An incomplete list of lies our news media told

DCblogger's picture

Concealed how the US government looked the other way on Contra cocaine and slimed Gary Webb when he exposed it.

The collection of lies about the Clinton's including but not limited to the Whitewater pseudo-scandal.

Slander of Richard Jewel, thereby permitting Eric Rudolph to escape and go on to murder other people.

Smeared Wan Ho Lee.

The War on Gore and stealing the 2000 election.

Smearing of Gary Condit, which diverted public attention from far more important matters

Cover up of the Saudi role in 9/11.

Lies about Iraq and weapons of mass destruction

Lies about Iran and nuclear weapons.

Lies about events in Ukraine

Perhaps the worst lie of all, the one that could kill the entire planet, is their continuing muddying the waters on global warming.

this is an incomplete list, fill in the rest in the comments. It is good to document as much of this as we can in one place.

Thanks so much for this. Now that the media has sanctimoniously banished Brian Williams from its midst, it's even harder to stomach the posing and posturing, mistakes and distortions, that we are fed 24/7.

Bob Somerby at the Daily Howler did a brilliant series on what Susan Rice really said on those Sunday talk shows concerning Benghazi. I don't particulaly like Rice, but her message, her effectiveness, and ultimately her career were derailed by a phony narrative so universally accepted and repeated by "trusted journalists" that it is now accepted as truth.

Funny thing about Libya -- there was lots of hand-wringing in the media about the rape allegations, but not much about this (from Wikipedia):

From 1977 onward, per capita income in the country rose to more than US $11,000, the fifth-highest in Africa,[58] while the Human Development Index became the highest in Africa and greater than that of Saudi Arabia.[59] This was achieved without borrowing any foreign loans, keeping Libya debt-free.[60] The Great Manmade River was also built to allow free access to fresh water across large parts of the country.[59] In addition, financial support was provided for university scholarships and employment programs.

No debt. Can't have that, now, can we?

I wonder where Libya ranks now?
