‘A documentary film praising Syria’s White Helmets, a rescue group hailed as heroes and saviors by the MSM, amid allegations of having ties with terrorist organizations, has won the Oscar for best documentary short feature.

“The White Helmets,” a 40-minute documentary, marks first Oscar win for director Orlando von Einsiedel.

The film revolves around the “perilous work of volunteers who brave falling bombs to rescue civilians from the carnage of Syria’s civil war,” the description on its Netflix page says.

A synopsis, published on the Oscars website, reveals that the film is set “in the chaos of war-torn Syria” where “unarmed and neutral civilian volunteers known as ‘the white helmets’ comb through the rubble after bombings to rescue survivors.”

Patrick Henningsen, a geopolitical analyst at 21st Century Wire.com in an earlier interview to RT late last month explained how the footage was obtained.’

‘A free press guarantees a free country. Take it away, and a free country loses its voice, its courage, and its ability to function against government corruption.

President George Washington said, “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Government is like fire; it is a dangerous servant.”

Unfortunately, today in America our free press may be considered slanted, aristocratic, biased and prejudiced against bringing the unvarnished facts to the American people.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said, “It’s the media’s job to control how Americans think.”

As a citizen journalist who lives at the ground level of America, who has been a math-science teacher, 18-wheeler long haul trucker in the summers, bartender, heavy equipment safety officer, volunteer instructor for the handicapped and pool cleaner—I see the MSM manipulating the public “sway” by reporting stories they deem in their own best interest and not in favor of the American people.’

‘Bill O’Reilly and Fox News have been lambasted for providing fake news after interviewing a “Swedish Defense and National Security advisor,” in relation to Trump’s #LastNightInSweden gaffe, who no one had ever heard of.

Fox News host and controversial peddler of alternative facts Bill O’Reilly interviewed “Swedish Defense and National Security Adviser” Nils Bildt on Thursday, in an effort to back up the claims made about Sweden’s immigration in a Fox segment that is thought to have inspired Trump’s #lastnightinSweden comments.

Bildt dutifully echoed the claims made by Trump, claiming Swedish authorities were failing to socially integrate refugees, leading to a problem with “socially deviant activity” and “hotspots of crime.”’

‘The Guardian newspaper is a limited company and has been since 2008 when the Scott Trust was wound up and replaced by The Scott Trust Ltd, which appoints a board comprised of bankers, management consultants, venture capitalists and other classic left-wingers. The paper itself is written nearly exclusively by elite-educated members of the upper middle class. The viewpoint you would expect to come from this privileged set-up is what you do get.

Murray McDonald, in his Hidden History of the Guardian, explains that The Guardian was launched to undermine working-class leaders of the early 19th century reform movement (whose members were massacred at Peterloo), and during its 150 year history has denounced Ireland’s freedom fighters, Women Suffragettes, Abraham Lincoln’s campaign to end slavery, third world nationalism and pretty much any kind of genuine independence from the system.

It supported Tony Blair, even when the worst of his crimes were known and continues to give him uncritical space, it regularly presents official pronouncements as news, regularly disguises adverts for its corporate sponsors as news and regularly finds time to pour bile on Jeremy Corbyn, Julian Assange, Media Lens and Noam Chomsky, who was so appalled by Emma Brocke’s infamous and outrageous distortions he forced them to print a long retraction.’

‘Friday’s White House press briefing, normally an on-camera affair open to all reporters with press credentials, was turned into an exclusive event for certain outlets hand-picked by the administration.

The action came after President Trump on Friday described the media and what he terms “fake news” as “the enemy of the people.”On the list were Trump-friendly outlets such as Breitbart News, the Washington Times and OANN, a conservative television network that employs former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a commentator.

Off the list were some of Trump’s favorite targets, including the New York Times and CNN. The Los Angeles Times was also excluded.

The off-camera briefing with Sean Spicer, the press secretary, was not solely for conservative outlets. Several mainstream reporters were also allowed in, including the three major broadcast networks and wire services, such as Bloomberg News. Also allowed in were pool representatives who transmit news events to a far larger group of reporters.’

‘Journalists from the BBC, Reuters and New York Times were among those spied on by the German foreign intelligence service, according to reports.

Surveillance was allegedly carried out by the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) on at least 50 reporters since 1999.

Respected German magazine Der Spiegel reported the findings after obtaining BND documents listing journalists’ emails, faxes and telephone numbers.

The document reportedly showed more than a dozen BBC journalists were being monitored via numbers at the organisation’s London headquarters and in Afghanistan.’

Conservative activist James O’Keefe has warned that “this is the beginning of the end for the MSM” after releasing 119 hours of raw audio he claims is from CNN. The tapes were recorded by an anonymous source inside the organization in 2009, according to O’Keefe.’

The tapes are said to contain soundbites from current and previous CNN employees including Joe Sterling, Arthur Brice, and Nicky Robertson. O’Keefe is releasing the tapes under ‘Project Veritas’ in a series of WikiLeaks-style dumps.

O’Keefe is offering a reward of $10,000 to anyone who exposes media malfeasance on the tapes and has asked the public to help listen to the hours of recordings and transcribe their information.’

‘On Wednesday evening, the BBC programme hosted a panel debate between the politicians battling it out for the traditional Labour seat in Staffordshire.

As Labour MP Debbie Abrahams and Ukip’s deputy leader Peter Whittle clashed in heated exchanges about Stoke, one audience member accused politicians of having “no idea” what it is like to live outside of London.

Suggesting the metropolitan elite were failing to listen, she told the BBC panel: “I think politicians are completely disconnected with the people.’

‘The new BBC television drama, “SS-GB,” tells the fictional story of the Nazi occupation of Britain during the Second World War. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Len Deighton, the story ponders the dilemma faced by British police detective, Douglas Archer (played by Sam Riley), in working for his country’s fascist occupiers.

This is all fine as far as it goes. The problem comes with the drama’s depiction of a wartime alliance between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Such an alliance is established in the opening scene of the first episode in the context of a “German-Soviet friendship week” ceremony in London, involving the Nazis presenting a visiting Soviet delegation with a British spitfire fighter aircraft as a gift. Then, later, plumbing the depths of crudity, we see a large poster of Karl Marx hanging between two giant Swastika flags on a building in Nazi-occupied central London.’

‘Fascism is alive and well in the U.S., where a news reporter and meteorologist was recently fired from her job — not for poor performance or because she committed some type of crime, but simply because she supports the freedom of parents not to have to vaccinate their children, and because she questions the legitimacy of some of the science that backs the theory of man-made global warming.

Misha Michaels from WGBH in Boston was told by her bosses at the station that she “is not a good fit” after it was revealed that she had supported a legislative bill allowing parents to forego vaccinating their children. Michaels also posted information on her website contradicting the official narrative on man-made global warming, writing that she believes “strongly that politics has warped the scientific process and natural variation has a much stronger hand than humans do.”’
