Why would the USA murder anyone when they could just have the Media assassinate them?

Did the US not just pass a bill legalising the torture and indefinite detainment of any of its citizens guilty or not. The US is responsible for millions of innocent deaths and they are the ones who are killing people in the 'battlefields' of iraq.

No, in Russia, you only get murdered when you tell the truth about corrupt Russia.

Otherwise, RT news for example, does an excellent job of telling the truth on international issues.

Telling the truth will get you killed across the planet.

Some countries , like russia , just don't care who finds out.

It just makes no sense to me guys.

The last twenty years before 911 marked so much progress for Russia-China-American relations. Than POOF all gone, practically cold war era stuff going on now. We got spy plans crashing in hostile countries... Its amazing how all that progress just disappears.

Now is the time we rely on the media the most... Its also the time the media is most prone to corruption, faceless news reporting, and propaganda.

Agreed.
If you want to know what's happening in Russia, watch the BBC or random US news, but if you want to see what's happening in the UK or USA, go to RT.

Having said that, I've seen RT reporting on Putin being publicly booed, and showing his responses to public debate over the recent protests. So RT is already ahead of all our western media in my books.

RT was the only large news station reporting on OWS for several weeks while the US news networks, the BBC and Sky all ignored it. They also provide in-depth analysis of the financial drivers forcing the protests too, while no other news broadcaster goes beyond "they're unhappy".

There is no such hing as an unbiased news source. People should get their information from as many sources as possible and form their own conclusions.

In the USA, the press are simply arrested and detained, for reporting the truth. While the police and government try to have footage and information removed from the internet by Google.

While the USA or UK is not yet on a par with the likes of China or Russia, their response to the protests and their control and manipulation of media is certainly something they cannot hide, and that action does indeed cause reason to be concerned about public freedom and our rights as citizens.

I agree 100% RT ran an article the other day totally correcting a fox news broadcast. Fox news was trying to make the Russian protest look chaotic and dangerous.. american is clearly trying to oust putin or medelveve,,

I posted a thread on that instance if someone is interested RT article corrects fox news lies
