I have been criticized for not being more supportive of the efforts by the world to help Ukraine through this time of hardship.
For the media I have stated that most of the ‘reports’ have not been verified by the different outlets….but it is reported as fact….I have a problem with that……
But some of these reports are propaganda plain and simple…..and I am not alone in my skepticism….
NBC News has a new report out citing multiple anonymous US officials, humorously titled “In a break with the past, U.S. is using intel to fight an info war with Russia, even when the intel isn’t rock solid“.
The officials say the Biden administration has been rapidly pushing out “intelligence” about Russia’s plans in Ukraine that is “low-confidence” or “based more on analysis than hard evidence”, or even just plain false, in order to fight an information war against Putin.
The report says that toward this end the US government has deliberately circulated false or poorly evidenced claims about impending chemical weapons attacks, about Russian plans to orchestrate a false flag attack in the Donbass to justify an invasion, about Putin’s advisors misinforming him, and about Russia seeking arms supplies from China.
So they lied. They may hold that they lied for a noble reason, but they lied. They knowingly circulated information they had no reason to believe was true, and that lie was amplified by all the most influential media outlets in the western world.
Another example of the Biden administration releasing a false narrative as part of its “information war”:
The media uses pundits that are working for the arms industry….just how impartial will those slugs be?
U.S. corporate media outlets are saturated with pundits – many of them ex-military or national security officials – who take to the airwaves to promote hawkish policies and actions in Ukraine and elsewhere without disclosing their own ties to the arms industry, according to a report published Tuesday.
Analyzing punditry across a range of outlets including CNN, MSNBC, and NBC News, Aditi Ramaswami and Andrew Perez at The Lever found that the networks failed to inform viewers that many of their expert guests who called for supplying Ukraine with more weapons to defend against Russia’s invasion were currently employed by the weapons industry or its advocates.
“I think it’s awesome you can be a consultant for a company that manufactures certain missiles and go on NBC or CNN and say how important it is that we get more of those missiles shipped out, with no one saying [by the way], this guy works for the missile company,” Perez sardonically quipped in a tweet promoting the report.
You are being fed propaganda that will insure that the arms industry gets its way in this world…..public opinion echoes the propaganda.
Look at the nuke thing….then the chem thing and now back to the nuke thing……all there is is words nothing to point to the actual use.
“War is good business” and the media helps it be uber profitable.
The MSM is creating the stories…..watch whatever network you like and the news stories are all the same….very little variation
Please look behind the BS and get to the real story….not the fake crap being passed off as expert impartial analysis.
