Two Huge Suppressed News-Reports in a 3-Day Period Display Corrupt U.S.-&-Allied Mainstream Press

Eric Zuesse

On Friday, December 12th, Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept reported and documented that the mainstream U.S. press has lied through its teeth about “Russiagate,” and, two days later, Zero Hedge reported and documented that not only had the U.S., UK, and France, committed an international war-crime when they invaded Syria on 14 April 2018 firing 105 missiles against Damascus, but the U.N.-authorized agency OPCW that was supposed to investigate the U.S.-&-allied allegation which had been the alleged ‘justification’ for that invasion was instead lying through its teeth about what the evidence actually showed about it: that this invasion had been based upon U.S.-&-allied lies.

These lies by the U.S.-and-allied ’news’-media are not exceptions to the rule; they are the rule whenever anything happens that is contrary to the self-justificatory ‘journalism’, or actually propaganda-line, of the U.S., and of its allied governments.

The lying that got these countries into invading Iraq on 20 March 2003, and into invading Libya in 2011, and into invading and occupying Syria in 2012 until now, are not simply ‘errors’, but are instead systematic and intentional on the part of the news-managements of all of the major U.S.-&-allied ’news’-organizations, none of which will ‘rat’ on any others of them, because they all are in the same boat of liars, and for any one of them to expose the ‘journalistic’ fraudulence of any other of them would be to expose also themselves, because they’re all in the same racket: destroying democracy — making democracy in their own country an impossibility.

Why are there not consumer boycotts against each one of them? Could it be because they all are very successful in hiding from their respective publics their own criminality, their PR-gangland fascist operation?

Glenn Greenwald’s report was titled “The Inspector General’s Report on 2016 FBI Spying Reveals a Scandal of Historic Magnitude: Not Only for the FBI but Also the U.S. Media”.

Zero Hedge’s report was titled “New WikiLeaks Bombshell: 20 Inspectors Dissent From Syria Chemical Attack Narrative”.

Things like this don’t routinely happen in a democracy. They do happen routinely in the U.S.-&-allied countries.

Incidentally, Greenwald previously did a blockbuster news-report that’s closely related to the one he did on December 14th, and it was titled “The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing U.S. Media Failures on the Trump-Russia Story”. So: he has made this beat a particular specialty of his.

Anyone who subscribes to a major ‘news’-medium in the U.S.-and-allied countries is paying to be deceived.

When the truth comes out, there is always a media blackout. How long are people going to stay blind to the truth.

OPCW: Neutral or Neutered?

Two search words reveal all you need to know about our Goebellian world of journalism. ‘OPCW scandal’

Plug them in to your search engine of choice and notice that many dozens of alt-media sites but not one mainstream outlet comes up, other than a mention of Newsweek and its reporter that quit after having his OPCW story suppressed. (didn’t he know of Newsweek’s relationship with the Atlantic Council?)

Do three consecutive tranches of internal whistleblowers speaking out constitute a scandal?
Does the sun rise in the East and set in the West?

I mean no word about this in the mainstream media(except for maybe tucker carlson).

….and of course, were even one mainstream outlet dare to cover the scandal, a dozen others would obediently begin to bombard it with accusations of ‘falling prey to Russian propaganda’, We’ve seen how the game is played ad nauseam. No secrets there.

At some point this will come to an end. Its not sustainable.

I agree. It is not. It’s reaching its tipping point. The question is, will just one card fall or by all rights, will the entire deck of concoctions be put under long overdue scrutiny? They’ll fight tooth and nail to suppress the m.o. but they’re already shooting too many duds to sustain it. I guess we’ll see, won’t we? Don’t forget, in this case the entire credibility of the White Helmets and their supporters is at stake. Tooth and nail fight it’ll be.

The truth is, Public’s belief and faith in MSM is waning after they FAILED to bury trump with lies(even the impeachment circus isnt getting that much support anymore).

This general public perception is sort of floating in the clouds over their heads so far, with nothing concrete (i.e. specific MSM coverage) to make the clouds rain. That’s the job of today’s MSM, to keep the clouds from raining. True and honest journalism MAKES the clouds rain, and spew its secrets forth. There’s the rub.

Political Meteorologist sums it up well. And unfortunately, I think it should be clear at this point that it IS sustainable. The elites have no interest in fooling the relatively tiny group of people that follow sites like the Duran, RT or Guns and Butter, we are not their target audience, and they DONT care what we think/know. As far as the mainstream semi-literate blue pilled mouth breathers, THATS their target audience, and they have it well covered. The reason these two stories are big “nothing burgers” are that those of us that care about whats happening in the world… Read more »

Binney came out a few days back with yet more evidence that all these hacks empowering Mueller were domestic and Gucifer 2.0 was prob. CIA, to firmly plant Russia into the equation.

The guy’s former technical director of the NSA and accusing his own, for Christ’s sake. When he speaks, the world should be listening.

Just watch the infantile way they try to discredit him, to an infantile public. Goebbels knew such tactics work and work well. Apparently, so do we.

Dead on Yankee Doodle, if someone like Binney isn’t being heard, there really isn’t ANY hope for a mainstream expose, and its time we realize that. Its not 1972 anymore, not by a LONG SHOT.
