WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

Western MSM is killing itself silently...

By western MSM considering itself to be a front line army against Russia & China it completely loses its function as a critic of western powers.

It became a media eunuch.

Neutered, mute & impotent.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

Western MSM once was fearless in criticizing all-comers whether West, East, North or South.

Newspapers like The @Guardian in the UK kept western states observed & made them accountable to a degree.

But it gave up the ghost on that function.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

The @Guardian was made an offer it couldn’t refuse after the Snowdon revelations it published.

Britain’s security state expressed displeasure at it publishing evidence of snooping by western states.

Then with a new editor it was game over.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

This story has been repeated over & over in those few media outlets that had previously held western states to account.

Before The @Guardian was neutered it was the @BBC.

The then Labour government made sure it paid for being too free...
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

The UK security state considered the @BBC too interested in the ploys of the government to have the war against Iraq they wanted.

So a certain Alastair Campbell began a vendetta to crush it.

Then, w/ a new chief exec it was again game over.

The situation in the USA differed.

One by one media companies were swallowed by conglomerates very cozily in bed w/ the Military Industrial Complex & other elites who found war profitable.

With changes on the board it was again, game over.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

One by one the lights went out across western journalism. The searchlights which had once played over the devious machinations of western states died out or were turned to face "danger" from the East.

Fearless tongues began to fall silent.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

This is when western MSM began to be known for its fake news broadcasting.

It was now bought, compromised or inveigled into being a purring pussycat for the states it had once watched as vigilant eagles.

True journalism within MSM was dead.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

With the death of journalism in western MSM independent journalists rose truly deserving the name, as others still calling themselves such did not.

They were not bought & were free of company ties.

They spoke freely & held the light aloft.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

Among the journalists who rekindled the fearless spirit of true investigative journalism were an old guard who had never lost their integrity.

Those such as @JohnPilger in the UK & the late Robert Parry of @ConsortiumNews in the USA.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

Those who followed in the footsteps of Pilger, Parry & their inspiring colleagues like Seymour Hersh, Woodward & Bernstein are made of the right stuff also.

For example @GGreenwald @MaxBlumenthal @AaronJMate @BenjaminNorton & @JeremyScahill.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

Imagine there was no Greenwald, Scahill, Blumenthal, Mate & Norton... plus the indefatigable & essential @JimmyDore. No one around to critique western state elites.

Imagine there was only western mainstream news.

Imagine endless propaganda.
WESTERN MSM: KILLING ITSELF SILENTLY

Imagine the extent to which western states could continue their legalized terrorism safe in the knowledge that only warmongering western MSM reported their saintly humanitarian activities.

Just imagine... western MSM killing itself silently.
