A highly popular "alternative" media, which while carrying some progressive news, nevertheless avoids certain subjects, and has nothing much to say about deep politics. It airs simultaneously on satellite and cable television, radio (carried by over 1300 stations worldwide) and the internet.
It is revealing that DN had next to nothing to say about September 11th in 2014, and (as of August 2015) had found noting to report on the topic since September 2013. It is revealing that it also chooses to air Noam Chomsky's views on the matter, in spite of his claiming not to know much about it.
|Open Society Foundations||A NGO operating in more countries than McDonald's. It has the tendency to support politicians (at times through astroturfing) and activists that get branded as "extreme left" as its founder is billionaire and bane of the pound George Soros. This polarizing perspective causes the abnormal influence of the OSF to go somewhat unanswered.|
|Pacifica Foundation||A progressive media foundation, generally anti-war, but also close to official narratives.|
|The Ford Foundation||In addition to its own billionaire agenda, also known to have been $$$ middleman for covert CIA funding.|
|File:What Happened to Pacifica.pdf||article||16 December 2019||Helen Buyniski||The story of Pacifica Radio is a cyclical saga of factional warfare, class and racial struggle, and the power of the self- preservation instinct.|
