Seymour Hersh spoke to Radio War Nerd about his recent column on the Nord Stream blast that blames the Biden administration of carrying out the attack.
It was his first interview after his story was published that has been largely ignored by the Western propaganda media.
Hersh said he was asked about how he found the story, and said his friend told him he is an “expert at deconstructing the obvious.”
He said German newspapers have been “nasty” to him and outlets like The Washington Post and New York Times simply ignore him. He said these outlets want him to name his source, which he will not, because the individual will end up in jail.
“I protect people,” he said.
“The problem is, it’s all been cheapened. Because now the New York Times and the Washington Post think an unnamed source can be a press guy, a press secretary, that whispers something to them on the side. I don’t know, they don’t seem to have anyone inside,” he said.
He theorized that mainstream outlets in the U.S. avoided his stories because it gives a “pro-Russian” impression.
“The way I look at it, you know, the White House, despite all the criticism of [President Joe] Biden…they have The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSN, and CNN fronting for them,” Hersh said.
Hersh said the only reporter to call him was Fox News’s Tucker Carlson.
“It’s amazing to be how they fall in line, my colleagues,” he said.
