1st HOUR: Short local news and events in Kansas.
We again bring to the RFK audience a variety of sources together on the growing international crisis centering around Russia and the U.S. political and media elite. Retired CIA Senior Analyst Ray McGovern posted 30 April an article titled "Kerry's Propaganda War on RT" at Robert Parry's Consortium News which will drive the recent audio clips gleaned from Russia Today and the John Batchelor Show.
Here's an excerpt from McGovern's latest to consider:
Are Kerry and Clinton unable to grasp that the U.S. corporate media’s regurgitation of the manifold and manifestly deceitful justifications for U.S. actions abroad is the main reason why RT and others are gaining on us? Despite awesome advances in communications technology, it remains difficult to make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear, which is often what U.S. policies abroad are, especially to the people of the targeted countries.
It is easy to blame “Russian propaganda” for just about everything, including the public distrust of the endless propaganda pouring forth from Official Washington and its “fawning corporate media.” But people tire of the constant spin from U.S. officials and the one-sided coverage by the U.S. mainstream press. I may be naïve about this, but I think people really do prefer the truth.
Yet, it is in vogue to blame Washington’s loss of credibility on Kremlin propaganda. [End of Excerpt]
