Philip Roddis dissects @guardian editorial on #AUKUS 👇 Essential reading for those who believe that 'the Guardian stands for humanity and progressive values (as opposed to catering to markets who want these things in selective and watered down forms)'. steelcityscribblings.uk/wp/2…

'a collection of biased abstract statements with little informative detail' 😆👏 An apt description of so much of what passes for reporting and comment in the Guardian!
A good read. I confess that I rarely read Guardian articles but when I do I find a collection of biased abstract statements with little informative detail where some detail would be nice.

Imagine if western journalists wrote news reports about belligerent US behaviour. And about US's destabilising activities and efforts to coerce and intimidate other countries, contrary to established rules and norms. But that would be real journalism. dumptheguardian.com/australi…

'The deal will deliver nuclear-powered submarines to the Australian navy to promote stability in the Indo-Pacific region which has come under increasing pressure from China.' @BBCNews might as well admit they're reading out press releases on behalf of Western power. #AUKUS

Just watched 10 o'clock @BBCNews coverage of the #AUKUS deal. Why no reference to the fact that unlike the UK and US empire, China does not invade other countries? Your broadcast sounded more like a pro-govt, pro-war propaganda bulletin. Please stop the one-sided reportage.

As mentioned in a media alert earlier this year, the 'mainstream' news media have virtually blanked this 👇 medialens.org/2021/propagand… #PropagandaByOmission
By announcing it will increase its number of nuclear warheads by over 40%, the UK is breaking international law. Help us report the government to the UN: cnduk.org/report-the-uk-to-t…

Of course, the @guardian dutifully carries the same #propaganda headline As ever, 'mainstream' news media happy to regurgitate a press release from state-industrial-military sources.
