Glenn Greenwald: Yet Another Media “Bombshell” Collapses

How many narratives and “bombshells” has it been now?

There was Saddam Hussein’s WMD in Iraq. There was the context of the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown which were not what we were led to believe. There was Russiagate which went on for years. There was Russian bounties on American troops in Afghanistan. There was Officer Brian Sicknick being beaten to death with a fire extinguisher by a MAGA mob. Most recently, there was the biggest story of the 21st century which was the origin of COVID-19 and the lab leak theory which was dismissed as a conspiracy theory and “misinformation” by the lying fact checkers and was censored by Big Tech.

Glenn Greenwald relishes picking apart and debunking the “bombshells.”

Glenn Greenwald:

For more than a year, it has been consecrated media fact that former President Donald Trump and his White House, on June 1 of last year, directed the U.S. Park Police to use tear gas against peaceful Lafayette Park protesters, all to enable a Trump photo-op in front of St. John’s Church. That this happened was never presented as a possibility or likelihood but as indisputable truth. And it provoked weeks of unmitigated media outrage, presented as one of the most egregious assaults on the democratic order in decades. …

The IG’s conclusion could not be clearer: the media narrative was false from start to finish. Namely, he said, “the evidence did not support a finding that the [U.S. Park Police] cleared the park on June 1, 2020, so that then President Trump could enter the park.” Instead — exactly as Hemingway’s widely-mocked-by-liberal-outlets article reported — “the evidence we reviewed showed that the USPP cleared the park to allow a contractor to safely install anti-scale fencing in response to destruction of Federal property and injury to officers that occurred on May 30 and May 31.” Crucially, “the evidence established that relevant USPP officials had made those decisions and had begun implementing the operational plan several hours before they knew of a potential Presidential visit to the park, which occurred later that day.” …

Over and over we see the central truth: the corporate outlets that most loudly and shrilly denounce “disinformation” — to the point of demanding online censorship and de-platforming in the name of combating it — are, in fact, the ones who spread disinformation most frequently and destructively. It is hard to count how many times they have spread major fake stories in the Trump years. For that reason, they have nobody but themselves to blame for the utter collapse in trust and faith on the part of the public, which has rightfully concluded they cannot and should not be believed.”

  1. If Greenwald doesn’t stop embarrassing his fellow Whites in the media, they will sic the adl on him and silence him for good.

  2. It should be abundantly clear by now, even to a traditional liberal like Mr Greenwald, that the mainstream media is no longer in the business of reporting truth for the benefit of “the public at large.” No, they have a sharply defined viewer-and-readership to whom they are catering, nay FEEDING. It is a frenzy, and they’re chumming the waters with White people’s blood with the sole and absolute purpose of fomenting ravenous anger.

  3. When the Corporate/Globalist World Order bought Mr. Greenwald’s Intercept, tried to tell him what to say, and then fired him when he refused to obey, they messt with the wrong man.

  4. It doesn’t matter. Of course it was bullshit, and nobody who mattered said so at the time. Damage is done and it can’t be repaired after the fact. They have zero incentive to not lie in the future. There are no consequences to them for this.

    You cannot treat an enemy fairly. You must use disproportionate force to deter trespass.

    • Still stuck in the red ZOG vs blue ZOG dichotomy?

      Trump is the enemy. I don’t give a rats ass if the media is unfair to him.

  5. Biden is the author of a surprisingly large number of these out and out lies. Not a sole author but he’s been there seeding almost every audacious rumour in the last 30 years like a good Shabbos Goy.

    This is what we are dealing with. An organized co-opting of the media by the intelligence services of the empire and its colonies. Of which the UK is perhaps the foremost, but at any rate right there along side Canada, Australia and New Zealand (The 5 Eyes).

    This Hannity tier pearl clutching about the media’s dishonesty and, muh hypocrisy, is pointless. Our response to this, as dissidents, needs to go to the heart of the matter, which is the total and complete illegitimacy of any claim to objectivity, thereby neutrality, and by conclusion of any impunity granted to “The Media”.

    They are the enemy. Our enemy.
