Filtered media bends our brains

Herb Rothschild’s “Parsing the Trump-Putin summit” was a word of truth in a national media universe behaving like a lynch mob, disregarding objectivity and content, but solely concerned with saber-rattling.

I am no Trump fan. I support Sanders and the Green Party. Rothschild correctly states, “Hillary Clinton, I suspect, induced Obama to adopt a Cold War posture toward Russia” and “It’s an unhappy irony that the noisiest hardliners now are Democrats.”

The filtered corporate media repeats the lie that Putin instigated hostilities by annexing Crimea. But the corporate MSM never mentions that before the Crimea annexation, Hillary Clinton got the CIA to collaborate with Ukrainian neo-Nazis to stage a coup, ousting the democratically elected president, Viktor Yanukovych (a trading partner of Putin’s) on specious corruption charges. Then they installed a NATO-friendly businessman, Oleksandr Turchynov, to promote Western economic interests. For details read “America’s Collusion With Neo-Nazis” in the May 2 issue of The Nation magazine, free online.

The MSM never mentions this coup and that Crimea is host to the entire Russian southern naval fleet, as it has been for decades.
