Truest statement of the week

Unfortunately, Shaun King didn’t learn very much, after all. When it comes to the powerful denizens of the FBI and the CIA, or federal special prosecutors, or corporate communications outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC and CNN, King is a true believer -- if the target is Trump or Putin. Grand juries that routinely fail to indict killer cops, even when the murders are caught on video, become paragons of justice and virtue in King’s mind when manipulated to indict Russians. Intelligence agencies that tell galactic lies about non-existent Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction,” setting the stage for the extermination of millions, or whose top spies brazenly (and feloniously) lie to Congress about spying on the entirety of the U.S. population, become vectors of truth when they offer “assessments” -- but no proof, whatsoever -- that Russia “meddled” in the U.S. electoral process.

-- Glen Ford, "Shaun King is 'All In' with the FBI and CIA" (BLACK AGENDA REPORT).
