The Media Pushed Propaganda And Failed To Do Their Jobs On Russia, Says Lara Logan

Nick Givas on April 2, 2019

Former CBS News correspondent Lara Logan accused the media of pushing a false narrative on Russia during a Tuesday “Fox and Friends” segment and said they’ve become a propaganda arm of the left.

“This is just indicative of the propaganda, the organized propaganda that’s behind all of this. It seems to me that so many journalists don’t even know that they’re pushing a narrative that was pushed onto them and they did it. A lot of them, it happened so successfully because they didn’t bother to do their jobs. And they didn’t bother to do the most basic journalism,” Logan said.

Logan said the media has become an “organized propaganda” machine that pretends to practice actual journalism.

“What you’re seeing now with more propaganda being pushed and people not standing up and owning their mistakes,” she continued. “To me, that’s a sign that this really is an organized propaganda effort.”

“If you look at the strategic document for Media Matters for America … they pretend that they’re about good journalism but there’s no propaganda organization that’s looking for good journalism. They’re pushing their agenda. And in it, one of their main pillars of their strategy is to make sure that [President] Donald Trump is seen as the most unpopular president in history.”

Logan also said some members of the media have been deceived while other are openly rooting for political parties and partisan agendas.

“They’re being manipulated. They’re being deceived. Some of them are willing, some of them are political operatives themselves. What I think is a mistake to look at this as just human failing,” she said.

“Oh, it just happened because people were upset because [Trump] is so terrible. Well, that in itself is a propaganda talking point for the Progressive political movement and Media Matters for America. And You’ll see it. It’s not me making it up. It comes from them. And what I’m more concerned about is what is the level of organization and funding behind this? And the level of collusion between journalists and propaganda groups that these narratives have been so powerfully enforced?”

  • ministry of propaganda, where have i heard that before. could it have been in the old movie,"1984"? seems to me that when they made it, they damn near had everything right, except the year, and what area controlled the world. should remake it 2019 and have the islimics controlling all.

  • She is saying what everyone with a brain already knows. It was right there to see. If one is an amateur historian and looks to the past, one sees this is not new. It's been happening since Ben Franklin began selling pamphlets. It has simply grown worse, and worst abusers are Democrats (i.e. Fascists and Marxists).

  • Why can't ALL the law enforcement agencies arrest George Soros, and keep him in jail till he dies?

  • Her mentioning Media Matters so many times as the lefts number one source. The same Media Matters set up by Soros and Hillary. The Same Soros whom has several hundred organization that he helped create and funds. The same Soros whom owns positions in little things like facebook and google. Whose holding companies have shares in the major news networks. For some reason I can't understand how anyone could think the news is bias. It must be someone or something I missed
