The Ugliest Side of “Journalism”. Bar None.

Sometimes words are not enough. This is one of these times.
Please watch the video below. In its first part, it shows an interview with a Ukrainian soldier near Schastye, taken by a Ukrainian TV crew from Hromadske TV (who were later kidnapped by pro-Russian, or Russian, militants).

The second part shows the way Russian TV (in particular, Channel 5 of St. Petersburg) perverts truth to the point I want to strangle the “reporter”.
Channel 5 was a very respectable news media, focusing on culture, when I worked in St. Petersburg in the mid 90’s. What has happened to Russia??
