CNN Propaganda Machine Exposed by Former Employee
American Thinker ^ | 10/1/2012 | American Thinker

Posted on 11/02/2012 4:15:35 PM PDT by mgist

This interview is just over 40 minutes in length, but it is well worth the time.

Three-time Emmy award-winning journalist, photographer, and former CNN reporter Amber Lyon discusses the brazenly false stories CNN forced her to report, as well as paid propaganda being aired as normal news reporting.

No news around here... still, it's good to expose these clowns for what they truly are.

With all due respect, I think it’s prudent to wait for “The most trusted name in news - CNN” to verify... or at least cover this until I draw conclusions. /

Furthermore, this woman’s entire “shocking” revelation is that the government didn’t want the media to cover the protests in Bahrain, because it’s an ally against Iran.

Anybody here genuinely surprised, or care that we didn’t side with the crazy Shi’a Islamist mob?

After a Romney - Ryan landslide next week I would expect more of these stories coming out about other msm outlets.

Personally I think it is just as likely she got rolled by a bunch of Jihadis into making propaganda videos as what she says being true. The Bahrain government isn’t a bunch of sweethearts, but they are a staunch ally, and they have been threatened by Iran for decades. Iran was fomenting this unrest, and had it not been put down there would have been an Iranian colony there instead of a U.S. ally.

Honestly I think for once CNN did the right thing. Goodness it doesn’t feel right saying that.

Perhaps Amber Lyon has something interesting to say, but I can’t stand listening to Alex Jones.

If the choice is between Alex Jones and the MSM, I'm going with the former.

You should take him seriously on this one. Why do you think Benghazi is not being covered?

So it’s “trolling” to point out that Alex Jones has a questionable track record when it comes to information, like backing 9/11 conspiracy theories?

Or that this woman’s claims of atrocities committed by Bahrain against Islamists who want an Islamic Republic like Iran in their own country is hardly news to begin with?

I’m sorry FRiend, but the media blackout was probably a good thing anyway, unless you think that the Arab Spring governments are still going to be bastions of Jeffersonian Democracy like some deluded people are. But I don’t think that’s the case.
