Like all US major media scoundrels, longstanding New York Times policy features one-sided pro-Israeli reports, commentaries, and opinions. 

 

Its coverage of Israel's latest Gaza aggression is one of many examples. More on that below.

by Stephen Lendman

 

Cheerled by America's major media scoundrels, war looks increasingly likely. Syria and Iran both are targeted.

America ravages the world one country at a time or in multiples. Post-9/11 alone, millions died. Vast destruction was caused. Human misery caused is incalculable.

  EU Austerity Madness

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

European/American austerity assures a 1% wealth grab at the expense of all others.
