JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE NEW YORK TIMES IS THE OFFICIAL HOUSE ORGAN FOR AMERICA’S POWER ESTABLISHMENT – IT “AUTHENTICATES” THE GOVERNMENT’S MANY LIES RATHER THAN INVESTIGATE TO REVEAL THEM – IT HAS ALWAYS DONE SO – NOW IT GOES ALL SELF-RIGHTEOUS OVER SOMEONE SPECULATING ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF CORONAVIRUS AND REVIVES THE LANGUAGE OF THE COLD WAR – AND OF COURSE THE TARGET IS CHINA   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY STEVEN MYER FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES IN THE UNZ REVIEW

 

“Chinese officials and news outlets have floated unfounded theories that the United States was the source of the virus.

“The circulation of disinformation is not a new tactic for the Communist Party state”

 

That last line comes straight from the days of the Cold War. It represents insufferable self-righteousness from a newspaper that functions almost as an official state organ on all weighty matters, especially those abroad.

The world today knows how the American government lies. Ceaselessly. Often viciously.

Indeed, it has to lie, or it would be admitting to serious criminal behavior in every corner of the world.

It lies about Venezuela.

It lies about Bolivia.

It lies about Cuba.

It lies about Syria.

It lies about Iraq.

It lies about Yemen.

It lies about Iran.

It lies about Afghanistan.

It lies about Libya.

It lies about Saudi Arabia.

It lies about Israel.

It lies about Ukraine.

It lies about Russia.

It lies about China.

It even lies about heroic figures like Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning.

And in all that churning sea of lies, what do the self-righteous journalists and editors of the New York Times do?

Why, they lie to support the lies.

 

AFTERNOTE

Given America’s ugly behavior in the world, its many open hostilities, it should be no surprise that people have suspicions and speculate about the origin of the virus, including quite a number from the United States itself.
