Our Mainstream Commercial News Media and the 'Mighty Wurlitzer' Propaganda Operation

 If you're like me, you've probably been seeing these articles too. Not just on China though — I've been seeing it on Russia too. The following story should at the very least cause one to take such stories with a grain of salt. Especially when the 1st thing our  governments do time and time again against one they've determined to be a political foe is to demonize them. Please bear this in mind, especially when our commercial main stream media talks about the Uyghur “issue” in China. The following is excerpted from the 'Moon of Alabama' political blog.

The 'Mighty Wurlitzer' - How U.S. Financed 'Human Rights' Organizations Create Anti-Chinese Headlines

During my daily skimming of the main stream media I at times detect news items that seem of little public interest but are widely published. These pieces are often suspiciously similar to each other and seem to come from the 'Mighty Wurlitzer':

In 1967 the magazine "Ramparts" ran an expose revealing that the Central Intelligence Agency had been secretly funding and managing a wide range of citizen front groups intended to counter communist influence around the world.
...
CIA official Frank Wisner called the operation his "mighty Wurlitzer," on which he could play any propaganda tune.

Today's 'Mighty Wurlitzer' song is played simultaneously by all major outlets:

A Prime Example of What Socialism is, Explained by a Southerner

 This young lady who I presume is American and from the Southern US, explains succinctly what Socialism is and how it's the American Way. It's only the 1% who want us to think it's evil — for obviously selfish reasons. Hat-Tip to Ms. Illan Omar for finding this gem.

Firefights Break Out Between India and Pakistan, according to some reports [Video's]

 I'm posting this on my blog, because both Twitter & Reddit have censored SouthFront. Personally speaking I haven't found any evidence of false reportage by this news-site, and quite frankly I find it disturbing that they are in fact censored.

It seems the only reason is that they don't follow the official western narrative. However, we at Slacktivism is about exposing the double standard our governments practise in the name of “Democracy”. Doesn't the voting public deserve to know what our governments are doing in our names? I think so — even if the truth is embarrassing or exposes hidden truths. We need more truth to power!


At least 11 people were killed and 30 others were injured in a recent exchange of strikes between Pakistan and India in the disputed Kashmir region.

The Pakistani Armed Forces and government blamed India for initiating clashes by firing rockets and mortar shells that killed 5 Pakistani civilians and wounded 27 others on November 12 and 13. The Pakistani side described the attack as ‘unprovoked incident of cease-fire violations’ and said that Pakistani troops responded by targeting the Indian posts.

The Indian military said three of its soldiers were killed and three others were wounded. Three Indian civilians were also killed by Pakistani shelling. The Indian side says that it acted in response to Pakistani shelling and actions of Pakistani sabotage groups.

The situation in the area remains tense but there are no indications of any offenisve preparations by any side. View video's

UK Government Report Refutes Journalist & Insider on Cambridge Analytica "Shenanigans" & "RussiaGate"

Some excellent reportage from the Grayzone's Alexander Rubinstein. There are many quotes that I could have gladly pasted here, but this one struck me as the best summary of the entire story:

“The ICO has conducted a reverse engineering exercise to try to identify and confirm as far as possible, how SCL/CA processed the personal data they held… my findings were also informed and corroborated based on accounts obtained from witness interviews and the contents of statements taken during the investigation,” Denham said.

The methodically detailed investigation’s findings were a damning commentary on the Western media that opportunistically painted SCL-Cambridge Analytica as a batcave command center for Putin and the Bannonite far-right.
Please read the entire article, even if you believe(d) that the RussiaGate conspiracy was true. These are crazy times and journalism like this is important more than ever!
