Media Lens - Propaganda: ‘The Dominant Grand Narrative Of Our Time’
(...) A vanishingly rare example of the BBC propaganda system being blasted open was the special edition of the Radio 4 Today programme edited by the English musician PJ Harvey on January 2, 2014. In her opening statement, Harvey explained that she wanted to 'do something unusual with the format and content of the programme.' She invited people whom she considers 'to be highly articulate, stimulating and extremely interesting to listen to - people who challenge us and move us to examine our deepest beliefs and feelings.'

Harvey's guests included John Pilger talking about the propaganda role of the corporate media; Denis Halliday, former UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq, on the urgent need to democratise the warmongering UN Security Council (here at around 49 mins); Ian Cobain and Phil Shiner on torture committed by UK forces (here at around 2 hrs : 34 mins); and Mark Curtis on how Britain's arms trade fuels oppression around the world.

Harvey wanted her contributors to be unrestricted in what they could say, and she had asked the Today programme to agree to this before accepting the invitation to be a guest editor. She rightly noted that 'a great deal' of her edition of the programme was 'about censorship in one way or another.'

Predictably, reactionary voices bewailed afterwards that the BBC had broadcast 'left-wing tosh' and 'liberal drivel'. Nick Robinson, the BBC's 'impartial' political editor, took particular exception to the contribution by John Pilger, while the pro-war Murdoch employee David Aaronovitch, a Times columnist with a penchant for wagging a warning finger at Glenn Greenwald, objected to being 'lectured at in a news programme'. (...)

Is the PR Industry Buying Influence Over Wikipedia? | VICE United Kingdom

We all know that Wikipedia can be subverted – it’s an inevitability of an open platform that some people will seek to abuse it, whether to gain some advantage or just for a laugh. Fortunately, the Wikipedia community has strong mechanisms in place to deal with this, from the famous cry of {citation needed} to the rigorous checks and standards put in place by its hierarchy of editors and admins.

In recent months though, insiders have encountered something altogether more worrying: a concerted attack on the very fabric of Wikipedia by PR companies that have subverted the online encyclopaedia’s editing hierarchy to alter articles on a massive scale – perhaps tens of thousands of them. Wikipedia is the world’s most popular source of cultural, historical and scientific knowledge – if their fears are correct, it’s all-important credibility could be on the line.

The king of these Wikipedia reputation managers is a company called Wiki-PR, who specialise in editing Wikipedia on behalf of their paying clients. The promise on their Twitter profile couldn’t be clearer: “We write it. We manage it. You never worry about Wikipedia again.“ (...)

'Fiction over fact' in 9/11 show

The first part of a controversial series on the 11 September attacks was misrepresentative despite being re-edited, the Clinton Foundation says.

US network ABC "chose fiction over fact and entertainment over education" by misquoting Clinton administration officials in The Path to 9/11, it said.

US 'paid anti-Cuba journalists'

At least 10 Florida-based journalists were paid by the US government to contribute to anti-Cuba propaganda broadcasts, the Miami Herald says.

Three writers have been sacked by the Miami Herald newspaper group for an alleged conflict of interest.

One was paid $175,000 (£98,000) for hosting shows on the US-funded channels TV and Radio Marti, the paper says.

The channels are broadcast to Cuba but their programmes cannot be transmitted in the US under anti-propaganda laws.


(Disclaimer: I am no fan of dictatorships, communist or not.)

When Batista ran Cuba the island was pretty much America's playground. The economy and resources were largely owned and controlled by Americans. Americans and others went to Cuba to party, to gamble, to holiday and express themselves freely in ways that were, at that time, less acceptable at home.

Cuban society was badly split between the haves and have-nots. The haves did well because they ran the place for the American owners. The average Cuban didn't do very well, there was a lot of poverty and hardship. A good looking girl could always find work, lots of US sailors, tourists, casinos, the clubs, etc. etc. But, her little brothers were often hungry, barefoot and uneducated.

There was a reason why the Cuban people supported Castro, and still do. They may not be the richest people on earth (especially thanks to American embargoes and economic sanctions), but the kids eat, go to school and have shoes on their feet, and avearge Cubans feel like they got their island back in some meaningful way.

These feelings seem to persist in spite of paid-for American propaganda to the contrary.
