Information Warfare

I read Russia Today, and so should you

Several years ago, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, complained to Congress that the U.S. was losing the information war to Russia Today (RT), as well as other English-language news sources owned by foreign governments. Arguably, however, what truly bothered Ms. Clinton wasn’t the idea that the U.S. has been […]

Is tolerance of dishonesty the fundamental problem in our culture?

NBC-TV’s star news-anchor (America’s most popular) Brian Williams got caught repeatedly lying and fabricating his fake-‘courageous’ personal involvement in news stories that he had ‘reported.’ At LinkedIn, Rob Wyse headlined recently, “Brian Williams Essentially Lied on His Resume, Or Exaggerated The Truth,” and he noted there: “Whether you call it a lie, or an exaggeration — […]

German sociologists on Crimea’s choice

A few days ago an interesting study, “The Socio-Political Sentiments in Crimea,” was released by the Ukrainian branch of GfK, the well-known German social research organization, as part of the Free Crimea initiative. Intriguingly, the primary objectives of this project, launched with the support of the governmental Canada Fund for […]

“Enigmatic Russia” And Its Detractors

Periodically, some have engaged in what can be best described as “PoliSport”.

He has published a book, Gekaufte Journalisten […]

Justice for the MH17 victims is what we all need

After keeping a meaningful two-month pause in covering the course of investigation of the MH17 tragedy, the international press has suddenly broke into another wave of baseless accusations against “pro-Russia separatists”, triggered by a “secret report” made by the BND (Bundesnachrichtendienst, German foreign intelligence) for the Bundestag Control Committee on […]

Springtime for Russophobia

When the banksters who run America set their sights on the newest designated enemy of democracy, without fail the assault is preceded by information operations to convince a clueless public of the target state’s burning hatred for “freedom.” Momentarily torn away from corporate entertainment spectacle, enlightened citizen-consumers will be fed […]

What would real proof look like?

Once again the headlines shout that Russia has invaded Ukraine. Once again NATO offers blurry satellite shots from a commercial service for evidence. Here are June’s “invasion” satellite photos. This month’s “invasion” satellite photos are here. Again from a commercial source, Digital Globe. Photo 1: some “Russian” SPGs in Ukraine (everybody uses “Russian” […]
