Pravda’s Take on Imus
Posted by: Dale Franks on Sunday, April 15, 2007

Well, the Don Imus thing isn't just news here in the US. Although, judging from this column in Pravda, we've all overlooked the true implications of this whole deal.
In a clear sign of its intent to reign in dissident American media personalities, and their growing influence in American culture, US War Leaders this past week launched an unprecedented attack upon one of their most politically 'connected', and legendary, radio hosts named Don Imus after his threats to release information relating to the September 11, 2001 attacks upon that country.

According to European reports of the events surrounding Don Imus that have gripped the United States this past week, it was during an interview with another American media personality, Tim Russert, who is the host of a television programme frequently used by US War Leaders, wherein while decrying the state of care being given to American War wounded stated, "So those bastards want to keep these boys [in reference to US Soldiers] secret? Let's see how they like it if I start talking about their [in reference to US War Leaders] secrets, starting with 9/11."

Unable to attack such a powerful media figure as Don Imus, directly, the US War Leaders, and as we have seen many times before, resorted to a massive media attack against him using as the reason a racial slur against a US woman's basketball team, but which has been pointed out by other media outlets was not by any means a rare occurrence for the legendary radio icon to make.

But, to the US War Leaders, Don Imus represented the most serious threat, to date, of the growing assault against them by America's media personalities threatening to expose the truths behind the events of September 11, 2001 and the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars; and to such an extent that another American media personality, Rosie O'Donnell, has expressed concern that US Military Leaders could actually imprison Mr. Imus.
Man. I just totally missed that.

Old Soviet saying: “There is no truth in Pravda [Russian for ’truth’]. There is no news in Izvestiya [Russian for ’news’—the official newspaper]”.

Actually, the old saying was, "There’s no news in Pravda and no truth in Izvestiya".

1) Notice that they depend on European sources for this. Perhaps they can’t afford to keep reporters in the US?
2) Given the level of accuracy found in Pravda, does anyone know if those remarked allegedly made by Imus and O’Donnell were actually made?
3) When Colbert reads this, he’s going to mad. Imus was more important than him?

You may be right. When I heard the witticism from Russian friends (in Russian) 40 years ago, it was as I quoted it. Harrison Salisbury, fluent in Russian, used the phrase fairly frequently in the form I cited it and said it was from Stalin’s day.

Ugh. Funny as that is — and assuming it’s not a hoax or practical joke — it worries me too.

I was under the impression that Pravda (the brand, anyway, which, together with the journalists, is all that’s left of the Soviet Pravda) had cleaned up its act in the post-Soviet era, and become — if not pro-Western — at least a tolerable news source. Printing stuff like this suggests that they may be working back towards their old style.

Apparently lost upon America’s media personalities is that a government being investigated by the International Red Cross for the torture of an Iranian Diplomat by whipping with steel cables on his feet; a government that would have its soldiers imprison in an Ethiopian torture jail a Swedish teenage girl; a government that would even contemplate the release of one of the World’s most wanted terrorists, Posada Carriles; does not hesitate, for even a second, to crush any, and all, opposition to it.
Swedish girls tortured in Ethiopian jails?

But at least they got one thing right...

To the American people themselves their remains no evidence that they know, much less care, about the dire state of their once Free Nation.
Hard to argue against that point.

About 15 years ago I checked a book out of the library called THE PLOT TO SEIZE THE WHITE HOUSE, by Jules Archer. This is about a General Butler who was approached by Wall Streeters, the Morgans and Dupont and others to help them overthrow the Roosevelt government. Nobody had heard about Butler 15 years ago. Now he’s all over the place.
Now, after 70 years the bastards have succeeded in basically taking over the media; there is permanent war; there’s no money for infrastructure; the US basically has no public transportation; and non of these bandits go to jail.
We’re screwed, folks. Now, we either get used to it or stop lamenting our helplessness. OR we get our morally flabby butts out into the street and kick the sons-of-bitches out and, if necessary, EXECUTE them. Are there any citizens out there with spines?
