RadioActive—Ukrainian Undertones: Media Behavior while covering the 2014 Crimean Crisis

UKRAINE-UNREST-POLITICS-EU-RUSSIA

Russian boots occupied Crimea on February 23rd and the 24 hour news cycle has blitzed. Yet Western and Russian versions of the story are vastly different. To one, this is democracy vs. authoritarianism — an old western battle cry. On the other side, Russians are hearing that this is a fight to defend ethnic brothers from fascism. Media behavior has been peculiar, why isn’t either side covering the whole story? Luke Parra joined us on-air to explain.
