* Mainstream media still living in propaganda-ville , by Robert Parry, Consortium News, July 6, 2017
The stakes in U.S.-Russia relations could not be higher – possible nuclear conflagration and the end of civilization. But the U.S. mainstream media is still slouching around in “propaganda-ville”, says Robert Parry.
* How to make Gitmo prisoners love America? Stop them watching RT, by RT writers, published on the RT writers’ blog at RT.com, July 7, 2017
[CNN jumped on a story of prisoner abuse at the outrageously illegal Guantanamo Bay detention center, the place that violates Cuba’s territorial sovereignty, to boot. But it wasn’t a story about prisoner mistreatment and torture. No, CNN was outraged to learn that RT was one of the television channels available to detainees at the place!]

[CNN can still do investigative journalism, apparently. A few days ago, it triumphantly announced that it had discovered the identity of the man who created the video meme of Donald Trump pummeling the network’s logo in a wrestling ring. The man was so intimidated by CNN’s heroics that he issued a public apology. For creating a video meme! The clip is an altered version of Donald Trump’s appearance at a WWE wrestling event in 2007 in which he “attacked” franchise owner Vince McMahon in a scripted appearance.]
* Why CNN’s downfall may be the most significant thing in the world right now, by Caitlin Johnstone, Medium.com, July 6, 2017
CNN seems to finally be learning that the harder it struggles against the tar pit of public resentment that it has created for itself, the faster it will sink…
In case you were thinking that CNN is an expert at the anti-Russia game, it doesn’t hold a candle to the likes of Guardian columnist Richard Wolffe. His invective-filled commentary on the meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin on July 7 takes the meaning of ‘propaganda’ to a whole new level.
