The Breaking Of The Corporate Media Monopoly

The Breaking Of The Corporate Media Monopoly

Last week, Jeremy Corbyn humbled the entire political and corporate media commentariat. With a little help from Britain’s student population. And with a little help from thousands of media activists. Without doubt this was one of the most astonishing results in UK political history. Dismissed by all corporate political pundits, including the clutch of withered fig leaves at the Guardian, […]

WHITE HELMETS: Are Dead Children Being Used as Props for Propaganda Videos?

WHITE HELMETS: Are Dead Children Being Used as Props for Propaganda Videos?

This article reports updated findings I obtained in a further examination of videos published by the White Helmets, which aimed to represent consequences of an alleged gas attack in Sarmine in March 2015 [See my first report of March 6, 2017]. [1] The videos depict a medical rescuing scenario focused on ‘lifesaving’ procedures on children. The new findings, which have […]

Rehabilitating Bush – The Deadly Illusion Of Corporate Dissent

Rehabilitating Bush – The Deadly Illusion Of Corporate Dissent

The title of the editorial said it all: ‘The Guardian view on George W Bush: a welcome return’ In a tongue-in-cheek, almost jovial, piece the Guardian unsubtly rehabilitated a man responsible for crimes that are among the most egregious in all history. Bush was responsible for the destruction of an entire country, the killing of one million Iraqis, the wounding […]

Trump protests must see and oppose US crimes in their totality

Trump protests must see and oppose US crimes in their totality

As global protests continue against Donald Trump, what could be the nucleus of a promising new progressive movement, akin to Occupy, is being compromised by a faux liberal ‘resistance’. It’s been encouraging to see people act in a spirit of intuitive solidarity with Muslims in rejection of Trump’s discriminatory edicts. But, thanks to the liberal media’s veneration of Obama and […]

Voices from Syria

Voices from Syria

Global Research Publishers brings you “Voices from Syria”, a new e-book by author Mark Taliano.  Excerpt from Preface: Between 15 and 23 September 2016, I travelled to war-torn Syria because I sensed years ago that the official narratives being fed to North Americans across TV screens, in newsprint and on the internet were false. The invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, and […]

‘Guardian’ newspaper fails to support colleague facing deportation threat from Israeli government

‘Guardian’ newspaper fails to support colleague facing deportation threat from Israeli government

Israel is reported to be ready to expel an award-winning Australian journalist and writer, Antony Loewenstein, after he asked a too-probing question of an Israeli politician at a media event last week. Government officials have said they are investigating how they can deny him his work visa when it comes up for renewal in March. It is unsurprising to learn […]

The Second Phase of the propaganda Fake News War: Economic Strangulation. What Comes Next?

The Second Phase of the propaganda Fake News War: Economic Strangulation. What Comes Next?

Frustrated and outraged at how reality has turned out, the ruling class denizens of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential tent are lashing out at truth-tellers. “Fake news” is whatever contradicts their lies, and Russia is their all-purpose boogeyman. “Google and Facebook have joined theri corporate media compatriots in an attempt to limit the public’s access to alternative news analysis and independent […]

Fake News About ‘Fake News’ – The Media Performance Pyramid

Fake News About ‘Fake News’ – The Media Performance Pyramid

In the wake of Brexit and Trump, ‘mainstream’ media have done the formerly unthinkable by focusing on media bias. The intensity of focus has been such that the Oxford Dictionaries have announced that ‘post-truth’ is their ‘Word of the Year 2016’. ‘Post-truth’ refers to ‘circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion […]

The Ongoing Media Propaganda War Against Syria

The Ongoing Media Propaganda War Against Syria

Thirteen months ago, I highlighted how, after the chaos of Iraq and Libya, the mass media began softening the public up for another illegal military intervention in another sovereign state – this time in Syria. Rupert Murdoch, who has a direct financial interest in regime change in Syria (see Israel & energy independence below) oversaw some of the more overt forms of anti-Syrian […]

The Great Libya War Fraud

The Great Libya War Fraud

National newspapers were ‘unimpressed by Jeremy Corbyn’s victory’ in the Labour leadership election, Roy Greenslade noted in the Guardian, surprising no-one. Corbyn secured almost 62% of the 506,000 votes cast, up from the 59% share he won in 2015, ‘with virtually no press backing whatsoever’. In reality, of course, Corbyn did not just lack press backing. He won in the […]

Syria Propaganda – The Death Rattle of the Corporate Media

Syria Propaganda – The Death Rattle of the Corporate Media

“The role of the corporate media is to protect, promote and legitimize the destructive and amoral aims of profit-seeking private power. Any journalist or columnist working within that system is actively aiding the corporate media achieve this goal. These gatekeepers, especially those regarded as liberal, are therefore culpable in the illegal wars and rapacious, planet-destroying actions of the worst corporations.” […]
