It was the biggest story in the world…until it wasn’t. Remember Ukraine? Their war with Russia that has turned into a proxy war between us and Russia, for reasons no one can really explain was THE story just about 20 minutes ago. Now, it’s gone. Well, largely gone, though not from the lives of the people directly impacted, just from the US media. Why? Because, at the moment at least, it can’t help Democrats, and if the liberal elite media doesn’t think something can help Democrat it might as well not exist.
What was happening while the war in Ukraine was dominating the majority of cable news minutes and newspaper ink? Inflation numbers were skyrocketing and the supply chain disaster was adding to the problem. The last thing anyone in the “campaign consultant with a press pass” class wanted to do was talk about how things were for average Americans. The war was a great distraction.
Honestly, did you care about Ukraine before the invasion? Do you care about Ukraine now? Your first answer is probably no, but it’s likely yes now. Why? Aside from human decency and not wanting to see people killed, you’ve been convinced that Ukraine matters
