So if this is indeed true then how do we get this information out to the masses? CNN isn't going to come right out and say they lied. And I seriously doubt any other MSM will do the same or tell on CNN. Because all the MSM I watched here in the states during this conflict were saying pretty much the same thing. So what do we do about this is we can do anything at all?

CNN LIES AGAIN: "Gori in ruins"? You decide! (made by RussiaToday channel)
Russia's ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin has dismissed media reports that the Georgian city of Gori is "in ruins." He called the allegations a "disinformation campaign" and pointed to the fact that Russian peacekeepers have in fact performed a humanitarian mission there.
Michael Moore calls out CNN and Wolf Blitzer for the lying scum that they are.
BBC and a lot of western media keep lying by saying Chinese news does not report disruption in torch relay. I heard this line repeated several times in BBC and some Canadian news network. CNN claim "Chinese are unaware of what is happening". They could have said China is putting a positive light or twist but no, they said it is NOT reporting so Chinese are ignorant and have no idea what is going on.
This video shows an actual Chinese news reporting both side. The worse you can accuse them of is putting positive spin.

Good find! I'm not a fan of CNN because I find it to be unapologetically biased and very liberal. I don't trust that they are reporting the news as it is - I believe they report events based on their spin of things.
I'll be interested to see how CNN tries to recreate reality to explain this situation they have created.

What more can we say?

I would be more concerned with Russia's intentions of trying to restore the old Soviet borders. All you have to do is look at the moves that they've made in the last 6 months to see what is going on. The Cold War is returning, folks, like it or not, and there isn't much anyone can do to stop it.

Here is an additional Russia Today video of their take on the Fox channel video:
They are accusing Fox of cutting her off deliberately when the 12 year old was thanking Russia, and when the statement was made about Georgia starting this war. I agree with those accusations. But no surprise here. He's obviously learned well from Sean Hannity.
