A recent CNN article by Nic Robertson is drawing the conclusion that the circumstantial evidence surrounding the recent bombings of ships in the Gulf of Oman points to Iran. I would like to point out that the Gulf War was very good business for CNN and established the network as a major player in mass media. The Wikipedia article covering CNN states,
"The first Persian Gulf War in 1991 was a watershed event for CNN that catapulted the channel past the "Big Three" American networks for the first time in its history, largely due to an unprecedented, historical scoop: CNN was the only news outlet with the ability to communicate from inside Iraq during the initial hours of the Coalition bombing campaign, with live reports from the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad by reporters Bernard Shaw, John Holliman and Peter Arnett."
There is an obvious conflict of interest in the mass media which forces us to question everything they say that generates war fever. Wars are very good business for the mass media, which creates an incentive for them to generate wars. We face this dilemma at the precise time that the social media oligarchs are partnering with organized Jewry to promote mass media reporting over independent media reporting, even going so far as to censor independent journalists.
I do not believe it is mere coincidence that false flag attacks are wrongly being attributed to Iran at the precise time that the mass media are being resuscitated and the independent media are being purged from the internet. They have largely silenced all the voices who would likely attribute these recent attacks to false flags operations.
A war on Iran would be a golden opportunity for the mass media to reestablish itself as the framer of public opinion in the climate of absolute censorship of independent media. The American People will clamor for news, and only the mass media will be allowed to deliver it with their uniform and scripted voice. Left and Right mass media will speak with one voice on issues of importance to Israel, and the American People will be deluded into committing mass suicide by waging war on Iran.
