Mass media

I have now to say that many English language Western mass media such as CNN of FoxNews are extremely biased in terms of portraying recent Georgia / South Ossetia conflict (and most likely moreover). The notorious FoxNews incident with the girl called Amanda (link for those not familiar) confirms that: some idols of Western Democratic culture such as “freedom of speech” are quite easily ignored when some bodies such as American Government need that. I have to state that CNN purportedly erroneusly represented the warfare as Russian aggression whereas there was no actual Russian initial aggression in that case.

Russian mass media often are also biased, but that is not the subject of this post.
