Mr Lima, thank you for your informative reply. I hope to see more of your work, it is indeed moving. Honestly, I’ve now lost complete faith in at least Harris’ websites, and there’s enough crap journalism elsewhere that I don’t even feel the need to compare those websites with skilled journalists’ sites, such as Mondoweiss. But their losing readership is the least of my concerns. I’m appalled, disgusted and very distressed that the people involved in “these kind of shows”, as you put it, apparently do not consider the untold harm they potentially and actually do. Countless innocent lives are at risk and at stake. That they…and…in the most sensitive, volatile region/subject/conflict in the entire world….that they have little to no insight whatsoever as to how their whitewashing, twisting, omitting critical objective facts, further oppressing the oppressed, etc can (and does) become a reality on the ground of more hate, violence, abuse, death and even war is what blows my mind right out of this universe…..especially when it comes to those who claim to supposedly be fair and objective investigative journalists! Oh, really??? Unbelievable!
Any attempt by anyone to ‘normalize’ any kind of hate, violence, abuse, war-mongering, racism, etc. etc. etc……..must be called out and dealt with to stop it. Hence my call to Ms Harris. That she did not respond to you, the very author of this article, is even more disturbing and more evidence of all of what you’ve said in both the article and your reply to me. Responding to you, at the very least, would’ve been professional courtesy, and at most would signify a genuine desire of her to understand, care, correct and check herself prior to future releases, whether spoken or written. I am truly sorry she didn’t get back to you, sorry for you and sorry for all the lives she’s put in harm’s way with her poor-quality work.
I suppose an unanswered question remains: how many readers/listeners do not listen or read beyond those shows, do not seek truth enough to compare, research further, seek broad spectrum knowledge & understanding of the subject, etc.? That scares the hell out of me. Too few results in too much ignorance in the general population, and ignorance translates into the greatest WMD there is. Crap journalism only perpetuates that very real danger. Time for all of us to act. Enough!
