Dominant 4th estate propaganda on Russia’s liberating SMO in Ukraine and Donbass reached unparalleled lows of fake news and mass deception.
Collectively they exceeded Star Trek — going beyond the worst of where they went before.
Daily reports on all things Russia and Ukraine feature fabricated state-approved talking point to the exclusion of truth and full disclosure.
Whenever hegemon USA goes to war or plans one against invented enemies — directly or by use of proxy foot soldiers — truth is the first casualty.
Yet never in modern memory was MSM fake news as over-the-top extreme as in support of Nazified Ukraine and against Russia’s liberating SMO.
Pathological lying infests NYT reports.
Its fake news with mass deception in mind ranks with the worst around, including rubbish like the following, saying:
Russian “devastated several Ukrainian cities (sic), caused a humanitarian crisis (sic) and fueled insecurity around the world (sic).”
All of the above and more of the same apply to US-dominated NATO’s longstanding war on humanity domestically and abroad, clearly not Russia.
On all Times reports about the Russian Federation, the Big Lie is featured exclusively over news fit to print.
In its latest fake news edition, the self-styled newspaper of record falsely accused Russia of striking “an office building in central Ukraine on Thursday morning, killing at least 12 people and wounding 25 (sic), adding:
Russia struck “a civilian target in Ukraine that did not appear to have a direct military objective (sic).”
One again, the Times ignored that Russian forces exclusively attack Ukraine’s Nazi-infested military, its weapons, munitions, equipment and related infrastructure.
And this from puppet Zelensky from his Polish hideout, quoted by the Times:
“Every day, Russia destroys the civilian population (sic), kills Ukrainian children (sic), directs rockets at civilian objects (sic).”
“What is this, if not an open act of terrorism (sic)?”
Scripted Big Lies for him to recite wore thin long ago.
Virtually everything he says lacks credibility.
The same goes for Times fake news.
Ignoring Russian and other US political prisoners, ones denied due process and judicial fairness, declared guilty by accusation instead, then mistreated behind bars, the Times reinvented reality about Brittney Griner’s arrest after arriving at Russia’s Sheremetyevo Airport in possession of cannabis oil, an illegal narcotic.
According to Russia’s criminal code, possession of illegal substances is punishable by imprisonment of up to 10 years.
Yet according to reinvention of reality by the Times, Griner is “ensnared in what some (unnamed) US officials call a sham trial (sic) influenced by the geopolitics of a war (sic).”
Pleading guilty to possession of an illegal drug, she dubiously claimed that it was packed in error.
Suggesting a possible prisoner swap ahead — what Russia should only agree to if all its illegally held nationals in the US are unconditionally released and allowed to return home — the Times mentioned swapping her for Viktor Bout alone, falsely saying:
He’s “a Russian arms dealer (sic) known as the “Merchant of Death (sic),” serving a 25-year federal sentence in Illinois for conspiring to sell weapons to people who said they planned to kill Americans (sic).”
The above rubbish is a bald-faced Big Lie.
Bout faced multiple false charges, ones no credible evidence supported, including weapons sales to narco-terrorists, the Taliban and al-Qaeda, money laundering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, and six separate counts of wire fraud (sic).
All of the above charges were invented for political reasons.
Calling him a “merchant of death” and “lord of war” was fabricated rubbish.
His “crime” was being a Russian national, nothing else.
When the empire of lies and forever wars goes after a targeted individual like Bout and other Russian nationals, innocence is no defense, guilt automatic by accusation.
Operating legally, Bout ran a legitimate air cargo business.
A DEA sting operation illegally entrapped him.
He’s been imprisoned in the US for over a decade doing hard time made harder by mistreating him — along with other Russian political prisoners.
The Times declared him guilty by accusation, suppressing indisputable evidence of his framing.
And this Times trash:
Russian authorities “interrogated, detained, and forcibly deported between 900,000 and 1.6 million Ukrainian citizens, including 260,000 children, from their homes into Russian territory (sic).”
Interventionist Blinken’s Big Lie was quoted, falsely saying the following:
“The (nonexistent) unlawful transfer and deportation of protected persons (by Russia) is a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention on the protection of civilians and is a war crime.”
Nothing of the sort occurred.
Notorious serial liar Blinken, the Times and other MSM falsely claimed otherwise.
And this Times fake news:
So-called “testimonies…by (nonexistent) deportees who escaped Russia (sic) included descriptions of filtration sites (sic) accounts of interrogations (sic), beatings and torture (sic) of those deemed to have ties to Ukraine’s armed forces, and of disappearances (sic).”
All of the above and more of the same is some of the worst Times trash on all things Russia and Ukraine.
At the same time, the broadsheet consistently suppresses indisputable evidence of Ukrainian war crimes — including torture and bodily dismemberment of Russian POWs held by regime Nazis.
On virtually all major domestic and geopolitical issues, the Times and other MSM operate as virtual ministries of state propaganda.
Featuring fake news exclusively, truth and full disclosure is suppressed.
The above applies in the extreme about all things Russia and Ukraine throughout the run-up to and after Moscow’s liberating SMO began.
Lost Times credibility has been far too discredited for too long to ever be restored again.
It’s more propaganda rag than newspaper, state-approved fake news its specialty.
With attribution to the late Chicago Sun Times reporter, Mike Royko:
“No self-respecting fish would (permit itself to) be wrapped in” Times newsprint.
He said it about Rupert Murdoch papers.
Times rubbish on major issues exceeds the worst of what he published.
A Final Comment
The Times assaults all US invented enemies by fake news, including Iran since its liberating 1979 revolution, ending a generation of US control and exploitation.
On Wednesday, it defied reality by falsely claiming that “Russia reach(ed) out to (the Islamic Republic for help in countering the (US-dominated) West (sic).”
Both countries have had longstanding mutually beneficial political, economic and trade relations.
On July 19, Vladimir Putin will visit Tehran for talks with his Iranian and Turkish counterparts.
His trip has nothing to do with countering the West.
When meet bilaterally, Putin and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi will discuss longstanding economic cooperation between both countries.
Instead of setting the record straight, the Times made up a fake news report to bash both nations in service to hegemon USA’s interests.
