Controversial hidden camera programme reveals Tunisian links with Israel

A private Tunisian TV channel has gone ahead with the broadcast of a controversial hidden camera exposé programme. “Shalom” tackles the issue of normalisation with the Israeli occupation, Quds Press has reported.

Tunisna Channel explained that the programme shows a scenario whereby a politician or public figure is supposedly invited for an interview with CNN. It turns out, though, that the “interviewer” is actually an Israeli official offering the guest the opportunity to deal with Israel in exchange for financial and political support.

According to producer Walid Zribi, the “guests” have been putting pressure on Tunisna not to broadcast “Shalom”. The media expert explained that the programme “aims to expose Tunisian political figures who are willing to deal with Israel.”

MSNBC libs: ‘President radically demanded an unpredicated investigation while he’s under investigation and should be impeached’

MSNBC-backed liberals Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski put in work for their deep state masters Monday as they spewed agitprop like banshees over President Donald Trump recent demands for an investigation into an alleged FBI/DOJ spy plot which may have infiltrated the Trump Campaign during the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election.

BEX ALERT - Bill Maher and Bari Weiss Cruelly Blame Palestinians for Gaza Massacre

During the embassy opening, a taunting event all but designed to inflame tensions, Israeli forces brutally massacred at least 58 Palestinians protesting along the Gaza border—including women and children. Many were killed by sniper fire hundreds of yards away. Weiss, however, saw no connection between the protests and the embassy launch.

“Bill, I love you, but the riots were not caused by the embassy move,” said Weiss. “They’re not linked. When Hamas attacked Israel in 2008, when Hamas attacked Israel in 2012, when it attacked Israel in 2014, the embassy was in Tel Aviv all of those times… They intentionally moved up the day so that it would coincide with the day of the embassy move so that we would all be disgusted and heartbroken when we saw this horrible split-screen of Ivanka Trump, looking like she was at a country club, next to poor, desperate people dying in Gaza.”

“I agree with you,” Maher replied. “They planned that. Absolutely.”

'Meghan Markle could be Queen... after tragedy' – US journalist makes SHOCKING claim

Speaking on the US Today programme, journalist Megyn Kelly outlined the macabre chain of events which would see Ms Markle become the Monarch.

She said: “The question is whether we could have an American Queen someday.

“The truth is, in order for her to become queen, a lot of hideous and tragic things have to happen.”

Co-host Al Roker interrupted, shouting: “Thanks for bringing that up. Oh, what a happy day it is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Megyn Kelly just set a new low for American corporate media.

Essential history to understand the present: Lie-started and illegal wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, rhetoric for war on Iran

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The following is my first white paper on the US so-called War on Terror, prompted by the Bush-regime's lies becoming so numerous that I needed to document them because I could no longer remember all of them while teaching high school government and history classes. I began this paper in 2005, updated until 2009, and offer more recent but less extensive versions here and here.

‘Bomb Putin bridge’ journo thinks he’s trolling Moscow with jail comments… but there’s a catch

The story, however, took a bizarre twist on Thursday, when Rogan said on Twitter that Ukraine’s foreign minister had contacted him to express the support of his people and offer protection from Russian law enforcement.

Had a great conversation with @MFA_Ukraine minister Pavlo Klimkin just now. He said the Ukrainian people supported my piece and that Ukraine would help me if Russia tries to send me to the Black Dolphin. Some good banter.

— Tom Rogan (@TomRtweets) May 17, 2018
The minister, Pavlo Klimkin, then responded by saying he never spoke to Rogan, adding that his article “isn’t worth commenting” on and that the entire story may be “another Russia-led provocation.” The bold effort to amplify a new fictional Putin threat was utterly wasted, it seems.

To ‘protect democracy,’ scandal-fearing Facebook teams up with ‘unbiased’ Atlantic Council

Would you like a think tank advocating acts of terrorism, war and suppression of the media working with Facebook to protect democracy and elections worldwide? If so, great news!

Facebook is “excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems,” Katie Harbath, Facebook’s director for global politics and government outreach, announced on Thursday.

“Experts” from the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRL) will work closely with Facebook’s “security, policy and product teams” to offer “real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world,” Harbath added.

How Israel helped create Hamas

Controlled Opposition.

Hamas launched in 1988 in Gaza at the time of the first intifada, or uprising, with a charter now infamous for its anti-Semitism and its refusal to accept the existence of the Israeli state. But for more than a decade prior, Israeli authorities actively enabled its rise.

Passive media whitewash Israel’s massacre in Gaza

As Israel slaughtered dozens of unarmed Palestinians in Gaza this week, prominent media outlets employed innocuous headlines to obscure the horrific reality.

In the video above, RT correspondent Anya Parampil points to some examples of what she calls “an almost across the board obfuscation of Israel’s responsibility for the violence.”

A BBC headline read for instance, “Gaza’s deadliest day of violence in years,” while The Guardian ran with “Fatal clashes in Gaza after opening of US embassy.”

The word “clashes,” Parampil observes, “would lead you to believe there are casualties or injuries on the Israeli side.”

In fact after seven weeks in which Israel has killed some 100 Palestinians and injured 12,600 others, Israel has reported one minor injury to a soldier.

Ratings Crisis: CNN Suffers Viewership Collapse of Nearly 30 Percent

Last week, during the all-important primetime hours, CNN was only able to average 844K total viewers. During this same week last year, CNN averaged 1.191 million. That is a -29 percent collapse.

CNN’s average total day viewers disintegrated by -25 percent, 841K compared to 635K.

In other words, throughout the day last week, CNN could only attract an average of 635,000 total viewers.

Peers defeat government by backing resurrection of inquiry into press behaviour

The government has been defeated in the House of Lords as peers backed a new Leveson inquiry into the behaviour of the press by 252 votes to 213.

The outcome puts the unelected chamber on course for a constitutional clash with the Commons, which had previously rejected a demand for a further investigation into the relationship between the media and police.

The amendment would force the government to establish a new inquiry into allegations of data protection breaches by national news publishers.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg agrees to meet senior EU politicians over concerns about company's practices

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to travel to Brussels to meet with senior European Parliament politicians behind closed doors to address their concerns about his company’s handling of personal data.

MEPs have long wanted to question the Silicon Valley CEO about Facebook’s data practices, with a particular interest in how the social network’s advert targeting might be affecting elections.

Mr Zuckerberg is expected to visit the EU capital as early as next week, though no specific date for his trip has yet been announced. He will meet with the leaders of the Parliament’s political groups, the so-called conference of presidents.

BBC’s ‘mindless’ late night Royal Wedding push notification pushes some over the edge

The BBC has annoyed the hell out of the Royal wedding weary public with a late-night push notification to alert the world that the bride’s father might/might not attend. For many, it was one too far.

Exasperated by the corporation’s perennial effort to keep them updated on all things Megs-and-Harry, Britons have taken to Reddit to air their grievances.

“It is not acceptable to ping the entire nation (who have it installed) at 9:30pm to tell them that someones (sic) father might not attend a wedding,” Reddit user Purpose2 complained. “This is an abuse of the trust that we place in you.”

Google: Christianity Must Be Censored

After their ads were rejected, CPH contacted Google and was told “remarketing ads based on religious beliefs was not allowed.” CPH then requested a manager review this decision, which was denied, and were told the only way to bring the ads “into compliance” was to remove all “faith-based content.”

Soon after, a Google AdWords representative explained, “the disapproval resulted from the fact that the items in the ad and on the CPH website refer to Jesus and/or the Bible.” If CPH removed all references to Jesus or the Bible, their ads would be reinstated.

Kintz wasn’t amused.

Media obsessed with Trump as solution to failing business model - New York Times columnist

Nicholas Kristof, a prominent columnist for the New York Times, has warned that the media’s obsessive focus on President Donald Trump means they are failing to cover other important stories.

Kristof lamented the “all Trump, all the time” nature of the US media since Trump took office. "We have to acknowledge that there is so much more happening in the world than Donald Trump,” he told CNN host Brian Stelter.

From child hooligans to 'canine KGB death squads’: UK media launches usual Russia World Cup takedown

As the World Cup looms, the UK media is ready with an axe to grind. No matter how insignificant an issue with anything remotely linked to Russia, it will be reported as if it’s the end of the world, just like the Sochi Olympics.

Journalists are already cherry picking the grimmest things they can find (no matter how small or tenuously-linked) to cast the Russian World Cup in a negative light. The same tactic was used during the Sochi winter games. Anyone remember the double-toileted stall of 2014? Or that time a journalist had no hot water in his hotel room? Oh, the horror. That Russian bogeyman is at it again.

CONSERVATIVES IN AN UPROAR AFTER TWITTER DEPLOYS DRACONIAN SHADOWBAN FILTER

Twitter will now use thousands of behavioral signals when filtering search, replies, and algorithmic recommendations. If it believes you are trying to game its system, or simply acting like a jerk, it will push your tweets lower down. It’s the biggest update so far in the company’s push to create healthier conversations, an initiative announced by its CEO Jack Dorsey in March.

Among the signals Twitter will use: whether you tweet at large numbers of accounts you don’t follow, how often you’re blocked by people you interact with, whether you created many accounts from a single IP address, and whether your account is closely related to others that have violated its terms of service. -BuzzFeed

“A lot of our past action has been content-based, and we have been shifting more and more toward conduct and behaviors on the system,” Dorsey said in a Monday briefing at the company’s San Francisco headquarters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The answer here is quite clear; use social media formats which do not censor, as those seen on the left hand panel of this website. Twitter needs to be ignored out of existence for this, and the time for this to happen, is right the heck now.

iHeartMedia Still Owes Artists $16.4 Million. Now, It Wants to Pay Itself $108 Million in Bonuses

The bad news? Current stockholders would only get a 1% share. The other 99% would belong to 2,021 noteholders and junior noteholders. Private equity owners had lost their entire $2 billion investment.

In addition, iHeartMedia’s bankruptcy filing revealed the staggering amount it owed artists. Including those tasked with paying royalties, the radio and online broadcaster owes $16.4 million.

Clearly not worried about paying off this debt, iHeart’s Compensation Committee presented its 2018 Key Incentive Plan. For running the company into the ground, CEO Bob Pittman would receive $9.3 million in bonus payments. COO Richard Bressler would get $5.3 million, and General Counsel Robert Wells will earn $900,000.

RAPPOPORT: TWO HUGE VACCINE SCANDALS THE PRESS IS IGNORING

Two giant vaccine scandals are in progress at the moment.

The mainstream press is mentioning them, here and there, but without any intent to raise alarms, dig in, investigate, and get down to the core of the problem.

So I’ll get to the core.

The first scandal revolves around the flu vaccine for the current year. The CDC and other “experts” have admitted the vaccine has a very low effectiveness rate.

Why is it a dud?

Because the vaccine is produced using chicken eggs, and in that medium, the flu virus—which is intentionally placed in the eggs—mutates. Therefore, it isn’t the same virus which is causing flu this year. Therefore, no protection against the flu.

U.S. Media Whitewashes Gaza Massacre

Typical of the mindset of corporate media reporting on what happened in Gaza on Monday as Israeli soldiers killed more than 50 protesting Palestinians, is this tweet from CNN. It says: “Death toll rises to at least 52 people during clashes along the border fence between Israel and Gaza, Palestinian officials say. More than 2,400 people have been injured.” CNN’s new slogan is “#FactsFirst.”

Adam Johnson, who writes for the media watchdog Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, responded to CNN with a tweet of his own:

“This one’s got it all:

‘death toll rises’ — no one was killed and no one specific party did the killing, the death toll just mysteriously ‘rises’
‘clashes’ — launders all power asymmetry
‘2,400 people have been injured’ — all 2,400 are Palestinian but lets go with ‘people’.”

Mystery figure targets anti-war pundits and politicians by prolifically editing Wikipedia

A mystery online figure called Philip Cross is targeting anti-war and non-mainstream UK figures by prolifically editing their Wikipedia pages – to the point that George Galloway is offering a reward to see him unmasked.

Active on Wikipedia since 2004, Philip Cross has been editing wiki entries for nearly 15 years. Recently, trouble has been brewing online, with Cross accused of paying special attention to a cluster of Wikipedia accounts, editing them or deleting chunks of information.

Pundits like Galloway, academic Tim Hayward, opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, and ex-UK ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray have fallen in the crosshairs of the editorial mystery man (or perhaps woman) who goes by the name of Philip Cross – and many of them are growing frustrated with the lack of action from Wikipedia to prevent malicious editing.

MSM Is Frantically Attacking Dissenting Syria Narratives, And It Looks Really Bad

I write a lot about how, in a political environment that is saturated in disinformation and propaganda, it’s important to ignore people’s words and watch their actions instead to get a clear picture of what’s really happening. You could not ask for a better illustration of this than the recent behavior of the mass media with regard to Syria.

The always excellent Moon of Alabama put out a piece yesterday detailing the immense deluge of attack editorials disguised as information that have been churned out recently about anyone who questions the establishment Syria narrative, including a single day in which no less than seven smear pieces were issued by prominent publications. Seven. In one day.

How The Sun made up ‘scary Russian ultras’ captions & deceived Serbian photographer

UK tabloids have been working hard to scare football fans from going to the World Cup, because every Russian is a brutal ultra out for blood. Now The Sun has hit a new low, blatantly taking a photographer’s work out of context.
A headline in The Sun on Saturday thunders: “ULTRA VIOLENCE” in capital letters. The article itself is mostly a collection of photos, which it says “reveal life inside Moscow’s gritty underworld, where hardcore football fans and bare knuckle boxers rule the streets.” Some incredibly insightful captions cooked up by the tabloid are attached.

Unluckily for The Sun, the person who took the photos decided not to stay silent and shared his disappointment with RT. He says the photos have been “clearly taken out of context.”

'Europe has LOST IT!' Israeli MP EXPLODES at Brussels' appeasing stance on Iran

The attack on Israeli forces sparked the furious reaction of MP Yair Lapid, who was furious at the European Union for allegedly "appeasing" Iran to secure a deal on the country's nuclear programme.

The Israeli politician told i24News: "Europe has lost it.

Israel news: Yair Lapid ripped into the EU for its "appeasing" stance on Iran
"They lost sight of who are the bad guys and who are the good guys in this entire scenario. They forgot that appeasement never works with terrorists and Iran is a terrorist country."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be one of the most dishonest pieces of corporate media reporting I have ever seen.

First, no missiles were targeted at Jerusalem. All the military action is taking place in the Golan, which is still legally Syrian territory occupied by Israel.

Second, Israel provoked this escalation by attacking Syria just an hour after Trump pulled out of the Iran deal. The Syrian attack was a response to Israel's provocation.

Third, Syria reports that it was the Syrian army and not the Iranian forces that fired the missiles.

UPDATE:" I posted the above to the comments section of the original article.

It was gone less than a minute later.

LISTEN HOW NPR HELPS NORMALIZE TORTURE

In addition to signing off on every act of torture at that center, she also destroyed the video evidence of hundreds of torture sessions.

There is nothing controversial about torture.

It’s illegal.

It’s illegal by international law, by treaty and domestically – and it was before the psychopathic criminal Dick Cheney ordered it using the moron George Bush Jr. as a cover.

Only the Nazis, Stalinist Soviets, the Imperial Japanese military and the Israelis think torture is OK.

Now thanks to the CIA, we can add the United States to that list.

‘Russia’s role in WWII has been distorted by Anglo-American media’

New RT documentary "Remembrance" examines the revisionist narratives about World War II that have muddied the Soviet Union’s role in defeating Nazi Germany, and obscured the sacrifices made by its people.

“I think World War II has been distorted incredibly by the Anglo-American media, and that’s because they wanted to diminish the role of Russia and Stalin who actually defeated Hitler, you know. It wasn’t the United States and Britain that defeated him, it was really Stalin,” says Dan Henderson, a US journalist.

Episode 224

At long last, there are early signs of introspection emerging in the more rarified edges of the mainstream media. Lindsey Hilsum, a distinguished foreign editor on Channel 4 News, for example, sought this week to find an answer to the erupting question of why so many people now prefer the reportage of alternative reporters to that of people like her who think themselves to be the real thing.

Hala Jaber is a significant figure on the journalistic landscape; a celebrated award-winning writer on the Sunday Times, one of the world’s most important newspapers, a war correspondent of considerable bravery, as well as being an author of note; so we invited her into the Sputnik studio to ask why there appears to be a growing move away from “real” journalists to alt-media.

Auf Wiedersehen Google! Berlin demands tech giant LEAVE Germany

Locals in Kreuzberg, Berlin, are waging a campaign to prevent Google from setting up shop in their home after the corporation announced plans in September 2017 to build their seventh worldwide campus there.

One message scrawled on a wall said: “F**k off Google.”

This comes as a French digital rights campaigner living in Berlin - and working under the pseudonym Larry Pageblank - has set up an English-language website called ‘F**k Off Google’ to ward the corporation off his adopted home.

The local anarchist bookshop, Kalabal!k, also holds ‘Anti-Google Cafe’ sessions twice a month and has begun distributing a newspaper called ‘Sh*tstorm: Against Google, Displacement and Tech Dominance.’

US officials growing increasingly concerned Iran could attack Israel

There are increasing concerns Iran is on the cusp of an attack against Israel, several US military officials told CNN.

Intelligence is not clear on when an attack could come and what form it would take, they said, with one official noting that "if there is an attack it might not be immediately clear it's Iran."

The US is watching very closely to see if Iranian-backed actions could come from inside Syria or Lebanon, or even from inside Iran itself, though that would be considered a major military escalation.

FLASHBACK - Confirmed: Facebook’s Recent Algorithm Change Is Crushing Conservative Sites, Boosting Liberals

Facebook’s much-publicized demotion of publishers’ content in users’ news feeds has negatively impacted conservative-leaning publishers significantly more than liberal-leaning outlets, an analysis by The Western Journal has revealed.

Liberal publishers have gained about 2 percent more web traffic from Facebook than they were getting prior to the algorithm changes implemented in early February.

On the other hand, conservative publishers have lost an average of nearly 14 percent of their traffic from Facebook.

This algorithm change, intentional or not, has in effect censored conservative viewpoints on the largest social media platform in the world. This change has ramifications that, in the short-term, are causing conservative publishers to downsize or fold up completely, and in the long-term could swing elections in the United States and around the world toward liberal politicians and policies.
