CRY WOLF by ANTHONY FREDA


Cry Wolf





Know your wolves.
This is an excerpt from Wolf's bio on Wikipedia:

Washington and Jerusalem


In writing for several Israeli newspapers in Washington, Blitzer has used the names Zev Blitzer and Zev Barak.[9] Zev (זאב) is the Hebrew word for "wolf" and Barak (ברק) is the Hebrew word for "lightning" (which in German/Yiddish is Blitz).
Blitzer began his career in journalism in the early 1970s in the Tel Aviv bureau of the Reuters news agency. In 1973 he caught the eye of Jerusalem Post editor Ari Rath, who hired Blitzer as a Washington correspondent for the English language Israeli newspaper. Blitzer remained with the Jerusalem Post until 1990, covering both American politics and developments in the Middle East.[10]
In the mid-1970s, Blitzer also contributed to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as the editor of their monthly publication, the Near East Report.[11][12] While at AIPAC, Blitzer's writing focused on Middle East affairs as they relate to United States foreign policy.
Fluent in Hebrew, in this period Blitzer also published articles for several Israeli-based newspapers. Under the name Zev Blitzer, he wrote for Al HaMishmar; using the name Zev Barak, he had work published in Yedioth Ahronoth.[9]
In 1985, Blitzer published his first book, Between Washington and Jerusalem: A Reporter's Notebook (Oxford University Press, 1985). The text outlined his personal development as a reporter, and the relations between the United States and Israel.

Jonathan Pollard

In 1986, he became known for his coverage of the arrest and trial of Jonathan Pollard, an American Jew who was charged with spying for Israel.[10] Blitzer was the first journalist to interview Pollard, and he would later write a book about the Pollard Affair titled Territory of Lies.[13] In the book, Blitzer writes that Pollard contacted him because he had been reading Blitzer's byline for years, and because Blitzer "had apparently impressed him as someone who was sympathetic".[14] Pollard also hoped that Blitzer would help him "reach the people of Israel, as well as the American Jewish community."[15]

A review in The New York Review of Books was critical. Reviewer Robert I. Friedman characterized Territory of Lies as "a slick piece of damage control that would make [Blitzer's] former employers at AIPAC (not to mention Israel's Defense Ministry) proud."[18]

Does anyone believe a man with this bio is an unbiased, objective journalist seeking truth?

Why would anyone let the discredited mainstream media define reality for them? We have the world at our fingertips now. Why let exposed propagandists warp 

historical reality to manufacture our consent?

Why let Them tell us what is important? 

Yes, the truth is that we all are biased. We present and edit information in a way that promotes our point of view.

Full disclosure: My not-so-hidden agenda is to promote peace and freedom. The corporate media uses lies and psychological manipulation to sell us endless 

war, fear and tyranny.

A world populated with sheep will be ruled by wolves.

  1. Excellent article. Too many are afraid to reveal the power behind the media because they fear retaliation from the controlled press and entertainment industry. Is there any difference between the two anymore anyway? Never read the full bio on Blitzer I always sensed his bias without delving into his resume. But he is just one cog in that giant zionist wheel. It's time to end their stranglehold. The more that have the courage to speak up, the easier that task will become. Thank you for your voice.
