This Is How Dumb They Think We Are

You are expected to take this seriously. You are expected not to be able to see how absurd this is. This is the Big Lie, the one so brazen, so in your face and so over-the-top it must be true. This is what they do every day. This is how outright media manipulation gets–Not just a function of corporate board membership, parent companies or fear of displeasing the advertisers.

“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
–William Colby, former CIA Director, cited by Dave Mcgowan, Derailing Democracy

“There is quite an incredible spread of relationships.  You don’t need to manipulate Time magazine, for example, because there are [Central Intelligence] Agency people at the management level.”
–William B. Bader, former CIA intelligence officer, briefing members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, cited by Carl Bernstein, The CIA and the Media
