The Corporate-Owned Media|
As discussed already, the mainstream media participates with globalist lobbying firms and think-tanks in building up or rehabilitating their chosen puppets. ElBaradei was getting the treatment as early as February 2010, and Thaksin has been the gracious recipient of the media's help refurbishing his image since his ouster in 2006.
However, when the NGO's and rabble-rousers start bringing people into the street, the media begins its other role of controlling the narrative. The protesters will always be "peaceful" the government always "heavy-handed" and the truth will always be a day late and a dollar short to ensure carefully prepared propaganda dominates the crucial initial opinions of the public. The media's goal is to build momentum for the protesters on the ground and the international support or "solidarity" to feed that momentum. The gamble is in hoping the momentum lasts long enough to achieve the globalists goals before the truth is ultimately revealed.
Just like the demagogues pandering to the crowd on the ground, the media is high on rhetoric and absent of enumerated, detailed analysis involving grievances and demands. During an engineered globalist color revolution, the media will also myopically focus on "regime change" beyond all other things. This could not be any clearer than in Egypt where headlines were dominated with calls for Mubarak to step down.
During the Thai protests in 2009 and again in 2010, BBC, CNN, and AlJazeera dominated international coverage with similar portrayals of gallant freedom fighters struggling for "democracy" and "free elections" against a heavy handed dictatorship. They focused mainly on classic class-warfare rhetoric and of course regime change.
The most cunning ploy executed during this stage of a "color revolution" is focusing on the protesters themselves. In Thailand, the people in the street are generally honest, decent, hard working people. Many would literally give you the shirt off their back. They honestly believe what they've been told and the mainstream media capitalizes on this very real sincerity. The media is preying on the ignorance of the international audience concerning the leadership's role in selling or igniting the protesters' anger. Grievances that could have been constructively tackled through real grassroots activism becomes rhetorical self-serving feedstock for violence, confrontation, chaos, destabilization and regime change.
We must remember who the corporate owned media works for and who they are openly affiliated with. They populate the corporate memberships of multiple globalist think tanks, the very think tanks fomenting the unfolding unrest and presenting their "puppets" as the solution. The Chatham House alone claims the BBC, the Economist, Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, ABC News, the Guardian, Telegraph Media Group, Times Newspapers, and the Daily Mail, all as corporate members and major corporate members.
Summary: Keeping careful track of the rhetoric coming from Chatham House, the CFR, Brookings Institute, RAND, and the other think-tanks along with the wording and talking points expressed by media organizations affiliated with them can reveal an unmistakable almost verbatim agenda.
As the chaos unfolds the media will attempt to control the narrative using misleading statements, propaganda, deceiving footage, and even outright lies. It is also important to remember that many protesters sincerely believe in their cause and may have legitimate concerns which the demagogues then manipulate for their own self-serving agenda. The media will fully capitalize on the protesters' sincerity to appeal to viewers emotionally.
