Two Videos of the Same Arrest in Baltimore Shows How MSM Does Not Give You the Whole Truth

lies and propaganda on tv (retro effect)

Just minutes after the police state curfew went into effect in Baltimore Saturday night, the brutality began. However, the actual coverage of that brutality varies depending on who is telling this story.

The first video of the arrest is put out by CNN. It begins with a semi-conscious man laying on the ground with a reporter speculating on the possibility of the man faking his unconsciousness.

The reporter then describes how bottles were being thrown at police and that this arrest could be related.

The second video of this arrest comes from Russia Today. Despite lacking any commentary, it depicts the actual story magnitudes more accurately.

RT has a camera rolling as an apparently angry but non-violent and unarmed protester begins yelling at police. He is then met with a pepper spray blast at near point blank range, directly in his face.

Amazingly enough, he takes this blast of spray seemingly without reaction. The lack of reaction by this man seems to anger the officers as one of them runs behind him grabbing his dreadlocks and slamming him to the ground. When the man goes down, it becomes apparent that the pepper spray is indeed, taking its toll.

After the crowd sees this unnecessary escalation of force by police, they become angry, and many of them were then sprayed as well. At this point, the bottles begin to fly at officers – after the police, not protesters – initiated conflict.

There is no such thing as “unbiased reporting.” No matter the outlet, bias is an unavoidable facet to journalism. Here at the Free Thought Project, we are completely open about our bias in being anti-war, anti-corruption, and against the war on drugs.

Knowing that all journalism advocates an agenda, we can see that the MSM’s agenda happens to be one diametrically opposed to the principles of a free society as they perpetually cheer-lead for the status quo. War, brutality, and corporatism are all but ignored by the mainstream as covering these things could be damaging to the establishment.

As MSM is part of the establishment, their agenda advocates for the preservation of that establishment. They would not want to shoot themselves in the foot by helping people to break free from their dependency upon the two-party corporatocracy that pretends to keep order in society.

All journalism is a form of activism. Every journalistic choice necessarily embraces highly subjective assumptions — cultural, political or nationalistic — and serves the interests of one faction or another.

But ultimately, the only real metric of journalism that should matter is accuracy and reliability. I personally think honestly disclosing rather than hiding one’s subjective values makes for more honest and trustworthy journalism. But no journalism — from the most stylistically “objective” to the most brazenly opinionated — has any real value unless it is grounded in facts, evidence, and verifiable data.

    Do these “protestors” (or rioters) know that you can go buy that same pepper spray from most sporting goods stores (if not online) and spray it right back in the cops face?

    Also – whats the point of throwing bottles – when are they going to start throwing bottles of gasoline, followed by bottles of gasoline with burning rags attached?

    • deadhead

      They can’t use their EBT card for that.

    • RLM357

      You ANAL CAVITY !

  • SickOfTheStupid

    Just more proof of the police and the MSM instigating and initiating the violence …………….the man did nothing and got pepper-sprayed …..and thrown to the ground for arrest by his hair

    And who are the animals in all this?.

  • fgt4urights

    Why you think our government is spending lots of dough to counter and want to shut down RT. Sadly, RT is actually better at news about our own country than the our big 3 stations.

    • Wally D

      Al Gore still got his fingers in the station?

      • Rick E.

        Naw, he’s chillin in his $8,875,000 mansion on the California coast after saying that folks should move away from the coast because of rising sea levels!

    RT is good, but keep in mind it is a Russian propaganda mechanism. It is always a good idea to cross check their stuff if possible. As for CNN and American media in general, treat everything as a lie.

    • englishvinal

      I have been “checking their stuff”.. for a long time. Haven’t caught them in a LIE… yet.
      More than anybody can say for the Press-ti-tute, yelling screaming, “I think” this and “I think” that, … bought and paid for propaganda opinion, low life’s at FAUX , MSNBC, ABC, CNN.. etc. etc.

  • MaryEJ

    so.. he (bill) is advocating pepper spraying police and throwing glass bottles with gasoline and lit rags at police trying to burn them alive, and you come back with ‘then the police will murder you and dirty commanders will call it justified?’ REALLY? OF COURSE its justified.

    I can pretty much guarantee you that if anyone throws Molotov cocktails at me or my family their death will be justified and swift.

    Perpetuating this crap is a bad idea. Pressing for more violence is a bad idea. Giving the police a reason to shoot you is a bad idea. THIS is a big part of the problem. How will anyone take the issue of brutality seriously when it just cycles and cycles and cycles. All this does is make them look better and the protesters look worse.

    Do what MLK did.. walk peacefully and make your points without destroying streets, businesses and homes. Wear suits and look respectable, don’t wear inflammatory words on T-Shirts. No one will get anywhere this way.

    • SickOfTheStupid

      100% wrong !

      over 50 years of following the peaceful path like MLK ( who incidentally got shot for his efforts) has gotten us to the point cops are KILLING people over a few cents in tax or for failing to give proper respect .

      Take a moment and watch the video of those cops ‘arresting’ that horse thief back a few weeks ago…notice how they swarm and behave like rabid dogs or a school of that is the mind set and behavior patterns of ALL LEOs in this country. That was not just a few ‘bad’ cops on a force but the entire force ………

      Peaceful means will never have any effect has we have seen , the only cure is we are going to have to BEAT the FEAR back into them and painfully remind them in no uncertain terms who they work for …………That is going to happen the cops picked a fight they can not win ..they are outnumbered thousands to one . They brought this on themselves………..

      • Chantal_Designer

        Unfortunately you are 100% RIGHT..!!

      • MaryEJ

        I have seen a lot of videos with police doing horrific things to all races.. do not get me wrong. I see a problem. HOWEVER, fighting the police is not the way. That will get a lot MORE people killed. We do not want a civil war with the police or government right now. That will bring on martial Law and then we have no elections and no power.That should be the absolute LAST resort. And should not happen until we are all on the same page.. black, white, brown, yellow, purple, green and blue. While we still have beefs with each other, we can not stand as one and make any kind of difference. It will just be mayhem.

        We need to change things up in leadership. Get some new blood in there to shake it up. Some one who is not attracted to money as an incentive for all rulings. Clean up the house. Toss out all the biased and crooked people in charge. Stop allowing the powers that be to divide us using media and lies.That is how we should do it FIRST.

        • SickOfTheStupid

          we have tried your method’s for 50+ years , think we can survive another 50?

          Lots of us don’t , we know ether way lots of people are going to die , its better to die with the chance of winning than die on our knees .

          The Government does not want a revolution or ‘war’ has you call it .they know they cant win they must instigate a civil war and then they can easily finish off our enslavement with endless martial law.

          Pay attention , our governmnt is instigating this fight they are trying to make us beg for a fedcoat national police force and Israeli style martial law . they are staging and instigating these riots it was another FBI ‘sting’ terrorist attack in Texas and most importantly they are lying there a ss es off to us about jade helm 15……………

          The dice has been cast , this is going to get bloody and it is going to happen soon..Our governmnt has already made its intentions clear .

          • MaryEJ

            You think it was our government who attacked that group in Texas? Didn’t Isis take credit for that?

            What is the Purpose? If they want martial law, all they need to do is continue with the race baiting. Eventually people will erupt and it will be black against white … When in my opinion, it’s all a fabricated problem. I do not see issues between races in my daily life. But it is all over the Internet and on the news. I find it very frustrating. I see stats and I see videos and I am confused. The black and white people in my life get along very well. However, if they keep up the taunting, it will not be long before we implode.. Unless we can find a way to come together. I think if we were united on these things, we would get farther. But when we are split by race, sex, sexual preference, religion, class, etc… How can we take a stand and succeed?

        • Rick E.

          The ONLY thing imbecilic cops understand is VIOLENCE!
          We need to mete out violence to counter their violence!
          I understand and applaud your proposed methodology for dealing with rabid dogs, (oops, I mean cops), but in reality, it just won’t work!
          Many cops now are crazed wild dogs with the restraint, class, and where-with-all of a crazy rabid rhino!

    • englishvinal

      And Martin Luther King got……….
      …. what?
      KILLED… murdered.

      • MaryEJ

        All the good ones are killed unfortunately. That does not mean we should give up the fight to make positive changes.

        • SickOfTheStupid

          there is a word for doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results ……….stupid.

          • MaryEJ

            Then we need to find a different way that does not involve a civil war. Innocent people will be killed. Babies, children, grandparents, pregnant women… All of our most helpless will be put in harms way. There has to be another solution.

    What is truly strange about this is that this is exactly what the police in Hong Kong did last year to put down the student protests here. This is a global phenomenon, the militarisation of police forces worldwide in service of corrupt oligarchs, aided and abetted by corporatised media conglomerates.

  • deadhead

    Cops need to start shooting these apes.

    • englishvinal

      You are clearly scrapings off the womb floor~! No decent, honest man would make a statement like that. YOU are the cloth that the PO-lice are cut from.

      • Joe Sniper

        Just evil is what they are just like the apes.

  • Joe Sniper

    That dude was some kind of stupid, huh…and the cops, well….**poof**…they’ll just kill you….CNN is such a joke, its beast system pathtic.

    • They are all owned by the same group/club/tribe.

            CNN is owned by Time-Warner. I went through the list of the board of directors and senior executives–20 names in all. Of the 20, only 7 had Jewish-sounding names. The rest were probably Christians. So what do you have to say about that?

          • Joe Sniper

            They arnt christians, but you are brainwashed off beast system TV news. They are all part of the serpent seed antichrist network. America is gutted and you still have no clue.

  • Kate Frederickson

    He wants to make himself famous if even for a little while so that he can claim that he was brutalized. Probably want to cash in on some deal he has concocted in his own little ignorant head. These people are insane and need nothing more than to be locked away in an asylum. Anyone who believes this crap obviously has never lived in a black community and been a victim of crime. I know of hundreds of people that have had a loved one killed by a thug like Freddie Gray and where was the media on their loved ones being killed? The prisons are filled with Freddie Grays and Trayvons and so on. These are scum and vile people who hurt other people. These insane clowns on the street are nothing more than agitators and useful idiots for the media and the dirty politicians.

    • englishvinal

      Kate: I HAVE lived in a Negro community in Houston Texas… I worked with Negros… my best friend in the whole world, who is hard working, honest and supported her mother, father, sister and her sister’s children until they were grown up, and then contributed money to pay for college for one of them……… is Jamaican (can you say Negro?)…..
      …. I had more heartburn with the Red Necks in Channel View than I did the Negros who lived on York Avenue…….
      There are “rejects” of every “skin color”.. and when anybody starts wholesaling people by their skin shade, instead of using logical deductive reasoning.. then THEY are the rancid evil santorum that spoils life for multiple other people.

      You “know HUNDREDS of people who have had a loved one killed”…. Good Grief lady, where the heck do you live anyway?

      • I’m white and from one of the worst cities in the country and yeah it was bad and very dangerous. I’ve had guns put to my head, been robbed, been jumped but luckily never stabbed or shot, just some broken bones and scars but I can tell you that there are good people in every ghetto that wish they didn’t have to put up with that shit either. Every Jamaican I have ever met had at least 2 jobs, some had 3. I don’t know why they are so hard working and maybe it’s just my narow view of the ones I’ve met in life, I dunno, but they all worked many more hours than I did on an average week and I was putting in 60hrs.

  • englishvinal


  • We have got to get these monkeys out of our country. I suggest we relocate the Blacks to a reservation type area. Better

    , safer for everyone.

  • Alleged Comment

    Did the negro have to be pepper sprayed? He just stood there, still lot of distance. Maybe he was the marker to bring the others closer and police could not take the chance?

    Should of given the negro more time, but he made a fool of himself anyway.

  • Luke Fairhurst

    The global elites that control the usa want us to fight back so they can enforce martial law. Fighting back is what they want ppl. Be smart.

    • Carol Ladybug

      the blacks fall for it every time

  • Dan

    I don’t think they have any money for pepper spray. They are not working due to the liberal democratic agenda they voters for and you can buy it with food stamps. After the beer weed and chips and air Jordan’s there is no cash left.
