EU Censors Alternative News in Bid to Dominate Narrative







Western media quietly attempts to censor growing global opposition, begins with Iranian media.

Tony Cartalucci, Contributor
Activist Post

Iran's Press TV reported in their article, "Press TV viewers slam EU move to ban Iran channels as illegal, hypocritical,"
that "Press TV viewers have condemned as illegal and hypocritical the
ban imposed by the European officials on the broadcast of several
Iranian satellite channels."

Nearly no mention is made in the Western media regarding the blatant
act of censorship - an act that runs contra to all perceived notions of
"Western values," and an act that directly undermines the narratives
of the West supporting "freedom" and "democracy" around the globe.

The West has spent billions trying to leverage "freedom of speech" and
"human rights" as a means to undermine, destabilize, overthrow, and
replace governments around the world, from the US-engineered Eastern
European "color-revolutions" after the fall of the Soviet Union, to the
latest US-engineered "Arab Spring," and all across Southeast Asia.
Now with the West pursuing its own campaign of censorship, it is clear
that these "values" were merely selectively and opportunistically
manipulated.

The news has been buried under reports regarding a new round of sanctions
passed by the EU which was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize even
while pursuing multiple wars across the globe, including continuing
operations in Libya, the subversion of Syria,
and a decade long occupation of Afghanistan which sees weekly civilian
massacres by NATO air strikes on both sides of the Afghan-Pakistani
border. In fact, the most recent NATO atrocity occurred not even a week
ago, killing 3 children in the Helmand province. Of course this was
absent in Western headlines, but it did make headlines in Iran's Press TV, and indicates a more realistic explanation to the EU's decision to ban the Iranian news service.

Clearly the EU has no qualms over endangering civilian lives - its
concerns over "human rights" are a selectively applied value it uses
against its enemies with demonstrably no intention of holding itself to
similar standards. Now, the EU has applied this same selective
application of supposed "Western values" to "freedom of speech,"
curtailing it when that speech endangers its own interests, and pursuing
"freedom" when it advances their agenda. And it is this hypocrisy that
the increasingly popular Press TV news service has been illustrating,
as a counterweight to the uniformly biased and compromised Western
press.

It was US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who stated
that censorship incurred "long-term economic and social costs," with
oppression leading to "civil unrest and not security." Many Western
politicians executing corporate-financier driven policy
have stated that a regime's pursuit of censorship was a sign of
weakness and fear - an indicator that its opposition was gaining ground
and that more overt, visible, even desperate measures needed to be
implemented.

Censorship,
according to the West's own narrative, is part of a self-defeating
cycle where legitimacy and the mandate to lead increasingly is fading.

With that consideration in mind, the censorship of Iran's Press TV
should be a sign that Iran's efforts to balance global public perception
skewed by the vast resources of Wall Street and London are succeeding.
Along with Russia Today (RT), Press TV has provided nations who aspire
to live in a mulipolar world where the primacy of the nation-state
prevails, a model to follow in combating the unwarranted power and
influence of Western media houses.

Above all, it should be noted that a key contributing factor to Press TV
and RT's success is the growing alternative media - media by the
people and for the people - whose legitimacy and reputation is measured
in accuracy, consistency, and objectivity, not slick graphics,
expensive suits, and million-dollar studios. The alternative media has
provided content for growing national news agencies seeking to
challenge the West's hegemony over information, and while national news
agencies ultimately pursue national agendas, the content they are
drawing on generally come from people simply seeking the truth.

The EU's act of censorship against Press TV is in turn a strike against
the alternative media. Instead of being seen as a setback, it should be
seen as a success and a signal to redouble our efforts as individuals
to assert our own will and vision for the future over that of the
miniscule global elite who have so far gone unchallenged in their
designs and aspirations. The alternative media should be only the first
in a series of people-driven alternatives systematically undermining and replacing existing corporate-financier dominated paradigms.
