So let's see, the opinion is based upon a single anecotal case of allegations, not fact, where no evidence that anyone in the news media was aware of the story.

This is how conspiracy theories are formed. No actual evidence related to anecdotal cases.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

who said it was a single case?
who said no media knew of it?

it's not a single case.
there is evidence.

you comments are the same type of reasoning that keeps this kind of case out of public discourse. with knee jerk assumptions of "no evidence" and name calling it as "conspiracy theory".


So before i post the evidence i want to know will you even consider it when available shiva? or will you just going to maintain your "conspiracy theory" accusations if proven false?

So far you've posted "allegations" against a single person and even then you failed to provide any evidence that the "media" was aware of the problem.

Yes, if you post studies that indicate that the "media" is aware of criminal wrongdoing and intentionally suppressing that information I'd be interested.

I'm not very interested in more anecdotal cases that lack any real evidence of malfeasance by the news media.

"post studies" LOL.
But individual examples are not to be considered relevant.

the item i posted said
"western media is part of the establishment and goes to great lengths, to cover up, delay and distort the truth."

It's doesn't say the the media is a maleficent monolith of pure evil.

The statement is merely a assessment of what the medias actions are consistently over time.

yes knowledge of wrong doing in this area,
with "cover ups, delays and distortion of the truth."

How UK Government Covered Up a VIP Pedophile Ring
Now that most of the major figures are dead, the truth is emerging about the systematic sexual abuse of children by members of the British government.
LONDON — A newspaper editor was handed startling evidence that Britain’s top law enforcement official knew there was a VIP pedophile network in Westminster, at the heart of the British government. What happened next in the summer of 1984 helps to explain how shocking allegations of rape and murder against some of the country’s most powerful men went unchecked for decades.
Less than 24 hours after starting to inquire about the dossier presented to him by a senior Labour Party politician, the editor was confronted in his office by a furious member of parliament who threatened him and demanded the documents. “He was frothing at the mouth and really shouting and spitting in my face,” Don Hale told The Daily Beast. “He was straight at me like a raging lion; he was ready to knock me through the wall.”
Despite the MP’s explosive intervention, Hale refused to hand over the papers which appeared to show that Leon Brittan, Margaret Thatcher’s Home Secretary, was fully aware of a pedophile network that included top politicians.
The editor’s resistance was futile; the following morning, police officers from the counter-terror and intelligence unit known as Special Branch burst into the newspaper office, seized the material and threatened to have Hale arrested if he ever reported what had been found.
More than 30 years later, an inquiry into allegations of child sex abuse rings, murder, and cover-ups has been launched by the British government after Scotland Yard detectives said they believed statements by victims who claimed they were systematically abused as young boys at sex abuse parties attended by judges, politicians, intelligence officers, and staff at the royal palaces.
In 1983, a controversial MP, Geoffrey Dickens, had made a series of incendiary claims about active pedophiles in the corridors of power. He handed a file containing the names of alleged perpetrators to Leon Brittan; publicly the authorities shrugged off the claims and no trial or prosecution would follow. The dossier mysteriously disappeared....
How Thatcher?s Government Covered Up a VIP Pedophile Ring - The Daily Beast

Quote:
"The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide (UNITED STATES) pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators attempted to expose the network in 1989 and 1990, but the legislators' efforts were followed by a rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering responses of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI and Justice Department, which effected an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network.."
the Discovery Channel produced a TV documentary on the scandal but it never ran on TV.

from amazon The FRANKLIN SCANDAL"A chilling exposť of corporate corruption and government cover-ups, this account of a nationwide child-trafficking and pedophilia ring in the United States tells a sordid tale of corruption in high places. The scandal originally surfaced during an investigation into Omaha, Nebraska's failed Franklin Federal Credit Union that went beyond the Midwest, ultimately to Washington, DC. Implicating businessmen, senators, major media corporations, the CIA, and even the venerable Boys Town organization, this extensively researched report includes firsthand interviews with key witnesses and explores a controversy that has received scant media attention."

Hollywood’s Pedophilia Epidemic Exposed in ‘An Open Secret’
...The personal testimonies of five former child actors/models gives An Open Secret its gut-punching impact, as many detail the terror and confusion they felt falling victim to the managers, publicists, and agents they trusted. They recall the uncertainty of not knowing how to defend themselves against the older predatory mentors who were also helping guide their careers, many of whom spent years “grooming” the youngsters and their parents to earn their trust.

All of the now-older victims report feeling distraught, intimidated, traumatized, and even suicidal. Many of them turned to drugs and alcohol to deal with the abuse, or quit the industry altogether to sever ties to their poisoned dreams....

...Years later, Evan H. secretly recorded Weiss confessing to his park assault on tape, only to have Weiss insist that the then-11-year-old was asking for it.

More famous actors who had brushes with Hollywood pedophiles and lived to tell also pop up in the film. Corey Feldman appears in archival footage railing against the Hollywood pedophiles who molested him and the late Corey Haim, as detailed in his 2013 memoir.

Diff’rent Strokes star Todd Bridges, who went public in 2010 with his own childhood sexual abuse at the age of 11 by his own publicist, describes begging to be written out of the show’s very special pedophile episode “because I had myself gone through that, and watching it happen on the show it was like reliving that all over again.”...

Quote:
...Several journalists are included in the film, with one describing his attempt to document the sexual crimes committed by top Hollywood figures and how his story exposing this criminal conduct was killed.
Even more shocking, director Berg was quoted as saying last November that she could not find any company willing to distribute her film....
A New York Times review of “An Open Secret” notes that “some of the culprits, we’re told, still work in Hollywood,” and that “further aggressive reporting is needed.” The Times adds, “This topic deserves a tenacious call for answers.”

http://www.aim.org/aim-column/exposi...od-pedophiles/
why does it take a years and one documentary to expose what's an "open secret"

while Kim Karadsians and J'los Butts are of course big new why little to no media exposer of Hollywoods Decades of continuing pedophila problem.

Is it correct to say that the lack of media attention there is because there's NO KNOWLEDGE. There seems to be long time cover-up, delays and distortions of the truth here to me.

what's your theory on what's happening here shiva?

I don't buy it, Mr. W. The media, at least the American variety, would never keep a pedophile incident of a famous person quiet. Look no further than Michael J if you doubt it.

It seem at the least they are selective in their exposer.
sadly see Bill Cosby. who's activity was not exposed seriously ..for decades.
the same as the the British Pedo entertainer wasn't fully exposed until dead.

and again look at the hollywood documentary. it exposes actions of hollywood directors and execs etc.. that have not made it into the public eye much if at all.

No...There's a point here not mentioned...

It's not really "The Media"...It's the people surrounding the alleged pedophile...It's those that refuse to discuss it until the alleged pedophile is gone and there won't be negative consequences to their words...

If a maid, publicist, or chef of a famous person knows the actions of their boss and speak up, they know it will surely cost them their livelihood, so they keep their mouths shut...Many victims also refuse to come forward for fear of retaliation of the celebrity or being attacked themselves by adoring fans...

Someone in the media might have a rumor, but if everyone around the alleged pedophile refuses to bear witness, then they remain nothing more than a rumor...

The media kept Michael's sexual proclivities out of the limelight for years, and the government allowed him to buy his way out of the charge.

They didn't spend a lot of space on the Catholic Church incident either.

Nope. He was constant media fodder ever since the first accusation broke.
