You have to know (just by reading it) that was written by a Commie or a Democrat. They always play up that greedy class-envy crap. I pray that there isn't really that much envy in our country.

My God, this Pravda reporter had everything (that I have knowledge of) exactly right (I managed to read the first third of the story). How come we can't get that kind of penetrating coverage domestically?

Strange how factually correct the article is. And mostly unbiased. What am I missing? I've never read Pravda before. I read a couple of other articles. I guess I'm shocked at the level of writing. It's certainly better than what gets presented in contemporary American media. Has Pravda always been like this? I bookmarked the site for further reference.

Like Arock I am amazed by my time spent reading Pravda. Hell of a note when a Russian newspaper is this much better than our own piss poor attempts!!!!!!1 I will be spending a LOT more time reading it in the future!!

I love Russian news. They are totally removed from American financial influence in the press, and most Russians deeply admire America and Americans. (Kind of like the opposite of France.)They tend to unravel our bullshit very well! I really appreciate being able to read our news from them because they expose staged news events that the government whips up to change public opinion. You'll be needing this link more in the future, so knock it over into "favorites".Russian democracy is only ten years old, and its quite different than American democracy. When American democracy was founded there was nothing here.Wide open land. My great grandfather drove a wagon into North Dakota and was deeded the family farm for planting trees on the land. Now the banks and corporations run it. When communism fell everyone there was deeded the home they were living in.They don't have class domination and they are taking steps to control it.Pravda translated is "Truth".

I prefer this story from the pravda site:
Pravda.RU:Hot spots:More in detail 20:13 2001-10-18 US AND BRITAIN CLOSE THEIR MISSIONS IN BOSNIA OVER MUSLIM THREATS A mission of the World Bank in Bosnia and Herzegovina /BAH/ in Sarajevo stated on Thursday that it was temporarily closing down for considerations of safety, because of threats from Muslims. On the day before the US and British embassies announced their closure, the reason being information about a "very serious threat for safety" on the part of the population. The US embassy and its consulate in Mostar and Banja-Luka are shut down for an indefinite period, as is the British consulate and cultural centre in Sarajevo. Although representatives of both embassies refused to give the details of these threats, a source close to the British diplomatic mission remarked that this step was occasioned "by threats connected with an armed attack on Afghanistan".

My, what an interesting article. Who would have ever believed you would find something like that in a RUSSIAN publication? Is that a clock I hear ticking?[IMG]http://www.ukobservers.net/cwm/contrib/sarge/Oogle_anim.gif[/IMG]

Hey -- I wrote that article for Pravda. Let me just say that I am neither a Communist nor a Democrat (though the Russian Communist Party is not the same party ideologically as the one that committed the Stalinist atrocities) -- I am also not a "fascist hard-right" whatever as a number of US "anti-hate" groups claim. My name is Bill White. Politically I have been all over the map -- I started on the very far left but have also worked on the very far right. Last year I worked for Pat Buchanan's election campaign for quite a while, and then helped the Maryland Constitution Party run a candidate for Congress. I am a member of GOA and a supporter of the Tyranny Response Team. I was, frankly, amazed when Pravda asked me to write for them, but since the Bolshevik revolution and the Stalinist purges they have become a very patriotic pro-Russian organization that is much more in line with the American "right-wing" than the decadent American liberal-left and phony neo-conservative right. Those who are interested may want to check out some other stuff I've written for Pravda: AMERICAN MEDIA USES DISINFORMATION TO GUIDE POLICY http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/10/11/17799.html AMERICAN JEWISH LOBBY FEARS DECLINE IN INFLUENCE http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/10/04/17101.html and 5000 DEMONSTRATE AGAINST WAR IN WASHINGTON: COMMUNIST LED DEMONSTRATION DRAWS CONFRONTATION http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/10/01/16684.html
