An Empire of Lies: The CIA and the Western Media

“States selected for the “embrace” of empire are left with a stark choice: accept our terms of surrender and become an ally; or defy empire and face our wrath.

 

When the corporate elites trample on other peoples and states to advance their own selfish interests, such as in the invasion of Iraq to control its resources, our dominant media cannot allow its reporting to frame the events honestly. The continuing assumption in liberal commentary about the US attack on Iraq, for example, is that, once no WMD were found, the Bush administration remained to pursue a misguided effort to root out the terrorists, restore law and order, and spread democracy.

 

For the western media, our leaders make mistakes, they are naïve or even stupid, but they are never bad or evil. Our media do not call for Bush or Blair to be tried at the Hague as war criminals.”

Rampant, & inextricably interlinked, Low Educational Standards, Media Disinformation, Militarism, Corporatism, Authoritarianism, Zionism, & Kleptocracy have made the imminent collapse of the US economy inevitable – &, to much of the non-Western world, welcome!
