Letter: Mitchell Republic taking direction from global corporate media who specialize in communist propaganda

The ploy here was to discredit me in order to protect the establishment narrative.

To the Editor:

This is in response to the headline and the editor’s note regarding my last letter. The headline misleads the readers into believing that my point was that this paper was not communicating in regard to the hew high school project. “Propaganda is failure to communicate,” was the headline I submitted. The failure was in how the communication favors the establishment’s narrative and downplayed, if not completely ignoring, challenges to that narrative.

Second, the editor’s note communicated, “The Mitchell Republic ran notification of the Mitchell Board of Education special meeting online.” I looked for that in the morning online edition of the paper and did not find it. During the early afternoon I looked online and even did a google search and found nothing. What the editor did not communicate was that the notification occurred at around 4 p.m., less than an hour and a half before the start of that important meeting. Is that communication adequate?

The ploy here was to discredit me in order to protect the establishment narrative. Stephen Vines explained why he no longer writes for the South China Morning Post (SCMP), “It was then that the Post became a willing participant in a grotesque propaganda ploy to discredit the detained bookseller Gui Minhai, who was kidnapped and held because of his activities selling books in Hong Kong that embarrassed the Chinese leadership.”

On Feb. 28, this paper informed us that they no longer will be providing Dilbert because, Andrews McMeel Universal canceled the cartoon based on the woke’s Marxist based Critical Race Theory. Andrews McMeal Universal’s website states that they are a global media company and lists SCMP as one of their partners.


So this paper is taking direction from the global corporate media that includes those who specialize in communist propaganda. What we are witnessing here in Mitchell is how the establishment, aided by propaganda from the corporate media, are currently taking advantage of the enormous increases in property valuations on our homes in order to continue funding the establishment’s nearly $80 million high school. Sadly, this paper is helping hide that secret.
