New York Times Editors Still Outrageously Blame Russia for Kiev's Downing MH17

New York Times Editors Still Outrageously Blame Russia for Kiev's Downing MH17

The Times is a notorious lying machine - suppressing hard truths, proliferating state propaganda, deplorable managed news misinformation and Big Lies.

Neither Russia or Donbass freedom fighters had anything to do with downing MH17. One or more Kiev junta warplanes destroyed it - either with cannon fire or an air-to-air missile.

Evidence available so far suggests no other possibility. Most important is what could Russia or Donbass rebels hope to gain by downing a civilian aircraft unrelated to ongoing conflict, killing everyone on board?

Nothing whatever! Washington, its Western partners and US-installed Kiev fascists benefit greatly if able to blame them for their own criminality. 

Media scoundrels like Times editors serve wealth, power and privileged interests exclusively. Systematically proliferating Big Lies at the expense of hard truths  is longstanding Times policy - a deplorable record of reader betrayal.

Times Russia bashing is irresponsible and intense - proliferating willfully concocted false information, part of its support for Washington's imperial agenda, featuring endless wars of aggression against peaceful nations threatening no one.

On July 23, Times editors headlined "Russia's Empty Gesture on the Downed Malaysian Jet" - irresponsibly bashing Putin's call for initiating an objective independent investigation leading to holding responsible parties accountable, in accordance with Security Council Resolution 2166 mandated proper investigatory requirements not implemented.

The Dutch-led investigation ignores International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards. Since MH17's July 17, 2014 downing, an irresponsible anti-Russia drumbeat followed - led by media scoundrels spreading Big Lies.

Times editors shamelessly act in consort with other likeminded presstitutes instead of publishing hard truths. They pronounced Russia and Donbass freedom fighters guilty by accusation.

They support establishing an illegitimate Western kangaroo tribunal prosecuting their officials. They accused Moscow of trying "to interfere with the inquiry."

They bashed Russian UN envoy Vitaly Churkin responsibly criticizing a US-manipulated Western attempt to establish a tribunal they control - calling their scheme a "grandiose political show" with no legitimacy whatever.

They repeated tired old discredited Big Lies about Russia annexing Crimea and invading Ukraine with troops in unmarked uniforms fighting Ukrainian forces.

"…President Vladimir Putin has baldly denied the obvious fact (sic) that Russian forces are fully engaged in the fighting inside Ukraine," they blustered - despite no one able to find them using sophisticated satellite images, ground intelligence or other means.

Times editors ludicrously claim "(n)obody outside Russia believes" US-directed, funded and armed Ukrainian troops continue waging naked aggression against their own people wanting fundamental freedoms they're denied.

Putin wants Ukraine "remain(ing) a broken mess," they absurdly claimed. Washington bears full responsibility for last year's coup Times editors won't acknowledge.

They support the fantasy of democracy in Kiev - ignoring an illegitimate, overtly Nazi-infested fascist regime waging dirty war on Donbass residents. You can't make this stuff up, or conceal disgraceful NYT propaganda masquerading as real journalism.

Its editors are right about one thing. Relatives of MH17 victims "deserve answers and justice." They're delusional claiming a US-manipulated Western tribunal will deliver fair, unbiased rulings the whole world wants to hear.
