William Rivers Pitt - Audio Link: 'Quit or We'll Kill You'

In the latest 'Truthout Overview' nightly audio, William Rivers Pitt examines in depth the U.S. polcy of ‘Quit or We’ll Kill You…

We do truthout for three reasons: Far too often, the mainstream television news media act as little more than commercial advertisers for their parent companies. This is not journalism, and we desperately need journalism in this day and age. We also do truthout because the mainstream print media, while retaining great credibility, requires an enormous amount of time to sift through properly. Our editors, who read between 10 and 30 newspapers a day, do that for you.

    Binoy Kampmark: Foreseeable Risk: Omicron Makes Its Viral Debut

It just so happens that it’s southern Africa’s turn... More>>


    Binoy Kampmark: Totalitarian Cyber-Creep: Mark Zuckerberg In The Metaverse

    Never leave matters of maturity to the Peter Panners of Silicon Valley. At their most benign, they are easily dismissed as potty and keyboard mad. At their worst, their fantasies assume the noxious, demonic forms that reduce all users of their technology to units of information and flashes of data... More>>




    Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

    Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

    Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

    When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
    He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

    Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
    If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll.
