This is my basic rule of thumb now: whatever they say then realise that the exact opposite is usually where the truth is
One example at random today:
The Ukrainians are complaining that Russia is using “nuclear blackmail” at the Zaporizhzhia nuke power plant. This is a headline on the Beebs front webpage right now
But we here know that this is the exact OPPOSITE of reality. Ukraine is shelling the plant in a desperate bid to halt the Russian advance in SE Ukraine
My rule of thumb is certainly a better guide than taking what the presstitutes say at face value
