As the war on alleged ‘fake news’ wages on, the establishment is losing horribly. All the corporate media and government’s war on fake news has done is serve to expose the most guilty — the corporate media and the government. From the Gulf of Tonkin to Weapons of Mass Destruction — corporate media and government have colluded to perpetuate the death and suffering of millions.
Government constructed lies spread by their mouthpieces in the media isn’t solely limited to the Pentagon and their blowhards. As a new report from the Guardian shows, fake news is also put out by police departments.
When Santa Maria police chief Ralph Martin was caught last week in a conspiracy to deceive the press and the public through the release of a fictitious news story, he was unapologetic.
“It was a moral and ethical decision, and I stand by it,” Martin said. “I am keenly aware and sensitive to the community and the media. I also had 21 bodies lying in the city in the last 15 months.”
