Amy Goodman, Dan Rather Feign Ignorance of Bilderberg
June 8, 2008
In the Minnesota Change video at left, Dan Rather and Amy Goodman are asked point-blank about Bilderberg and their responses are, to say the least, very interesting.
Dan Rather feigns ignorance. However, according to Bilderberg researcher and journalist Daniel Estulin, Rather, formerly of CBS News, is a member in good standing (see Bill Gallagher’s review of Estulin’s book, The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group). Moreover, on May 18, 2003, Paris Indymedia reported spotting Rather attending a Bilderberg meeting in Paris at the posh Trianon Hotel Palace.
Amy Goodman appears to have no overt connection to the Bilderbergers, but it is difficult to believe she is unaware of the group. Her Democracy Now program receives funding from Pacifica, the Ford Foundation, and the Lannan Foundation. The Ford Foundation directly funds the Bilderbergers, taking up where the CIA left off (see Bilderberg entry at SourceWatch). As James Petras notes, the CIA has a history of using the Ford Foundation to fund “cultural fronts” like Democracy Now.
Finally, according to a letter posted on the Educate Yourself website, Eban Ray of KPFK radio in Los Angeles inadvertently revealed that the Rockefeller Foundation funds Democracy Now. It is common knowledge that David Rockefeller, a consummate and proudly declared globalist, attended the inaugural Bilderberg meeting in 1954 and has occupied a prominent place on the steering committee ever since.
Goodman’s facial expression, when asked about the Bilderbergs, in the video above is priceless, so much so Minnesota Change decided to freeze-frame it and add the Jeopardy theme song.
