Very occasionally ,even ideologically degenerate media organs such as the Mail on Sunday allow reason ,insight and common sense to be published. Peter Hitchens is the very apogee of what it is to be a Journalist;he is without equal. Gleaned from his column of May 11th. :-
Gunned down – by ‘good’ Ukrainians
Remembered: A relative holds up an photo of 21-year-old nurse Yulia Izotova at her funeral in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine
The absurd bias of most coverage of the Ukraine crisis is best shown in what it does not say. It never mentions that the USA and EU started the whole thing by trying to bribe Ukraine into joining their gang, and by sending leading politicians to egg on the Kiev mob.
And it never gives a fair deal to the Russian case. Here’s proof, if you like.
Yulia Izotova, a 21-year-old nurse, was shot dead while carrying sandwiches to a checkpoint manned by Russian separatists in Kramatorsk. All the evidence suggests her killer was a Ukrainian soldier.
Had it been the other way round, you would have seen a lot of her pretty face, and of her bitter funeral. But you haven’t.
The same is true of the Russians, at least 40 of them, burned to death in Odessa after being besieged in a blazing building by a pro-Kiev mob.
Imagine the headlines and the coverage if it had been pro-Putin marchers doing the besieging.
But this horrible event is barely mentioned in the West. You’re being manipulated by people who want your support for a stupid war. Resist.
Clearly the rabid ,war-mongering zealots of the US neo-con establishment are stopping at nothing in their messianic endeavour to ignite the third world war.
