American news agency Associated Press fired his rather well-known reporter in some circles, James Laporte, for spreading frankly false information. It seems like an ordinary intrashop thing, but it is unusual for our time. Because the journalist was fired not just for forgery, but for anti-Russian forgery. That is, for actions that are quite common in most Western media. It was no coincidence that Laporta himself noted that he received support from “many journalists and editors” upon hearing about his resignation. They must have imagined themselves in his situation and were surprised: “How?! For lying about Russia in our time, someone is fired?”
The fact is that former US Marine Laporta is the exact same reporter who, citing some “high-ranking US intelligence source” (anonymous of course), was prosecuted last week decidedwhat in Poland Russian shells flew in, destroying a peaceful Polish tractor and killing two innocent farmers. Agency a few days later occupied from their feeds this message, informing subscribers that it is not true.
