Simon’s post further exposing the JFK hoax and Dan Rather got me thinking.
Dan Rather started his career being center stage and instrumental in selling the JFK hoax.
Next, watch American sweetheart TV anchorman DAN RATHER – as he relates what he knows of the(yet unreleased) Zapruder clip, only three days after the JFK drama. Enjoy! (and ask yourself if Dan Rather resembles in any way that Mike Walter of USA Today who is featured in my September Clues, relating how “he saw an American Airlines airliner hitting the Pentagon”…)
He then went on to being chief pitchman of the 9/11 hoax:
A few years later, he was fired for “speaking the truth” on Bush’s “military record”
So Dan gets away with telling the two biggest lies of the last 50 years, but is fired for reporting on a relatively minor or irrelevant (also manufactured?) event?
One might think there was a good reason for getting rid of Dan (he finally got a conscious and decided to spill the beans on the great deceptions?), but I doubt it.
I think it was simply a distraction, or another false event, illustrating the fake power struggle between government and media.
There is no power struggle. The two work hand and glove together; both are the two columns (I I) that support the ruling elite, the chessmasters (as Armunn so aptly named).
His final broadcast, in which once again, he invokes his biggest, and proudest, deception: 9/11…
…containing this priceless falsehood: “to my fellow journalists, in places where reporting the truth means risking all”.
The only positive thing about the decline of network TV anchors with the rise of the internet is this: at least Americans won’t be letting the deceivers into their living room on a daily basis any more. Their time has past. What a run they had, though, leading the deception for so long.
