(Brandon Turbeville) With the recent hysteria in the mainstream media over so-called “fake news” and “Russian propaganda,” it is clear that the Western corporate press is lashing out wildly at the threat of the alternative media. Every time the corporate press has put forward a false narrative about Syria, the alternative press has been there to dismantle it. Every time a false flag attack happens to galvanize Americans, the alternative media has been there to expose it. Every time the corporate press chooses to talk about Beyonce instead of massive government scandals, the alternative press has been there to pick up the slack.

Thus, it is clear that the alternative media has finally reached the point where it is a major threat to the corporate propaganda operation and the deep state is having to react in order to neutralize it. Hence, we have “fake news” scandals that were entirely manufactured and made up and the reason why unproven claims of Russian propaganda are being reported by actual fake news outlets like CNN, NPR, and the rest as factual.
With all that being said, there are increasing numbers of clashes between alternative media journalists and the corporate outlets trying to slander them. When the corporations can slander alt media personalities without response, the propaganda tends to work well enough. However, when faced with an alt media journalist who can respond, the corporate media tends to fall flat on its face every time.
Below are some highlights from 2016 where the corporate media clashed with the independent media and got its ass kicked. Enjoy.
1.) Eva Bartlett DESTROYS Mainstream Journalist
Having spent a number of months on the ground in Syria, traveling all across the country and, specifically, Aleppo, journalist Eva Bartlett has finally returned to the Western world with yet another round of firsthand knowledge of the Syrian Crisis. Bartlett has traveled to Syria a number of times, each time carrying back a story widely different from that peddled on the mainstream corporate press of NATO countries.
After having left Syria, Bartlett took part in a press conference organized by the Syrian mission to the United Nations. After giving a brief statement about what she has observed in Syria and how she is aware firsthand of the Western media’s deception in terms of coverage of the crisis, she was questioned by a Norwegian journalist, Christopher Rothenberg, who challenged her claims that the Western media was lying.

2.) David Icke Clashes With Obnoxious Childish TODAY Show Hosts
Icke is always characteristically gracious and patient with mainstream journalists who, over the years, have abused, ridiculed, and mocked everything he says, most times taking it out of context to use against him later. Perhaps after years of mainstream stupidity, Icke seems to have come out ready to fight during his latest tour of corporate news. This interview earns its place on the list because a.) Icke brings the ignorance of the hosts full circle at the end of the program and b.) because the male host was so obviously obnoxious that if Icke had said nothing, the TODAY Show was revealed for being the daily dose of brain-killing entertainment that it is.
3.) Eva Bartlett Destroys Mainstream Pundit On Syria Ceasefire Question
Although RT is not what one would consider “mainstream” in the U.S., the debate most certainly involved a mainstream academic, Stephen Zunes of the University of San Francisco as well as Eva Bartlett and historian Gareth Porter. Early on the in the debate, Zunes began reciting his training that there are many “moderate” terrorists and that the Syrian military was responsible for untold amounts of dead civilians. Eva jumps in shortly after and dumps a bucket of cold water on Zunes’ regurgitation of State Department and mainstream propaganda lines. After only a few moments of debate with Bartlett, Zunes becomes more and more frustrated and visibly irate, making gestures and becoming restless throughout the debate.

: On Friday, just two days before Christmas, Obama signed the
: “Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017” bill
: into law.
: This bill will “Criminalize ‘Fake News, Propaganda’ on the
: Web,” a key piece of legislation meant to crack down on
: free speech and independent media. In Layman’s terms, the
: act will allow the government to crack down with impunity
: against any media outlet it deems “propaganda.” The next
: piece of the legislation will provide substantial amounts
: of money to fund “counter propaganda,” to make sure the
: government’s approved stories drown out alternative media
: and journalists who question the status quo.
: The “right to free speech and freedom of the press,” is
: guaranteed by the First Amendment to The U.S. Constitution.
: It is a foundation of American values, put in place by our
: Founding Fathers to protect our liberties, is now being
: endangered by this new law.
: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
: religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or
: abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the
: right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition
: the Government for a redress of grievances.”
: “The liberty of the press is essential to the security of
: freedom in a state: it ought not, therefore, to be
: restrained in this commonwealth.” – John Adams, Samuel
: Adams, James Bowdoin (1780). Constitution of the
: Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
: This is not the first time that the National Defense
: Authorization Act (NDAA) was used to disguise a piece of
: legislation. Back in 2012, Obama signed a law that allowed
: for the “indefinite detention of American citizens” without
: a judge or jury. Then in 2013, Obama signed an NDAA bill
: that packaged an end to the Smith-Mundit act that prevented
: the government from using propaganda against its own
: citizens enabling the government again to legally produce
: What does that mean for you if you are an independent
: journalist or blogger? You can read more here, but it means
: that for simply writing this and asking questions and
: pointing out that Obama always signs these bills around the
: holidays like I did in this poem, if I am accused of “fake
: news” or propaganda, I could face criminal charges.
: In other words the stage is now set for the U.S. government to
: legally crack down on every media outlet that the they deem
: to be “foreign propaganda.” The ministry of truth is setup.
: Welcome to 1984.
: In a statement, Obama said that: Today, I have signed into law
: S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal
: Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017
: appropriations principally for the Department of Defense
: and for Department of Energy national security programs,
: provides vital benefits for military personnel and their
: families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing
: operations around the globe. It continues many critical
: authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to
: sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the
: Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our
: European allies, as well as many new authorizations that,
: among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and
: Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our
: adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles.”
