Anyone who thinks that time will erase Nord Stream will have to think again.
Columbia University hosted a panel discussion in New York. Members of the panel were the editors of the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and Reuters. When activist Jose Vega spoke, it was just like in the 60s.
Vega tore them to shreds.
He opened by calling for Seymour Hersh: Shouldn’t we be talking about Nord Stream – the crime of the century?
My friends and I confronted the executive editors for @nytimes, @washingtonpost, @latimes, @Reuters on their censorship of Seymour Hersh, Uhuru, Julian Assange, Tucker Carlson, Russiagate..Then the Dean of Columbia and security pushed me to the ground and tried to silence me. pic.twitter.com/Tm1u48n5Xu

The panellists on stage were Joe Kahn of The New York Times, Sally Buzbee of The Washington Post, Kevin Merida of The Los Angeles Times, and Alessandra Galloni of Reuters.
Jose Vega: “Is this the lecture hall with Seymour Hirsch? I’m just… I’m looking for the one with Seymour Hirsch because it’s a policy and press hall event. So shouldn’t we be talking about Nordstream since that’s the biggest story of the century? And you guys, I mean, you have the executive editor of The New York Times there who came out with a phoney story to try and block Seymour Hirsch. It’s just kind of funny how that happened, you know? I mean, did you even acknowledge Seymour Hirsch? All of you are executive editors of papers that broke the Pentagon papers, My Lai, Watergate. Are these the same papers or not? I mean, is there anything you’ve gotten right in the last 20 years? Or am I mistaken about that? I mean, it’s just kind of funny because Iraq – wrong, Syria – wrong, Russiagate – really wrong. Okay? I mean, the list goes on and on. So the last thing you could do to try and actually fix your reputation is acknowledge that through leaks we had to find out that Zelensky was going to bomb Moscow on the anniversary of the war. I mean, if you’re so impartial, shouldn’t you at least say that Zelensky was going to bring us on the verge of World War Three?”
While Julian Assange rots in prison, all of you get fat cheques because he’s in jail for doing your job. And you know what, Tucker Carlson ain’t no Seymour Hersh, but he did something you guys are scared to do, speak the truth and actually be critical of the war, which is why he was actually fired from FOX, because you are all cowards. Every single one of you. None of you have actually had any relevance, and you know what? The mainstream press is now dying. nobody’s ever going to listen to you again. You have no credibility with the public, the only people who care about what you have to say are elite assholes who have nothing productive to say anymore, and it’s dying off. So will you at least say something either about Nordstream or Ukraine or the fact that Zelensky brought us to the verge of World War Three and the only reason we knew about that was through leaks?
Go ahead, it’s a free speech event. You guys are the press. Let’s say something here, Mr. Kahn, come on. You’re the executive editor of the New York Times. You know? I’m just trying to get into some good trouble here, man.

Come on, it’s a freedom of speech event. You are the press. Let’s say something here, Mr. Kahn, come on. You are the managing editor of the New York Times. You know? I’m just trying to get into some good trouble here, man.
The elitist editors sat on their hands in shamed silence.
This activist shamed these hacks into silence. What an amazing video!
Such scenes took place at American universities in the 60s. The establishment was put on the defensive especially because of the war in Vietnam. Now the US is at a similar intersection. Twenty years of war in the wider Middle East and now the war has come home, against half of the country’s own population. It didn’t do that in the 60s. Nixon was just a small boy against today’s Gestapo.
That such scenes take place says something about something happening among the Americans and activists have had enough.
Unfortunately for Norway, we have had our name linked to one of the most dramatic events that Washington lies about, but which does not go away. That it was the revealer of My Lai revealer who also revealed the sabotage against Nord Stream is very uncomfortable for Washington. History repeats itself and again it is tWashington in the lead role, together with Norway. That is why the Norwegian media and others say that Hersh is “controversial”, they never mention My Lai.
