HASBARA; CONSPIRACIES; LEVESON
Lord Justice Leveson wants to curb the UK press.
Press inquiry condemns 'outrageous' national press
"It was reported in the media that Leveson had attended two parties in the prior 12 months at the London home of Matthew Freud, a PR executive married to Elisabeth Murdoch, the daughter of Rupert Murdoch." 
'Hasbara' journalist Brendan O'Neill.
In the Daily Telegraph, online, thereisagod commented on an article by Brendan O'Neill entitled:
Murdoch, Jews, lizards, Lefties and Leveson: the spread of British conspiracy politics.
(Telegraph.co.uk - Brendan O'Neill blog - 27 Nov 2012)
"Creating powerful twilight language such as 'conspiracy theories' is just another method currently used for closing down debate on sensitive subjects by creating taboos that allow the media and politicians to avoid answering reasonable questions...
"Real power is NEVER challenged by the press nor our so-called representatives in parliament.
"People understand that the trust agreement between MP's and those that supposedly appoint them (i.e. us) is broken.
"We understand that our interests are served only when these interests coincide with corporate/banking interest.
"Do the public really wish for perpetual war?
"This is exactly what we get..."

Hasbara means Israeli propaganda, and it is often produced by crypto-Jews.
Brendan O'Neill is a Telegraph hasbara blogger, according to Jews sans frontieres.
So, what did O'Neill write in his Telegraph blog?
"In the current issue of the New Statesman, Peter Wilby slams the Daily Mail for spreading a "conspiracy theory" about the Leveson Inquiry.
"He says the Mail's claim that... Common Purpose has effectively infiltrated Leveson, with an eye for achieving its long-standinggoal of muzzling the press...
"The Mail might as well have published an article about 'ten-foot lizards' controlling Leveson, says Wilby.
"Yet flick forward a few pages, and there is Mr Wilby again heaping praise upon Labour MP Tom Watson's book Dial M for Murdoch...
"It describes how Murdoch's 'invisible networks' created a 'shadow state' in Britain, which controlled virtually every aspect of public life.
"You know what the sounds like?
"Yep, a big fat conspiracy theory...
"So one starts to fantasise that there must be a tiny but unbelievably influential clique of lizards/Jews/bankers/annoying Lefties/Murdoch drones...
"Isn’t it time we grew up?
"Murdoch did not control Britain from a yacht in the Mediterranean. And Leveson is not a plot..."
The man who speaks for the BBC?
Some more comments on O'Neill's article:
"I assume, then, that you consider yourself to be a 'coincidence theorist' or just a mere Liberal Fascist?
"And that the BBC inquiry into Jimmy Savile scandal 'to stay secret' is not people in power conspiring?"
"The flavour of the current epoch is that the innocent are guilty and the guilty (if you are powerful) innocent.
"Examples are Savile, Smith, Hillsborough Disaster, The Cardiff Three, MPs expenses, Blairs lies on Iraq etc....
"And their is no point havng anti-corruption units to deal with the sorry mess if they are corrupt themselves.
"Nobody believes or trusts anybody anymore. Democracy has had its day.........Can you hear the boots marching."
"Glad we've had Leveson to put to bed the idea that News International had a hold over politicians and police officers. Almost as silly as the idea that the security services were plotting against Harold Wilson..."
