Selected Articles: A Corrupted View of Reality in the Western Media

26 May 2017 — Global Research

Below is a selection of recent articles which bring to the forefront the process of media disinformation which supports a corrupt and criminal political agenda.

In the words of award winning investigative reporter Robert Parry (see article below):

“The mainstream U.S. media is congratulating itself on its courageous defiance of President Trump and its hard-hitting condemnations of Russia, but the press seems to have forgotten that its proper role within the U.S. democratic structure is not to slant stories one way or another but to provide objective information for the American people.”

What this suggests is that more than ever we need to stand together to continuously question politics, false statements, and the suppression of independent thought.

The Assassination of Seth Rich, the DNC Emails and the Russia Probe

By Caitlin Johnstone, May 25, 2017

This is unsurprisingly getting zero mainstream attention, but all the Russia hysteria that has engulfed American discourse has actually placed all terrestrial life in grave danger. Dr. Stephen Cohen, easily the foremost American authority on US-Russia relations, said in an interview with RT last week that this may be the most dangerous that tensions between the two nations have ever been in his lifetime. Cohen was born in 1938.

Never Mind the Real Russia, This Is All About Trump

I jumped in and said, “Yes, you’re absolutely right. Get rid of these statues. There are some other reasons, too, to get rid of these statues. They’re war statues. The only statues we have here in Charlottesville are war statues. There are no peace statues. There are no anything else statues. There are no civil rights statues, no women’s rights statues, no labor movement statues.

Truth Has Become Un-American

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, May 24, 2017

Democracy in America has been destroyed by special interest groups, by a US Supreme Court decision that gave the reins of power to special interest groups, and by a hoax war on terror that has destroyed the US Constitution. And here we have the presstitutes saying that Putin is destroying American democracy. Clearly, there is no extant intelligence anywhere in the Western media. The Western presstitutes are either corrupt beyond belief or ignorant beyond belief. Nothing else can be said for them.

US Journalism’s New ‘Golden Age’?

By Robert Parry, May 24, 2017

The mainstream U.S. news media has neither corrected the false assertion about the 17 intelligence agencies nor demanded that actual evidence be made public to support the key allegation that Russia was the source of WikiLeaks’ email dumps.

Why Americans Distrust the Press More Than They Distrust Trump

By Eric Zuesse, May 05, 2017

Trust in the ‘news’ media is sinking, but remains unrealistically high, unrealistic especially amongst Democrats (since they still overwhelmingly trust the ‘news’); and this trust is the chief thing that keeps the U.S. regime — both the “Democratic” and the “Republican” wings of it — in power, as a two-Party dictatorship, both of whose Parties represent the same aristocracy.
