NEWS BRIEF: "Spin of the Week: CBS Sells Fake TV News in VNR Venture", PR Watch, November 22, 2002, Guerilla Watch.
"How low can TV "journalism" sink? For years CBS (and all the other networks) have run fake news stories in the form of Video News Releases (VNRs). But now, CBS is also in the business of creating, producing and distributing fake news! Every day phony TV news stories appear on TV networks and their affiliates. Viewers believe that they are watching real news reports, but are fooled into viewing VNR's produced by PR firms on behalf of their clients. Thousands of VNR's are produced and aired every year. TV news directors save money by filling air time with PR disguised as news. VNRs of course are slanted 'news' stories, subtly biased to promote a product or idea in stealth fashion. VNRs constitute plagiarism and an unethical deception perpetrated by TV news directors upon viewers who mistakenly trust them." (CBS advertisement from "CBS Media Group": http://www.prweek.com/us/about/directory3a/email.htm#elecpub )
"Now CBS has taken this outrage to a new level by entering the profitable business of selling, producing and distributing VNRs. A CBS Media Group advertisement in the current PR Week urges potential clients to hire CBS and 'put one of the world's leading media companies to work for you producing video news releases. CBS even guarantees placement on the CBS Newspath VNR feed'. Karen L. Kapnick, formerly an account manager with MediaLink, runs CBS's business of selling and distributing fake news."

FAKE IRAQ ATTACK
CBS News is creating "news stories" and has been for some time? If that is news to you, then you have not read all our material. In NEWS1151, we reported that CBS News had just been caught broadcasting a totally fake "news" story that American warplanes had begun an attack on Iraq! A Drudge Report reader had flipped his tape machine on when he heard a Special Report on the Iraq attack. This is what he heard and saw:
"[I] discovered Dan Rather reporting a live attack on Baghdad, Iraq. I watched for about 15 minutes as they [CBS] went into very detailed information about the attack. CBS had excellent 3D graphics showing cruise missiles and their routes and targets as well as other various attack methods. CBS also showed LIVE footage of attacks on BAGHDAD which was quite convincing." [Emphasis in original]
Curious because his friends could not find this report on any of the other news stations, this person then telephoned CBS in New York City and asked to speak to their International News Department. He told the receptionist that he was living in Canada and told her that he had just seen live news reports with Dan Rather anchoring, that was reporting a live attack on Iraq. Yet, he could not find any other stations reporting such an event. He added that he had taped the entire "news report". Obviously, he asked her for an explanation.
Rather rapidly, the story came pouring out, from the Drudge Report:
"CBS NEWS hit total embarrassment Friday afternoon when anchor Dan Rather, in full pancake makeup, and Pentagon correspondent David Martin, were caught rehearsing coverage of a U.S. bombing run on Iraq -- a rehearsal that was mistakenly beamed to television affiliates via satellite! For 20 minutes, Rather could be seen on the satellite going through the motions of [describing] a bombing. According to one viewer who witnessed the spectacle, Rather at one point described how it was not known how many casualties were caused by the bombings. 'It felt like Wag The Dog', a senior new producer at a major-market affiliate tells the DRUDGE REPORT. 'I bet the network is living in fear that someone on the receiving end had tape rolling.' "
" 'It looked like a real broadcast of what was going on', Bill McClure, master control operator at WTAP-TV in Parkersburg, W.Va., an NBC affiliate, told the ASSOCIATE PRESS."
This kind of propaganda misinformation has been occurring for a long, long time. We now know that, in Gulf War I (1990-1991), much of the "live footage" of bombing was totally fake; we know now that the film was created in a studio, using very small scale buildings which were very realistically blown up so we would be convinced of the unerring accuracy of our new fangled military hardware. This kind of propaganda probably has been occurring ever since the Vietnam War, and certainly since 24-hour news programming has become popular. After all, how can a station fill 24 hours of news a day with legitimate news? Obviously, some new form of "news" had to come to the forefront.
FAKE NEWS -- IN 1992!
We have reached back into our archives to discover another other news report of these fake "VNR"s.
NEWS BRIEF: TV Guide, February 22-28, 1992, "Fake News", "Over the last few years, fake news has grown into big business. Every day PR (Public Relations) pros supply the country's 700-plus local TV outlets and the national networks with news-like reports and features...Most material... arrives as a 'video news release (VNR)'. This is a collection of pictures and words, delivered free of charge by satellite or cassette, which usually includes everything from background shots that can be edited into a story to a fully produced piece ready to air."
In other words, these 'Video News Releases' (VNR'S) are not spontaneous news which has been recorded, nor is it on-scene news reporting; rather, it is carefully planned and executed acting, designed to look like spontaneous news. TV stations, both national and local, are running these VNR'S as though they were really news, even to the point of showing the TV logo at the bottom of the screen during the time of transmission. And viewers are being deceived.
There are many types of VNR's currently being utilized:
* Private companies, such as General Mills, advertising their products, or introducing new products.
* Sporting events
* Disney World issues many VNR's.
* Pharmaceutical companies
* Hollywood promotional clips for new films
How often are TV stations and networks using VNR's? "Roughly 80% of the country's news directors acknowledge that they employ VNR material at least several times a month ...If anything, this statistic probably understates how commonly the PR-produced material airs...newscasters may carry a piece produced by someone else, without knowing that the original story included VNR footage." (p. 16, 26; Emphasis added)
This incredible information means that VNR material is being passed off as spontaneous news or as journalism produced by the network every evening of the week!! We are being lied to every day by our newscasters.
However, we would be only outraged that TV stations and networks would violate the trust which we have given them; we would not become alarmed as to a possible threat to our freedoms because Government is not getting into the act.
This article continues to expose the ways in which the Government is utilizing VNR's to deceive us. First, several campaigns for President are creating VNR's which are then passed off by the TV networks as spontaneous news. Presidential Candidates Bill Clinton and Bob Kerry are singled out as using VNR's. Thus, these professionally produced mini-films are being used to pervert our election process. The situation is becoming serious.
Then, the TV Guide editors really hit close to home.
"President Bush ...recently hired former Nightline executive producer Dorrance Smith to handle his media. Since then, Bush has gone to the skies to conduct interviews with TV stations in New Hampshire, Los Angeles, and New York, among other places." (p. 16). Our elected President, with whom we have collectively entrusted our lives, is now utilizing fake news to deceive us. We have been warning you for months that the Bible pointedly tells us that deception will be the hallmark sign of the End of the Age, and that the appearance of Anti-Christ will be accompanied by the lie that the world is going to experience Peace and Safety. We have also been warning you that President Bush is not to be trusted, that he is very different in his heart than he is on the carefully-prepared media surface. But, finally, Bush cannot be trusted because he is an adept in the Satanic Secret Society, Skull and Bones, a Brotherhood of Death Society on the par with the Thule Society in which Adolf Hitler trained.
But, this article shares an even more damaging piece of information as to how President Bush and his Administration has utilized this new technique of Video News Release (VNR). "...Some portions of the Persian Gulf war effort were stage- managed in an effort to rally public opinion for military action against Iraq." (p. 11).
Several examples of this manipulation of public opinion on behalf of the war effort were offered:
(1). ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 60 Minutes showed "coverage" of an emotional hearing before Congress by an anonymous Kuwaiti refugee girl. This girl testified that Iraqi soldiers had stormed Kuwaiti hospitals and seized incubators to be shipped back to Iraq. In many instances, these incubators were occupied by Kuwaiti newborn babies. These Iraqi soldiers threw these babies out of the incubators, thus dooming them to death. President Bush used this incident in several of his speeches to create public support for his war plans. The terrifying truth with this testimony is that this poor refugee girl was the daughter of Kuwait's ambassador to the U.S., And that her entire testimony "had, in fact, been rehearsed before video cameras". By whom were these manufactured films created? By a public-relations firm named Hill and Knowlton, whose director was Craig Fuller, former chief of staff to George Bush when he was Vice-President.
(2). Kuwaiti refugees shared stories with the news media concerning Iraqi atrocities. "Those with the most compelling tales -- and the ones most in keeping with the agenda of Hill and Knowlton's client -- were made available to news organizations, thus limiting journalist's ability to independently assess claims of brutalities. Indeed, the PR firm's operatives were given free reign to travel unescorted throughout Saudi Arabia, while journalists were severely restricted." (p. 12).
At this point, we must realize that the American military had created these severe restrictions on journalists. Therefore, the special treatment of film crews for the Video News Release organizations had to come from the same American military. And who is the Commander of the American military? President George Bush.
This article lists several more instances in which this type of professional film making was utilized to manipulate American public opinion. Outright lies were told, to the full knowledge of many in our Federal Government, including Congress, and not one elected or appointed Governmental official told the truth. We believe this is precisely what will occur during the appearance of the Anti-Christ. Both TV networks and Governmental officials across the world will knowingly cooperate to manipulate public opinion, to convince the peoples of the world that Maitreya is who he will claim to be and that he is worthy to be worshipped. The sudden appearance of this duplicity by Mass Media and Governmental officials is just one more sign that the Great Tribulation is very close.
Finally, remember that all the major news networks -- including Fox and Jerusalem Post -- are owned by Illuminist sources. You may find many fine articles and much truth, but you must be exceedingly aware of the probability of disinformation being fed to the public. This is why you must check out news stories with non-establishment sources who are not owned lock, stock, and barrel by the Illuminati.
A good disinformation specialist will give out 80-90% good, reliable
information just so he can mislead you at the most critical time. Now more than
ever before, you need to orient your thinking as we recommend in our report,
"Learning How To Think Outside The Propaganda Box: Learning To Think In
The Opposite Direction To Find The Truth" - NEWS1558.
Never before has Jesus' words been so important:
"Take heed that no man deceive you." -- Matthew 24:4
".. many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." -- Matthew 24:11
"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." -- Matthew 24:24
"... be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." --
As the events of the End of the Age start to unfold, we must really be on guard against deception. Deliberate deception is one of the Hallmarks of the End of the Age and we see it all around us now.
