My point is a simple one.
You use info from a Western organization to point out bias in Western media.
You see no irony in that?


Well, he is using a UK source to point out how a US media report was fabricated. Not much irony in that...

The point was, the West and Western media.
Last time I checked the UK was in the West.
Irony intact!

Hi Wowzers

Your point is very clear.
Thank you very much for that.

"Not everyone from the West is blind, right?"

And of course the Western media should be self-policing according to its own structure.  But you certainly see nothing of this behaviour in the less reputable rags and outlets.

That's why they are called rags.

General Electric owns NBC and GE as well as News Corp, Time Warner, and ABC News are Corporate members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Combined with the relentless propaganda schemes of our government and the military-industrial complex I'm hardly expecting every story to be reasonable and balanced.

They certainly won't take American imperialism seriously.

Hi kodama

Unfortunately they do.

In all countries of the world including the West people wake up read or listen to the news and never ask why?  It is delivered they consume it.

They believe every part of it.  Only a few try to qualify it.

Am I anti West?  NO! Definately not. They are lovely people, as are all the peoples of the world but the media is issue driven and dominated by private owners.  Private ownership equals money.  That is the problem.
It needs to generate income and you will find no fairness in this type of system.

It is like giving a heroin addict the key to purchasing the next fix.  It has to be found by any means.
