An on-air freakout from a progressive media outlet captures the power of Russiagate and Syria dirty war propaganda.
Wow, Aaron! Great piece. Puts events of the last several years into shimmering context, especially calling out the bad actors. Thank you for your steadfastness in following the truth and reporting it out to us.
Great piece, Aaron! I had no idea how related Russiagate is to events in the Middle East. I couldn't believe how utterly unappealing that TYT clip was. Even just aesthetically... it's so ugly. If I were an ardent viewer who hated your guts, I still think I'd be utterly embarrassed to be associated with them. I'm glad that you don't pull punches, but I'm also glad that you don't come off as an insufferable child while you do it. Keep it up.
Super minor grammatical nit: "I have no training in psychology, but one doesn't need to in order to detect a high degree of projection behind Uygur and Kasparian's fabrications." should probably read something like "I have no training in psychology, but I don't need one to detect a high degree of projection behind Uygur and Kasparian's fabrications."
Looking forward to more from you on Syria.
Great article Aaron. The Young Turks lost me in 2016 as I saw them for what they were, a sell out to establishment. Promoting the Russiagate nonsense was unforgivable. Just continue to do the great work you do, it is absolutely imperative, we recognize it and it will stand the test of time. Julie Tyler
I was genuinely offended by TYT’s awful attacks on Aaron. They should be shamed.
Don't sue them. With our filthy, corrupt "justice" system, it would be a waste of time and money. Just continue to expose them for the S**t Lib frauds that they are. You, and Jimmy Dore, are doing a great job. Besides, it's fun watching her and Chunk inexorably slide into irrelevance.
I gave up on TYT once I realized Cenk is just a tool of the establishment but the tantrum over Aaron was beyond the pale. On the one hand I'm disgusted. On the other, I feel pity, you must be in a very dark place and loathe yourself to have such hatred for someone who consistently challenges the narrative and backs up their reporting with facts. I have to wonder if the 5 million subs for TYT's YouTube channel are legit--they're hovering around what, 5k live viewers these days? Seems incongruent. Certainly they are no longer relevant as a voice of progress, only hate and ideology.
To leave it on a good note, glad you're on Substack, Aaron. Keep up the great work.
I believe you have a responsibility to hold TYT accountable here. Sueing them can be used as a vehicle to bring attention to Syria and their ongoing suffering. Maybe it would even help to break the fever that is Russigate. I would be ready to support you along with many others.
Thanks for all your great work.
Thank you Aaron for your and your team’s relentless efforts to expose the bipartisan and decade-long US crimes against Syria.
-- brazen WMD hoax to “justify” the illegal war and occupation of Iraq that resulted in an enormous strategic failure, countless war crimes and close to one million Iraqis dead,
-- the scam of the century – the Obama-Biden-Hillary now five-year long Russia-gate hoax which resulted in current double Cold wars with Russia and China
The continuous war crimes against Syria and the enormous and unprecedented OPCW fabrication scandals have entered the history as menstruous crimes of US government, that is, of its DNC and GOP oligarch cliques.
By now I am convinced that after Syria voluntarily destroyed its chemical weapons under supervision of the US, all (read ALL) subsequent chemical attacks were orchestrated and staged by the US and its close ally Al Qaeda/ISIS. All three immense hoaxes and crimes should be fully exposed and your efforts are truly invaluable. It will not be easy – the full lying team is now back in power – Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, Kamala Harris (a protégé of despicable Hillary), many other
Who will be the first among current and former DNC congresswomen and Senators to fully acknowledge the enormous lies and fabrications? No “unity and healing” before that.
Once again, my immense gratitude for your and your team’s heroic and courageous efforts
On one hand, I wish you would sue TYT because they clearly meant to smear and destroy you. But on the other hand, I think you have to prove harm and that may be impossible since respect for you went even higher since that abhorrent clip of TYT went viral — and the only entity sustaining serious damage ended up being TYT. LOL! Respect.
Hi Aaron! Thx for that hard work. I much appreciate the info on Syria/US machinations. It helped me a lot to understand. We met 2006 in Haiti...so, I know you a little, glad you still do the honorable job of real journalism! Re Ana: Anyone flirting with Albright...*itch par excellence, is waste. Sad.How do such people get in front of a camera, and talk? Wish you every success! Will be watching!
Wow. I'm learning so much that I didn't know. Thank you for educating me.
So refreshing to read this as it reaffirms all that I have come to believe about Russia-gate and the dirty war on Syria. I wish we had leaders like Bashar al-Assad and his wife Asma. Our nation's foreign policy has become so manipulated. Thank you for your excellent journalism. Will share far and wide!
Outstanding journalist. Impeccable reporting. We get real-deal information when Aaron is on the case Thanks for all you do.
You are such a rare treasure in American journalism Thank you!
