Half Of The World Meets, European and American Newsmedia Not Interested

with one comment

Government representatives of more than 3.3 billion people have recently met in Yekaterinburg, Russia, for the first BRIC (Brazil-Russia-India-China) summit (16 June) and the ninth Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO)’s Heads of State summit (15 June).

One for all major Western anglophone news channels, you’d think? Think again.

The only reason I have learned about it is because Iranian President Ahmadinejad attended the SCO summit in the middle of the election crisis. And the only reason why I remembered to mention it is an article in the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, mysteriously available on the web only in Russian.

What is this sorry episode but another example of how the “free world” is victim of its own propaganda, that depicts a subservient, hapless globe whilst in reality there are powerful people seriously discussing how to contain the USA?

  1. Hi, I just came across your blog, and in this post, you make an excellent point.
    I’m currently reading the book Lies my Teacher Told me, and even from that I can see just how much the US hs done to keep its citizens in the dark about our actions overseas.
    They think that if we’re not there we are unable to varify the nightly news for ourselves and must therefore trust our nightly news as our sole source of truth about global matters.
    However, i’ve noticed that on some of the major networks that are rather popular here, most of it is stupid talk show-like programs featuring newscasters/hosts giving us the news and a pannel of so-called experts in a given field proffering their commentary.
