Title: The CIA’s Influence Over the Media: Use of the Conspiracy Theorist Slur

The CIA’s Influence Over the Media: Use of the Conspiracy Theorist Slur

“Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th.”—George W. Bush, November 10, 2001

In April of 1967, a CIA official sent a memorandum dispatch to agency chiefs and stations. This memo described a strategy for discrediting critics of the Warren Report, the official account for the assassination of President Kennedy released in 1964. At the time of the memo, polls showed that 46% of Americans did not think that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, in contradiction to the official finding.

To counter such criticisms, the memo proposed labeling critics as “conspiracy theorists” and proposed that the CIA’s “propaganda assets” in media begin to use the slur and other, related techniques to marginalize critics.

Classified as Secret but finally released in 1998, the memo stated, “Conspiracy theories have frequently thrown suspicion on our organization, for example by falsely alleging that Lee Harvey Oswald worked for us. The aim of this dispatch is to provide material for countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit circulation of such claims.”

The memo instructed media assets to discredit those questioning government reports by saying the critics should be depicted as “wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, hasty or inaccurate in their research, or infatuated with their own theories.”

Conspiracy Theorist: One Who Questions the Statements of Known LiarsPosted by Donna Cleveland on Flickr

The approach laid out by the memo was adopted by many in the American media. That’s not a surprise given that Operation Mockingbird, a domestic propaganda campaign aimed at promoting the views of the CIA within the media, was in full swing at the time. And despite official claims that the CIA’s influence of American media was halted in 1976, after the Church Committee findings, the continued use of the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” indicates that the practice has continued.

A few years ago, I tested this by checking how many times the phrase “conspiracy theory” had appeared in the Washington Post and the New York Times in the 45 years before and after the CIA memo.

Before the memo was issued, “conspiracy theory” was a phrase used 50 times, or about once per year, in the Times or the Post. In the 45 years after the CIA memo, these newspapers used the term 2,630 times, or about once per week.

Before the CIA memo came out, the Washington Post and New York Times had never used the phrase “conspiracy theorist.” After the CIA memo came out, they have used the phrase “conspiracy theorist” 1,118 times.

The continued use of terms such as “conspiracy theorist” suggests that the CIA still controls the mainstream media. With regard to the crimes of 9/11, The New York Times has led the way in terms of support for official propaganda. Moreover, many “alternative” media sources use these slurs as frequently, or more, than mainstream media do.

An example was in August 2011, when I was a guest on National Public Radio’s ‘On Point” talk show to discuss 9/11 skepticism. Interestingly, I was the only 9/11 skeptic invited to appear on this show about 9/11 skeptics. The other two guests were Jim Meigs from Popular Mechanics and dubious “truther expert” Jonathan Kay. During the show, I answered questions from the host for about 5 minutes, until it became clear that my skepticism of 9/11 sounded rational. After I was dismissed—for the remaining 42 minutes of the show—Meigs, Kay, and the substitute host rambled on about the evils of conspiracy theories, using some form of the phrase conspiracy theory a total of 85 times. That’s more than once every 30 seconds.

The use of “conspiracy theory” to deter citizens from investigating historic events is paradoxical, to be sure. It suggests that those who commit criminal conspiracies can only be relatively powerless people who happen to live on the most strategically important lands, (and conspiracies among rich, powerful people are impossible or absurd.) It’s just that kind of doublethink mindset that has led us to where we are today as a nation.

Of course, 9/11 was a conspiracy. The only question is was it a conspiracy of people who could not possibly pull it off and who would only suffer as a result.... OR ... Was it a conspiracy of the people who benefited and had the power to accomplish it? The first option presents many problems. Common sense suggests the latter.

These days, it seems that you can tell who is working for the CIA simply by the way they use “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” in attempts to belittle others. An example might be when a lawyer for gold mining companies was presented by the corporate media as a public servant/truth teller based on stolen documents that were never shared with the public. That lawyer and his colleagues at The Intercept use the conspiracy theorist slur as much as any other media source, and often when they are questioned about their dubious rise to fame.

In any case, our entire legal system is based on the idea of conspiracy....

...Yet despite this fact we have been conditioned by the government and the media to blindly accept official reports and to treat anyone questioning those reports as conspiracy theorists; THAT IS, YOU ARE A CONSPIRACY THEORIST IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT'S CONSPIRACY THEORY.

This technique is easy to see. Next time you read an article that uses these slurs, look more closely at the author (or poster/gatekeeper/troll) and where he or she is trying to lead you.

Poster Comment:

Oh, the rich RICH irony. This same Alinsky "Rules For Radicals" technique that is used by Spooks, Gubmint & G00gle against "CT!!" to shut down legit discussion and truth without question WHILE discrediting their opponent:

"Racist!!", "Anti-semite!!", "H0mophobe!!", "Xenophobe!!"(blank]tard!!), "Truther!!" etc!).

This obvious semantic parlor-trick by a panicky unprincipled elite and its army of uninformed/ignorant gatekeepers are no longer able to dam-up 911 lies OR its a plethora of other ongoing accepted Big Lies.

Perhaps it's time to re-examine and re-assess what and whose side you support....and Big Picture Agenda. (1 image)

"Racist!!", "Anti-semite!!", "H0mophobe!!", "Xenophobe!!"(blank]tard!!), "Truther!!" etc!).

You know, Deckard just posted a lovely thread yesterday from a site where you could really fit in.

They hate Jews, Mexicans, blacks, gays and they embrace 9/11 kook theories and - to my surprise - they seem to support Flat Earth theory too.

A veritable smorgasbord for all your preferred reading tastes.

Here's where they dip their toes in Flat Earth waters.

InfoStormer: India Fails to Land Spacecraft on the Moon

As some of you may or may not know, I have a great deal of skepticism about any of this space program nonsense. This extends beyond NASA and the Apollo moon landing missions which I personally believed were all faked in a film studio.

I know not everyone who reads this site agrees with this view, but that’s just how I feel. There’s just too much weird shit surrounding all of the space programs around the world for me to believe that any of this stuff is real.

This includes this recent mission to the moon by India which allegedly ended in failure.

CBS News:

In a crushing disappointment, India’s unmanned Vikram lander — carrying a small rover and the pride of a nation — apparently crash landed near the moon’s south pole Friday toward the end of a seemingly smooth descent.

With Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi looking on at the control center, the Indian Space Research Organization’s Vikram lander fired its braking rockets shortly after 4 p.m. ET, kicking off what was to have been a 15-minute descent to the surface.

The Chandrayaan-2 lander, carrying eight science instruments and a small, six-wheel rover known as Pragyan, or “Wisdom,” was to have spent two weeks in lunar daylight studying the moon’s polar environment in a mission seen as a demonstration of India’s increasingly sophisticated space prowess.

India is a country filled with millions of low IQ brown people many of who haven’t mastered the skill of shitting in a toilet. And we are expected to believe that they were able to launch a spacecraft that came close to landing on the moon but crashed at the last moment.

I just don’t believe any of this. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want. The whole thing seems like a charade to con people into thinking that these low IQ mud people are capable of achieving what White Europeans have been able to accomplish.

Not buying any of this. My assumption is that there will be a bunch of people debunking this supposed space mission on YouTube.

It's one-stop shopping for almost every kook theory you've ever heard of.

You should go sign up.

But even they have their downfalls. Look at how these ingrates criticize Prez Trump and his vape tweets.

InfoStormer: Donald Trump Issues Clarification on Proposed Vaping Ban

Donald Trump has issued a clarification on his proposed vaping ban. It looks as though he is okay with vaping as a cigarette alternative but just wants to get the unsafe counterfeit vaping shit off the market.

I personally find this totally unreasonable. As I’ve said before, many of my friends have died from vaping. They vaped for a single week and ended up dead.

Vaping products should be totally banned in all 50 states. We need to wage a war on vaping and integrate it into the totally successful war on drugs that Ronald Reagan waged in the 1980s.

People caught selling vaping products should be given the death penalty.

People caught vaping should be put in prison for the of their lives.

That is my official position on this. Children will die if we do not do this.

Maybe you can persuade them to ease up on the vaping=murder stuff.

Ingrates? That's putting it mildly.

Infostormer is "a self- described “alt-right” website created by neo-Nazi Lee Rogers that features racist and anti-Semitic content."

Lol. Chyeah, right. CIA policy to subvert the truth through MSM propaganda and other American institutions it controls -- along with a hundred related tangents, is "lightweight" stuff? Yet it's TooCartoonitive's usual change of distraction and subject (and formatting of it in a pretty baby-blue box) is what *you* found "interesting."

You're usually fearless on weighing in with your opinion. But if those kinds of shiny keys and soggy white-bread pab stimulate your intellect instead of meat, then it apparently speaks to both of you sharing a similar...er... mind-set.

Their policy is to subvert the truth about pretty much everything.

(Former) CIA Director William Casey: "We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false".

Seriously??

Ok. Glad to be of service.

Here is an extremely thorough overview (in only 5 minutes) of the EXTENDED "truth", sloppy deception, and attempted burial of several truths regarding 911 and its aftermath.

If you or anyone else is still taking a "CT!!" position, please do go right ahead and try and refute ANY of this.
