VIDEO: US journalist Robert Parry says media groupthink on Ukraine most extreme ever

[…] I have to say that in all these years I can’t think of a time when there has been a [media] groupthink as single-minded as the one we’ve seen in the past year or so regarding the Ukraine crisis […] I’ve never seen a moment when so little questioning had occurred about something as important as whether or not there will be a second Cold War, whether there will be a possible nuclear war confrontation between the United States and Russia that might conceivably end all life on the planet […]


Robert Parry (born June 24, 1949) is an American investigative journalist best known for his role in covering the Iran-Contra affair for the Associated Press (AP) and Newsweek, including breaking the Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare (CIA manual provided to the Nicaraguan contras) and the CIA and Contras cocaine trafficking in the US scandal in 1985. He was awarded the George Polk Award for National Reporting in 1984. He has been the editor of Consortium News since 1995. (Wikipedia)
