SUBJECT: Monster-media versus Fake-news
By R.E. Sutherland, M.Ed./sciences
INTRODUCTION: A national debate is raging between the Progressives and the American traditionalists about where “real news” is found. Lawsuits are starting to be filed against large news organizations. Hence, this topic deserves introspection, reverberation, and resolution.
FIRST: What is the “press”?
QUOTE from Black’s Law Dictionary: “In old practice. A piece or skin of parchment, several of which used to be sewed together in making up a roll or record of proceedings. See 1 Bl. Comm. 183; Townsh. PI. 486. Metaphorically, the aggregate of publications issuing from the press, or the giving publicity to one’s sentiments and opinions through the medium of printing; as in the phrase “liberty of the press.”
SECOND: What are the American rights for the Press?
Rights are written. Nothing can be construed concerning “rights”. Therefore, the rights that belong to the Press were written into the original United States Constitution which adopted The Bill of Rights.
Note: The following text is a transcription of the enrolled original of the Joint Resolution of Congress proposing the Bill of Rights, which is on permanent display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum. The spelling and punctuation reflects the original.
On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the United States proposed 12 amendments to the Constitution. The 1789 Joint Resolution of Congress proposing the amendments is on display in the Rotunda in the National Archives Museum. Ten of the proposed 12 amendments were ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures on December 15, 1791. The ratified Articles (Articles 3–12) constitute the first 10 amendments of the Constitution, or the U.S. Bill of Rights.
In 1992, 203 years after it was proposed, Article 2 was ratified as the 27th Amendment to the Constitution. Article 1 was never ratified.
Transcription of the 1789 Joint Resolution of Congress Proposing 12 Amendments to the U.S. Constitution
Preamble to the Bill of Rights – The Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution…
Article the third… 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.
THIRD: What does the Congressional Record tell us about the history of the American Press?
Congressional Record, February 9, 1917 — J.P. Morgan interests buy 25 of America’s leading newspapers and insert their own editors
From Mindfully Yours.org
U.S. Congressional Record
February 9, 1917, page 2947
Congressman Calloway announced that the J.P. Morgan interests bought 25 of America’s leading newspapers, and inserted their own editors, in order to control the media.
The CHAIRMAN: The Chair will recognize the gentleman from Texas, a member of the [defense appropriations] committee.
Mr. CALLAWAY: Mr. Chairman, I ask unanimous consent to insert in the Record a statement that I have of how the newspapers of this country have been handled by the munitions manufacturers.
The CHAIRMAN: The gentleman from Texas asks unanimous consent to extend his remarks in the Record by inserting a certain statement. Is there any objection?
Mr. MANN: Mr. Chairman, reserving the right to object, may I ask whether it is the gentleman’s purpose to insert a long list of extracts from newspapers?
Mr. CALLAWAY: No; it will be a little, short statement not over 2 ½ inches in length in the Record.
The CHAIRMAN: Is there any objection?
There was no objection.
Mr. CALLAWAY: Mr. Chairman, under unanimous consent, I insert into the Record at this point a statement showing the newspaper combination, which explains their activity in the war matter, just discussed by the gentleman from Pennsylvania [Mr. MOORE]:
“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, ship building and powder interests and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press in the United States.
“These 12 men worked the problems out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.
“This contract is in existence at the present time, and it accounts for the news columns of the daily press of the country being filled with all sorts of preparedness arguments and misrepresentations as to the present condition of the United States Army and Navy, and the possibility and probability of the United States being attacked by foreign foes.
“This policy also included the suppression of everything in opposition to the wishes of the interests served. The effectiveness of this scheme has been conclusively demonstrated by the character of the stuff carried in the daily press throughout the country since March, 1915. They have resorted to anything necessary to commercialize public sentiment and sandbag the National Congress into making extravagant and wasteful appropriations for the Army and Navy under false pretense that it was necessary. Their stock argument is that it is ‘patriotism.’ They are playing on every prejudice and passion of the American people.”
FOURTH: Has any Congressional legislation or amendment to the U.S. Constitution redefined the word PRESS?
FIFTH: Define PROPAGANDA
QUOTE: noun: propaganda; noun: Propaganda
1. (derogatory) information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.
2. a committee of cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church responsible for foreign missions, founded in 1622 by Pope Gregory XV.
SIXTH: How does a government label any Press or Media information that goes against its own opinion or mandates?
SEVENTH: When a government wants to control the minds of the people, which are controlled by law enforcement organizations, what does it use as a tool?
ANSWER: Propaganda in Press and Media.
EIGHT: Do any of the major news organizations ever deliberately lie?
SUGGESTION: Let the Reader to go the following link.
With all the headlines about “fake news,” the liberal media elite don’t have a perfect track record, either. Reporter Jayson Blair concocted stories for the New York Times back in 2003, while Stephen Glass fabricated numerous pieces for The New Republic in the late 1990s….(End quote… continues at the link with evidence).
NINTH: Is there such a thing as “fake news”?
If the word FAKE means the same as FALSE, then yes. However, the slick progressives used the words “fake news” to mean any news that goes against the Talking Points that are coming from the organized, government-controlled, owned-and-operated Press and Media outlets. The term used by the Monster Media includes all Christian, Patriot, and/or Constitutional news organizations.
TENTH: What is a monster?
QUOTE: Monster: one who deviates from normal or acceptable behavior or character
CONCLUSION: The television and newspaper sources for information in the have become Monsters of Deception, who obey government controllers and who fail to deliver Truth using good journalism: Who, What, When, Where, and Why. The alternative American news sources came against the monster liars, but were labeled as “fake news” in order to destroy their credibility in the mind of the unsuspecting American. Today there is a very real ongoing battle between MONSTER NEWS and FAKE NEWS organizations. This author hopes that by shining the light of information and by tossing the salt of purifying clarification onto the Public conscience, that all Americans will realize what is happening. Choose Truth.
and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
