Something has really changed in this war on Gaza: Social media has smashed the official version of events. From what I’ve read, Israel is at a loss about how to control their version of events. Intimidating the mainstream media and politicians used to work. It doesn’t work now. It’s quite astounding, what Twitter and Facebook […]
I don’t normally get into the Fox News insanity, because it’s so self-evidently insane, right? But every once in a while, I like to remind people of the kind of anti-human propaganda that’s getting spooned into the open yearning brains of their regular viewers: Fox News’ morning program questioned a Texas official about providing emergency […]
It’s sadly ironic that the Israelis have adopted so many Nazi-like tactics: Gunshots have been fired into Al Jazeera’s bureau in the Gaza Strip amid an intensified bombardment campaign on the Palestinian enclave. The shots caused panic among the civilians living in the same building but no casualties were reported in the incident on Tuesday […]
Robert Parry, who’s one of the better national security reporters out there, says there are reasons to take the media version of the Malaysia jet shootdown with a grain of salt: So why hasn’t this question of U.S. spy-in-the-sky photos – and what they reveal – been pressed by the major U.S. news media?

Just yesterday, I was reading and watching this guy’s heartbreaking coverage of the Israeli missile attack on a Gaza beach that killed four little kids playing soccer, and thought, “Now, there’s a real reporter.” Because I’ve had to cover tragedies, and let me tell you, it’s not easy.

These numbers have since increased significantly. In this […]
And Jeffrey Goldberg is one of them: ISIS seizes Saddam’s formerly nonexistent chemical weapons: http://t.co/3Fj29alvpF — Jeffrey Goldberg (@JeffreyGoldberg) July 8, 2014 Then the UN did this: Bunker #13 and # 41 were closed by sealing all entrances before the end of CDG [Chemical Destruction Group] mission. Each seal consisted of two brick walls with a 5cm layer […]
George Clooney is absolutely right. The British tabloids just make shit up, and they don’t care whether it’s dangerous or not. He’s also right that this story is intended to stir up religious factions, and for what? The fun of it? If it helps you understand, the Daily Mail is a right-wing publication.
We don’t normally see them contradict their Republican guests like this! ABC News host Martha Raddatz on Sunday cut off Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) after he spent four minutes defending a conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was plotting to fill up the United States with undocumented immigrants. Speaking to Fox News last week, […]
