Rosebud Commentary: Media Heroes and Villains
In the urgency of reporting the real-time horrors and details of Putin's unprovoked invasion of his neighbor Ukraine, there emerges solid journalists reporting from the scenes with accuracy, grace under pressure and showing courage in the crunch. That's a big difference from the rest of the media bunch.
The incessant talking heads and inane tangents they take viewers on are chronicled here in this Rosebud Commentary by our Larry Mendte. We invite you to watch, and then write Larry at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know if you agree or disagree with his points.
Not shown in the Commentary, but someone who should be singled out, is Clarrisa Ward of CNN, who is doing an absolutely stellar job of reporting from the front lines with a full command not only of the fluid situation and the human toll, but speaks comfortably in Ukrainian and Russian languages to those she meets.
