'Fake News' Photographer Admits: "We Lost Control Of The Narrative"

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

A National Geographic photographer has admitted that the viral image of a polar bear suffering from climate change is fake news almost a year later. “We had lost control of the narrative,” admitted Cristina Mittermeier, the photographer of the polar bear.

According to The Daily Wire, the magazine’s most viral video ever, which featured heart-wrenching images of a starving polar bear, perpetuated the narrative that the animal’s imminent death was caused by climate change. However, the climate change aspect of the story is void of any real evidence.   Mittermeier has now explained the climate change deception and fake news stunt National Geographic pulled in a piece titled “Starving-Polar-Bear Photographer Recalls What Went Wrong” for the magazine’s August issue.

“Photographer Paul Nicklen and I are on a mission to capture images that communicate the urgency of climate change. Documenting its effects on wildlife hasn’t been easy,” she wrote.

“With this image, we thought we had found a way to help people imagine what the future of climate change might look like. We were, perhaps, naive. The picture went viral - and people took it literally.

So basically, in summation, Mittermeier admitted that the images of the bony, emaciated polar bear were meant to sound an alarm about climate change, though now she is complaining that people took the image “literally” when that was the exact fake news message she wished to convey.

Perhaps people took the gloom-and-doom climate change narrative “literally” because National Geographic‘s first line of the video was, “This is what climate change looks like.

Oh, and let’s not leave out the fact that the words “climate change” were even emphasized. They were highlighted in the magazine’s signature yellow. “In retrospect, National Geographic went too far with the caption,” says Mittermeier.

National Geographic admits their mission is to propagate the minds of the public with scary images in order to call for more government control over the masses in order to confiscate even more money.  But it’s all for the greater good, right? In the video below, The Health Ranger explains how climate change alarmists have pulled off the most insane, large-scale mass hypnosis in human history.

And National Geographic has now admitted that they are doing their part to brainwash the masses into accepting the false narrative of climate change.

As noted by Fox News, experts have suggested that other reasons for the polar bear’s condition could have been old age, illness, or injury. Mittermeier even admitted that she could not say for sure “that this bear was starving because of climate change.”

"The picture went viral - and people took it literally."

You mean because you told them to take it literally?  I'm too lazy to look, but I'm sure the apologists are out saying it was the readers' fault for believing what they were told to believe, and that there will be no apology for lying.  Well, maybe a "sorry you fucked up and trusted us."

Another example of how Satan roams the earth searching for souls it can capture and drag to hell. I stopped believing in devils and stuff awhile back. But the Democrats and liberals have now awaken my senses to the facts there are, indeed, devils roaming the earth in the form of MSM, alt lefties, etc.

Evil does exist. They are proof.

Don't you love how easily the left uses the statement, "We had lost control of the narrative" when what they really mean is we lied.

The left is great at wordplay, too bad Americans with common sense can smell it a mile away.

Perhaps one of the reasons you've had trouble documenting its effects on wildlife is because wildlife is a lot more robust than you give them credit for. After all, the planet is constantly in a natural state of flux and they did manage to survive here for a long time already.

To the two photographers - you are Delusional gaslighting mendacious c***s. Trying to blame shift to diminish your role in transparent deception. "OHHHHH I SEEE! It's the READERS fault for taking your words literally and not reading your future intentions to invert what you said, or the publisher's fault for using your images the way you both meant them too!!! Ahhh I sseee! It's all OUR fault or Theirsssss!! Who's a naughty boy then!!"


(Faulty Towers catharsis)

Trying to reframe yourselves as passive victims rather than conscious agents of lying and propaganda. Fucking feminised sociopathy everywhere poisoning our culture. 

Dante had a deep place in hell for liers. Your warming fantasies will eventually be realised there perhaps .

This was posted as a reply to one of my (not very) informative posts: http://drtimball.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Polar-Bear2.pdf

It is actually a really good read, and goes into quite a lot of depth about who and why and how polar bear climate change propaganda came about. I didn't take a note of who posted it, but thank you none the less. 

Environmentalism  was  a  necessary  new  paradigm  when  it  first  appeared. Unfortunately,  a  few  used  the  idea  to  achieve  a  political  agenda  embodied  in  this comment  from  the  Club  of  Rome ,  a  global  think  tank  and  a  major  consultant United Nations  (U.N.): to  the “In  searching  for  a  new  enemy  to  unite  us,  we  came  up  with  the  idea  that  ..  the threat  of  global  warming..  would  fit  the  bill….  the  real  enemy,  then,  is  humanity itself…we  believe  humanity  requires  a  common  motivation,  namely  a  common adversary  in  order  to  realize  world  government.  It  does  not  matter  if  this  common enemy is  a  real  one  or…one  invented for the  purpose.”

RationalLuddite, that was the perfect post.

From Delusional gaslighting mendacious c***s to Fawlty towers, you have caught the spirit of the age perfectly.

I'm glad to see so many of you waking up to the reality that evil does exist, it can be identified by those who can think, and whether you sign up to or reject religious beliefs, the descriptions of the nature & functioning of evil has turned out to be quite on the money.

I see the Israeli program to hunt down all mentions of the Biblicism Institute is alive and well, even down to creating a list of ZH posters who 'sin'.

Glad to be on it.


The Israeli/pharisee/satanist/jew problem with Biblicism Institute articles is that they reference documents written by pharisees and published by Israeli government and historical organisations themselves so they are impossible to argue with, so the campaign to demonise any poster who mentions them commences. Powwow was a little singular and I didn't like his URL shortening, but his posts were at least short and to the point.

An example of Biblicism Institute research, all well worth reading for the historical truth of the khazars and the proof that they are pharisees and the eneimies of Jesus in ancient times.

Jewish-born historian Benjamin H. Freedman explained it thus:

“When the word ‘Jew’ was first introduced into the English language in the 18th century (1775) its one and only implication, inference and innuendo was ‘Judean’. During the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries a well-organized and well-financed international ‘pressure group’ created a so-called ‘secondary meaning’ for the word ‘Jew’ among the English-speaking peoples of the world. This so-called ‘secondary meaning’ for the word ‘Jew’ bears no relation whatsoever to the 18th century original connotation of the word ‘Jew’. It is a misrepresentation.”

Now philpat please stop spamming the forum like a demented pharisee and comment on the subject of the article.

It's hard to compete with someone who is smiling to your face and preaching co-operation as the way to go, whilst angling for the kill shot..

All the "Jews" I met as a kid were very careful to conceal their racial identity by means of deceit when asked, and showed themselevs to be skilled manipulators of our peers affections. I haven't met any "Jews" in adult life, as far as I know so I can't comment on how I find them as a group as an adult. Other races however, when I ignore the bullshit and just observe DO very often show collective traits, as any internationally trading businessman knows, of course.

As a kid I always wondered at how alien yet similar sounding the surnames were, of american politicians and the people creditted at the very end of hollywood pictures (I read EVERYTHING as a kid).

From what people on this site have gone to great pains to show me, I draw the conclusion that "Jews" as a race are notable by their dedication to preserving their "racial identity" by all and any means possible. Their racial identity seems to involve keenly honed competitive tendencies and broad spectrum fighting skills, resulting at one end of the bell curve in the demonstrable fact that jews seem to control a disproportionate amount of the worlds power and money. These peoeple are known here about as (((joos))) and their machinations and devices are clearly laid out across the internet, but they aren't alone. There are many more non-"jews" who show an all consuming lust for power and gratification, who co-operate gleely with or compete to outdo your (((Joos))) in the work of exalting themselves in every way above people like me (& probably you who is reading this too) to the exclusion of all other considerations. (((They)))'ll claim how they "work tirelessly to mange human affairs for the greater good" of course, but we all knwo who they are really. 

However, I have also learned that "Jews" are very intelligent, as whole when compared to my race, (& super intelligent when compared to some other races I could mention!) and since my own experience of intelligence is that it confers the abilty to get insight, it follows that a great many (I Like to imagine the majority) of "jews" are bright enough to see the repellant and ultimately futile nature of "me/us above all others". But the picture will be confused greatly, because such people will still tend to be competitive and capable because of their racial inheritance, and hence still will compete at an annoying sucessful and high level as "Jews" are famed for, but they'll be doing it for other reasons than those laid out in the (((protocols of zion))).

So. Given that the "Jews" as a people seem to have a special set of (Obviously powerful) talents, which a few (((special))) people seem to have been able to leverage to obtain what looks like a disproportionate percntage of power and position in american and other societies, and of course a greater percentage of them have used those innate charateristics in the pursuit of their private non (((global dominating))) interests, we can perhaps better undertsand in a rational way that there is indeed a "jewish problem" which needs addressing/handling with kindness.

Unlike the current (about to fail) approach of "pretend we are all the same" it's more about how we SHOULD be racially profiling them, understanding that they ARE likely to excel in certain areas appertaining to social organisation and big picture thinking, and stream out the ones who arre prepared to use their talents for the betterment of all, and socially identify the ones who aren't. Our current attitude toewards the (((jews))) is like living in the jungle and ignoring the lion who takes the occasional villager. We've tried (and thankfully failed) to kill all the "lions" on numerous occasions, perhaps how it's time to focus more on finding ways stopping them from eating us, and creating areas where they can just be "lions" without us having to kill them.


I'm not a great thinker, just a trier..

When the Aliens finally do rock up, and try to take over, we'll really need a bit of that "victory at any cost" (providing it isn't financially excessive to achieve :) jewishness on our side...

Was with the missus the other night and caught some random blurb in the background that Beyonce was righting a wrong at Vogue (Vogue!) by ensuring that they would have a black photographer's work on the cover.  Supposedly, in it's 100+ history, Vogue had NEVER had a black photographer's work on the cover.  First thing out of my mouth was, "And who the hell do you think the Vogue people have been voting for over the last 60 years?"  Liberals...they accuse everyone else of what they are plotting and actively doing. Freud called it projection.  Our forefathers called it perfidy.

It's 'too late' now ....

Too late for the truth to be as effective as the LIES originally were.  And thereby lies their plan.

Lie your asses off to create and control the agenda - make small-time tacit admission of guilt waaaay after the event when people have forgotten about it - by which time they've managed to implement measures against all credible supporting evidence to further their cause.

Cheating, lying, deceitful bastards.

Let's see how much publicity this admission gets and compare it to the publicity they sought (and got) when they made their lying shit statement.

Climate change isn't killing nature.  Habitat destruction is.

7 billion humans and counting.  Each additional person requires more land taken over for housing, farming, mining and manufacturing.  Animals get less and less space in worse areas.

If you love nature, find a way to stop niggers, spics, muzzies and asians from breeding like roaches.  Whites are already at steady state.

"The fact that speaks volumes is that they had to stop using the term "global warming" because global temperatures have actually dropped over the last 20 years."


Actually, according to NASA's unrestated numbers (ie before the global warming con-men can alter them), Temperatures are actually LOWER THAN 80 YEARS AGO.

Actually it was the readers' fault for believing what they read and saw. Virtually all media is propaganda. National Geographic lies to us? Who'd a thunk it. I used to look at National Geographic in the 1940s, but only for the tittie pictures of primitive natives who knew no better than to go naked.

Rather than blame the whores at National Geographic whose job it is to lie, blame the brain-dead fools who read and believe those lies.

Absolutely there was a member of England's House of Lords who PROVED it was BS and they THREW HIM OUT of the Global Warming conference, I think it was being held in Australia but it was only abut 4 years ago.
They are PUSHING an agenda, they want the masses to BELIEVE their Big Lie and it is not for the good of people but CONTROL and so they can pursue their aims.

Look at all the BS about Russia affecting the Presidential election.
There is an agenda and if you keep looking you'll find out what it is.
