COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY JOE LAURIA IN CONSORTIUM NEWS

 

“RUSSIAGATE: NYT, FB & FBI Say Anti-Trump Site, Now Shutdown, Was Russian Effort to Help Trump Win”

“Misgivings about who ran this site can co-exist with legitimate alarm about the combined attacks by the FBI, the Times and other corporate media on the political nature — and not the accuracy — of its published content”

An excellent piece of reporting giving the reader a good sense of perspective in this matter.

It is frightening to learn the lengths to which American officials and the New York Times go to attack a small site guilty only of saying critical and fair-minded things about American politics.

America is truly entering a new period of witch hunts.

Well, that whole establishment lies about everything from Syria and Iraq to Venezuela and China, so why not a little site too?

Are we reaching a time when saying something true is a crime in America?

The FBI is starting to sound like the Catholic Church hierarchy at the time of Martin Luther.

This just adds to a truly ominous sense about the country and where it is going.

Declining empires are dangerous beasts.
