You can't have your CFR and eat it too!

Clinton blasts the US news media

Hillary Clinton, herself a CFR protégé, admitted openly that US mass media is substandard and American news networks do not broadcast real news! No doubt CFR members, Rockefeller, Rupert Murdoch and other media owners/magnates will be impressed over the remarks of ingrate Clinton. [It was the CFR that determined to marshal and shape the US mass media into what it is today.]

Morons, David Letterman and Paris Hilton, will they 'float?'
Morons, David Letterman and Paris Hilton, will they 'float?'

Clinton went on to state that the US is actually losing the "information war" -- everything is viewed as a 'war' by lunatic US politicians.

Given that 'patriotic' American media outlets have no choice but to spew transparent, infantile propaganda to their largely illiterate American audience what choice do the have? The user pays education system has created a nation of idiots and the same information can't be offered to local and international audiences.

What to do when media managers are faced with appealing to local morons, knowing that the rest of the world would consider that information facile and laughable?

Looks like the US administration has ANOTHER dilemma to add to the Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kosovo problems.

We could have spelled it out but most people in the US can barely put a coherent sentence together, so why bother, are you reading this Mr 'entitled' Letterman and other media MORONS -- how about a game of 'Will it Float' to stimulate the intellect?

The American ABC shot itself in the foot with the following news story: [you unpatriotic bastards.]

Hillary Clinton: Al Jazeera is 'Real News', U.S. Losing 'Information War'
by Kirit Radia

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear today that she is worried the United States is losing what she calls the “information war” abroad.

China and Russia, she says, have started English-language networks that push their message overseas and even the Taliban controls the airwaves in Afghanistan.

And in the Arab world? Al Jazeera is king, and Clinton says she can see why.

“Al Jazeera has been the leader in that are literally changing people’s minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective,” she said.

“In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners,” she added.

Clinton said that the US has dropped the ball since the Cold War, when VOA and others US broadcasts were influential.

“We have not really kept up with the times,” Clinton argued.

“We are in information war and we cannot assume that this youth bulge that exists not just in the middle east but in so many parts of the world really knows much about us. I mean we think they know us and reject us, I would argue the really don’t know very much about who we are,” she said, noting that America’s legacy of the Cold War, World War Two, and President Kennedy are lost on newer generations.

Clinton’s State Department has tried to keep up, especially on social media, where this year they have started Tweeting in Arabic, Farsi, and other languages. Secretary Clinton last week held a web chat with a popular Egyptian site that was able to gather 6,500 questions for her in just two days.

“We are really trying to play in that arena as best we can,” she said.

Endnote:
Could it be that most thinking people oppose brazen criminal activity and the almost daily murders of children and other innocent civilians committed by the US military and CIA -- surely offending innate justice and common decency couldn't have anything to do with losing the media war, could it? Maybe America's status as the WORLD'S LEADING TERRORIST NATION, has some bearing on the issue of LOSING in general, who knows? We'll just have to tune in to FOX 'news' and find out!

Losing
by bud Friday, Mar 4 2011, 9:36pm

The reason the U.S. is 'losing' is because its criminal activities are being exposed on every front.

But it was WikiLeaks that drove the stake through Washington's heart .. Julian Assange can derive some comfort from that fact.

However, it seems the GLOBAL digital community has taken offence over the brazen LIES and crimes committed by the USA and is determined to do something about it . Once the world decides, as has obviously occurred, the outcome is assured.

straight from the plutocrat's CFR mouth:

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.

It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years.

But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."
