Watch: How ‘The Guardian’ UK went from being a ‘beacon of independent journalism’ to controlled opposition

The UK’s Guardian newspaper was once considered a ‘beacon of independent journalism’.

It was the first mainstream media outlet in the world to publish Wikileaks documents on the Iraq War, as well as the Snowden mass-surveillance revelations. Although an integral part of the system’s mainstream narrative apparatus, the Guardian was nevertheless seen as a ‘maverick’, and could generally be relied upon to publish material exposing government corruption and lies, especially information pertaining to the military industrial complex and intelligence community.

That all changed with COVID and the NATO-Russia conflict in Ukraine. Gone are the exposé’s, the hard questioning, and the open uncensored comments sections, replaced by editorial content which peddles the pro-jab and pro-war lines.

‘How did this happen?’ asks US social commentator Jimmy Dore. With guest investigative journalist Matt Kennard of Declassified UK the pair delve into the Guardian’s capture by the UK Deep State, as the establishment panicked following the Iraq War revelations made by Julian Assange.

  1. The ‘Guardian’ is J****h-owned and managed…
    That should say enough about it, especially the sleazy articles column to the right of it’s pages..!

  2. Not surprised. The Guardian has become a tool of propaganda.
    Lost its soul and digged its own grave.
    Its has become one of the ” merdia” ( french joke on “merde” = shit and media) like so many good european papers going down the drain
    If you want interesting reporting you find many excelllent journalists or specialists on their subjects on youtube etc.
    But anyway, thank you DT for publishing

  3. I used to be a Guardian reader. They have certainly lost a lot of credibility over the past few years in my eyes
