Bribed to Lie and Mass Deceive
by Stephen Lendman
MSM across the board are state-sponsored agents of mass deception.
The Babylon Bee (BB) published a checklist with signs to show that so-called news anchors are lying.
With rare exceptions that prove the rule, it applies to virtually all reporters, correspondents and editors.
They're bribed to stick exclusively to the fabricated official narrative on virtually all major domestic and geopolitical issues.
According to BB, signs to prove they're lying on television include when:
They're talking, gesticulating wildly, reporting state-approved fake news, won a PUlitzer prize, promote kill shots, express support for Ukrainian Nazis and what relates to all of the above.
What pretends to be news, information and analysis by the dominant 4th estate is rubbish to be shunned, not followed.
What the self-styled newspaper of record, NYT, calls news fit to print is state-approved Big Lies and mass deception — the fabricated official narrative, while suppressing truth and full disclosure.
Like other MSM, the Times is paid big bucks to lie and mass-deceive over the other way around.
It's bribed to misinform and disinform while banning indisputable truth-telling from its daily fake news editions.
There's no ambiguity about the reality of Russia's overwhelming military superiority over Nazi-infested Ukraine.
Slaying the made-in-the-USA monster was certain from day-one of its liberating SMO — what's largely accomplished with the regime and its defeated military near collapse.
Not according to NYT fake news.
What no responsible editor would publish, the Times featured with a litany of bald-faced Big Lies, while suppressing reality on the ground.
Citing invented Russian problems in Ukraine, the Times mocked its commander-in-chief, General Valery Gerasimov, a brilliant strategist and tactician.
Ukraine's military commander, Valery Zaluzhny, praised his expertise, saying:
"I read everything he wrote."
"He is the most intelligent of men, and my expectations of him were enormous."
He "learned from Gerasimov," a giant on all things military in sharp contrast to his pigmy US/NATO and Ukrainian counterparts.
Along with his duties as commander-in-chief of Russia's military, his control over its liberating SMO likely signaled an overarching aim to slay the made-in-the-USA Ukraine monster once and for all decisively.
It's happening in real time.
In its daily propaganda reports, Al Jazeera included nothing on Nazi-infested Ukraine for the past few days — after featuring it daily — because of how decisively Russia is smashing its scourge on the battlefield.
Even the WSJ admitted the reality of "outnumbered and outgunned" Ukrainian troops by Russian firepower.
It quoted unnamed Ukrainian soldiers saying that "Russians (are) slowly taking territory in the (strategically important) city" of Artyomovsk, regime troops nearly encircled and defeated.
And this reality check by noted military analyst, Andrei Martyanov, saying:
Scores of US/NATO tanks to Ukraine "will change absolutely nothing" strategic on the ground.
Because of how effectively Russia is smashing its greatly degraded military, US/Western regimes are increasing desperate over their inability to turn certain defeat of Nazi-infested Ukraine into triumph.
And this Martyanov reality check:
US-dominated "NATO doesn't have a required force to go in and fight Russia conventionally without sustaining catastrophic losses and, thus, defeat."
"The challenges of even assembling such a force are so immense that the only tool US(NATO) has left at its disposal is its nuclear arsenal."
All things related to Russia and Ukraine "have shown that the West and its military cannot do serious strategic and operational planning" — what Russia's military headed by Gerasimov excels at.
And "we can confidently state that Western intelligence on a strategic level is simply inadequate, to put it mildly."
"After all, it is manned by people who are products of primarily humanities field of higher education in the West, and we all know what an academic disaster and fraud it is today."
"We are talking about miscalculation (and incompetence that led to) the downfall of Napoleon and Hitler."
The empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies at home and worldwide has "feet of clay."
Its decline and fall is clear to those paying attention to reality on the ground.
Hegemon USA's military-industrial complex is out-strategized, outwitted and outgunned by Russia's military superiority.
Huffing and puffing otherwise by humpty-dumpty US/Western regimes and their MSM co-conspirators can't turn their sow's ear military against superior Russian forces into a silk purse.
Yet brainwashed readers are taken in by Times propaganda rubbish like the following perversion of reality, falsely claiming:
"Moscow does not have the troops, ammunition or equipment that military officials say it needs to mass the big offensive promised by the country's senior military leader (sic)."
At its discretion, Russian forces can turn strategic Ukrainian targets to smoldering rubble in short order.
They can transform Kiev into a wasteland.
Yet according to Times trash, Russia faces "shortages of ammunition and well-trained troops (sic)."
It quoted Biden regime under secretary of war, Colin Kahl's perversion of reality, an example of Pentagon incompetence, saying:
"The Russians have still not figured it out about how they intend to command the fight (sic), and I think the dysfunction among Russian commanders is pretty profound (sic)."
The above remark applies to US-dominated NATO and Ukrainian Nazis, clearly not militarily superior
Russian firepower and tactics.
With Nazi-infested Ukraine virtually defeated, its military near collapse after sustaining a half million or more casualties, the Times sounded delusional saying:
Vladmir Putin "accomplished few of his goals (sic)."
"Russian forces failed to seize Kiev" — an objective it never sought, the Times left unexplained.
And US-installed puppet Zelensky is still around.
At its discretion, Russia can eliminate him easily.
A powerless figurehead, a detached from reality buffoon, the regime's illegitimate kleptocrat-in-chief at a time when opposition parties are banned, his days of committing war crimes unaccountably are numbered.
When the made-in-the-USA, Nazi-infested regime and its military collapse, the Times and other MSM most likely will pretend not to notice by changing the subject.
A Final Comment
What WaPo fake news falsely called "66,000 (Russian) war crimes…hundreds" more daily applies to US/NATO regimes and Ukrainian Nazis — clearly not the Russian Federation.
What WaPo falsely called Russian "theft of property, torture, murder, rape, the deportation of Ukrainian children to" its territory trampled on truth.
Its claim about "defeating the Russian militarily" by Ukraine doesn't rise to the level of bad fiction.
Virtually everything US/Western regimes and their MSM echo chamber report about all things Russia and Ukraine has been fake news over the real thing.
Virtually everything they report on all major domestic and geopolitical issues is worlds apart from truth and full disclosure — state-approved propaganda rubbish consistently featured instead.
