or malign intent on a massive scale.

@CNN @BBC @NBC
THE INVISIBLE MEN

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.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

What might be the reasons behind the extremely relevant factor of @CIA activity being so little reported in western press & media as to be almost totally absent? What factors could explain this absence? What beliefs or motivations?

@CNN @BBC @NBC @NYTimes @CBS
THE INVISIBLE MEN

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?
THE INVISIBLE MEN

Let us be generous & assume that the commentators & editors within western mass media are simply unaware of the past history of the @CIA or consider any activities they may be engaged in as largely insignificant & having minimal effect.

@CNN @BBC @NYTimes @NBC
THE INVISIBLE MEN

Is this sustainable as a reason for @CIA absence as a factor in reporting of global crises in western MSM? What basis could there be in a view that the #CIA no longer acts as it has done in the past? Has there been some edict from the US state that this is so?
THE INVISIBLE MEN

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 INVISIBLE MEN

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 INVISIBLE MEN

If the historical record is consulted it can be seen that the @CIA was reported upon as a significant factor in world events within western mass media in times past, notably in articles published by the @Guardian in the United Kingdom.

THE INVISIBLE MEN

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.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

If we look back a few decades it can be seen that in the USA certain major newspapers did feature articles sheding light on the shady activities of the @CIA & US state. This is by & large no longer the case to any significant degree. @WashingtonPost @NYTimes
THE INVISIBLE MEN

Something changed somewhere between the @Guardian @WashingtonPost & @NYTimes publishing articles critical of the @CIA & US state & their almost complete absence currently.

What events may have brought about this change?

@CNN @BBC @NBC @FoxNews @Channel4News
THE INVISIBLE MEN

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.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

The availability of current event news on the internet began to pose a serious threat to western MSM from the Nineties onward. Income flow of western mass media entities were at threat & were surely beginning to dwindle. This is one factor surely involved here.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

Corporations began to take over in the US media field as their income flows became ever more under threat from the internet. The resulting change in programming, whether conscious or unconscious has without doubt been a factor.

@CNN @NBC @ABC @CNBC @MSNBC @CBS
THE INVISIBLE MEN

We should also consider the effect of embedding reporters within US army forces in Afghanistan & Iraq plus the increasingly intimate contacts between the military/intel elites of the US state & that of western mass media entities.

@CNN @BBC @NBC @MSNBC @CBS
THE INVISIBLE MEN

The @CIA & its activities have been rendered largely invisible when it comes to an examination of events in crisis-torn nations globally in recent decades. Western mass media largely reflects a regime change positive view on US state targets.

@CNN @BBC @NMSNBC
THE INVISIBLE MEN

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 INVISIBLE MEN

The effects of a near completely partial, one-sided reporting of crises in nations where the US state & its allies seek a change in governance is no accident. It cannot be other than by intent. Those within western mass media are hardly blind or unintelligent.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

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.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

The 10s of 1000s working for the @CIA work 24/7 generating a flow of disinformation deemed necessary to effect regime chage in nations where the US state has national interests. That this is unreported speaks volumes for the current state of western MSM.

@CNN
THE INVISIBLE MEN

In the past westerners have relied on MSM to report the excesses of intel agencies & those of its controllers. Past experience has shown how necessary such oversight has been. Now none of this is taking place or if so is attacked as unpatriotic or treasonous.
THE INVISIBLE MEN

If the present situation continues nations of the West & its allies risk an ever-increasing movement toward totalitarian systems where every aspect of life is monitored, where war is constantly fomented & propaganda distributed as fact... all invisible to view.
