NewSpeek er igen og igen blevet beskyldt for at formidle russisk propaganda. Og for at gå galt i byen med vores afvisning af den sort-hvide fremstilling mestendels skåret over læsten: Rusland-Putin-OND / AGGRESOR versus Ukraine-Zelensky-GOD /FRIHEDSELSKENDE DEMOKRAT(I).
Vores ’anklagere’ skulle måske begynde at grave et spadestik dybere for så vidt angår nyhedsdækningen af krigen i Ukraine?
Her kommer i hvert fald tre citater om krigen i Ukraine, der er klippet fra følgende link:
Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, and Chris Hedges have lent their expertise to the subject of the war in Ukraine with some recent comments that help bring some much-needed clarity to an often confusing and always contentious issue.
“I’ve spent my career working in the mainstream, and I’ve covered probably seven, eight, nine shooting wars; I’ve never seen coverage so utterly consumed by a tsunami of jingoism, and of manipulative jingoism as this one.”
~ John Pilger
“It’s quite interesting that in American discourse, it is almost obligatory to refer to the invasion as the ‘unprovoked invasion of Ukraine’. Look it up on Google, you will find hundreds of thousands of hits. Of course, it was provoked. Otherwise they wouldn’t refer to it all the time as an unprovoked invasion.”
~ Noam Chomsky
“At no time, including the Cuban missile crisis, have we stood closer to the precipice of nuclear war.”
~ Chris Hedges
