Abby Martin has generated quite a few headlines recently after condemning the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this despite working for the Russian government funded news channel RT. Image credit: YouTube
Abby, a folk hero in the independent journalism field, has now taken to the soon-to-be history Piers Morgan show to assert her journalistic independence ever further, condemning the mainstream media as corporate establishment hacks and stating the fact that America’s media is 90% owned by only a handful of mega corporations:
Then she continued, stating that US mainstream media self-censors themselves to protect corporate sponsors and the government talking points:
We at The Anti-Media would like to thank Abby for standing up for ethical journalism and for refusing to tow the line of her employers.
Abby’s now former colleague, Liz Wahl, has just resigned on air in protest of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. While we applaud Liz’ efforts, our question is when will mainstream journalists that work for the likes of Fox, MSNBC and CNN start to do the same? When will American establishment journalists shine some light on the abuses of the American empire? We can only hope that day will come soon.
Since you’re here…
…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
