Mainstream Media Tactic: Label All Opposing Views As ‘Conspiracy Theories’

What does the mainstream media do when they don’t want to discuss a real issue that diverts away the topic from political theater? Simply deem it a wild ‘conspiracy theory’ and pretend it doesn’t exist.

It’s a tried and true method. It has worked for a long line of question-dodging politicians, with both Bush and Obama each speaking out against ‘conspiracy theories’ and those who warn against corruption and tyranny in government. As I detailed last week, in fact, Obama recently spoke to the graduating class of Ohio State University and repeated such warnings. He told the class to ignore and reject those warning of government tyranny, and went on to praise the new United States government system he called ‘brave’ and ‘unique’.

And anyone who decides to attack this ‘brave and unique’ government, or anyone who even questions reports by the government? They must be conspiracy nuts. I joined John B. Wells of Coast to Coast AM a couple weeks ago to discuss how this media tactic works and how I decided to turn to reality over media theater:

Government Criticism Now Equals ‘Conspiracy Theories’

The easiest way to deal with real issues certainly isn’t to refute the questions or discuss the information. No, it’s to brand those asking questions as conspiracy theorists. That, or just censor them altogether. Even Google employees have issued warnings on the official company blog regarding the continued requests initiated by governments around the globe to ‘pull’ content from Google’s massive search and blog service. From Google Plus (their Facebook equivalent) posts to legitimate search rankings, Google says that governments are demanding all forms of government criticism be taken down immediately.

Right now, over 24,000 pieces of content may disappear if Google caves. That’s 24,000 pieces of content that likely includes my articles and other alternative news pieces that criticize our ‘brave’ new government. And expect thousands to be added to that list very quickly.

But of course we must ask: What do they have to fear? I mean after all, if the questions I ask regarding the mega banks admittedly funding the Mexican drug cartels and terror cells are fake (even though NBC reports it’s confirmed along with other news sources), then why be worried? If it’s all just ‘conspiracy’ bunk, then it sure would be easy to go ahead and dispel the rumors once and for all. Obama himself could go on air and break down how ‘conspiracy theories’, like the well-respected eyewitness coach asking questions about the Boston bombing drill that occurred the morning of the race (and not even slightly insinuating anything) are not real.

But, of course, it is because the media cannot refute legitimate questions regarding mega banks and government corruption. Instead, they lump them in with things that no one in the alternative news actually believes like conspiracy theories about Elvis and other silly things. It all ties in to the well-scripted media theater that must run without interruption — no questions allowed!

    Great Post.

    Unfortunately we in the 'alternative media' do such a poor job.
    The majority of AM is focused on bringing empowerment to the writers. We use the same tricks as the MSM, – misinformation, use of scapegoats, use of us-vs-them dynamics. Too many writers should stand on the sidelines and improve their investigative reporting. Not skimp on investigating while turning every headline into a conspiracy in hopes of increasing site hits. Those are the writers that give us a bad name, and unfortunately are what the general public often sees.

    Some people still believe the conspiracy theory that 19 Arab terrorists boarded 3 planes and then evenhandedly steered them into the world trade center and pentagon?

    One of the things that interests me here is that behind all this mass media stuff is a "religious" right-wing and they make the word conspiracy out to be – well I don't know – evil or stupid maybe. If only they went to Ezekiel 22:25 they would see a very interesting word. LOL, you guessed it – Conspiracy. Isn't that interesting?

  6. Ghana Serapis says:

    Let's ALL stop talking about any conspiracy except the only one that matters and that my 99.99 and 9/10 is the men and women controlling my personal value and yours too. That would be money changers, lawyers and politicians through fear of military or police action. So, I beg the question: Joint Chiefs and rank and file do you serve Satan or our Father God and our King and Prince of Peace Jesus Christ? Step up and show yourself Legion. No longer will you deny our Father's commands. Show yourselves here on this website and begin stripping your veil so that the ransom Christ paid for may see it's traitors.
