So this isn’t happening in the Czech Republic ? .... farmers aren’t protesting in the Netherlands and Ireland ? Boris hasn’t resigned ? I’m sorry if your preferred MSM refuses to report what’s important to average citizens instead of just regurgitating the accepted line from the powers that be ..... Maybe you can give me a list of news agencies YOU find credible and I’ll try and keep my post within YOUR parameters.

Sure protests are happening, that is part and parcel of any democracy and is one of our freedoms is western society.

CIVIL WARS HAVE OFFICIALLY STARTED IN EUROPE is the sensationalist bollocks I was referring to. I just find it comical that someone who complains so much about MSM posts guff like this.

See this is exactly why I usually don’t bother responding to you and many like you here ..... you are either arguing semantics or just throwing out personal barbs ..... all the while never actually looking within the written or spoken words for any validity ..... Now I’ll almost guarantee that should the headline have been about a new and improved vaccine or some TDS tripe, even if the insides of the article was tripe you’d be all over it like white on rice, but because your personal bias is Ukraine Good, Russia Bad you automatically throw a barb at me personally and disregard the video out of hand .... Your hypocrisy while disappointing isn’t unexpected. I’ll go back to ignoring your nonsensical one liners again,

I was just calling out your hypocrisy, not sure what the personal barb you accuse me of is. Your response says a lot about you, unable to defend yourself so you try to categorise me and assume my views. Its ok though, I know agitators like you have to justify yourselves by branding anyone who dares questions you as being brainwashed by MSM.

LOL. So they are claiming Boris Johnson resigned because of this? They should get their facts straight.

One should take this reporting out of India with a grain of salt.

Is it OK to call out your BS now? You clearly have an agenda you are trying to push. It would be nice if you could defend it with facts.

I haven't mentioned Russia or Ukraine. Your post something says "CIVIL WARS HAVE OFFICIALLY STARTED IN EUROPE" but really what the story says is that there are protests. How can you constantly complain about MSM then put your name to sensationalist BS like that?

I feel like you're arguing about semantics rather than the issue highlighted.

You're more concerned about the title accuracy, and I think CaptainCanuck is saying "Look, the reason behind the protests are of major concern."

If you just said "I don't think what they are protesting is a big deal" then the conversation would be a lot shorter, or at least it would get somewhere because then you'd be on the same page.

My take.
