Media Scoundrels Promote Permanent Wars


Lying for a living.

by Stephen Lendman

Real journalists report issues responsibly. Scoundrels operate by different rules. They play lead US imperial roles. Without them, pretexts for war wouldn't matter. Selling them depends on widespread dissemination. Messages not heard don't exist. 

Regurgitating official lies legitimizes attacking one nonbelligerent nation after another. Responsible parties share guilt with war planners. 

Blood drenches their hands. Peace and stability are rejected. So are rule of law principles and democratic values. Global barbarism defines their thinking. It shows in what they endorse. 

Perhaps mass slaughter and destruction energize them. They're paid to lie. They support imperial war lords. Truth and full disclosure are verboten. They willingly promote the unconscionable.

They endorse different moral standards than most people. Their world isn't fit to live in. Perhaps they'll go too far and help destroy it. Imagine it because it's possible.

Real news and information are suppressed. Iran's Press TV, Russia Today, Voice of Russia, and the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) provide them. They promote truth, stability, democratic values,  sovereign independence, cooperative international relations, and peace.

They reject war, interfering in other nations' internal affairs, and bullying them to support policies against their own interests. 

Press TV quoted Iranian President on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement's (NAM) summit, saying:

"Today, the global conditions are changing drastically and independent nations should stand by each other to achieve justice and humanity."

He added than Iran won't cave under Western pressure. "(H)egemons never seek benevolence and justice. (Their) policies have always brought war, oppression and discrimination."

Media scoundrels point fingers the wrong way. Victims are blamed for Western crimes. On August 29, SANA headlined "Mercenary Terrorists Continue Killing and Terrorist Acts against Syrians," saying:
