In his introductory remarks, he writes:

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the Truth is truly a  revolutionary act, and that has never been more apparent than in today’s  hyper-partisan climate, where facts no longer hold sway, and one’s  opinion is now only as strong as the crowd that surrounds it. It has  been conditioned over many years into the masses that the way they feel,  is now more important than the facts at hand. Now some may say that is a  good thing, that information is so manipulated today, that all we have  is the way we feel, our gut instincts. But once we realize that our  feelings have long been programmed and manufactured by way of news media  and entertainment, the very feelings we are now being told to trust, we  begin to see the long-term agenda at play — the manufactured consent  of the masses. So it has never been more important to question  everything, to trust in facts, to trust in what we can prove, as we in  the independent media must do better, we must be better, or we will wake  up down the line, and realize that we have become the very thing we  once despised. And no one embodies the journalistic integrity that is  all but absent in MSM today, more so than Eva Bartlett.

Eva is, in my opinion, one of the last surviving investigative journalists, she has made a name for herself as an independent writer and rights activist by traveling to places such as Gaza, Syria, and North Korea, and revealing to the world the stark contrast between want we are told is happening there, and what is actually taking place.”

“Eva Bartlett in North Korea – Going Behind the Media Iron Curtain”–The Taylor Report & 21st Century Wire

21st Century Wire published an interview I had done with Phil Taylor on his Taylor Report, making it into a video using some of my publicly uploaded photos from the DPRK. The 21 Wire post follows…


Eva Bartlett in North Korea

21st Century Wire says…

Intrepid, independent journalist, Eva Bartlett, has recently returned from a fact-finding trip to North Korea, in her words, ” one of the most vilified nations in the world today”. What she saw and recorded during her week-long trip defies all western attempts to portray this proud nation as a nest of iniquity and oppression. 

In the last few days, Bartlett gave an interview to the Taylor Report during which she revealed her valuable insights which take us behind the media iron curtain that separates us from the reality of life in North Korea.

Below is a recent interview/discussion on North Korea with host Edward Rhymes, who wrote:
 
Eva Bartlett fresh from her journey to the DPRK in North Korea, talks about her insights and discusses w/Edward Rhymes the issues facing that nation. Ed and Eva talk about the provocative war games that US have engaged in on right outside North Korea – and North Korea as the simulated enemy in these war games; the anti-North Korean propaganda machine the West’s quashing of North & South Korea’s reunification and the desires of the North Korean people.
 
It is difficult to come away from talking w/Eva without being better informed. She puts it on the line in her travels and she is uncompromisingly honest in her work as an investigative journalist. Join us, here, on #IndependentMediaMonday.

In early August, Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban, Political and Media Adviser to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, spoke with me about how the Western media is stifling Syrian voices, endlessly propagating false allegations against the Syrian government and army.
On the question of the Western media’s reaction whenever the Syrian Arab Army liberates areas from foreign-backed terrorists (the most recent examples include the liberation of Aleppo’s Bani Zaid and Lairamoun industrial districts from the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), Jabhat al-Nusra, Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Ahrar al-Sham, among other terrorist factions), which was met with deafening silence by Western corporate media, Shaaban accused the Western media of “double standards.”

“If the West really wants to end this terrorism, why are they so upset about liberating Bani Zaid in Aleppo, which was responsible for killing thousands of civilians in Aleppo? They should have hailed the Syrian Arab Army that liberated these Syrian citizens from terrorism, and they should have hailed overcoming these terrorist groups that were sending hell into Aleppo.

“There’s no real stand against terrorism,” the Syrian president’s adviser continued. “Not only do they not care about the lives of civilians in Aleppo or Syria, they don’t care about the lives of civilians in Nice or Paris or in the USA. The lives of civilians in Syria is as worthy as the lives of civilians in any European country, and one should be human in this regard.”

 

Comparing the Russian method of battling terrorism in Syria to the Western coalition forces, Shaaban said the Western forces lack the necessary will to fulfill their mission.

“Russia believes that terrorism is a world-wide cancer, and therefore it should be fought truly and drastically in Syria so that it doesn’t get to other countries. But the West doesn’t have this conviction, doesn’t have this will or intention.

Feb 21, 2016, Porkins Policy Radio

For this episode we are joined by activist and freelance journalist Eva Bartlett for an in-depth discussion of the  war in Syria.  Fresh from her fourth trip to the embattled nation, Eva lends us her perspective of what it’s actually like on the ground.  Eva recounts the many places she has visited, and the current living conditions of the Syrian people.  Eva and I discuss the numerous terrorist groups and gangs operating  within Syria, and the disappearance of groups such as the FSA and other “moderate rebel” groups.  Eva also offers us an alternative narrative about the Maddaya starvation story that gripped  news headlines and then vanished.  We discuss the propaganda involved in this story and its similarity to the skewed reporting of the terrorist siege of Yarmouk.
