Shows the power of the real media in breaking through the electronic Berlin Wall

In a groveling public display earlier this week, the Department of Defense announced plans to increase its public affairs efforts due to the devastating effect independent media is having on the Pentagon’s ability to control its news, more specifically, its ability to quash negative news stories before they go viral.
On Thursday, the DoD bemoaned the Drudge Report and the fact that, because of citizen journalists, social media and other online platforms reporting news in real time, the public is more quickly becoming aware of the constant patterns of contradictions and habitual lying by a government long ago captured by a group of corrupt interests.
Drudge Report quote around 14:00.
“..we cannot hide our bad news stories. Bad news gets out one way or the other and we must come to terms with telling bad stories as well as the good,” the secretary of defense for public affairs, George Little, stated.
“When bad things happen, the American people should hear it from us, not as a scoop on the Drudge Report,” Little said.
In essence, this is a signal of defeat to the power that is independent media, and shows just how large of an effect it is having. Alex Jones lends his analysis:
“Just as the term ‘Google’ became synonymous with ‘search engine,’ DrudgeReport.com has become the catchword for all independent forms of journalism alive on the web today.”
Jones believes Drudge’s mention in the DoD speech is a testament to how legit and credible Drudge really is. This is the reason why the news aggregator has so frequently been the target of naysayer critics ranging from exiting-DHS secretary Janet Napolitano to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer, who said that Drudge’s stories actively “hurt” the White House’s message “on a daily basis.”
On one hand, the government has revealed it is not invincible to the onslaught of curious, honest and hard-working journalists eager to obtain and report the truth. It shows just how vulnerable the man behind the curtain really is; in all his power, he’s upset over the few forms of media he can’t control.
With Drudge continually pouring out their contradictions, the federal government is finding it harder to keep their stories straight and consistently gets caught off-guard.
On the other hand, the DoD’s announcement that it will become more “engaged” with journalists is even more unsettling in light of the fact that just two weeks ago the CIA was given a green light to flood America with even more government propaganda.
The fact that they’re openly announcing their intent to infiltrate the media means they’re ready to move forward with plans to squelch the First Amendment.
This is the opening salvo public announcement of open war on the power of the press.
“This is a completely cynical move by the Pentagon,” Alex says. “They’ve been engaged forever in domestic psy-op operations, but now that they’ve been blown wide open by alternative media we’re seeing the psy-op of cognitive infiltration.
“They say they’re going to reach out to the media (that means persuading members of the alternative media with money as well) basically setting up operations against it, but they’re announcing this is not an assault. ‘We’re your friends! We come in peace! We promise we’ll be truthful and we’re gonna communicate! Listen to us!’ It’s actually the opposite. This is the Pentagon, psy-warfare and cyber-security all declaring war on the First Amendment.”
“The only huge website out there that you can call mainstream but also alternative that is really challenging the establishment is the Drudge Report, which should be considered a world treasure, along with all other alternative media. We shouldn’t be demoralized by this development, we should be excited, because this shows we’re having an effect in keeping freedom alive and spreading it worldwide.”
Alex will talk about this in greater detail on his Sunday broadcast from 4pm to 6pm Central.
