Glenn Greenwald has published the article The U.S. Media Yesterday Suffered its Most Humiliating Debacle in Ages: Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened.
Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time. The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout the day. By the end of the day, it was clear that several of the nation’s largest and most influential news outlets had spread an explosive but completely false news story to millions of people, while refusing to provide any explanation of how it happened.
I want to have a record of this story here on my blog. I’ll be able to refer to it when people brag about the veracity of our corporate press or disparage propaganda from other presumably less reliable sources. We have to remain skeptical of everything, including this Glenn Greenwald article. We will probably never know the truth behind many of the things we have grown to believe.
