‘Winston Churchill rightly explained that “(a) lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Today, of course, it circulates everywhere instantly.
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Germany’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, once said:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
He added that “truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Corporate media manipulators love a big story they can hype, distort, and falsify to attract large audiences supportively for the worst imperial crimes.
In fact, the bigger the event, the worse the reporting, sacrificing truth for managed news and opinions everyone should understand and avoid.
Distinguished scholars like David Ray Griffin exposed the 9/11 lie in his exhaustive research and writings. In numerous books, articles, and lectures, he provided convincing evidence about an inside job, not an attack carried out by “crazed Arabs.”
In an April 5, 2006 lecture titled, “9/11: The Myth and the Reality,” he concluded saying:
“It would seem, for many reasons, that the official story of 9/11, which has served as a religious Myth in the intervening years (and still does), is a myth in the pejorative sense of a story that does not correspond to reality.”
It was Griffin’s polite way of calling it a Big Lie, the biggest of our time.
