Robert Parry is the Cuba Gooding Jr. of journalism. [View all]

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.
