The New York Times has gone completely insane

It has been many years since the New York Times stopped being a newspaper and became a propaganda organ.  But now the New York Times has gone completely insane.  

As I predicted, Putin did not earn any brownie points by giving Washington a higher oil price.

NYT’s Disinformation War on Russia

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

At a time when world solidarity is needed against a global health threat, the NYT and other Western establishment media continue publishing fake news reports about Russia and Vladimir Putin.

Have they no shame? Clearly not! Not ever about sovereign states on the US target list for regime change.

They’re carpet bombed with endless volleys of managed news misinformation and disinformation, truth-telling suppressed.

On Monday, the self-styled newspaper of record in its own mind NYT falsely accused Vladimir of “promot(ing) a decade of disinformation (to) s(ew) confusion, hurt major institutions, and encourage the spread of deadly illnesses (sic).”

Asked about the above rubbish and more of the same from other Western media, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he “can’t comment on this from the point of view of common sense,” adding:

“One might expect that this Russophobic obsession would decline in the current situation, but as we see, it’s not happening.”

“(G)roundless accusations persist,” part of endless US-led propaganda war, a Western specialty.

According to the Times, Putin “has played a principal role in the spread of false information as part of his wider effort to discredit the West and destroy his enemies from within,” adding:

A no-investigation/investigation by the Times falsely claimed to find that “Putin has spread misinformation on issues of personal health for more than a decade (sic).”

“His agents have repeatedly planted and spread the idea that viral epidemics — including flu outbreaks, Ebola and now the coronavirus — were sown by American scientists.”

“The disinformers have also sought to undermine faith in the safety of vaccines, a triumph of public health that Mr. Putin himself promotes at home.”

So-called Times investigations are propaganda exercises used to vilify nations (and their leadership) on the US target list for regime change.

No credible sources that back accusations are presented because none exist.

US history of biowarfare against adversaries is indisputable, an issue I addressed in earlier articles.

In all US wars against invented enemies, the Pentagon used and continues using chemical, biological, radiological, and other banned weapons — notably throughout the post-WW II period.

No sensible person should ever for any reason submit to vaccinations for themselves, their children, or other family members.

Clear scientific evidence shows taking them risks more harm than good.

Nations endorsing or requiring vaccinations have ulterior motives in mind — unrelated to human health.

Instead of highlighting the risks vaccines post to public health, safety and welfare, the NYT and other establish media promote their use in cahoots with self-serving dirty politicians and Big Pharma.

The Times: “The Russian president has waged his long campaign by means of open media, secretive trolls and shadowy blogs that regularly cast American health officials as patronizing frauds (sic.)”

“Of late, new stealth and sophistication have made his handiwork harder to see, track and fight (sic).”

Whenever the Times or other establishment media make accusations against Russia or other sovereign independent countries the US doesn’t control, not a shred of credible evidence is presented because there is none — just baseless claims backed by nothing.

Without it, accusations are groundless. At the same time, major Western media operate as mouthpieces for wealth and power interests, promoting their agenda, including US wars of aggression against nations threatening no one.

The Times cited State Department disinformation about Kremlin connected trolls that don’t exist, spreading “coronavirus misinformation” that’s not happening.

It claimed RT as a “misinformation” source — disturbed that its global reach likely exceeds its own, adding:

Unnamed so-called “experts” fear RT and other truth-telling Russian media will “erode Washington’s influence as well as the core democratic value of relying on demonstrable facts as a basis for decision-making (sic).”

Truth and full disclosure never was a US-led Western attribute nor how its establishment media operate.

They feature state-approved propaganda all the time on issues mattering most — notably how the lying machine NYT operates, deceiving readers, not informing them.
