The coup d'état in Ukraine and its aftermath as well all of the events leading up to it are proving even to the casual thinking observer that the western corporate controlled media has lost any semblance of even a pretense at being fair, balanced and reasonable. News is about presenting facts and those facts are important for all of us to come to conclusions or formulate an opinion.

When the presentation of those facts is being done in a limited, selective and or tainted manner and/or outright fictitious information is being given in such a way as to seem credible and painting itself as truth this stifles debate and makes any dissention or wavering from the narrative seem disreputable and easy to be discounted. Sadly there is almost no alternative in the English speaking world to the state/corporate controlled media or its surrogates.
