Médias & Internet
Une autre série d'article à archiver au sujet, cette fois, des médias et de l'Internet. Vous y trouverez des articles sur la censure, le contrôle des médias et de l'Internet, la propagande, les agissements de YouTube et Google, ainsi que les ramifications des services secrets sur le Net et plus!
Freenet is free software which lets you publish and obtain information on the Internet without fear of censorship. To achieve this freedom, the network is entirely decentralized and publishers and consumers of information are anonymous. Without anonymity there can never be true freedom of speech, and without decentralization the network will be vulnerable to attack.
Communications by Freenet nodes are encrypted and are "routed-through" other nodes to make it extremely difficult to determine who is requesting the information and what its content is.
A different way to send info over the internet.
"It's beyond censorship, it is killing the biggest ecosystem of free expression and freedom of speech that has ever existed," I Power spokesperson Reese Leysen said. I Power was the first group to report on the possible changes.
The UK has recently introduced a national Internet censorship scheme, a national ID card and is about to spend 12 billion pounds pushing the British population's web-searches, emails, sms messages and telephone callings records through a central database run by its spy agency, GCHQ. This month saw a secret
That’s not just like banning books. It’s like banning books, and banning saying the banned book’s title. It’s a lot of banning.

George Orwell was much more than a gifted writer: he was a prophet.
As historians ponder George W. Bush's disastrous presidency, they may wonder how Republicans perfected a propaganda system that could fool tens of millions of Americans, intimidate Democrats, and transform the vaunted
To understand this extraordinary development, historians might want to look back at the 1980s and examine the Iran-Contra scandal's "lost chapter," a narrative describing how Ronald Reagan's administration brought CIA tactics to bear domestically to reshape the way Americans perceived the world.
The legislation, which failed to pass in an earlier vote in the country's lower house in April, was approved on Tuesday in the government's second attempt, with 296 votes for and 233 against.
But precisely because these videos are having such a large effect on the political landscape, there is now a backlash by the corporations whose interests are threatened by a renaissance of grassroots citizen journalism. As The Corbett Report has detailed in the past, the fears of insidious corporate control over YouTube generated by Google’s takeover of the site in 2006 have been realized slowly but surely.
In other words, YouTube is being turned into another TV network like ABCNNBBCBS.
Matt Cutts, a software engineer at Google since January 2000, used to work for the National Security Agency.
Keyhole, the satellite imaging company that Google acquired in October 2004, was funded by the CIA.

Tentons une expérience. Pensez à des opinions que vous pourriez avoir forgées, à des convictions personnelles que vous auriez pu développer à cause d’une ou plusieurs photographies diffusées dans les médias.
Lorsque vous avez vu ces images, avez-vous ressenti de la colère, de l’amertume ou même de la haine ? Avez-vous éprouvé de l' enthousiasme, de la joie, ou peut-être un certain trouble ? Avez-vous été en quelque sorte forcé de changer la manière dont vous perceviez le monde sur la base des émotions suscitées par ces images ?
Maintenant, imaginez un instant qu’un certain nombre de photos parues dans les médias – disons, la moitié pour l’expérience – soient des faux. Seriez-vous contraint de réévaluer votre position si vous appreniez que la moitié des documents soumis à votre jugement sont faux ?
Dans le monde où nous évoluons, nous comptons largement sur notre perception visuelle comme poids et mesure de la réalité qui nous entoure, et les pouvoirs en place utilisent ce fait pour manipuler et déformer ce que nous percevons comme « la » réalité.
Dans le passé, la propagande était répandue principalement par les journaux et les périodiques sous la forme de mots imprimés. Pourtant, tandis que nous avons soi-disant progressé vers le 21e siècle, le taux d’alphabétisation et la qualité de l’éducation ont chuté au point que peu de gens dans les nations « développées » lisent encore. Ainsi, les victimes du système pathocratique moderne ne bénéficient-elles plus, en tant que source principale d’information fiable ( du moins est-ce ce que vous pourriez être en mesure d'attendre des pouvoirs en place )– que des médias visuels.
Many of these governments have honed their Internet strategies beyond censorship and are employing more subtle (and harder to detect) ways of controlling dissent, often by planting their own messages on the Web and presenting them as independent opinion.
“Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, owner of the DailyKos website, now admits that he spent six months in the employ of the US Central Intelligence Agency in 2001,” writes
Famous and respected New York Judge Richard Posner says maybe we should ban links to save newspapers.
This will backfire. The blogs are driving most of what little readership the newspapers have left. In the age of twitter, the blogs are quite capable of reporting and commenting on what is going on around the world.
And frankly, the blogs would not be such a threat to the newspapers IF THE NEWSPAPERS WOULD STOP LYING TO THE PEOPLE!
Almost two-thirds of American newspapers publish less foreign news than they did just three years ago, nearly as many print less national news, and despite new demands on newsrooms like blogs and video, most of them have smaller news staffs, according to a new study.
The Internet has surpassed newspapers as the main source for national and international news for Americans, according to a new survey.
Wikipedia faces a revolt among thousands of its contributors over proposals to change the way the online encyclopedia is run.
Until now, Wikipedia has allowed anybody to make instant changes to almost all of its
But under proposals put forward by the website's co-founder Jimmy Wales, many future changes to the site would need to be approved by a group of editors before going live.
Which means censorship and filtering, the very things Wikipedia claimed to oppose at the start.
A little history:
Wikipedia used to have articles about whatreallyhappened.com and Michael Rivero. Both were filled with inaccuracies, so I undertook to correct them. My changes were deleted! I did the edits again. Again my changes were deleted and the articles locked against further changes with the explanation that I was not considered an expert on Michael Rivero. When I pointed out that I am Michael Rivero, the articles were deleted. Further attempts to create new articles by my readers are consistently blocked.
So, far from being a people's encyclopedia, Wikipedia is just another controlled media outlet.
The head of the Federal Communications Commission said Thursday he will recommend that the nation's largest cable company be punished for violating agency principles that guarantee customers open access to the Internet.
The potentially precedent-setting move stems from a complaint against Comcast Corp. that the company had blocked Internet traffic among users of a certain type of "file sharing" software that allows them to exchange large amounts of data.
The Internet is by far the most popular source of information and the preferred choice for news ahead of television, newspapers and radio, according to a new poll in the
There are four reasons that the mainstream media is worthless.
1. Self-Censorship by Journalists
Initially, there is tremendous self-censorship by journalists.
For example, several months after 9/11, famed news anchor Dan Rather told the BBC that American reporters were practicing "a form of self-censorship":
“You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in
Such as it is, the press has become the greatest power within the Western World, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and judiciary. One would like to ask; by whom has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?
— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Regardless of the issue, the one thing standing between your cause and the resolution of your cause is the mainstream media. Today's media are in place to do one thing, create and maintain a false reality. They ensure that the actions of the ruling elite, government included, are kept out of the public conscience.
In this brief video Jesse Richard, Founder of TvNewsLIES.org, explains how media deception works and shows you how to see it for yourself. He issues a challenge to the collective body of the establishment media and he provides a realistic and achievable solution to the problem.

In other words, Associated Press has a monopoly on the news.... which in reality means we the readers can be told anything they want to say to us, be it true or false.
Critiques of liberal philanthropy are nothing new: indeed such criticisms have regularly surfaced ever since liberal foundations were created in the early twentieth century. In the past few years, however, the number of critical scholars and activists writing about practices of liberal foundations has grown rapidly, and there is now a blossoming literature showing the funding strategies of these highly influential philanthropists are antidemocratic and manipulative. The antidemocratic nature of liberal foundations is epitomized by the long history of collaboration (that formerly existed) between the largest major liberal foundations (like the Ford Foundation) and the US Central Intelligence Agency. Moreover, recent research has demonstrated the key leadership role that liberal foundations played in developing the means by which powerful elites could manufacture public (and elite) consent.
No it isn't.
Internet and telephone communications between the Middle East and Europe were disrupted after three submarine cables between
The internet is under threat from increasingly aggressive and sophisticated attempts by hackers to shut down large parts of the network, according to a new report.
A survey of 70 of the world's biggest internet companies found growing concern over a range of new threats from malicious hackers, many of them rival criminal gangs trying to damage each other's operatons.
The chief weapon remains so-called botnets, or networks of infected or robot PCs, which can be hijacked by the hacker to send vast amounts of data over the internet.
The sheer volume of data can swamp computer servers and bring down entire networks.

Lancement de la "Force de Défense d'Israël sur Internet"
Parce que les antisémites veulent faire croire au monde que :
La Shoahn’a pas existée ou elle a été créé par les juifs…
- L'armée israélienne "Tsahal" est une armée de violeurs inhumains…
- Les "sionistes" ont introduit le virus du Sida en Afrique…
- Les juifs contrôleraient les médias…
Et à la suite de tests concluants, Juif.org lance à l'occasion de Yom Haatsmaout (Jour de l'Indépendance de l'État d'Israël) la "Force de Défense d'Israël sur Internet" (F.D.I.I) qui a pour missions de veiller et combattre les informations antisémites et mensongères à propos d'Israël sur Internet.
Cette Force est destinée à éliminer d’Internet tout contenu antisémite, mensonger et anti-israélien sur ce qui est devenu le premier vecteur de propagande.
Le danger réside dans le fait que des mensonges, des insinuations et des discours ambigus influencent des milliers de personnes non-avertis et sans opinions.
Cette « Force de Défense d’Israël sur Internet » se constitue d’outils informatiques israéliens à la pointe de la technologie Internet mais aussi des juristes et des informaticiens qui piloteront les opérations de nettoyage systématique. (En savoir plus)

There was a time, not too long ago (relatively speaking), that governments and the groups of elites that controlled them did not find it necessary to conscript themselves into wars of disinformation. Propaganda was relatively straightforward. The lies were much simpler. The control of information flow was easily directed. In fact, during the early Middle-Ages in most European countries commoners were not even allowed to own a Bible, nor was the Bible allowed to be interpreted from Latin to another language, let alone any other tome that might breed "dangerous ideas". This was due in large part to the established feudal system and its hierarchy of royals and clergy.
Fox News Busted
Ex-White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan exposed Fox News as a propaganda tool for the White House on Chris Mathews Hardball.
Fox in the White House: It is one of those things you kind of assume to be true all along... and yet are shocked when hard confirmation actually comes. Our fourth story tonight, from the former White House press secretary himself, word that the Bush White House routinely sent--and as far as we know, still sends-- literal talking points to Fox News for its primetime propagandists, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and others... to spout, as if ventriloquist dummies, as if they had thought of it themselves, as if they had come to those opinions independently, as if there had been a process either fair... or balanced.
