Everywhere: Where Is the Hard News?
more media broadcast, cable, and internet than ever
before, you'd think information would be at our fingertips. You'd
think that would give us a lot of choices, right? If we wanted information
about, say, the U.S. role in Yemen, or the small wars that the US
military's AFRICOM branch is fighting in Africa, you'd think it
would be easy to find, wouldn't you?
CNN is wall-to-wall: "Trump is a monster!" Meanwhile,
Fox News Channel provides brief moments of hard news but then quickly
sinks to the level of its biases.
And the New York Times obscures truly vital facts and makes
reading it like pulling teeth.
But, fortunately for all of us, our News Editor at Antiwar.com,
Jason Ditz, follows the news relentlessly and distills the deeper
story from many, disparate sources. So that hard-to-understand New
York Times piece? Read Jason instead; he makes the complex and
confusing understandable, and in straightforward language.
AND we need your help. We run on a shoestring budget, a mere fraction
of what is spent by any mainstream media (MSM) outlet. We don't
have their resources, only the support of our readers. And yet,
we offer you the kind of news and analysis you can't get from the
MSM. If you want to understand foreign policy, you need us and
we need YOU!
