More Lies: Zelenskiy “Fight is Here” Was Never Said

Zelenskiy visits rebellion’s front lines in 2019…(AFP)

The propaganda coming from our mainstream media is worse than one might ordinarily imagine.  Yes, we should expect propaganda to come out of both Russia and Ukraine in the middle of war, but we’re smart to give it time to soak before we accept it at face value.  Now it’s been revealed that Volodymyr Zelenskiy never actually said that quote that has been widely attributed to him.  The original source for the quote “The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride,” turns out to have been an anonymous “senior American intelligence officer.”  The Washington Post noticed this very thin sourcing, but Summit News did a little more digging. This is what they found.

We’re surrounded by media liars, and people feeding the liars in media. They all have an agenda that isn’t the truth, or your best interests.  We need to be very discerning, and our default setting must be one of intense skepticism.  As I reported earlier, allegedly conservative FoxNews and Newsmax have been caught carrying the DC Mafia’s water, so the number of “trusted” sources of information has rapidly dwindled.  Folks, we need to become the news.  Our own discernment is all that remains to protect us from disinformation, misinformation, fake news, and flat-out lies. As I explained last week, just as politics no longer ends at the water’s edge, neither do the lies.
