Good Guys We're Not


Media Lens is an antidote to scoundrel media propaganda.

by Stephen Lendman

David Cromwell is a Scottish writer, activist and oceanographer at the National Oceanography Centre in Britain. He and David Edwards are Media Lens.org co-editors.

It's an antidote to misinformation. It critiques mainstream media propaganda, bias and censorship. It provides credible facts, opinion, and in-depth analysis on issues mattering most.

It's what journalism should be but isn't in an age of mass deception. People are on their own to separate truth from fiction. Media Lens provides help.

Both writers co-authored "Newspeak in the 21st Century" and "Guardians of Power." They explain what everyone needs to know. Media reliability along with free and open societies are at risk.

Dissent is marginalized and targeted. Democratic values are fast eroding en route to disappearing altogether in Western societies and Israel.

Raising public awareness more than ever is vital. Independent voices are essential. So is speaking truth to power and spreading it to mass audiences. 

Doing it isn't easy. Dark forces are menacing. They don't take kindly to airing ugly facts they want suppressed. Doing so gets people targeted.

Journalist/author AJ Liebling once said "The press is free only to those who own one." He also warned that "People everywhere confuse what they read in newspapers with news."

Even before mind manipulating television, print media proliferated propaganda. TV makes it much easier. Combined they represent weapons of mass misinformation.

Practitioners support wealth and power interests. They spurn popular ones. They want them gutted to make corporate favorites and super-rich elites richer.

Cromwell's new book is called "Why Are We the Good Guys?" The prevailing notion is that saying it makes it so.

"One of the unspoken assumptions of the Western world," says Cromwell, "is that 'we' are great defenders of human rights, a free press and the benefits of market economics."
