BBC News correspondent Orla Guerin got more than she bargained for when her questioning of President Aliyev about the supposed lack of media freedom in his country ended up with him grilling her on Julian Assange’s imprisonment. Guerin’s interview with Aliyev on Monday took an unexpected turn when the journalist alleged that the Azerbaijani people lacked access to non-state-sanctioned media and could not enjoy their human rights to the fullest, As evidence, she cited “many independent sources,” but did not name them.

Hybrid war on China rolls on with disgraceful fake journalism crafted by marquee brands like Frontline.
PATRICE GREANVILLE—Since the the good old days are here again with Biden, the deep state media is wasting no time to ratchet up its “Chinagate” angle, just in case Biden should forget to go full hawk on Beijing (which is not likely to happen, judging from his record and the pool of war criminals he will be selecting from for his foreign policy cabinet). Observe how in this promo mail, FRONTLINE, which once upon a time came up with some acceptable instances of journalism, is now, in the era of Russiagate, and Trump derangement, another victim of the all-enveloping media degeneracy in the service of an equally degenerate empire. Word for word, this promo is a textbook example of Cold War propaganda at its vilest. The intent to demonize Beijing is clear, yet I’m sure this despicable program will fool millions, as it was designed to do. In the annals of filth, the American propaganda system has no peers when it comes to effective, sanctimonious disinformation, the favorite pose of consummate hypocrites.

GLENN GREENWALD—Talk about lawlessness and authoritarianism. As I wrote in The Washington Post shortly before Trump was inaugurated, the Bush and Obama administrations “detained terrorism suspects without due process, proposed new frameworks to keep them locked up without trial, targeted thousands of individuals (including a U.S. citizen) for execution by drone, invoked secrecy doctrines to shield torture and eavesdropping programs from judicial review, and covertly expanded the nation’s mass electronic surveillance.” Indeed, Trump was able to campaign on, and then implement, escalated bombing campaigns that killed large numbers of civilians because the bipartisan framework had been laid over the prior two presidencies that empowered that.

Glenn Greenwald joins to discuss the election (taped on Thursday), leaving the Intercept, ludicrous voting and ballot counting system in the USA, and more. Matt and Katie ponder the future of both parties after a tightly contested result, the Democrats clear refusal to represent anyone except their super-rich 0.1% donors. Engaging analysis of the rise of hyperpartisan media and the now complete absence of journalistic integrity. “Cognitive capture” of most major media figures is now the polite term for this form of selling out.

CALEB MAUPIN—The conservative organization known as Judicial Watch reported that 353 counties in more than 29 states across the United States had voter registration rates above 100%, meaning that there were more people registered to vote than eligible voting residents. This is hardly a small irregularity, but the Navalny crowd has felt no need to highlight it. One will recall how 4 cases of a single person attempting to vote twice in Russia’s constitutional referendum became the source of outcry just a few months earlier.
