Media Roots Radio – Abby Martin’s Stand, PNAC 2.0’s Neocon Attack

Posted on by

Abby Martin and her brother Robbie do the first Media Roots Podcast since Abby made international headlines for off-script remarks opposing Russia’s involvement in Crimea. They discuss the corporate media hijacking the message to further demonize Russia and outline how an influential DC think tank called the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) was directly involved in smearing her and RT as a tool to “rally” the people into the brink of a new Cold War.

All roads lead to a tightly knit young group of hardcore neoconservative players who place themselves in ‘millennial’ publications like the Daily Beast, Daily Banter and Buzzfeed to push insidious neoconservative propaganda that derives from William Kristol’s Foreign Policy Initiative. James Kirchick, a senior fellow at the FPI, also used to be an employee of a US funded ‘white propaganda’ radio network that spreads Pro US military and policy views to adversarial nations in regional languages (i.e.: broadcasting in arabic in Iraq during the US occupation).
