    Lee Camp: We Are Being Lied Into War Again

    How Donald Trump Finally Won Over “Liberal” Media

Maybe Donald Trump isn’t as stupid as I thought. I’d hate to have to admit that publicly, but it does kind of seem like he has put one over on the liberal corporate media this time. Scanning the recent Trump-related news, I couldn’t help but notice a significant decline in the number of references to…

  How the Media Manufactures Consent for Regime Change in Venezuela

The latest extraordinary chapter in the bizarre world of Venezuelan politics is playing out before our eyes. After winning the 2018 presidential elections, Nicolás Maduro was inaugurated in January, only for the head of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó — a man whom, at the time, less than 20 percent of the country had even heard of…

  The Future is Female (Death Merchants): MSM Celebrates Women in the War Machine

WASHINGTON — The mainstream media has made a noisy effort over the years to humanize America’s war machine. But now, outlets like MSNBC are doubling down on efforts in 2019, celebrating the feminization of America’s institutions of destruction and foreign sabotage.

  UN Panel Details Organ Theft, Staged Attacks by the White Helmets

Utter silence. That is the sound of Western corporate media days after a more than one-hour-long panel on the White Helmets at the United Nations on December 20. Journalists were present, so the silence isn’t due to lack of access. And in any case, it was live streamed on the UNTV channel and remains available…
