Movie Recalls Leaks of 2004 Campaign
"Truth" is a movie about the 2004 Presidential election when documents which cast doubt on G.W. Bush's war record were leaked. This controversy could have been as important as the Wikileaks' Pizzagate and Clinton Foundation revelations that helped to swing the recent election. However, CBS backed down, retracted the story and forced Dan Rather to resign.
Disgraceful as that was, journalists had some gumption in 2004. Things have gotten a lot worse in the past12 years.
"All news is lies, and all propaganda is disguised as news." - Willi Münzenberg, father of Communist propaganda
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
The Satanic cult that rules the world is enacting new laws that invert truth and falsehood in true Cabalistic (Communist) fashion.
We have a de facto Communist government, one that serves the totalitarian world government agenda of the Masonic Jewish world central banking cartel. They have been forced to act because the depraved satanic practices (pedophilia, human sacrifice) used to blackmail and control their agents (Clinton, Obama) are becoming public knowledge thanks to the Internet.
Thanks to the Internet, Donald Trump, a Junior member of the Illuminati, was able to steal the Presidency from the intended occupant.
"Truth", a powerful 2015 movie about the 2004 Presidential election campaign shows how far the mass media has degenerated in just 12 years. The movie is about the CBS Sixty Minutes story that the sitting President George W. Bush had used his family's political influence to evade serving in Vietnam. He had secured a safe haven in the Texas Air National Guard and, even then, documents showed he was AWOL. The issue was important since his opponent John Kerry was also under fire for his Vietnam record. This controversy could have been as important as the Wikileaks' Pizzagate and Clinton Foundation revelations that helped to swing the recent election. Except in 2004, CBS turned tail and ran, firing veteran anchor Dan Rather and literally everyone connected with the story based on unsubstantiated aspersions that the documents were forged. To this day, Dan Rather maintains the story is true.

The movie, available on Netflix, is based on the book "Truth and Duty" by Mary Mapes, the veteran CBS producer who midwifed the story. It chronicles how she chased the story and valiantly defended it in an inquisition by her own employers. Cate Blanchett is stunning in this role. First time Director James Vanderbilt is also excellent. I highly recommend this engaging movie which portrays how "news" is created.
Unfortunately, the movie bombed because too much time had elapsed since 2004 and the public bought the media spin that the documents were "forged." Meanwhile, a similar movie Spotlight won the Academy Award for Best Picture and Screenplay in 2015 partly because the target was the Catholic Church, and not the corporate media.
Of course, the movie suffers from its own sheltered liberal assumptions. In his final peroration, Dan Rather laments how the "news" formerly a "sacred trust" was devoured by the vulture of corporate profit.
The US mass media has always been owned by the Illuminati and used to advance their pernicious agenda. Dan Rather is played by Robert Redford who also played Bob Woodward, the hero of Watergate, a CIA operation to remove a too-independent President, Richard Nixon. Dan Rather himself played a key role in covering up the JFK assassination. The mass media in general collaborated in the 9-11 false flag.
But it wasn't until the recent Presidential campaign that the mass media discarded any pretence of honesty and objectivity. They have since doubled-down and lost any credibility that was left.
Thanks to the Internet, the Masonic Jewish (Communist) plan to enslave humanity may yet be thwarted.
Increasingly, the fight for freedom will be the fight to know and speak the truth. We may see further restrictions, but like all draconian measures and absurd lies, they will fail.
There is nothing more powerful than Truth.
First Comment by Tony B
Yes, Henry, things have gotten much worse. The media used to campaign for one candidate over the other in hidden manner and even then usually in editorials separate from actual news. But now the schools and colleges have dumbed down enough people that there is no more pretence, any lie is a good lie if it backs the chosen ones. Just call it "news" and that legitimizes the lie in media-think. A tactic polished in the numerous false flags such as Sandy Hook, 9/11, and the Florida queers. Also it was until recently considered non-allowable to trash a candidate no matter how trashable he might be. Now any scandal is fine, true or false, so long as it isn't scandalizing the chosen candidate.
Oppositely, the whole, brand new, hullabaloo concerning so-called "false news" is nothing but an in-your-face attempt to cover up heretofore hidden scandals about the chosen which the uncontrolled parts of the Internet make public. The new difference is that instead of claiming they had no way to know of the scandal, the media prostitutes now just lie about the scandal's existence. "If it ain't OUR news, it's a lie because it never happened" is their attempted message. Of course, before the Internet, this tactic was unnecessary as such scandals never saw daylight but if one did get out it had to be covered and minimized, usually by diverting interest. ("The Russians must have hacked Hillary's emails" - not a peep about the contents of those emails.)
All this shows two culminating truths:
1. Mis-education (brainwashing) has caused gross ignorance of the real world to sky-rocket while, at the same time, the character of the people in general has taken a frighteningly rapid nose dive.
2. The Rothschild co-opted CIA finally has practically complete control of the once legitimate media, a major agenda of its agents since its creation after WW2.
