A ‘Regime’ Is a Government at Odds With the US Empire

New York (FAIR) – In the aftermath of the assassination attempt against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, an article in the Miami Herald (8/5/18) reported that “a clandestine group formed by Venezuelan military members opposed to the regime of Nicolás Maduro claimed responsibility.” A New York Times op-ed (8/10/18) mused, “No one knows whether the Maduro regime will last decades or days.” AFP (8/12/18) reported […]

The Utility of the RussiaGate Conspiracy

New York (FAIR) – To the shock of many, Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential elections, becoming the 45th president of the United States. Not least shocked were corporate media, and the political establishment more generally; the Princeton Election Consortium confidently predicted an over 99 percent chance of a Clinton victory, while MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow (10/17/16) said it could be a […]

Action Alert: Tell NYT Not to Present Center-Right as ‘Left’

New York (FAIR) – The New York Times, despite its above-the-fray self-image, is one of most overtly ideological institutions on earth. Its primary editorial purpose—as laid out by its own opinion page editor earlier this year (James Bennett: “We are in favor of capitalism”—FAIR.org, 3/1/18)—is to defend the unimpeachable virtues of capitalism. As such, whoever the Times holds up as “the left”—in […]

In Wake of AMLO Victory, US Media Fear Chavismo, Hope for Change

Washington, D.C. (FAIR) – Neoliberal capitalist dogma pervades mainstream media.

Referring to the president-elect by his commonly used acronym, the New York Times’ Azam Ahmed and Paulina Villegas (7/1/18) claimed that one of AMLO’s biggest challenges will be to convince […]

Exonerating the Empire in Venezuela

Caracas (FAIR) – The United States has for years undermined the Venezuelan economy with economic sanctions, but US media coverage of Venezuela’s financial crisis has gone out of its way to obscure this. The intent of the sanctions is clear: to inflict maximum pain on Venezuela so as to encourage the people of the country to overthrow the […]

How Liars in US ‘News’-Media Build on Prior Lies in US ‘News’

New York (SCF) – The means by which the vast majority of Americans are deceived to believe fake ‘news’ that’s based on fake ‘history’, will be described here, so as to enable America to be understood correctly, as a fake ‘democracy’, the perpetual-war-for-perpetual-peace nation that the entire world considers to be by far the most dangerous nation, the biggest […]

MSNBC Ignores Catastrophic US-Backed War in Yemen

New York (FAIR) – For the popular US cable news network MSNBC, the largest humanitarian catastrophe in the world is apparently not worth much attention—even as the US government has played a key role in creating and maintaining that unparalleled crisis. An analysis by FAIR has found that the leading liberal cable network did not run a single segment […]

NYT Laments ‘Forever Wars’ Its Editorials Helped Create

New York (FAIR) – Corporate media have a long history of lamenting wars they themselves helped sell the American public, but it’s rare so many wars and so much hypocrisy are distilled into one editorial. On Monday, the New York Times (10/22/17) lamented the expansion of America’s “forever wars” overseas, without once noting that every war mentioned is one the […]
