Download Episode.

Scott interviews Max Blumenthal about what’s been happening between Paul Mason and The Grayzone. Mason is a British Trotskyist turned Neocon who never stopped identifying with the left. He has built up a reputation in British media as a leftist while building relationships with British intelligence officials. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Mason decided to wage an all-out war on any media establishments that showed even a hint of skepticism towards the pro-NATO narrative of the war. The Grayzone, where Blumenthal works, was able to obtain emails revealing Masons coordinating with British officials as he planned his offensive against the publication. Scott and Blumenthal also discuss MI6’s involvement with Brexit and the situation with Julian Assange.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Paul Mason’s covert intelligence-linked plot to destroy The Grayzone exposed” (Grayzone)

Director and writer of “Killing Gaza,” Max Blumenthal is a senior editor of the Grayzone Project and the author Goliath, Republican Gomorrah and The 51 Day War. Follow him on Twitter @MaxBlumenthal.
