The word disinformation has a very specific definition but is slowly mutating into "information inconvenient to my political side" which is... disinformation about disinformation.

Timothy Snyder, in Salon, is insane. Trump was handed the mother of all Reichstag Fires--COVID--and never came close to seizing emergency powers. The beef is that he failed to exercise authority! Has a major historian ever been blinder to the plainest refutation of his thesis?

I’ll be on there very shortly. It was planned before the pandemic so we had to re-schedule and now it’s happening imminently.

I'm so sorry you went through that. That must have been awful for you. Can you tell me what it's like to have a government call you an enemy of the state for the journalism you do? Did you get through it OK? Can't imagine what that must be like.

Not having journalists turn themselves into arms and servants of politicians, but doing their jobs of keeping a critical distance and reporting adversarially, and telling anyone who calls them a Kremlin agent or a traitor for doing so to fuck off.

In the 1950s, it was journalists who got accused by CIA and FBI agents of being Russia stooges & Kremlin agents. In 2020, it's journalists who lead the way with voicing that accusation against others, as the CIA cheers them. What a perverse corruption of journalism.🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺

When you're trying to live down that time you got exposed as a journalist who collaborates with the CIA, but then Bush/Cheney's CIA & NSA chief comes and endorses your attack on a journalist as a Kremlin asset. This is the union between US journalism and the CIA, here: 👇

In the 1950s, journalists were the targets of McCarthyism. In the 2020s, journalists are the propagators of McCarthyism. 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺

I hope journalists realize: if Biden wins, and you report anything incriminating about his administration - even if you ask critical questions - you're going to get accused of spreading Russian disinformation and helping the Kremlin. That's the toxic template being implemented.

A leading source of "disinformation" online is the sad little boy from Vox , who sits and tweets cable news clips and screenshots all day and calls that "journalism," but because the "disinformation" he peddles is anti-Trump it will never be decried as such by officialdom

I honestly over-estimated how much instinctive distrust their was of these security state agencies. Kind of stunning, and very alarming, to see how much blind faith and even reverence there is in the establishment wings of both parties for the pronouncements of CIA/FBI/NSA, etc.
