The two greatest video news-reports of the past decade were not telecast on CBS “60 Minutes” or BBC or any other network, but on youtube, posted there by the creator, in each of the two instances astoundingly gifted independent video-journalists, who got virtually everything exactly right, when virtually all of the mainstream ‘news’-media were getting it wrong and deceiving the public about what had happened and why. Here are the two videos:

Because of the atrociously poor-quality ‘news’-reporting by the mainstream (and almost all of the non-mainstream) U.S. ‘news’-media, here are the consequences of each of the those two widely-falsely-reported events:


Portland Rittenhouse Protest Escalates Into Riot

Update (Saturday 0715 ET): The reports turned out to be correct. Protests were seen in multiple cities, and a riot was declared in Portland, Oregon, hours after Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal. Protests were observed in downtown Brooklyn, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; and Portland, Oregon. Focusing on Portland, a riot was declared at 9 p.m.

WaPo Deletes Multiple Gunmen & Gunshots in “Visual Forensic” Kyle Rittenhouse Report

A few months after Kyle Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two, in Kenosha, the Washington Post’s ” Visual Forensics ” investigation was placed at the top of YouTube search results. However, WaPo’s report omits key details, including the identity of the first gunman, several gunshots from the crowd, and the fact that the last man shot by Rittenhouse had a gun in his hand pointed towards Rittenhouse.

All of the U.S.-and-allied actions against Russia — the restoration of the Cold War by them — have followed from not only the accusations that Russia has been a threat to ‘Ukrainian democracy’, but from the hysteria that ‘justifies’ the existence of NATO (America’s anti-Russian alliance) after Russia had terminated its side of the Cold War in 1991. Here are some of the news-reports that I have done on that:

Of course, there also have been predominantly false and propagandistic ‘news’-reports the led to or ‘justified’ America’s involvements in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and almost everywhere else that the U.S. regime has invaded and militarily occupied during the present century. Americans have a plethora of good reasons for losing trust in U.S. ‘news’-media. The situation is now so bad that any intelligent and well-informed person in the U.S. recognizes that America’s ‘news’-media are actually no better than being propaganda-media — because that’s what they have become.

The two stellar brief videos that are highlighted here at the top, show that it’s not for lack of available talent that America has become a sewer of propaganda; it’s because that is what the owners of those ‘news’-media want them to be. They hire the right ‘talents’ for that purpose.

Great article Eric. There were a good number of people brought in from other countries. The fact you had the protestors speaking to each other in Esperanto verifies that fact. It’s used in place of Russian that was used between people of different countries in Eastern Europe.
