The recent prank call by Australian radio hosts and the death of the nurse who worked at the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was staying, is given as an example of the need for controlling media! The media just mindlessly repeats the story that the nurse committed suicide as if it was directly caused by the prank instead of properly investigating what happened. Just like their war propaganda – the obedient media repeat every piece of crap from those in power. Others, like Morrissey, are more skeptical of the elites.
The article also mentions the neat little BBC public relations ploy the Establishment used to misdirect public opinion away from those who covered for Jimmy Savile and possibly other pedophiles:
“For example, he said, the BBC Newsnight affair – in which a peer was wrongly linked to a child abuse scandal – involved the naming of the man by social media users rather than the BBC.”
What these cases have in common, including the Murdoch phone-hacking scandal, is that we see elements of the media grovelling in the role of scapegoats. This type of theater misdirects the public away from criticism of the power structure in order to speed up the abolition of freedom of the press, free speech and Internet freedom. And it allows the Establishment to cover up other serious abuses while the privacy-violating Big Brother State grows out of control.
