Infomercials for Despots


Media scoundrels front for despots.

by Stephen Lendman

Sanitizing news and suppressing what's most important is bad enough. Imagine compounding it by producing infomercials for despots. CNN stands accused. More on that below.

It's well known that Western major media represent wealth and power interests. Fox New is a Republican party house organ. It also reflects Rupert Murdoch's worldview.

It features demagoguery, managed news, scandal, sleaze, and warmongering. It's prototypical presstitute media. Famed journalist George Seldes (1890 - 1995) denounced it in books like "Lords of the Press."

He called them "the most powerful force against the general welfare of the majority of the people." He exposed their tactics long before Project Censored and Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting.

(FAIR) once called Fox News "the most biased name in news....with its extraordinary right-wing tilt." Viewing it is like watching "a Harlem Globetrotters game (knowing) which side is supposed to win."
