The former newspaper editor Udo Ulfkotte, who exposed CIA, has been found dead at an age of only 56. The underreporting of his book Bought Journalists, for example in Sweden, is a telling illustration of how most of today’s mainstream media work: To ignore, ridicule or exclude those who try to try to report some of the most inconvenient truths of our time.
From history, such as World War II, we learned the importance of air supremacy. One definition of it is the “degree of air superiority wherein the opposing air force is incapable of effective interference.” Now we must realize the analog concept of media supremacy and the importance of it. Obviously, the USA holds the media supremacy in many countries, which is key to enable them to do what they want.
Ulfkotte still had the courage to speak out. His book became a bestseller. In case you doubt what he wrote, listen to the CIA’s secret propaganda war in Sweden, a documentary by Swedish Radio (in Swedish). When a long time has passed, mainstream media seem more capable to report about such sensitive issues. If the CIA was doing this in the 1950s and 1960s, do you think they have stopped or have developed it further?
