Harry The ‘Traitor’ And Lynch ‘The Grinch’ – The Corporate Media’s Automatic Smear Machine

Thursday, 19 January 2023 — Media Lens

If we were to choose a hill to die on, it would probably not be in defence of a British prince.

In truth, we don’t need to like or support – and may even abhor – the targets of media bias highlighted in our analyses. Our goal is simply to provide examples that most clearly expose the propaganda function of ‘mainstream’ media. Inevitably, that involves our focusing on thorns in the Establishment’s side.

No doubt millions of people felt a heartfelt attachment to the Queen, which will be displayed fully in the next few days.
