Hold Alt-Media to Account for Getting It Wrong About Armenia & Azerbaijan!
How many remember reading that Azerbaijan was supposedly retreating, the world will recognize “Artsakh” soon, etc.? What about all that fake news about a supposedly “imminent” Russian military intervention in Armenia’s support? None of it happened, it was all fake, all information warfare, and many were manipulated by the Alt-Media Community that they trusted. Those who misled you must be publicly challenged by you, their audience, to explain their fake news campaign.
Armenia just surrendered, exactly as I wrote would happen in my most recent analysis on the topic. The game’s over, Azerbaijan won the war. But now is the time to hold a lot of folks in the Alt-Media Community (AMC) to account who spread fake news these past 7 or so weeks.
We in the AMC fled from the Mainstream Media (MSM) because we distrusted what that institution had become. Yet is the AMC really that much better? How many came across literal propaganda these weeks claiming that Armenia was winning?

It might just be that some were “innocent ideologues carried away with wishful thinking”, while others deliberately deceived you. Either way, information fraud is information fraud, and many of you were defrauded but deserved better.
Am I or my work perfect? Nope, far from it. But I always adjust my analyses based on facts to reflect reality as accurately as I can. I’d never promise everyone that I’ll always be right, that’s impossible, but I can tell you that I’m always sincere with my work.
When I’m wrong, I account for it in forthcoming analyses and adjust my work because I’m an analyst, not a propagandist. But many in the AMC are propagandists under the cover of being “analysts” and/or “journalists” because they aim to deceive.
I don’t care who they are, I saw through their games from the get-go, but I’m concerned for you, those who follow my work. You were lied to or “at best” misled, and you shouldn’t forget who told you what and hold them to account to answer why.
Were they fed false information by “trusted sources”? Or did they just have poor analytical skills and will now promise to learn their lesson? Whatever the answer may be, the fact of the matter is that you nevertheless deserve to have your questions answered by them.
Many of my articles on the subject were deleted after Facebook deplatformed OneWorld last week. But they can still all be read on my Twitter, VK, and Parler accounts or by manually searching for them on the OneWorld site.
Compare and contrast what I wrote compared to many others in the AMC and draw your own conclusions. It’s time that we clean up our AMC and use this as a learning experience. If we don’t do it ourselves, who will, and who will ever trust us again?
Again, getting an analysis wrong is one thing, it happens, but refusing to adjust it in the face of facts is either incompetence or deception. Remember who lied or “at best” misled you about Armenia’s progress in this war, hold them to account, and get answers.
Only you can clean up the AMC and pressure those within it to do better during the next conflict wherever and whenever it might be. Now’s the time to take the initiative, make a difference like each person individually can do, and collectively improve the community!
