Selective disgust

"How American Journalism Became A Mouthpiece Of The Deep State" (Van Buren).

"Mark Zuckerberg Should Never Be Allowed To Touch U.S. Elections Again" (Ludwig/Lee).  It takes a lot of money to harvest those Joe Biden votes cast by dead people.

"Putin-Biden Meeting" (Armstrong):

"I can’t see any reason for Putin bothering unless it be curiosity to see for himself Biden’s state of mind."

"Disgust at Belarus’ grounding of Ryanair jet selective given lack of concern about similar incidents involving West & its clients" (Robinson):

"The West declared no such outrage when in a remarkably similar incident in 2016, the Ukrainian authorities forced a Belarusian Belavia airliner to land in Kiev and arrested one of the passengers, the Armenian “journalist, blogger, and anti-Maidan activist” Armen Martirosyan."

Remarkably similar, the only differences being that Ukraine only threatened to send up the jets, but didn't have to as the threat was enough to convince the pilot to land in Kiev (although it was made after the plane had reached Belorussian airspace!), and that Ukraine apparently didn't take the activist into permanent custody (though they did remove him from the plane for questioning).
