The Empire’s War On Oppositional Journalism Continues To Escalate

Whenever a nation’s government capitulates to the empire, it gets absorbed into the blob. The bigger the blob of empire gets, the stronger it gets. The stronger it gets, the more capable it becomes of absorbing other not-yet-absorbed nations. — Caitlin Johnstone ⏳ (@caitoz) March 19, 2019 This is all […]

Crazy California Democrats just destroyed freelance journalism in their state, limiting writers to just 35 articles per year

(Natural News) If ever there was a case study for why Democrats should never be given complete control over our country, it is the state of California. Actually, there are a couple of other examples along the West Coast as well, including Washington and much of Oregon, but they aren’t a more […]

‘Whistleblower’ Complaint Linked To Soros-Funded ‘Investigative Journalism’ Group

Sections of a whistleblower’s complaint alleging that President Trump was pressuring the Ukrainian president for political advantage, relied upon a self-described ‘investigative journalism’ group bankrolled by billionaire globalist George Soros. Apart from getting information from a source biased to the left, the complainer compiling and writing the report admitted that virtually everything he accused Donald […]

NYT publisher declares Trump a threat to journalism; forgets to mention Obama’s war on whistleblowers and Julian Assange

Perhaps a worse sin than his purposeful omission of Assange’s pertinent case, though, is Sulzberger’s utterly disingenuous claim that before Donald Trump came along, the US government was “the world’s greatest champion of the free press.” Readers who make it to the end of the piece would be none the wiser as to the fact […]

This Is Not Journalism: Univision Warps Reality to Push US War Agenda

MIAMI — Univision’s Jorge Ramos, sometimes called the “Walter Cronkite of Latin America,” flagrantly lied about his interview with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in February, the recording, which was leaked to Univision itself, reveals.

The Global War on Journalism

Australian Federal Police officers raided two separate news offices within 24 hours this week, in a chilling and blatant attack on the freedom of the press, aimed at intimidating journalists who report on government misconduct and war crimes.

The Media is Finally Realizing What the Prosecution of Assange Means for Journalism

Op-Ed by Caitlin Johnstone (CJ Opinion) — Rachel Maddow has aired a segment condemning the new indictment against Julian Assange for 17 alleged violations of the Espionage Act. Yes, that Rachel Maddow. MSNBC’s top host began the segment after it was introduced by Chris Hayes, agreeing with her colleague that it’s surprising that more news outlets aren’t giving this story more “wall to wall” […]
