2. We have been through these arguments many times.

It has been well established that he was REACTING to an artificial overthrow. The current government is all fucked up because they are MINORITY rightwing and paramilitary politicians. They NEVER could have come to power except in a coup (with our help and support).

And it will continue to be fucked up because they will not stick to a political solution because if things get anywhere near "normal" and calm and they have a non disinfranchised / semi rigged democratic vote there THEY WILL LOSE POWER.

As for Crimea, that was also a REACTION to a constitutional crisis and at this point everyone knows the truth that the vast majority there wanted this. To argue otherwise is simply partisan posturing.

Our media is tabloid and dishonest and knows who pays their checks (advertisers and politicians election advertising money and billionares). Those who are paying attention know that when it comes to matters of war and geopolitics they edit heavily.



At Project Censored, we examine the coverage of news and information important to the maintenance of a healthy and functioning democracy. We define Modern Censorship as the subtle yet constant and sophisticated manipulation of reality in our mass media outlets. On a daily basis, censorship refers to the intentional non-inclusion of a news story or piece of a news story based on anything other than a desire to tell the truth. Such manipulation can take the form of political pressure (from government officials and powerful individuals), economic pressure (from advertisers and funders), and legal pressure (the threat of lawsuits from deep-pocket individuals, corporations, and institutions).
