The Piltdown Man Effect (Fake News & Operation Mockingbird)

First, let’s start off with what the Piltdown man is.

Piltdown Man is a creation of Charles Dawson, an archaeologist who claimed in 1912 that he had found evidence that man evolved from apes.  This evidence became a phenomenon & would take over 40 years to be debunked by science.  Dawson assembled various parts of the human & orangutan anatomy; calling it the Eoanthropus dawsoni (“Dawson’s dawn man”).

Mainstream media ran the new discovery under headlines such as…

The Piltdown Man is considered one of the greatest hoaxes for many reasons.  Until 2016, the method of Dawson’s scam was unknown.  In 2003 research conducted by Bournemouth University showcased the extensive forgery Dawson committed (38 specimens were deemed fake).  1953-2003 was stagnant.


  • 1953: Hoax is revealed.
  • 2003: Bournemouth debunks Dawson’s career.
  • 2016: The developmental process of Dawson’s forgery comes to light.

Mainstream media not only promoted a hoax, but it also provided no research on the project at-the-time.  No independent research took place & no verification process was enacted by the Government.  How could such an extraordinary & historic discovery fool the majority of the public?  Why would mainstream media publish such material without proper protocol?  A conspiracy devised by ONE MAN blinded millions, including the prestigious New York Times.

The Reverse Piltdown Man Effect

If a hoax of such magnitude can deceive a mass population for the longevity of 40+ years; could a reverse scenario take place?  Could a situation this great in-depth actually become true?  Similar to the findings of the Piltdown Man proved to be a fake?  And if so, what would mainstream media say about it?  Here are more samples of MSM articles.

Lately, news outlets have issued articles that debunk a conspiracy known as Pizzagate; they’ve challenged & written articles with only snippets of information provided for their backing — instead labeling the theory as “insane” and the product of the “alt-right.”  This is deemed to be a hoax/conspiracy with no backing… yet the same media that projects this secret complex information is the same media who promoted false scientific claims from an egotistic archaeologist (Dawson).  The same scenario can be applied to the moon landing or any other conspiracy.  How would the media react to newfound information proving a conspiracy to be true?

Current quotes from articles of MSM

Welch told police Sunday evening that he went to Comet Ping Pong in order to investigate “Pizzagate,” a fictional conspiracy theory that popped up during the election season and made the restaurant the unlikely center of far-right outrage predicated on hacked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The restaurant, which also hosts music shows, announced last Thursday it would add security to its music shows following intense, mostly remotely conducted harassment of the venue and its employees.” Washingtonian

They label it a “fictional conspiracy theory”.  I thought conspiracy theories were already labeled as “fictional” due to the nature of attention the word receives from MSM.  Now they’re making sure to add the extra padding… FICTIONAL.

“Edgar M. Welch, 28, of Salisbury, N.C., was arrested Sunday after firing a gun inside a pizza restaurant in Washington as he investigated false claims in online articles that the pizzeria was at the center of a child sex slave ring, the police said. No one was injured by the gunfire, and Mr. Welch surrendered peacefully. The pizzeria, Comet Ping Pong, had been swept into a conspiracy theory, which linked the supposed ring to Hillary Clinton because its owner had corresponded with the Clinton campaign about a fund-raising dinner.” – The “Prestigious” New York Times

Nothing to state about the above quote.  The New York Times holds no weight in the news anymore; they were the original “Fake News” template.

Operation Mockingbird

This was the first “fake news” initiative created & put into effect during the 1950’s-1970s.  It basically swayed the views of public opinion by inserting fake news led by journalists of the mainstream media.  This was also used in international campaigns to broadcast propaganda to countries interested in American culture & news.


The Family Jewels report also backs this operation.  A “misconduct guide” that presents the influence and illegal activities of the CIA.
