Corbett Report: Crashes of Convenience and the Death of Michael Hastings

Hastings was the Rolling Stone reporter that got Gen. McCrystal fired. At about the 9 minute mark, in an interview with Cenk, Hastings describes how when he worked for Newsweek the editor would cut out any good stories that went against the grain of the typical MSM crap. He explains how the editors serve the establishment's agenda. That's why he went to work for Rolling Stone...so that he could get the real news out. It appears that got him killed.

Re: The MSM propaganda machine

Our fellow countrymen are being used like tools, families lied to, and abused once finally getting out. All for the war pigs that are getting rich off their blood. The MSM is complicit in this disgrace.

Pentagon faked arrival ceremonies honoring fallen soldiers



Quote:
The Pentagon has been holding phony “arrival” ceremonies for fallen soldiers at a base in Hawaii for over seven years, according to recent statements made by the United States Department of Defense to NBC News.

For nearly a decade, military personnel transported flag-draped coffins containing the bodies of troops killed in action from seemingly just-arrived cargo planes during ceremonies near hangar 35 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

In reality, however, the remains of those soldiers may have spent upwards of months in military custody before being paraded out during partially-fabricated ceremonial presentations carried out by the government’s Joint Prisoner of War Accounting Command, or JPAC.

Bill Dedman, an investigative reporter for NBC, said that the Pentagon confirmed this week “that no honored dead were in fact arriving, and that the planes used in the ceremonies often couldn't even fly but were towed into position.”

The Pentagon has since released a statement of its own clarifying the falsity of such events.

“These pre-planned ceremonies are symbolic in nature, with the purpose of honoring those Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice in support of our nation,” the Pentagon admitted.

“Part of the ceremony involves symbolically transferring the recovered remains from an aircraft to a vehicle for follow-on transportation to the lab. Many times, static aircraft are used for the ceremonies, as operational requirements dictate flight schedules and aircraft availability. This transfer symbolizes the arrival of our fallen service members. It is important to note that recovered remains ceremoniously transferred from the aircraft to the CIL vehicle have been in the lab undergoing forensic analysis to determine identity,” the statement continued.

World War II veteran Jesse Baker told Dedman that he attended at least 50 of the ceremonies, and always thought the bodies of his fellow servicemen were being saluted as soon as they returned on US soil from abroad.

"If I have been fooled, I am going to be a very pissed-off citizen, because I've been going for years," Baker said. "And I know a lot of guys who are going to be pissed off. ... They're out there honoring warriors."

Rick Stone, a former deputy chief with JPAC who spoke with Dedman for the NBC report, said the reality regarding the troops’ final arrival was much less sensational that the ceremonies suggest.

“When remains are brought back by JPAC staff, Stone said, they arrive from the airport in a plastic box in an employee's private vehicle, with no ceremony,” Dedman reported after meeting with him.

"It's an open fraud inside JPAC," Stone said of the ceremonies. "But it's more than just the arrival ceremony. The fraud is really their inability to bring closure to more families. Our noble mission is to go find some of these kids, and this thing is so fouled up we don't even recognize the mission."

Awesome. I've thought the same thing so many times when you read or listen to idiot reporters dutifully reporting, verbatim, the press release from some mega-corporation, government agency, or "watchdog group".

WTF? Why do we even have reporters?

Some of the best are those "50 states graded" on legislative efforts to save the people from mortal danger. Then, for a couple nights on the evening news, you hear the talking bobble-heads parrot the study, which scandalously graded Nebraska and Vermont "F" for dog grooming laws. ( 'Course, I made that one up. But now I'm thinking about putting out a press release.)

Re: The MSM propaganda machine

It is just a shame. We live in such a world of convenience that your average person either doesn't care enough or is to dumb to critically think for them self and just internalizes what ever garbage the MSM spoon feeds them. I feel like it is a major reason why Americans are so at odds with one another and the rest of the world. It is all courtesy of mega-corporations and the government taking over what people think is their own free-will and opinion.

We can have our disagreements on things but at least I know the majority of people here base their opinions off a valid personal argument or concern and not off a haphazardly strewn together "he said she said" story meant to incite partisan tension and increase viewers.

Re: The MSM propaganda machine

Although humorous, I'm not sure how it fits here very well. This thread is about the deliberate attempt to mislead the public. It's not about lazy journalists.

Re: The MSM propaganda machine

CNN paid by US and foreign governments to control content - Emmy winning reporter blows the whistle

Quote:

"CNN is paid by the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. The Obama Administration pays CNN for content control.

Let that sink in.

Additionally CNN and CNN International are also paid by foreign governments to avoid stories that are damaging, and construct narratives that show them in a better, albeit false, light.

Amber Lyon is a three-time Emmy winning investigative journalist and photographer. She accuses CNN of being “fake news.”

Back in March 2011, CNN sent a four person team to Bahrain to cover the Arab Spring. Once there, the crew was the subject of extreme intimidation amongst other things, but they were able to record some fantastic footage."...

Re: The MSM propaganda machine

This is quite peculiar. This is the story about the house stenographer. The facts from the MSM doesn't match the story. Furthermore, the actual video footage IS rather bizarre.
