Trust the news

Sure, Brian Williams may not have been shot at, or seen any dead bodies, but when he tells you that vaccines are perfectly safe, the economy is growing, and Vladimir Putin is about to invade France, you can have absolute confidence that what he is saying is true:
On Wednesday night, the world we live in became a confusing and unfamiliar place and most of us wandered the land not knowing what to believe when Brian Williams admitted that he was never in a chopper that was hit by RPG fire in Iraq in 2003. Brian was actually safely traveling in a different chopper. How can we believe anything now that Brian Williams has dribbled out lies to us? When Brian Williams says, “Good evening, I’m Brian Williams and this is the Nighty News,” do we know for sure it’s the evening and that it’s a good evening and that his name really is Brian Williams? Is that picture of Brian Williams’ supposed bulge a picture of his actual bulge or did he just stuff his khakis with the sack he keeps his lies in? Everything is squint-worthy now!!!

After getting called out on the lie he told, Brian said in Wednesday night’s broadcast of the NBC Nightly News that he “misremembered” the whole thing. Here’s Brian Williams’ apology in case you missed it:

Since Brian Williams admitted to “misremembering” the events of that day in Iraq, the media has been digging up and looking for other possible lies told by Brian Will-lie. The New Orleans Advocate says that while reporting in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, Brian claimed to have seen a dead body floating in the French Quarter. But apparently, the French Quarter did not flood during Hurricane Katrina and remained pretty dry. Brian also claimed he got sick with dysentery after accidentally drinking floodwater, but a local health expert doesn’t remember anyone coming down with that shit. Basically, everything is a lie. Was Brian Williams even in New Orleans and Iraq? He was probably just reporting in front of a green screen. Has he even been in a helicopter? Riding in a helicopter while playing Call of Duty doesn’t count. Is Brian Williams real? Are we sure he’s not just a hologram made by NBC?

An NBC News source tells Page Six that he’s not going to be suspended or punished in any way.
Williams can't even tell the truth about things that he experienced directly. So why would you believe anything that he, or any other talking head, reads to you off a teleprompter?

It's ABC for ^%&$# sake. Left wing media and people would hold Williams to a higher standard?

He isn't going to get punished by NBC because 1.5 months ago, with their full knowledge of prior events he signed a contract extensions for 5 years, 10 million a year. So it would cost them $50 million to get rid of him.

There once was a fella named Brian,
He read us the news...but kept lyin'.
His close call in the chopper,
Was just one more whopper,
He's now on the hot seat - just a fryin'.

Bravo. It is quite telling that the focus is being placed on the lies that Williams has told about his own life rather than the much more significant lies that he and the rest of media tell day after day.

Also, NBC has known that WIlliams was lying for quite some time. They are only now reacting because they are afraid that people will start to question what else they and the rest of the big media may be lying about. If NBC actually valued truth they would have forced Williams to recant his lies and apologize long ago.

Paula Deen was upfront about certain words she said under oath and the media flips out. Brian Williams flat out lies, and all of a sudden, they want us to "let it go".

Saw where he lied about saving puppies as a volunteer firefighter. One time he said a puppy, a few years later he said two puppies. If he lies about inconsequential stuff like that, he has definitely lied routinely and steadily over the years about other things.

"Does anybody not on Social Security watch TV news?" - kudzu bob

I watch it from time to time just to see if they omitted major parts of stories. When the Ferguson liquor store robber was shot by a white cop the video was available to those on the right over a week earlier than it was for those on the left. I actually told people "did you not see the liquor store robbery video where he was beating up an Asians clerk, knocked him to the ground then walked away and charged back at him while the entire group of 'hands up' witnesses participated in the liquor store robbery, when lamestream didn't even show the video yet. So I watched lamestream news until they finally aired it when they edited out all the important parts, you didn't even see Gentle Mike lay a hand on the liquor store clerk or the hands up witnesses which had one of the witnesses lost his gold bracelet from the robbery to right next to the cop car on the ground..

Folks, it's wakey-wakey time. You can't be Sleepers forever... or you ain't getting raised up.

The MSM has been a tool of government (particularly, intelligence agencies) for half-a-century now. Nowhere is that control stricter than in television -- including commercials, PSA, and all the rest. Television, especially 'dramas' and other supposedly fictional elements, were and are part of the plan to 'fundamentally transform America' for many decades. Yet here we are, at the end of all things, and the Almighty People still believe teevee is just a group of independent companies and producers, and that content is not propaganda with sprinkles on top.

Stop clinging to evil things just because they entertain you and push your emotional buttons. That is their design, particularly in the mass-brainwashing of western females. Tell them they are Oppressed Victims, and that forcing others into second-class citizenship is righteous, necessary and empowering.

Intelligence elements don't have to control every person who appears on the boob-box. They only have to guide the overarching agenda, and make sure no mavericks are allowed air-time. (Note the emasculation of ALL male announcers during the NFL's recent fem-fest.)

Unknowing agents who further the Narrative/Agenda are even better than directly paid agents. The 'unknowing' retain an air of naivete and credibility that a practiced agent (like many highly placed government officials) cannot pull off.

It is not called Programming w/o reason, and if you imagine that's just 'conspiracy theory' -- so that you can happily go back to your favorite cop show etc -- then you are part of the problem. Part of Zombie Nation.

In support of the premise of this post and the last, that the media lies about everything - especially medical matters, is a large study, in Oxford's Journal of the National Cancer Institute, showing no link between second hand smoke and lung cancer, that has been vigorously ignored by the media because it is contrary to their social agenda.

I don't smoke, but this pisses me off. I just heard a doctor on television say that just smelling the smoke residue on someone's clothing can cause long term, irreversible, adverse health effects. I call bullshit. Prove it.

Anonymous Supernaut February 08, 2015 4:20 PM  

ray, I think you just about covered it all.

The tellavision uses it's cult of personality programming as one of it's most effective weapons of mass distraction, to hide the truth in plain site. The viewer addict gets so focused on the perfidy of the caricature of the OTHER SIDE, they fail to notice or care much about THEIR SIDE's perfidy and deception. Thus they all do their part to divide and conquer the viewing public's mind.

All of the so-called "Journalists, " "Reporters," and "Analysts," on every single channel on every single network, are lying liars, lying to promote the social engineering agenda. Right, left, conservative, liberal, republican, democrat, fundie, extremist or moderate, they all read their scripts and perform their parts to reinforce the upholding of the edifice of deceit and fear-driven behavorial programming of society.

If you don't know that that's already a given, it's probably safe to assume you watch too much TV.

I used to work with a guy who claimed to be a former Airborne Ranger, who I became convinced was a faker after he didn't know some extremely basic things, like his MOS code or what an M16 was. Still I couldn't be 100% certain that he was a faker, because he was unquestionably a moron.

I don't know, if I'm stuck with a stanky smoker for too long I feel the urge to beat the shit out of them, so there may be something to that study after all. Unless they say the adverse health affects have to be on your part.

Yes there is something to that study. That's the point. I think you've gotten mixed up somehow. The end goal is to incrementally acclimate everyone to the notion that children are the implicit wards of the state. Parents are just performing a service and if they don't do the job as prescribed by the state, they will, at a minimum be fired, possibly jailed, and new parents will be assigned the task.

It should be long past obvious that Western media are unrepentant propagandists, certainly not journalists.
Anything that advances the leftist narrative is permissible. To a leftist, lying is a point of personal pride.

The other side of the leftist mindset is that only those evil conservatives can be branded as hypocrites and liars, because their objective morality automatically leaves them wide open to such indefensible accusations.

In person Williams seems a nice enough guy. Friendly, soft spoken. Too soft spoken, I think. The several times I was around him he seemed on a double dose of Valium or, maybe, a bit of something else.
The news people are a driven, very liberal lot. Hard to work with sometimes. Unreasonable, often and, if they take a dislike to you, will lie, lie about your supposed faults with the hope of ruining your employment.
Funny, though, the sports end of each network were much more easy going and, usually, it was a reasonable experience. Now, the sports production folks were driven enough but not over the edge like the news divisions.
Why do these people feel they have to invent a career? You would think they would be smart enough to know it would catch up to them. Anyone remember Dan Rather?

I used to know a guy who claimed, in public and with a completely straight face to be at once an F-15 pilot, based in Japan (call sign "Panda-1"); an F1 racer; a computer programmer working on a secret AI project; and a couple of other things. In reality he was a very nice, normal-seeming person who actually helped me out on a couple of projects. Still, he would look you right in the eye and describe in great detail his life as a fighter pilot/race driver/AI programmer, and of course his hot Japanese girlfriend as well. I and his other friends learned to just play along. I never did figure it out.

@grey, sometimes it's the little incongruities that make people question the matrix and lead them to the point of taking the red pill. Plus, and make no mistake about this, Williams is important on the left. To us he's just another moronic talking head, but to them he's a high ranking commissar and leader in the fight against, well, YOU. There isn't a good analog on the right because we don't go in for the cults of personality to the same degree, but try to imagine how you'd feel if a Roissy was taken out of the fight by revelations that he was a gamma virgin living in his mom's basement. Anything that causes the left that much pain and dishearten them so much is worth doing.
