‘Deafening media silence’ on global protests

There is a “deafening” media silence on protests around the world protesting against the elites, according to Webster University Assistant Professor Ralph Schoellhammer.

“They are significant protests – we’re talking about 30 000 people in The Netherlands,” Prof Schoellhammer said, adding that the media and political campaign across the west against “disinformation” is part of a broader attempt to “undermine” organized protests against the agenda of the elites.

“That the best way to prevent the pushback from large numbers of people is if they don’t know that anything is going on.”

“Think about the situation of the truckers in Canada when they pulled their bank accounts… so this is undermining the possibility of those people to organize. “It’s what interest groups, what these players do – they see there is something coming that could be a threat to their power so they try to do something to undermine it.”

  1. Uh Oh. Another crap video link. SkyNews is well known to be a trashy media source. Watchers is losing credibility.

    Occupy Wall Street and Extinction Rebellion were/are legitimate protest movements. Black Lives Matter had organizational problems, but was also an organic mass protest against police racism and violence. The media focused on the arson, not the millions of peaceful marchers. The newly forming labor unions in corporate America tends to get overlooked by corporate media.

    All that said, the TEA party, Vaccine protests and Stop the Steal were pure Astroturf, and funded by the elites. Do your research. Follow the money. Look into Cambridge Analytica if you want to see how right-wing zombies are made and consent is manufactured.

    1. And yet another one with their head stuck up their rear end. You have it all backwards! Do work on your own credibility before knocking someone else’s.

      1. This lame video raises and relates two subjects: protests and media.

        Questions. How did you feel about the millions who marched against the Iraq war? Wouldn’t it have been nice if the citizenry had stopped that horror show? After the 2008 financial crash, did you support Occupy Wall Street? That was a decentralized populist protest outraged at the 1% elite. Were you ashamed the way the government stomped out that movement? How did you feel about the 2020 Black Lives Matter marches? Do you remember the police nightly beating peaceful protesters? How do you feel about non-violent environmental pipeline activists being charged as terrorists?

        I am concerned that there has been so little in the way of peace marches, regarding Ukraine. And it’s unfortunate that while we bicker about the often least important issues (masks and pronouns) the harsh reality of climate catastrophe worsens. Our food is at risk! Outside of nuclear war, there is no greater global threat. The documenting of weather disasters is a part of why Watchers appeals to me.

        As for the media… Everyone is responsible to themselves to seek out and sort out good information from bad information. How much do you know about your news sources? Do you question them? How easily are you manipulated? Do you fact check information before you share it? The correctness of your understanding of the actual world depends on it. Is that important to you? What if your opinions are based on lies?

        Ironically, there is a conspiracy to RW media itself. It is specifically designed to create a fog of absurdity – to mask the truth and stoke the culture war. Murdoch, the Mercers, the Alt-Right and Kooky Q. The Cambridge Analytica algorithm owns you. Credulity leads to delusion. Don’t be a chump.

  2. The Global Revolution is on the Horizon and its Greatest Benefit will be the Vanishing of Fake Science

    The majority of people do not know that the greatest problem facing humanity today is the widespread of fake science. That is not only because of the amount of money wasted or looted by a tiny percentage of evil people, but also, fake science is an infinite obstacle against scientific progress and advanced technologies that can solve most of the economic and political problems facing our society right now. However, there is no way that fake science which has been accumulated for decades can be removed without global revolution that can lead to huge political and economic reforms and as a result removing the corruption and special interest groups in the scientific institutions in the Western countries, especially in the US

  3. All of the ‘We, the People’ uprising, across the globe, IS being covered by the REAL NEWS Outlets. You know the ones……the REAL NEWS outlets that the FAKE MSM like to call ‘conspiracy theorists’ and ‘tin-foil-hat-wearers’, ect. And there are PLENTY of REAL News outlets, out there. And they can be found on the NO CENSOR social media sites; like Brighteon; BrighteonSocial, Gab, Odysee; MeWe; Minds; GabTV; BitChute; Rumble; GETTR. And well as censored.news, InfoWars, Banned.video, ect.
