NBC Reporter Tells Truth About War – Gets IMMEDIATELY FIRED!

During the first Gulf War journalist Jon Alpert evaded his government controllers and censors to smuggle evidence of civilian casualties out of Iraq to show the American public the truth about the war’s devastating consequences. His higher-ups at NBC News had different ideas, however, and fired him rather than show the shocking footage. And then CBS News fired a producer who tried to bring Alpert on. It’s an appalling story of self-censorship in favor of war propaganda in the US news media.

Jimmy and Hard Lens Media’s Kit Cabello discuss the levers used by the corporate-military-government establishment to prevent the truth about war from escaping.

  1. I really don't mind that aspect of it, it's reality civilians die in war, it sucks but that's life. I get tired of the lefties causing us to lose wars with their defeatists attitude and then suddenly after being anti war since Vietnam they want to go to WW3 with Russia? the country we have hours of movies and TV shows of American lefties simping for? But now because they're not commies (allegedly) and don't embrace homosexuals we need to nuke Russia.

    They didn't even care this much when Afghanistan was invaded by the Soviets.

    It's beyond nuts I mean figure this out:

    Pro gay western commie loving atheists are backing a country who's literally got Nazi battalions who kicked out the pro Russia communist parties in 2014 vs the ex KGB agent, swears he's orthodox Christian, Putin led anti gay Russia who is backed by the atheists commie Chinese.

    Make sense of any of those alliances other than proximity.

    You can't

    This war on all levels is the most confusing battle I've ever heard other than maybe those weird alliances back in the Late Middle Ages between Eastern Europe kingdoms and the Ottomans. Where Christians are betraying Christians and teaming with Muslims or vice versa.

    I think the right is, for once, correct to be a bit dovish about this one because while we'd love to fuck up Russia and China it's very confusing about who "the good guys" are since no one made an alliance that makes sense.

  2. The Broadcasting Brothels, Broadcast whatever their paymasters want them to . Right across what they try to convince us is the " free " world! the usual suspects which is about a dozen or so war mongering countries . There`s no doubt who`s side these whores are on

  3. I'm just citing someone from the internet. It is truth, according to my (quite limited) knowledge of history. Fill free to validate it and report any mistakes.

  4. Almost as bad as the BBC. Honest reporters had to leave because they felt the pressure of censorship by the BBC. Only supine, obedient ones left to support the British government.

  5. During the second Iraq war the newsrooms were virtually staffed by military and intel people. We’ll never know the full extent of the manipulation and corruption that took place back then.

  6. "You sir sounds like a white supremisist". I don't think Jimmy was joking. He realised that guest still went into Iraq war (#2) knowing the facts, just to get paid, did not matter if he had to kill more innocent civilians.

  7. If I can't vote republican or democrat…who do I vote for? I mean, I would vote for Tulsi if she got the mod, but I don't know who to vote for outside of the two old white guys

  8. Brian Williams told the truth about how he was a Helicopter Door Gunner in Iraq and Afghanistan. He had over 10K kills and saved millions of lives. Then he arose from his slumber and was in bed, in his jammies. It was all a dream.

  9. You have NEVER been at peace with the world.,in their whole years of existance…You started off with genocide of local natives and have NEVER stopped….and the best bit is …your country is left unscathed after your onslaught…Your biggest expenditure is on weopons,yet who is invading you???WHY///

  10. "there's no such thing as a bloodless war" This is something liberals need to wrap their head around, as they shriek about russia bombing something, it's a fucking war. Laws of war are stupid bullshit that are never enforced and have only ever been used as an excuse either to start military action or purge a nation of leaders we don't like or both. That's not to say warcrimes necessarily happen in every single war ever, it's true that a nation can voluntarily adhere to the laws of war, but the moment it would put them at a strategic or tactical disadvantage to do so, they go out the window 100% of the time. We have done far worse in Iraq and afghanistan and syria and libya and vietnam and korea than Russia has done in the ukraine war and newsflash, we haven't just been killing 100% evil terrorists that want to kill women for showing an eyelash.

    Russia's war in ukraine is horrible BECAUSE IT'S A WAR. It was a bad thing to do BECAUSE IT'S A WAR. Not because Russia is uniquely evil and they're doing it for an "impure" reason. Our wars are just as bad, if not worse since the USA really has no filter on what is acceptable, you can gun down hundreds of FRIENDLY civilian refugees for fun and you'll never face a punishment if you're in the US military. Hell, you won't even have to apologise. But this kind of shit is what happens in war, it's why we shouldn't be starting fucking wars.

  11. What truly repulses me as well, is calling war Theatre. Sure pals. I remember them showing the plane hits like a video game. I used to email George Bush Jr every day. The operator got to know me. HA!! Of course I didn't matter but it made me feel better. Vipers! Watch the Ken Burns documentary on Vietnam. If people truly saw the horrors of war would they be so complacent? I certainly hope not, but we've been desensitized. Not me, but millions of others.
