Within hours, the entirety of the mainstream media—both liberal and conservative—were singing the same tune; and anyone who questioned the narrative was a conspiracy theorist in bed with the enemy.
Somehow, without any formal investigation, the mainstream media knew who had shot down MH17 on July 17, 2014: that it was Russian-backed Ukrainian separatists—with Vladimir Putin actually pushing the bottom.
This narrative has evolved into a “mistake” by a Ukrainian army defector being responsible with no involvement from Russia. Regardless, the question remains: why, like 9/11, did the mainstream media so quickly have all the answers? The answer may surprise you. This video exposes the real reason MH17 was shot down and why the mainstream media may have peddled the unsubstantiated claims so quickly.
