On Syria, Russia Today vs. BBC.

February 5th, 2012 22 comments

Below are two reports filed on February 4, 2012 on the conflict within Syria. One by Russia Today and the other by BBC. With President Obama saying “regime change,” I think it is clear if the U.N. resolution was passed, Syria would be attacked by NATO – like what happened recently to Libya. More striking than anything else, these two reports show journalism is not about journalism anymore. Is the BBC the liar? Is Russia Today the liar? I remember hearing the motto, “we report, you decide.” I think for today, it is “we must seek out many sources and then decide.”

Russia Today on Russian-China relations and countering the “West”

March 4th, 2011 4 comments

Russia Today featured Martin Hennecke, an associate director at a financial services firm in Hong Kong, commenting on the Russia-China relationship. This was during the backdrop of Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Xi Jinping, who is expected to inherit Chinese President Hu Jintao’s job in 2012. The Russia Today news anchor said “Russia and China today agreed to help each other to increase their clout in global affairs” of the leaders meeting. While the news was back in March 2010, I think it is still relevant today.

Since the Western media have caught a “revolution” fever, it is interesting to see Norwegian sociologist Johan Galtung countering on Russia Today with the imminent collapse of the “U.S. empire” by 2020 (he previously estimated 2025, but shaved the date off by 5 years after George Bush took office). Democracy Now dubs him the “founder of peace studies” and had this interview with Galtung summer of 2010.

Russia Today on U.S. elites with respect to China: Military Industrial Complex vs. Rest of Industrial Capitalist

January 21st, 2011 7 comments

Russia Today’s Producer has a very thought-provoking take on the U.S.-China relations. It goes something like this. The true division is among the American elites. On one hand, the military industrial complex wants a fearsome and bogeyman China. On the other, “normal” industrial capitalists wanting more business for their constituents. “Human rights”, “intellectual property”, etc are perhaps “hot air.” “Congress attack on China?” Probably that too.
