This is a War of Propaganda’: John Pilger on Ukraine and Assange

By South China Morning Post

Australian journalist, author and documentary filmmaker John Pilger has dedicated his life to the pursuit of truth and shining a light on inconvenient facts that often contradict the mainstream media narrative. In this episode of Talking Post, Pilger sits down with SCMP chief news editor Yonden Lhatoo to discuss the war in Ukraine, the West versus China and the plight of jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Here’s what others had to say:

Much respect to John Pilger, a real journalist with conscience

As an Australian when John said it only matters what the crumbling empire says he is right Australia’s foreign policy is America’s foreign policy

I am Australian and we have been blessed with two of the finest journalists in modern history. John Pilger and Julian Assange. What a pity that the bulk of the Australian people and especially the government shows no interest in even talking to or listening to either of them.

Pilger really is a legend. So many people lose it in their older days, disconnect from the reality, cannot keep up with the times, politics, economics, but none of that can be said for him. He truly is one of the great journalists of all times

Seeing such an interview on msm during an unprecedented assault on truth reporting in the media gives one a pivotal measure of hope. Thank you.

Excellent! Documentary titled “The Coming War on China” mentioned here was available on you tube August 2021. I watched it & found myself taking notes. Thanks to both of these journalists.

I have been following John Pilger’s articles since the 70s when I was in UK. I was young , but interested in what was happening in society. His article about the mentally ill patients being discharged and let to fend for themself on the street was a honest, well researched article- I was hooked by this daring, truth seeker who feared not. I have been following him since…My biggest fear is if John die, who is going to, who is brave enough to speak out?

John Pilger is that bright shining Angel of Journalism shedding light on the truth of the darkness of most so called news these days ; thank you that was great. I watched him protest for Julian Assange in Sydney ; amazing

The bad actions of the Media are paramount in allowing and supporting this conflict. The scary part is the amount of people still buying the story.

Bernie Holland
Read John’s book “Freedom Next Time” and you will discover that he is as great an author as he is a journalist. Living in accord with your true self as a journalist may not bring the same comfort and financial security of most politicians, however, it gives you something truly indispensable, that being the freedom not to have to engage in lying and hypocrisy.
