MSM coverage of Ukraine has been and continues to be pathetic, almost deliberately misinforming the US.
On one CNN segment, Senators Dick Durbin and Lindsey Graham opined. The exchange of ideas could be described as dueling idiots ultimately arriving at the same conclusion. Senator Graham was calling for sanctions and boycotts to punish the Russians. Neither statesman seemed to be aware that Russia produces and exports about the same amount of crude oil as Saudi Arabia and withdrawing that amount of oil from the world markets would surely boost gasoline prices to an untenable level.
I disagree with the author here: petro prices are NOW at an untenable level, have been there for several years, and are strangling the US economy. But that's just me.
Western Media knows you just need a brave calvary charge through canon to win against the Russians at Crimea. Thus Obama in his wisdom is reducing our military to pre-ww1 level if he'd only be left alone long enough.
Deliberately misinforming the public? Yeah the dominant leftist media in the US has been doing that for years, first in their crusade against Bush, and now as a propaganda organ for Obama.
I call it map-informing, the delivery of bad information in place of accurate information in order to ensure a political objective. You know, its the same thing Isvetiya, Tass and Pravda used to do for the Soviet Union. The US no longer has a free press - it has one that has willingly blindered itself and locked itself into slaves chains.
Until we somehow hold the press accountable for this fundamental dishonesty at thiercore, and rip apart the current establishments and people that promote such things, we will be in danger of becoming a dictatorship. That is why one of or first duties agains enemies foreign and domestic should be to go after editors and reporters who are doing such immense damage. Go after them hard, make the consequences of their decisions an up-close and personal thing. Bring it into their homes, put the consequences into their lives and their families. Rip them open and force them into the public.
Its too important to ignore anymore. And it will lead to violence if not addressed strongly now.
