Italian Newspaper Denies ‘Disinformation’ Despite Publishing Completely Misleading Front Page Photo

Editor-in-chief doubles down despite being caught red handed.

La Stampa/Twitter

Italian newspaper La Stampa has denied accusations it engaged in disinformation by publishing a front page photo of a Ukrainian ballistic missile strike on Donetsk while suggesting it had been carried out by Russia.

The daily news outlet promised readers coverage of Russian attacks in Kiev and Lvov alongside a headline that read “The Carnage”.

The headline was illustrated with an image of a man covering his face in grief as dead bodies lie around him along with lines about “traumatized children in Lvov” and “Kiev preparing for the final assault” by Russian troops.

The photograph actually showed the aftermath of a ballistic missile strike on Donetsk, the capital of a pro-Russian breakaway republic in eastern Ukraine, after it was hit by a tactical Tochka-U ballistic missile that was almost certainly launched by Ukraine.

Whoops!

However, editor-in-chief Massimo Giannini vehemently denied in an interview that the publication had deliberately misled readers.

“The thing that bothers me most and pains me a lot is that there are also some people here in Italy, some disgraced people of the web, who amplify this and call it a case of disinformation,” said Giannini.

“Where is the disinformation?” he asked.

How about right there on your front page, Massimo?

Imagine if a Russian newspaper had published emotive front page coverage of alleged Ukrainian attacks on pro-Russian rebel areas of the country and then illustrated it with images that actually showed Russian attacks on Kiev.

Critics would immediately denounce the publication for engaging in egregious disinformation, and they’d be right.

Apparently though, amidst the ideological clamor to support the “current thing,” only Russia engages in propaganda and disinformation.

NATO powers and western media outlets are complete saints!

UPDATE: The Ukrainian government is also tweeting the same photos claiming they are evidence of Russian atrocities!

Sky News Interview Cut Short After Mention of Zelensky Posting Soldier With SS Insignia

Well, this is awkward.

A Sky News interview with Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyanskiy was cut short after mention was made of President Zelensky posting an image of a soldier wearing SS insignia.

Zelensky posted his Victory Day statement along with a collection of images of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians.

However, after it was revealed that one of the Ukrainian soldiers was wearing a symbol of the Totenkopf division of the SS, the post was hastily deleted.

During the interview, Polyanskiy made reference to the controversy, but was quickly cut off after bringing it up.

“Do you know what it is? It’s an emblem of a German SS division in the Second World War. So he published on the Victory Day an emblem of a fighter of Right Sector [banned in Russia] with this emblem, saying that this is a symbol of [the] fight against Nazism as he sees it,” Polyanskiy said.

“This was deleted after half an hour but, of course, we have a copy of this… It means that [the] UK now is covering Ukrainian authorities, which display Nazi symbols during the Victory Day,” he added.

The host of the show seemed eager to prevent Polyanskiy from elaborating any further.

“And there you have it, the famous freedom of speech in the West,” Polyanskiy subsequently joked on Telegram.

“Now they think 100 times before inviting Russian diplomats on live broadcast,” he concluded.

Yes, they may be Nazis, but they’re our Nazis!

Noam Chomsky: Trump is Only Western Statesman Pushing to End War in Ukraine

Leftist intellectual Noam Chomsky asserted during a recent interview that there is only “one western statesman of stature” pushing to end the war in Ukraine – Donald Trump.

The professor of linguistics made the remarks in a recent interview, a clip of which was posted to Twitter by journalist Glenn Greenwald.

“Well there is, fortunately, one statesman in the United States and Europe…who has made a very sensible statement about how you can solve the crisis, namely by facilitating negotiations instead of undermining them and moving towards establishing some kind of accommodation in Europe,” said Chomsky.

The author went on to describe a plan first introduced by George H.W. Bush – Partnership for Peace – which would guarantee that NATO would not expand further eastwards and “move towards a world with no military alliances.”

Chomsky that the only prominent person advocating a “move towards negotiations and diplomacy instead of escalating the war” was “Donald J. Trump.”

This is not the first time a top leftist has cited Trump as someone whose policies would have stopped a war in the first place or brought it to a swift end.

As we highlighted last month, Marie Yovanovitch, the former US Ambassador to Ukraine, admitted there would have been no war had Trump remained in power, but that this was a bad thing.

“I think that Trump would have provided Putin with enough of what he wanted that perhaps he wouldn’t have invaded,” said Yovanovitch.

A Washington Post article published last month admitted that prominent individuals within NATO want to extend the conflict for as long as possible

As we reported earlier today, Trump dropped another hint that he is planning to run again in 2024 during a ‘Save America’ rally in Greenwood, Nebraska.
