You are very correct about the Western media’s reporting - or lack thereof - regarding the Ukraine crisis. It took the Washington Post two weeks to acknowledge the turnaround in the fighting in East Ukraine last summer!
You don’t necessarily have to agree with everything they say either, but for those interested in getting the “other side of the story,” apart from RT and Russian news agencies, Sputnik and ITAR-TASS, I recommend the following websites:
Russia Insider (sponsored by Western ex-pats living in Russia)
Fort Russ (translated articles from Russian media).
Vineyard of the Saker (blog by geopolitical analyst.
Bias by omission is even more prevalent in the West than bias by prevarication (though there is plenty of that too).
Fort Russ is interesting, though most of their stories link back to Sputnik or RT.
Not sure what I think about “Vineyard”, or “The Saker”. “The Saker” is a pseudonym for a supposed “top level” American military analyst who lives in Florida”, and most of the info seems to be translations from VK posts.
