Robert Parry is the Cuba Gooding Jr. of journalism.

Last edited Mon Jul 21, 2014, 06:45 PM - Edit history (1)

Remember Cuba Gooding Jr.? Of course you do.

He came on big on the scene in Boyz in the Hood. Then he won an Oscar for Jerry McGwire.

And then a few more memorable roles....and then, somewhere between then and now, something happened.

And now he's doing Boat Trip, straight to DVD stinkers and Ben Carson biopics.

Point is, someone can have accolades from long ago and it pretty much means jack shit as it relates to today.

So I don't care that Robert Parry was an esteemed journalist back in the 1980s. He's shown himself to be a complete and utter hack today, willing to repeat total bullshit from Russian state media to pander to a tinfoil hat audience here in the West.

His "journalism" today is hearsay and with an obvious agenda. He's nowhere near respectable and quoting him won't make you sound any more informed on the situation.

8. Completely irresponsible.

From labeling what happened in February as a "coup" without any sort of evidence whatsoever, to grossly distorting the events behind the May 2nd mob violence in Odessa, to this most shameful incident of all where he insists his "sources" can prove the Ukrainian military was behind the shootdown.....he's oblivious to the truth.

But some people want to skate on what he did 30 years ago and then rant indignantly if people call Parry on his bullshit.

He's a bullshit artist.

68. Ex-L.A. Times Writer Apologizes for "Tawdry" Attacks on Gary Webb

Jesse Katz admits that attacking journalist Gary Webb's CIA-cocaine expose ruined Webb's life
By Nick Schou Thursday, May 30 2013

Nine years after investigative reporter Gary Webb committed suicide, Jesse Katz, a former Los Angeles Times reporter who played a leading role in ruining the controversial journalist's career, has publicly apologized — just weeks before shooting begins in Atlanta on Kill the Messenger, a film expected to reinstate Webb's reputation as an award-winning journalist dragged through the mud by disdainful, competing media outlets.

Webb made history, then quickly fell from grace, with his 20,000-word 1996 investigation, "Dark Alliance," in which the San Jose Mercury News reported that crack cocaine was being peddled in L.A.'s black ghettos to fund a CIA-backed proxy war carried out by contra rebels in Nicaragua...

No journalist played a more central role in the effort to obscure the facts Webb reported than former L.A. Times reporter Katz. But on May 22, Katz, who has penned a Los Angeles magazine story hitting newsstands now that resurfaces the Gary Webb episode, essentially apologized, on KPCC-FM 89.3's AirTalk With Larry Mantle.

Katz was discussing "Freeway Rick Is Dreaming" in the July 2013 issue of Los Angeles magazine, in which he profiles Ricky Ross, the notorious crack-cocaine dealer with whom Katz has a long, tortured relationship. In 1994, shortly after Ross got out of prison for coke trafficking, Katz wrote that Ross was the mastermind of America's crack-cocaine epidemic, at his peak pushing half a million rocks a day.

"If there was one outlaw capitalist most responsible for flooding Los Angeles' streets with mass-marketed cocaine, his name was 'Freeway' Rick," Katz's 1994 L.A. Times article claimed. "Ross did more than anyone else to democratize it, boosting volume, slashing prices and spreading disease on a scale never before conceived."

But Webb's 1996 Mercury News series exposed a startling fact: Ross' mentor and chief supplier, who helped him climb to the top of the crack trade, was Nicaraguan exile Oscar Danilo Blandón Reyes. Blandón belonged to one of Nicaragua's most prominent political families and was a major backer of the "contras" — a rebel movement secretly created by the CIA to overthrow the leftist Sandinista rebels...

http://www.laweekly.com/2013-05-30/news/gary-webb-jess-katz-crack/

SOS .. some of the same treatment that Gary Webb received. At least posthumously Gary Webb is getting some belated accolades ..

Keep up the good fight Octafish.

27. No, I've no problem with that.

I've a problem with people who have a problem with Parry doing his job. He reported what he knows about the situation in Ukraine and put it together in the way it makes sense to him.

Parry's track record for professional integrity goes back to 1974. In that time, he's tackled the hardest stories, often alone and usually ahead of the pack.

Calling him "Cuba Gooding Jr." doesn't really have anything to do with that. Nor does it having anything to do with respecting anyone's right to say anything they please.

It's attacking the messenger that is wrong. That is not the sign of democratic debate, it's the sign of the propagandist.

Oh my! Did you see that?

Congress shall make no law


Well, now I'm confused. If what the First Amendment protects are speech, the press, religion, right to assembly, and petition from laws aimed at detracting them (in the context of speech and the press, censorship), that must mean Tommy is Congress!

Ha! Figured him out. That must be it, because that's the only way invoking the First Amendment when someone criticizes a journalist makes any sort of logical sense whatsoever.

Masquerading as a private citizen voicing an opinion on a discussion board with absolutely no apparent power to actually censor or silence anyone.

But ha! We saw his silly charade, and now we know the truth! And good thing that hypothesis totally checks out, too, since if it were total nonsense, then it'd make invoking the First Amendment seem like an awfully silly and desperate attempt at misdirection from a topic we felt uncomfortable with.

24. Good Grief.....did Obama's Poll Numbers go Down or something today?

It's amazing the epithets against fellow DU'ers on this site. It makes me wonder what is going on...that there such hysteria here on DU where long time posters are suddenly going after OTHER long time posters and trying to trash them and their views on the current issues.

I like Obama's personality....I think he tried to do a few things he promised..but, as a Free American Democratic Citizen....I thought that Democratic Underground (member since 2001) was a site that would be free of RW Doctrine and more focused on Dem Party Building for the future.

Must be bad for some out there that this is where they go...to attack Dem Reporters, Dem Members of DU and the "Free Press" which we know isn't free much here in USA anymore...so we go to International News. But, then Snowden revealed how Websites can be manipulated for Post Counts and Views. I've seen it go on here.......with 7,000 views for a Dog Mutilations and Off Stories that one can watch on their local TV "Nightly News" if you want murder and crimes against the innocents..including females, animals and children.

Maybe the views for those Posts are accurate...but, it seems odd a political website would deal with what we all see on our nightly news (if we watchevery night as having to do with National/International Issues ignoring Infrastructure Repair, Right to Clean Water and Food (Fracking and GMO's in our environment and food supply) and yet those distracting, heart rendering posts get Thousands of Views where Political Issues get much less attention on a Political Named Web Site.

Mostly it's folks who never post articles to invite discussion but Snark and Attacks with no discussion but just what most Dems got used to as "Faux News/Limbaugh style tactics.

Let us know when you have some articles you post with REAL DEM NEWS and you SPEND TIME doing posts that come from Historically Acclaimed Books, Reporters or Other Resources that aren't CNN/FAUX/MSNBC (occasionally they are credible)MIC Conservative Radio/Video/ and Radio Free America Propaganda.

"Talking Points" from sites that CAVED TO CORPORATIONS/Gov't Propaganda from MIC /Wall Street ....so long ago that they are quite suspect.

Have at it....the general public is waking up and the poll numbers must be showing that so go at the REAL DEMS here on this site to drive us off... But, if you drive us off here...we are NOT without Resources elsewhere. Because we are Involved/Activist Democrats who Vote in ALL ELECTIONS...Local and not just Presidential...

Carry On..'s....

30. You seem to have quite a superiority complex

going on there. I'm betting that there are plenty of us here who may not agree with you but still are "Involved/Activist Democrats who Vote in ALL ELECTIONS...Local and not just Presidential..."

BTW Isn't your heading snarky?

70. What pays the bills, I suppose.

Sad, since Gooding's certainly not without talent.
