Government Colludes with Media Coalition to Subvert Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press

One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas. — Victor Marie Hugo (1802 – 1885), The History of a Crime

While sharp looking liars in suits transmit the state approved “news’’ readily packaged for public consumption, the American people are waking up to the televised lies and deception of the mainstream media. Recent attacks on the U.S. Constitution and thus on the people, have shaken many more minds out of the hypnotic trance perpetuated by the mainstream propaganda machine which falls apart when analyzed with the facts omitted from their scripts.

Attacks on the freedom of speech and freedom of the press have never been as vicious as they have been in recent years. In 2013,Senator Feinstein took the lead in an attempt to ban citizen’s journalism by attempting to redefine the U.S. Constitution. In judicial hearings, Senator Feinstein made an attempt to redefine the freedom of speech and freedom of press, claiming that if a person is not an employee of a state-approved media entity, he isn’t qualified to be a journalist (and his rights are not protected.) While attempting to define what a reporter is, Senator Feinstein brought an example of a 17 year old high school dropout starting a $5 blog vs. “real” reporters with “bonafide credentials” and professional qualifications.

Further in her speech, while referring to the Shield Bill, Senator Feinsten expressed gratitude for the cooperation between the media coalition and the senators who, together, made sure that the bill will not give a protection to those who are not qualified to be “journalists” by the official standards. A legitimate journalist, she explained, is someone who is affiliated with “established” media entities, a list of which she further provides! “We included a very broad list of media entities to which journalists can be affiliated“, said senator Feinstein.

So first Senator Feinstein presumed to define what a legitimate journalist means — a person who works for an “established” media entity — and then she provided us with the list of who the established media entities are! That’s mean that if you are working for one of those designated state approved and regulated mainstream media outlets, you are considered to be real journalist and you can enjoy the protection of the journalist’s Shield Bill. If you not, you are simply viewed as an amateur blogger who is no longer protected by the Constitutional right to free speech and free press — only because Senator Feinstein has said so.
