Yet again, the alternative media has proven that it remains ahead of the corporate media’s analysis curve, leaving pundits at FOX, CNN, MSNBC and every major newspaper still scratching their heads.
A full day before Washington made its announcement, Patrick Henningsen, Editor of 21st Century Wire went live on air Tuesday with Russia Today TV stating conclusively, “There will be no photos or video released (of Osama bin Laden’s final minutes) at all.”
On Wednesday, the White House validated 21st Century Wire’s prediction as President Barack Obama stated that he will not to release any of the photographs of “the deceased Osama bin Laden,” according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
21st Century Wire beats Obama to the punch by predicting no photo evidence would be produced.
Regarding this latest scoop, Editor Patrick Henningsen explains, “If you have been paying attention to this story over the last 8 years, then it’s not very difficult to predict this. If you apply basic common sense, the evidence weighs in favour of Osama bin Laden having died years ago. Or you can choose to believe the Hollywood version of events that we have been fed over the years, one which requires no effort.”

Henningsen adds, “The official announcement that Washington will not be releasing bin Laden photos was made because there are no genuine photos of Sunday’s alleged assassination. No body, no photos, no video- no evidence. All you get in the end is the official gospel for the public to believe. It’s another example of the public switching off their critical faculties, whilst being instructed what to think by Washington and the mainstream media machine.”

For those who follow the news via alternative sources, this incident will come as no surprise, but this scoop speaks volumes. With daily budgets in the millions, audiences should seriously question whether the corporate mainstream media deserve to their title of “free press”, or “watchdog”.
Meanwhile millions of viewers a day are migrating away for the major networks and newspapers, opting instead to pursue their own credible content and independent analysis online
