Décès du dernier journaliste américain digne de ce nom, Robert Parry. Fermeture du Paypal de l'Association France-Palestine. Encore plus de censure antipalestine sur Facebook... La prise de conscience globale progresse, nos maîtres esclavagistes s'affolent, certes, mais les journalistes d'enquête et les sonneurs d'alarme sont en voie de disparition, toujours plus exposés au danger et réprimés, sans avenir, recevant presque aucun soutien du public.

C'est que les seuls qui reçoivent l'appui du public sont généralement ou bien des experts manipulateurs formés et payés pour désinformer, ou bien des grandes gueules en manque d'attention. Le plus difficile est de démêler tout ça en distinguant bien ces différents groupes que sont les journalistes d'enquête, les manipulateurs et les grandes gueules. Bonne chance!
Robert Parry était le fondateur et éditeur en chef de la revue journalistique Consortium News. Il devint célèbre il y a plusieurs années lorsqu'il fut l'un des premiers à exposer le scandale "Iran-Contra", démontrant du même coup le rôle central des néoconservateurs dans cette histoire... qui fait qu'on devrait plutôt l'appeler "Israel-Contra"! Il était toujours l'un des premiers à mettre en évidence, toujours avec preuve à l'appui, le rôle initiateur des néoconservateurs dans les guerres de l'empire au cours des dernières décennies. Il était toujours en mesure de fournir les preuves nécessaires lorsqu'il exposait les liens entre les guerres interventionnistes, le trafic de drogue par la CIA, les crimes des ères Reagan et Bush, etc.
Il faut savoir qu'au cours de la dernière année, Robert Parry a subi de nombreuses attaques violentes de la part de propagandistes anti-russes, l'accusant d'être un vulgaire "agent propagandiste russe", dans le contexte du pseudo-scandale du "Russiagate" que les médias ont sans cesse ressassé tout au long de l'année. Ces accusations très graves, pouvant conduire à des accusations de trahison, ont réellement mis en danger son organisation, lui causant un stress immense qui a fini par lui coûter la vie au terme d'une crise cardiaque massive.
Avant de mourir, il lança un dernier appel à revenir au véritable journalisme et à abandonner la pratique de la "guerre de l'information" (les pauvres sympathisants d' "Infowars" et d'Alex Jones devraient se sentir visés ici par la critique de feu Robert Parry).

Robert Parry’s Legacy and the Future of Consortiumnews



January 28, 2018

Robert Parry, the classic investigative journalist, founder and editor of the Consortium News website, has died.
This is a huge loss for everyone who has kept some skepticism about the propagandistic media onslaught on our conciseness. Parry's writing was always fact based, well grounded and beyond the usual claptrap. The Iran-Contra stroy, Reagan's October surprise and dozens of other political crimes would have been buried had Robert Parry not dug into them.
In his last post on December 31, An Apology and Explanation, he offered these closing words of his long career:
[A]s the New Year dawns – if I could change one thing about America and Western journalism, it would be that we all repudiate “information warfare” in favor of an old-fashioned respect for facts and fairness — and do whatever we can to achieve a truly informed electorate.
Robert's son Nat Parry, who also writes and edits at Consortium News, gives an overview of Robert's work in his obituary. There was hardly any large political scandal in the last 40 years, that Robert Parry had not reported on. He truly made a difference.
May he rest in peace.

A Tribute to Robert Parry: Independent Journalism at Its Best
By Jim Naureckas FAIR 29 January 2018 (via Global Research)
Journalism lost one of its most valuable investigators when Robert Parry died from pancreatic cancer on January 27, at the age of  68. He was the first reporter to reveal Oliver North’s operation in the White House basement (AP, 6/10/1985), and the co-author of the first report on Contra drug-smuggling (AP12/21/1985). He did some of the most important work investigating the 1980 Reagan campaign’s efforts to delay the return of US hostages held in Iran, a scandal known as the October Surprise.

Hollywood’s Dangerous Afghan Illusion: “Charlie Wilson’s War”. (Legacy of the late Robert Parry)
By Robert Parry Global Research, January 29, 2018
Robert Parry, editor and publisher of Consortiumnews.com, passed away on January 27th.
The Global Research team pays tribute to Robert Parry and his unwavering commitment to independent and honest journalism. His legacy will live.
On January 1st, I sent a short note to Robert Parry. Today our thoughts are with Robert Parry and his family. 
Robert Parry was a powerful voice, incisive in his analysis of complex foreign policy issues, with a longstanding commitment to peace and social justice.  
To consult  The Robert Parry Archive of articles posted on GR, click here. 
Below is Robert Parry’s incisive and timely April 2013 article on Hollywood’s slanted interpretation of the Soviet Afghan war.  The US supported “Freedom Fighters” were Al Qaeda. The Afghan Mujahideen were jihadist mercenaries recruited by the CIA. It was all for a good cause: destabilize a progressive secular government, occupy and destroy Afghanistan, undermine the Soviet Union.
“Reagan’s pet “freedom fighters” in Afghanistan as in Nicaragua were tainted by the drug trade as well as by well-documented cases of torture, rape and murder.”
Robert Parry’s Legacy is Truth in Media!  
At this juncture in our history during which independent media is threatened, Robert Parry lives in our hearts and minds.
