But report ignores the elephant in the living room
A leaked New York Times memo admits that the newspaper, a bastion of the mainstream press, is being
made redundant by new media, but the report ignores the elephant in the living room – that trust in the
establishment media is collapsing because of its refusal to act in an adversarial role against the state.

  • Leaked New York Times Memo Admits MSM Being Made Redundant By New Media Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com May 15, 2014 But report ignores the elephant in the living room A leaked New York Times memo admits that the newspaper, a bastion of the mainstream press, is being made redundant by new media, but the report ignores the elephant in the living room – that trust in the establishment media is collapsing because of its refusal to act in an adversarial role against the state. The 96-page internal New York Times report, obtained by Buzzfeed, bemoans the fact that the newspaper “is hampered primarily by its own storied culture” because it is staffed by “a cadre of editors who remain unfamiliar with the web” and social media. Although the report lists a number of organizational failures at the Times which have left it trailing new media startups, the memo completely fails to mention the primary factor why establishment outlets like the NYT are losing their audience – because of a complete collapse in trust on behalf of the public. From infamous lies about weapons of mass destruction before the invasion of Iraq to more recent embarrassments regarding fabricated anti-Russian propaganda, the newspaper is emblematic of a widespread perception that the mainstream press has become de facto state media. As former New York Times correspondent Daniel Simpson revealed after he resigned in 2012, the newspaper is a “propaganda megaphone” for the ruling elite. “It seemed pretty glaringly obvious to me that the ‘news fit to print’ was pretty much the news that’s fit to serve the powerful,” Simpson remarked, adding, “The way that the paper’s senior staff think is exactly like those in power — in fact, it’s their job to become their friends.” The new memo isn’t the only indication that the New York Times, and by extension the dinosaur media as a whole, is on the ropes.
  • Back in February the New York Observer interviewed more than two dozen current and former NY Times writers, virtually all of whom were unanimous in acknowledging that the Old Gray Lady is becoming increasingly insignificant. “I think the editorials are viewed by most reporters as largely irrelevant, and there’s not a lot of respect for the editorial page,” one source told the newspaper. “The editorials are dull, and that’s a cardinal sin.” The NY Times’ editorial content is increasingly seen as “utterly predictable, usually poorly written and totally ineffectual,” according to another source. On the whole, faith in the accuracy of mainstream media is rapidly on the decline, with a recent Gallup poll finding that just 23 per cent of Americans trust the institution of television news. From November 2012 to November 2013, MSNBC lost almost half its viewers over the course of just 12 months, shedding 45 per cent of its audience. CNN also lost 48 per cent of its viewers over the same time period. The figures make bad reading not just for the networks and newspapers, but also for the White House given that large portions of the establishment media now serve as little more than regurgitators of the official narrative, routinely failing to challenge the Washington consensus. As Glenn Greenwald outlined in a recent interview, the mass media is increasingly becoming “neutered,” “impotent” and “obsolete” because most reporters only seek to “amplify mindlessly claims of the government,” which is why the corporate press is losing its audience to new media outlets that are more dynamic and at least attempt to get to the truth of an issue while taking an adversarial stance against authority in the public interest. Alert: Imperial Psychiatric Empire Is Invading The Mind Jon Rappoport Infowars.com May 15, 2014 A federal bill, HR 3717 (Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2013), is being refined in the hope of gaining big support from both sides of the political aisle. Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) is the key point man for the American Psychiatric Association.
  • This bill is playing off of Aurora, Sandy Hook, Boston, and other recent “mass events.” The propaganda hook is: catch mental illness early, prevent tragedy. The strategy is: expand mental health services into every cranny and nook of the society, starting with children. Translation: diagnose mental disorders and drug patients with toxic compounds. As I’ve demonstrated in many past articles, none of the 300 officially certified mental disorders has any defining diagnostic test. No blood test, no urine test, no brain scan, no genetic assay. The names and descriptions of all the disorders are outright frauds, packaged to sell harmful drugs. But that doesn’t stop the juggernaut. HR 3717 is designed to do the following, as described in a recent article in Psychiatric News, “Comprehensive Mental Health Bill Introduced in House”: “Among the bill’s provisions is the creation of a new assistant secretary position in the Department of Health and Human Services to coordinate activities within the agency on prevention and treatment of mental health and substance abuse.” That means far greater clout for the feds in foisting psychiatric treatment on the public. “…increase funding for crisis-intervention team training for police officers and firefighters…” This adds a psychiatric component in instances of “crises,” wherein suspects, witnesses and even government workers will receive “mental health” evals and counseling (and drug prescriptions). It’ll be SOP for anyone within shouting distance of a police raid, for example, to experience a brush with the psychiatric system, whenever possible. “…permit disclosure of information about individuals with mental illness to caregivers or immediate family members under certain circumstances.” There goes privacy and confidentiality…one leak and cross-reference after another. “…$40 million a year for the National Institute of Mental Health to fund the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative…or other ‘research on the determinants of self- and other-directed violence in mental illness, including studies directed at reducing the risk of self-harm, suicide, and interpersonal violence.’” More $$ to study how to control the brain. More fraudulent research aimed at blaming “chemical imbalances” as the cause of crime, which again results in more mental-disorder diagnoses and drugging. Keep in mind that increasing numbers of people are being driven over the edge into committing violence, because psychiatric drugs, such as the SSRI antidepressants, are scrambling their neurotransmitters. This is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • “…adopt a ‘need-for-treatment’ standard for assisted outpatient treatment (AOT), he [Rep. Murphy] said, adding that the current legal standard requiring ‘dangerousness to self or others’ to permit involuntary evaluation and treatment was a bar set too high.” This means the government can order more people to receive psychiatric care and forced drugging, erasing the previous restriction. Jeffrey Lieberman, president of the American Psychiatric Association: “We need a public-health initiative for mental health care that moves out of clinical settings into the community, whether it’s in primary care, education, the workplace, or faith-based organizations.” Meaning: tons of new propaganda about the need for psychiatric treatment; the building of community psychiatric centers all across the country; pressure to submit to treatment applied in ordinary doctors’ offices, in schools, in private companies, in churches. This is a diabolical legislative package. If it’s fully implemented, you’ll witness a sea-change in society, in the coming decade. Diagnoses of mental disorders and consequent drugging, already widely in effect, will become as common and ordinary as people eating at fast food restaurants. And the population will eventually forget things were ever different. “Hey, can I borrow your Valproate? My son took my bottle because he ran out.” Look for schools to set up monitoring systems, so they can be sure students are taking their psychiatric meds at the proper times during the day. On their wireless devices, all children will have ID packages that allow them to check into any pharmacy and pick up a prescription refill. And esoteric concepts like “consciousness?” They’ll fade from view, because “states of mind” will be defined by mental-disorder labels. This is about more than Pharma profits. It’s also about putting a ceiling on how human beings view themselves. As exemplified by this bill before Congress, the federal government has set itself up as a legal partner and enforcer of a monopoly of the mind. Understand that. There are a million ways to explore and understand the inner life of a person. Psychiatry is just one of those. It’s a pseudoscience and a con and a hustle. But it has the unflinching support of all three branches of government. Which is why the freedom to refuse treatment must be protected, against any and all attacks.
