“The Snowden-ISIS Hoax” with Tom Secker
On this edition of Demanufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by Tom Secker, host of the ClandesTime podcast and author of the book Secret, Spies, and 7/7.
We discuss the “Snowden-ISIS hoax,” the false “news” story that has been circulating through the internet over the past few weeks that claims former NSA contractor Edward Snowden released documents proving the CIA/MI6/Mossad are running the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and its leader Al-Badhdadi.
We explain the origins of this story, why it’s completely bogus, and who may have been responsible for its propagation. We also get into the “real story” of ISIS and the discuss the evidence that is actually available that suggests the CIA/NATO have been pulling the strings all along.
Lastly, we round out our conversation with a discussion on the alternative media, the pitfalls of “breaking news,” and how we can work together to avoid being misled by false information gone viral.
