Why Is The Western Media Ignoring The New Cold War?
Remember when Russia had a base 90 miles off the U.S. coast in Cuba and the U.S. called it a major threat?
Today there are 30 thousand NATO troops within a downtown block of Russia's border and no discussion in the media.
Maybe this is the U.S. plan on how to walk away from it's worldwide debt obligations before the financial collapse as what happened throughout history as economic powers collapse. (Portugal, Spain, Britain as examples.)

The Western media is not ignoring the new Cold War, they are actively promoting it by demonizing Russia and China at every opportunity. The USA/CIA/Corporate/Fascist ISM state is attempting to consolidate the NWO, new world order, or rule by ISM, specifically Corporatism. Full Sprectrum Dominance spectrums include economics, politics, energy distribution(wars run on energy and earn the first profits), weapons, logistics, communication, transportation, internet, cyber, consolidated Reserve Banks to concentrate economic weapons, etc. Any war, hot or cold, generates very tidy sums for arms manufacturers and marketers(nations that sell weapons). and the USA is the leader of the gang. Are wars just clever marketing or what?

Maybe the fact that Russia has an unfortunate habit of invading it's neighbors and that makes them nervous. I realize that isn't the prevailing thought among the America-haters out there, but history doesn't lie. The last time Russian troops entered eastern Europe they stayed there for 45 years, with the occasional excursion by their tanks (East Germany, 1953; Hungary, 1956; Czechoslovakia 1967) to ensure the Socialist utopia remained in force.

and trashing western democracies.

QUESTION: Why will there never be a coup d’état in Washington?

ANSWER: Because there’s no American embassy there.

1. Attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, most of which were democratically-elected.

2. Attempted to suppress a populist or nationalist movement in 20 countries.

3. Grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries.

4. Dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries.

5. Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders.

In total: Since 1945, the United States has carried out one or more of the above actions, on one or more occasions, in the following 69 countries (more than one-third of the countries of the world):

And of course the inconvenient fact that the US has a habit of invading, bombing, disrupting and changing regimes all around the planet is never discussed in the MSM, no.

gosh, two of our resident Socialists singing the praises of the Oligarch Putin and trashing western democracies. Who would have ever guessed?

Did it ever occur to you that we are real American Patriots trying to bring the attention of the public to the fact that our leadership has sold us out to the Corporate World, Big Banking, and a cabal of wealthy groups that want the NWO. How many common citizens are behind a plan to rule the World. When did I even have a chance to vote for that? Wake up!

I take you have never been to either of these places. I'll give you a tip. Notice what you're doing on this forum. Notice nobody is knocking at your door because of it. The same could not be said if you lived in Russia or China. They do not need to be 'demonized'. They have terrible image problems as it is.

Yes, for the dissonant, reading the truth is both sad and threatening.

No, your delusions of grandeur aren't threatening in the slightest.

Your stupidity and shilling your every third rate dicatator, however, is very sad.

Why Is The Western Media Ignoring The New Cold War?

Too busy pushing for more gun bans?
Too busy pushing excessive PC?
Too busy pushing the leftist agenda?

After all, it's only a 24 hours a day news cycle.

Maybe it's because today's media is all about sensationalism more so than substance. It's why most people hate it.

Yeah, that's true as well. So splitting their time between sensational news stories and pushing their favored leftist agenda then. I'm good with that.

'Man bites dog' makes the front page. 'Dog bites man' is ignored.

The news media is in business to make money. If it doesn't sell they ignore it.

If it were not for the "Leftist" media excusing U.S. imperialism and U.S. Exceptionalism and ranting on about how "Sincere" and "Non-Violent" American Foreign Policy is, the truth would be more easily discerned.

The role of "PC" journalism is about whitewashing.

MSNBC (as an example) is a "Requirement" within American society in order to place a veil over the atrocities committed by America around the globe by constantly apologizing and suggesting that it is a result of "Mistakes" by the "Other" parties and not actual "Policy" which all the media elite secretly and totally agree with.

The main objective of all media is to curtail dissent.

"It's been demonstrated that well within two minutes of watching television, most people enter a hypnotic alpha state bordering on theta. Viewers in this state are no longer able to critically evaluate, discern, or pass judgement from their own moral database on the material being viewed. The information just flows, unimpeded, into their subconscious year in and year out."

The news cycle doesn't just cover one day it covers 24 hours 7 days a week.

That's what 24/7 means.
