Vast majority of journalists are ‘owned’

Former Director of the CIA William Colby famously said the the ‘pickles factory’ owned the vast majority of journalists.

I had an interesting experience with a British journalist (who was subsequently made journalist of the year).  I had gone off on holiday and MI6 tried to kill me. I survived and when I got back there were two messages on my answering machine. They were time stamped on the day that I left.

One was from a nervous KGB agent that I had known at the end of the cold war. She was trying to give me a tip off. The other was from the journalist, who wanted to know the source of the info for my story on the Saudi bombings that later got MI6 DG Dickie D fired. They were desperate to find out where the leaks had been coming from and the journo was tasked to find out before I died. Another time they got at my medicine while I was out at work. Another time I nearly died in hospital.

Never a dull moment!

    I think that Turkey has showed the dangers for honest journalists, when they had the editor and his reporter detained, jailed and accused of espionage over the controversial story about an alleged arms shipment from Turkish intelligence to Syrian rebels.

    This is one of my more pointless comments. None of us are surprised, and the people who would be surprised wont read it because they believe what the media tells them.

    Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the Jewish New World Order


    There are 24 chapters, or protocols. Allegedly these are minutes from meetings of Jewish leaders.

    The Protocols are supposed to describe secret plans of Jews to rule the world:

    (1) by manipulating the economy.
    (2) by controlling the media. <<<<<<<<
    (3) by fostering religious conflict.
