We plan to discuss his contention that the alternative media should be alternative, and examples will be provided of some prominent individuals in the alternative media who have bought into mass media false frames, hook, line and sinker.
For example, Alex Jones has repeatedly pushed the notion that HIV is a harmful virus, when the original 1984 lab documents show that HIV was fraudulently misidentified as the probable cause of AIDS.
During the illegal NATO bombing of Libya, which I spoke out against at the time, Alex Jones bought into the mass media false frame of Gaddafi as a “dictator”, which Berry had challenged at the time, showing that Gaddafi was overruled on a particular decision by a local democratic council.
Also, Jeff Rense uncritically linked to a mass media article falsely claiming that Gaddafi’s family assets were seized, when in reality, they were actually Libyan assets that were seized, as the article itself ironically later admits:
“All the assets were held through Libya’s sovereign wealth fund, the Libyan Investment Authority, which was set up in 2006, ostensibly to manage Libya’s oil revenues and diversify the country’s income.“
