RED FLAG: Homeland Security Hiring “Media Monitoring Services” to Compile Journalist and Media Influencer Database
By The Daily Bell Staff - April 07, 2018

On April 3rd the Department of Homeland Security posted an ad to (Federal Business Opportunities). That is the government’s website where they post contractor work.

DHS is looking for “Media Monitoring Services.”

They want a database with built-in search and alert features. The DHS is looking for something that they can search to see which publications, journalists, and social media influencers are talking about the DHS, and what they are saying.


The contractor shall provide NPPD/OUS with traditional and social media monitoring and communications solutions.


Services shall enable NPPD/OUS to monitor traditional news sources as well as social media, identify any and all media coverage related to the Department of Homeland Security or a particular event. Services shall provide media comparison tools, design and rebranding tools, communication tools, and the ability to identify top media influencers.

The DHS wants the ultimate surveillance dashboard where they can know real time anything anyone is saying about them around the world.

Ability to track global online sources for coverage relevant to Washington and the six media hubs:

  • Ability to track > 290,000 global news sources
  • Ability to track online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, local sources, national/international outlets, traditional news sources, and social media

They want to monitor worldwide media that has any mention of the Department of Homeland Security, or any specific event that they are interested in.

They make repeated mention of social media. This is not just journalists the DHS will monitor, it is any conversation on social media which mentions the DHS.

  • Overview of search results in terms of online articles and social media conversations

They literally want the name of every Facebook and Twitter user that mentions the DHS. They will also have the ability to zero-in on everyone discussing a mass shooting or terrorist attack.

  • Ability to analyze the media coverage in terms of content, volume, sentiment, geographical spread, top publications, media channels, reach, AVE, top posters, influencers, languages, momentum, circulation.

The DHS will have the breakdown of who supports them, and who doesn’t. They will know who is gaining traction with their message, and who is not. They will know what locations support the DHS, and which regions are full of dissidents.

  • Ability to build media lists based on beat, location, outlet type/size, and journalist role

They are making a naughty and nice list.

  • For each influencer found, present contact details and any other information that could be relevant, including publications this influencer writes for, and an overview of the previous coverage published by the media influencer

The DHS will profile any journalist that has been critical of the agency.

But they will also have access to any influencers who could spin the DHS in a positive light.

This is all on the official government website. No conspiracy theory, no secret sources. They said it openly.

This can be viewed two ways, and will likely be utilized in both.

The DHS will chill free speech since journalists and media outlets now know they will be closely watched for mentioning the Department of Homeland Security.

The DHS will spread pr0-DHS propaganda through social media influencers and friendly news sources.

This absolutely goes contrary to the First Amendment, to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Media will be profiled and monitored based on their coverage of the Department of Homeland security. Journalists now know that if they criticize the DHS, they will come under the scrutiny.

They are watching you. They know what you say about them. They know where you live, who you work for, and how to contact you.

The message is clear. Watch who you criticize.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

    Hey Department of Homeland Security – monitor this: the people are aware that DHS is a most prominent agency of surveillance, violence, and terror in service of the state. We know you’re armed to the teeth and that your sphere of operation will eventually be against citizens. And people like me wonder how you can look at yourselves in the mirror without throwing up in your own mouths given that you’re simply a low-quality re-hash of the Schutzstaffel. File that in your media monitoring bin.

      Ain’t no fear. I refuse to live that way.
      So I say hound of heaven… “Sic em”.
      Wear them down and tear them up spiritually unto exposure, brokenness and repentance.
      May everyone in America including those in the DHS and other three letter agencies burn until the pure holiness of Yehovah is fully revealed into His glory!
      Holy fire burning from within till all the people’s of the earth bow before Him. His kingdom come.

  • This is just another example of gov agencies gone rogue. They are all various forms of control mechanisms and many are well past outside of what we used to call our laws, like DOJ, FBI, IRS and DHS just for starters.

    I would point out that we do not have much real journalism/press any longer, so this comment is not very accurate “This absolutely goes contrary to the First Amendment, to freedom of speech and freedom of the press.” . Many supposed journalist who work for PRAVDA/MSM are in fact receiving money from CIA and other gov entities. So apparently there is some sort of conflict of interest going on here within gov entities ?One hiring supposed journalist to tell lies and distort perspectives, another now wanting to monitor such things and social media as well ?

    None of this should be allowed to happen for many valid reasons. Americans are very slow to grasp many matters and then they wonder what happened after the fact as if it was not all well known the entire time ! They have become fat, dumb, spoiled, apathetic and lazy and that is a big part of the problem we all face today !

    I suspect the “Five Eyes” (essentially, the Anglosphere) and NATO will also have access to this database. Don’t like Turdeau, gun control and carbon tax? I’m sure these are not only searchable but have default algorithms. Only in America, you say? I doubt it. I’m sure by now “fusion centers” have gone global.

  • California is already USING information from social media such as described in the article.

    Interview With Prepper: ‘We Were Held Without Charges’ For Survivalist Facebook Posts


    It is no longer a conspiracy theory, but a fact that people are being specifically targeted for their participation in what some call “prepping” and others dub survivalism. A couple from California had their home raided and were held without charges for making non-violent posts on Facebook about survival techniques and thought-provoking discussions.
