Ukraine and the Media – is anyone impartial anymore?

The whole Media reporting of the goings on in Ukraine is becoming as weird and self serving as the various factions conduct in the whole dispute.

Having the TV on in the background usually on a News Channel means the constant sniping of networks loyal to one side or another is very obvious. Now, don’t get me wrong like many i long ago accepted that the media would only report what versions of news fitted their particular agenda at the time.. But I’m really getting sick of the News Networks digging at each other about how the Ukraine situation is being reported on their respective networks.

The BBC: Out of touch with Reality?

As a regular BBC viewer and particularly of the News Watch feature, its good to see viewers complaints about standards being represented however, it seems when ever a response is issued by the BBC, all to often it seems to amount to little more than a lame excuse and desperate attempt to justify whatever the action was in the first place that prompted the complaints.

Why can’t the BBC collectively, ┬ájust accept that there are at the very least a percentage of UK viewers (Viewers who have no option other than to bankroll the BBC via the compulsory UK TV licence) who consider the action to be suitably unacceptable to the point of complaining in the first place, and issue an straight forward apology? and ideally learn something from it all as well?

A good example was the complaint about coverage of the Thai police officer being maimed by a grenade.. Which ever idiot came up with that pathetic response from BBC News MUST be sacked along with the idiot who decided to screen the obscene footage in the original report in the first place!

The BBC, National asset or National Disgrace?

Ukraine: Western Hypocrisy or Ukrainian Fanatics?

Has anyone been following the troubles in Kiev?

The one thing that strikes me is that these troubled times boil down to the Ukrainian president accepting a bail out/trade deal from Russia instead of a trade deal with the EU. These recent rounds of disturbances have apparently claimed some 25+ lives (protesters and police). We have protesters firing weapons at police and burning the city centre’s Independence Square and it’s buildings and the police firing back.

Nobody seems to dispute that the protesters were given the opportunity having made their point to pack up and go home without fear of reprisals, yet the troubles just seem to escalate. We are now 3 months into these protests With no end in sight.
