Ukraine: Russia's chief propagandist | The Economist - http://www.economist.com/blogs/easternapproaches/2013/12/ukraine
Comment
"DURING a recent live broadcast from Kiev on Russian state television, a protester pushed his way onto camera. As the Russian reporter, standing in the middle of Independence Square, the stage of the latest protest in Kiev, tried to describe the scene, the protester handed him a little statue, resembling an Oscar. “Pass this Oscar to the Russian Channel and to Dmitry Kiselev [the anchor man, pictured] for the lies and nonsense you are telling people about Maidan,” he told him on air." ‎· silpol

"In 1999 Mr Kiselev deplored such degradation. At the time, he moralised about TV journalists and their difference from “agitators”. A true journalist, he explained, is someone who shows the whole picture. “People will, of course, swallow anything. But if we keep lowering the bar and drop morals we will, one day, find ourselves splashing in the dirt like pigs and eating each other, along with this dirt, and then we would not be able to sink any lower”. Mr Kiselev’s appointment indicates that this day has come." ‎· silpol
