National secret services want to control everything and have people at many positions including journalists. A director of the CIA once said that it was very easy to get cooperation from many journalists, an extra fifty to hunderd dollars a month would do the job in most cases. And if you do a good job, you may be promoted and become part of the wonderful criminal world of secret services. An example is a journalist of Dutch local newspaper NRC Handelsblad who became a spokesman of the AIVD, the Dutch secret service.
If a journalist (or in fact any person) reveals the truth about the practices of the a secret service, they simply eliminate him, they don’t care if other people die as well. Nobody will believe you crash a plane with hundred people just to kill one person. Who would believe that somebody would go that far to prevent the truth to be revealed. ‘On Saturday, May 5, Anthony Mitchell died *in the crash of Kenyan Airways Flight 507, which killed all 114 people on board. Based in Nairobi, he was an Associated Press reporter who had recently broken a story on secret prisons in Ethiopia and the U.S. involvement in the detention and interrogation of prisoners there. The world has lost another journalist, one who was taking the necessary risks to get at the heart of the complex and often ignored story of Africa.’

When the truth starts traveling around and cannot be stopped annymore, the psychopats simply use simple but effective methods to block news agencies, hoping that the effects will be minimal. Example: when media attention started growing for the website because a popular weblog/newslog payed attention to the phenomenon gang stalking, website www.groepstalking.nl they simply cut a power cable to the national and commercial broadcasting studios. Who would believe that somebody would go that far to prevent the truth to be revealed.
