The Tower Shooting, KTBC, and the Media Matrix
KTBC and the Rise of the Matrix
The OP features a news clip from KTBC
. I was curious as to how this news clip survived as the record of this 1966 shooting massacre. I did some checking and this station is, indeed, known for it's coverage the event:
This multi-network capability
was first demonstrated live on August 1, 1966, following the UT Tower sniper incident
. After Charles Whitman's sniper rampage had been stopped, the primary newsman on the scene, Neal Spelce, presented a concise, complete wrap-up of the event that was carried on all three networks live later that evening
. Although the connections were later replaced by satellite uplink technology, the lines were maintained for contingency usage for several years.
The "multi-network capability"
refers to the fact that KTBC carried all four major newsmedia networks and was, thus, able to broadcast the same information (propaganda) to everyone watching "the news". This was a large step toward centralization of the various collaborating, corporate-owned news outlets, or what I like to call the media matrix
In the case of the tower shooting, the propaganda delivered to the major networks was the "concise, complete wrap-up of the event" given to us by Neal Spelce, who began the "high-tech (matrix) revolution" in Austin and served on four bank boards (which gives as an idea as to where he's coming from).
Now would be a good time to recall that Austin has now become the base of operations for the Alex Jones Show, the center of the alternative media (the controlled opposition to the media matrix). It should be noted that KTBC was the first television station in Austin and Central Texas
. It was thus one of the early major outposts for the broadcast of the media reality.
Interestingly, the stationed signed onto air on November 27 (11/27/1952), five
days after a date that would become forever associated with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy only eleven
years later. KTBC was originally owned by the Texas Broadcasting Company
, which was owned by no less than Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson
, who entered the White House by default after the removal of President Kennedy. All of these connections to President Kennedy again bring the similarities between Whitman and Oswald into focus, as well as the fact that there was less than three years between the assassination and the tower shooting.
CBS and KTBC
Until 1995, the KTBC station was largely a CBS affiliate, carrying 65% of their programming. The founder and chairman of CBS, William S. Paley, had served in the psychological warfare branch in the Office of War Information during the second world war. It doesn't take much paranoia to become very suspicious when a major "news" outlet is created and chaired by a man who served the military in such a capacity during the second world war. Indeed, it does not end there. Paley had been a trustee of the Rockefeller family's Museum of Modern Art in the 1930s. In 1962, David Rockefeller (who was then chair of the Museum of Modern Art) made Paley the museum's president. In 1968, Paley joined a "syndicate" of art collectors that included Rockefeller in a bid to purchase six works of Picasso from the Gertrude Stein collection.
Prescott Bush was on the board of directors of CBS. He (along with two more generations of his family) belonged to the Order of Skull & Bones at Yale University. His family has direct ties to 9/11, the Iraq war (Iraq War II), the Gulf War (Iraq War I), the Kennedy assassination, the opening of trade ties with China, the drug trade, various strongman dictators, terrorist groups, and the BCCI. Indeed, his family is an example of the kind of royalty house
that pulls the world's strings. However, it's power pales in comparison to that of the Rockefeller family, for whom Paley (founder and chairman of CBS) appeared to be an operative.
It should also be noted that Dan Rather was working as a reporter for CBS at the time of the Kennedy assassination. He was one of the few shown the Zapruder film before it's release 11
years after the assassination. Of course, it was in the custody of Time-Life
- also under control of the military-intelligence complex and wealthy elite. The film was also completely fabricated, as an abundance of research by credible analysts has shown. Among the methods of fakery used were layering
methods similar to those used in the fabrication of TV broadcasts on 9/11. Rather may have been shown an earlier version of the fake film, but he falsely reports that it depicts Kennedy's head being thrown violently forward (in contradiction with what the fake film itself shows).
The bottom line is that CBS
(which is now one of the largest generators of fake news) was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the media matrix at the time in question, and KTBC was it's affiliate.
KTBC: Target Austin
In 1960, KTBC staff produced a twenty-minute scaremongering PSYOPS film called Target Austin
for the Texas Department of Public Safety. The plotline depicted a nuclear missile strike on Austin. It can be viewed here:

The writer and narrator, Cactus Pryor, was a broadcaster whose career began on 590KLBJ, the radio station owned by Lady Bird Johnson (wife of Lyndon B. Johnson). He claims to have been one of the first to have heard about the death of President Kennedy, and was at Lyndon Johnson's ranch at the time of the event. Pryor also appeared in the military propaganda film The Green Berets
(the production of which was heavily aided and approved by the Pentagon). Pryor was also a programming manager and a host of many shows at KTBC.
Helping with the film was the U.S. Military at Bergstrom Air Force Base and the State Office of Civil Defense and Mobilization.
--The movie is introduced as "a presentation of KTBC-TV's Project 7"
is a number that figures prominently in media fakery events.
--The ominous music played as the narrator (Pryor) describes a warm summer day resembles the opening of a cheesy horror movie, revealing the fear agenda of the film. The atmosphere reminds one of the beginning of September 11, 2001, as a beautiful summer morning.
--One of the landmarks featured in the film early on in is the University of Texas, and the camera shot has the clocktower in the center.
--After showing the University of Texas, the next landmark is the Paramount theater
, symbolizing film, staged scenarios, and the media matrix
. Paramount was, like other major studios, under the control of the military-intelligence complex.
--The brutal, slow radiation death of the man who did not follow civil defense orders is featured near the end while happy music plays and the narrator (Pryor) says (with dry humor) that the news is of no consequence to him, while describing how happy the other characters are (who followed orders). This is a disturbing, militaristic way of making a horrific example out of the one who does not follow the orders broadcast over the radio.
