Wind River Range, Wyoming – 22:00 Mountain Standard Time
The most important service rendered by the press and the magazines is that of educating people to approach printed matter with distrust. – Samuel Butler
This section, in my humble opinion, is so appropriate for what is happening… RIGHT NOW. Turn on the news and listen to the battle over fake news. Trump speaks for himself, but the media – all of them – have so lost their way it is almost unbelievable.
Before I go any further, let me state that I am apolitical. I lost faith in the political parties long ago, and, by extension, governments. So, whatever you read here or in my books is not in support of any political group. If anything, I am doing what the press is supposed to do: be unbiased. I call a ball a ball and a strike a strike, and I laugh when I hear arguments about “my scumbag is better than your scumbag.”
Now, back to the behind the scenes commentary.
The main character in this scene is Roger Bernays, and he is loosely based off Edward Louis James Bernays (I encourage you to read up on this guy). In order for The Order to come to power, they must sway global public opinion to be in favor of a one world government, and this is Roger Bernays’ role.
This scene shows Roger holding a media-only party at his mountain getaway in Wyoming. Why are the press there? Who doesn’t like an all-expense paid trip to a plush and private mountain lodge in the Rockies? There’s nothing wrong with that… is there? Really, who would be upset if all the sports referees in the U.S. attended a party put on by the head of the Las Vegas Bookies’ Association? There’s no conflict of interest there, is there?
Is someone holding a huge all-expense paid party for all the reporters to sway their opinions or to point them in certain direction? I don’t know, but turn on the news. There’s no way you can convince me that the news media is not on someone’s payroll, one way or another. The majority of the American press is in the DNC’s pocket, and they’re not even trying to hide it. And then you have Fox News being the RNC’s mouthpiece.
Whatever happened to the press just reporting the facts? Roger Bernays happened.
Think about it, if the press is discredited and the people lose faith in them, who’s left to keep a check on the government?
