Russia Today has received criticism for its close ties with the Russian state authorities   and a few years after the channel started broadcasting, for being a "cheerleader" of the Kremlin, applying positive spin to reports about governmental institutions and refraining from criticizing Prime Minister and former Russian president Vladimir Putin or the government. A CBS News story quoted Moscow-based sociologist and political commentator Boris Kagarlitsky as saying that Russia Today was "very much a continuation of the old Soviet propaganda services". Western commercial media, including The New York Times, routinely called it "state-run".

I wonder just how many suicides and divorces are occurring in America, with the recession and job losses, I mean, there's an public figure of the numbers and a 'secret' figure of the numbers.
It's just unbelievable that the media is not reporting increased suicides or high cases of divorces, men who have lost trophy wives to the economy... etc.
We are really lucky though, that our Main stream Medias are not puppets or parrots from our governments, like it is the case in totalitarian countries isn't ?
