Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are an infinite number of good places for informed or alternative viewpoints out there.  That's not the issue.  The issue is those big-name, all-pervasive sources from which most people in the English speaking world get their news were neither informed or providing alternative viewpoints on this situation.  I mean, I can hang out at Russian Live Journal blogs all day, listen to Pacifica and Worldview, but that doesn't excuse the fact that scored of well-paid influential journalists were not doing their jobs.
