The Slow Militarization of CNN

It started with the embarrassing and childish “Situation Room”; where Wolfe Blitzer looks at you and tells you over and over that you are in a situation room! Yes, we must pretend that Wolfe Blitzer is tasked with handling emergencies and you are in the pretend room where he and his team tackle these “situations!”

Now CNN gives us a “Special Investigation Unit.” I worked at the Associated Press for nine years. I dealt with thousands of news organizations over the years. I can pretty much say without a doubt that news agencies don’t have “units.” They have departments, divisions, teams & groups, but they do not have “units.” Nor do they have “situation rooms.” They have meeting rooms, lunch rooms and rest rooms but they do not have “situation rooms!”

“Units” exist in police and military environments. “Situation rooms” exist in government, military and police environments. I know this seems like I am picking on a small issue but don’t be fooled, the fascist militarization of a nation starts small. Part of fascism is military glorification. CNN is helping to usher in more militarization by making it part of our daily lives.

CNN has nothing to do with journalism. They are part of the controlled information apparatus hidden under the cloak of a journalism industry image. What they are doing is dangerous and we must not comfortably accept this quietly. We must first become aware of how little things like “titles” can affect the mindset of our citizens and when we see steps being taken to slowly brainwash this nation into a fascist state we must raise flags and warn our fellow citizens. Don’t overlook this little flag because it is bigger than you think when you look at the big picture.  Think about it!

    Isn’t Blitzer a Mossad agent?
