Via Global Research – U.S. and other media continue their strong move towards baseless, aka fake, news. We recently caught the New York Times claiming that Russia started the war in Georgia, something the NYT had earlier debunked itself. The Washington Post claimed that
Russian hackers were sneaking into the U.S. electricity grid. The story
fell apart within a few hours. Nothing in it was true. Hundreds of
pieces were written about “peaceful demonstrator” rebels in Syria, about
250,000 civilians besieged in Aleppo or Syrian government bombings of
hospitals that lacked any base in reality.
That onslaught of fake news by repudiated media continues unabated in print, web and TV.
