Paul, your trying to derail a topic with senseless arguement.
What do you want? A live interview with the guy?
And most know Snopes is a husband and wife working out of their home. Ask them to provide proof of everything they say.

So I gather that you don't know know that McGowan died in 2015? How about any mention at all of this alleged statement by Colby while he was alive, not years after his death?

Senseless argument? Why, because I've asked you to back up one of your allegations?

Don't like Snopes? How about Metabunk, which also debunks the statement? Or "International Skeptics"? Same result, there's no evidence that Colby ever said it.

Look, Felix, I know that you do a lot of research on the internet. Can you find any source for this alleged quote other than McGowan?

Hold on.... he's looking for a youtube to back up the claim.

TRUST? None. They all have an agenda and a point of view that they are selling. Of course, if they agree with me they are plausible, but trustworthy. NEVER.

Yesterday, Donald Trump was seen walking on water. Today, CNN reported that "Trump can't swim."

So, naturally, he has to walk on the water.

WoW,I'm gone a couple days and you people turn my thread into Lone Stars "Will trump make the grade" and Lone Star isn't even here. Lets get it repaired.....
My Moderator Friend has asked "Look, Felix, I know that you do a lot of research on the internet. Can you find any source for this alleged quote other than McGowan?" I do have an "attachment" of many people protesting, holding up a large banner that reads "The CIA OWNS everyone of any significance in the Major Media"--Former CIA Director William Colby. Would that be relevent? But anyways, what if we just took off "Former CIA Director William Colby" and just show "The CIA OWNS everyone of any significance in the Major Media". Would everyone agree. then? This is basically where I was going with this thread. I would assume if Colby did say this, it was probably banned from yours and my eyes. As far as your Award Winning "Snoopes" (in your dreams), that is nothing less than just normal "mopping up"of the crumbs after the man was dead. Paul, you might like Babylon Bee for "facts" or "Before its News.com". BIN lists things before they hit mainstream, follow them, update them in realtime, and tell whether it was true or fake news. BTW, you did know Snoopes got busted for taking money to "alter" the truth, right? The War is on for our Minds..(updates coming soon) Sorry, no Youtube videos. Why don't people attack MSM for their expensive videos? They got all the high paid actors and sparkly lights and "Breaking News" flashes. Hope that helps.....

Twice-weekly news analysis. Listen to this a couple of times and you will not bother with MSM again.

No. Are you serious? Something written on a sign held up at a protest rally means that it must be true? Right.

But by supporting your proposition with what now appears to be a fabricated quote, you have severely impacted the credibility of your claim. You repeatedly assail others for not checking their facts. Don't you?

Yes, there are legitimate questions about Snopes (https://www.forbes.com/sites/kalevleeta ... ea6bf5227f, for example); however, as you may recall, Snopes was only one of several similar websites which debunked the alleged Colby statement.

In no particular order. BBC, ABC (leftie), The Australian (yep Murdoch but OK), Sydney Morning Herald (Leftie), Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, The Guardian (leftie), Washington Post, Al Jazerra, The Straights Times.

To be avoided, Fox News, The Sydney Telecrap, Fox News, The National Enquirer, Fox News....and, ahem...Fox News

From an Australian perspective.

The WaPo takes a nasty jab at Thailand and those, who visit her, every chance it gets. The Catholic Church always gets a free pass, and never mind that DC has the worst school system in the country and scary high crime rates, under complete leftie control for decades.

You know, I didn't realize when I posted this, but it was "What main Stream media do you trust?".
That is not only the MSM News channels, but it also encounters the social media platforms.
They are all connected and should be viewed as such. My friends at Truthstreammedia, just posted a new video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J2jgLX6XKc View it and then you will probably have a eye opening experience of how you/we all have been pulled into this dolphamine induced sparatic , messageing leaving,selfie, life.
When you eyes are open, you will feel like a complete "donkey". Take care, hope this helps...

Don't really 'trust' any of them.

Since the Jimmy Saville horror, I have no faith in the daily mail, & little in the BBC.

They must have known about him.

I read a bit from The Independent, & some from The Guardian & take a large pinch of salt also.

All news services have an agenda they want to push. You need to compare stories on different sites and see what side they prefer. it is amazing how different it can be, or how one source can support one point of view and conveniently condemn it one month later if it suits them. If you are lucky, you will find a source that will report something as 'news' just because it is ....

One example of bias is that Sunni, islamist leaning rebels (backed by Saudi Arabia) in Syria are 'good' because the Syrian government is 'bad' . But Houthi rebels in Yemen are 'bad' because they overthrew the government and are backed by 'bad' Iran. So Saudi Arabia can bomb the areas they control because they are 'bad'. In fact, the Yemeni government controls practically nothing, The parts of Yemen not under Houthi control are under the control of local warlords, Saudi and Emirati troops and a lot of Mercenaries (Paid for by Saudi?). Houthis have never been terrorists, but a lot of the Syrian rebels were.

Where do i get most of my news from? BBC, a few British news papers. France 24 (because i can get on TV here) and if i want to find the truth, will look at Aljazeera or RT news for a different perspective. As someone else said, Private Eye must be uncovering many truths or it wouldn't be taken to court so much ..... Likewise, the fact that Saudi Arabia tried to get Aljazeera shut down speaks volumes about that source.

rick, I appreciate your input, but you just took the masses back to the "curb". And all garbage should be kicked to the curb. The US media is nothing more than an "extension" of the British empire. Yep. same. same.

Another one of felix's general statement with NO specific info. If this was true he would give actual specifics U.S. media thats an extension of British empire.
