USA/UK credibility sinks as netizens work around media bans to truth
“Media bans like the ones of America and Britain on Sputnik, Russia Today and all other Russian media, which are illegal, have backfired,” says Danny Caruso, a retired Canadian linguist/interpreter who devotes his life now to fact checking CNN, ABC, MSNBC and Fox News global news reportage from his satellite dishes at his condo in Montreal.
“As netizens do workarounds to the media bans using virtual private networking and other IT tricks, the other side of the story becomes clearer to everyone,” said Mr. Caruso who speaks six languages and checks reportage against source in multiple languages.
“The Russian military operation is just one more in a continuation of ongoing tit-for-tat war moves by Ukraine and the USA against ethnic Russians in the Donbass region where two breakaway nations—Donetsk and Luhansk Republics—exist now since 2014.
Her extremely important story you may not have heard because of the West’s manic verve for controlling information.
Netizens are learning these truths like the story of this lady (83) in Mariupol, (below photo) her husband is 90 and she along with thousands of other senior citizens have no hope of evacuating Ukraine from their bombed out homes “without substantial assistance including minders to attend their care during travel” , according to the few medical caregivers in the city of Mariupol.
Alona Adamovich who operates the RINJ birthing clinics and women’s shelters in Mariupol for The RINJ Foundation has been hearing from her women patients about elderly family members, and seniors living alone in the basements of shelled out homes who have no hope of evacuating without substantial assistance including minders to attend their care during travel. That’s a story Roman Koserev has tried to tell but his journalistic work is banned in the West because he is Russian. See the video below.
“Press freedom’s trajectory in the Commonwealth of Independent States was not always so dire. In the period immediately preceding the Soviet collapse and in its immediate aftermath, the emergence of a nascent, independent press suggested a durable and institutionalized Fourth Estate might materialize. The Soviet era’s waning days saw the exertion from below of significant pressure for greater freedom of expression and a diverse and independent reporting of news. In the former satellite countries of Central Europe – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia – and the Baltic states, censorship was cast aside and a free press rose from the ashes of the Soviet system. For the 12 non Baltic former Soviet republics, however, the promise of the opening in the late 1980s and early 1990s was short-lived,” writes Christopher Walker in “Muzzling the Media: The Return of Censorship”
Remember this? Two sides to the story the West does not want you to hear:
Introduced by Alona Adamovich who operates the RINJ birthing clinics and women’s shelters in Mariupol for The RINJ Foundation Mr. Roman Koserev is a well known video-journalist in the Donbass region these past eight years, filming for ‘Russia Today’ and perhaps other outlets. Here he is shown in Mariupol, Ukraine with some of the patients he has befriended in the basements of Mariupol. It’s a good story, says Alona Adamovich. It reinforces what we are saying about the desperate plight of the elderly in Ukraine.
UN Comes down on banning reporters from doing their work.
The right of journalists to work anywhere, was the subject of a Thursday UN press briefing by Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
When asked about Britain’s wide reaching sanctions and bans on Russian media and journalists, she said, “As a matter of principle, we very much do believe in the right of journalists to do their work everywhere,” Stephane Dujarric told reporters.
