“Virtually every time the U.S. fires a missile from a drone and ends the lives of Muslims,” commentator Glenn Greenwald writes,
American media outlets dutifully trumpet in headlines that the dead were “militants” — even though those media outlets literally do not have the slightest idea of who was actually killed. They simply cite always-unnamed “officials” claiming that the dead were “militants.” It’s the most obvious and inexcusable form of rank propaganda: media outlets continuously propagating a vital claim without having the slightest idea if it’s true.
It is depressing to think that this will go on no matter who wins in November.
