(NaturalNews) There's something really fishy going on with the mainstream media right now. Multiple outlets such as Reuters and CBS News are reporting a story which they would normally dismiss as a "conspiracy theory." According to these news outlets, rogue cell phone towers known as "interceptors" have been discovered across America, and they don't belong to communications companies, the NSA or the U.S. military. They reportedly snoop on your private phone calls by intercepting cell phone signals, then relaying them to other towers.
"Rogue cell phone towers, the type that can intercept your mobile calls and data, are cropping up all over the United States, including here in Chicago," reports CBS News. (1)
"Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week," reports Reuters in an article on Yahoo Finance. (2) "Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts."
Even Computerworld got in on the story, writing that "CryptoPhone users found and mapped 17 fake cell towers in the U.S. during the month of July." (3)
The one conspiracy theory the media instantly believes?
What's fishy here is that this is precisely the kind of story the mainstream media would normally attack and disregard as a "conspiracy theory." Remember, this is the same mainstream media that has utterly censored and "memory holed" the recent confession of a CDC scientist who admitted to committing scientific fraud to hide links between MMR vaccines and autism. That story has been completely blacked out by the media as if it didn't exist.
This is also the same mainstream media that, for years, called people tin foil hat-wearing lunatics if they said the U.S. government was listening to our phone calls and monitoring our emails. Thanks to whistleblower Edward Snowden, of course, this is all out in the open now, but just five years ago anyone who dared suggest such a thing was labeled a "wing nut."
I remember Alex Jones being ridiculed over his breaking story that cities were installing street lamps that could listen to the verbal conversations of people passing by. That story once again turned out to be entirely true, yet it was widely disparaged by the mainstream media which seems to default to the phrase "conspiracy theory" any time they want to dismiss a true story without actually having to investigate it.
Never forget that the media is in the business of censoring the truth, not printing it
The mainstream media, you see, has always been stupidly slow to recognize reality. Anything that doesn't fall in line with barking orders from Washington D.C. or corporate sponsors has been ridiculed as a conspiracy theory or censored entirely. To this day, the media still ridicules all the architects and engineers who question the lunacy of the official 9/11 story. That official story still claims that the third building which collapsed that day -- WTC 7 -- magically lost all structural column support and collapsed in a perfect demolition footprint even though it was never struck by any airplane. The official story defies the laws of physics, yet the media has never had any problem with repeating it as if it were fact.
Yet now, this "interceptor cell tower" story is suddenly and instantly embraced across the mainstream media as true. All the media outlets that normally scream "conspiracy theory!" are reporting these secret cell towers as fact. Something's fishy here.
Remember: The mainstream media isn't in the "truth business." It's in the business of telling you what it wants you to know while ignoring anything it doesn't want you to know. If mainstream media stories are coming out about secret cell phone towers listening to your conversations, then there's a deliberate reason behind it.
It could be that this entire story is a hoax and they're watching to see who picks up on it. Later, they might run a new headline, "How we hoaxed the gullible internet with a goofy story about fake cell phone towers" or something similar.
Or, on the positive side of this, perhaps the mainstream media has finally realized it needs to start covering the truth from time to time in order to stop losing so many readers. While the alternative media has been exploding in popularity, the mainstream media has been bleeding out in terms of readership. The public craves the truth, and there is zero loyalty to mainstream news sources in the minds of content consumers.
Bottom line: Any story the mainstream media jumps on must be immediately questioned. This doesn't automatically mean the story isn't true, but we must always keep the real agenda of the media in mind as we analyze these developments.
