And Now For Something Totally Different...or what to "Putin" the news and what to leave out

Pravda, which means "truth" was the official mouthpiece of the Soviet Union. Of course, the problem with such vehicles of official "truth" is when you start to believe your own lies. Of course here we have the corporate media, which although they may be free of official government control have their own set of values and inherent contradictions which too often make them...uhh...hard to swallow....except for Fox News of course. Hmmmm....Anyhow, you may enjoy reading Russia's official version of world events including of course the "invitation" to "liberate" South Ossetia from Georgian aggression. CP is certain of but one thing with the news. Where there is smoke, there is fire. And as a corollary, the truth is out there. Just how far "out there" is the problem. Perhaps the truth lies in the middle. Or perhaps it just lies.

Just as one example, consider this online poll the Russian news service is running:

What is the best way to resolve conflicts in the 21st century?
UN style: sanctions and peacekeepers
U.S. style: long well-advertised military operations
Russia style: quick penetration, fast withdrawal
Israel style: bomb your own to scare your neighbours

Does one laugh or cry? CP has one question about "Russia style". Does this leave the women unsatisfied?
