From today's Irish Indo.
Russian satellite channel has whiff of propaganda - Analysis, Opinion - Independent.ie
Ms Simonyan, the channel's overall boss, only agreed to reply to written questions.The September 11 attacks in New York were an inside job; the South Korean warship torpedoed in March was not sunk by North Korea, but probably by Japan or the US; and the world is run by the secretive Bilderberg Group, who pursue a 'New World Order'. Not the lonely ravings of a conspiracy-minded blogger, but all opinions aired recently on a satellite channel beamed into millions of American homes.
For the week leading to the 9th anniversary of the Sept 11th attacks, Press TV Channel ran a documentary called "Zero" which openly challenges the official account the world has been fed on 9/11. But no discussions allowed on Politics.ie of course."RT's target viewer is a person capable of critical thinking, one who realises that one or two sources of information are not enough to get a full picture," she responded. "It is someone who wants to know the truth, rather than who passively accepts stereotypes."
As readers of Politics.ie would be already be aware, a popular thread called "Was 9/11 a Terrorist Attack?" was in existence for over 3 1/2 years until it was inexplicably deleted.
No it hasn't been moved into Zoo or Off topic discussions. To borrow an infamous line from Iranian President Ahmadinejad, it has been "Wiped from the pages of History".
Why would I be surprised? Any comments I ever made on that thread were regularly described by the mod Cyberianpan as conspiracy theory fruitloopery -This coming from the same mod who recently posted a disgusting thread called "Religion is like a Penis".
So, the tenet of my argument is that the Moderators of Politics.ie are not interested in contributors capable of critical thinking, they are only interested in the opinions of people who passively accept stereotypes.
