There’s plenty in this cringe-worthy interview to scoff at — in fact, there’s little in the interview that doesn’t positively, eagerly cry out for ridicule — but the fact that Bartlett invokes a CNN story “from 2007 or 2008” praising Assad destroys any hint of credibility or even journalistic seriousness that might otherwise have been hanging in the air about her. Hell, it destroys it even on her own terms, since she spends much of the interview insisting that nothing the “mainstream / Western / corporate media” says can ever be trusted. A moron of note.
