“Left” Media for NATO Wars? Deceit & Disinformation for “Thought Control” - nsnbc international

“Left” Media for NATO Wars? Deceit & Disinformation for “Thought Control” - nsnbc international | Global politics | Scoop.it
“Left” Media for NATO Wars? Deceit & Disinformation for “Thought Control” Progressive-left media persist in acting as propaganda outlets for the US-NATO destabilization of Syria, thus placating a politically conscious audience that might otherwise...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now is a case in point. Since the beginning of the “Arab Spring” color revolutions the foremost broadcast venue of “independent” progressive-Left journalism in the United States has used its reportage to obfuscate and thereby advance the campaign for regime change in Egypt, Libya, and now Syria.

Owen Jones & Mother Agnes. A lesson on conciliatory "leftists".

Owen Jones & Mother Agnes. A lesson on conciliatory "leftists". | Global politics | Scoop.it
Following the news that Mother Agnes Miriam, a nun who heads the Musalaha (reconciliation) initiative in Syria, was due to speak at the Stop The War conference in London, two journalists also due t...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Evidently, Jones’ moral outrage is selective at best, one could convincingly argue its nothing more than careerist popularism – with a dash of orientalist superiority for good measure. Sure, sit next to war-criminals of “our” variety, you wont get smeared with the dreaded “apologist” brush in the elitist media you participate and benefit from – hell, most of their “barbarous” crimes are long forgotten, so not much to worry about. But sit next to a nun that supports a current enemy of the west? Forget it.
