I started to see the game of “independent reporters” who were actually on the Kremlin payroll and WHY they were used and how common this practice was with RT (and that RT was specifically NOT a Russian publication for a reason: it wasn’t for Russian consumption.

The reason I abandoned Christian Science Monitor was different, although it was over Aleppo too. Theirs was a more subtle center-right shift; a very alluring one being raised in suburban New Jersey. They weren’t shy about their bias; I respected them for that; but on a few issues I noticed myself falling sway to comfortable lazy thinking again on certain important issues and realized I couldn’t separate my thinking properly.

 

l I absolutely agree with you. I think there could/should have been another way and another way forward is possible.
On this I often fall into a learned helplessness state though; I’m aware of the classes and the issues and where my place is and is not in the scheme and so I fall into the way of thinking, “My niche is barely here and I should focus on that”. Still, I try.
