Russian broadcast news - even more biased than the BBC

(One fairly major broadband outage later).

The New York Times has an odd one: quotas for good news on Russian broadcast media - "at least 50 percent of the reports about Russia must be “positive.

And what counts as positive?: "If the stock market is up, that is positive. The weather can also be positive."

Furthermore, "opposition leaders [must] not be mentioned on the air and the United States [is] to be portrayed as an enemy".

Applying this to British broadcast news, a day of stock market falls, hail storms, not to mention war, famine, pestilence and death might result in an awful lot of coverage of skateboarding ducks and the like.

Surely the Bourse being up is bad news for commos? Or are they the new market liberal commos like ex-Red Ken and his merry (wimmin &) men?
