60 Minutes Caught Deceptively Editing CBS Reporter’s Questioning of Ron DeSantis

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

60 Minutes was caught deceptively editing a confrontation between CBS News correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a piece aired on Sunday night.

The 60 Minutes piece featured Alfonsi accusing DeSantis of engaging in a pay-for-play scheme with Publix whereby he gave them the rights to distribute coronavirus vaccines after they donated $100,000 to his political action committee.

During a March 22 press conference, Alfonsi grilled DeSantis on the issue and he responded in detail to her accusation and rejected it as a “fake narrative.”

The Washington Post Is a Propaganda Organ for War

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

The Washington Post has been long regarded as a CIA asset.  That does not mean it is, but whether it is or isn’t, the Washington Post behaves as one.

Consider its March 26 editorial.  The Washington Post champions Alexei Navalny, “an irrepressible spirit” attempting to rescue Russia from Putin’s corruption and dictatorship, despite being “in Mr. Putin’s crosshairs” (notice “Mr.,” not “President”) and surviving the Russian security service’s attempt to kill him with a deadly nerve agent.

The Washington Post describes Navalny as locked up in a “notorious prison on trumped-up charges, suffering from an ailment” (allegedly neglected by the authorities, of course), poor food, and torture.  The Washington Post warns the Kremlin not to arrange Navalny’s death from a lack of medical attention.

Prince Harry Handed Second Job Tackling Fake News

by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart:

Prince Harry has been given a job as a member of the Commission on Information Disorder by an American think tank, where he will work to combat fake news.

The Duke of Sussex, described by the Aspen Institute as a “humanitarian, military veteran, mental wellness advocate, and environmentalist”, announced that he would be taking on the challenge of countering the “avalanche of misinformation” online, which he claimed had become a “humanitarian issue”.

Mass Media Cover-Up As MSM Again Busted ‘Reporting’ Fake News, And They Wonder Why Their Ratings Are In A Freefall

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

Two major news stories, both of course anti-Trump, have now been debunked, as we see that the use of anonymous sources, and claims by multiple media outlets that they independently verified the information, blow up in the MSM’s collective faces.

Throughout the Trump presidency we saw example after example of fake news reports, citing anonymous sources go viral, then inevitably when the stories were debunked, sometimes weeks later, a small correction was added to a story no one was clicking on again anyway, leaving readers/viewers with the initial fake news to spread.

We saw the media spend years on the Russian collusion hoax, saw three career journalists at CNN lose their jobs, saw retractions, corrections, edited stories, entire articles changed along with headlines, and last but not least, complete deletions.

Absolute proof the Biden “presidency” is FAKED… new video shows green screen compositing “error” that exposes the truth

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Since January 20th, we’ve known the Biden “presidency” has been completely faked, but we haven’t had smoking gun proof of the fakery… until now.

A video, posted by Bloomberg’s Quicktake video channel and covered by InfoWars, appears to show Joe Biden walking toward a group of reporters and telling them he has no plans to visit the border.

But the video reveals an obvious video layer compositing error when the hands of the virtual Joe Biden appear in front of microphones which are supposed to be in the foreground of the frame. In video editing, this is a newbie compositing error that results when the video editing person fails to mask out the microphones in the foreground, causing the fake Joe Biden (who is supposed to be several feet away) to seemingly magically have hands that “phase” over the microphones.


from State Of The Nation:

Are the various Covid vaccines a genocidal bioweapon, covert tool of transhumanism, debilitating gene-altering drug, or all 3?

No one has ever seen before the blatant medical gaslighting of the whole human race.

The unparalleled superlatives not only never cease where it concerns the CORONAhoax, they get even more extreme by the week.

Substack Hurts New York Times’ Feelings, Must Be Censored

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:

Once upon a time, if you wanted to be a journalist there were just a couple ways to go. You could start at a small-town paper as a glorified intern and learn the craft by covering local weddings and town council meetings, then move to a slightly bigger paper, and so on up the food chain until you landed at a major-city paper with millions of readers. Or you could get a journalism degree from a prestigious college, parlay that into an entry-level job at a major paper, and work your way up internally.

IRRELEVANT: CNN’s Brian Stelter Loses 1 Million Viewers Since January, Half of Audience


by Richard Moorhead, Big League Politics:

CNN’s Reliable Sources, a disinformation broadcast hosted by Brian Stelter, has lost almost half of its audience since the ascension of Joe Biden to the presidential throne, struggling to stay relevant in a political era where President Trump is no longer present as a liberal lightning rod.

Nielsen ratings for reliable sources reveal a precipitous decline in viewership since the election and Biden’s Inauguration. Stelter’s broadcast on March 8th received 1.164 million media impressions, whereas his show on November 8th of 2020 had more than 2.08 million.

Normalizing Deceit

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Here is the media’s uniform misrepresentation of a nonevent—“the white supremacist insurrection” at the Capitol:

“Years of white supremacy threats culminated in Capitol riots,” Associated Press, January 14, 2021

“White supremacist extremists are the nation’s deadliest terror threat,” Los Angeles Times, January 16, 2021

“The Capitol attack was White supremacy, plain and simple,” CNN, January 10, 2021

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle floats idea of withholding emergency services from Texas and other states that rescinded mask mandates as PUNISHMENT

by Arsenio Toledo, Natural News:

A news anchor for MSNBC has entertained the idea of punishing states for lifting their Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) mask mandates.

On Thursday, Mar. 4, MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle asked former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Dr. Tom Frieden if states like Texas and Mississippi should be punished for reopening their economies and giving people the freedom to choose whether or not to wear a face mask.

“Tom … when states like Texas and Mississippi – that are in the bottom ten as far as vaccinations go – when they go against CDC guidance and open up, should they face consequences?” asked Ruhle. “For example, should they get access to, let’s say, emergency federal help if they end up with a spike in cases or hospitalizations down the road?”

There’s Only One News Story, Repeating Over And Over Again

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Doing daily commentary on world power dynamics feels a lot like staring up at the sky watching clouds. Sometimes you see a three-legged pony up there, sometimes a gargoyle, sometimes a laughing baby, but really you’re only ever watching tiny water droplets being moved around by atmospheric winds. They can take on any number of different shapes, but no matter how long you lay there staring up at them you’re really only ever seeing one dynamic play out with different appearances from moment to moment.

The daily news is very much the same, except most consumers of news media aren’t aware that they’re watching clouds. They really do think they’re looking at a three-legged pony, a gargoyle, a laughing baby.
