David Petraeus: when facts exceed conspiracy theories (MULTILINGUAL)

David Petraeus

The curious case of David Petraeus is a prime example of a post-truth world. It illustrates a radical change in the world of media. Before him, no one could have imagined a former chief of intelligence at the head of the media, especially not in a country he had helped to destroy.

The investigation dwells on the factors that allowed for this unparalleled example of manipulation to occur. In particular, it sheds light on: the carrier path of Petraeus centered on conquering hearts and minds; the spread of LBOs by the investment firm KKR and its takeover of media in the Balkans; the role of american ambassadors and of George Soros; the opaque financial networks and ownership structures; the NATO bombing of Serbian televisions; the arm-twisting of parliament and the complacency of local officials; the revolving doors between the army, the finance, the intelligence and the media; the manipulations on internet.

The French Observatory of Journalism had the courage of conducting and publishing this investigation. It had a large echo in Serbian media, but nowhere else, except for a few Russian and Bulgarian portals and a French web television:

You can help by spreading the word in your language, even if you deem necessary to avoid public and digital channels. Not all hearts and minds are conquered.


Note: A day after the publication of this article, the entire account of the independent French television TVLibertés was terminated by Youtube. It is apparently a coincidence, but the video is no more available.

Note, september 2018: the video is back on another platform.
