Did we just finish Mainstream Media Malpractice Week? We examine the media’s premature projection of Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominee. We report on the FBI’s expanding use of paid informants in “domestic terrorism” cases, like the recent convictions in Minneapolis; and the FBI’s push for expanded powers to monitor internet activity.

Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: The Israeli Propaganda Machine

Peter B. Collins presents Journalist Max Blumenthal
Framed around a new documentary that exposes the sophisticated Israeli message machine, and the influence of American media manipulator Frank Luntz in shaping perceptions of Israel as a victim, Max Blumenthal is candid, and critical. Blumenthal is one of many contributors to this important film. We also discuss the recent execution of a wounded, disabled Palestinian suspect by an Israeli medic, and how Netanyahu initially misjudged the Israeli public’s reaction. We talk about the Brooklyn debate between candidates Clinton and Sanders, and Blumenthal has strong remarks about each. And, he states that this is the first time he’s been asked about the attempted smears Blumenthal has been targeted for by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and other allies of Israel.
*Max Blumenthal is a journalist, and author of Goliath and The 51-Day War. Get more information on the documentary mentioned, The Occupation of the American Mind here.

Following the Money to War Profiteers

Peter B. Collins presents Christian Sorensen
In this Newsbud special, BFP contributor Christian Sorensen and Sibel Edmonds talk about Sorensen’s latest breakdown of Pentagon spending, a regular feature here. Sorensen makes a compelling argument that terrorism has replaced the cold war as the driver of our military machine and the huge profits it throws off to corporate contractors. Sorensen displays an encyclopedic knowledge of DoD outlays, informed by the wasteful spending he observed while serving in the Air Force. After reviewing some details from his February report, we discuss the need for independent media that won’t take advertising from the military industrial complex, in order to provide uncompromised coverage of the Pentagon and other powerful arms of the government.
*Christian Sorensen is an independent writer and Arabic translator. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 2007-2011. The profligate waste he witnessed during his time in uniform forced him to reassess his

Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: Tor Was Built, Then Hacked by Pentagon

Peter B. Collins presents: Journalist Yasha Levine
Last fall, we learned that one branch of the Navy paid Carnegie-Mellon University researchers to hack into the “onion routing” encryption system called Tor, which was spawned by a different branch of the Navy, the Naval Research Laboratory. The FBI used the hack to penetrate the Dark Web and bust Silk Road 2.0, and Levine asserts that Tor is falsely advertised as impenetrable, and promoted by Ed Snowden. Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald. The judge in the Silk Road 2.0 case wrote that Tor users “are taking a gamble on any real expectation of privacy”. Levine also offers his views on the encryption battle between Apple and the FBI, and updates us on his progress on his new book.
*Yasha Levine is an investigative reporter for Pando.com. Read his latest Tor article here . His new book, Surveillance Valley, is due in 2017.

Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: Final Days of Oregon Standoff

Peter B. Collins Presents Attorney/Rancher Todd Macfarlane
In this follow-up to our recent interview, attorney, rancher and activist Todd Macfarlane provides details of the final days of the standoff in Oregon, and explains some of the history of western ranchers vs. government disputes over grazing rights on public lands. He shares eyewitness accounts of the death of LaVoy Finicum at the January 26 roadblock, and speculates about possible government infiltrators, like “Mark McConnell” who insisted on driving Ammon Bundy into the roadblock but was not arrested. We talk about many aspects of the final days of the occupation, and the arrest of Cliven Bundy before Macfarlane explains important history of rancher disputes over grazing rights and fees.
*Todd Macfarlane is the attorney for the Finicum family and an activist for western rancher rights. The report we refer to by Montana rancher Hal Herring is here. The article in the Daily Astorian

Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: The Real Story of Oregon Standoff

Peter B. Collins Presents Attorney Todd Macfarlane
Following his written commentary on the month-long occupation of a remote wildlife refuge near Burns, Oregon, Todd Macfarlane gives a detailed account of the history of rancher-government disputes, the Cliven Bundy confrontation in Nevada in 2014, and the occupation of Malheur by Bundy’s sons and others. Macfarlane spent 2 days there—unarmed—and is openly critical of Pete Santilli and other hotheads at the scene. He describes the over-reaction by political leaders and media, culminating in the roadblock January 26 where the group’s unofficial spokesman, LaVoy Finicum was killed. He represents the Finicum family, and is seeking answers to many important questions about the incident.
*Todd Macfarlane is an attorney, rancher, writer and political activist. He and his family own and operate the Turkey Track Ranch, near the small town of Kanosh, Utah. Todd is a veteran from earlier dust-ups in the sagebrush rebellion, having represented
