Even if the MSM wasn’t the major source of propaganda we consume today; and even if they told the truth 100% of the time, that would not be enough. Why? Because they –like so many of us– live within a ‘Walled-Garden’ constructed with the help of many of our tax-exempt foundations; and this is documented in their own archives as revealed in the 1953 U.S. Congressman B. Carroll Reece Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations (commonly referred to as the Reece Committee).
So even if the MSM decided to become legit, they would fall short of the mark, since so many of their fundamental assumptions are just incorrect. The walls of the garden are constructed of these unexamined assumptions. So, if we intend to discover the truth, we must learn to look over these walls and see what is on the other side.
Comment from Steven Gutmann Interesting that it happened right at the same time as the McCarthy hearings, too…
“The final report was submitted by Norman Dodd, and because of its provocative nature, the committee became subject to attack. He began by listing criticisms of the Cox Committee, and then moved on to content.
In the Dodd report to the Reece Committee on Foundations, he gave a definition of the word “subversive”, saying that the term referred to “Any action having as its purpose the alteration of either the principle or the form of the United States Government by other than constitutional means.” He then argued that the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and Carnegie Endowment were using funds excessively on projects at Columbia, Harvard, Chicago University and the University of California, in order to enable oligarchical collectivism. He stated, “The purported deterioration in scholarship and in the techniques of teaching which, lately, has attracted the attention of the American public, has apparently been caused primarily by a premature effort to reduce our meager knowledge of social phenomena to the level of an applied science.” He stated that his research staff had discovered that in “1933-1936, a change took place which was so drastic as to constitute a “revolution”. They also indicated conclusively that the responsibility for the economic welfare of the American people had been transferred heavily to the Executive Branch of the Federal Government; that a corresponding change in education had taken place from an impetus outside of the local community, and that this “revolution” had occurred without violence and with the full consent of an overwhelming majority of the electorate.” He stated that this revolution “could not have occurred peacefully, or with the consent of the majority, unless education in the United States had been prepared in advance to endorse it.”
