Can more be done by RT, PressTV… to hold the military-industrial-media warmongers to account?

Russian and Iranian English television broadcasters need to issue invitations to Teresa May, Boris Johnson, Niki Haley, Macron, Donald Trump et al, to defend their aggressive stances against Russia, Syria, and Iran,” says candobetter.net’s James Sinnamon. Unbelievable accusations against sovereign states are issuing from the governments of the United States, Australia, the UK and Europe. We are talking about the lines run by US-NATO on the Scripal spy poisonings and the so-called chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, which they have refused in the UN to investigate on the ground. Despite the total implausibility of these stories, the western corporate press, which includes ABC Australia and SBS, promote them uncritically. Yet the purpose of these stories is to provide excuses for war. The only beneficiary of the promotion of war is the military-industrial-media complex. The only thing working against this complex is the alternative media, which happens also to include English programs run by Iran’s Press TV Iran and Russia RT. Why are these programs so popular, especially RT? It is because they appeal to intellectuals because they are so much more complex and nuanced than the frustratingly illogical confabulations that pass for mainstream news in the Anglosphere. Press TV Iran’s The Debate is an especially robust forum.

candobetter.org needs an additional v-server and has been offline or slow due to technical v-server problems

We are sorry to that candobetter.org has been off-line from time to time recently and has experienced massive slow-downs. It was out of the owner's control. We need another v-server in order to insure against this kind of incident. It will cost a few thousand per annum to rent and I am taking this opportunity to prepare our readers and writers to consider supporting candobetter.org's owner and originator, James Sinnamon, in renting a new, supplementary v-server or buying a new machine. James bears all candobetter's production costs alone, without profit. He does this because he realises how important for our society and democracy it is to have a free alternative press. Candobetter.org is published via internet technology which is not aligned with microsoft or any commercial internet provider. The owner constructs the site in linux. These qualities are precautions against arbitrary removal of access, hacking and censorship, which are ever-present threats.

Free Press: Where do you go when Government and the Media don't care?
