    Russia has withdrawn troops from the city of Lyman in Ukraine's Donetsk region Saturday, one day after announcing the annexation of the area and three other regions.

  • GOP prospects dim in New Hampshire Senate race October 1, 2022
    Republicans are facing an increasingly uphill battle in New Hampshire's Senate race as polls show their chosen candidate, Don Bolduc, losing ground to Sen. Maggie Hassan (D). Observers had long seen Hassan as one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in the upper chamber, but that changed earlier this month when GOP voters chose Bolduc,...
  • Ranking Trump and the top seven GOP White House contenders October 1, 2022
    Former President Trump is the leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, despite facing mounting legal trouble and the recent FBI raid of his Florida home.

  • Hurricane Ian leads to political whiplash for Ron DeSantis October 1, 2022
    It’s been a week of political whiplash for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who in a matter of days has gone from top foil to the Biden White House to a willing partner with the president and his team. It was Sept. 20 when the White House was on alert for the potential that DeSantis...
  • Five takeaways from the Abbott-O'Rourke debate showdown in Texas October 1, 2022

  1. That point about the media is so sadly true. The only time they can shine any more is with a story like this, that (as he put it) actually IS as urgent as they try to make EVERYTHING seem.

  2. Thank you for speaking about what is happening in my Ukraine. We are heart brokean all over the world. It means everything to hear you speak on our wonderful people. Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the Heroes!

  3. Repugnantcons live in a fantasy land of their own creation…and they are very creative sometimes. They need to prop up their opponents in order to appear that much stronger when they "win" by obstructing progress that the majority of the US voting aged population wants.

  4. Did war crimes demoralize nazi Germany? Yes, in the latter stages of WW 2. Will War crimes demoralize russian people? Yes to the extent that they are known to them. But russia is a totalitarian state and buttoned up pretty tight. So radio free Europe or the equivalent in russia must play a part in shedding light on the war crimes being perpetrated.

  5. Zelensky needs some research by you 3. Also report on Blackrock buying up Uk farmland? Bioweapon labs on Russian border? NATO expansion? Some research on that hemisphere’s dynamic.

  6. Wow, Jon Stewart comparing this good for nothing plebian to W. Churchill? Poor Stewart, what turned you into a lunatic or moron? One wonders how can once a normal guy turn into an idiot. That is what Jon Stewart has become with his stupid rant. Shame. He may need special care in a mental institution for the delusional. What a pity. Apparently this clip and its idiotic content is intended for the masses of uneducated and uninformed people in United States. Most countries of the world know how uninformed and moronic so many Americans are. Now a television personality by the name of Jon Stewart has turned moronic. What is going on?

  7. Just think how tragic it all is.I understand both points of view in regards to this crisis.Zelensky cut the water off to Crimea after Putin took it during Obama’s time.Putin always knew his nation was going to need the Black Sea as a trade passage and Ukraine was standing in his way.You left him to take Crimea with hardly a shot and then you decided to tweet his nose and cut the fresh water off….what did you think would happen.I think there will be nothing left of Ukraine when it is over.

  8. Why did Putin attack Ukraine while Biden was in office? Multiple reasons. A: He thought NATO was dead and Orangesicle Mcfatman helped that. B: He drives defense spending and needs to know what each side has so they can keep building to defend against it. C: He thought this would be a political winner. D: China interim proxy war. Don't let 3 aircraft carriers be seen as a weakness for an invasion of Taiwan. China has many other weapons, several can take out a modern US aircraft carrier.

  9. If you've spent your entire career deeply observing the failure of the media, why would you look at this situation and think, "Oh, CNN/MSNBC/etc suddenly grew a conscience!" instead of, "Hunh, I wonder what they're not telling me, or perhaps lying about outright?"

    To answer my own question, I think the reason is that this story hits a little closer to home for Jon, and I think it's clouded his more typical impartiality and critical thinking.

    The media has never done a good job–why would this situation be any different?
