Most coverage of Ukraine events by American media is scandalously biased against Russia, rating a solid F. But from time to time glimmers of professionalism get through, as is the case with reports by Holly Williams (CBS News), who consistently gets C+ or better (see below). In her current work, which we are at a loss to explain how the big wigs in the home office do not censor, she seems to strive to present a more impartial picture of the developments in Eastern Europe (See below).  Williams, who previously produced for BBC and SkyNews, has reported from Africa, Egypt, Turkey and Beijing (she spent 12 years in China), among other venues.  [This is her official resume.] Considering how much is at stake, we can only hope that Williams will not succumb to careerist pressures and choose to comply more “loyally” with the official line.

By far the most hypocritical and sanctimonious nation in history.
Other perfidious powers have been arrogant in their evil, or callously indifferent to the suffering they cause. They rarely sought to hide their crimes behind elaborate curtains of dissimulation.
