At the end of his November 19, 2011 interview with Dr. Adrian Krieg, Erskine of Erskine Overnight said (starting at 48:00 with pause words removed):
“I’ll tell you what happened to me, Dr. Krieg. I got a phone call from one of the major networks — radio networks, not TV — and they said, ‘hey, we’d like you to do this radio show and there’s a lot of money in it, and it’ll be very good, we think you’d be very good on it. Cover a lot of paranormal topics, that type of thing.’
I said ‘fine, that sounds great.’
‘But you can’t do any of that conspiracy stuff, nobody wants to hear any of that conspiracy stuff.’
So that tells you exactly what they’re doing. You take Clear Channel and, it was a Clear Channel thing, and that’s exactly what they were doing. They were giving you your marching orders before you even took it. Yeah, I could’ve been extraordinarily famous, other people have done it, other people have taken it. But the fact of the matter is, they promise you the money and everything else. Isn’t that a lot like what Satan did to Jesus? I mean, I’m sorry, I’m not comparing myself to Jesus or them to Satan, but this is sort of the way of the world, isn’t it?“
To me, this sounds like one show, and one show only – Coast to Coast AM. With “a lot of paranormal topics,” promises of “lots of money,” not covering a lot of “conspiracy” topics (before George Noory’s tenure), how it could’ve made Erskine “extraordinarily famous,” and how “other people have done it, other people have taken it” — implying it was an existing show. The fact that their guest list shows no entry for Erskine, or his real name, is further indication to me that it was the show he was offered to host, and turned down on principle.
If Coast to Coast AM is the show Erskine is referring to, then the question becomes what offer was made to those who have hosted it on a regular basis, including Art Bell, Barbara Simpson, Whitley Strieber, Mike Siegel, Hilly Rose, Ian Punnett, Rollye James, George Knapp and George Noory?
To those hosts where the offer was the same, with promises of fame and fortune on the condition of not being able to discuss certain issues that really matter, then what does that say about their journalistic integrity?
Art Bell kept certain “conspiracy” topics (9/11 Truth) and guests (Alex Jones, David Icke) off their air during his reign, and the interim hosts before George Noory had to follow their marching orders.
Then, since George Noory has became host in 2003, I have evidence showing how he has been gatekeeping a huge issue, despite his pretenses to the contrary in covering new topics and guests that Art wouldn’t.
An example of certain “conspiracy” topics being kept off the air is found by a Google search for “Trilateral Commission” on Coast to Coast’s website. You’ll see that only two show descriptions mention it, and the only one where it was discussed in an in-depth show was with Michael Ruppert, who was invited back only once, in which he dressed down long-time guest, Jerome Corsi, concerning several blatant errors in his book, Black Gold Stranglehold, and that appearance is missing from the new website, but can still be found on the old one.
For more on the Trilateral Commission, see my article, Paul Volcker laughs at the great increase in wealth disparity over the past 10 to 15 years, and at Americans for not speaking out more forcibly against it.
