12/22/10 – Stephen Webster – The Scott Horton Show

by | Dec 22, 2010 | Interviews

Stephen Webster, Senior Editor at RawStory.com, discusses the WikiLeaks-revealed diplomatic cable that shows how the US got troops stationed in Colombia by dodging legislative review; close cooperation between the US embassy and then-President Álvaro Uribe Vélez to escalate the US military presence (that regional rival Venezuela viewed as war preparation); how the mainstream media proves its worthlessness by refusing to properly investigate the gold mine of WikiLeaks revelations; evidence of State Department lobbying on behalf of US corporations and lobbies including the MPAA and Monsanto; and why net neutrality and internet freedom remain under threat (to the delight of China-admirer Joe Lieberman).
