I’ve said before that we have a “distraction media” in this country and the appalling coverage of what’s going on in the Ukraine is proof of it.
And by “coverage,” I, of course, mean complete lack of coverage.
But that’s only in mainstream media. Other news outlets are picking up the story, but the average American doesn’t turn to those outlets for their news. Sadly, they get it from CNN, MSNBC and other such sources.
We should all be paying attention to Kiev right now, because what’s happening is very serious and very dangerous. Check out the Verge for a livestream of events as they unfold.
