RT has asked the US State Department for specific information concerning allegations that Russia is targeting hospitals in Syria. The response was a reiteration of those allegations and a refusal to treat RT in the same way as other media outlets.

During Wednesday’s State Department briefing, spokesman John Kirby accused Russia and the Syrian regime of the bombing of “five hospitals and at least one mobile clinic in Syria.” RT’s reporter Gayane Chichakyan asked Kirby to specify the details of the alleged incidents, including their location.

My Commentary: Well, then… It looks like the mainstream media monopoly is officially losing it’s death-grip over the mind of the public!

Meanwhile, Obama meets with German chancellor, Angela Merkel, in Berlin for a joint press conference, and stands by silently, while she states:

“Digitisation is a disruptive technological force that brings about deep-seated change and transformation in society. Look at the history of the printing press, when this was invented what kind of consequences it had. Or industrialisation, what consequences that had.”

Also…

“Very often, it led to enormous transformational processes within individual societies and it took a while until societies learned to find the right kinds of policies to contain this, to manage and steer this. We live in a period of profound transformation.”

Dying Mainstream Media Monopoly Desperately Attempts to Discredit Independent News Sources as “Fake”

(Jessica Roy) During the election, many people fell prey to fake news stories on social media — even the president-elect ended up retweeting fake statistics. A professor of communication has created a list of unreliable news sites to help people do better.

Melissa Zimdars, an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, put together a publicly available Google doc cataloging “False, misleading, clickbait-y and satirical ‘news’ sources.” It’s been making the rounds on social media as people seek to cleanse their newsfeeds of misinformation.

My Commentary: The Mainstream Media Monopoly has continuously, fraudulently pushed the government’s pro-war narrative, while systematically covering up the harsher realities of these conflicts they promote, for decades, now! (I will provide many examples of this, below…)

But, apparently, the public is supposed to be so very clueless about these puppets and shills as to surrender any semblance of critical thinking and personal responsibility, and accept whatever they and their “experts” label as “fake news.” Ha! This is really just more proof that independent news sources are WINNING the battle for truth, and that the mainstream media is not only losing more credibility than ever, but also getting extremely desperate in their efforts to keep their disinfo-wars and psy-ops against the public raging! This is no surprise, though!

Meanwhile, as the L.A. Times ironically shares their article under the misleading, “click-bait-y” headline, “fake news,” and provides little to no evidence of either of these claims, while also inaccurately headlining the list’s author a “college professor,” all in a display of very poor journalism, Melissa Zimdars, who is actually an *assistant* professor of communication at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, and created this google list of sites, originally labelled it, “False, Misleading, Clickbait-y, and/or Satirical ‘News’ Sources.”

And, within her list, Zimdars originally admitted, “not all of these sources are always or inherently problematic, neither are all of them fake or false… They should be considered in conjunction with other news/info sources due to their tendency to rely on clickbait headlines or Facebook descriptions, etc.” She has since amended her words to the much more simple and clear statement, “not all of the sources listed below should be considered fake.”

She also wrote, “some sources not yet included in this list (although their practices at times may qualify them for addition), such as The Daily Kos, The Huffington Post, and Fox News, vacillate between providing important, legitimate, problematic, and/or hyperbolic news coverage, requiring readers and viewers to verify and contextualize information with other sources.” Go figure!

In Zimdars’ “update 3,” she wrote, “some people are asking which news sources I trust, and all I can say is that I read/watch/listen very widely, from mainstream, corporate owned sources (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes) as well as The Atlantic, National Public Radio, and various local and alternative sources with different political perspectives, some of which are included on this list.” So, it seems that she not only uses her list merely in a skeptical capacity, to more carefully scrutinizes those articles that come from sources she lists, but that she apparently trusts some of the sources that I’m about to list, with evidence, as being unreliable when reporting about WAR – and, sometimes, even when reporting on police criminality, government spying, whistle-blowers, and even elections, too)!

My Commentary: What if, though? Would we just make excuses for continued complacency, or would we finally fight for real justice and peace?
