She’s Back: Hillary Hyping Fake News
by Stephen Lendman
People should only be concerned about government and media scoundrels’ news, information and opinion – all fake, all the time, Big Lies and deception, toxic stuff on issues mattering most.
Reliable sources were denigrated on the PropOrNot hit list, considered fake news sites or Kremlin agents, disgracefully hyped by the neocon/CIA connected Washington Post, a leading proliferator of fake news, a disgrace to professional journalism – banned at WaPo, banned at the NYT, banned by other leading broadsheets and magazines, banned on mainstream TV and radio news.
There’s a war on against the most fundamental of fundamental rights in America and Europe. Speech, media and academic freedoms are being attacked. They’re too vital to lose, yet are slipping away with too few people noticing, way too few acting to stop it.
Yesterday on Capitol Hill, Hillary was back, an exposed war criminal, racketeer, pathological liar – railing against what she called “epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year” – hers excluded, of course. “It’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,”she added.
“This is not about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days to do their jobs, contribute to their communities. It is a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly.”
Omitted was her support for all US wars of aggression since the 1990s, including direct involvement in the rape of Yugoslavia, Libya and Syria, along with drone wars on Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere, as well as backing Israeli high crimes.
She urged protecting nonexistent “American democracy and innocent lives” it massacres in one war theater after another from truth-telling, found only through alternative media sources, including social media.
The scourge she and husband Bill represent still hasn’t gone away. Maybe the only way is by locking them both up longterm.
