Poynter’s Morning Update on Ukraine and Russia

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

Lester Holt’s opening

“Good evening. As our regular viewers know, we often caution before a particularly disturbing or graphic piece of video runs. Tonight, let me warn you from the start — many of you will want to look away for our top story. It’s about the unspeakable trail of horror retreating Russian forces left behind in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha. Bodies in the streets, evidence of summary executions, torture, mass graves filled with bodies, reports of rape. Late tonight, Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy saying more than 300 people were killed and tortured in Bucha. Moscow claims it’s all staged, calling the images a provocation. Earlier today, President Zelenskyy toured the carnage in Bucha for himself, saying it will be recognized by the world as genocide. And so tonight, while we may want to look away, it is becoming harder and harder to close our eyes to what’s happening.”
