UPDATE: According to the latest reports, the separatists in Donetsk have handed over to Malaysian authorities the black boxes from the downed Malaysian airliner, which indicates that those who have been blamed by Washington and the Western presstitute media have nothing to fear from the facts.

It makes one wonder if Washington planted a false story on the New Republic.

In the 1960s there was a prominent intellectual journal in London, Encounter. The journal had a distinguished editor and many distinguished people published important articles in the journal. None knew that they were publishing in a CIA cold-war operation.

In retrospect I think William F. Buckley's National Review might have been on the CIA's payroll. The magazine always seemed to take the CIA's position. The New Republic pretended to be a protest magazine, but it wasn't.

The New Republic article by Julia Ioffe is a collection of nonsense from obscure websites, some of which could be CIA operations, which Ioffe misrepresents as reports from the Russian state media. Ioffe paints a completely false picture of Russian reporting on the downed Malaysian airliner. No one could do this inadvertently.

As a person who pays attention to Russian media broadcasts and is routinely interviewed by the Russian media, I have never encountered any of the absurdities that Julia Ioffe misrepresents as Russian news.

What the Russian media reports is President Putin's calls for objective non-politicized investigation under the auspices of the International Civil Aviation Organization. What the Russia media reports are the satellite photos of the Ukrainian Buk missile launchers deployed in the area where the Malaysian airliner was downed.

The Russian media reports the Russian government's requests that Washington release its own satellite photos of the area covering the period of the airliner incident.The Russian media also provides the flight paths of the Ukrainian fighter jet that approached the airliner moments prior to its demise.

What the West reports are unsubstantiated accusations and insinuations and misrepresentations by the likes of Julia Ioffe.

Listen to this Ioffe statement. She thinks she is describing the Russian media, but she is describing the Western presstitute media of which she is a part:

"The Russian media space has become so uniform and independent voices so cowed and marginalized that there is no counterweight and, when there's no counterweight, if you repeat a thing often enough, it becomes the truth."

No truer words have ever been spoken about the Western presstitute media and the New Republic.
