‘UK Security Services Neutralized Country’s Leading Liberal Newspaper

‘The Guardian has been successfully deterred from producing its former adversarial reporting on the “security state”’

 

While The Guardian has occasionally acted on a liberal impulse for its own special reasons, that headline about “leading liberal paper” just could not possibly be more inaccurate.

The Guardian’s main sympathies are not far removed from those of the Tory Party. That isn’t an exaggeration.

If you read it closely for a while, as I used to do, that becomes abundantly clear.

It likes to play games around the edges with material that might be identified as quite liberal, but it serves almost as window-dressing, feel-good stuff making social statements, but nothing around core matters in politics and world affairs.

The paper’s heart is not liberal at all.

It supported, for example, the ugly McCarthyite attacks on the Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn more enthusiastically perhaps than anyone else.

It holds biased views on Israel’s ugly behavior, and it has been friendly to direct political intrusions into British politics from Israel – a country where liberals are genuinely despised.

It is friendly to America’s destructive foreign policies, as the Neocon Wars. It has always embraced the rape of Syria and America’s dishonest excuses there.

It promoted the fake stories about Syria’s use of chemical weapons.

It supported American and British bombing and missile attacks against Syria.

It enthusiastically embraced the new Saudi Crown Prince, giving him glowing reports about being progressive, a bad joke to say the least.

Indeed, not very long ago, The Guardian ran an ugly smear campaign against Julian Assange himself.

The paper is intensely Russo-phobic, prejudice of any kind hardly being a liberal characteristic.

How easily the The Guardian’s own myths about itself make it into an independent paper like Consortium News. It’s actually quite surprising.

I have many, many examples of The Guardian’s immense bias and work for establishment disinformation, but here is my favorite, one where I analyzed it in some detail. Readers may enjoy it:

  2. Hey John, the whole MSM is a huge Propanda Machine regardless how they tell their readers what they represent.
    I was reading the MSM 7 Years online (between 2001 – 2009), from China via Iran,Europe, Cuba, to the USA.
    The whole system has been rigged before 9/11. During the early 70ties, working 2 years in the USA, I already felt it then.
    People cannot trust any Print-MSM on this planet. They’re only there for the money, not for the so-called 4th estate, those who
    should control the powers that govern.
    Keep it up !
    Best regards
