CNN spreads lies against Iran, Syria: Ex-correspondent

Monday, April 1, 2013

An outspoken investigative journalist and former CNN correspondent has once again stressed that the US-based network is engaged in spreading Western propaganda against Iran and Syria.

Syria’s SANA news agency quoted Amber Lyon as saying that when she was working for the CNN, she received orders to send false news or exclude certain information which the US administration did not approve of with the aim of inciting public opinion in favor of launching an offensive on Iran and Syria.

Lyon added that the mainstream US media outlets intentionally work to create propaganda against Iran to garner public support for a military invasion against it.

She said that the same scenario used before launching the 2003 war on Iraq is being prepared for Iran and Syria.

Amber went on to say that both states are now being subject to “constant demonization” by American mainstream media.

The former reporter clarified that the CNN receives money from the US government and other states in exchange for aligning news content with their interests.

Last October, Amber complained that “there is constant demonization of Syria, Iran and other countries on the US mainstream media.”

She described the attitude as “dangerous to the American public because they are not being given the accurate story and accurate picture of our foreign policy.”

Lyon also said that CNN was bribed by Bahrain’s regime to censor an early 2011 documentary on its brutal crackdown on popular protests.

The former CNN correspondent produced the documentary on the brutal suppression of nationwide protests in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Although it was aired domestically within the US, its broadcast on CNN International was suspiciously withheld, raising charges that the management of the mainstream TV network had pulled the plug on the news story.

Lyon, who was “laid off” by the CNN in March 2012, also revealed that the network gets paid by despotic regimes to produce and broadcast what she referred to as “infomercials for dictators,” saying that the sponsored content of such pieces aired on CNN International “is actually being paid for by regimes and governments.”

Predatory Capitalism and the Rise of the Global Corporatocracy The Lifestyles of an Economic Hit Man An Interview with John Perkin

The system of contemporary capitalist globalization operates for the exclusive benefit of a global plutocracy that has no national boundaries or loyalties. Oligarchy, a word that has been applied exclusively to the modern-day capitalist barons of Russia, is no less real in the triad of the United States, Japan, and Europe.

The operation of this global system and its current financial architecture is as far as it could possibly be from the fairytale version of “free market” liberal democracy glorified in standard economic textbooks and the mainstream media.

The Confiscation of Bank Savings to “Save the Banks”: The Diabolical Bank “Bail-In” Proposal

The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism...argues that the free market policies of Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman have risen to prominence in some countries because they were pushed through while the citizens were reacting to disasters or upheavals. It is implied that some man-made crises, such as the Falklands war, may have been created with the intention of pushing through these unpopular reforms in their wake.
Part 1 psychiatric shock therapy
Part 2 shock doctrine to transform South American economies in the 1970s
Part 3 apply the shock doctrine without the need for extreme violence against sections of the population. The mild shock therapy of Margaret Thatcher is explained as being made possible by the Falklands War, while free market reform in Bolivia was possible due to a combination of pre-existing economic crises and the charisma of Jeffrey Sachs.

Part 4 Shock doctrine was applied in Poland, Russia, South Africa and to the tiger economies during the 1997 Asian financial crisis.

Part 5 "Disaster Capitalism Complex"...companies have learnt to profit from disasters. She talks about how the same personnel move easily from security-related posts in US government agencies to lucrative positions in corporations.

Part 6 Occupation of Iraq, which Klein describes as the most comprehensive and full-scale implementation of the shock doctrine ever attempted.

Part 7 Winners and losers of economic shock therapy – how narrow groups will often do very well by moving into luxurious gated communities while large sections of the population are left with decaying public infrastructure, declining incomes and increased unemployment.

Conclusion is about the backlash against the shock doctrine and economic institutions that propagate it like the World Bank and IMF.

Notes from Distant Battlegrounds by Michael Colhaze

( )

The historical mission of our time is to arrange a new culture of humanity, one that will replace the previous ruling system. This reorganization consists of two essentials: the destruction of the old order and the building of the new. To begin with, all physical border posts, ethical barriers and social definitions of the old system must be eliminated and replaced by elements of the new system. Thus the first task of our time is DESTRUCTION! Every social strata and all social formations created by the old system must be destroyed, each individual has to be uprooted from its ancestral environments, no tradition will be anymore regarded as sacred, the Old is merely a sign of disease, and the new credo is: What was, must go! And even though during the first phase all people are declared the same, in the next and final phase they need to be re-divided and differentiated, and a new pyramidal hierarchical system must emerge.
...I observed a small ray of light in the odious murk that has suffocated our unsurpassed Christian-European Culture. Namely a collective indignation expressed by a group of pugnacious citizens who thwarted another brazen attempt to disseminate this nauseous and highly destructive ruse called Modern Art...
The travesty of Russia’s National Coat-of-Arms is one of the most barbarous and degrading exhibits I have ever seen. To pervert a pair of magnificent hawks who once roamed the high heavens into a crude defamation of this country’s national symbol bespeaks a monstrously diseased mind, both in the so-called artist and the one who permits its display. The Double-headed Eagle is a sublime Christian symbol, representing the opposing forces inherent in every human being and the lifelong battle of good against evil that will, if finally won, facilitate the spiritual ascension into enlightenment and divinity...
