CALEB MAUPIN—Artemi Panarin is praised by US mainstream media for embracing the string of disruptive protests in Russia. Panarin echoes the US State Department script, presenting the current unsanctioned protests as a fight for freedom against a tyrannical regime. Because Panarin is a “good Russian” who marches in lockstep behind Pentagon narratives, his rather problematic past is overlooked.

ED CURTIN—With the rise of alternate media and a wide array of dissenting voices on the internet, the establishment felt threatened and went on the defensive. It therefore should come as no surprise that those same elite corporate media are now leading the charge for increased censorship and the denial of free speech to those they deem dangerous, whether that involves wars, rigged elections, foreign coups, COVID-19, vaccinations, or the lies of the corporate media themselves. Having already banned critics from writing in their pages and or talking on their screens, these media giants want to make the quieting of dissenting voices complete.

In recent years, the U.S. and China have wrestled on several major international issues – from human rights to international trade – that reflect as much about their differences in political philosophy as the latter’s rise. CGTN’s Zeng Ziyi recently talked to Ajit Singh, journalist and contributor at The Grayzone, about what he learned from reporting on Xinjiang, the role of western media, as well as what he calls the U.S.’ new “Cold War” with China.

ALAN MACLEOD—en Nimmo, a former NATO press officer and current senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, has announced Facebook has hired him to “lead global threat intelligence strategy against influence operations” and “emerging threats.” Nimmo specifically named Russia, Iran and China as potential dangers to the platform.
His announcement was greeted with joy by several NATO officials but was not met with such enthusiasm by others. “More censorship on the way as the former NATO press officer turned Pentagon-funded ‘researcher’ who labeled real people as Russian bots and peddled disinformation to link Jeremy Corbyn to Russian active measures moves to big tech,” responded investigative journalist Max Blumenthal.

STEPHEN LENDMAN—Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova (MZ below) slammed phony US support for free expression, assembly and peaceful protests.
It’s at a time when when its ruling authorities increasingly crack down on fundamental freedoms, tolerating no opposition to their hardline, anti-democratic rule.
MZ referred to orchestrated anti-Russia rallies for two straight weekends, more likely ahead in the spring.
Calling them “provocati(ve),” she stressed that their goal aims to destabilize the country, adding:
“These attempts are doomed to failure,” what the US-dominated West knows but pursues anyway.
