    OMG. The media projects information which supports the power elite through bought-and-paid-for talking heads. protesters advocating against powerful interests are beaten and those who dare to tell the truth about state crimes are JAILED. And empires act today outside the rule of international law. I AM SHOCKED!

    When reality mocks itself without inhibition, the satirist is out of a job…

    • No shit.
      The above is a prefect example of why I stopped watching that garbage years ago. What a joke.
      Hey, i am not following this stuff cuz it’s just so tedious and repetitive. Do you guys know to want extent this Empire (CIA) is causing the “unrest” in the region?
      Just going by what I know of history, I am imagining suitcases full of money delivered with all discretion to certain parties, well timed explosions at certain events, certain people going “missing;” you know, the usual spook shit. How involved in all that is the US?

        I would be surprised if US intelligence was not in there stirring the pot, but we likely won’t have proof til the dust settles. That is the problem these days though. How much is controlled, how much is fluid chaos, how much is disinfo, how much is ignorance?

    • Great. Now what the hell am I suppose to do to make money. I ain’t gonna go back to sex work, I hope to promise you that!!

    Considering the richness of Abby’s overall content in the desert of junk news, it’s rather pathetic, and sadly all too typical, that the western media are only allowed to notice her show when she’s critical of Russia.

      Chossudovsky’s got his shit together. That is a good site to monitor, Juan. I went to one of Chossudovsky’s lectures when I was in U of Ottawa. And the man seemed to have encyclopedic knowledge of global affairs.

      • Thank you.
        Times being what they are, it is nearly impossible to figure out wtf is going on. It is key to have a few reliable and possibly less compromised sources than the usual corporate-state (fascist propaganda) passing itself off as “news” these days.

    Perhaps these guys don’t own mirrors?

      Only for hairdressing and there’s so much hairspray involved that their conscience is comfortably numbed.

  5. According to this article, both Abby Marten and Liz Wahl of RT News, have resigned.

      Yeah that’s what it says but I think it should read different. I think when it says follows Abby … blah blah – I think they mean follow her in her criticism of the Russian occupation. Could be wrong though … Abby may have quit?

    • Thurlow Weed | Mar 5, 2014 at 11:15 pm |

      Abby, give me a call on the bat phone. My living room sofa is all yours.

      • Harsh!

        • Thurlow Weed | Mar 6, 2014 at 3:04 am |

            I’ve been spreading the good word about that show, glad it’s seeping out into the popular consciousness

          • Thurlow Weed | Mar 8, 2014 at 2:13 am |

            “I’m glad to see you committing to something.”

    • Bluebird_of_Fastidiousness | Mar 5, 2014 at 11:24 pm |

      I think maybe Wahl is the only one to resign. Both have spoken out. Neither understands the issues at hand.

      • DrDavidKelly | Mar 6, 2014 at 2:04 am |

        True that.

      • Perhaps I misread. I read it earlier after a nap, now it seems to read differently. Either way, US propaganda vs. Russian propaganda. To be honest, I don’t fully understand what’s going on.

        It seems to me that the NSA spying and Snowden going to RU may have opened deep old wounds. Considering the information about financial sanctions and the RU reaction to it. This is just from reading the data provided by snakes that enabled people like “tail gunner” Joe. These leaders need to grow the fuck up and stop dragging the rest of us into their limiting fights.

        • We’re not supposed to understand what is going on. That is the point of propaganda. If they cannot convince you they are the “good guys,” then they can at least confuse the shit outta everybody. I believe it is called the fog of propaganda.
          I am getting used to living with a huge amount of uncertainty. I am looking at this based on what I know about how this Empire has behaved in the past. So naturally, I am assuming the worst kind of heinous fuckery most foul on the part of the the US military empire. You know, the usual.

    I’m always a bit taken back when what I consider to be pretty normal views on subjects are portrayed as radical. I mean 9/11 as an inside job … it’s not that hard to believe, has some pretty good supporting evidence too. Most people I know don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility. But then we get guys like the one in the above panel chat calling Abby a nutcase because she thinks 9/11 is an inside job? She might be wrong – who knows but it’s hardly bizarre thinking.

    But as to the reason for Putin putting in troops? If it’s to give those assholes in the CIA a hard time then I say Putin you da man. Last thing we need is another puppet dictator in the Ukraine.

    I’m gonna miss not watching her

  8. This is one is really fun to watch. It’s got Abby in it, what’s not to like?

  9. James Kirchik begins speaking and it’s one lie after the next right from the get-go. Just look at his scumbag face and you will quite easily see who it is he actually works on behalf of. Abby compares Israel to Nazi Germany and that is an honest observation based on facts. Sycophants such as James make me sick, and laugh at the same time. Such a funny maggot trying to discredit with words such as “propaganda” …oh, the irony!

    Squirm you little b*tch, squirm!
