In an interview on Democracy Now, the renowned linguist said that Russian interference in the U.S. elections was minor in comparison to open Israeli interference
The renowned American political dissident, MIT linguist, and author Noam Chomsky came out in criticism of the media’s portrayal of what he considers trivial issues – the Russia investigation, U.S. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and Trump’s cozying up to Russia’s Putin.
Chomsky was interviewed by Amy Goodman on Democracy Now – an independent news program.
He believes that there are more pressing issues to be addressed by the media, such as the root causes of immigration, Trump’s climate policies, and Israeli interference in U.S. elections.
Chomsky said: “First of all, if you’re interested in foreign interference in our elections, whatever the Russians may have done barely counts or weighs in the balance as compared with what another state does, openly, brazenly and with enormous support.”
