My regulars know that I do not like nor trust the Mainstream Media (MSM) with the news of the day. And the incident with the missiles and the Syrian airfield are no different.
The MSM has been a cheerleader for the warmongers for decades…..and this most recent missile strike is no different……even the great Brian Williams sounded giddy when the attack occurred…..it was just sick…..
Amazing how fast Trump went from “dud” to “dude” and all it took was a couple of missiles.
Below is a list of the top news sources that have done nothing but cheer lead the attack……
Five major US newspapers—the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and New York Daily News—offered no opinion space to anyone opposed to Donald Trump’s Thursday night airstrikes. By contrast, the five papers ran a total of 18 op-eds, columns or “news analysis” articles (dressed-up opinion pieces) that either praised the strikes or criticized them for not being harsh enough:
NO negative PR from the leaders in news….go figure.
Plus the same media is leading the calls for escalation in Syria……
The mainstream U.S. media now reports as “flat-fact” the Syrian government’s guilt in the April 4 chemical weapons incident, but the real facts are less clear and some point in the opposite direction.
Historian and journalist Stephen Kinzer has said, “Coverage of the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press.” This past week’s coverage of the April 4 chemical-weapons incident in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun will only add to that dubious legacy.
Across the mainstream U.S. news media, there was almost no skepticism shown and virtually no differences of opinion allowed. Within hours, the rush to judgment that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was guilty had solidified into a full-scale groupthink.
Please do not rely on the MSM for your opinions….especially when it may involve the use of American troops…..read for yourselves….research for yourselves…..educate yourselves.
War is too important to allow others to form your opinions for you…..
