It's Like Interviewing Nazis About the Falling Crime Rate.

"Political language -- and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists -- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. "- George Orwell, Politics and the English Language
Today, after listening to Talk of the Nation (TOTN), on the decline of crime rates, any doubts I had about NPR being as much an inaccurate, misleading and run of the mill propaganda outlet as Fox News, are gone.  

None other than the chairman of the murky criminal corporation that is Kroll - the privatized CIA Inc., who profited massively from the horror that took place on 9/11, who merged with the secretive industry giant, Marsh McLennan (World Trade Center tenant with 1,700 employees where plane impacted), who made a killing on pre-9/11 inside trading, and who capitalized on the heightened corporate fears of terrorism created by 9/11 - explained this apparent decline in crime to TOTN host, Neal Conan.
It is, in fact, security firms like Kroll Associates, Burns Security, Teg, Wackenhut, and their ilk that should garner our interest at least as much as the web of conservative think tanks that have welded in place the parameters of "mainstream" debate - for it is through these very firms that the former stars of law enforcement have gone through the revolving door into the lucrative private sector. It is a world where former military types mix with various operatives of the CIA, FBI, DEA and any number of alphabet soup agencies charged with the security of our nation.
Could it be that this "decline" in crime may have something to do with the fact that the thugs are now in charge?  And isn't it funny how NPR covers the so-called declining crime rate; however, totally failed to cover  the NYPD police thugs, including the pepper spraying of several young women standing on the sidewalk while penned in by orange netting, during Occupy Wall Street.  You see how that works.  The thugs are the law.

So, with the exception of "Fresh Air" and a few local broadcasts, NPR is now just another conformist militaristic propaganda machine. Oh sure, they claim they are "listener-sponsored", but in reality, NPR/PBS is in large part financed by grants from corporate donors. Bland, politically-correct, and totally compromised by their sponsors, that's about all you'll get tuning into public radio. So, what's the difference between this and commercial broadcasting? Nothing. All news is now bought and paid for by corporate-think.
Everything in Nazi Germany was clean and orderly; there were no slums; the trains ran on time. By 1938, the crime rate was at an all-time low because repeat offenders were being sent to a concentration camp after they had completed their second sentence. Anyone who did not have a permanent address and some visible means of support was hauled off the Dachau and put to work.
Once again, we can thank Ronald Reagan for it is he who repealed the Fairness Doctrine.
