Corrupt Media in the U.S. and U.K. Fuel Endless Wars, Profiteering for War Manufacturers

Today the BBC, and the New York Times, are called out for their bias in news reporting, supporting Apartheid and war crimes. The endless wars, which benefit war manufacturers, of the U.S. and U.K. have resulted in endless wars, killing millions of innocent people -- women, children and elderly -- around the globe.

Today in the news, Palestinian Ambassador to the UK Harsam Zarlos told the BBC, "I refuse to answer the question because I refuse its premise."

Raytheon Missiles in Tucson is among the warmakers benefitting from U.S. government contracts, and manufacturing weapons for Israel. Raytheon formed a partnership with the Israeli defense company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

Raytheon has a manufacturing plant on the Navajo Nation, at the commercial farm, Navajo Agricultural Products Industry, near Shiprock, New Mexico. This factory was one of the issues Indian Country Today censored after the newspaper was sold to new owners in the late 1990s. I was told by the new editors not to even research this as a staff reporter.

Wars, and corporate profiteering from weapons manufacturers and the war machine, are fueled by corrupt media.

Palestinians tear down this smart fence, imprisoning Gaza. Elbit Systems is responsible for the surveillance, and killer drones, killing and imprisoning Palestinian women and children.

The Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems is the same company that built the spy towers on the Tohono O'odham Nation and Arizona border.

Those integrated fixed towers now allow the US Border Patrol, with a long history of murder, rape, assault, kidnapping and drug running, to stalk vulnerable O'odham on their homeland.

Those 11 spy towers on the Tohono O'odham Nation, including one in the heart of O'odham land, which is not along the border, provide live feed of O'odham traditional communities to U.S. Border Patrol agents.

The bias of the news media is clearly shown in the Tucson and Phoenix media's failure to report on the crimes of U.S. Border Patrol agents. They fail to investigate the murder, serial rapes, assaults, drug running, and spotting for the cartels, by agents as documented by a Congressional committee.

The bias is loud and clear as the regional and national media based in Tucson and Phoenix, a short drive away, fail to report on the surveillance towers and U.S. Border Patrol crimes.

The media, including the New York Times, has relied on a mix -- plagiarism, rewrites and phone calls -- to deceive readers into believing the reporters are out covering the news in Indian country. These reporters seldom leave their easy chairs. Some reporters spent their careers deceiving the public with this formula used by stay-at-home rewriters.

As part of the ongoing human rights abuses by the U.S. government, the airspace above the Tohono O'odham Nation is used on a regular basis for dangerous jet combat fighter training for war.

The sonic blasts break plaster in homes and endanger O'odham on the ground. It is another issue that the media fails to cover. The jets fly out of Luke Airforce Base in Phoenix, which trains pilots from the US and other countries. The jet combat trainer is a private company, Airborne Tactical Aviation Company, ATAC, with a history of crashes, including a fatal crash on Fallon Paiute Shoshone land in Nevada.

The United States and the United Nations continue to aid and abet Israel's Apartheid and war crimes.
