Great Tragedies Enabled by Media Cover-Ups

It is sometimes referred to as loss of media freedoms in the United States. The truth is much worse. Corruption-fighting-activist Rodney Stich has accumulated a record of repeated cover-ups by media corporations of serious hardcore corruption in the three branches of the federal government. Misconduct that inflicted or enabled great harm, death, and catastrophic events to occur and affect individual people, important national issues, and national security. Harm that would not have occurred if the prior media cover-up had not occurred.

Various reasons exist for cover-up of these matters by the U.S. media:

List of Letters Sent to the Media Reporting the
Corrupt Activities Affecting National Security

Federal agents, including Captain Rodney Stich and his coalition of other government agents and insiders, had sent letters to media people specifically describing the corruption in government offices that was inflicting great harm upon national security and other national interests. Among the issues presented to the recipients that Stich and his group of other government agents had discovered included, for instance:

Not once was there a meaningful response. Almost every form of criminal activities described in the books written by these agents were made known to broadcast and print media personnel, and not a single one reacted, enabling the related harmful consequences to continue.

Years of preventable airline disasters, CIA drug smuggling into the United States, secret funding of Iraq during the 1980s, and many other corrupt activities were included in the reports offered to the media by a group of sophisticated government insiders. Never once did they respond, making possible great harm to America and its people. Below are a few of the letters that were sent, and more will be added as time permits.

The Media recipients Knew That:

The recipients also obviously recognized that covering up the information that was being provided to them, by not insuring that meaningful hearings were held to allow Stich and his group of other former government agents to provide evidence:

Progression of Consequences


These few examples of the horrors associated with airline disasters enabled to occur by documented corruption withheld from the American people. The standard culture of cover-ups in the United States enabled the corruption, cover-ups, to mutate into different areas.

Department of Justice prosecutorial misconduct, people being falsely charged with crimes in order to improve the prosecutors' career.

    In the aviation area, although the continuing series of airline disasters eventually came to a halt for other reasons, the culture continued, and enabled to occur a number of easily preventable airline disasters. The inbred culture created the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to easily hijack four airliners within a few hours of each other and kill nearly 3,000 people.

Victims of Less Catastrophic Events

There were many other forms of victims from the systemic high-level corruption. These included for instance victims of the:




The New York Times is one of the main newspapers in the United States, that has covered for hardcore criminal misconduct in high government positions, conduct that inflicted or enabled great harm, deaths, and repeated catastrophic events. In 2014, the ombudsmen for the New York Times, Margareta Sullivan, unaware of the prior cover-ups, and probably unaware of the existence of the corruption in government, responded in writing to corruption-fighting-activist, Rodney Stich. She reflected her concern and stated she was making the information known to key people at the Times. A sampling of the emails are at New York times ombudsman Sullivan.


There was no further response from the New York Times. To have now responded would have revealed the decades of prior cover-ups of hardcore corruption in the three branches of the federal government that inflicted or enabled great harm, deaths, and repeated catastrophic events to occur. Most of these could have been prevented if the New York Times management had reported the enabling corruption. But once they were implicated, they had to continue the practice, regardless of the consequences to the people and the nation.


Years earlier, in 1989, corruption-fighting activist Rodney Stich, filed a lawsuit against the New York Times and several other newspapers for the purpose of getting information  to the general public about the corrupt conduct associated with some of the major problems and events, such as the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, CIA drug smuggling, and other problems, and exposing the media cover-ups that enabled the misconduct in government to continue.











Many other letters were sent to media people, starting in the mid-1960s while Stich was a federal agent with direct hands-on responsibilities where some of the nation's worst airline disasters occurred due to the corruption that he discovered and tried to report.


Later, as CIA and other insiders started to provide him with information on criminal activities in areas other than aviation, starting in the late 1980s, he again reported these matters to media people. And again, each acted to protect the high-level corruption in government, making possible the culture that brought upon the American people, and others, great tragedies. Sampling of these other letters will be uploaded as time permits (and if, in the mid-80s, Stich survives long enough!).
