Antiwar Radio: Gareth Porter

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses the dominant (and false) narrative of MSM coverage of WikiLeaks‘ Cablegate; why a US war with Iran is not justified simply because some Arab rulers (in complete opposition to their citizens) say they are threatened by Iran’s nuclear program; how the New York Times dutifully and predictably spins the news to promote the US government’s agenda; why King Abdullah’s line on “cutting off the head” of the Iranian snake is probably nothing more than sycophantic bluster; the deep concerns of other Gulf state leaders on military action against Iran; and why US-Iran talks are certainly doomed (if they weren’t already) in this environment.
