Putin’s “Ally” – A Case of Misreporting [about Alexander Dugin] ("Research indicates that the vast majority of English-language media stories are taken, almost word for word, from just two sources: a handful of press agencies (primarily AP), and government or corporate press releases. The existence of a large number of media outlets might lead us to believe that we are getting a wide variety of takes on world events. In reality, no matter what we read or watch, we mostly get the same few stories told in exactly the same way. This is especially true of foreign affairs, as the number of Westerners working as foreign correspondents is extremely small.… Were just one media outlet to have characterized Dugin incorrectly it would be a simple case of poor reporting. The fact that almost the entire Western press corps has done so is indicative of a more systemic failing. The impoverished picture one gets of the world as a result of this failing leads to ill considered policies, grounded in ignorance. It’s a problem that needs urgent attention." Or maybe it is narrative-shaping?)

Russia grinds on aimlessly, unable to secure any part of the territory they occupy. At the same time, they whine to the UN and the media about how "unfairly" those Ukrainians fight. Russia is pathetic. And to think I supported their war. Not anymore. I can't side with pathetic losers. I feel bad for the Russia people under this loser, Putin. However, I hope they get their asses kicked. Maybe they'll get rid of him.

You've lost touch with reality. Ukraine has lost the war to the plodding Russian military.
