Kit Klarenberg: Information War Kicks into High Gear...Pandora, Bellingcat, & Facebook
*Original Air Date: October 9, 2021
Kit Klarenberg discusses the latest ICIJ "Pandora Papers" leak and how they are part of the larger information war between the great powers. The ICIJ is funded by the usual suspects (e.g. Ford Foundation, Open Society) and its leaks primarily target the enemies of Washington and Brussels, rarely if ever revealing dirt on American or Western European officials. Revealingly, back in June of 2021 right before the leaks, the White House held a press conference saying it would place the anti-corruption fight at the center of its foreign policy. Kit also talks about why Russia and China don't really play the same game of leaking info on the West and we cover the designation of Bellingcat, BBC and Radio Liberty journalists as "foreign agents" by Moscow. Finally, we look into the Facebook whistleblower story and why it's likely a false flag operation designed to give Big Tech and Washington greater control over the internet.
