    Regular,

    This is an excerpt from a RIA Novosti "news" story "published" by "them" earlier today.

    "... China's space program is an enormous source of pride for the country, the third to carry out a lunar soft landing — which does not damage the craft and the equipment it carries — after the United States and the former Soviet Union. The last one was by the Soviet Union in 1976. ..."

    If you don't mind, here are a few questions.

    When an uninformed person reads this paragraph, which country, do you think, he/she would think achieved the "first" soft landing on the moon?

    Do you think the design of this paragraph was merely accidental, or it was purposefully crafted by some entity to achieve the effect I think it was supposed to achieve?

    If you think the design of this paragraph was just accidental, then why all of RIA Novosti articles are similarly designed to achieve similar effects?

    You didn't have to be a genius to see that RIA Novosti was run by the so called liberals (russophobes) and it's editorial policy was skewed in that direction. I was banned for posting critical comments on a couple of their crappy articles/oppinion pieces....so much for their freedom of speech.

    If they want to spread anti Russian propaganda they can get employment in any opposition rag or western media outlet (they'll fit right in), not get paid for by the Russian state....good riddance! I'm only surprised it took as long as it did to get rid of them.

    I wouldn't say it was pro-Western at all.

    Anyway, Shoigu announced the formation of a new military news agency a few days back. He's a smart man and had you people in mind and covered already.

    Agreed, just because the editorials criticised some ministry policy doesn't make it pro-Western.  It makes it less biased. Now it is going to be another controlled state mouthpiece.

    Criticising for the goal of appearing independent, or just to appear to be open minded is not a good thing.

    However some criticism where criticism is due... criticism to improve the way things are done rather than just finding someone to blame for problems or delays is healthy and valuable.

    You can find plenty of stories about the damage having yes men around a leadership or management team can do... it is very destructive and results in bad decisions being made.

    A good example for this forum and any other forum in fact... there is a difference between a troll and someone who just doesn't agree with you... trolls are a pain in the a$$, but people who have different beliefs make for discussions that are more interesting.

    I hate to say this, but I doubt that Finland is high priority for a channel like RT. Is there any other way you could watch it? (There is always the website.)

    Well how many people speak finnish? For broadcasting news to counter anglo saxon and zionistic propaganda you have to reach high amount of people and i doubt finnish language will cover a lot of people.

    So that basically means you need to cover english,spain,french,german and arabic the biggest numbers of people who are occupied by anglo saxon and zionistic propaganda right now. Chinas CCTV couldn't reach big audience, even tho they are already far better than anything the west can offer, Press TV is also far better than what the west can offer but they are banned over hotbird satiltes in most europe and have a rather small audience abroad.

    Very Good news for us: A new independant wikipedia implemented by Russia

    Post  nemrod on Fri Nov 21, 2014 2:15 pm

    I was reluctant to post that topic into Russia affaires, as it concerned the world wide, and especially a direct rival to wikipedia. I've been regularly complaining about wikipedia, and its pretended impartiallaty. Just a couple of minutes before I learned this news, I was about to post a new topic about the battle of Phase Line Bullet, and the strange US ' assertions in particular regarding the US arguments concenring M1 Abrams that would destroyed several T-72, against 0 tanks losses for US.


    Immediatly, after the news, US and western leaders enraged
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/11/17/putinpedia-russia-will-create-alternative-to-wikipedia-amid-putin-internet-crackdown/
    They called it PutinPedia. Putinpedia ? Why ? Is Wikipedia objectiv ? I and my friends often complaining about the politics of Wikipedia.
    Now, we will a true reference about recent/old/present/future events, more neutral point of views rather than the only one POV of Wikipedia.

    Its name will be Citizendium.

    Very, very good news for us all. Thx Russia.

    PS: Undoubtly, other projects will be implement next by Russia, China, Brasil, India concerning the Internet. 2015 will be the beginning of the end for US empire, begining with their soft power as wikipedia is ones.

    Putin praises TASS for chance to meet heads of international news agencies

    "You are here not only as observers but also as participants in the event," Russian president told news agencies’ heads

    ST. PETERSBURG, June 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday expressed his gratitude to TASS news agency for the opportunity to meet top executives of the world's largest international news agencies. The meeting took place on the second day of the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in Russia’s second city.

    "I would like to thank TASS, our oldest news agency, for having launched this initiative last year," said Putin. He also thanked everyone who attended the meeting "for taking part in the forum". "You are here not only as observers but also as participants in the event," he told news agencies’ heads.

    Putin offered his apologies for the delay in the meeting, which was expected to start at 9:00 p.m., according to TASS. He explained that "my colleagues who arrived at the forum have a strong desire to discuss current issues and problems, and it is difficult and almost impossible to interrupt them mid-sentence". "That is why one meeting ran over into another with corresponding delays," he said. "I am very glad to see you and talk about the issues that concern you."

    The Russian leader’s meeting with heads of leading international news agencies, participating in a media summit as part of the St. Petersburg forum, is being held for the second consecutive year. Such format of talks between global media representatives was launched by TASS.

    Besides the organiser of the meeting - Russia’s TASS news agency, participants this year include top executives of eleven international news agencies - Britain's Press Association and Reuters, Germany’s DPA, India's Indo-Asian News Service, Spain's EFE, Italy’s ANSA, Canada’s Canadian Press, China's Xinhua, the U.S. Associated Press, France's AFP and Japan's Kyodo news agency.

    World of Tanks may provoke suicide? Russian media watchdog probing popular game

    A Russian media watchdog, which has recently banned the Pornhub adult website and threatened to banish Wikipedia and Reddit, is currently investigating one of the forum pages of the popular online game, World of Tanks.

    Roskomnadzor announced on Facebook and Twitter that it had received a request to look into one of the massively popular online game’s forum pages, which features 20th century combat vehicles.

    “According to the plaintiff, one of the forum’s pages has information on methods of committing suicide. We are analyzing the content to determine whether it contains illegal information,” it said.

    Roskomnadzor caused quite a stir earlier in September when it banned the Russian-language version of Pornhub and 10 other websites on the grounds that they were deemed harmful to minors. "Go and make friends in real life instead of watching X-rated films,” it stated.

    In August, it briefly banned the Russian-language version of Wikipedia over an entry about cannabis that a court earlier ruled contained illegal information. The ban was lifted just a few hours later, and Roskomnadzor said the Wikipedia article in question had been edited to comply with regulations.

    Also in August, Roskomnadzor warned that news story-sharing site Reddit may also be blocked by some internet providers in the country over a thread about “growing drug-containing plants.”

    Opposition MPs call for all Russian media to report foreign funding

    A fresh bill drafted jointly by all opposition parliamentary parties requires Russian media to inform the state watchdog about any money received from foreign sources, or face fines and closure.

    According to popular business daily Kommersant, the bill provides for amendments to the Russian Law on Mass Media and the Administrative Code, and orders all companies registered as mass media outlets to report any financing from foreign sources within a 30-day period. Violation of this rule would lead to confiscation of the sum received from abroad and fines of between 30,000 and 50,000 roubles ($470-$780) levied on the top managers of the media company. Repeated violations would lead to a court ruling revoking the mass media license of the company.

    The demands do not apply to money received for advertising.

    “Currently, certain countries are increasing their pressure on the Russian mass media through economic leverage, oppressive agencies and so-called ‘rulings of judicial bodies.’ At the same time, we see attempts to directly influence the Russian information space through extending foreign grants to Russian mass media in order to cause biased reporting and create a distorted picture of political reality,” the explanatory note attached to the draft bill says.

    “If someone transfers money from abroad, our citizens must know about it. There is a lot of negative information about Russia right now. I am not against objective coverage, but when they start to inflate tensions it becomes bad,” said one of the MPs who drafted the bill, Vadim Kharlov, of the center-left Fair Russia party.

    Communist Party MP Aleksandr Yushchenko dismissed allegations that the new bill could become a censorship tool and noted that it was important to oppose the bias of certain lobbying groups that use money to attract journalists to their side. “Information is not just traded goods, it is a weapon and we must remember this,” he said.

    The new bill is similar to the Russian “Law on Foreign Agents” introduced in 2012, which orders all NGOs engaged in politics and receiving any funding from abroad to register as foreign agents or risk substantial fines. Groups with “foreign agent” status are banned from sponsoring Russian political parties, but otherwise their activities are not restricted.

    The Foreign Agents Law caused a lot of controversy and protests since its preparatory stage. Russian and international NGOs have criticized the new law as discriminatory and contested it in Russian courts and in the European Court of Human Rights, but with no result. The sponsors of the act and top Russian officials have repeatedly emphasized that its main purpose was to provide better information for voters that would eventually benefit democracy.

    Earlier this month, President Vladimir Putin allowed for some corrections to the NGO foreign agents law, but said that they would concern more precise definitions of the terms used in it with the general scheme left intact.

    When one doesn't have facts and realities on his side, and only propaganda, there is only one way he can follow: preventing the truth from spreading. 30 years ago this was the path the USSR was in, now it is the West. Russia doesn't need to revoke the licenses for CNN, BBC, RFE/RL, etc, because Russians know that almost everything they tell is a lie. But the West will need to do something regarding Russian media, especially RT which is the most popular in the West. Sooner or later it will happen.
