They’re Worried About The Spread Of Information, Not Disinformation

We are not being protected by a compassionate alliance of corporations and governments who only want us to know the truth, we are being manipulated and oppressed by an oligarchic empire that wants us to believe lies. That’s why they’re locking up Assange, that’s why they’re censoring the internet, that’s why they’re filling our minds with propaganda, and that’s why we can’t let them win.

Oh God It’s Going To Get SO Much Worse

Whoever controls the narrative controls the world. By taking our control of information out of our hands without asking our permission and determining for us that we are to be a propaganda-based civilization for the foreseeable future, they have stolen something sacred from us. Something they had no right to take.

Defending Freedom And Democracy Sure Requires An Awful Lot Of Censorship

You’d think a society devoted to truth and freedom, the kind of society western powers purport to be trying to defend in Ukraine, would not require a Ministry of Truth to protect us from “disinformation” about a government long targeted by the US-centralized empire, or from trying to seek out alternative perspectives beyond the homogeneous blanket of authorized mainstream narratives.

Uniting in Love and Rage against Corporate Power

One problem that arises from a corrupted and ubiquitous corporate media is that if we are not directly involved in a particular campaign on issues like climate change, press freedom, anti-racism, bodily sovereignty, or anti-surveillance, we are manipulated by the corporate media to see people on another issue as marginal, misinformed, illogical, hypocritical, or simply nasty.

Open Letter to Roger Hallam

Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, has been accused of “anti-semitism” by big media for words he spoke taken out of context, leading to a massive backlash against the activist. This points to a much broader problem within mainstream media that climate activists need to understand: Big media is intertwined with other power centers, and they will fight tooth and nail against anyone who seriously challenges the status quo.

The Mass Media Is Poisoning Us With Hate

Our opinions and prejudices are skillfully catered to and reinforced, with the aid of a detailed digital analysis of our proclivities and habits, and then sold back to us. The result, Taibbi writes, is “packaged anger just for you.” The public is unable to speak across the manufactured divide. It is mesmerized by the fake dissent of the culture wars and competing conspiracy theories.

Nicaragua: The War of 2018

Nearly all US regime-change wars (Venezuela, Syria, Honduras, Ukraine, Libya, Yugoslavia, etc.) are wars of deception, fabrication, propaganda, coups and false flags. Nicaraguans have waged an heroic struggle against the most powerful empire in history.

Distorting ‘Democracy’ in Venezuela Coverage

At every turn, Guaidó and his backers have taken steps that have nothing to do with democracy, and everything to do with what Oscar Guardiola-Rivera (Independent, 5/1/19), who teaches human rights and philosophy at the University of London, aptly labeled “a white supremacist foreign intervention.” That corporate media manage to portray this as a “pro-democracy movement” is both a tragedy and a farce.

Interviews with Chesa Boudin, Dan Beeton, Laura Carlsen, Mark Weisbrot, Miguel Tinker Salas and Alfredo Lopez.

The War on Venezuela Is Built on Lies

A war has been declared on Venezuela, of which the truth is “too difficult” to report. It is too difficult to report the blocking of Venezuela’s access to the US-dominated international financial system as sabotage. It is too difficult to report Washington’s “sanctions” against Venezuela, which have caused the loss of at least $6billion in Venezuela’s revenue since 2017, including $2billion worth of imported medicines, as illegal, or the Bank of England’s refusal to return Venezuela’s gold reserves as an act of piracy.
