I guess one can get to pick – mainstream media “lies” versus Red Flag lies. I doubt either sources are 100% accurate. I think Red Flag probably contains more of an agenda, hence is less truthful and definitely less balanced. I grew up reading ‘Tribune’ and remember the agenda-driven narrowly-reported information contained in that newspaper. Certainly not the full ‘facts’! It was aimed at converting readers to communism, and telling readers what they wanted to hear – in line with their outdated and discredited ideology. Having said that, most CP members meant well and sincerely wished to help oppressed workers throughout the world. It is just that the reality of communism was vastly different from their heartfelt hopes and beliefs. And the reality was never reported in ‘Tribune’.
