12/07/10 – Gareth Porter – The Scott Horton Show

by | Dec 7, 2010 | Interviews

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.
