CNN Producing “State Sponsored News” for Islamic Dictators

A follow up to yesterday’s post on CNN yanking Bahrain documentary.

Most reader’s here likely get their news from alternative sources, not major corporate state sponsored media. For those who may have suspected CNN was not on the up and up, an ex-CNN reporter Amber Lyon sheds light on her former employer in an interview on Prison Planet. Before you shoot the messenger or discount the source, listen to her words, not so much the hosts: CNN Exposed! Caught Producing “State Sponsored News” in Bahrain.

CNN is producing paid propaganda and passing it off as news to unsuspecting viewers, paid for by foreign governments, often Islamic dictators.

Another source gets to the funding, via CNN International Suppresses iRevolution

On 19 June 2011 at 8pm, CNN’s domestic outlet in the US aired iRevolution for the first and only time. According to Lyons, the documentary was deliberately aimed at an international audience. Yet despite receiving several prestigious journalism awards, and despite the dangers their own journalists and their sources endured to produce it, CNN International (CNNi) still refuses to broadcast it.

In March 2012, Lyon was laid off from CNN as part of an unrelated move by the network to outsource its investigative documentaries. Last month the investigative journalist, who has more than 20,000 followers, began tweeting about CNN’s blatant censorship. “CNNi’s refusal to broadcast ‘iRevolution,’” she tweeted on August 16th, “baffled producers.” Linking to the YouTube clip of the Bahrain segment, she added “the censorship was devastating to my crew and activists who risked lives to tell [the] story.”

The following day, a representative of CNN’s business affairs office called Lyon’s acting agent, George Arquilla, and threatened that her severance payments and insurance benefits would be immediately terminated if she ever again spoke publicly about “iRevolution” or spoke negatively about CNN.

Greenwald believes the call is inked to a massive, well funded PR campaign the Bahraini Royal family has undertaken to improve its global image. As reported by Bahrain Watch, the regime has spent more than $32 million in PR fees since the Arab Spring began in February 2011. One of the regimes largest contracts was with the Washington DC firm Qorvis Communications. As Time reported last November, Qorvis also does extensive PR work for Bahrain’s close allies, the Saudi royal family.

Keep in mind these are liberals now calling out CNN for their paid propaganda, so you know it’s bad.

CNN is not the only guilty party. Fox News is under Saudi influence as documented here and here.

During the violent street protests in France one month ago [2005], the prince said, Fox News ran a banner at the bottom of the screen that said “Muslim riots.”

“I picked up the phone and called Murdoch … [and told him] these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty,” al-Walid said.

“Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from Muslim riots to civil riots.”

There’s an even longer list of prominent U.S. media and academics that were paid to promote Libya to unsuspecting U.S. audiences as well: Libya recruited brother of U.S. intel chief, media to help Gadhafi’s image in U.S.

The Libyan opposition has released a confidential memorandum that described a campaign that included top academics and journalists to improve the image of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in the United States.

Among those said to have been recruited for the campaign was the brother of then U.S. National Intelligence Director John Negroponte.

Libyan sources said the plan, obtained from opposition elements in Tripoli, was implemented and journalists from leading U.S. publications as well as academics were invited to Libya in 2008, Middle East Newsline reported. They said some of the subsequent stories, which reflected Tripoli’s complaint over its relationship with the United States, were published in such newspapers as the New York Times and Washington Post.

In all, 12 people were flown to Libya from July 2006 through June 2007. They included former Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee chairman Richard Perle, historian Bernard Lewis, author Francis Fukayama as well as journalists Thomas Friedman and Fareed Zakaria.

“Nicholas Negroponte briefed his brother and other senior officials in the White House upon his return from Libya,” the memo said.

“We will provide operational support for publication of positive articles on Libya in these publications,” a July 2006 memo by Monitor said. “For example: Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Economist, International Herald Tribune, Financial Times, Weekly Standard, National Interest, Public Interest, Foreign Affairs etc. We will identify and encourage journalists, academics and contemporary thinkers who will have interest in publishing papers and articles on Libya.”

All these outlets continually tell us there is no threat from sharia or Islam. To suggest so is racist. It’s only a matter of time before we find out that politicians, government agencies and media outlets have been paid to promote the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda.

Just for knowing, the presidential debates will be moderated by shills from PBS, ABC, CBS and you guessed it, CNN.

  1. That is why I go to creeping for my news. If they shut you down for yelling the truth you have my e-mail.
    Drudge ok?

    • SON OF A BITCH…!!!!!!

      Does anyone have any answers as to what we can do about this creeping evil ??

      My frustration level is over the top, and for most people I talk to, they are chicken shits and hide their heads in the sand.

      I have come to the rather sobering conclusion that most people out there are complete fucking idiots and don’t have a farts whiff of a clue as to what is happening…I am I alone in this thought?

      Not only that, they don’t want to engage in anything that may make them feel uncomfortable…it seems they don’t give a shit!!
      Grrrrrrr!!!

      • Amboyduke–I really understand your frusteration. I am running into the very same thing. Don’t give up!! Keep on keeping on.

      • I understand your frustration but I can tell you that when I first started talking about it, the numbers of people who are aware of it has increased tremendously. But the hardest ‘nuts’ to crack will be our own politicians, academia, media and even our religious leaders. These people think they have a corner market on the ‘truth’ especially when they defend and appease islam. They look at us as ‘less than’ themselves.

        All I can say is to keep forging ahead. Learn from your mistakes, such as learn from their comebacks (excuses, deflections, bashing, etc) and learn your own comeback. You know you have the truth and good on your side so just keep on.

        I am a bit obsessed with it all and probably drive the people around me a bit nuts. I try to temper it a bit and warn them to not get me started. But they do it anyway and that tells me they want to know.

        What most people are – they are afraid. Afraid if they learn something they might have to do something they don’t want to do. Most people are afraid of being called names and do not know how to rebuttal them. Most people are too lazy to read and learn about islam. But you will find MANY people are waking up and if you give them what they need, you can get what you need too. Give them the tools, easy tools, to be able to carry on the message that islam – the ideology of islam – is downright evil. allah is not God and the words in Arabic for God and Allah are completely different.

        Most importantly is to teach people about islamic deception – taqiyya, tawriya, kitman, muruna, and hudna.

        • Also, join a group such as ACT! for America – get involved with a chapter or become a chapter leader. The organization gives you the tools to become a chapter leader.

          • R_not

            I agree with both Pathfinder and you.
            I, too am somewhat obsessed with watching the rise of islam and all it’s trying to accomplish.

            I can tell you right now, I will NEVER give up.
            I have 3 grand kids all under the age of 10 and if our generation and our children don’t stop this shit cold…our grand kids will pay the price in ways I dread to imagine.

            I truly feel there will be a war…probably within 5-10 years…and it will be horrible beyond your wildest nightmare.
            Europe has an increasing element of patriots who are starting to wake up and fight back against this islamic cancer. England, France, Spain and Germany are all “getting their shit together”.

            I am hoping islam will self destruct, and I think that would happen if we could just contain them within the middle east…let the lunatics kill each other off…but unfortunately they are infesting the western countries as well and bringing their collective insanity with them, so we are directly affected by their antics as well.

            The Democrats in the States and the Liberals-NDP up here in Canada just make my skin crawl. They are as clueless a bunch as ever drew God’s breath…and the Republicans and Conservatives are not a great deal better…God help us!
            Anything for a vote…self serving pussys.

            Sometimes people will bait me, like you R_not, knowing how I feel.
            But lately, I just tell them I don’t discuss islam anymore…I just put on my “lunatic grin” and tell them I couldn’t care less about what they know or don’t know about muslims…I tell them I will no longer waste my time talking to them….because I couldn’t care less about what happens to them…
            Then I say that the people I know, like myself, who are aware of what’s going on in the world are prepared and ready…and “when you people start eating each other, we’ll be able to defend up here where I live.”
            Then I laugh like a total imbecile…LOL

            That usually breaks them up and we move on to other topics. :-)

            I do know this: I have been watching islam with intensity, (AND I MEAN ISLAM, not ‘RADICAL’ islam…BUT TOTAL ISLAM, because there is NO DIFFERENCE), for about 9 years, and as events have unfolded, many people do comment occassionally that I have been correct in my predictions concerning the muslim rise…and I think they are realizing it’s getting very scary.

            I am 63. My generation has never had it’s freedom threatened and we’ve never had to fight for it’s protection. We have been indeed blessed.
            But when the shit really hits the fan…I guarantee I will go down swinging rather than submit to any such pus oozing garbage as islam and it’s collective insanity.
            They are the most loathesome thing ever to infest this planet and we must wipe them off the face of the earth, one way or another.

  2. Give money to the Romney campaign and be generous!

  3. I write to Fox news every so often and tell them (O’Reilly, Hannity, and Huckabee – so far only these) to crack open a book on sharia (I give them the link to a condensed version, and also the full version) and read sharia laws, read the koran and sunnah so they can stop telling us there is a difference between moderate and radical moslems.

    They don’t have one iota of a clue as to what the difference between a moderate and a radical is. One day they will say bad things about the muslim Brotherhood and the next day have one of them on giving us a bunch of taqiyya dribble. And O’Reilly is the worst – he is a supposed history teacher, and his ‘no spin zone’ is a pile of crap when it comes to the taqiyya babbling moslems. He doesn’t have a clue.

    • You are also right about this…Fox is controlled by some muslim entity somewhere…
      I think some Saudi has controlling interest…(???) so they will submit to
      whatever they are told to do…like Creeping pointed out about the change of the wording in the news trailer at thebottom of the TV screen.,..from “rioting muslims” to “people of poverty”, or some such crap.

    • R not and Amboyduke, enjoyed reading your comments, I’ve known for a long time you have it right.

      Re FOX, they weren’t so bad 2 or 3 yrs ago, but now Hannity seems to be the only one with any guts. O’Reilly is an obama man, which disgusts me, he should know better.

      I won’t bore you with further comment, except to say that looking back I’m amazed the Nixon was canned for lying. All politicians do it, but obama lies faster than a horse can gallop, on top of which he is ‘killing America’, and there is no talk of impeachment. Incredible!

  4. In actuality, if that same reporter that was in Bahrain, the white lady with the long hair, were to go to Detroit, Michigan, USA, she would be in greater danger of being raped than in Bahrain.
    While CNN ignores the black mobs that actually take over stores and claim ownership, and beat up a clerk, they report on a bunch of ignorant people who are killing each other over some religion.
    How about some honest, factual, truthful reporting on the crime ridden streets of America? Yeah, that’s the ticket.
    Peace,
    Robert Walker

  5. They are still dictators, whether they are blacks or moslems or whether they are in Bahrain or in America. In Bahrain, us nonbelievers would feel even more afraid to lodge a complaint due to the nature of the oppressive islamic country. Just say NO to dictators and rapists/criminals.

  6. She is a mentally unbalanced war protestor type Socialist reporter crying about why CNN didn’t focus on the atrocities she saw in Bahrain. She displays that she has no depth of understanding of what was taking place in Bahrian except with in her own narrow anti-war protestor mentality. Iran instigated the protests in Bahrain in the wake of feeling great about the progress they made against the Saudi Sunni regime in the Lebanese government through Hezbollah and in Yemen through the Houthi al-Qaeda alliance that formed against the Saudi regime. The State Department was behind putting down the Shiites in Bahrain and they made a public statement that they did not like the way that the Sunnis were handling it. The only useful thing she said was that CNN is a propaganda machine. However, her mentality reveals that she takes part in the anti-Christian Socialist propaganda that she believes in with all her heart.
