The Detritus of Journalism
Either high-level discussions aimed at relaxing international tensions are bad for the USA or such discussions run counter to the interests of the US mass media. Our news-mongers speak with one voice in their declaration that talks between the leaders of Russia and the USA are not worthwhile. They are determined to convince the American people that Russia is their enemy. This could be a difficult mission, given the low credibility of the news media. We can’t forget that they beat war drums incessantly and universally in favor of futile and expensive conflicts with Iraq, Libya, Syria and Iran, all the while defending the thuggish conduct of neighbors Israel and Saudi Arabia.
The basis for enmity with Russia seems to be what the media call “meddling” in the 2016.
