Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Vanessa Beeley August 8th 2019

The undaunted certitude with which the “international community” seizes the moral high ground before rendering to ruin nations around the world is perceived with weary dismissal in those places unencumbered by western media. “How on Earth,” the people over there ask, “can they still believe the lies?” And well we might ask too.

Vanessa Beeley is an independent journalist who has covered the Western wars against Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Yemen for the better part of the last decade. The Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism finalist is a recipient of the Serena Shim Award for Uncompromising Integrity in Journalism, and her articles appear at many of the most trusted internet news sites; including Mint Press News, where her recent piece, ‘Faux Humanitarian: Irwin Cotler, the White Helmets, and the Whitewashing of an Appalling Agenda‘ serves as excoriation of both the crimes and towering hypocrisy of our times. (And, there’s a Canadian connection!)
