New blog – российская-федерация
New blogs seem to be lurching to life faster than I can keep up. One of the most recent is российская-федерация, by Heribert Schindler, seems to be majoring on relations between Russia and Germany.
But the post that really caught my eye was this one, which obliquely discusses anti-Russian sentiments, both within blogs and the wider media, by reference to James Bond films.
So why am I speaking of a �war of the words� ? The more I follow the coverage of Russia in the media, the more I am convinced that there is a system behind it. I am convinced that, just like the fictional �Carver Media Group� in the movie I can�t get out of my mind, there is simply business behind the covering of Russia.
A business which isn�t really interested in providing a balanced coverage of the actual situation and the events in Russia. As to the commercial media I am inclined to accept that the negative tendency towards Russia is inspired by our money, money the media tycoons want to have.
And that’s just his criticism of the media.� Wait til he gets started on the bloggers…
