Did #OpDeSanitize work?
By THOMAS REICH | AUG 22, 2018
Things have changed since I talked about #OpDeSanitize.
It would seem that MSNBC and even CNN (which lied about WMD's to push us into the Iraq War) have covered the Yemen crisis.
MSNBC's Chris Hayes did a segment over the savages - er, I mean, Saudis - bombing a school bus full of children in Yemen with a bomb we sold to them, killing at least 43. This was the first time that MSNBC mentioned Yemen in more than a year.
It appears that even CNN (the cheerleaders for Trump bombing Syria) covered this.
So did #OpDeSanitize actually work?
Yes. Yes it did.
An online movement entirely made up of a few concerned, libertarian-minded citizens was actually able to pressure corporate media into covering war crimes that our government is partaking in.
Had the movement not taken off, it would be very unlikely that the mainstream media would cover this very real humanitarian crisis.
But we the people were actually able to pressure the media into doing their job.
Y'all did it.
I'm so proud of y'all!
