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.
