CNN on the situation on the Polish border. "A mixture of misinformation and ill will"

 Yesterday, practically most of the day, and no one knows why CNN devoted to informing about the situation on the Polish border. Only those who really understand what's going on will find out that CNN skillfully skips some aspects and highlights others. "Rare video from Belarus' border shows reality on the ground of crisis" are played from the migrant camp.

Te "coverage" was noticed in Poland. Below are some of the reactions.

Niezalezna(.)pl: - The material released by them should be treated as a mixture of misinformation and ill will. There is no such thing as an area between Belarus and Poland. This is an extreme lack of professionalism and unawareness of what the actual situation looks like - says Przemysław Żurawski vel Grajewski, commenting on the CNN publication about migrants trying to break into Polish territory. The political scientist also emphasizes that this type of material can be used for propaganda purposes by Alyaksandr Lukashenka's regime.

Stanisław Żaryn, Spokesperson of the Minister-Special Services Coordinator, wrote: - "The migrants who came to Belarus are not" between Poland and Belarus "- they are in Belarus. The Lukashenka regime is fully responsible for these people. They are not refugees - they are migrants who paid a lot for smuggling them into the EU."

- It must be made clear that CNN cannot be treated as a government agency. It is a private enterprise with clear political affiliations and sympathies that concern the left-liberal political scene. Therefore, it is difficult to expect favor for the Polish government from this station - added prof. Żurawski vel Grajewski.

Ever since Ted Turner used scandalous words about Pope John Paul II for which CNN had to apologize, the station was never fair in the coverage of Polish affairs. You can say they are biased against Poland.
