You're In Real Trouble Now

March 2008 Hersh: Don't trust Washington on Iraq.

Prominent journalist Seymour Hersh says the US is 'in real trouble' because news coverage on Iraq is anything but balanced and unbiased.

Hersh said media outlets spread 'fake' news and suggested his audience resort to translations of local media sources when learning about issues concerning the Middle East.

---- March 2007 Doing his part to scare America shitless, this time with what Sy calls The Redirection.

April 2006 Hersh wrote The Iran Plans: A government consultant with close ties to the civilian leadership in the Pentagon said that Bush was “absolutely convinced that Iran is going to get the bomb” if it is not stopped. He said that the President believes that he must do “what no Democrat or Republican, if elected in the future, would have the courage to do,” and “that saving Iran is going to be his legacy.”

January 2005 Hersh wrote "The Bush Administration is looking at this as a huge war zone,” the former high-level intelligence official told me. “Next, we’re going to have the Iranian campaign. We’ve declared war and the bad guys, wherever they are, are the enemy. This is the last hurrah — we’ve got four years, and want to come out of this saying we won the war on terrorism."

Note to Seymour : Please inform your source, the "former high-level" intel official that the "war on terror" like the war on drugs, poverty, crime, the war on AIDS, cancer, etc. is never meant to be "won."

Note to audience: Hersh knows all about spreading "fake" news. Hersh insinuates mainstream media, other than on Iraq, is fair and balanced - Sy fakery.

Seymour "Me Lie" Hersh - "broke" the My Lai story to fuel the '60s anti-war movement - because one faction of the ruling class was ready to take the profit and run. No member of the ruling class wants peace - they just use the rhetoric to move their game piece to another location.

"Brokers" like Hersh, or Woodward and Bernstein, more recently Novak/Wilson etc., are fed the story to "broker" publicly - given to them by a faction of the ruling class; maneuvering a game piece, strategy. After a career is made - Hersh, Woodward, Bernstein - they can be used until they die, and sometimes longer; all "news" brokers figure out their useful idiotness fairly quickly but none will give up the money and glory, nor do they respect the unwashed Joe Schmucks enough to tell Joe he's a schmuck.

Their "stories" never make life better for Joe but he will believe his news is trustworthy; he will shout we has freedom of the press; real news. Joe thinks he has smartened up - he never realizes half of what the "brokers" write is talking down to him and the other half has no significant meaning in it - and he can strut around claiming he's informed because he has bumper stickers and tee shirts; because he knows the soap opera lives of opposing talking heads and politicians. He can't find his own home state on a map but he can find 2 girls and a cup on Youtube.

(Honest news brokers usually die young, and/or never find an audience.)

Hersh says to "resort to translations of local media sources when learning about issues concerning the Middle East." He means turn to local sources of spin, which is the rehash and reprint of the official left/right spin. Seymour Hersh - lifetime mouthpiece for the powers that be.

Bubba, pols and pundits are not members of the ruling class - they are pawns like the rest of us, albeit better dressed, better paid, awarded and knighted and honoraried and such.
