John Pilger - Freedom Next Time

So, I started to look for journalistic heroes. And after a couple of years, I think I found one. His name is John Pilger. If only more of our so-called professional journalists were this honest about the discoveries they make as part of their career.

Australian journalist, author, film maker John Pilger speaks about global media consolidation, war by journalism, US military's quest for domination/hegemony in the post 9/11 era, false history in the guise of 'objective' journalism. This presentation was filmed in Chicago at Socialism 2007: Socialism for the 21st Century by Paul Hubbard.

Pilger explores the WAR OF TERROR in some journalistic depth. He targets the mainstream media for it's lack of journalistic integrity. He attacks Bush and Blair as nothing but thugs in a corporate war for your minds. He calls out Barrack Obama as 'the voice of the Council on Foreign Relations', this is back in 2007.

Here's John Pilger recently writing in the New Statesman laying into Barrack Obama's first 100 days - because Pilger's a true journalist; not a corporate lackey, not a New World Order shill, not a whore at the capitalist gang-bang.
