  • Isn't it widely reported that the leaked documents were altered to make it look like the war is going worse for the Ukraine than it is? Every other source has said so. Why are you taking them at face value?

  • Obviously good work

    The hacks the alphabets send to discredit media not participating in the lies are on these very reviews. Russian propaganda they claim. It’s a good thing actual humans remember Iraq and the media complicity with that war crime. So we understand actually independent media is vital. Corporate media is completely worthless without truckloads of context and boatloads of grains of salt to take them with.
