Three Big Lies That Pervade America's 'News' Media

<p><em><a href="http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2016/09/05/three-big-lies-that-pervade-americas-news-media.html">Authored by Eric Zuesse via Strategic-Culture.org,</a></em></p>
<p><em>(This news-report is being submitted to virtually all U.S. national &lsquo;news&rsquo; media, almost all of which are the very same &lsquo;news&rsquo; media that hide these historical truths, which facts thus remain as &laquo;news&raquo; in America, since they&nbsp;still haven&rsquo;t&nbsp;yet been reported as &laquo;news&raquo;, even though they&rsquo;ve now become history &mdash; history that&rsquo;s suppressed in America.)</em></p>
<p><strong>The Big Lies that pervade the U.S. &lsquo;news&rsquo; media are the ones that are essential to sustain&nbsp;</strong><a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/entire-case-sanctions-russia-pure-lies.html" target="_blank"><strong>in order for the deceived American public to accept the fraudulent basis upon which the U.S. regime of Barack Obama has &lsquo;justified&rsquo; his economic sanctions against Russia,</strong> and his pouring of U.S. troops and weapons onto and near Russia&rsquo;s borders</a>:</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p><em><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>1: Calling&nbsp;<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-RyOaFwcEw" target="_blank">the bloody U.S. coup</a>&nbsp;that overthrew&nbsp;<a href="http://web.archive.org/web/20100212144626/http:/www.kyivpost.com/news/politics/detail/58894/" target="_blank">the democratically elected President of Ukraine</a>&nbsp;in February 2014 instead a&nbsp;<a href="http://www.journalofdemocracy.org/sites/default/files/Ukraine-25-3.pdf" target="_blank">&lsquo;democratic revolution&rsquo;</a>&nbsp;against him, which established &lsquo;democracy in Ukraine,&rsquo; instead of established a<a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/06/ukraine-international-war-criminal-obama-putin-2.html" target="_blank">dictatorship</a>&nbsp;and a&nbsp;<a href="http://rinf.com/alt-news/editorials/obama-definitely-caused-malaysian-airliner-downed/" target="_blank">civil war</a>&nbsp;there.</strong></span></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>As even that scholarly source calling it a &lsquo;democratic revolution&rsquo; acknowledged, this &lsquo;democratic revolution&rsquo; &laquo;featured civic self-organization aided&nbsp;by the use of Internet-based social media, neighborhood initiatives, and&nbsp;online news sites,&raquo; and this online operation (directed mainly at neo-Nazis in Ukraine) fits precisely&nbsp;<a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/new-video-evidence-americas-coup-ukraine-means.html" target="_blank">the &laquo;tech camps&raquo; that started inside the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine on 1 March 2013</a>, after Google&rsquo;s CEO Eric Schmidt and Google&rsquo;s and the U.S. State Department&rsquo;s Jared Cohen had deceived wikileaks&rsquo; founder Julian Assange into&nbsp;<a href="https://wikileaks.org/Transcript-Meeting-Assange-Schmidt.html" target="_blank">informing them, on 23 June 2011</a>, how to foment massive public demonstrations online.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Schmidt asked Assange there:&nbsp;&laquo;One of the questions I have is how do you decide which ISPs [to use]&hellip;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>JA:&nbsp;OK. That's a very good question.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>ES:&nbsp;Yeah, it is a pretty complicated question.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>JA:&nbsp;Yeah, so I will give you an example of how not to choose them. So we dealt with a case in the&nbsp;Cacos islands where there was a great little group called the TCI journal. The Turks and Cacos&nbsp;Islands Journal, which is sort of a best use case of the internet. So who are they? Well they are a&nbsp;bunch of legal reformers&hellip;&nbsp;People are going from... young people are going from apolitical to political. It is a very very interesting transition to&nbsp;see&raquo;.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Assange even bragged to Schmidt and Cohen (who was very close to Cohen&rsquo;s other boss Hillary Clinton) &laquo;Something I am certain about is that we changed the outcome of the Kenyan election in 2007&raquo;. Assange, at that time, seems to have had no idea at all, that he was actually telling this to coup-plotters, instead of to democracy-champions.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Only in&nbsp;retrospect&nbsp;did Assange come to recognize that, as he headlined in October 2014,&nbsp;<a href="https://wikileaks.org/google-is-not-what-it-seems/" target="_blank">&laquo;Google Is Not What It Seems&raquo;</a>. That&rsquo;s when he noted, &laquo;Jared Cohen could be wryly named Google&rsquo;s 'director of regime change'&raquo;.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>This coup (called &rsquo;the Maidan revolution&rsquo; or &laquo;Euromaidan&raquoWink&nbsp;<a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/new-video-evidence-americas-coup-ukraine-means.html" target="_blank">started being organized inside the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine by no later than 1 March 2013</a>, but&nbsp;<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_Euromaidan" target="_blank">wikipedia says</a>&nbsp;instead: &laquo;Euromaidan started in the night of 21 November 2013 when up to 2,000 protesters gathered at Kiev's&nbsp;Maidan&nbsp;Nezalezhnosti&nbsp;and began to organize themselves with the help of&nbsp;social networks&raquo;. (Nothing was mentioned there about the U.S. Embassy&rsquo;s having organized them.)</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and other sales-promotion operations for Lockheed Martin etc., blame the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.globalresearch.ca/gallup-ukrainians-loathe-the-kiev-government-imposed-by-obama/5497679" target="_blank">increased misery in Ukraine after the coup</a>, on Ukrainians,&nbsp;<a href="http://carnegieendowment.org/2016/02/03/decisive-turn-risks-for-ukrainian-democracy-after-euromaidan-pub-62641" target="_blank">such as</a>: &laquo;Under attack from within and without, Ukraine cannot build a democratic future without Western support [from Western taxpayers, to fund those weapons-sales]. Both financial and security assistance are critical to the [new fascist Ukrainian] state&rsquo;s survival. Yet there&nbsp;is one caveat: Ukraine&rsquo;s friends should recall their experiences providing aid to other post-communist countries, and enforce strict conditionality, especially regarding control over powerful&nbsp;elites [such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/05/key-man-behind-may-2nd-odessa-ukraine-trade-unions-building-massacre-many-connections-white-house.html" target="_blank">those who actually worked with Obama&rsquo;s coup</a>], to ensure that their support achieves its desired aims. Constructing a new democracy in Ukraine will take extraordinary care and vigilance&raquo;. In other words: &lsquo;we&rsquo; tried our best; &rsquo;they&rsquo; failed.&nbsp;&lsquo;We&rsquo; didn&rsquo;t impose this bloody outcome on them; &lsquo;they&rsquo; &mdash; America&rsquo;s victims &mdash; did it to themselves.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>This coup and its aftermath (<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwsMwwQvlNg" target="_blank">ethnic cleansing</a>&nbsp;to&nbsp;<a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/08/enemies-ukraine-speak.html" target="_blank">get rid of the people</a>&nbsp;in&nbsp;<a href="http://observationalism.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Ukraine_historical_vs_electoral_2010.png" target="_blank">the area of Ukraine that had voted 90 % for the man Obama overthrew</a>) were&nbsp;<a href="http://www.blacklistednews.com/The_Most-Censored_News_Story_of_2014_Was_____%28What%3F%29_____./40851/0/38/38/Y/M.html" target="_blank">the most-censored news story of 2014</a>, and the U.S.&nbsp;&lsquo;news&rsquo; media&nbsp;still&nbsp;don&rsquo;t report any of it, because for them to report it truthfully would be for them to acknowledge what they&rsquo;d been covering-up and lying about ever since the February 2014 coup &mdash; and they&nbsp;never&nbsp;report about their own cover-up operations.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>2: Ignoring that the breakaway of Crimea from Ukraine, and that the 90+% vote of Crimeans, for Crimea to rejoin Russia (of which Crimea had been a part until the Soviet dictator transferred it to Ukraine in 1954), resulted directly from&nbsp;America&rsquo;s violent overthrow of the Ukrainian President, for whom 75% of Crimeans had voted.</strong></span></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>On 20 February 2014, at the very height of the bloody U.S. coup that ended democracy in Ukraine, the Obama Administration&rsquo;s rabidly Russia-hating nazi-inspired thugs beat and brutally killed many Crimeans who were escaping from Kiev after having been peacefully demonstrating there against the U.S.-nazi overthrow-Yanukovych operation. This&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sott.net/article/320609-Crimeans-recount-their-experiences-when-the-West-took-Ukraine" target="_blank">&laquo;Korsun massacre&raquo;</a>&nbsp;is ignored in the &lsquo;news&rsquo; accounts in America, but it played a key role in terrifying the Crimean population against the coup-installed regime and in motivating them to seek the protection of Russia by voting, on 16 March 2014, for Crimea to rejoin Russia.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>3: Lying to say that a majority of Syrians want to replace Bashar al-Assad as Syria&rsquo;s President, and to say that the Obama regime wants a democratic Syria and that the Russian government does not.</strong></span></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Of course, because the U.S. used to be predominantly a democracy, the myth of America&rsquo;s&nbsp;still being&nbsp;a&nbsp;<a href="http://web.archive.org/web/20150805164144/http:/www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-zuesse/jimmy-carter-is-correct-t_b_7922788.html" target="_blank">&lsquo;democracy&rsquo;</a>&nbsp;is considered acceptable to promulgate even today. However, not only was today&rsquo;s U.S. government&nbsp;<a href="http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article40313.htm" target="_blank">one of only three governments at the U.N. voting to oppose a resolution condemning nazism and denial of the Holocaust</a>, but on&nbsp;<a href="http://rinf.com/alt-news/breaking-news/how-bamboozled-the-american-public-are-about-syria/" target="_blank">at least two occasions</a>&nbsp;the U.N. Secretary General Ban ki-Moon criticized the Obama Administration&rsquo;s insistence that in the next Syrian Presidential election the Syrian people must be prohibited from being allowed to vote for Bashar al-Assad.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>*&nbsp; *&nbsp; *</p>
<p>Most Americans still don&rsquo;t know any of these facts, because the U.S. &lsquo;news&rsquo; media refused to report these &mdash; and many other important &mdash; facts to them. <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Can such a country even&nbsp;possibly&nbsp;be an authentic democracy?</strong></span></p>
<p><em>It&rsquo;s no different than the lies that were stenographically reported as &lsquo;truth&rsquo; about&nbsp;<a href="http://rinf.com/alt-news/breaking-news/americas-news-is-heavily-censored/" target="_blank">&lsquo;Saddam&rsquo;s WMD&rsquo;</a>, except that, this time, the lies&nbsp;<a href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/06/indications-u-s-planning-nuclear-attack-russia.html" target="_blank">can produce nuclear war with Russia</a>.</em></p>
