THE SHIFTING SANDS OF HOLLYWOOD UPRISINGS
Yesterday, USA Today reported 128 protesters killed by the Ukrainian government. Others echoed, "at least 100 protesters killed". And now, the Kyiv Post reports at least 42 people killed, mostly by government forces. Should we now rejoice that of the 128 protesters killed yesterday, 86 of them have been resurrected, if not in real life, at least in the make believe world of the Western media?
How can the world, even the public in the West, believe such "media" news? As mentioned before, we must credit their cameramen with powerful shots (of photography), and their journalists, with daring leaps (of hyperbole). If the lies were directed only at the Ukrainian public or the Russians, one can at least excuse such mendacity as part and parcel of war and propaganda.
But when such untruths are trumpeted before their home audiences as facts, something is terribly amiss here. Are their own countrymen now the targets of their lies, and are they, like the Ukrainian and Russian public, also the enemies of the Fifth Estate? Maybe so. How else to mobilize one population to volunteer to fight and grind down another people? Truths won't do. Wonderful, irreplaceable, lies will work wonders, turning ordinary farmers into screaming zealots, students into suicide brigades, and even monks and priests into drummer boys leading lethal armies of men against fellow men.
Move over, Truth, Mr. Lie now has the floor, the podium, and the press. Long live Lie, and may Truth rest in peace!
