The Fall of Journalism Ethics and Standards in the Corporate Press

April 18th, 2017 – Fort Russ News –
– Analysis by Samer Hussein for FRN –

While browsing through daily news reports and looking for independent and unbiased sources, it becomes clear the situation is getting worse day by day. While journalism never really was that far away from politics and propaganda, the present-day state may have reached the bottom as regards professionalism and ethics.

Merely looking at the coverage of the Syrian conflict, it becomes obvious that there are hardly any ethics or standards left, at least as regards the corporate and mainstream media outlets, some of which are even taxpayer-funded.

In the past seven years of covering the Syrian conflict, we have seen some of the biggest distortions, fabrications, lies, manipulations and falsifications of events. These include: Dead children that suddenly become alive; refugees from at least three different conflicts on at least three different continents; cardboard-made buildings that are collapsing; Al Qaeda associates who suddenly become human rights activists; American males in their 40’s posing as young and oppressed Syrian lesbians; convicted adult individuals who suddenly become little children and 7-year old girls who speak English with a proficiency of an educated adult native speaker, despite otherwise barely understanding a word of English – these are only some of the many examples from the ocean of Syria-related media hoaxes that have, for the past several years, been flooding people’s minds.

On these examples alone, a question immediately arises of how accurate and honest the reporting on other issues really is. Given how far modern journalism has gone on the Syrian issue, it is legitimate to assume that coverage of other events is not much different.

It may be true that journalism never was alien to the establishment as it was always needed for propaganda purposes, especially in the absolutist and authoritarian systems, however, one is simply amazed upon realizing that ties between journalism and the governing political powers are even closer in the so-called “free and democratic world”, where a diversity and plurality on reporting would be expected. Instead, the reports on crucial issues, namely the conflicts in Yemen, Syria and Donbass, and the foreign policies of US and NATO, are pretty much the same. Even opinionated articles, features and columns have become pretty much alike across all media.
In today’s mainstream press, the situation is even worse than it was decades ago. At least at the time of the Vietnam war, there were few honest journalists who risked their lives by traveling to the midst of the warzones and presented the world with truth, previously hidden under the blanket of lies by the ruling elites and their media parrots.

Nowadays we see less and less of these things. …

An important issue to bring up here is also the fact that such fabricated and manipulated works of journalism no longer seem to pose a problem for various regulating bodies, whose primary task is to monitor the authenticity and legitimacy of the press. Hardly any of the fabricated reports from recent years were investigated for possible law or ethics-related violations.

(audio) Michael Savage compares Assad to Abraham Lincoln — “Civil war is pretty awful. Our dictator, who is now a hero, did things that were pretty terrible, that have been forgotten by history • So before we rush to judgment, we better think about history: ‘those who do not know their history are condemned to repeat it'”

And Syria’s “civil” war is actually an invasion — a covert, Mossad/CIA regime-change invasion through paid, ISIS mercenaries.

Ann Coulter: “We are Staging a REVERSE-CRUSADE where WE HELP WIPE OUT CHRISTIANITY in the Middle East!”

“He’s [Assad] protecting the Christians. Nobody checks with the Syrian Christians over there. They are terrified of Assad being taken out, because they will be wiped off the face of the earth. So we are now staging sort of a reverse-crusade where we help wipe out Christianity in the Middle East.”

(video) Dr. David Janda w/ John B. Wells: ObamaCare/RyanCare – No $Money$ in Prevention – “It’s all about the money and CONTROL” — “The globalists are totalitarian thugs. Their business model is CHAOS. They know if they can create chaos and can have everybody at everybody’s throats, they can strip more freedoms and liberties… to get to their creation of the NWO” • SOLUTIONS: healthcare costs could be cut by 80%! • PERSONAL STORY when 1-year-old daughter was dying — heard God’s voice say: “FOCUS ON PREVENTION. Establish an institute.” She was healed!

INSPIRING, OUTSTANDING interview! One commenter wrote: “I watched THIS ABOUT 30 TIMES !”

One man who does what’s right no matter what!!!!!!!

36:00 “The globalists are totalitarian thugs. That’s the nicest way of putting it. And they use these federal agencies to inflict pain on those who have the courage to step forward.”

39:40 Solutions that would cut costs by 70-80% — or more when…!

43:00 Personal story when 1-year-old daughter was dying — heard God’s voice say: “focus on prevention. Establish an institute.”

Oprah had him on live, apparently so he couldn’t be censored.

On Trump: “They’re afraid he’s going to blow the system apart.”

ObamaCare and RyanCare is meant to control people. Ryan is controlled.

1:35:30 “The globalists’ business model is chaos. Everything they touch they want chaos. And they know if they can create chaos and can have everybody at everybody’s throats, they can strip more freedoms and liberties from freedom loving people than if they have everybody’s tranquil, everything’s good, everything’s calm. … It’s their business model to get to their creation of the NWO.”

Soros is more of a mid-level manager under the Rockefellers and Rothschilds; though, David just died.

A US SOLDIER SPEAKING THE TRUTH! STOP THE WAR AGAINST ISLAM! (Revolution someone!?)

Uploaded on Feb 20, 2010

If a person finds god….he finds the truth……
So i pretty much think that God had something to do with opening this young man’s heart/eyes….
Truth of the matter is…This war against the islam is a fraud, its blood for oil, the expansion of the one nation with more then thousand military bases spread around the world working together with a group of selfish family’s who think they have the right that we dont have…..the freedom to choose our destiny and our future……many might see this as a joke….as a ”conspiracy theorie”…..but the signs are getting clearer every day….the economy, the expansion of wars, the drones, the union’s, the fake left/right paradygm…..My full respects to this young man who spoke out against this fraud….
