Many people understand they are not getting the kind of reporting that they should, the Pulitzer Prize winner says

Not a lot of real journalism is currently happening in America or internationally, veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has said on ‘Direct Impact,’ which is broadcast on RT.
“The class of people, who believe in journalism… doesn’t seem like a class that exists today,” Hersh lamented during the show, which aired on Saturday.
One of the reasons why that happened was because Donald Trump “scared the living hell” out of the liberal media, he told host Rick Sanchez.
The Pulitzer Prize winner recalled that his bombshell report, blaming the Biden administration for blowing up the Nord Stream gas pipelines last fall, was simply ignored by the likes of the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC.
However, the same outlets have been promoting a story alleging that the sabotage was carried out by a pro-Ukrainian group with no connections to the governments in Kiev or Washington.
This narrative “is falling apart,” but the media sticks with it “because the US knows who did it. They know the president [Joe Biden] did it,” Hersh claimed.
