    I am always really wary of anything produced by Russian state media, especially when it tried to shine some sort of light on corruption in our own society. There is something of the pot calling the kettle black.

    Watch both sides of the propaganda and then dig deeper into the facts behind them and decide who's more accurate, or at least build up a picture of what is really going on.

    Isn't that a contradiction? I thought propaganda was devoid of facts?

    I said look deeper into the facts, meaning find the facts behind the assertions, sometimes supposed facts are not supported by much evidence but are called facts regardless.

    Aside from that, propaganda isn't devoid of facts, it's just information, both true and untrue that is especially biased or misleading in nature, used to promote a political cause, narrative or point of view.

    Are you similarly wary of anything produced by the on-message Western MSM? I sure hope so
