  • One-sided coverage disappointment

    I’ve been listening to NPR’s Ukraine news coverage for a while now for their unique perspective and news stories, but I’m disappointed with their recent more obvious one-sided coverage, particularly with the cluster munitions story. C’mon NPR. You can do better journalism.
