Cohen: The West has deceived Russia, and the press is silent about it

37
Leading US media ignore their own professional standards and unfairly cover events relating to Russia, says an article in the article by honorary professor at New York and Princeton University, journalist Stephen Cohen.




American journalists “regularly abuse trust when it comes to Russia; this is evidenced by articles about the “cold war”, Russian “attacks” on democracy, as well as selective use of facts and writing questionable materials, ”the article cites RIA News.

When it comes to Russia, The New York Times often decides what is suitable for the press and what is not, guided by political considerations,
notes Cohen.

At the end of 2017, the Archives of National Security at the American University of George Washington published documents confirming the fact that "the United States and other Western countries promised Moscow not to extend NATO eastward." This, according to the professor, is evidence that the West has deceived Russia.

However, “neither The New York Times, nor The Washington Post, claiming the status of the most important, reliable and irreplaceable political newspapers in the country, did not write a line about the published documents,” the article says.

The author explains this by saying that such materials “fundamentally undermine their most important, all-encompassing legend that the sole responsibility for the new cold war and all the attendant conflicts and dangers lies with Russia.”

The publications "follow the already existing political course in relation to Moscow and are not going to revise it," he adds.

The journalists of The New York Times, along with colleagues from The Washington Post, thus "simply neglect those principles of journalism that they themselves extol," concludes Cohen.

      The article says an honorary professor at New York and Princeton Universities, journalist Stephen Cohen.

      I agree with Professor Cohen, but would it be interesting to know where his article was published?
      So to say, who is on our side?

        In the real ordinary world. Where justice must prevail over the letter of the law, which all sorts of misery write. We live by concepts. Not "according to concepts", but according to concepts.

    “They simply neglect the principles of a journalist who themselves extol”
    With all due respect to S. Cohen, who really looks objectively at what is happening, but what principles of American and British journalism can be discussed? If once recognized, then yes they violate, if we talk about the present day, then the lies, the political situation, the fee have become the main principles pushing aside objectivity, truth, freedom of speech.

          I had no doubt that you would understand correctly what I mean. This applies not only to journalism. Take the same international law: everyone should be guided by it, but not the mattresses that constantly trample it.

    Morality and conscience replaced money, so YOU ​​want the sales magazines to write YOU THE TRUTH. After all, whoever pays, that girl also dances, because they say so with us. The LODGE was elevated to the rank of TRUTH, until the POWER OF MONEY exists, it was and will be, in any country of the WORLD.

    NATO did not expand eastward — the eastern border is Turkey, no one east of Turkey has appeared. FACT! Humpback lit up like a sucker. laughing

    Guys, please give me a link to this agreement, where they promised not to expand to the East, otherwise many of my friends say that they promised nothing and it’s not very convenient for me to defend my point of view in disputes.

    What is the link to you. Here you have the whole contract and conversation with the trap ...

    Scythians

    "Millions are you. We are darkness, and darkness, and darkness.
    Try, fight with us!
    Yes, Scythians - we are! Yes, Asians - we -
    With slanted and greedy eyes!
    For you - centuries, for us - a single hour.
    We are like obedient slaves
    They held a shield between two hostile races -
    Mongols and Europe!
    Century, century your old horn forged
    And drowned out the thunder of an avalanche
    And a wild fairy tale was a failure for you
    And Lisbon and Messina!
    You have looked east for hundreds of years,
    Digging and melting our pearls
    And you, mocking, counted only the term,
    When to train cannon vents!
    Here - the time has come. Wings are beating trouble
    And every day resentment multiplies,
    And the day will come - there will be no trace
    From your Paestums, maybe!
    Oh, the old world! Until you perish,
    While you languish with sweet flour,
    Stop, wise as Oedipus,
    Before the Sphinx with an ancient mystery! ..
    Russia - Sphinx. Rejoicing and mourning
    And bleeding black blood,
    She looks, looks, looks at you,
    And with hatred, and with love! ..
    Yes, to love as much as our blood loves,
    None of you have loved for a long time!
    Forgot you, that in the world there is love,
    Which burns and kills!
    We love everything - and the heat of cold numbers,
    And the gift of divine visions,
    Everything is clear to us - and a sharp Gallic meaning,
    And the gloomy German genius ...
    We remember everything - hell streets of Paris,
    And the Venetian coolness
    Lemon groves are a distant fragrance,
    And Cologne smoky bulks ...
    We love the flesh - both its taste and color,
    And the stuffy, mortal flesh smell ...
    Guilty if we crack your skeleton
    In the heavy, gentle paws?
    We used to get used to the bridle
    Playing horses zealous,
    Breaking horses with heavy sacra
    And pacify the slaves of the obstinate ...
    Come to us! From the horrors of war
    Come into peaceful embrace!
    Before it's too late - the old scabbard sword
    Comrades! We will become - brothers!
    And if not, we have nothing to lose,
    And we are not above treachery!
    Centuries, centuries - you will be cursed
    Sick, later offspring!
    We are wide in the wilds and forests
    Before Europe, prigozhey
    Let's part! We will turn to you
    His Asian mug!
    Go all, go to the Urals!
    We clear the place of battle
    Steel machines, where the integral breathes,
    With the Mongolian wild horde!
    But we ourselves - from now on - are not your shield,
    From now on, we will not join the battle ourselves!
    We'll see how the mortal battle is boiling,
    With your narrow eyes!
    Do not budge when the fierce Hun
    In the pockets of corpses will fumble,
    Burn the city, and drive the herd into the church,
    And fry the meat of white brothers! ..
    For the last time - come to your senses, old world!
    On the fraternal feast of work and peace,
    For the last time - on a bright fraternal feast
    The barbaric lyre is calling! "

    Alexander Blok.

    The West did not deceive Russia, but violated the treaty. Different things after all.
    And not the first time, the "Western partners" are even those bullshit and the Russian government has long known this.
