Article: Falsehoods in the NYT's Editorial, 'Mr. Putin Tests the West in Ukraine' | OpEdNews

Article: Falsehoods in the NYT's Editorial, 'Mr. Putin Tests the West in Ukraine' | OpEdNews: The Times editorial opens with a falsehood: "There is no longer any doubt: Russian troops are in Ukraine, not as volunteers, as the rebel commander in Donetsk would have the world believe, but in units equipped with mobile artillery and heavy military equipment." Their only cited source for that statement is "a senior NATO officer." But should anyone take as a source, on that type of matter, either an anonymous U.S.-NATO official, or an anonymous Russian official? That's hardly an unprejudiced "source," in either case -- and it's their only source on this.
