"In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People.” ? Eugene V. Debs, Voices of a People’s History of the United States
I spent a lot of time back in the day watching America’s Most Wanted. I got excited every week watching the counter go up and up of criminals being apprehended. Was John Walsh’s story of his boy being abducted true? Was it a ruse to premise a new TV show? Were these scary criminals really caught? I don’t know, but like everything else in media and the past, it’s worth looking in to.
John Walsh is the creator and host of the longtime running television program, America’s Most Wanted. The story with Walsh was that he created the show after his son was murdered in 1981 and the killer was never found. In 2008, that changed, when the death was blamed on Ottis Toole, who passed away a decade earlier in 1998. The Gematria of Otis Toole is quite interesting.
In the year 2014, I’m really doubting the whole story of John Walsh and America’s Most Wanted, mostly thanks to the research of this blog and other important sites such as fakeologist.com. It seems more likely to me that John Walsh is a fraud and so is his television program. Instead of capturing “the most wanted”, I have a feeling it it more about “spreading fear”. More recently, John Walsh debuted on CNN with his new show, which is a remake of ‘America’s Most Wanted’, titled The Hunt. The debut show just aired and Variety gave it a very fair review, commenting on how CNN continues to blur the line with “news” and “Lifetime television”. If they were speaking even more directly, they likely would have just ousted CNN as a complete and utter fraud of a network.
Zach writes a good post on Pulitzer, even if you don’t buy into the numbers.
Joseph Pulitzer was the famous Hungarian-American Jewish Newspaper Publisher. His papers would be the New York World and the St. Louis Dispatch. In addition to the paper business, he would serve in Congress as was instrumental in getting the Statue of Liberty in New York. His legacy as a congressman was “one who fought against big business and corruption”. He was born in Hungary on April 10, 1847, notice the year ’47 with the same name, but a slightly different spelling, Jozsef Pulitzer.
