The Fast and Furious Death of Newspapers

• Liberty Underground
Fast and Furious are the last dying struggles of newspapers suffering from self inflicted wounds. Across the nation we see the downsizing and death of newspapers. They have lost and continue to lose their audience and influence. The steady decline of newspapers is not because people don’t want in-depth reporting, want ads, or the comics. It’s because the newspapers have abandoned their historic past of bringing all the news that’s fit to print, to being outlets for the press releases of the government and big business.

I'm not quite sure when newspapers died.

In the early 1980's I accidentally had a conversation with a JFK conspiracy buff who was quite knowledgeable, in many topics, not just that.

He mentioned the (rather obviously) faked photo on the cover of Time magazine.  He spoke of how buffs technically verified that the photo was  faked.  They then sought out major media outlets.  At first, they were welcomed into of high-ranking  media-corporation officials.  Nothing got printed.  Each time they returned to followup, the welcome they got was less warm - eventually, it became chilly.  No doubt about it, they were being stonewalled.

Curious, they investigated the ownership of those media outlets.  They discovered that the ownership of all significant media outlets could be traced to just a few (less than ten) major parent companies.  Whether that small number was say 5 or 7, it's not a big leap from there to 1 - THUH company.

Just this morning, Dr Joel Wallach  spoke (time index 6:00 for about a minute) of how medical schools not supported by TPTB in 1914 became identified as "quacks" in the media.  This eventually leads to this week's supreme court ruling on so-called "Obamacare" (If only it were actually HIS idea and getting him out of office would get rid of this scheme . . . .).

Before that, I recall an incident between Edison and Westinghouse/Tesla.  A rogue elephant at a circus had killed several people.  It was to be killed following that.  A clamor was created by allowing Edison to rant in print that Westinghouse/Tesla's a/c current could easily kill that dastardly rogue elephant.  It just so happens that Edison's dc current would have just as readily dispatched the murderous beast.  In the accounts of these events I have read, no mention is made regarding the lethality of Edison's dc current.  Only Westinghouse/Tesla's a/c current is derided.

These two guys were played off against each other by TPTB of that day.

Wallach mentions the Carnegie's in the above-linked article.

Those fine folks were involved with steel.

At the time the Civil War (again, so-called - there was nothing civil about it!) began, the Intercontinental Railroad was being proposed.  Two competing routes were under consideration.  Not suprisingly, the two routes were aligned with the interests of geographically-based (north/south) factions.

For much less than the war cost in blood and money, two railroads could have easily been built.  6,000 miles.

During the Civil War, the northern route was built along with 21,000 miles of war-related rail.

Wasn't it fortuitous for the steel companies to be able to come up with the resources to meet this "unexpected" demand along with the steel needed for massive amounts (for that day) military hardware?!

Which raises the question of press-based "anti-slavery" agitation prior to the war.

From there, it's not a big leap to speculate about John Peter Zenger.
