One response to “Texts

  1. Thanks for the reading l;ist, dude. I’ll work on it, as almost all the titles are new to me.

    I’m suspicious of our 1/2 trillion-dollar a year Pentagon and their “information warfare” program.

    Apart from PentagonChannel, the press releases read verbatim over the phone, and the stories planted in the foreign news, there may be another issue, I fear.

    US armed services intelligence AGENTS have been placed into control or influence of large commercial media outlets and production companies. They are powerfully shaping the national thinking and dialogue on the full spectrum of political and cultural issues.

    Do you know of any independent research on this topic of Pentagon influence in commercial media?
