Afghan Papers Inadvertently Document WaPo’s Role in Spreading Official Lies\

 

columns calling for or assuming a military response to the attacks were given a great deal of space, while opinions urging diplomatic and international law approaches as an alternative to military action were nearly nonexistent.

Why Bernie Sanders Is Absolutely Correct About the Washington Post—and Corporate Media Overall

It makes you wonder where career self-interest ends and sincere delusion begins.

THE WASHINGTON POST thinks it can buy credibility at the Super Bowl. Fake News is indeed a problem, and the Post has been at the forefront of that problem. It has ties to the CIA through its owner, Amazon Zillionaire Jeff Bezos (not a part of the Super Bowl ad?). The Post has a history of serial fabrications, like this one:

“From Russian hackers burrowed deep within the US electrical grid, ready to plunge the nation into darkness at the flip of a switch, an hour and a half later the story suddenly became that a single non-grid laptop had a piece of malware on it and that the laptop was not connected to the utility grid in any way.”

‘Fake News’ And How The Washington Post Rewrote Its Story On Russian Hacking Of The Power Grid

 

So, the Russians aren’t about to wipe us out after all. Quite fast and loose with the “facts” however.

Even MORE egregious was the “PropOrNot” fakery scandal.

‘Resistance’ Media Side With Trump to Promote Coup in Venezuela

In reality, Venezuela has one of the most intensely monitored election system in the world, and the government called on the United Nations to send observation teams. This was blocked by the US on the grounds that the UN would “validate” the elections. Despite this, numerous international election monitoring organizations attended and attested to the vote’s quality. For example, the report of the African Nations’ delegation stated:

The Venezuelan people who chose to participate in the electoral process of May 20 were not subject to any external pressures, and carried out their right to vote in a peaceful and civil manner which we commend. As such, we implore the international community to abide by international law and the principles of self-determination and recognize what we consider to be a free, fair, fully transparent and sovereign election.

Who killed Bobby Kennedy? His son RFK Jr. doesn’t believe it was Sirhan Sirhan.

 

Robert Kennedy Jr. does NOT believe the “lone nut gunman” theory posited by the US government. The government was on a lawless crime spree in the late 1960s. After whacking a president they next killed Martin Luther King Jr., presidential candidate Robert Kennedy, and Malcolm X, among others. This is not taught in history books. US children are not educated but indoctrinated.

 

Iran-encircled2

 

Israelis, Saudis AND ALL THEIR US SYMPATHIZERS in the corporate media push this fake narrative about Iran having a “nuclear weapons program.” It doesn’t.

Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program. Why do media keep saying it does?

spreading this falsehood in just the past five days:

  • Business Insider (10/13/17): The deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), aims to incentivize Iran to curb its nuclear weapons program by lifting crippling international economic sanctions.”

  • New Yorker (10/16/17): “One afternoon in late September, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called a meeting of the six countries that came together in 2015 to limit Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”

  • Washington Post (10/16/17): “The administration is also considering changing or scrapping an international agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”

  • CNN (10/17/17): “In reopening the nuclear agreement, [Trump] risks having Iran advance its nuclear weapons program at a time when he confronts a far worse nuclear challenge from North Korea that he can’t resolve.”

Parry is now the go-to news source in America, of only a handful of journalists worthy of trust. America has drowned in lies.

The Existential Question of Whom to Trust

Instead, careerism is the order of the day among journalists, intelligence analysts and international monitors – meaning that almost no one who might normally be relied on to tell the truth can be trusted.

…For instance, The New York Times’ Pentagon correspondent Michael R. Gordon, who was the lead writer on the infamous “aluminum tubes for nuclear centrifuges” story which got the ball rolling for the Bush administration’s rollout of its invade-Iraq advertising campaign in September 2002, still covers national security for the Times – and still serves as a conveyor belt for U.S. government propaganda.

…The Washington Post’s editorial page editor Fred Hiatt, who repeatedly informed the Post’s readers that Iraq’s secret possession of WMD was a “flat-fact,” is still the Post’s editorial page editor, one of the most influential positions in American journalism.

Tillerson, in diplomatic debut, urges Russia to pull back in eastern Ukraine

Unbelievable, blatant lies: 

“The conflict began when Russia annexed Crimea in 2014,” 

NO, Washington Post, it most certainly did not. You missed the illegal Washington/EU sponsored coup of January and February of 2014. That’s quite a deliberate omission, making you, clearly, FAKE NEWS again.

The elected President of Ukraine was violently overthrown by extreme right fascist parties backed by Victoria Nuland and Obama. The USA supported neo-nazis, and the people of the eastern Ukraine rejected their foreign-sponsored debacle. THAT is when the “conflict began.”
