How did the global elitists succeed in their plans under the “watchful eye” of the media? David Rockefeller in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June 1991 thanked the CFR-controlled mass media elitists for maintaining their secrecy while reiterating his agenda for a New World Order:
“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years.
“But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.”
The CFR’s media membership lists, past and present, include: CBS CEO Laurence A. Tisch, and former CBS newsman Dan Rather; NBC/MSNBCCEO John F. Welch along with Tom Brokaw, David Brinkley, John Chancellor, Marvin Kalb, Irving R. Levine, Peter G. Peterson, and Andrea Mitchell (wife of former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan); ABC CEO Thomas S. Murphy, with Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, and George Stephanopoulos.
PBS media members include Robert McNeil, Jim Lehrer, Hodding Carter III, and Daniel Schorr. Last but not least among the CFR media mogul members is Rupert Murdock, NY Post and Fox News (So much for “fair and balanced reporting.”)
