The media and the politicians are really to blame for the outbreak of anti-Asian hatred, and Trump is singularly guilty although by no means the sole factor in this ugly phenomenon.

GLENN GREENWALD—I do not believe that this bill will end up doing that, particularly because it empowers the largest media outlets such as The New York Times and MSNBC to dominate the process and because it does not even acknowledge, let alone address, the broader problems plaguing the news industry, including collapsing trust by the public.

MoA—The authors of the Atlantic piece, who are professors at John Hopkins and Harvard, conclude that there is no Chinese ‘financial imperialism’. The whole concept is wrong:
The notion of “debt-trap diplomacy” casts China as a conniving creditor and countries such as Sri Lanka as its credulous victims. On a closer look, however, the situation is far more complex. China’s march outward, like its domestic development, is probing and experimental, a learning process marked by frequent adjustment. After the construction of the port in Hambantota, for example, Chinese firms and banks learned that strongmen fall and that they’d better have strategies for dealing with political risk. They’re now developing these strategies, getting better at discerning business opportunities and withdrawing where they know they can’t win. Still, American leaders and thinkers from both sides of the aisle give speeches about China’s “modern-day colonialism.”
‘Financial imperialism’ and ‘modern-day colonialism’ is what the U.S. exercises when it blocks IMF and Worldbank loans or binds them to political conditions. China is so far not known for doing such.

PATRICE GREANVILLE—Craig “Pasta” Jardula and Fiorella Isabel are the unique members of The Convo Couch, one of YouTube’s most valuable leftist discussion programs. Pasta and Fiorella are serious journalists, the precise opposite of the overpaid disinformers crawling all over the fetid, gigantic carcass of a decomposing corporate media. They zero in on issues that matter—like election integrity, for one (which also happens to be a “signature” issue for them)—and they are irrepressible in pointing out what needs to be seen and heard in other areas of social and foreign policy. So now of course, as many expected, YouTube—a de facto fascistic organization— has arbitrarily demonitised them, knowing quite well that that simple move could spell the end or a huge dislocation for their journalistic career. Crippling (or worse, killing) this program is a blow to the public’s ability to know the truth about a cluster of crises determining the course of history at this juncture. We could say shame on YouTube, and your ilk, but that would be dishonest on our part. We know who we are dealing with, ruling class sociopahs trying to protect their power base by retaining control over their eroding and scandalously deceptive narrative. With people like that, shame has never played a role in deterring lowdown, underhanded behaviour. It’s what they are, what they do.

RAMIN MAZAHERI—PressTV feels it is critical to broadcast the DSA’s blacklisting of Iranian media because DSA’s prejudice has many political implications within the country that has waged such devastating capitalist-imperialist war on Iran since 1979. Iran, too, has a critical election coming up to prepare for – in June 2021. Regardless of the timing of the US presidential election – and Iranians reject the absurd, pathetic and amateurish recent claims that Iranian operatives have meddled in the 2020 US election – it is critical to broadcast this information to Iranians so they can have a proper amount of time to absorb and incorporate the implications of DSA’s anti-Iran prejudice into their own analyses as voters and responsible citizens.
