It’s entirely possible to be angry about elements of the US media not giving certain voices any airtime, while also being very angry about Putin’s murder of journalists — which is a rather more extreme and serious no-platforming of voices — and be uncomfortable with people taking money from a mouthpiece for such a regime.

A pity the original author seems so vexed about the former, but dismissive of the latter.
