I haven’t watched one second of TV coverage of Ukraine. I find it bizarre that anybody would. The same people who repeat “the MSM lie” at least once every hour don’t seem to be able to unglue themselves from the MSM. I have no idea what the CNN, the Fox News, the New York Times, etc have to say. In a time when you can get the freshest updates directly from the people who are on the ground, why go for belated, second-hand coverage?
I did the same during the Afghanistan withdrawal. Regular Afghanis were publishing important info hours before the CNN would clock on to it. And before anybody says that regular people can make mistakes, exaggerate or lie, so do the MSM.
During the Canadian trucker protests, were you getting your info from the MSM or the truckers? I never turned on the TV once because I knew exactly what I’d hear. It’s the same thing with Ukraine. There’s a ton of English-language journalism done by Ukrainians in Ukraine.
To get you started, Kyiv Independent publishes great updates in English at @KyivIndependent. When they go wrong because the situation is so chaotic, they retract openly and immediately. Give eyeballs to people who haven’t lied to you egregiously and with contempt for years. The MSM that lie to you are making money off you with every click.
