    Here's a quote from CNN politics...

    ""The Russian President has been isolated and punished by much of the world for a litany of aggressions and atrocities, including the invasion of Ukraine, the annexation of Crimea, the downing of a Polish plane, the deadly nerve agent attack in the United Kingdom and support for the Assad regime in Syria.""

    First off Russia did not invade the Ukraine. Crimea as a simi-autonomous Region succeeded and voted to become part of Russia. The other accusation made are also up for debate. What happened to innocent until proven guilty. The MSM has been railroading Putin for years and it's not right. We as Americans should be ashamed of ourselves for letting the press get away with this crap.

    'Innocent until proven guilty' is not part of Putin's Russia.

    LOL I didn't say it was. Im saying the US press is putting out propaganda as news and the American people ought to call them on it.

    Americans by and large have the same problem as the press, they lack the ability to think critically. The only thing Americans know is branding and slogans.

    Can you copy in some text on a proper story of the Ukraine event?

    I don't like links, anti-virus might not be up to snuff.

    I just wanted to point one little thing out. It seems a bit ironic to me.

    The MSM, including CNN, gets paid by their advertisers based on viewership, and "clicks". For you to be able to accurately quote CNN you had to either watch the network, or "click" on their site, thereby giving them higher ratings (however small your contribution was), and allowing CNN to then charge more to advertise. So, in your attempt to "out" them, you actually helped them, in a small way.

    Just thought that was a bit ironic, from someone who seems to be advocating that people stop viewing outlets such as CNN...

    Aside from that, it seems as though you are defending Russia, and Putin. Are you a Russian? LOL
