The Fine Journalistic Art of Innuendo
Corpus Delicti Has No Place in the Mainstream
Guardian: Crown Prince’s wings clipped as Khashoggi death rattles Riyadh
Beware: There are no corroborating attributions for any of the statements in the body of the above-linked article. Hedda Hopper herself didn't insinuate as blatantly as the Guardian does!
Not to mention that "death rattles" is a callous, ham-fisted, poor-taste allusion.
The article begins:
Stated as fact, yet still no body has been produced and all that's offered is an audio tape of sounds - you know, like a radio play: "Oof, biff, bam, ouch, stop that, you're killing me, buzz, buzz (bone saw)".
Pardon me, but I remember when all we had was radio and the sound effects were amazingly realistic.
Who are they? And why do I feel a shudder at the term "regional rules". Sounds like a Mafia code of silence. Why would anyone even admit out loud to there being such a set of "rules"?
Says who, again? A professional mind reader? Or maybe the floor sweeper who will say anything for money and anonimity?
Some decisions ? Name one, please. Ubiquitous? MBS is everywhere at once? Like God? Well, they'll never bring Him down. Solutions will be found.
His most prominent domestic aide? Who is that? Over here the word "domestic" means somebody who does the dusting and cleaning (see above reference to floor sweeper). What's his/her name? Does he/she just answer to "Pssst, wanna make a buck?"
Widely interpreted? Maybe that's a typo. Maybe they meant to say "wildly". Has there been any official statement by any named Saudi person to that effect?
"... in which decision making was made"? Now that's just plain gibberish.
"... after extensive consultation among elders"? Which elders? Was there an official straw-drawing, or what?
"The Source"? I order my tech supplies from them. They're fairly reliable.
Oh, the regional source. Probably doesn't sell tech supplies, just unsubstantiated gossip.
Then the Guardian drifts off into old news. Filler, I guess.
Pompeo's statements about Yemen were in all over the news in October. No need to quote an unnamed British "diplomat". Ran out of innuendo, did they?
More blah, blah ... and then back to MBS:
Must be true; it came from "an official with responsibility". He sweeps the floors and he's also responsible for making sure the kitchen door is locked at night.
Final proof that the audio tapes are proof. Everybody, including "Canadian spies" have been given access to the tapes, so they must be genuine, right?
Oops, here's a tiny section where a source is actually named:
A no-name intelligence chief, mind you. He must have been important, or else non-existent.
But the domestic "aide" may have been sacked for leaving the kitchen door unlocked. Come on, he couldn't have been important or they wouldn't have named him!
Wow, that last sentence is a dilly. MBS has no-name "defenders". And there were no-name "hitmen" who "over-reached in a bid to please their no-name "masters".
Only the corporate media can get away with mere innuendo. Bloggers have to back up everything they say or else they're just ... you know ... bloggers.
