They even found some guy giving a nazi salute to include in the article. He might have been hailing for another round of drinks but that certainly wouldn't help the pravda.

They do not give a monkies about ordinary people, so far as they can use them to further their own careers and financial gains. That is why they are so resistant to Brexit, it could impact their bottom line and retirement plans!
