Something You Didn't See

Dec 18th, 2010

A pretty important post over at Say It Ain't So Already notes that lack of coverage the three major cable news outlets along with most major papers gave this:

"Washington Police arrested 135 of the protesters, in what is being called the largest mass detention in recent years. Among those arrested were Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst who used to provide the president’s daily briefings, Daniel Ellsberg, who released the government’s Pentagon Papers during the Nixon administration, and Chris Hedges, former war correspondent for the New York Times."

  1. Yes. There's a blackout, or at least a delayed media reaction, about dissent at home and facts that add up to losing this war.

    Perhaps MSM are going along with the White House and president's war narrative, which is that we're in this for the long haul no matter the cost to the American people.

    Could this sort of blackout be due to laziness? Hypnotic focus on the famous, rich and powerful? Fear of populist movements? Orwellian psyops?
