Editor's note: Each week,  Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) takes on the media's biggest blunders. This week on FAIR TV, they take a look at how The New York Times printed inaccurate photos concerning Russians in Ukraine — and then failed to correct it. They also take on MSNBC's Meet The Press' assertion that Obama is 'weak' on foreign policy and CNN's complete insensitivity to drone victims.

Watch their new episode below:

Janine Jackson is the program director of FAIR, and the co-host and co-producer of FAIR's syndicated radio show CounterSpin—a weekly program of media criticism airing on more than 150 stations around the country.
