The political Zionist movement absolutely controls media on the Western side and in fact globally and it goes all the way down to Australia; you have got far eastern and you have got Indian television. It just goes on and on.”
A political commentator tells Press TV that the Zionist movement absolutely controls the media in the United States and Western countries. The European satellite provider Eutelsat, owned by the Zionist Michel de Rosen, has ordered Nilesat to pull the plug on Iran’s English-language news channel, Press TV, as part of his war on freedom of speech. Eutelsat’s secretary Edoudardo Silverio has written a letter to Nilesat authorities, demanding them to stop broadcasting Iranian channels, including Press TV. In an interview with Press TV, Scott Rickard, a former American Intelligence Linguist in Florida, shares his thoughts regarding the issue. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview. Press TV: How does the banning of Iranian TV channels and radio channels mix with Europe’s claim of free speech? Rickard: It is obviously a chance for them to cover up the truth coming out of world media. Thankfully, Press TV gives voice to the voiceless like myself and they do not like it. I mean, Press TV puts out some extremely controversial pieces that expose the underbelly of Western censorship. The censorship is actually happening in my society. Most people watch TV in the United States and they know nothing about world affairs. Thankfully, stations like Press TV are giving the chance for people to talk about things in the open. Now saying that, there are guys like Daniel Pipes for example; he was on a program a few weeks ago. Daniel Pipes has something along the lines of the reason that we are censoring Iran and this is ridiculous; it is a joke. I challenge Daniel Pipes to debate this anytime. But the reason they are censoring Iran is because Iran is censoring our materials going in. Well, first of all, I do not blame Iran if they are censoring American materials. We have the biggest production of propaganda in the world. I mean, National Geographic last night was running a Seal Team Six program that was just horrible. I mean, it was incredible propaganda about what happened with the fake Osama bin Laden take down. So the fact is Americans watch 35 hours of television every week and they know nothing about what the world affairs are and what is going on. So I completely disagree with the fact that this censorship that Iran is supposedly doing on the West is worse than what the West is doing to its own society. It is incredible. Press TV: It is interesting we see a lot of Israeli influence in this chain of censorship. Just how much Israeli power is there, in the Western media? Rickard: It is incredible. I mean, the political Zionist movement absolutely controls media on the Western side and in fact globally and it goes all the way down to Australia; you have got far eastern and you have got Indian television. It just goes on and on. The British Empire was very effective at controlling the media. I mean they have been hammering Iran for over a hundred years, overthrowing their governments and they are doing all kinds of criminal warfare in and around the area. These governments go after mostly brown societies. You look how rarely they fight the white societies but they are constantly in Africa and the Middle East and South Asia, all over Southeast Asia. I mean, there is an incredible amount of basically double-edged media. The media constantly is not criticizing the West for their incredible imperialism and terror around the world. Press TV: And do you think we will see similar events happen in the future and so the ultimate question is that what will the future have and hold for free speech? Rickard: It is not looking good. I mean you have an incredible control. One of the better guys in the United States [I am] following is Mickey Huff with Project Censored. He talks a lot about censorship. There is a lot of censorship in the United States and there is a whole lot of problem with that and it has been going on for over a hundred years. So the problem we run into is that most people are not paying attention and they are over-entertained and they are very misinformed in the Western societies. So until more focus by small groups of people that are seeing the problem until that focus becomes more censored and they start working closer together, a lot more people will continue to be fooled by Western media.
