From suppressing the campaigns of rivals to this.

No wonder Bush liked what he saw in Putins soul.


50% Good News Is the Bad News in Russian Radio
MOSCOW, April 21 — At their first meeting with journalists since taking over Russia’s largest independent radio news network, the managers had startling news of their own: from now on, they said, at least 50 percent of the reports about Russia must be “positive.”

In addition, opposition leaders could not be mentioned on the air and the United States was to be portrayed as an enemy, journalists employed by the network, Russian News Service, say they were told by the new managers, who are allies of the Kremlin.


Registration required, but worth the read.
It goes into how to tell what is "good" vs "bad" news. heh.

I'm showing this to some people who tell me the news needs to be "more balanced."
(They're convinced the media is holding back the good stories about Iraq.)
