Tell the “terrible truth” that Russian invaders are killing Ukrainian children – HotAir

Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska uses social media to get her messages out, in particular her Instagram account. She has 2.3 million followers. Her latest posts have centered around naming Ukrainian children who have died from Russian forces attacks and telling a bit about them.

On Sunday, she posted a long description of the killing of Ukrainian children and issued a plea for the media to get the stories out that Russians are killing civilians “consciously and cynically.” She also asked for a no-fly zone and for humanitarian corridors to allow Ukrainians to leave.

Mainstream media opposes military aggression — unless the U.S. is doing it

Having worked inside mainstream U.S. media during the beginning of the “War on Terror” and run-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the differences in today’s war coverage are dizzying to me.   

Civilians

While covering Russia’s horrific aggression in Ukraine, there is a real focus — as there always should be — on civilian victims of war.

Media rebrands Ottawa truckers as the “Canadian far right.” – HotAir

One of the interesting aspects of the ongoing Freedom Convoy protests in Canada, aside from the underlying complaints of the protesters, is the curious way that the media in both that nation and the United States have chosen to construct a narrative around the protesters. This is something that others like Tucker Carlson have been noticing and pushing back against. One of the most recent examples can be found in this “explainer” from NBC News published on Thursday evening. They have clearly chosen to lump all of the protesters together as some sort of Trumpesque, Canadian “far right-wing” splinter group
