Supporting Greenwald on substack costs only $5/month. Greenwald focuses much of his reporting and commentary on opposing the misuse of political power and the distortion of truth in order to benefit any particular political point of view.
Excerpts from his most recent article, titled, The False and Exaggerated Claims Still Being Spread About the Capitol Riot follow:
“One of the most significant of these falsehoods was the tale — endorsed over and over without any caveats by the media for more than a month — that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was murdered by the pro-Trump mob when they beat him to death with a fire extinguisher…. The problem with this story is that it is false in all respects.”
“It took on such importance for a clear reason: Sicknick’s death was the only example the media had of the pro-Trump mob deliberately killing anyone.”
So the conclusion of Greenwald’s article is that no one died at the hands of the pro-Trump protesters, except a pro-Trump protester said to be crushed by the crowd of her fellow protesters. But the protesters did not deliberately kill anyone.
Reporting like this is necessary when many mainstream outlets are willing to lie to support their political point of view, and many others in the media are afraid to tell the truth, lest they be cancelled or deplatformed.
