Good morning. I'd like to make 3 points:

1) The vast majority of disinformation, propaganda and lies that flooded the country over the last 5 years did not come from MAGA boomers on Facebook or 4Chan teenagers but the largest and most influential liberal corporate media outlets.
2) These are not cases where media outlets erred. They deliberately lied. The way to know that is they refuse to acknowledge evidence proving they lied.

Remember they just *ignored* @SchreckReports' book proving the Biden emails were real. Now this:

3) By far the best and most accurate reporting on all matters relating to Russiagate came not from the liberal corporate outlets that want to censor the internet in the name of disinformation or which shower themselves with Pulitzers for lies, but from the right-wing press.
The reporters who know most about Russiagate and did distinguished facts from lies -- @ChuckRossDC, @MZHemingway, @JerryDunleavy, along with a few young journalists who risked their careers in left-wing media: @aaronjmate & @mtracey -- are the ones you've been told to ignore.
A few people objected to my statement yesterday that hatred of them is just.

Think about this: they spent weeks before the 2020 election spreading the CIA lie that the Biden emails were "Russian disinformation," but when a POLITICO reporter disproved that, they ignored his book.
These are the world's most pompous, smug, self-righteous people. They never stop telling they're the guardians of democracy and truth.

But then when they get *caught lying* -- when irrefutable evidence emerges debunking their lies -- they ignore it. How is that not contemptible?
I've been a vocal critic of liberal corporate media since I began writing 15 years ago - it's why I started - and especially so the last 5 years.

But that escalated when they just *ignored* @SchreckReports' book proving they lied about the Biden emails.…
We all know exactly which outlets and media personalities spent the weeks before the 2020 election spreading the CIA's lie: the Biden emails were "Russian disinformation." They know who they are. How do they sleep knowing they lied about this, then ignoring this book proving it??
And now that the real facts about the bullshit Russiagate fraud are finally emerging -- the people who concocted it are getting arrested and the media propagandists they used are exposed -- this is the only acknowledgment and self-critique we're going to get. Just: "whoops": Image
One key point I omitted: no discussion of the Russiagate fraud and the media's role is complete without highlighting their key partners in all of this: the security state services (CIA/FBI/NSA/DOJ).

The most under-discussed media story of this decade is how they all but merged. Image
See here for a graphic illustration: the most popular liberal media figure and her literal colleague, the ex-CIA Director, somehow employed by a major "news" outlet without shame, muse on whether Trump is guilty of "treason" because he serves Russia:

To Deny the "Lab Leak" COVID Theory, the NYT and WPost Use Dubious and Conflicted Sources -- all without disclosing any of this…
A bizarre and abrupt reversal by scientists regarding COVID's origins, along with clear conflicts of interest, create serious doubts about their integrity. Yet major outlets keep relying on them: Peter Daszak, desperate to deny a "lab leak," but others who are highly compromised.
One of the most bizarre and still-unexplained episodes in the COVID pandemic was the group of scientists who told Fauci in late January they concluded COVID came from a lab. Within days, they publicly recanted, then received millions in grants from NIAID, controlled by Fauci.

Foi uma honra poder passar alguns dias com uma mulher, Luisa Mell, que dedicou tanto de sua vida à proteção dos animais, uma causa central para mim e David.

It was an honor to be able to spend a few days with Luisa Mell, who has devoted her life to the protection of animals.
Se você está em São Paulo e está pensando em adotar um cachorro ou um gato, o instituto dela é inspirador - e tem lindos animais. E se você está no Rio (Maricá), nosso abrigo, @abrigo_hope, tb tem.

Em todos os casos: pfv adote, não compre.…
Adoramos a Luisa Mell e trabalho dela, e meu dueto musical favorito agora é ela e @davidmirandario.

Having lived through the Bush-to-Obama handoff, 2 things were obvious once Biden won:

1) He would continue most of Trump's immigration policies that were branded Nazi-like and Hitler-esque; and

2) The people most flamboyantly emoting about its horrors would stop mentioning it.
For instance, we have not been treated to any of this throughout 2021 even though the situation at the border has been utterly horrific for migrants and other asylum seekers:

Nor, of course, have we been gifted with the 2021 sequel to this award-winning drama in a parking lot.

In our podcast yesterday, @AndrayDomise and I discussed one of the key changes of the Trump era for left-liberal politics: by casting Trump as the supreme threat, any institution opposed to him (including security state agencies: CIA/NSA/FBI) became benign if not overt allies.
We also discussed how vital this Trump-era transformation is: how spaces on the liberal-left for working against the security state virtually disappeared, while the populist right became receptive to it, a key driver of the split of myself and others with parts of the left.
We also discussed the immediate exploitation of the new COVID variant to again justify a broad array of some of the most repressive state policies, and how there seems to be no end in sight, by design. @andraydomise presciently warned of these dangers in April of last year.

How the Corporate Media Launched a Disinformation Campaign to Protect Fauci…
For the Outside Voices page of our Substack, @lwoodhouse reports: as public anger grew over gruesome and medically useless dog experiments funded by Fauci's agencies and budgets, his media allies came to the rescue with a pack of lies.
What happened here is fascinating: Fauci's agencies have funded *thousands* of gruesome dog experiments. To discredit this, the WPost and others focused on *one*: a particularly hideous one where the researchers said they had NIAID $$, then retracted that when public anger grew:

I'll be on Fox tonight at 8:50pm ET with Tucker Carlson discussing the gruesome dog experimentation industry, how taxpayer-funded programs fuel some of the worst abuses, and how media outlets -- to protect Fauci -- are denying the key facts under the guise of "fact-checking."
Here's the reporting I did last week on the hit piece the @washingtonpost was preparing to punish @WhiteCoatWaste, one of the key groups -- along with @beaglefreedom -- denouncing these moral atrocities. They're shielding these programs to protect Fauci.…
We'll have a new article on our Substack tomorrow from @lwoodhouse on the disinformation campaign from media and the NIAID, along with the usual propagandists like @davidfrum, to lie about dog experiments to protect Fauci. He's been reporting on it from the start. His key point:
