The UN’s number 2 thinks Americans hold his outfit in contempt because it’s conditioned by the wrong MSM. He confuses cause and effect – Americans hate the UN’s core values of dictator appeasement, corruption and predation on kids, so favor news channels that share their detestation.
The UN deputy secretary-general, an expat Brit, had this to say:
“Much of the public discourse that reaches the U.S. heartland has been largely abandoned to its loudest detractors, such as Rush Limbaugh and Fox News,” Mr. Malloch Brown said in a speech…
There’s some truth in the view that people are influenced by the MSM – its selective reporting of the bad things in Iraq has fed war-weariness.
But that works by suppressing good news. Malloch Brown wants to suppress bad news – in his case about the UN – and that’s impossible in a free society.
The UN can’t hide the facts that it ran the biggest scam in history, that its ‘peacekeepers’ molest kids, that it elects dictatorships to its Human Rights group, and so on.
John Bolton should cut a deal to post this guy to Zimbabwe – it has press control more to his taste so he’d be much happier.
