Been reading a google-book regarding the way in which tax-exempt foundations and internationalist-minded elite rich like the Rockefellers have funded the social engineering that has shaped our culture and society.
The book is: Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness
On page 42, I came across this quotation from Journalist John Swinton, giving a toast to the New York Press Club in 1953. Supposedly, Swinton was one of the most respected journalists of his time, and he was asked to toast the "independent" press of America.
There is no such thing at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press.
You know it and I know it.
There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
The business of journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. you know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
We are the tools of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men.
We are intellectual prostitutes.
Wonder if his fellow journalists applauded his toast, eh?
This was back in 1953...think anything's changed for the better with regards to our mainstream press?
