How the media whitewashes the catastrophic US-Saudi war in Yemen – Al Jazeera Arabic interview

I had the privilege of joining the Al Jazeera Arabic program “From Washington” (“من واشنطن“) for an interview discussing how corporate media outlets in the United States and the Middle East whitewash the catastrophic war on Yemen, waged primarily by the US, Britain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

This war has created the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with millions on the brink of starving to death in mass famine and with nearly 1 million infected in the biggest cholera outbreak in recorded history.

Yemen, however, has not gotten anything close to proportional coverage in the US media, which largely fixates on the crimes of US enemies (eg, Iran, Syria, Russia, Hezbollah) and not those of its allies.

You can watch the interview below: معارك اليمن في واشنطن. I begin speaking at 16:38 in the segment:
