I think everyone knows how the War in Iraq began, with the claim that Saddam Hussein possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and the way the story geared the American Public for war at the turn of the century. The New York Times led the way with Judith Miller’s commenting on the story with them.
Before I go any further, I’d like to share this article from the Ron Paul Institute that was released on June 26th, 2019, the day I wrote this blog post, stating that the New York Times actually admits to sending stories to the US Government, namely national security officials, for approval before publication.
Anyway, this article goes on to state how almost every single US mainstream media outlet works in cooperation with the CIA. Outlets like ABC, NBC, the Associated Press, Reuters, Newsweek, the Miami Herald, and others. This was uncovered by a journalist named Carl Bernstein who obtained CIA documents and revealed that over 400 American journalists over the span of 25 years “secretly carried out” assignments for the CIA.
