Russia, Syria, and Western Media Disinformation

October 1, 2015 at 3:42 PM


Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org appears on RT (September 30, 2015) to discuss the media reaction to Russian airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in Syria. He notes that the western media acts as a propaganda appendage of the political establishment, parroting its talking points and bolstering its narrative. Draitser cites examples from Syria and Ukraine to illustrate how the corporate media lies and/or distorts information in order justify US-NATO policies. He also adds that this latest round of propaganda is designed to both deflect attention away from US actions, and to capitalize on a deeply held Russophobia still prevalent in the western mind.
