Media Scoundrels Endorse Sham Libyan Election

Democracy was not on the ballot.

by Stephen Lendman

In their book titled "Demonstration Elections," Edward Herman and Frank Broadhead described US-staged elections.  

They're manipulated to consolidate American power and influence public opinion to believe sham processes are legitimate.

Herman and Broadhead defined what goes on as:

"A circus held in a client state to assure the population of the home country that their intrusion is well received."

"The results are guaranteed by an adequate supply of bullets provided in advance." They're freely used to achieve desired outcomes.

The authors' main theme was that "elections held under conditions of military occupation and extensive pre-election 'pacification' " aren't free.

They're conducted to install client regimes. Those in charge are pro-Western puppets, not legitimate leaders.

US-style democracy is engineered. It's illusory, not real. Force backs it to assert control.

Elections are instruments of US dominance. Selling deception is crucial. Media scoundrels regurgitate the Big Lie. Herman says "the media leopard never changes its spots."

Managed news substitutes for truth and full disclosure. Readers and viewers are deceived and betrayed. It happens repeatedly at home and abroad.

Libya's July 7 sham elections are the latest example. Democracy was absent from the ballot. Puppet National Transitional Council (NTC) leaders manipulated the process. On Tuesday, votes were still being counted.
