Postcards from the Revolution, RT (Nov. 6) – DURING the past few months, the Venezuelan government led by President Nicolás Maduro has denounced multiple incidents of sabotage against the country’s electrical infrastructure along with an ongoing campaign to undermine the nation’s economy. A majority of international media, together with private media in Venezuela, have ridiculed the Venezuelan President’s accusations, and have instead attempted to pin responsibility on the government for the instability and harm caused to the country by these actions. Nevertheless, an internal document authored by three organizations from Colombia and the United States, evidences a sinister plan against the Venezuelan state to provoke violence – even death – with the intention of justifying an international intervention in anticipation of municipal elections scheduled for next December 8.

Keiderling: CIA agent in Havana, Caracas

spyAll the revelations about electronic and satellite espionage by the U.S. National Security Agency give the impression of an omnipotent and omniscience superpower, which sees all and knows all, before which humanity is helpless. They also obscure the role carried out by human agents in espionage, covert operations and destabilization of any government trying to take a path independent of Washington as one more element in the U.S. strategy of domination. JEAN-GUY ALLARD* reports on one CIA agent, active in Kyrgyzstan, Moldavia, Cuba and Venezuela, who posed as a humanitarian “cultural” official. Nevertheless, this super agent was recently exposed, outed and expelled by the later country in disgrace and the humiliation of her employer. – TS

CBC’s flagship news program sold favourable coverage to the Harper government, then lied about it

mediaculpaheader.stretchedBoing Boing (Nov. 13) – Jesse Brown from the Canadaland podcast (RSS) writes: “CBC News has made a bad error in judgment. They sold news coverage to the Harper government, who were seeking publicity for a shipwreck salvaging expedition which, in a federal Minister’s words, is an effort to ‘enhance’ Canada’s sovereignty claims in the Arctic. The government is embroiled in a land claim dispute with Russia; both nations covet the massive oil and gas deposits that are thought to reside beneath the the Arctic Ocean. The CBC covered the government’s (fruitless) salvage expedition with fawning stories across its platforms: there’s a dedicated news website and a two-part documentary that aired on The National, CBC’s flagship newscast. CBC Chief Correspondent Peter Mansbridge himself reported live from the Arctic on a Parks Canada boat, at no time informing viewers that the subjects of his story had paid for his presence.”

You can read the confidential contract (unearthed through an anonymous Access to Information request) here, and the CBC’s evasively-worded denial here.

“We do not get paid to provide coverage. Ever.” – CBC News Editor in Chief Jennifer McGuire

“CBC will provide news coverage on various platforms” – invoice for services provided by CBC to the government in exchange for $65,000 (p.147)

The CBC’s secret deal with the Harper government

TS comment: The report begs the question: Was CBC also paid to despatch Peter Mansbridge to the Halifax International Security Forum aka HalifaxWar Conference in 2012 and 2013, with fawning interviews with Harper’s ministers?
