UNTV Loops Loopy Claim by UNCA's Falk to Represent All UN Correspondents

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, April 29 -- The UN Correspondents Association is now broadcasting its propaganda on UN Television, saying it is a “trade association of all of the correspondents of the UN.”

  That is false, and the speaker of the line, Pamela Falk of CBS, knows that it is false.

  Back on February 22, in an on the record session in front of the official who run UNTV, Falk screamed at Inner City Press not to write about her, and not to dare write to her employer, CBS.

  (She would, however, send a censorship threat from her e-mail address.)

  Now she appears in an “interview” with Global Connections Television, a venue which says its interviews “UN officials and ambassadors.” So which one is Falk?

  When Falk filmed the segment, multiple sources have told Inner City Press she demanded in advance no questions about Inner City Press or the Free UN Coalition for Access.

  Global Connections was asked, back then, for a review copy of the show. None was provided. Now it is online, and will be broadcast propaganda style in the UN's lobby.

Falk brags about a prize she got -- from the very organization she “leads” -- and about her “election” -- which came with no other candidate. Those who run UNTV have tried to keep UNCA the only game in town, unsuccessfully.

  On March 18 they conducted a non-consensual raid on Inner City Press' office -- and UNCA's Pam Falk ghoulishly took photographs. On March 21 photographs were leaked to BuzzFeed, right after that publication contacted Ban Ki-moon's spokesman Martin Nesirky with questions about the raid.

  That weekend Falk send Inner City Press a legal threat, from her email address, saying to “cease and desist” from even questioning why she was taking photos of the raid on the Press' office. A trade association of all correspondents of the UN? Hardly. We will have more on this.
