Who gets news where?

Filtering out veins of truth, making sense from a complex cascade of news stories. The Oligarchs of the Israeli/NATO power elite, the super-rich capitalist Mafia: their long-term strategems, their lies; and their downfall... Looking forward, with vision, to a just world in the future.

Who gets news where?

Post by commanderson »

hi there
I noticed someone mention that they no longer buy newspapers but use the net for news, am just curious where people might go online, especially for Scottish/ uk news, I use rense and infowars for the global events, but here I have noticed little of this angle taken upon the news, wondering if people have any useful online recources? Also if theres any uk based web radio shows worth listening to?

Propagandist drivel...

Post by spiv »

Apart from the UK Yahoo home page for news, which is mainly drivel, I look at Prisonplanet etc. But I rather like the articles at http://www.globalresearch.ca and also http://winterpatriot.blogspot.com

However, the truth of the matter is that I never buy any newspapers, and rarely watch the news on TV, other than maybe a few seconds of the headlines. I switch off the BBC as soon as it comes on, as it's pure propagandist drivel.

Dont forget, you can read every single paper online as well.
Times, Mail, Sun, etc
So why donate your money to these evil propaganda sheets - read them free of charge!

And i highly recommend watching movies and tv shows online too.
Never give another penny to Murdoch, Bronfman or any of the other media billionaires again.

I gets my "news" from as wide a source as possible, even sites clearly run by my enemies. I need to know what their angle is, and I quite enjoy seeing through their deception.

For my interest in Zionism, I scan Jerusalem Post and similar as they are often found reporting stuff that wouldn't get through in the West's media, such as the seismic shift running through the IDF following the beating they got in Lebanon in 06. Minerva tanks upended on the their barrels - hilarious.

They're much better against 12 year old schoolchildren throwing stones.

Not a news site as such, but for useful background on the general culture in the UK, you could do a lot worse than visit

http://www.tvgohome.com/

It hasn't been updated for a long time, and the archives frequently fall off the net, but I can almost promise that you won't regret taking a look.

On the other hand, not having visited for a few years, it seems dated to me now, in that it no longer looks as radical or extreme as it did four or five years ago.

Night night.

Legal Judicial Political Reformers

lots of the sort of stuff belowbelow

CROOKED MASONIC LAWYER JAILED FOR FLEECING THE DEAD
Pillar of society cheated his grieving clients out of £3m

PHILIP HUXTABLE was a respected family solicitor with his own practice and a pillar of his North Devon community. He was the clerk of his parish council, the president of the Rotary Club and the provincial grandmaster of Freemasons in the South West.

If anyone was to be trusted with the affairs of the recently bereaved, the families who retained his services believed it would be him. His clients, many of whose parents and grandparents had also retained his services, trusted him so much that he was able to steal up to £3 million of inheritances from them before anyone raised the alarm. Huxtable’s life of deceit came to an end when he was jailed for 3½ years in July 2005.

# Pillar of local life was a thief
# Masonic crooked lawyer charged clients £60,000 an hour
# MPs press for compensation

Webster Tarpley does a global roundup of the week on World Crisis Radio.
Saturdays 1:00pm-3:00pm Central Time

World Crisis Radio On Demand - stand by for big chunks of repetitive annoying US ads - I go and make a cup of tea when they're on.

Listen anytime you want day or night. On Demand is a continuous playback of the most recent broadcast. Now you can listen to your favorite programs 24 hours a day. New broadcasts start within 3 hours of the conclusion of airing live and continue to playback until the next days broadcast is posted.

http://gcnlive.com/Programs/WorldCrisis ... emand.html

Webster Tarpley: the most incisive critic of Anglo-American hegemony. As an activist historian he is best known for his book- George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992), a masterpiece of research which is still a must read. He is a 9/11 Truth Scholar and activist; AB Princeton 1966, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa; Fulbright Scholar at University of Turin, Italy; and MA in humanities from Skidmore College. He is fluent in Italian, German, French, Latin and Russian. A decades-long expert on international terrorism, his 1978 study for the Italian parliament "Chi ha ucciso Aldo Moro?"(Who Killed Aldo Moro?) broke open the ownership of the "Red Brigades" by NATO's clandestine "stay-behind" networks.

The Guardian newspaper and Channel 4 are my news "home", as much for their commentary as for the actual news, they're sort of a barometer of what is reaching the main stream and in general I trust their integrity.

My main interests are IT and identity cards so I read No2ID a lot and find the Register and similar sites useful.

I also use Google alerts for subjects of interest.
