CNN Exposed Emmy Winning Former CNN Journalist, Amber Lyon, Blows The Whistle
The Conseervative Treehouse ^ | October 1, 2012

Posted on 10/10/2012 3:50:36 AM PDT by BulletBobCo

Perhaps this one of the most important discussion threads ever regarding Legacy Media manipulation. We sincerely hope you will take the time to digest the content, think about the ramifications to what is here, and then share the information with others.

This is not a matter of opinion, the CNN stories are documented, attributed and cited. They are factual. Everything is verifiable within the embedded links and citations.

Believe it or not, just creating this discussion thread is risky. We are unable to expand.

Before getting to the CNN Amber Lyon expose’ (which is incredible and troubling) let’s first back up a moment and take you back to a previous video we shared surrounding recent events.

In this first video from Canada the topic is the Libyan US Consulate Bombing and the US Egyptian Embassy being overrun. While the topic of Egypt is a ‘component’ of the issue, it is not our central concern.

The central issue is Media Controlled by The Obama Administration, and more specifically CNN – as a VERIFIED tool for propaganda and disinformation.

Within this Canadian video report you will find footage of a CNN story on Egypt and Mohammed Al Zawahiri. It was produced by well-known CNN Journalist Nick Robertson. The entire video is excellent, but the pertinent aspect is at the 1:30 mark.

In the previous thread I asked two central questions. The Second Question was:

Why would CNN [or CNNi] refuse to air the Nick Robertson report with Muhammed Al Zawahiri (brother of Ayman Al Zawahiri) that clearly shows the Egyptian uprising was 100% in response to his call for protests for release of the Blind sheik on 9-11.? Why would the “most trusted name in news“, hide the report showing the truth, and instead allow the false narrative to be sold, by them, to the American electorate?

Amber Lyon provides the answer(s).

CNN never aired the Nick Robertson report in Egypt because it completely contradicted President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s assertions. In short, the Robertson report, if aired, would have proved Obama and Clinton were lying.

The Nick Robertson CNN report was filmed on 9/9 and, by coincidence, it would have aired at the exact moment Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama began attributing the Egyptian embassy protest to a “U-Tube Video”.

CNN’s refusal to air the real reasoning for the Egyptian Embassy protest turned assault was intentional protection of President Obama, specifically orchestrated by the CNN News group, at the behest of the White House. Specific, intentional, lying.

Apparently they have a history of this no-one knew about. UNTIL NOW.

Amber Lyon is an award-winning journalist who worked for CNN.

She says she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama administration (like the Nick Robertson report), and construct stories in specific manners while working for the left-wing network.

CNN is paid by foreign and domestic Government agencies for specific content.

Let me repeat that. CNN is paid by the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. The Obama Administration pays CNN for content control.

Let that sink in. Additionally CNN and CNN International are also paid by foreign governments to avoid stories that are damaging, and construct narratives that show them in a better, albeit false, light.

Amber Lyon is a three-time Emmy winning investigative journalist and photographer. She accuses CNN of being “fake news.”

Back in March 2011, CNN sent a four person team to Bahrain to cover the Arab Spring. Once there, the crew was the subject of extreme intimidation amongst other things, but they were able to record some fantastic footage. As Glenn Greenwald of the UK’s Guardian writes in his blockbuster article from September 4th 2012:

“In the segment, Lyon interviewed activists as they explicitly described their torture at the hands of government forces, while family members recounted their relatives’ abrupt disappearances. She spoke with government officials justifying the imprisonment of activists. And the segment featured harrowing video footage of regime forces shooting unarmed demonstrators, along with the mass arrests of peaceful protesters. In sum, the early 2011 CNN segment on Bahrain presented one of the starkest reports to date of the brutal repression embraced by the US-backed regime.

Despite these accolades, and despite the dangers their own journalists and their sources endured to produce it, CNN International (CNNi) never broadcast the documentary. Even in the face of numerous inquiries and complaints from their own employees inside CNN, it continued to refuse to broadcast the program or even provide any explanation for the decision. To date, this documentary has never aired on CNNi.

Having just returned from Bahrain, Lyon says she “saw first-hand that these regime claims were lies, and I couldn’t believe CNN was making me put what I knew to be government lies into my reporting.”

Here is a segment of the Bahrain report that Amber Lyon and her team put together. CNNi refused to allow it to air because the Bahrain Government had paid them not to show it.

When Amber Lyon recognized the extent of the reasoning, she challenged CNN. CNN told her to be quiet, and began to view her as a risk. She knew, and found out, too much.

Amber is now trying to tell the story, the real story, of what is going on behind the closed doors of US Media entities. Amber has created her own website, and additionally as noted in the Guardian Article she is trying to share the truth of the deceptions.

What Amber Lyon describes is exactly the reason why CNN never aired the Nick Robertson interview with Muhammed Al Zawahiri in Egypt.

Amber recently did a web interview with Alex Jones on InfoWars. Generally the TreeHouse does not appreciate Alex Jones. He is wound up tighter than piano wire, and unfortunately much of his truth is diminished because of the hype he places upon it.

Alex Jones is easy to disregard as a “conspiracy theorist”, not because of what he says, but because of how he says it. Everything is desperate and dangerous with him.

That said, the words and explanations of Ms. Lyon in the discussion/interview are poignant and vastly informative. So I share the video with you so you can hear from Amber herself exactly what is being described and articulated.

It is critical to listen to what she says, not just about Bahrain but also about what the Obama administration is specifically doing. Just try to overlook the Alex Jones-ism, and focus on what Amber Lyon is sharing.

"MSNBC doesn’t ask to be paid....."

Absolutely. Why pay MSNBC to do what its already doing. I would be like paying a dog to bark.

Answer the who, what, when, why, and how of this statement and you've got something. I imagine weekly meetings between WH staffers and CNN execs, a money trail between the WH and CNN, and the unraveling of the biggest scandal in government second only to the election of Obama. This subject is too hot for anyone in the LSM to go after. Time for the National Enquirer to go to work.

There are a couple of things to consider:

Having an Emmy means almost nothing. It certainly does not equate with honesty. So feel free to dismiss that.

Second, if payments were being made someone at the reporter level would never know about that. The business side of any media organization if far, far, removed from anyone on air. There is an inherent mistrust between the air folks and the “suits.”

Third: the on air folks have NO say about the stories that are aired.

While I want to believe this story...I have too much experience with being around the news business to believe this.

MSNBC was paid directly by the administration. Was a story a month or two back they were paid to run ObamaCare ads.

There’s also a post election plan to dump millions on Hollywood to run episodes of popular tv series to promote ObamaCare.

...”From Amber’s interview, her ax to be ground is more of a journalistic ethics one, but Lara definitely is now feeling the hate from her awful experience, and rightfully so. Seems she was told to suck it up and take one for the team. She is pissed and I’m sure Beck’s people are reaching out to both of them.”...

I am thinking we have come to a place where honest journalists are
beginning to take a stand. Their moral principles will not allow them to “look the other way” anymore. I imagine they have also been educated to recognize the patterns which precede dictatorship and war.

Ms Lyon says...

“CNN International is earning money from them, producing what might as well be called ‘infomercials-for-dictators...”

If your business is that people pay to advertise on your media outlet, it becomes a fairly trivial matter to make all manner of payoffs and kickbacks appear perfectly legit. Lyndon Johnson had this figured out half a century ago with KLBJ.

Not to mention the more often talked about, “access in return for favorable treatment” quid pro quo.

This is a BIG DEAL!

This suppression is CRIMINAL!

Copy the Link and send it to KEY members of your e-mail list.
Make it clear that it is IMPORTANT and not spam!

Let them know that they only need watch the first 3 minutes of each of the 3 critical videos, to understand the depth of this manipulation.

I heard this woman interviewed by Alex Jones
***************************************

—She was and check out her Facebook. She was also interviewed by RT and the Ahlul Bayt News Agency. She’s pretty pro-Iran and she also made some comments on her Facebook that make her appear anti-Semitic. She also made her own news and I think that is part of the reason CNN let her go—she is more activist than reporter.

I think all the CNN, FOX, ALL of them do some curbing of the news to suit this that and the other person/institution but this woman has an ax to grind. Investigate her before jumping all in with her story...

Kind of like Fast and Furious.

F and F intended to attack 2nd amendment.

Youtube videos intended to attack 1st amendment.

The two rights most dangerous to a wanna be dictator.

Meanwhile, Obama congralulates Hugo Chavez.

I am reminded of that CNN reporter years ago that was reporting on the start of the Iraq War from Saddam Hussein’s headquarters. He did something outrageous but can’t remember now the particulars or the man’s name. He doesn’t work there anymore but he was hanging out with the human shields or something and gave away troop movements or something(not Geraldo and his stupidity). I will see if I can find it.

More than likely S. Hussein was paying CNN way back then too.

It was Peter Arnett:

Interview in Iraq

On assignment for NBC and National Geographic, Arnett went to Iraq in 2003 to cover the U.S. invasion. After a press meeting there he granted an interview to state-run Iraq TV on March 31, 2003, in which he stated:
“ Now America is reappraising the battlefield, delaying the war against Iraq, maybe a week and rewriting the war plan. The first plan has failed because of Iraqi resistance. Now they are trying to write another plan… So our reports about civilian casualties here, about the resistance of the Iraqi forces, are going back to the United States. It helps those who oppose the war when you challenge the policy to develop their arguments. ”
 
— Peter Arnett [11]
When Arnett’s remarks sparked a “firestorm of protest”, NBC initially defended him, saying he had given the interview as a professional courtesy and that his remarks were “analytical in nature”. A day later, though, NBC, MSNBC and National Geographic all severed their relationships with Arnett.[12]
In response to Arnett’s statement on Iraqi TV, the corporation stated:
“ It was wrong for Mr. Arnett to grant an interview with state-controlled Iraqi TV, especially at a time of war and it was wrong for him to discuss his personal observations and opinions. ”
Arnett responded:
“ My stupid misjudgment was to spend fifteen minutes in an impromptu interview with Iraqi television. I said in that interview essentially what we all know about the war, that there have been delays in implementing policy, there have been surprises. ”
 
— Peter Arnett
Later that day, Arnett was hired by the British tabloid, The Daily Mirror, which had opposed the war. A couple of days later he was also assigned to Greek television channel NET television, and Belgian VTM.
