I am not under the illusion that TASS is rooting for the USA. Truth be told, neither am I. I don’t take sides; I seek truth. This typical American binary view of, ‘if you’re not with us, you’re against us’ is BS. I am neutral until the facts nudge me to one side.
TASS did not invent what Glazyev said, they simply reported it.
I really don’t see what difference it makes who publishes a quote, as long as the quote is accurate. If they editorialize, that’s a different matter, but I only posted a quote, and left a source as a reference.
Yes, I TASS a lot. As a matter of fact, I will read anything from anywhere. I read everything I can get my eyeballs on.
Now if you are trying to imply that I only read/rely on TASS/Russian news to get my information, you couldn’t be more wrong.
But not to read TASS and RT and Sputnik and Pravda and Fort Russ etc. means you are not getting the whole story from Russia.
Are you suggesting that this is a better strategy for uncovering the truth?
Is there any mis/disinformation in what I read? Yes, shitloads. But I consider myself discerning enough to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff, and where I cannot, I do some additional research. I sometimes read CNN, Fox, MSNBC, Reuters, CBC, BBC, Ha’aretz, Xinhua, etc etc etc as well. There isn’t much from anywhere that I haven’t read. I also read lots of blogs and independant news websites, not to mention government sources, religious texts, scientific archives… and have been doing so for decades. Does that mean I believe it all? Not by a longshot. But you know what they say, “Know thine enemy.”
So if you are trying to paint me as some sort of communist Russian troll, you’re gonna’ hafta’ do better than that. And if you are trying to discredit the quote by discrediting the publisher, I could give you much better than, ‘well, I never trusted the Russians before 1991’ as far as TASS goes, but like I said, the point is moot. Glazyev said it, he meant it, and if you don’t like it then sticking your fingers in your ears won’t help.
FYI, there is more BS in American MS media than in any other media on Earth, just so you know. But the BS is everywhere, and the ONLY way to know the difference is to take it all in, compare and contrast it, test it all out, and see what remains in the end. Sticking to just CNN, or just FOX, or just American media, or just western media is a trap they want you to fall into. What the hell did they go and invent the internet for if you’re just gonna’ read about the US?
Good luck. You’re going to need it. It’s over for America.
