Web Summit BANS Grayzone Journalists For Ukraine Truth Telling!

Mainstream journalists don’t care for The Grayzone – most likely because reporters for the independent media outlet frequently call out the stenography and establishment shilling of their mainstream and corporate media colleagues. So it should come as little surprise – although tinged with disappointment – that the Web Summit folks recently invited Max Blumenthal and Aaron Maté to attend an upcoming tech industry conference and then promptly UNINVITED them. And yet in a tweet announcing the rescinded invite, the conference organizers touted their commitment to robust debate. Sure, Jan.

Guest host Aaron Maté ( and his panel of The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and America’s Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the wide range of debate welcome at the Web Summit conference that doesn’t include any voices of dissent against the dominant Western narrative on the Ukraine war.

  1. when the hypocrite liars cant defend their point & use censor, ban. that alone shows how autocratic, fascist tyrants they are, until these bully bastards pay for styfiling speech. tyrant dictatorship will continue

  2. With all the Nazis and other Fascists attending the Summit, it's probably better if you guys steered clear of it. Aaron, you say you can't believe Putin didn't have any other choice, but you can't think of a single option that might have been open to him. The military operation is not illegal, because Putin made damn sure to do things in a way that made it legal, and you have been told this, but you refuse to accept it.

  3. I can't understand how Aaron doesn't understand Russia had to finally intervene after the Russian populations in the republics had been tortured and over 14,000 killed. Russia had tried everything else to stop the slaughter and was begged by the victims to protect them. Please think again about this, Aaron. And more thoroughly.

  4. No other option? Sorry, Aaron. Putin constantly pushed the Minsk Accords which gave the Donbass region limited autonomy WITHIN Ukraine. All the while Ukraine continually shelled Donetsk and Lugansk killing thousands. This war would never have started but we all know the U.S. wasn't going to let an opportunity to weaken Russia slip by. The U.S. had no intention of following the Accords, instead preferring to arm Ukraine to the tune of billions of dollars. If anything, Putin has shown great restraint for eight months, confining the battlezone to the Donbass eliminating nazis in which we should all be thankful. Unfortunately, because of Washington upping the ante, the gloves are coming off.
