Skip to comments.Russia’s fraudulent news reports exposed

Getting caught spreading false news does not seem to discourage Russian media in the ferocious information war against Ukraine, with journalists from Ukraines 'Channel 24 News' publishing a list of 20 of the most heinous lies Russian media sources have spread.
Some of the boldest fictitious news, according to the Ukrainian channel, includes footage from Syria being passed off as an attack by pro-Russia separatists on a Ukrainian military helicopter on 15 April.
Some of the most striking and false footage put out by Russia features children. On the 10 May journalist Ermina Kotadzhjan, from Russias LifeNews channel, published a photograph of what she said was an 8-year-old boy who had been badly injured in a Donetsk shootout on her Twitter account. It was later picked up by another Russian news source. In reality the photograph was of a wounded child from Syria.
Anybody still care about this?
NOPE - and talk about the Press spreading lies... hmmm where else does that happen in the Free world?
Why should the Russian main stream media be any different from the US main stream media?
Propaganda tools are propaganda tools regardless of the language.
They learned their lessons from our media.
“Anybody still care about this?”
Evidently, since the Putinistas insist on vehemently defending the lies.
“Propaganda . . .
It’s called propaganda.”
The most effective propaganda is information that is 100 percent truthful. The United States broadcast truthful news and entertainment by radio to NAZI Germany’s U-boat crews during the Second World War with very effective results as propaganda.
False propaganda is the opposite of truthful propaganda.
Propagandists and apologists for Putin and his lies infest FR lately.
LOL .when are we going to get excited in the USA about the steady diet of false news reports we get daily?
the only difference is their media really is literally state-owned where ours might as well be
True enough. The word propaganda had a much more respectable meaning before WWII (see a Websters unabridged dictionary published prior to 1940) before Goebbels, Stalin, and the whole NY-DC Beltway got their grubby hands on the term.
Either you care about propaganda, or you do not. Doesn’t make much sense to excuse it by exclaiming, “but our media does it also.”
“Well of course the government lies, and the press lies. But in a democracy, they aren’t the same lies!”
The KGB infiltrated our news media with leftwing liars from the 50's thru the 90's.
What we have in this country now is the result of that. The US media learned from them.
We here FreeRepublic has been covering US media lies for 15 years. Where have you been.
We here at FreeRepublic have been covering...
Josef Goebbles learned the craft from Edward Bernays. Bernays was on Woodrow Wilson’s “Committee on Public Information”.
What comes around...
Thanks for the comeback.
“Ukraine News One” Ever heard of them before? No. That’s because they were just invented by the Kiev Regime (and probably the CIA).
Pure propaganda machine.
