Hersh Blasts US Mainstream Media for Ignoring Nord Stream Blasts Report

Sputnik – 15.02.2023

WASHINGTON – Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh on Wednesday criticized US mainstream media for not running a word about his investigative piece on the Biden administration’s alleged sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines.

Last week, Hersh on his Substack account published an investigative report describing in detail how US deep-water divers had allegedly planted explosives under Russia’s Nord Stream pipelines. Hersh wrote, based on insider information from a source with direct knowledge of the operational planning, that the explosives were detonated remotely on September 26, 2022, on the order of President Joe Biden.

Known for exposing the mass murder of unarmed civilians by US troops during the Vietnam War and reporting on the US military’s torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib in Iraq, Hersh in an article on Wednesday observed that over the years US administrations from both parties repeatedly tried to obstruct or denigrate what he was writing, labeling him “a known fabricator” and dismissing his stories as “crap.”

Still, the pieces he wrote eventually found their way to mainstream media in the US and around the world, the journalist noted. Hersh worked as a long-time reporter for The New York Times, and The Washington Post ran a long magazine profile of him more than two decades ago.

“Neither paper has run a word at this point about the pipeline story, not even to quote the White House’s denial of my reporting. Similarly, public calls by officials in Russia and China for a full investigation of the pipeline story have been ignored by the US media,” Hersh said.

The White House, Pentagon and State Department deny any US involvement in sabotaging the pipelines.

  1. If S Hersh is such a whizz investigative journalist and crusader for the truth, where the fuck has he been for the last 3 years? Not a word… and now the ‘alternative’ media is fawning over the guy like he’s the second coming or some shit. He is a mouthpiece for an agenda, nothing more. If he’s telling us something, even if it’s the truth (and that’s not a given), there’s a reason why and a game behind it… dude wrote Kissinger’s biography ffs… can we get a bit of calm reflection please?

    • Mike Whitney addresses the agenda question here:

      … Why did Sy Hersh’s source provide him with detailed, top-secret information about the Biden administration’s sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline?

      a. The source is a Kremlin stooge who wanted to subvert the war-effort and inflict serious damage on the United States
      b. The source is an America-hating “Commie” who loathes democracy and freedom
      c. The source is an adrenaline junkie who enjoys putting himself, his family, his career and his freedom at risk.
      d. The source is a concerned American who thought that revealing information about the destruction of Nord Stream would prevent the neocons from leading the country into a catastrophic war with Russia

      If you chose “d” … that is the right answer. No one in their-right-mind would take the risks that Hersh’s source took unless he felt the country was in grave danger. …

      • or the source is a jew who is protected and is just looking to a: stir shit, b: deflect away from where the real order came from or c: Hersh just made the shit up… ?? let’s face it… if Hersh didn’t have the right backing, someone would have offed him ages ago… he’s been ‘revealing’ govt. nefarious doings since the 70’s… and is still very much alive…

        as i said at the time… Nordstream was blown up right in the middle of Rosh Hashanah 2022… ‘the feast of shouting and blasting’…. they could have blown it up whenever they liked… they didn’t… d’you ‘see more’ hersh now???

        • I agree that coming from a Jewish background, up to and including observant, will always color a persons perspective and positions.

          I’m not so sure that that always means their every action, even if designed to, serves to advance Jewish collective interests.

          I’m open to considering how this particular report could possibly do so.

          I’m also cognizant of the phenomena of schisms within the powerful elites. I could imagine that some might balk at the “defeat Russia” goal.

    • Sy has been prodded by Israel to come up with this story. The end game is to trigger a war between Russia and the USA. This is what the demonic psychopaths want and the US govt is controlled by the satanic talmudists. Israel is the reason for the Ukraine war. The Nazis are jews, like in prince: Nasi. and Ashke-nazi.
