Neocon Washington Post Warns of Nonexistent Putin October Surprise
by Stephen Lendman
US media scoundrels are irresponsibly anti-Russia, anti-Putin – the Washington Post among them, CIA-connected through its billionaire owner Jeff Bezos.
WaPo suggests Putin plans an October surprise despite no evidence linking Russia to numerous early accusations against it – fabricated stuff entirely for geopolitical reasons.
WaPo columnist Dana Milbank is more propagandist than journalist, without justification, saying “(t)he Russians have just given us an August glimpse of a potential October surprise.”
Like many others, he falsely blamed Moscow for hacking DNC emails and “targeting state voter-registration systems,” claiming it’s part of an “effort to boost Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy…leaking what they believe to be the most damaging documents at strategic points in the campaign.”
Fact: No evidence supports these spurious accusations.
Fact: Media scoundrels like Milbank one-sidedly support Hillary, serving as press agents, not legitimate journalists.
He went further, falsely claiming Russia is “doctoring (hacked) documents…add(ing) false information and then passing (them) off as the originals.”
Perhaps preempting Julian Assange’s announced plan to release damning information on Hillary before November’s presidential election, he asked “(a)re Vladimir Putin’s operatives planning to dump edited DNC documents on the eve of the presidential election?”
“(I)t’s clear that Russian disinformation wars are as active as ever…So does this point to a Putin-sponsored October surprise,” he asked?
Milbank like other media scoundrels wants Hillary, not Trump, succeeding Obama. They support war over peace and privilege over populism.
They’re support US imperial plans for replacing all independent governments with pro-Western puppet regimes – especially in Moscow, Beijing and Tehran.
They’re manipulating public sentiment irresponsibly ahead of perhaps planned war on these sovereign states under a Hillary administration, instead of doing what journalists are supposed to do – their jobs.
I call Western writers like Milbank and countless likeminded others scoundrels for good reason – paid to proliferate managed news misinformation and Big Lies, truth-telling strictly verboten.
