One feels for the guys at Medialens. All their work, the anlysis stripping away the layers of lies piled on top of more layers of lies, makes virtually no difference. In fact, it's getting easier for the media to sell the most absurd and untruthful stories and the spectrum of voices allowed narrows and narrows. The media is like a mirror of Britis politics itself, where the clampdown on democracy is almost complete and the real, verifiable, political differences between the two main parties fades into insignificance, even on the purley rhetorical level. |
It's actually worse, far worse, that the two Dave's at Medialens think. It's not only the West's responsibility for smashing the well-functioning Libyan state to pieces, cutting the country in two, the rape of libya it should be called; none of that is addressed properly... there's the almost total lack in the Western media, the BBC/Guardian for example, of the true cause of the Libyan catastrophe, the result of climate breakdown!
This is the greatest single example of the effects of climate breakdown, the huge storm that ravaged Libya. This storm was very unusual indeed for the time of year and the location. Arguably this deadly occurance was the single biggest loss of life linked to climate breakdown anywhere, ever. 20,000 dead. Yet, the link between this massive loss of life and climate breakdown are totally ignored, even more than the West's military attack on Libya.
