Late last night I stumbled across an article on the Sky site, which gave me a great laugh. Sky News is lamenting how the UK MSM has lost the trust of the UK public!
They have now taken to themselves, the notion that they can somehow win this trust back?
It looks like the UK MSM just cannot come to terms with the realities of the present age in which we are blessed to live. It is now 2019, and the internet has given opportunity for a huge number of alternative media sources to reach the public.
Many of the alternative news sources are much more reliable than the UK MSM, that is for sure.
Of course, we cannot be guaranteed that the internet will always be a source of reliable alternative media, however it is at this point in time.
At the minute, I would hold the view that a section of the UK public no longer trusts the MSM, and will never trust them again. How big or small, that section of the UK public is, can be anyone`s guess?
Perhaps we will see “opinion polls” pontificating on the matter in future days?
The only difference between the Western MSM and the old Soviet Union methods of controlling the media and brainwashing the population lies in the subtlety involved.
The old Soviet method was crude and brutal, the western MSM method is much more subtle, though it can also be brutal when it needs to be.
The video clip below shows a scene from the start of a movie, then a scene from the end of the same movie.
It starts by showing a Russian journalist who has published a book, revealing how the Soviets used the news media to brainwash the public, the journalist is feted and treated as a hero by the interviewer, who proclaims, “this type of thing would not be tolerated in western societies!”
When we come to the end scene, the same Russian journalist who was interviewed with such great respect, at the start of the movie, is now being lambasted and treated in a contemptuous and threatening way because he has produced an article which goes against what the western MSM want people to believe without question. He has very quickly gone from hero to zero!
The scenes from the video are taken from the movie, “The Reflecting Pool.” It can usually be found online. The video below is the trailer for it.
A long time ago, I providentially came across the video clip where the interviewer is speaking to the Russian journalist. What really caught my attention was the identity of the actor playing the interviewer, his name is Alex Hyde-White.
Years ago, I was walking through Leicester Square in central London, lo and behold there was a public promotion event taking place outside one of the cinemas. They had a WW1 fighter plane and leading actors posing for publicity shots with it.
One of the leading actors was Alex Hyde-White. Anyone could stand and talk to them, he was talking to me for quite a while, the guy was very pleasant and likeable, but then, he is an actor, so I did not know if I was seeing the real Alex Hide-White or merely an act?
One of the first things which needs to happen in a post Brexit UK, is the ending of the BBC licence fee! Let the BBC sink or swim in whatever way it can!
There is only one reliable source of information in this world and that is the Bible!
Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
