Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites.
Those who say the truth are tagged as “conspiracy theorists”.
In relation to the corona crisis, the media is involved in sustaining a Worldwide fear campaign.
Several medical doctors who have spoken out against the official Coronavirus narrative have been fired.
Globalresearch.ca has been tagged by Canada’s media as a source of disinformation.
Our analysis confirms that the mainstream media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down.
They are the unspoken architects of “Fake News”. The Lie becomes the Truth.
One area of routine distortion is the use of fake videos and images by the mainstream media.

Four Notorious Cases of Media Distortion
These are four examples and there are many more. The manipulation of videos and images is routine. In some cases, these manipulations are revealed by readers, independent media and social media. In most cases they go undetected. And when they are revealed, the media will say “sorry” we apologize: they will then point to technical errors. “we got the wrong video”.
What is important to emphasize is that these media distortions are invariably deliberate.
1. Coverage of CNN 2008 Riots in Tibet
Chinese Cops with khaki uniforms and Indian Style Moustaches
The video footage, which accompanied CNN’s John Vause’s 2008 report, had nothing to do with China. The policemen were not Chinese, but Indian cops in khaki uniforms from the Northeastern State of Himachal Pradesh, India. Viewers were led to believe that demonstrations inside China were peaceful and that people were being arrested by Chinese cops.
Chinese Cops in Khaki Uniforms?

Are these Chinese Cops from Gansu Province or Lhasa, the Tibetan capital, as suggested by CNN’s John Vause’s Report?
REPORT ON CHINA, MARCH 14, 2008

Their khaki uniforms with berets seem to bear the imprint of the British colonial period.
Khaki colored uniforms were first introduced in the British cavalry in India in 1846.
Khaki means “dust” in Hindi and Persian.
Moreover, the cops with khaki uniforms and moustache do not look Chinese.
They are Indian cops.
The videotape shown on March 14, 2008 by CNN is not from China (Gansu Province or Lhasa, Tibet’s Capital). The video was taken in the State of Himachal Pradesh, India. The videotape of the Tibet protest movement in India was used in the CNN report on the Tibet protest movement within China. CNN got its countries screwed up.
“CNN anchor Aaron Brown seems to struggle to make sense of what he is seeing one minute after announcing that WTC Building 7, whose erect facade is clearly visible in his view towards the Trade Center, has or is collapsing.” (see below)
Coincidence? That Same Day, There was A Second Fake Surveillance Video at Brussels Maelbeek Metro Station
The terror attack in the afternoon of March 22 2016 at Brussels Maelbeek Metro station was reported by mainstream media including CNN.
In these reports, video footage from a 2011 terror attack in Minsk, Belarus was used by network TV and online media to describe what was happening in the metro station at the time of the attacks.
According to the Independent:
CCTV footage that was shared after the Brussels attacks, believed to show video from inside Maelbeek Metro station, has been proven fake.
As news emerged of the third explosion in the Belgian capital, which targeted the station situated near EU offices, many began sharing what they believed to be footage of the bombing.
However it was soon discovered that the video in fact came from the Minsk Metro bombing of 2011 that killed 15 and injured over 200 people.
The Independent’s report is based on a fallacy. It was the mainstream media that published the Moscow and Minsk video footages. It was thanks to incisive social media blog reports that the use of fake videos by the mainstream media was revealed.
The more fundamental question: two cases of fake videos:
Can we trust the mainstream media reports concerning the Brussels terror attacks?
Comparisons: Brussels, 22 March 2016 versus Minsk, 11 April 2011. Same video footage
Here is a screenshot of video footage broadcast on network TV and on the internet depicting the explosion in the Metro in Brussels, March 22, 2016
The alleged video footage of the CCTV surveillance camera, Brussel Maelbeek Metro Station (subsequently removed). The CC surveillance camera is under control of the Metro security authorities. (screenshot above)
Now Compare the above to the screenshot of the Minsk April 2011 attacks followed by full-length video.
The lies and fabrications of the MSM are not the result of “sloppy journalism”.
They are deliberate and are intended to mislead the public.
The mainstream media routinely uses fake images and videos in its coverage of the war on Syria.
The campaign against alternative and independent media seeks to limit freedom of expression.
