The US news media and war
Warning: Strong adult language
Why does it take a comedian to tell the truth
You know what the greatest predictor of future wars in America is?
Watch the US news media.
When they start the war drums, war is not far away.
The terrible thing is: It works.
They pass along lies and hysteria and “the people” buy it.
Of course, the people don’t really buy it.
The anti-war demonstrations before the attack on Iraq were among the largest in the history of the world.
But the news media reported none of it. Instead it have the pro-war yahoos total control over the discussion.
