The internet is an intellectual jungle, where lies and liars are quickly exposed and savaged. That is the new reality. This is survival of the fittest, which means survival of the most accurate, where winning by spending enough money to force people to believe as they are told to believe is an obsolete relic of a bygone age.The downfall of WikiLeaks illustrates that principle.
A large amount of expense and effort was spent to build up WikiLeaks’ reputation as a whistle blower site, even though there were older and more established whistle blower websites in operation. The first inkling that there might be a problem was that ABCNNBBCBS was pumping what a “dangerous” website WikiLeaks was, by way of attracting attention to the place.
And, as it the classic case of a bait-and-switch propaganda campaign, WikiLeaks did leak out some damaging info early on to build credibility. But whereas a TV newsreader can build an audience by being truthful, then start to lie to them with impunity, any blog news source is only as credible as their last release, because of the interactivity of the medium. Trust in WikiLeaks, years in the building, appears to have vanished almost overnight, both with the inclusion of the long dead Osama Bin Laden in the leaked Afghan logs, and Julian Assange’s open disdain for the 9-11 truth movement.
The environment has changed. The old methods no longer work. Those entities that cannot evolve and adapt to the new reality must go extinct. WikiLeaks just demonstrated that hard fact.
Wiki-Leaks Is Israel
By Gordon Duff
Now “Wiki-Leaks” is busy selling phony bin Laden stories, having the long dead Osama humiliating the CIA by running around villages in Afghanistan selling vacuum cleaners.
What is our “leak” site really about?
This is a dead news cycle.
The World Cup is over, lots of people on holiday and no major stories.
Only in a dead news period like this,
as Oliver Stone pointed out,
could the Israeli controlled media dump a pile of lame rumors mixed in with box loads of chickenfeed,
passing it off as the story of the century.
