PBS' And Frontline's Double Standard



PBS' And Frontline's Double Standard

Frontline, a 'news' show of PBS TV,  did a 'biography' of Vladimir Putin, mentioning


1. the 110 oligarchs of Russia (those profiteers who stole the people's assets after Harvard economists were indicted by the Clinton presidency for deliberate destabilization of the Russian economy) but not the 400 richest Americans (each of whom has more than 1.55 billion according to

2. that Putin put a rein on the oligarchs, jailing the most egregious of the thieves, Mikhail Khodorkovsky.   Frontline simultaneously criticized Putin for Russia's oligarchs (who amassed their wealth during the G H W Bush planned destabilization, at the same time Frontline criticized Putin for acting against one of the oligarchs.  (What billionaire in the US has been put in jail?)

3. the past war in Russia but not the ongoing wars of the US, 30 trillions of dollars or more for which have been stolen from the people of the US.

4. Putin's role as a minor officer in the KGB in E. Germany but not G H W Bush's role as head of the CIA

5. The assets of Putin but not that of Gerald Ford, who entered the presidency a man of modest means and left it as a billionaire, thanks to the pharmaceutical industry's 'swine flu vaccines'.

6. That Putin after Medyedev's term finished, began his 3rd term, but not that George Bush was never elected by the people of the US, not in 2000 nor in 2004.

7. secret trials in Russia but not the secret grand juries in the US, not the FISA Court secrecy, nor the trials in which the jurors are under gag rules and the court records sealed

Not mentioning

1. That Russia is among the 88% of the world's countries not involved in government murder, while the US remains one of the 12%, with the state of Texas executing more than many countries.

2. that Russia helps socialist countries while the US government overthrows democratically elected governments and assassinates socialist government leaders for the benefit of loan shark capitalism.

3. that Russia is not waging war against any country, while the handlers of our president are waging war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan and other countries, murdering civilians and soldiers, animals, birds, reptiles, insects and trees.

4. A map of Goldman Sachs influence in the European Union, including in the Ukraine, can be seen as a motivation of socialist countries to take a stand.  See link directly below.

This is written by a lifetime citizen of America,  one who believes that before we point accusing fingers at others, we ourselves should be an honest democracy.  With our unelected 5 Republicans who serve for life on the 'Supreme" Court, with our disproportionate Senate which gives cattle ranchers of Wyoming with its half million residents 72 times the power of citizens of California with its 36 million people, we have never been a democracy.  The pawns of US oligarchs are oligarchs themselves in the US Senate.  We have a rogue agency, the CIA, running amuck turning other countries' forests into muck as it bombs people who are sitting ducks.  My own wish list for Russia includes disinvolving from the fur trade,  deforesting lumber, etc.

Gary Webb And The Movie “Kill The Messenger” Re CIA Distribution Of Drugs


Gary Webb And The Movie “Kill The Messenger” Re CIA Distribution Of Drugs


Gary Webb And The Movie “Kill The Messenger” Re CIA Distribution Of Drugs

The Pulitzer prize winning journalist Gary Webb of the San Jose Mercury News was later disavowed by the newspaper because of tremendous political pressure by the CIA


Gary Webb, Pulitzer prize winning journalist from the San Jose Mercury News and author of the book Dark Alliance: The CIA, The Contras, And The Cocaine Explosion, was crucified for his investigation into the role of the CIA as the creator of the crack cocaine epidemic in the 80’s. The CIA was the prime distributor of cocaine and crack in the inner cities of the US. This accomplished

a. revenue for the black ops of the CIA

b. so many incarcerations that the US became the biggest per capita imprisoner in the world

c. an army of addicts willing to obey their CIA overlords

d. the arming of right wing Central and S Americans in return for the received drugs

e. the deaths of many in the black community

The movie Kill The Messenger has been made about the government pressure to force the newspaper into a false retraction and about the destruction of Gary Webb’s career.

Establishment media connected to the agency led the attack on Webb. The Los Angeles Times assigned 17 reporters to try to discredit Webb, who is now dead (1955-2004). The Washington Post and New York Times dismissed Webb. When Webb was found dead with TWO gunshot wounds to the head, the police termed this a suicide. It is very easy for a murderer to fake a suicide.

Key figures are coming forward

The following 2 paragraphs are from

“Gary Stephen Webb (August 31, 1955 – December 10, 2004) was an American investigative reporter best known for his 1996 Dark Alliance series of articles written for the San Jose Mercury News and later published as a book. In the three-part series, Webb investigated Nicaraguans linked to the CIA-backed Contras who had smuggled cocaine into the U.S. Their smuggled cocaine was distributed as crack cocaine in Los Angeles, with the profits funneled back to the Contras. Webb also alleged that this influx of Nicaraguan-supplied cocaine sparked, and significantly fueled, the widespread crack cocaine epidemic that swept through many U.S. cities during the 1980s. According to Webb, the CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by Contra personnel. Webb charged that the Reagan administration shielded inner-city drug dealers from prosecution in order to raise money for the Contras, especially after Congress passed the Boland Amendment, which prohibited direct Contra funding.

Webb’s reporting generated fierce controversy, and the San Jose Mercury News backed away from the story, effectively ending Webb’s career as a mainstream-media journalist. In 2004 he was found dead from two gunshot wounds to the head, which the coroner’s office judged a suicide. Though he was criticized and shunned by the mainstream journalism community, in 2013 Nick Schou, a journalist writing for the LA Weekly who wrote the book Kill the Messenger, stated that Webb’s reportage was eventually vindicated; since his death, for example, both the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune have defended his “Dark Alliance” series. Esquire wrote that a report from the CIA inspector general “subsequently confirmed the pillars of Webb’s findings.” Geneva Overholser, who served as the ombudsman for The Washington Post, wrote that major media outlets including the Washington Post had “shown more passion for sniffing out the flaws in the Mercury News’s answer than for sniffing out a better answer themselves.”


In 1988, the movie Coverup was narrated by Elizabeth Montgomery, daughter of head of the Screen Actors’ Guild Robert Montgomery, and herself the star of the tv series Bewitched. The movie was about G H W Bush role in cocaine distribution in the inner cities, as well as Operation Guido (GUIDO: Guns in Drugs Out) of Oliver North.

She subsequently died, it was said, of cancer.


Dick Gregory reported that during the Vietnam War, the CIA airline Air America was involved in secreting heroin in the coffins of dead soldiers being returned to America.

J H Hatfield, another author who wrote of politician use of cocaine was found dead in an out of state motel room.
