I tried reading Ukrainian media, really, I did.

But it is not possible.

Balanced reporting and analysis is now illegal and what is left is shouty, insane stuff about which all that one needs to know is that it is shouty and insane.

It is like every media outlet, every newspaper, every magazine, every tv show is ALL the Sunday Sport (maybe National Enquirer for USAians) - minus some of the sex.
Now, I can enjoy a good made up story as much as the next bloke, but when that's all there is it gets boring!

It beggars belief that anyone (besides Jay) would take such articles seriously... but there are millions of them.

And yet, there are no photographs.

You know, last week I saw Jesus Christ. We went out and had a few drinks in town. Nice bloke, bit too goody goody for me though. But what an idiot I was, I forgot to take a photo of us - now nobody will believe me, I might as well stay shtum about it.

Well, the article SAYS ''The Dutch experts have confirmed the authenticity of the photos.''... Perhaps, you'll need to send a memo to your handler .... :chuckle:

Unless you read it on the official Dutch site, it is likely made up. The nature of Ukrainian and other propaganda. Zik routinely makes stuff up, so one can regard it like Fox and CNN.

In Dutch newssites, there was only talk about the Russians submitting evidence it was a 'bomb' in de cockpit, with audio-tapes of the voice-recorder of MH17.

Dutch reporters then said that propaganda was so huge the truth was to be determined only by the investigators and not some news media. (Ergo: we dont believe the bomb story)

As you'd know if you were able to tell the difference between fact and lies fiction, there was nothing in the article to give it any verisimilitude.

However, the absence of the claimed images, the value of which would not be affected by their publication, was somewhat notable.
