The Russians are invading. The Russians invaded. The Russians might invade soon.

On November 12th a tsunami of big headlines once again crashed the Russian invasion of Ukraine across the world. Originally I was going to title this Can Big Media Survive Spreading Lies of 4 Star General Trying Bringing America Closer to War?

The only big stories I could find in the following collection of headlines is that the supreme allied commander of NATO lied. The New York Times, BBC, Vice News, Reuters, and the Guardian all fibbed. Since I have used a very strong word instead of misleading, misled, or they should have checked their sources, I need to back that statement with real facts.

Across the board all the journalists agree the same information is true. A ll of the larger media reporters accepted the statement of US 4 Star General, Commander of European Command, and 17th Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) of NATO allied command forces.

NATO's supreme allied commander confirmed The Daily Beast's report on Wednesday of Russian military tanks, artillery, and combat troops entering eastern Ukraine over the past two days. "Across the last two days we have seen the same thing that OSCE is reporting. We have seen columns of Russian equipment, primarily Russian tanks, Russian artillery, Russian air-defense systems and Russian combat troops entering into Ukraine," Gen. Philip Breedlove said. He said that they do not yet know how many. The linked article headlines with Thousands of Putin's Troops Now in Ukraine, Analysts Say .

The OSCE reports that correspond to the dates that the both the General and the MSM quote, read entirely different. Why didn't any of the highly paid professional journalists bother to read the OSCE reports just to fact check and see if the General left out anything important? The truth is they did. Some of the incorporated facts can't come from anywhere else.

The phrases used by the OSCE " the SMM observed a convoy of more than 40 trucks and tankers moving west on highway H-21(just east of Donetsk) and four T72 and five T64 -- moving west (inside Donetsk), also unmarked " was changed to "traveling away from the Russian border," "entering East Ukraine," and "from the direction of the Russian border" in the various articles.

What does the OSCE have to add that every reporter, editor, and military intel officer missed?

OSCE Summary -Military movement

At the two BCPs(Border Crossing Points) the OM(OSCE Mission) did not observe any military movement, apart from vehicles of the RF(Russian Federation) border guard service. No aircraft activity was observed at or in the vicinity of the BCPs.

From this we see that there was no military movement across the border. There were no tanks, artillery or troops sweeping in or attacking.

Donetsk- OSCE Summary

In the city of Donetsk and in Makeevka (25km north-east of Donetsk city), in "DPR"-controlled territory, the SMM observed convoys of heavy weapons and tanks. At the time of reporting, the SMM could hear heavy, outgoing shelling to the north and northwest of the city's outskirts, which had started at 14:45hrs.

We find the tanks and artillery in and around Donetsk. This is where the Ukrainians are shelling and Donbass is defending. It makes sense if you have tanks and artillery to keep them where you need them.
