Article: What Happened to the Malaysian Airliner? | OpEdNews

Article: What Happened to the Malaysian Airliner? | OpEdNews: Washington's propaganda machine is in such high gear that we are in danger of losing the facts that we do have.

One fact is that the separatists do not have the expensive Buk anti-aircraft missile system or the trained personnel to operate it.

Another fact is that the separatists have no incentive to shoot down an airliner and neither does Russia. Anyone can tell the difference between low-flying attack aircraft and an airliner at 33,000 feet.

The Ukrainians do have Buk anti-aircraft missile systems, and a Buk battery was operational in the region and deployed at a site from which it could have fired a missile at the airliner.

Just as the separatists and the Russian government have no incentive to shoot down an airliner, neither does the Ukrainian government nor, one would think, even the crazed extreme Ukrainian nationalists who have formed militias to take the fight against the separatists that the Ukrainian army is not keen to undertake -- unless there was a plan to frame Russia.

Airline Horror Spurs New Rush to Judgment | OpEdNews

Article: Airline Horror Spurs New Rush to Judgment | OpEdNews: Despite doubts within the U.S. intelligence community, the Obama administration and the mainstream U.S. news media are charging off toward another rush to judgment blaming Ukrainian rebels and the Russian government for the shoot-down of a Malaysia Airlines plane, much as occurred last summer regarding a still-mysterious sarin gas attack in Syria.

In both cases, rather than let independent investigators sort out the facts, President Barack Obama's ever-aggressive State Department and the major U.S. media simply accepted that the designated villains of those two crises -- Bashar al-Assad in Syria and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Ukraine -- were the guilty parties. Yet, some U.S. intelligence analysts dissented from both snap conventional wisdoms.

Article: It was Putin's missile? | OpEdNews

Article: It was Putin's missile? | OpEdNews: Here's the spin war verdict: the current Malaysian Airlines tragedy -- the second in four months -- is "terrorism" perpetrated by "pro-Russian separatists" armed by Russia and Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up.

Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary 'We came, we saw, he died' Clinton said so. Because crazy Samantha 'R2P' Power said so -- thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post.

Because Anglo-American corporate media -- from CNN to Fox (who tried to buy Time Warner, which owns CNN) -- said so. Because the President of the United States (POTUS) said so. And mostly because Kiev had vociferously said so in the first place.

Right off the bat they were all lined up -- the invariably hysterical reams of "experts" of the "US intelligence community" literally foaming at their palatial mouths at "evil" Russia and "evil" Putin; intel "experts" who could not identify a convoy of gleaming white Toyotas crossing the Iraqi desert to take Mosul. And yet they have already sentenced; they don't need to look any further, instantly solving the MH17 riddle.

NBC News Pulls Veteran Reporter from Gaza After Witnessing Israeli Attack on Children - The Intercept

NBC News Pulls Veteran Reporter from Gaza After Witnessing Israeli Attack on Children - The Intercept: Ayman Mohyeldin, the NBC News correspondent who personally witnessed yesterday’s killing by Israel of four Palestinian boys on a Gazan beach and who has received widespread praise for his brave and innovative coverage of the conflict, has been told by NBC executives to leave Gaza immediately. According to an NBC source upset at his treatment, the executives claimed the decision was motivated by “security concerns” as Israel prepares a ground invasion, a claim repeated to me by an NBC executive. But late yesterday, NBC sent another correspondent, Richard Engel, along with an American producer who has never been to Gaza and speaks no Arabic, into Gaza to cover the ongoing Israeli assault (both Mohyeldin and Engel speak Arabic).

Article: STOP Media Lies. You CAN. Here's HOW | OpEdNews

Article: STOP Media Lies. You CAN. Here's HOW | OpEdNews: When: Monday, July 21, 2014

Media lies are responsible for wars, mass killings, and genocide. They frame issues (propaganda) to justify the atrocities being committed on a daily basis. We can STOP this dangerous assault on the truth and save humanity. But we must act quickly.

Media's power comes from its reach -- from ratings, which translates into money. We, as individuals and collectively, feed this cycle. Reduce the reach, lower the ratings, deprive its income. Boycott.
