During a visit to The John Batchelor Show on Tuesday, Stephen Cohen, a contributing editor at The Nation, discussed the serious impact of the recent fighting in Ukraine.

“We’re in a fog of war—an expression coming from, I think, World War I, when news reports had become innacurate news reports—misinformation, disinformation from all sides,” Cohen said. “It fueled the war by fueling unwise political decisions. What we do know, though, is your listeners can pull out their calendars and mark down the fighting that began this weekend and continues today…as another fateful lost opportunity in this Ukranian Crisis.”
