Talking Syria & Media Lies, On Sputnik Orbiting the World

While in the UK giving talks on Syria (and the DPRK/North Korea) last week, I was invited to speak on Sputnik Orbiting the World, the program hosted by George & Gayatri Galloway.

The program description:

Speaking truth to power ought to be the duty of journalism but it is not. Speaking the power’s “truth” is the way to get and keep the gig in today’s media – and if you do so, you’ll be richly rewarded with money and flattery. One of our frequent guests, Patrick Cockburn, had a great journalist father, Claud Cockburn, who said that the relationship of the journalist to power should be that of the dog to the lamp-post. Nothing is true, he’d say, until it has been officially denied. Fortunately, every now and then a journalist emerges who goes where few dare, who speaks what few will speak, without fear or favor. One such journalist is Eva Bartlett, so we invited her into the Sputnik studio to speak truth to power.


Eva Bartlett Interview – Gaza, Syria and North Korea: The Truth Behind The Lies

An interview on The Last American Vagabond, November 18.  Please do check out his other videos and support his work! Follow him here:

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.


Talking DPRK/North Korea, With Edward Rhymes

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.
