We’ll take a close look at media coverage of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We’ll review the front pages of The New York Times since the invasion. We’ll focus on the headlines, display photographs and lead stories.

We will also discuss the decision of some news outlets to leave Russia, implicit bias in media coverage and what the war looks like on Russian State Media, Chinese State Media and Fox News.

This Sunday's paper also has a special report in NYT Metro on the appearance and disappearance of bilingual street signs in New York City's Chinatown.

Every week, we review the print edition of the Sunday New York Times, taking audience comments and interviewing special guests.
