This is a powerful, must-read article from Russia’s news station, RT. RT reports that after weeks of travel, hardships and uncertainty, some 8,000 exhausted refugees have finally made it to Germany. This is currently the most popular news story on Twitter under the following hash-tags: #Germany #refugees
RT also describes how the mass exodus via Austria came after Hungary gave up on its attempts to stop the progress of asylum seekers and bused them to its northern border.
It’s remarkable that despite massive resources being deployed by the American mainstream media that it’s the Russian media‘s viewpoint that is most popular on social media.
This leads me to an open question:
Are we perhaps seeing some bias from the American media, keen to focus on the humanitarian refugee crisis and deflect attention from the causes, which include US foreign policy interventions under President Obama?
