RT’s presenter, Abby Martin, highlights the Israeli Military’s deliberate bombing of a media building housing multiple media offices and targeting of journalists, including the RT office in Gaza, during their recent offensive named ‘Operation Pillar of Cloud,’ their audacity to rationalize it and for making veiled threats to RT’s headquarters in Moscow.
Abby Martin is spot on! Don’t count on US Mainstream Media to inform you of the facts about the ‘Israel-Palestine conflict.’ It is now a well-known fact that observers in US Corporate media express opinions that guarantee them a job, a prestigious position or academic tenure. I call them journalistic prostitutes. Prominent American (Alternative Media) journalist and Radio Talk host Stephen Lendman, likes to call them media scoundrels. They simply want to have the cake and eat it, too!
Most observers know that the U.S. is a country today, whose best ‘ally’ Israel and its numerous Lobbies in America, have a monopoly on blackmail, political, personal and violent intimidation of press, industry, politics and business in pursuit of Israel’s ambitions and objectives.
The Israel Lobby — AIPAC is a hydra that has the reach and the penetration to affect the life and the livelihood of any man or woman in America who earns a living in the political, professional, public or public service sectors.
Simple as that!
We saw it happen not too long ago, to distinguished Americans, to name just a couple: Amb. Charles W. Freeman, Jr. (National Intelligence Council appointment controversy), and the Doyen of the White House Press Corp Helen Thomas. See interview by Paul Jay of The Real News Network. They were so intimidated, they practically disappeared from the public eye.
Now, Abby Martin of RT, has been covering the ‘Israel-Palestine conflict’ on her compelling show ‘Breaking the Set,’ in which she elucidates the bare facts and hard-truths about the conflict and offers opinions that have made her and her network the target of Israeli government’s ridicule and threats.
I think Abby has surprised them and war is a surprise!
