There is a 'deafening media silence' on global protests
There is a "deafening" media silence on protests around the world protesting against the elites, according to Webster University Assistant Professor Ralph Schoellhammer.
"They are significant protests – we're talking about 30,000 people in The Netherlands," Prof Schoellhammer said.
Prof Schoellhammer said the media and political campaign across the west against "disinformation" is part of a broader attempt to "undermine" organised protests against the agenda of the elites.
"That the best way to prevent the pushback from large numbers of people is if they don't know that anything is going on," he said.
"Think about the situation of the truckers in Canada when they pulled their bank accounts ... so this is undermining the possibility of those people to organise.
"It's what interest groups, what these players do – they see there is something coming that could be a threat to their power so they try to do something to undermine it."
