Read the full transcript below.
As mentioned in yesterday’s newsletter, we produced an hour-long segment dissecting the battery of lies spewed by Joe Scarborough and Claire McCaskill in a two-minute NBC report on the prosecution of Julian Assange. We realize that not every subscriber wants or has the time to watch an hour-long segment, so as always, we’ve produced a full transcript of the video for those who prefer to read the report.
Glenn Greenwald: Hi, everyone, this is Glenn Greenwald, and I am excited about our new episode of System Update here on our home at Rumble, and I say I'm excited because I feel what we're about to do is quite important. What I want to do is show you how readily and casually and aggressively and clearly corporate media outlets disseminate outright lies.
And I wanted to use a two minute clip from Morning Joe involving the host of that show, Joe Scarborough, and the former two-term Democratic senator from Missouri, Claire McCaskill, and break down this clip to show you why it is that I so often say that fake news and disinformation comes not from people on Facebook or teenagers on 4chan or whatever else is blamed for the dissemination of fake news and disinformation.
