TONY KEVIN—There are only two kinds of news about Russia now permitted in our mainstream media, including the ABC and SBS: negative news and comment, or silence. Unless a story can be given an anti-Russian sting, it will not be carried at all. Important stories are simply spiked, like last week’s Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, chaired by President Putin and attended by Prime Ministers Abe, Mahathir and Modi, among 8500 participants from 65 countries.

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS—Russia’s other alternative to the self-defeating one the government has chosen is to hit back hard. Lendman suggests that when US or Israeli attacks on Syria kill Russians, Russia should destroy the bases from which the attacks originated and simply quit worrying about whether the necessary retaliation kills Americans and Israelis. Why are Americans and Israelis more important than Russians and Syrians? Does the Russian government believe the propaganda about Americans being “exceptional and indispensable” and the Israelis being “God’s chosen people?”

MEDIA LENS—As Oborne noted, Assange is ‘responsible for breaking more stories than all the rest of us put together’, ‘each and every one in the public interest’, ‘which any self-respecting reporter would sell his or her grandmother to obtain’. One could hardly think of a more powerful example of someone not ‘pissing around at the margins of the problem’. [Meanwhile] Monbiot is hardly alone in ‘focusing on other issues’, year after year, while Assange rots.

Pamela Anderson stands her ground against the corporate media selection of pathetic ignoramuses, imbeciles and disinformers that cormprise The View. All exponents of bourgeois feminism at its worst. Jimmy sums it all up well. Speaking of one of the regular The View panelists, Joy Behar, he says:”These are people who are paid millions of dollars to talk about the news…it’s called The View..Joy Behar has access to teh Internet just like the rest of us…and she’s sitting there saying, Why is Julian Assange helping Trump…Jim Acosta (ditto)…that’s how so fucking ridiculous these people are…that’s why they are on tv, that’s why they are put on tv…because you’re NOT a deep thinker, you don’t actually know what’s going on, and you can only repeat corporate talking points…and thta’s fucking Joy Behar. She’s NOT a fucking progressive, and am not gonna apologise for her!”

ERIC ZUESSE—Okay, you might say, RT.com was already somewhat that (and more truthful than any of the U.S.-and-allied versions were), before the U.S. Government declared it to be a “foreign agent,” and yet the U.S. regime doesn’t do the same (in effect) banning against the BBC, or against other (U.S.-regime-allied) government-broadcasters. But what’s especially needed, all over the world, are non-U.S.-regime competitors (Russian or otherwise), against Google and Facebook and Twitter, etc., and not only against the U.S. regime’s ’news’-media (NYT, CBS, CNN, NPR, or other).
