WikiLeaks, Iran, and the US's Arab Allies: What the Corporate Media Are Not Saying
MrZine / Deepa Kumar

The corporate media are reliable and consistent.  They consistently focus on the sensational, and they reliably take the position of the US government.  So, it should come as no surprise that the recent release of US diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks is being covered with much sound and fury, signifying little.On the sensational and gossip-mongering front we have Gaddafi's Ukrainian nurse, Angela Merkel's "manly" leadership skills, Putin's cozy relationship with Berlusconi, sex crimes charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, etc.  On the mundane lapdog front we have repeated stories touting the administration's line about "national security" and the rationale for why the cables had to be kept hidden from public view, US efforts to bring legal charges against WikiLeaks, questions of whether Hillary Clinton should resign, the internet and its regulation, etc.
