Instead of journalism as it should be, MSM feature managed news misinformation and disinformation based on state-approved talking points on virtually all major issues.
In his book, titled “The Myth of the Liberal Media,” Edward Herman (1925 – 2017) explained that the US/Western “propaganda model (is used to) filter out news to print, marginalize dissent (and assure) government and dominant private interests” control the message.
What conflicts with the fabricated official narrative is suppressed by MSM.
The record of the self-styled newspaper of record NYT reflects the above reality.
Its latest fake news report on Russia once again regurgitated Biden regime Big Lies, saying:
“Russia could invade Ukraine at any moment (sic).”
The so-called “Ukraine crisis” was made-in-the-USA, not Moscow.
Instead of debunking the Biden regime’s fake news about Russia, the Times repeats it daily.
Actions by dominant US hardliners are polar opposite what the Times called “pushing for a diplomatic solution (sic).”
A daily Russophobic war of words rages with hostile intentions in mind.
No US intelligence exists to suggest imminent Russian military action against Ukraine.
No menacing Russian troop movements.
No hostile intentions by Moscow against any nations.
According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova:
Biden regime “hysteria is as revealing as ever.”
“The Anglo-Saxons need war. At any price.”
Separately, Russia’s Foreign Ministry slammed US-dominated NATO’s “coordinated information attack” based on fake news over reality.
On Friday, Donetsk People’s Republic on Donbass leader Denis Pushilin warned that Kiev has “a plan (to) seiz(e)” the DPR and Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) “by force” — as directed by US-led NATO regimes, adding:
“If we look at the latest events and the forces and hardware on the contact line, everything becomes clear.”
“Ukraine is preparing for (escalated) war.”
Separately, the Donetsk News Agency reported that “Kiev and the West have been making statements alleging the threat of Russian invasion.”
“This pretext was used to mass considerable forces next to the contact line in Donbass.”
“Earlier, the DPR reported the massing of some 120,000 Ukrainian servicemen in the region.”
“The enemy group had been reinforced with radicals, multiple launch rocket systems and NATO weapons.”
Instead of explaining the above, the Times reported the following fake news:
“Ukraine’s military warned on Friday that (Donbass is) conducting military exercises, completing a near encirclement of Ukraine by hostile forces (sic).”
No external threat to Ukraine by Russian or Donbass forces exists.
Biden regime, subservient NATO partners, Kiev, the Times and other MSM fake news pretend otherwise.
According to WaPo fake news, “the (made-in-the-USA) Ukraine crisis will test America like no time since the Cold War (sic),” adding:
“The expectation that Russia will mount a major aggressive war against Ukraine has heightened dramatically over the past few days (sic).”
“We can see it everywhere (sic).”
What WaPo and other Biden regime press agents falsely called a “Ukraine crisis…manufactured” by Vladimir Putin was made by White House Russophobes, the Pentagon and CIA.
On all things Russia and other invented US enemies, fake news is an everyday thing.
“Russia may be on the brink of war,” CNN hyperventilated.
According to National Pentagon Radio (NPR), “Russia could begin an invasion of Ukraine before the Olympics end” on February 20.
The WSJ called nonthreatening Russian/Belarusian military exercises “a possible precursor to a Russian invasion of” Ukraine (sic).
In stark contrast to fake news US/Western hyperventilating about imminent Russian war on Ukraine — not planned or forthcoming — Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said the following:
“Everyone is talking about it.”
“The military, the military, the military.”
“I am absolutely convinced that there will be no shooting war.”
“We won’t fight unless some crazy Nazis in Ukraine stage a provocation.”
“For now, this war is nowhere near.”
At the same time, full-blown US/Western “information war” is ongoing daily with no end of it in prospect.
