Seymour Hersh Exposes Lies about Syria

On June 15th I moderated a panel sponsored by the Big Apple Coffee Party entitled "Making News - Faking News: How Disinformation Corrupts Democracy." Mark Crispin Miller and Ray McGovern were panelists.

During our talk Ray mentioned a forthcoming article from investigative journalist Seymour Hersh. Hersh was once published in the New York Times and in the New Yorker but that was some years ago. He then went to the London Review of Books but apparently now they reject him too. The German newspaper Die Welt published his reporting on the Syria chemical weapons story today.

No need to wait for a punchline. We were lied to by the Trump administration and by the corporate media. Their actions were very dangerous and risked war between the U.S. and Russia. Please read Seymour Hersh's story here and McGovern's analysis here.
