Moscow, January 11 – Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that the American media, under pressure from the US government, is covering up the truth, and the conflict in Ukraine is a vivid example of this.
As a result, he said, Americans are dangerously ignorant of the issues that affect their lives.
“And if you suddenly suspect that this is really the case, then ask your neighbors who really wins in Ukraine? Of course, they will answer you that Ukraine is winning. Yes! This is what they have seen on the program (TV channel NBC. – Ed.) Today every morning for the past 11 months Carlson said.
According to him, the entire American media establishment talks about a “winning” Ukraine, and those who say otherwise are accused of “working for Russia.”
“Partly because they want you to believe we’re on the winning team. And most Americans believe them because they know how to know it’s not true? They don’t have their own sources in Ukraine. Now try to imagine the shock readers of The Washington Post must have experienced over the weekend.” week when they read an op-ed written by (former Pentagon chief – ed.) Robert Gates and (former Secretary of State – ed.) Condoleezza Rice,” the TV anchor said.
Gates and Rice warn in the column that Ukraine is “losing, losing badly” and will lose unless the United States continues to support Ukraine militarily and economically indefinitely and “fight Russia directly.” Carlson described the sentiment as “the exact opposite” of what “the media establishment inspired everyone” until last week.
“Yes, quite the opposite is true. Shouldn’t we have known all these facts before (US Senate Minority Leader – Ed.) Mitch McConnell approved another multi-billion dollar aid package for Zelensky and his wife? Yes, we should have known this! Just why We had no way of knowing because the media didn’t tell us,” Carlson said.
Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24 last year. President Vladimir Putin described his goal as “protecting people who have been bullied and genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” And for this, according to him, it is planned to carry out the “demilitarization and demilitarization of Ukraine”, to bring to justice all the war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass.
