It Includes Mainstream U.S. Journalists!!
Back on July 8th, 1889, The Wall Street Journal began publishing as a prime American news source. For over a century, it earned a valid reputation for great journalism. But that changed drastically recently when multi-billionaire individuals and corporations began buying iconic media giants such as...The Wall Street Journal, CNN, NBC/MSNBC, The Washington Post, etc., etc. Thus, such media sources have changed from being important gatherers and dispensers of news to being nothing more and nothing less than well-funded and powerful PROPAGANDA outlets. And perhaps that transition is saddest at The Wall Street.
In 2007 Rupert Murdoch purchased The Wall Street Journal for $5.6 billion after he had already bought-up other major media outlets in the U. S., including prime newspapers as well founding the Fox Television-Radio Network and, of course, Fox News. Murdoch was born in Melbourne, Australia, 89-years-ago. It was in Australia and England where he began his News Empire, before concentrating on the United States.
And now Rupert Murdoch's vast and obscene Media Empire bears his stamp in promoting right-wing propaganda.
The greatest insult Rupert Murdoch has brought to the United States is not Fox News. It is The Wall Street Journal, which even today is the only rival to USA Today when it comes to its audience of about 2.6 million readers. And even today the WSJ continues to have a few honest and dedicated business journalists. But Mr. Murdoch's greatest journalistic crime in the United States, I believe, is using the The Wall Street Journal to elevate extreme propagandists such as Mary Anastasia O'Grady into extremely high-profile propaganda-dispersers while pretending she and others like her are legitimate journalists.
Instead of being a real journalist at the still-powerful Wall Street Journal, Mary O'Grady is a right-wing propagandist. She has been a Editorialist and Columnist at the WSJ since 2005. During that time her prime efforts, as I've noted, have been devoted to sanitizing one particular Latin American dictatorship, the brutal Batista-Mafia dictatorship in Cuba, while incessantly trying to get the United States to destroy Revolutionary Cuba and reclaim dominion over Cuba akin to the days in the 1950s when O'Grady's beloved Mafiosi icons Batista, Luciano, Lansky, and Trafficante Jr. ransacked and brutalized the island with the aid of rich U. S. businessmen, the U. S. government, and the U. S. military. O'Grady, therefore, obviously supports any means that might recapture Cuba...including genocide against Cubans on the island as well as genocide against people in small nations that are Cuban allies. Incessantly O'Grady uses high-profile lies in the WSJ to propagandize her extreme Cuban views. For example, the WIKIPEDIA bio of Mary O'Grady includes this exact sentence: "O'Grady has received criticism for alleged inaccuracies in articles written for the World Street Journal, such as an alleged claim that Fidel Castro developed viruses to share with Islamic fundamentalists; or that Hugo Chavez and Daniel Ortega were providing refuge to Islamic terrorists."
Although she is a well-known anti-Cuban liar and anti-Cuban propagandist, Mary Anastasia O'Grady is unchecked and unencumbered when it comes to using the pages of The Wall Street Journal -- as well as speeches at Think Tanks and on college campuses -- to promote genocidal U. S. practices against everyday masses of Cubans on the island...while, of course, proclaiming that every exile in the U. S. from the overthrown Batista-Mafia regime is a salt-of-the-earth Saint although every Cuban still on the island, including the children, should be subjected to the Trump administration's Title 3/Helms-Burton-administrated genocide against 11.5 million Cubans on the island. FOR EXAMPLE, in these last two DAYS OF MARCH-2020, Mary Anastasia O'Grady could have posted any Editorial in The Wall Street Journal about ANY TOPIC she wanted to propagandize but, of course, she wrote the WSJ Editorial entitled: "CUBA AVOIDS AN HONEST CORONAVIRUS POLICY." The once-respected WSJ is now spreading that latest Mary Anastasia O'Grady Cuban propaganda around the United States on its printed pages and around the world digitally today. It is, of course, Mary Anastasia O'Grady's way of shamefully taking advantage of the Coronavirus pandemic to further inflict her genocidal propaganda against masses of totally innocent Cubans on the island, 11.5 vulnerable people already trying to cope with the pandemic as well as the Trump administration's use of Title 3/Helms-Burton to impose genocide against Cubans on the island.
Now that Mary Anastasia O'Grady has BOTH Title III/Helms-Burton and the Coronavirus pandemic to assault Cubans on the island, I hope SHE is real proud of herself today.
