So here’s FoxNews.com lead story vs. Yahoo.com on this fine Saturday morning… I don’t know, I’ve been paying closer attention to what’s going on with Russia and her immediate neighbors. Ever since the collapse of USSR these satellite countries have internal struggles between citizens friendly to Russia (if not having actual Russian heritage) and those wanting to break all ties and join western Europe.
This is from the Fox News article:
Russia, the United States and the European Union are deeply worried about the future of Ukraine, a nation of 46 million whose loyalties and economy are divided between Europe and longtime ruler Moscow.
In a special parliament session, lawmakers warned that the country risks being split in two. The country’s western regions want to be closer to the EU and have rejected Yanukovych’s authority in many cities, while eastern Ukraine — which accounts for the bulk of the nation’s economic output — favors closer ties with Russia.
But many in America who get their minimum daily allowance of news from the likes of Yahoo (probably the most popular start page on the web) are treated to Olympics, goat videos, and Dancing With The Stars.
Not good America.
