Wake Up, You Live in The Matrix #4 - Corporate and Grassroots Media are Manipulated

Here is a great 10-minute talk by Sharyl Atkisson, one of the few mainstream journalists I admire and who unreservedly pursues the truth:

Astroturf and manipulation of media messages, Sharyl Attkisson, TEDx UniversityofNevada

We know the corporate media is corrupt and controlled, but Atkisson describes the sophisticated methods that the establishment uses to manipulate the masses with nonprofits, professional societies and the Internet. It is troubling. 

The Whole World in the Power of the Evil One

About a year and half ago I began to wake up to the full extent of deception in the institutions we are taught to trust, like government, academia, corporations and media. It was a rude awakening and overwhelming at times. The further down the rabbit hole I went, the more massive and sinister the lies became. However, after seeing through the deception, the world began to make sense when it didn't before. In that way it was liberating.

For instance, I saw the Democrat vs. Republican, left vs. right political paradigm is a deception. It is designed to engage the public in a false, hopeless drama while the power elite control the core of both parties, advancing their agenda incrementally. I realized the solution to our problem wasn't to be found in national politics.

Eventually I reached the bottom of the rabbit hole and found myself face to face with the devil himself, or at least his work in the world. This isn't surprising if you take the Scriptures at face value. 

"...the whole world lies in the power of the evil one." - 1 John 5:19

"...the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving..." - 2 Corinthians 4:4

Satan isn't a metaphor or abstraction. He is in fact a powerful and highly intelligent angelic entity - a cherub to be specific. He is the "god" (with a lower case g) of this age and the whole world is under his sway. The angels who followed Satan in rebellion against God are just as real. They are inter-dimensional beings who interfere with and exert control over the affairs of men. In the ancient world, these beings posed as gods for men to worship. Where do you think the pantheon of Greek gods came from ? Or ancient Egyptian or Babylonian gods? Or Mayan and Aztek gods? These weren't simply products of the fertile imaginations of men. These were actual beings who offered worldly power, wealth and pleasure in exchange for worship and moral corruption. 

These days, fallen angels like to pass themselves off as visitors from other galaxies. By that I mean aliens. But that's a topic for another time.

If Scriptures say the whole world lies in the power of the evil one, is it surprising that the media establishment has been co-opted for propaganda and disinformation? If Satan is the father of lies who blinds the minds of the unbelieving, doesn't it make sense that he uses a matrix of deception to manipulate and enslave? If Satan masquerades as an angel of light, isn't his best deception to appear good while selling a huge lie?

However, many assume that worldly institutions and conventional wisdom are truthful and good, unless clearly and obviously shown otherwise. I'm afraid this is naive. Christians should be more skeptical and discerning. Jesus said, "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves." Jesus wants his children to be as shrewd as the devil, while walking uprightly. So it's important to do our homework and think for ourselves to get at the truth

Otherwise we're going to get played. And these days the stakes are high.

The Media Good Guys

Below is a list of the sources of news, information and analysis that I believe are credible and worthwhile. Please note I am not saying everything these sources say are always correct. Exercise your own judgment and discernment. But they are genuine seekers of truth.

The last two I would say are sort of half mainstream and half alternative, but still offer much good information.

WARNING: These sources are constantly being hacked and attacked by certain agencies and entities. They receive death threats. The time is soon coming when these sources will no longer be available. At some point, the Internet will be censored or completely shut down. So get up to speed now. Your window of opportunity is short.

The Media Bad Guys

Below is a list of the corporate controlled, government propaganda, bought-and-paid-for, matrix of deception media shills.

  • ABC (Already Been Chewed)
  • NBC (Nothing But Crap)
  • CBS (Can't Believe this Stuff) 
  • CNN (CIA News Network)
  • Fox News (The Best Conservatives Money Can Buy)
  • The New York Times 
  • Washington Post
  • The Wall Street Journal (The War Street Journal)
  • The Economist 
  • Glenn Beck (Pretends to be alternative media, but is sold out)
  • Every local network news show
  • Every local mainstream newspaper, most of which are owned by corporate conglomerates

I'm sorry, but if you get your information from these sources, you cannot possibly understand what is happening in the world. The truth is being systematically kept from you.

Remember, the best lie is a partial truth. A story can be 95% true, but that last 5% is what pushes you down the wrong path. Or the news outlets give you 80% of the least important stories, while withholding the 20% that is absolutely essential. It all amounts to deception.
