NYT retracts proof of “Russian involvement” in Ukraine

RT America on Apr 24, 2014

The New York Times is the center of scrutiny over photos it claimed prove Russian involvement in Ukraine. The photographer of one of the central photos came forward and said the photo the Times’ claimed was taken in Russia, was actually taken in Ukraine and used without his permission. Used by the State Department and news organizations across the world to prove a Russian connection to the unrest in eastern Ukraine, the photo has now called into question the Time’s fact-checking practices. Ameera David speaks to RT’s Anastasia Churkina about the photo and how it has been misused by the mainstream media.

  9. After the ‘truth demolition derby’ the NYT did on Iraq, why even bother buying and reading this news outlet? The sad part is that so many Americans believe just about anything without bothering to check out the other side of the coin.

  13. The media untruth on the Ukraine crisis is the most blatant, flagrant, and obvious in my experience in a long lifetime. Why? The answer is given by the brilliant blogger the Saker in the vineyard (may he live long and prosper.)

    There is an old saw among lawyers that if the facts are against you, pound on the law; if the law is against you pound on the facts; but if both the law and the facts are against you, pound on the table!

    Our rulers, Obama and Kerry, are pounding on the table and the media is pounding right along with them. The pounding is frantic because the people of the world, and even the USA, are increasingly disbelieving what they say.

    This is especially bad in Europe because the whole point of the Ukraine putsch is to create a Cold War 2, and this requires the European people to support expensive, dangerous and stupid policies, just as the American people do. But most people don’t want no trouble, so the pounding and schreeching is becoming more loud and shrill as the American media is out-newsed by Foreign media.

    The problem is exacerbated by the various Revolutions the US has been promoting: the Orange, the Rose, the Tulip, the Scorpion, the Lizard, etc In the Ukraine, the same Nazis have been used in the Orange Revolution as in the current Vulture Revolution. Parubiy, the military leader of the Ukrainian Nazi Svoboda party, who commanded the snipers who killed the protesters and police, was also financed by USA power to help lead the Orange Revolution. So attention must be diverted away from the entire project of the historical attack on Russia
    and Putin portrayed as Hitler leading the horrible Russians in their Aggression.

    It’s enough to make you puke. But consider, as the Saker does. It is actually a sign of weakness on the part of American imperialism that it must yell and shout such deceit, in the face of the people increasingly casting a cold eye on their exhortations. It is extremely difficult to make war if the people you rule don’t trust you. And real democracy is based on this distrust.
