Russophobic Western Media
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
US-led Western media reporting on Russia is consistently hostile, a disturbing near-daily tirade of disinformation, Big Lies and fake news.
The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post is one of the Kremlin’s lead antagonists – in one-sided articles, editorials and commentaries.
Neocon columnist Anne Applebaum is notoriously Russophobic, a serial liar, a propagandist masquerading as a journalist – deceiving her readers, not informing them.
Paid to lie, not report accurately, she’s shamefully pro-war, pro-imperial lawlessness, pro-wealth and power, pro-corporate predation, anti-progressive, anti-government serving everyone equitably.
She’s especially Russophobic, her latest commentary falsely accusing Moscow of “unleash(ing) a nerve agent (and) unleashing its lie machine” about it – a disgraceful perversion of truth she knows, but won’t admit.
Truth-telling about Russia would expose her longstanding disinformation about the country.
Like other Western media commentators and government officials, she wrongfully blamed the Kremlin for what it had nothing to do with – no evidence proving otherwise. None exists incriminating Russia for the Skripal incident.
Yet the Big Lie persists, Applebaum contributing her share, piling on more Big Lies, claiming “Russian-backed troops in eastern Ukraine shot down a Malaysian passenger plane (MH 17) in 2014” – FALSE!
“(W)e’ve become fixated on the idea that Russian disinformation is something that happens during election campaigns. But it goes on all the time…” – FALSE!
“Social media…anonymous (Russian) trolls (make) it easy to invent disinformation” – a Western-sponsored Russophobic blitzkrieg, piling on false accusations against Moscow.
Applebaum urged expanding Britain’s anti-Russia disinformation campaign, saying without it “we’re doomed to live in a world where truth is defined by those who have the least respect for it.”
She, likeminded Western media and government liars bear full responsibility for waging war on truth-telling – notably on anything about US-led imperial aggression and Russia.
