UK academic silenced by MSM reveals how Western news outlets ‘amplify and rationalize state-sanctioned war and violence’

RT speaks to propaganda scholar Matt Alford, who in April 2019 had a major study of how the mainstream media systematically distorts, misrepresents, and whitewashes Western foreign policy, canned just prior to publication.
As the article was literally about to go to press, the Conversation – which claims to offer “informed commentary and debate on the issues affecting our world” – put his groundbreaking work on hold, at the express request of the outlet’s executive editor.

After some toing and froing, the Conversation finally backed out completely from publishing it at all, telling Matt to take it elsewhere. It was finally published by Grayzone in May.

Now, he discusses his experience in detail with RT.
