Globe and Mail unmasks notorious Putin puppet

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Campbell Clark and Mark MacKinnon are vying for yet another one of those “journalism awards” that mainstream media types periodically bestow upon one another for being really good at what mainstream journalists do; propagate official state propaganda.

By coincidence, I happened to catch a Jens Stoltenberg interview on CBC as I was driving into town to fork over the better part of ten bucks to the Korean extortionist for my Saturday Globe and Mail. Here’s Jens on propaganda;

When we (NATO) are faced with Russian propaganda, we never reply with propaganda. We reply with facts. We reply with the truth.

The folks who wouldn’t raise an eyebrow at that whopper are the kind of folks who are the target audience for the Clark – MacKinnon take-down of Michel Chossudovsky and the website he’s run for the past fifteen years or so, Global Research.

I’ve been a news junkie pretty much since I learned to read, and one thing I know for sure is that there’s no single news source that you can count on to tell the whole story. You have to read around.

I like to check out the NYT and Washington Post websites every day to see what’s what in the world of news. Sputnik and RT can be relied on to supply another perspective. Deutsche Welle, France 24, AJE, Dawn, Haaretz, the JPost and Press TV round out my well-balanced daily news diet. And of course I have a real newspaper in my hands every day, and that’s generally the paper Clark and MacKinnon write for.

I don’t get around to Global Research very often.

When I do, it looks like an op-ed aggregator more than anything. The people I’d be inclined to read there, Johnstone, Parry, the indefatigable Paul Craig Roberts (who, BTW is a little too intense for my taste, but nevertheless well worth reading) I’ve already read elsewhere.

So why does the Globe see fit to devote two pages to Chossudovsky?

Because he’s a Putin stooge.

That’s right.

He promotes the conspiracy theory that “the ouster of Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych was a Western-backed coup rather than a popular revolution.”

That’s a conspiracy theory?

Not to anyone familiar with the Nuland – Pyatt tapes.

What the Clark – MacKinnon story alludes to but fails to follow up on, is that Big Tech in it’s role as hand-maiden to Empire is already re-jigging their aggregator algorithms to make sure you’re far less likely to accidentally happen upon Global Research and other non-conformist sites.

That’s something to think about.
