If you rely on mainstream media and the cable outlets as your primary source of information on Syria, Aleppo, and Russia, you are subjected to a great deal of propaganda.

"Fake News" is a smokescreen for future censorship and control of alternative media. Because corporate media has no credibility and has lost control of the public, they are attempting to eliminate alternative media under the guise of it being "fake news".

The questionable attack on a US Navy ship in the Gulf of Tonkin precipitated escalation of the useless Vietnam War. Now, years later we have almost an identical questionable attack on a US Navy ship off the coast of Yemen. It may have never occurred, but mainstream media has chose to ignore the non existent attack on the US.

The longest war in our history continues without end and has cost over one trillion dollars and is is not even a presidential campaign issue. The Empire just continues endless war all around the world and it is not even an issue. A sad commentary on the state of the US.

Senator Jack Reed's support of cluster bombs illustrates the threat to democracy; the influence of money in politics. Reed does what almost the entire Congress does. It is a corrupt system that can only be ended by taking all money out of campaigns.

We are getting round the clock coverage of the tragic Paris attacks, and our hearts go out to the families of victims, but there was very little media coverage of the US bombing of a hospital killing doctors, patients,and staff. Why not?
