Ex-CNN Reporter: I Received Orders to Manipulate News to Demonize Syria and Iran

Amber Lyons – CNN Reporter told to fabricate the news

We all know how the media are slanted and biased against the oppressed and poor.  That is not surprising given that the BBC was set up, like other similar broadcasting organisations, in the womb of the state.

CNN, when it started out under Ted Turner, promised a new era of truthfulness, but that was before Bush’s War Against Terror.   As we should all know, truth is the first casualty of war and no more so than in the Corporate Media of the USA, be it the ‘right-wing’ Fox or the ‘neutral’ CNN, ABC etc.

What is most interesting is that CNN receives money from the US and other governments.  Maybe it should be called ‘Truth’ after Pravda!

PRAGUE, (SANA)- Ex-CNN reporter Amber Lyon revealed that during her work for the channel she received orders to send false news and exclude some others which the US administration did not favor with the aim to create a public opinion in favor of launching an aggression on Iran and Syria.

Lyon was quoted by the Slovak main news website as saying that the mainstream US media outlets intentionally work to create a propaganda against Iran to garner public opinion’s support for a military invasion against it.

Lying in action

She revealed that the scenario used before launching the war on Iraq is being prepared to be repeated where Iran and Syria are now being subject to constant ‘demonization’.

The former reporter clarified that the CNN channel manipulates and fabricates news and follows selectiveness when broadcasting news, stressing that the Channel receives money from the U.S. government and other countries’ governments in exchange for news content.
