Death Throes of the 4th Estate (MSM) & Their Need for a Scapegoat

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

The Mainstream Media (MSM) is in its death throes as more of the American public … and in fact the global population awaken to the Misdirection, redirection and disinformation being dumped on us continuously. This is now the purveyor of our new norm, what permeates all of what we are supposed to believe and understand.

Today we suffer not only the tyranny of a hostile government, but also the massive corruption and complicity of The Fourth Estate otherwise identified as the MSM or the Press.

In modern history the press has failed us miserably, aligning themselves with those who would subvert our freedoms and liberties for the benefit of a few elitist would-be emperors. This has never been so blatantly apparent as what we saw in the farce we witnessed as the Presidential election, its perversion by the media and its challenge of the voice of “We The People” in a major push to overturn our voices via (failed) recounts.


Is there any mention by the MSM of the (KNOWN) three million plus illegals voting Democrat? Is there any mention of the (KNOWN) at least four million deceased votes cast (most likely considerably more), again massively favoring the Democrats? Nary a whisper … but if this was factored in then Trump would have won not only the Electoral College vote, but also the popular vote by a landslide! And the MSM is reporting on this … RIGHT ???NOT !!!

msm1Today We The People suffer a government of constant lies, hidden truths, and agenda far beyond anything that benefits us, all trumpeted or parroted by a totally subservient MSM, or The Fourth Estate. This is not a guess and we can see the goals of past CIA Director William Casey …

We will know our program of disinformation has succeeded when everything the American people believe is … FALSE …

… being supported and advanced by this complicit Mainstream Media (MSM) in an attempt to facilitate an unaware and compliant citizenry, fully realizing the benefits of this reality for their masters.

The movie Network released on Nov 27, 1976, foreshadowed a lot of what we see becoming more apparent and prevalent daily. As we become more aware of MSM complicity … what will we do? How will we react? How will we hold the MSM accountable?

Who can forget the following classic scene …

Here is a blatant example of programing and scripting we suffer daily. There are countless other examples … if you care enough to look …

We as a supposed free society, a society that places great value on freedoms and liberties, are so complacent or apathetic that most cannot see what is happening right before their eyes, and we are in mortal danger of losing all we hold dear. It is vital to understand that this corrupt and tyrannical government is not user-friendly, and that their most effective agents in perpetrating their tyranny, the Mainstream Media (MSM), is no longer the harbinger of truth, and protector of our freedoms and rights as most still believe … but in fact a highly effective tool, a treasonous Benedict Arnold aiding in the ultimate destruction of America as “We The People” wish it.

Today the Mainstream Media, The Fourth Estate can only be truly described as Traitors to We The People!

This brings me to one of our most challenging quotes by Benjamin Franklin

“Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

And the question that still remains unanswered “Can we keep it?”

Major media crash: they need a scapegoat

By:Jon Rappoport

They kept telling the American people Hillary Clinton was going to win the election; and in every way they could think of, they told the American people this was a good idea.

Then, on election night, they, the media, crashed.

The results came in.

The media went into deep shock.

As protests and riots then spread across America, the media neglected to mention a) they’d been bashing Trump because he said he might not accept the outcome of the vote, and b) here were large numbers of people on the Democrat side who weren’t accepting the outcome of the vote.

A new campaign had to be launched.

Suddenly, on cue, it was: Hillary Clinton lost because “fake news” about her had been spread around during the campaign.

Fake news sites. That was the reason.

These “fake sites” had to be punished. Somehow. They had to be defamed. Blocked. Censored.

Here is an excerpt from a list of “fake news” sites suggested by one professor. The list is circulating widely on the Web: Project Veritas; Infowars; Breitbart; Coast To Coast AM; Natural News; Zero Hedge; The Daily Sheeple; Activist Post; 21st Century Wire.

Free speech? Bill of Rights? Never heard of it.

Obama put in his two cents: “Because in an age where there’s so much active misinformation and it’s packaged very well and it looks the same when you see it on a Facebook page or you turn on your television…If everything seems to be the same and no distinctions are made, then we won’t know what to protect.”

Excuse me. “We won’t know what to protect?” Meaning what to favor, what to promote, what to lie about? Meaning only some speech is free?

Obama is way, way behind the curve. Thousands of websites and blogs have been exposing major media as fake for years. I started in 2001.

If Google, Facebook, and Twitter keep expanding their censorship of “disfavored messages,” they’re going to pay a price. More and more users will go elsewhere.

The facade of the major media is getting thinner. You can see a glow of rage and resentment behind it. They’re desperately looking for revenge on the millions and millions of people who are deserting them and laughing at them.

They presumed too much. They presumed they had us in the palm of their hand. We were their property. We were transfixed by their authority.

All that is going away. Bye, bye.

The big shift is accelerating. Independent media are in the ascendance. Understand that. Recognize it.

The impossible is happening.

Fake news sites? Please. The major media are the biggest fakes the world has ever seen. Their anchors and star reporters are bloviating cranks. They’re dinner-theater actors.

Over the years, I’ve talked to some of them. I’ve warned them of their coming troubles. They were miles away from believing me. Now, they’re starting to sweat blood.

Major media news for America is still basically manufactured in New York and Washington—plus occasional outbursts from Hollywood creatures who bemoan the decline of inclusive liberalism, as they expand their gun-toting security staffs and dig deeper bunkers. The New York-Washington axis exists in a self-serving bubble, which has now taken serious punctures. The delusional attacks against “fake sites” underlines how out of touch these elites are with the rest of the country.

Independent media outlets are winning. They won’t be stopped.

When the people who now head the tech giants were growing up, they were heralding the Internet as a new era of free information-exchange. But now that they find themselves working with the government in the Surveillance State, they’re fronting for censorship. In fact, they’re showing they were never for freedom. That was a pose all along. They were, from the beginning, agents of repression. They can try to stop independent media now, but they will fail.

Fake web sites? What about fake companies? What about Google, Facebook, Twitter? Behind their happy-happy messages, they were built to propagandize, profile, and control.

Understand this: major media have a rock-bottom article of faith. It is: “We own the news.”

They can’t give it up. They’ll never give it up. It fuels everything they do. It’s the substance and core of their attitude.

As their ship goes down below the waves, they’ll be chanting it. “We own the news.”

But they don’t. In truth, they never did. For a time, they managed to sell that delusion to the people.

That time is drawing to a close.

The elite political class and their media minions fear more than independent news countering their own news. For obvious reasons, every civilization down through history has had its own monopolistic media, its central “broadcasting system.” Its controlled outlet. But now, The One has become Many.

That is the threat.

The rapid proliferation of The Many is an unpredictable X-factor.

The population is waking up to decentralized media. Instead of the hypnotic attachment to one basic information source—the habit of a lifetime—the public is learning to handle multiple sources. Therefore, the hypnotic spell is being broken and dissolved.

This is the basic problem for the elites.

How can they reinstate the trance?

By trying to censor the Internet? By creating a sudden war or other disaster, briefly “unifying” the country? These are not permanent solutions, particularly since more and more people understand such maneuvers and their true aims.

Awake is awake. Putting the genie back in the bottle—particularly when major media denizens aren’t very bright, as evidenced by their latest “fake news” scam—is on the order of trying to perform a piece of stage magic after the audience has already learned how it’s done.

Of course, the media clowns will try. And in the process, they’ll further expose themselves and actually assist in the awakening.

  1. Hi. The title of the article on this web page is “Death Throws of the 4th Estate (MSM) & Their Need for a Scapegoat”.
    Just wanted to point out that “Death Throws” should read: “Death Throes”. Just a minor quibble. The article itself is very informative. Thanks
