Cook says that the British newspaper The Guardian has become a mouthpiece for the establishment.
Here is a good example of pure, unadulterated western propaganda from the Guardian, written by one of their most senior journalists, Julian Borger. This could be straight out of of the old Soviet mouth-piece Pravda.
" China and Russia are leading a stealthy and increasingly successful effort at the United Nations to weaken UN efforts to protect human rights around the world, according to diplomats and activists."
The article continues in similar vein, blaming the two official enemies of the west for the increasingly degraded status of human rights at the UN.
As far I can tell, none of the facts in the Guardian's story is untrue. But that does not stop it from being a blatant lie. Providing only a partial account one serving western interests of what is happening to human rights at the UN is not only a distortion of the truth but outright propaganda.
