How Lobbies, Intelligence Services and Advertisers Dictate
Mainstream Media Content
by Global Research Editors
21st Jun 2015

Recently, several journalists who worked in the (institutional) media exposed its corrupt nature,  
weighing in on the growing mistrust it inspires. We hope the following will inspire you to support  
independent media.

Former chief political commentator of the Telegraph, Peter Oborne, resigned from the newspaper  
because it would not publish articles on HSBC for fear of losing advertising revenues. The bank is  
known for money-laundering for the Mexican drug cartels as well as its involvement in tax evasion  

In an opinion piece called “Why I resigned from the Telegraph” he wrote:

“The coverage of HSBC in Britain’s   Telegraph   is a fraud on its readers. If major newspapers  
allow corporations to influence their content for fear of losing advertising revenue, democracy itself  
is in peril…From the start of 2013 onwards stories critical of HSBC were discouraged. HSBC  
suspended its advertising with the   Telegraph… HSBC, as one former   Telegraph   executive told  
me, is “the advertiser you literally cannot afford to offend” (Peter Oborne, Why I have resigned from  
the Telegraph, Open Democracy, February 17, 2015)

When it comes to powerful lobbies’ influence on media content, the Zionist lobby is very well known  
for accusing journalists and editors of anti-Semitism and imposing its own propaganda. Even so-
called progressive newspapers such as   The Guardian   are subject to Zionist propaganda.       

David Cronin writes:

I submitted an exposé of how the   pro-Israel lobby   operates in   Brussels. While waiting to find out  
if the piece would be used, I phoned   Matt Seaton, who had taken over as comment editor. We had  
a pleasant conversation but Seaton stressed that he regarded the subject as sensitive.

I, then, modified the piece to make its tone less polemical. Still, it was not published…
Cronin decided to write about his experience when he realized that The Guardian was much less  
reluctant to offer platforms to Israeli politicians and their Zionist propaganda:

“Daniel Taub, Israel’s ambassador to the UK … uses a quote attributed to Golda Meir, Israel’s prime  
minister from 1969 to 1974, to hit back at aid agencies who accuse Israel of impeding Gaza’s  
reconstruction: “We will only have peace when our enemies love their children more than they hate  
ours.” The inference that Palestinians hate Israelis more than they love their children is a racist  
caricature… In February, the paper gave Yair Lapid, until recently Israel’s finance minister, a    
platform   to describe calls for a   cultural boycott   of Israel as “shallow and lacking in coherence.  
(David Cronin How The Guardian Told Me to Steer Clear of Palestine, Electronic Intifada, 11 March  

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung‘s former editor Udo Ulfkotte recently published a book called  
“Bought Journalists. How Politicians, Secret Services and High Finance Control the Mass Media”  
(Gekaufte Journalisten), in which he explains how journalists manipulate the masses for powerful  

Saying he believes a medical condition gives him only a few years to live, and that he is filled with  
remorse, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, the editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany’s largest  
newspapers, said in an interview that he accepted news stories written and given to him by the CIA  
and published them under his own name. Ulfkotte said the aim of much of the deception was to  
drive nations toward war. (Ralph Lopez, Editor of Major German Newspaper Says He Planted  
Stories for the CIA, Reader Supported News, February 04, 2015)

Another book stirred some controversy lately, Au service de la République, (Serving the Republic)  
Roger Auque’s memoirs published posthumously. Auque, a well-known journalist who worked for  
major French magazines as well as the French Canadian public network Radio-Canada, admitted: “I  
was paid by the Israeli secret services to lead operations in Syria, using reporting as a cover.” Le  
Figaro, one of France’s leading magazines for which he worked,   writes that “he also offered his  
services to the DGSE, (the French CIA) before becoming an object of interest for the CIA.”

Contrary to Ulfkotte, who’s filled with remorse, the French reporter was “not at all ashamed of this  

These few examples show once again the importance of independent media and how the  
corporate mainstream media is nothing but a mouthpiece for powerful interests who do  
not want you to be informed but rather want to manufacture consent and keep you in the  
dark about important issues.

* Embrace no-longer views broadcast news and newspaper media as "mainstream" as fewer and  
fewer people watch or read or believe in these outlets. All future reference to them by Embrace will  
be: "institutional"  outlets.- i.e. stagnant and unchanging, representing old established political  
ideologies and not putting integrity or "truth" first.
