I do wish that news sources and "journalists" at large would be more careful [and knowledgeable] as to the info that they spew and assorted sources that regurgitate such falsehoods without questioning or challenging.
Always been my experience that the the mainstream sources are an extension of the most influential establishment and oligarchy - neither feigning to right or left. Perhaps, pretending to attach to particular identity politics - but more of the ruse that they entrust.
Always been my closer observations that most folks from all political persuasions/spectrums are sullied by the presence of all establishment media.
To suggest that this same oligarchical tool of the MSM is in cohoots [or aligns] with traditional leftists or rightist is quite silly and largely uninformed.
The establishment media serves their masters appropriately. What they do quite nicely is to manufacture false divisions among all political spectrums.
When Hanoi was bombed at Christmastime on Kissinger's orders, Le Duc Tho agreed to an armistice. But when he received the Peace Prize together with Kissinger in the autumn of 1973, he refused to accept it, on the grounds that his opposite number had violated the truce.
Two out of the five members of the Norwegian Nobel committee – all now dead – resigned in protest. Kissinger, while accepting the award, did not travel to Norway for the ceremony and later tried in vain to return the prize.
The committee refused to take back the award.
