In light of the latest revelations from The Public Accountability Initiative that “the media continues to present former military and government officials as venerated experts without informing the public of their industry ties – the personal financial interests that may be shaping their opinions of what is in the national interest”, I thought it would be worthwhile sharing a few choice words from one of the greatest rappers to ever grace the mic, Immortal Technique.

The following are the final words on Immortal Technique’s “The 4th Branch” from his 2003 album Revolutionary Vol. 2.

The fourth branch of the government AKA the media
Seems to now have a retirement plan for ex-military officials
As if their opinion was at all unbiased
A machine shouldn’t speak for men
So shut the fuck up you mindless drone!
And you know it’s serious
When these same media outfits are spending millions of dollars on a PR campaign
To try to convince you they’re fair and balanced
When they’re some of the most ignorant, and racist people
Giving that type of mentality a safe haven
We act like we share in the spoils of war that they do
We die in wars, we don’t get the contracts to make money off ‘em afterwards!

Bradley Manning Says He Tried To Leak To New York Times And Washington Post Before WikiLeaks

The mainstream media as a dead end for information, via the Guardian:

Bradley Manning has revealed to his court-martial at Fort Meade, Maryland, that he tried to leak US state secrets to the Washington Post, New York Times and Politico before he turned in frustration to the new anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

Manning, the US solider accused of the biggest leak of state secrets in US history, read out a 35-page statement to the court that contained new detail on how he came to download and then transmit a massive trove of secrets to WikiLeaks. It contains the bombshell disclosure that he wanted to go to mainstream American media but found them impenetrable.

Manning also gave insight into the ethical reasons that he had for making such an enormous breach of military orders. Referring to the war logs from Iraq and Afghanistan, he said he felt they would reveal the “true costs of war.”

‘Conspiracy Road Trip’ Presenter: ‘I Was There To Debunk It For The BBC’

According to UK Comedy website Chortle, comedian Andrew Maxwell, has doled out a some surprising revelations regarding his controversial BBC TV show “Conspiracy Road Trip”. He was arrested at gun point while filming the “documentary” but claims his amazing stand up act saved him from serving time in a US prison. He and his team were detained at infamous “secret” US Military base, Area 51. Apparently Maxwell’s madcap routine about The Middleton Sisters which stopped him from being hilariously flung into a dingy holding cell:

The Irish comic and a documentary crew had snuck into the vast desert  installation, believed by ufologists to contain remains of a flying saucer that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, to shoot a BBC show.

But guards armed with machine guns swooped, and ordered the group of 12 to  lie face down on the floor for three hours while the FBI checked their credentials.

Maxwell claims that only the intervention of a Lincoln County deputy sheriff, who had seen his Live at the Apollo routine about  the Middleton sisters, prevented them from being thrown in a Nevada jail.
