USA orders the Globe
Recent events clearly show that whatever masses hear is controlled. US and EU keep calling for free media in Russia, but its again just to give us an opinion about the "enemy". No one considers in the western word the conflict in Georgia. No media even mention Kosovo in the same time when talking about South Ossetia. Wikipedia writes about Abhasian genocide whereas half of their population was slaughterred by Georgians.
CNN rules, Russia Today is watched by none. History (present) is always written by the stronger/winner.
My only question whether its really our interest? Is it good for eg. Europeans to serve the US foreign policy? EU will never grow out of the US shadow if it continues like this. Is it good for ALL of us to have one opinion created by one party?
Its simple microeconomics. If you have competition you get better value.
