the premises of that last segment were that it was blasphemy and against the laws of physics to regulate an Internet ad farm, and that it was ironic that Oliver was now helping the debt collector to make this man's life a living hell by drawing even more attention to him, though oliver blamed this on the man that he was now helping to mug repeatedly at random.
it ended with Oliver attempting to start a campaign to get a high school picture of himself re-tweeted by his viewers, explaining that it would cause oliver, a wealthy, self-promoting celebrity, to suffer as much as a man whose entire public image & private future had been both created and destroyed by a wealthy, faceless money machine over what they and oliver would have considered chump change, which would probably continue even after the guy's death, ha ha, and also it would further publicly shame that guy for trying to stick up for himself. an old acquaintance I've talked about before on here, a 9/11 truther who posts pro-Bernie Sanders stuff 10 times a day on Facebook, explained to me that this was less "ha ha funny" than it was good politics, but he could not explain why or what that meant.
The Photo The Fueled The Hoax. @Mike_Eckel & me on *that* photo of Arkady Babchenko. Turns out it was pushed on behalf of Kyiv by a murky Ukrainian reporter turned investigator who works for an Arlington-based company and called me middle of last night. https://t.co/rh5h5ThR8V pic.twitter.com/D1Ly0pHQQy— Christopher Miller (@ChristopherJM) May 30, 2018
Ceci n'est pas une cadavre.
tl,dr New York Times has gone mask off, they're now doing "But on the other hand, we must consider Mr. Hitler's argument in defense of white children:"
This is some deranged @nytimes "objective journalism" on Ukrainian Nazis and their pogrom victims. All that's missing is the implied "the truth is somewhere in the middle, who are we to say?" https://t.co/mUTFbYWkRd pic.twitter.com/gZqemYxTXy— Mark Ames (@MarkAmesExiled) July 23, 2018
Konashenko pulls a green compass out of his shirt pocket and opens it. It’s a U.S. military model. “This is a little trophy — a gift from one of my soldiers,” he says. “Everything that the Georgians left behind, I mean everything, was American. All the guns, grenades, uniforms, boots, food rations — they just left it all. Our boys stuffed themselves on the food,” he adds slyly. “It was tasty.” The booty, according to Konashenko, also included 65 intact tanks outfitted with the latest NATO and American (as well as Israeli) technology....
Privately, however, American advisers and defeated Georgian commanders admit to “total defeat.” Indeed, Arkady Ostrovsky of the Economist, a British reporter who has long been close to Saakashvili, told me that on the day of the cease-fire, the Georgian leader spoke of shooting himself, and was only dissuaded when word came of a supportive statement by Condi Rice....
We have entered a dangerous moment in history — America in decline is reacting hysterically, woofing and screeching and throwing a tantrum, desperate to prove that it still has teeth. Which it does — but not in the old dominant way that America wants or believes itself to be. History shows that it’s at this moment, tipping into decline and humiliation, when the worst decisions are made, so idiotically destructive that they’ll make the Iraq campaign look like a mere training exercise fender-bender by comparison.

rip aleksandr zakharchenko.
this morning my radio alarm woke me up by telling me that he had been killed, and further suggested that the culprit was donetsk themselves because their politics are 'murky', or possibly it was russia, but the suggestion that it could have been the ukrainian government is absurd
Or rather, a very specific reporter, Ken Dilanian, has a byline on those stories:
Email exchanges between CIA public affairs officers and Ken Dilanian, now an Associated Press intelligence reporter who previously covered the CIA for the Times, show that Dilanian enjoyed a closely collaborative relationship with the agency, explicitly promising positive news coverage and sometimes sending the press office entire story drafts for review prior to publication. In at least one instance, the CIA’s reaction appears to have led to significant changes in the story that was eventually published in the Times.
On June 25, the Times published Dilanian’s story, which described thorough congressional review of the drone program and said legislative aides were allowed to watch high-quality video of attacks and review intelligence used to justify each strike. Needless to say, the agency hadn’t quibbled with Dilanian’s description of al-Libi’s solitary death. Video provided by the CIA to congressional overseers, Dilanian reported, “shows that he alone was killed.”
That claim was subsequently debunked. In October of 2013, Amnesty International issued a report, based on statements from eyewitnesses and survivors, that the first missile strike targeting al-Libi killed five men and wounded four others. Al-Libi was not even among those victims; he and up to fifteen other people died in a follow up attack when they arrived at the scene to assist victims.
he's got a golden ticket
The serial numbers found on debris of the Buk missile which downed Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine show it was produced in 1986, the Russian military said. The projectile was owned by Ukraine, they added.

It's depressing to think that the propaganda to make a mass base that supports a likely nuclear war against Russia has already been done, after reading the comments here I fear what a liberal administration will mean for the world.
im a bit skeptical of calling the kinds of guys who post democrat talking points on reddit a 'mass base'
Well that's true, despite constant propaganda online and in the media, the majority opposed war in syria. More that it's depressing to see the stage has already been set and the propaganda apparatus fully matured for a war that could end all life on Earth and it happened so quickly.
*didn't vote for Putin, gets downvoted anyway*
One thing you will find if you prod people in the U.S. is that for those among them who do read those stories, they usually have zero impact on their belief that Putin and his party can only win elections in Russia through some vague sort of cheat, and they will demonstrate something like a panic response if you wonder aloud whether Western media characterizing Russians as Putin's dupes or victims is likely to shore up support for Putin and United Russia rather than diminish it. A lot of Russians, on the other hand, tell reporters the same thing Pravda guy told Reddit, which is that they don't want to visit the United States anymore. They can't really help but notice that there's only one downhill path for the "sympathetic" people in the United States who think Russia and the U.S. are dual victims of the monster Putin, and that's the good old-fashioned conclusion that Russians are savage, servile Untermenschen by their constitutions, "strong man" worshipers who should be treated as spies and saboteurs by default while on U.S.-controlled soil.
