Corporate Media Complicity in State Crime 38

By Jim Garrison

In a country with advanced technology for news distribution, the removal of a nation’s leader by a coup d’etat will never be attempted unless those sponsoring the murder feel assured that they will have an effective degree of control over the dissemination of the news.  Government control must be at a high enough level to guarantee the subsequent distribution of official news releases encouraging the belief that, however tragic the incident, it was essentially meaningless and all is well.

Modern Politics is Masonry Writ Large 93

By Patrick Murphy

Why do we gather here, each day, at MHB?

The Memory Hole Blog is primarily a place to examine media reporting about what are clearly artificial events, spectacles, really, that are designed to traumatize not only the American people, but,  the whole world.  Whether we call these things “false flags” or whatever better term presents itself eventually, they tend to attract the most boisterous conversation at MHB.  But that’s not all James Tracy is interested in.  Chemtrails and “smart meters” are topics we talk about here as well.  These are not acute traumas like the false flags, but chronic assaults on the natural world that have a gradually accumulating, low grade traumatic effect on us all.

Note from James F. Tracy:

The following series–one of few forthright investigations by US corporate news media of the chemtrails/geoengineering phenomenon–originally appeared in 2005. It is republished here with permission of the Las Vegas Tribune. A Tribune representative stated on a June 5, 2014 telephone query by MHB that all of the paper’s articles may be reproduced if accompanied by attribution to the Tribune as principal source.

Unanswered Questions in the Isla Vista CA Shootings 281

By James F. Tracy

When mass shootings take place in the United States, corporate news media can almost uniformly be counted on to act as stenographers to power. They dutifully report exactly what they’re told by authorities with wholehearted trust and close to no due diligence. This appears to have been the case yet again in the May 23 Isla Vista California mass murder.
