US/Western MSM long ago abandoned journalism as it should be.
Providing press agent services for wealth, power, privilege and hegemon USA-dominated NATO’s imperial wars long ago replaced it.
Virtually nothing MSM report on major domestic and geopolitical issues can be taken at face value.
On all things Russia and other invented US/Western enemies, fake news is featured exclusively over the real thing.
On Wednesday, MSM headlines screamed in unison about “Russia attack(ing) Ukraine.”
A customary litany of bald-faced Big Lies followed.
No “explosions were heard across” Ukraine nationwide, as NYT fake news reported.
No “invasion” of Ukrainian territory.
No “full-scale war” on Ukraine.
No Russian “aggression.”
A pre-dawn Feb. 24 NYT screaming headline defied reality as follows claiming:
“Ukraine Live Updates: Russia Begins Invasion From Land and Sea (sic).”
Nothing of the sort is happening.
No evidence suggests it’s forthcoming.
Russian forces struck Ukraine’s military infrastructure to halt its years of aggression on Donbass — a defensive action in response to a request for help by DPR and LPR leaders, as permitted by the UN Charter.
A separate Times report headlined “What to Know About Why Russia Attacked” turned truth on its head as follows, saying:
“Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine on Thursday (sic)” — a bald-faced Big Lie with malice aforethought, adding:
The nonexistent “Russian invasion will upend the lives of 44 million Ukrainians (sic).”
They’ll be “upend(ed)” only by hardened tyrannical rule following Kiev’s imposition of martial law — abolishing what little remained of greatly eroded freedoms in the country under Nazi-infested fascist rule.
Russia’s overnight action enhances central and Eastern European security — not the other way around as Times fake news falsely claimed.
No Russian forces “invaded Ukraine” earlier.
Nor is an invasion underway now.
No Russian “threat” exists to Ukraine or any other countries.
Overnight strikes by Russian forces on Ukraine’s military infrastructure were defensive, not aggressive.
If Kiev’s aggression against and threats to Donbass sovereignty and security cease, so will defensive military action by Russian forces, as permitted by the rule of law.
The Times gave former Clinton crime family UN envoy and secretary of state Madeleine Albright a platform to hyperventilate Big Lies about Russia.
Ignored was how, during the 1990s, she prioritized smashing nations for not bending to hegemon USA’s will — supporting use of NATO to illegally intervene against them militarily.
Criminally backing US Balkan wars, its rape and destruction of the former Yugoslavia and genocide against Iraqi civilians, she’s unapologetic to this day.
On June 12, 1996, CBS 60 Minutes host Leslie Stahl asked her the following about genocidal US sanctions on Iraq:
“We have heard that a half million children have died.”
“I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima.” “And, you know, is the price worth it?
Albright infamously responded:
“(W)e think the price is worth it (sic).”
According to a 1995 UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimate, illegal US sanctions on Iraq were responsible for the deaths of 567,000 Iraqi children under age-5.
Not a problem for Albright and likeminded members of the US criminal class.
Her NYT op-ed hyperventilated rubbish about Russia, saying:
“Putin…ditch(ed) democratic development” in Russia (sic).
“He collected political and economic power for himself (sic).”
He “co-opt(ed) or crush(ed) potential competition (sic).”
He aims “to re-establish a sphere of Russian dominance through parts of the former Soviet Union (sic).”
All of the above and what followed were bald-faced Big Lies.
No responsible editors would touch them.
Times editors featured them prominently.
Falsely calling Putin “authoritarian” by Albright ignored his preeminence as a democratic leader on the world stage.
Russian democracy under his leadership is the real thing — in stark contrast to fantasy versions in the US, throughout the West, in apartheid Israel, fascist Ukraine and elsewhere.
Albright’s reinvention of democratic Russia under Putin’s leadership included beginning-to-end bald-faced Big Lies.
In office and after leaving government, her worldview supports tyranny over governance of, by and for everyone equitably.
It showed in her anti-Putin/anti-Russia hit piece by turning reality on its head.
Times editors never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity to set the record straight about Russia and other nations free from hegemon USA’s control.
Responding to overnight events, they turned truth on its head by falsely calling Russia’s defensive strikes on Ukraine’s military infrastructure “a brazen invasion (sic).”
Its perversion of reality is a “brazen” reinvention of what happened pre-dawn Thursday and virtually all else relating to Russia.
A further litany of bald-faced Big Lies followed, saying:
Overnight events “snuffed out…any hope for a peaceful resolution to the crisis (sic).”
Russia’s defensive action greatly increases the prospect of ending eight years of US-orchestrated and directed aggression by Kiev on Donbass.
If the Zelensky regime fails to heed Russia’s warning, its military may be smashed altogether.
Its conscripts may desert en masse, the vast majority forced to serve against their wishes and rights.
Conflict resolution may replace a permanent state of war on Donbass as a result of Russia’s resolve to no longer tolerate Kiev’s aggression.
The Times turned truth on its head claiming otherwise.
It “brazenly” lied by accusing Putin (of engaging) in dangerous and destructive leadership (sic).”
It lied saying that overnight Russian airstrikes aren’t about security (sic).
It lied claiming that Russia’s military action reflects Putin’s “xenophobic, imperial and misguided notion(s) (sic).”
Defying the reality of overnight events, the Times reinvented them further, saying:
They represent “an unprovoked invasion of a sovereign European state (sic)…an unprovoked declaration of war (sic).”
Facts on the ground are worlds apart from typical Times rubbish featured daily on virtually all major domestic and geopolitical issues.
It reinvented dementia Joe’s double, a know-nothing figure, a caricature of a leader kept largely behind the scenes, a nobody sent out occasionally to recite pre-scripted lines prepared by his handlers.
The Times fell flat in trying to reinvent him as a figure displaying “toughness, patience, resolve and dignity (sic).”
The fake Biden doesn’t rise to the level of a partial cardboard cutout of the above credentials.
He’s more robot-like in following instructions of his handlers.
The Times attempt to reinvent him into what he’s not sounded buffoon-like.
The same goes for its historical revisionism across the board — especially what relates to US wars of choice, its aggression against invented enemies, its abhorrence of peace, stability and the rule of law.
