Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 16, 2018

Thirty-two-year-old Russian investigative journalist Maksim Borodin died suddenly over the weekend, his employer Novy Den confirmed on Monday. Authorities have described his death as a probable suicide, a narrative contested both by friends and Novy Den. Borodin was found underneath the balconies of his building in the city of Yekaterinburg on April 12 and died three days later without having recovered consciousness. According to the US government-funded Radio Free Europe, a policeman spokesman from Sverdlovsk Oblast said it was "unlikely that this story is of a criminal nature." Police said that the reporter's fifth-floor apartment was locked from the inside, and that there was no sign of a break-in. They added that no suicide note had been found.

I find it curious that reporters who write favorable things about the Russian government tend not to commit suicide.

If this reporter were Samoan he would have survived, but would have developed a speech impediment.

I knew a lawyer over there who fell on 20 bullets in the middle of the street in broad daylight with 20-30 witnesses...and no one saw a thing.

Meanwhile President Kennedy was assasinated and we let the Warren Commission lie to us and did nothing about it. It comes in to question the very premise that we actually do live in a free country.
