CNN PRESIDENT: OUR ‘CREDIBILITY IS HIGHER THAN EVER’

Jeff Zucker defends network after being labeled ‘fake news’ by president-elect

| Infowars.com – JANUARY 18, 2017

CNN President Jeff Zucker is defending his network following remarks from the incoming leader of the free world, who last week labeled the cable news outlet “terrible” and “fake news.”

Zucker told New York Magazine Tuesday CNN’s credibility has never been higher, and asserted President-elect Donald Trump’s treatment of the network has little to no impact on its global influence.

“I think the era of access journalism as we’ve known it is over. It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever. One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran, and Damascus — and that’s CNN.”

Zucker went on to issue an eerie warning to Trump reminding him the network controls how other countries perceive him.

“The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake.”

Zucker also claimed CNN plays “a vital role in our democracy,” and said Trump was attempting to delegitimize the organization.

“It’s just unfortunate that the most powerful person in the world is trying to delegitimize journalism and an organization that plays such a vital role in our democracy. I think he’s entitled to his opinion, but it’s — to use one of his favorite words — sad.”

The network president also said he stood by CNN’s reporting of unsubstantiated allegations last week claiming that Russia had compromising intel on President-elect Donald Trump.

“We didn’t pass judgment on the allegations. We reported we had not been able to corroborate them. But the news was that the two most powerful people in the world had been briefed on the existence of these allegations,” Zucker said.

At a fiery press conference last Wednesday, the president elect took a CNN reporter to task when he persisted in attempting to ask a question.

“Your organization is terrible,” Trump told CNN’s Jim Acosta, who repeatedly asked, “Can you give us a question?”

“Don’t be rude,” Trump responded. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”

Trump had previously made his feelings toward the network clear during a meeting at Trump Tower in November following his successful presidential bid.

At a meeting with several high-profile media executives and journalists described as a “f**ing firing squad,” Trump unleashed his true feelings on the mainstream media.

According to The New York Post, “Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars.”

The president-elect had also previously labeled the network “fake news” via Twitter after it reported the businessman he would maintain a role on the TV show The Apprentice despite being president.

JOURNALISTS WARNED TO PREPARE FOR FERGUSON-STYLE RIOTS DURING TRUMP INAUGURATION

“Violent” anti-Trump protesters could pose physical threat to reporters

| Infowars.com – JANUARY 18, 2017

Reporters covering the inauguration of Donald Trump in Washington DC on Friday have been warned that they need to prepare for riots and possible physical attacks by anti-Trump protesters.

The National Press Photographers Association has issued guidelines to journalists that virtually mirror those sent out during the Ferguson riots in 2014.

Reporters are advised to “maintain situational awareness” and have “an exit plan in case the situation becomes hostile”.

The group also emphasizes that journalists should “move toward the nearest police officer under the assumption that they could protect you from hostile or violent protesters.”

The tone of the warning clearly indicates that anti-Trump rioters are being treated as a bigger physical threat to journalists than overbearing police officers.

Reporters are also told to “openly display press credentials and dress in a professional manner” in order to avoid attacks by anti-Trump protesters.

The Committee to Protect Journalists also released a safety advisory last week urging reporters to “work in pairs,” “plan out an emergency exit” and “document any aggression toward yourself or colleagues”.

Thousands of far-left demonstrators are expected to descend on DC to protest Trump’s inauguration, with some threatening violent civil unrest.

Agitators are openly calling for “chaos” in a bid to shut down the inauguration and create the impression that Trump’s presidency is illegitimate, but opposition groups like Bikers For Trump have vowed to form a “wall of meat” to prevent them from doing so.

Earlier this week, Project VeritasJames O’Keefe exposed how organizers behind the #DisruptJ20 movement were also planning direct attacks on Trump supporters attending inauguration events.

‘Full history’: Secret CIA documents now available online

The CIA has published online nearly 13 million pages of declassified records, including papers on the US role in overthrowing foreign governments and the secret ‘Star Gate’ telepathy project.

*

The range of documents, known as the CREST (CIA Records Search Tool) database, covers an array of materials related to the Vietnam War, Korean War and Cold War. One example is data on the Berlin tunnel project (code-named Operation Gold), which was a joint CIA and British intelligence scheme to carry out surveillance on the Soviet Army HQ in Berlin during the 1950s.

*

In all, more than 12 million documents are accessible, covering the history of the CIA from its creation in the 1940s up to the 1990s – with intelligence officials giving assurances that the half-century of data is in its entirety, with nothing removed.

“None of this is cherry-picked,” CIA spokesperson Heather Fritz Horniak told CNN. “It’s the full history. It’s good and bads.”

For instance, details are provided on the CIA’s participation in the 1973 coup in Chile which saw the rise of the Pinochet regime, as well as on the infamous MK-Ultra project, dubbed the CIA mind control program, which involved experiments – some of them illegal – on human subjects, to develop drugs and procedures for interrogation and torture.

It’s now a couple of decades since the documents were actually declassified, though. The cache was ordered to be released by then-President Bill Clinton in 1995. The papers have been accessible since 2000, but only on four computer terminals at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland.

“Access to this historically significant collection is no longer limited by geography,” Joseph Lambert, the CIA’s information management director, said in a press release.

*

Over the decades about 1.1 million pages from the database were printed out by historians and journalists, but the CIA banned the actual materials from publication.

“Declassifying all the documents in the world doesn’t accomplish anything if people can’t get access to them,” Steve Aftergood, the director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists, told BuzzFeed.

The inability to access the database online prompted outrage, and in 2014, MuckRock, a non-profit news organization, filed a Freedom of Information Act to gain access to the documents, but the CIA said it would take at least six years to release the papers. Journalists and researchers then launched a popular Kickstarter campaign to digitize the documents, collecting over $15,000 – surpassing the stated crowdfunding goal and posting some of the papers online.

The CIA made small redactions to the documents, but solely to protect sources and methods that could damage national security, CIA spokesperson Horniak said.

The agency was aiming to publish the documents by the end of 2017, but finished the work ahead of schedule.

“We’ve been working on this for a very long time and this is one of the things I wanted to make sure got done before I left. Now you can access it from the comfort of your own home,” said outgoing CIA director of information Lambert.

The agency continues to review documents for declassification, so the treasure trove has not been unearthed in full, and there’s definitely more to follow.

OBAMA SNUBS SNOWDEN

Earnest said the “disclosures by Edward Snowden were far more serious and far more dangerous” than those of Manning

mcclatchydc.com – JANUARY 18, 2017

Obama’s actions also raise questions about the future of Edward Snowden, the former contractor for the National Security Agency whose unauthorized revelations in 2013 showed vast surveillance by the U.S. intelligence apparatus, some of it on trusted leaders of allied nations. Snowden’s leaks also underscored how the NSA swept up telephone records within the United States in apparent violation of U.S. law. Snowden is in asylum in Moscow. 

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest noted recently the “stark differences” between Manning and Snowden, whose supporters who have been pushing for clemency.

“Chelsea Manning is somebody who went through the military criminal justice process, was exposed to due process, was found guilty, was sentenced for her crimes, and she acknowledged wrongdoing,” Earnest said. “Mr. Snowden fled into the arms of an adversary, and has sought refuge in a country that most recently made a concerted effort to undermine confidence in our democracy.”

“So I think the situation of these two individuals is quite different. I can’t speculate at this point about to what degree that will have an impact on the President’s consideration of clemency requests. But I know that there’s a temptation because the crimes were relatively similar to lump the two cases together. But there are some important differences, including the scale of the crimes that were committed and the consequences of their crimes.”

Earnest said the “disclosures by Edward Snowden were far more serious and far more dangerous” than those of Manning.

Supporters hailed the commutation as an act of humanity.
