Bullshit, propaganda and stuff

Just watching Al Jazeera and it is amazing how so many people who are centre left are suckered into believing the narrative of RT – it’s like a modern form of Pravda yet the self appointed ‘educated van guard’ are unable to see the carefully orchestrated bullshit that is forced fed to them particularly when it comes to Sochi and the whitewash taking place to give it the appearance of a quaint little village where everything is going swimmingly well. The latest episode of ‘Listening Post’ on Al Jazeera ( link ) gives a good insight of Russia how it really is these days particularly when one reflects the issues relating to gay rights and so-called Journalists using shows as a soap box to whip up hysteria about non-existent issues. It is one of the things I most detest about the centre-left these days.
