For many Americans you can now catch live coverage of the Georgia-South Ossetia crisis on the Kremlin’s Engilsh language service Russia Today. The MHZ Networks offers Russia Today as a free channel to residents in the Washington, DC area, and Russia Today is free to air on many satellites over the US. If you don’t have one of those services, you can also catch Russia Today’s Youtube Channel
Now, being a Russian channel, you’ll hear some stuff like:
* “We must stop the slaughter of Russians”
* “Russia will not tolerate deaths of compatriots”
and you won’t hear about Russian warplanes being involved or any resupply of South Ossetians from Russian territory.
But still, given that the US media is focused on the Olympics or the bus crash in Texas today (12 dead) at least you’ll get to hear something about what is going on (and lots and lots of live video).]]>
