Before you watch this first installment of RT’s The World Tomorrow with Julian Assange, I would like to share with all our readers – globally – what the response was to this show with the following excerpt by one of the largest US [and once esteemed] publications:
“It’s like the Voice of America, only with more money and a zesty anti-American slant. A few correspondents can sound at times like Boris and Natasha of “Rocky & Bullwinkle” fame. Basically, it’s an improbable platform for a man who poses as a radical left-wing whistleblower and free-speech frondeur battling the superpowers that be.” Feel free to read the rest of NYT’s drivel here.
For the savvy TRC readers who know that NYT is a US propaganda rag – we present the first episode of Julian Assange’s “The World Tomorrow” – in hopes of a better one. As for us in US independent and citizen media: please know that the work you do is worth 10 NYTimes, now that it has behaved like a butthurt crybaby for the world to see. It is losing it’s credibility – like Hillary Clinton and the US ’war on information’.
[Coincidentally, RT was one of several outlets on Hillary’s blacklist. I’m doubly pleased to share it.]
Just like banned books – the best and most enlightening information is always banned information. The US media being butthurt is just the bonus. We’ll continue to share the best alternative news sources we can find at TRC because the people deserve better. WE deserve choices, not a corporate cacophony of squawking parrots and their plastic info bimbos.
Take into consideration, Hillary’s words regarding free speech and freedom of assembly during the uprising in the Middle East. That same week, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a major address calling for internet freedom around the world. As Clinton condemned the Egyptian and Iranian governments for arresting and beating protesters, former U.S. Army and CIA officer Ray McGovern was violently ejected from the audience and arrested after he stood up and turned his back in a silent protest of America’s foreign policy.
