Lee Fang on the failure of media
Independent journalist Lee Fang is in London for the Censorship Industrial Complex forum. One significant arm of this Complex is media and journalistic collusion with Big Government, Big Tech and Intelligence. Lee has unique insight into this partnership.
In June 2020, at the height of the BLM protests, whilst working at The Intercept, Lee was forced to apologise for his reporting. It was not an op-ed nor mis-reporting he was apologising for. No. He had published an interview with a BLM protestor who had criticisms of the movement. What Lee reported went against the great narrative. And as we have seen time and time again those who prick that fragile narrative face consequences. Lee talks me through what happened.
He was also one of the Twitter Files journalists and tells me what he uncovered at their San Francisco HQ, including how Big Pharma lobbied social media companies to shape vaccine policy content.
All this, the failure of media, FBI Surveillance, Antifa and much more.
Like in other industries, challenging prevailing orthodoxies has a price attached. What is most striking about Lee’s story is that journalists, of all people, have a responsibility to report the truth. Well not when it is inconvenient…
A fascinating conversation with one of the most cutting edge journalists in America.
Thank you Lee,
