    Reuters Ranter Ignores Madrid’s Media Jackboot! 

    We have noticed the engrained bias of that Reuters in-crowd more than once…

    Reuters Rotters Spread Crimmigrant Sob-Story -Albeit ‘Unverified!’ 

    …both in regard to their inaccurate assertions…

    No, Reuters Rotters! Crimmigrants CAN Be Deported! 

    …and to the unsavoury left intolerance of one of their hacks-in-chief, Luke Baker, Reuters’ Paris Bureau Chief, who claims to know what the rest of us want to have reported.

    ‘The rhetoric that’s coming out of Poland and Hungary is not what anybody wants to hear.’

    To which I responded, of course…

    ’Oh Yes It Is!’


    … so perhaps we mustn’t be surprised at this geezer Antonio Zappulla, who is as queer as a coot …




    …but is only identified (in the article we’re concerned with today) as ‘CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation,’ when he uses a lot of space graciously provided by EUObs –


    – to romp around the globe on the issue of press freedom, throwing his net so widely that it renders his case absurd.

    Including Donald Trump’s scorn for the rabid bias of CNN etc….


    ..with the Chinese Communist Party’s totalitarian suppression of every freedom…


    …is just plain silly.

    But as a former ‘Young European’ you’d think he’d focus on media problems nearest to home, nations under the Brussels aegis, and he does…once!

    Just three weeks ago in Hungary, parliament passed a law that authorises prime minister Viktor Orbán to rule by decree, handing him unprecedented emergency powers of the country, ostensibly until the end of the pandemic. A five-year prison sentence threatens anyone who spreads ‘false information’.


    Does Little Pink Zappi think every other European countries’ similar measures to handle the Chinese Virus are there ‘ostensibly’ till no longer needed?

    Queer that he doesn’t say!

    Nor does he mention the most draconian steps taken anywhere in Europe, those imposed by the leftist regime in Spain.


    Spain’s Left Regime Gags Media – Not A Peep From Pinkos 

    But then the regime in Madrid is bosom-buddies with the Open Borders gang…



    …as we have seen all too often.

    Spain’s Irrepressible Suicide Urge! 

    And they won’t be the targets of a left Europhiliac like Zappi!

    The measures have drawn severe criticism from the European Commission – with 13 EU member states issuing a joint statement expressing deep concern about their potential impact on fundamental rights and freedoms.

    Which measures?

    Not Spain’s Left jackboot, but Hungary’s perfectly proper response!

    Spain’s Left Regime Gags Media – Not A Peep From Pinkos 

    Zoltan Kovacs writes in English as well as anyone…

    Zoltan Kovacs

    …so I am offering his startling exposure of left/liberal indifference to the Spanish government’s Left authoritarianism just as it is…


    …with no need for comment on my part.

    I have added a few pictorials, to avoid a long unbroken column of print!

    Spain is imposing strict controls on information, but where’s the outcry?
    Press is reporting today that the government of Spain will impose controls on information distributed to the public.

    The European Post writes that the country’s security forces have announced their intention to control public information “in order to minimize this critical climate aimed at the government’s action.”



    The government of Spain is led by the Socialist Workers’ Party in coalition with the far-left Unidos Podemos.

    Now, don’t get me wrong.

    I wouldn’t criticize another EU government for taking measures it considers necessary to protect the population during the coronavirus pandemic. The story caught my eye, though, because I’m curious whether we’ll hear an outcry from those others.

    You know the ones.



    When the Hungarian Parliament passed a law to allow for extraordinary measures to fight the coronavirus, including sanctions against spreading false or distorted information that could hinder efforts to protect the population during the pandemic…



    …the press freedom warriors, human rights crusaders and liberal members of the European establishment and media tripped over each other to raise the alarm that press freedom is under threat (again) in Hungary.

    “Hungarian journalists could end up spending several years in jail,” they cried.



    I’m wondering if Reporters Without Borders, Project Syndicate, or German public TV broadcaster ZDF are worried about freedom of the press in Spain.

    Will Reporters Without Borders (aka RSF) fret about “a full-blown information police state” in Spain as it did in Hungary.



    The Soros-funded RSF claimed — falsely — that Hungary’s “new law allows the government to exercise direct control over newsrooms that are not toeing its line in their reporting.”

    Just curious: what impact does RSF think the new rules in Spain will have?

    Soros’s Project Syndicate claimed that Hungary’s “new law endangers the lives of many Hungarians by empowering the government to limit drastically information about the management of the virus.”

    I guess they must be quite concerned about Spain.

    Over the weekend German public media ZDF’s Oliver Welke compared PM Orbán to the gruesome Hannibal Lecter over the rules against scaremongering and the spreading of false information.

    In spite of the clearly harsh measures in the new Spanish rules, I hope ZDF extends a little more respect to Prime Minister Sanchez.


    I’m also wondering about the coalition of international press freedom and journalist organizations that carried out a press freedom mission to Hungary last November and who seemed very, very worried about our new law.

    I’m talking about the International Press Institute, the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom…


    European Centre for Press and Media Freedom – United For Media Freedom

    ….the Committee to Protect Journalists, Article 19, RSF, and the European Federation of Journalists (many of them Soros-funded).

    I’m wondering if they’re booking their flights for an upcoming press freedom mission to Spain.

    I haven’t heard any news on that front yet, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time!

      Reading your blog is a constant learning process.
      For example, while it was always obvious that RSF were Sorosoid, I had no idea the same goes for Project Syndicate. Thanks, and thanks to Mr. Kovacs too.

      I lived in Spain for years. The Left there are still fighting the Civil War.
      I expect the Spanish government, as it says above a coalition of Left and Far Left, are going to use this law against Vox.
      Leftists hate free speech and are always looking for ways to silence non-left voices.
