The broadcast highlights the Orwellian nature of U.S. media coverage of the events in the Ukraine. In particular, the disgraceful behavior of The New York Times–the CIA’s #1 propaganda asset–is set forth here. The whitewashing of the Nazi and fascist nature of the government in the Ukraine and casual dismissal of accurate Russian claims as “propaganda” by the “Gray Lady” as the Times is known, has set the tone for the rest of our media to resonate with the dictates of our Ministry of Truth. We wonder about the influence in the Times’ coverage of Serge Schmemann, as well as the possible future role of Islamist and Pan-Turkist elements in the crisis. (The photo at right celebrates the Einsatzgruppe Nachtigall or Nachtigall Battalion, as it is also known. That unit exterminated the Jewish population of Lvov in 1941. A street in the Lvov district was recently re-named in its honor by the “new” Ukrainian government.)
