From Holding The Line:

y Barry Wheedon

Are journalists the most clueless people in society?

As a bitter newspaper hack of many years, I have come to realise the answer is yes.

Most journalists never look outside of the mainstream bubble for information and they also tend to repeat what they are told by authority.

But they also don’t have time to do any digging or investigating.

It’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to holding authority to account and has led to a big drop in public trust in the legacy media.

At their core, newspapers are money-making machines, especially so for the vast majority owned by large media groups like Reach, Newsquest and National World.

But within these titles are journalists who genuinely do want to serve their communities and ensure corruption and wrongdoing are brought to the public’s attention.

So how have these individuals and the disinformation machines they work for got things so wrong for such a long time?

Fear is the main reason and it works on many levels. This fear keeps them ignorant, it stops them asking difficult questions, it stops them submitting challenging story ideas, and it makes them inclined to believe what everyone else is saying, even if they know deep down that something is not right.

For most of my career I was under that spell of fear and it was liberating to break free from it although that has been frightening in itself.

Publicly questioning established narratives in the office and on my social media accounts has been met with criticism, scorn and – most recently – silence from my colleagues.

These same colleagues build their understanding of the world from the television and newspapers where established narratives of the world are constructed and embedded in their psyche.

What can be done about this issue when gaping holes in their knowledge have allowed wars to take place on false pretenses and for freedoms to be sacrificed willingly in return for ‘public safety’?

The answer is simple. Do not trust anything you read in newspapers or watch on television. Their currency is in propaganda, censorship, and lying on an industrial scale.

A version of reality has been created by the legacy news that is so far from the truth that it has become impossible for those who believe that reality to break free.

To do so would be too traumatic and therefore – subconsciously or otherwise – journalists who create and believe in this false reality do all they can to protect it.

The human suffering that has been allowed to pass, and the lies that have been repeated again and again without challenge, are unforgivable for those who are wise in the ways of the world.

But the situation we are in is not a new phenomenon, although it has become more acute since early 2020.

Turning off the television or at least treating its talking heads with extreme scepticism is an essential step for any journalist seriously wanting to serve their communities.

Journalists must take that fear holding them back and replace it with a fear of what society could become if they continue to operate only within the false realities they have helped create.

  1. Do you want to know what is really behind the fake coronavirus pandemic, so-called vaccines and the war in Ukraine? To understand current events, you must first learn the history. The world's biggest secret is that there have been tremendous global disasters in the past that decimated populations and caused the collapse of empires. Chronicles from the 14th and 6th centuries describe events as if from a disaster movie. They write of "an extraordinary earthquake over the whole world", "poisonous earthy exhalation", "fire falling from the sky for 16 days", "falling stars" (meteorites), "the sun became dark for 18 months", "hailstones of incredible size", "lightnings that killed thousands of men and animals", droughts and torrential rains destroying crops and causing famines so great that people resorted to cannibalism, and "a pestilence which spread over almost the entire world" and "swept away third part of the human race". And all this was happening within just a few years. These global disasters were caused by the impact of the Sun's magnetic field, which suddenly increases once every several hundred years. When this happens, the Earth is struck by violent cataclysms. Unfortunately, the next such catastrophe will occur in 2023-2025. Massive earthquakes will destroy entire countries. Asteroids will fall to the Earth. Powerful geomagnetic storms will cause long-term power outages. Sudden climate change all over the world will lead to widespread famine. Governments are afraid of a public panic and an uprising. They are going to instigate a world war to keep themselves in power through terror. They will allow a deadly pandemic to spread that will kill a few billion people. The media, both mainstream and alternative, will say that this is a man-made crisis. They will say that the disease is caused by radiation or a virus from a bio lab. They want you not to find out what the disease is and how to cure it. Earthquakes and climate change will be explained by HAARP. They will say the asteroids are nuclear bombs, and the power outage is due to a cyber attack or EMP. Do not believe it. Similar disasters have happened in the past. This is not just another conspiracy theory, but a cycle of global disasters confirmed by chroniclers' records. You find this hard to believe because you have been fooled by historians all your life and the media has programmed you to disregard such warnings. Please do not judge this hastily, but examine the evidence yourself. All information can be found at Please read and warn others.
