His accusations turned out to be bald-faced lies. Imperial accusations have no basis in fact, whether about Iraq, Libya, or now Syria and Iran. Everything claimed is falsified for other reasons. Regime change and unchallenged dominance are key. That's the name of the game, nothing else.
Throughout the conflict, Al Jazeera and Western media falsified reports on Syria. CNN was caught red-handed interviewing someone named Danny. As he waited to comment live, footage showed him directing fake off-stage gunfire and explosions. Wherever he was far from violence, he pretended to be in the middle of a war zone.
Al Jazeera's Ahmad Ibrahim directed its Syria coverage. Viewers weren't told his brother Anas al-Abdeh is a leading Syrian National Council (SNC) member.
The Qatar-run channel also supplied opposition gangs with satellite communication phones and other equipment. In other words, it's part of the insurgency, not a legitimate news source.
It operated the same way in Libya, and downplays Bahraini violence. Like Annan and Ban, it's part of the problem, not the solution. So are CNN and other major media scoundrels.
At times, they pay sources to lie. They air footage unrelated to stories covered. They lie for power. Viewers are betrayed. Most don't know it. Wars result. Mass death and destruction follow. People are brutalized and exploited.
Media scoundrels bear major responsibility. They have blood on their hands. Instead of objectively reporting news, they distort or invent it. Propaganda substitutes for truth and full disclosure. Falsified US TV reports don't rise to the level of B film scripts, but viewers believe it. That's all that matters and what follows.
Body counts mount. Post-9/11, ones America's responsible for number millions. Media scoundrels don't explain. Instead they cheerlead what legitimate news sources denounce.
