pcr once again hits the target squarely. there is no truth in 'our free press' because it would affect the profits of the corporations that own and operate that alleged free press. here are examples and evidence enough to convince some, but not all, who still believe the official lies;
Truth Is Evaporating Before Our Eyes
Does anyone notice?
Paul Craig Roberts
On September 17, I posted my column, “Evidence is no longer a Western
value.” I used as an example the blame that has been put on Russia for
the shot down Malaysian airliner. No evidence whatsoever exists for
the accusation, and massive evidence has been presented that the
airliner was shot down by the neonazis that seized power as a result of
the Washington-organized coup in Ukraine.
Blame was fixed on Russia not by any evidence but by continuous
evidence-free accusations that began the moment the airliner was shot
down. Anyone who asked for evidence was treated as a “Putin apologist.”
This took evidence out of the picture.
Wherever we look in these times, we see evidence-free accusations
established as absolute facts: Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass
destruction,” “Iranian nukes,” “Russian invasion of Ukraine,” the
Trump/Putin conspiracy that stole the 2016 US presidential election,
Syrian use of poison gas. Not a scrap of evidence exists for any of
these accusations, but the truth of the accusations is established in
many minds worldwide.
Science gave the world the principle of evidence-based fact, which
did away with the burning of witches and political decisions based in
superstitution. Truth became a force.
But truth can get in the way of agendas, and as elites recovered
their power from the social, political, and economic reforms of a
previous era, truth was divided into categories and cut so fine that it
disappeared. For the elite truth became identical to their economic
interests, and Identity Politics stripped truth of its universal
meaning and reduced truth to self-pleading race and gender truth.
The result is that today truth is established not by evidence but by repetition of accusations and falsehoods.
