A Blacklisted Film and the New Cold War


Consortium News has the article A Blacklisted Film and the New Cold War.

Special Report: As Congress still swoons over the anti-Kremlin Magnitsky narrative, Western political and media leaders refuse to let their people view a documentary that debunks the fable, reports Robert Parry.

This seems like spy craft right out of the original cold war. It doesn’t matter if you believe either side is lying as long as you don’t believe either side is telling the truth. You also have to believe that your pure mind is being protected for you by prohibitions of seeing a film that your protectors claim is a lie. What’s the point of letting you decide for yourself. It’s not like your right to know is protected by the First Amendment to our Constitution or anything.

The more they try to suppress it, the more likely I am to think they are trying to hide something. The more they call out Russian propaganda, the more likely I am to be suspicious of corporate media propaganda sponsored by our government.

Chances are we will never know the truth, but I refuse to be led into war by deception again.

Perhaps through a groundswell of demand on social media we can insist that our representatives free us up to view this documentary. Do we need a special prosecutor to look into our corrupt Congress?
