CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—The dominant worldview in any collective of journalists is statistically likely to be a mainstream worldview, simply because it’s more common by its very nature. Mainstream worldviews are only mainstream because vast amounts of wealth and effort went into shoving them into the mainstream by sheer force for the benefit of the rich and powerful, whose kingdoms are built upon the capitalist imperialist status quo. If you set out to just hire a bunch of journalists who seem good to you, you’re necessarily going to get a lot of people unwittingly promoting the interests of the rich and powerful just by sheer statistical probability.

S. LENDMAN—An Oxford University Internet Institute’s study titled “The Organizational Behavior of RT” was based on dubious questioning of 23 unidentified current and former company sources — only two still with RT. A total of 240 current and former company staffers were contacted for the so-called study. Over 90% declined to be interviewed. Study results lost legitimacy for its small sample size, over 91% comprised of former staffers. No polling organization would ever conduct or publish opinion research this way and consider results representative of a larger universe.

ED CURTIN—In this age of arm-chair reporters, he stood out for his boldness and indefatigable courage. He told it straight. This irritated certain people and some pseudo-left publications, who sensed in him a no bullshit fierceness and nose for hypocrisy that frightened them, so they stopped publishing his writing.

ANDRE VLTCHEK—The Economist (a pretentious rag with a hefty circulation in the US) is extremely biased; it is pre-historically conservative, anti-Russian, anti-Chinese, and laughably cold-war-style – anti-Communist. But it has some breaks and limits, which the liberal mainstream media already lost many years ago. And it does not forgive what it considers ‘bad manners’ and ‘bad taste.’ Recently, an on-going saga which involves a notorious right-wing ‘couple’ – Guo Wengui and Steve Bannon – received unusually harsh but frank analyses from The Economist, while all big British liberal newspapers have been busy trashing, fanatically, everything Chinese and Russian.
