I'm sure everyone has heard of this. In my opinion, I have a choice between believing that the U.S. media is reliable, or that both the Russian and U.S. media are unreliable. My instinct tells me that both are controlled. Probably there is no way of really knowing the situation in Ukraine; people believe just because they see a video clip that they know what is going on; what they don't realize is that the media has already set the parameters of their thinking about what they see. They see some guys with a tank; according to the media's slant they will see them as foreign aggressors or brave liberators protecting the ethnic Russian minority from the U.S.-backed coup leadership of Ukraine.
Has anyone seen the clip where the RT anchor resigns on air because of RT's coverage? And the video where Piers Morgan is rattled because another RT anchor tells him that 90% of the U.S. media is owned by 6 corporations, and he responds with a platitude, and then she implies he is lying by talking about self-censorship in the corporate media? He responds angrily; it's a good clip. I choose to believe it is representative because I like to believe in corporate control and corruption; who can prove this wrong?
