Corporate media, also known as Mainstream Media (MSM), is corrupt to the core.

The US government enjoys tremendous leeway to basically make things up, especially now that it operates beneath the protective umbrella of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) [i], but this hasn't encouraged reporters to vet sources, and to double source. Certainly, it isn't happening enough to warrant any reasonable person to think that MSM news stories of importance are accurate.

This is no trifling matter. Under international law, much of what passes as "news" in the West is prohibited [ii]. It is dangerous, and it continues to engineer popular consent for what is essentially an on-going holocaust [iii] in the Middle East.

Reporters should be vetting "non-governmental organizations" (NGOs) rather than blindly accepting the messaging and amplifying it throughout the world. Writer Vanessa Beeley, who is a member of the Steering Committee at Syria Solidarity Movement International, reports that these NGOs form a "soft power complex" that serves to advance imperial hegemony (rather than peace and prosperity).

A compilation of these questionable organizations and individuals is provided by writer/photographer/journalist Eva Bartlett [iv]. They include:

Avaaz

Amnesty International

Hand in Hand for Syria
