Invasion Of Corporate News....."41 % Uk News Driven By Pr"

Recommended Posts

Only 41%. Im amazed if ever I see any actual journalism nowadays, almost all rehashed press releases...usually with added spelling mistakes.

Still, Im sure leveson or similar will ensure it goes all the way to 100% sooner or later.

has it really take that long for people to figure it out?????

endless barrages of property porn aka perception management(in old nazi jargon) relentlessly for the past 18 years....

what makes you think perception management by news would be ANY different?

in fact is SOOO not at all different perhaps you ought to have a chat with some pre-nazi germans who will quite spookily tell you they've seen this before and it scares the cr@p out of them.

it's no feckin different, precisely the same techniques have been employed ie constant repetition of the big lie...every hour on bbc/sky news etc, on loop for the whole day, with a bit more loop every day for the next week or three to really rub it in.

you are being brainwashed...simple as that,

and the people that are speaking out and alerting you to these nefarious deeds you are en masse calling "bigot..tin foil hatter,nut-job,"

or heretic/infidel/unbeliever(not towing the party or church line....you are in thrall to a quasi-religeous cult after all)...close enough parallel to those who did not conform at the last inquisition.

we were right to confront it last time, we will have to do so again quite shortly.

don't do it for yourself.....do it for your kids.you owe them.

their future has been stolen from them on your watch.

Of course our press is bought and paid for.

Whenever something is on the news I don't ask when or why, I wonder who wants it there.

We've had 5 years now of unprecedented state financial support for the elite dove-tailed beautifully with a sustained media attack on the poor for example. Coincidence? Of course not.

It's the reason the Berlin wall came down. People just want the freedom to be oppressed by corporations.

Like those countries who joined the Euro to be oppressed by Germany.

Or worse both Germany and a cartel of banks / overseeing banking system, parachuting their placemen in to any chosen failed state.

Journos at all news organisation are swamped by PR - it arrives in the post. It arrives via email and now also by social media.

You cannot believe the amount of telephone calls that journos get from PR companies - this is why PR companies hire journos because they want access to their inside info and contacts.

There are loads of perks offered - which no decent journo would every accept - from little things like a, for example, press releases arriving in big bags of popcorn or inside box of sweets/chocolates... through to checking out the first class seating on such and such airline... or doing a review of a hotel in some resort... or test-driving that new sport hatch-back in Italy or Singapore instead of in Clapham.

The higher up the food chain you are in journo world - which means the bigger the programme you are involved with - the greater the PR 'opportunties'.

Edit:

I've yet to hear of a house being offered yet though :)

If anyone remembers Enron, journalists would only recommend "Buys" rather than "Sells", and any negativity would be come down upon fast.

I don't think we're at the stage where the Emperor has no clothes, but expect glowing news for all big companies as they can do no wrong!

I'm wondering what the barriers to non profit orgs or companies starting, that filter such Pr propoganda info on the way to your average punter (perhaps they already exist)

I yearn for a "real news" channel where the V.I & trivial shite is filtered or criticised (perhaps part of my attraction to hpc)

I also wonder if people may get ever a payment for their web search trail info instead of giving it to google for free , in exchange for a free gmail account etc.

Perhaps with increasing wage deflation, such info is increasing in value as its more difficult to find those with spare £££

to spend.

Do co's exist to sell this ?

After recently watching "Horizon - Inside the Dark Web"

I found it disturbing enough to start using the Tor Browser & startpage.com , which I imagine would be a first step to protecting my online privacy so I can then broker it through a 3rd party org for sale or donation.

Its fascinating, seeing how search changes, how many sites do not allow you to log in from this browser, and the amount of scripts etc blocked.

A replacement for Youtube is desperately needed as it is now being swamped with google ads, perhaps a system will arise, where I can swap my data for that
