Every American should listen to this podcast before turning on the “news” in the evening or opening the “news” on a computer. Few will. We are losing our willingness to critically analyze government and the media. The courage to do that and refusal to be led like lemmings to the sea is what will keep us safe.
actually lemmings do not jump (or run) off cliffs at all: Disney invented it in a 1958 academy award-winning documentary called White Wilderness - https://animals.howstuffworks.com/mammals/lemmings.htm
but I digress! you're right about the sad, sad state of 'the news', there's painfully few channels or sites where anything resembling unbiased, factual news is presented.
Is there a way to get a transcript of Podcast 164?
Sharyl Attkisson says
Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately at this time we do not have transcripts of podcasts. Sorry!

Sharyl this Article and a New tip.. These different phone and laptops O.S. need to do a Security patch update ? These Various Apps I recently found are being exploited they need a XSS script protection security update patch. What's going on is the bad people are installing and exploiting devices with malicious scripts in background and in some cases staying there until a person does extensive device cleaning each time when used . So to counter this ongoing exploitation a New security patch by Microsof Windows and Chrome and other phone app O.S. systems in needed ?

I don't have time to listen to audio at standard speed. Please prominently display a way to listen to your podcast somewhere with a built-in speed control that would allow 1.5x, 1.75x, and 2x speeds. Thanks.

An entire program/documentary series based on the subject matter of this podcast is greatly needed..

I am a Cold War veteran who served in the Marine Corps during the Cold War ( 1977-1985), and do research into this period of our history.
I would like to contribute to this discussion about media collusion with the Government and the National Security Establishment.
Recently there has been much discussion and controversy over the remaining classified documents concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
I have here a link to a CIA Memo 1035-960 dated 1 April 1967
Title: "Countering Criticism of the Warren Report"
Source; The Mary Farrel Foundation
In it the author openly discusses methods the Agency can use to stifle questions of the Warren Report, including using friendly contacts in the media, using propaganda assets, and refute critics. I know of no document in the public domain which so blatantly displays what's discussed on the podcast.
