I keep reading on various blogs that this Russian Ukraine situation is just like the Iraq situation where we as the US…
"An adversary who has no problem allowing a news caster of theirs to easily say in this tense time: “Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,”(anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television)."
That’s OK, I guess Russia isn’t allowed to have freedom of speech? Cool.
So freedom of speech that is only allowed under specific parameters (I.e what Putin decides to promote,or his new favorite dictator movement) is no free speech at all. That means when that reporter said what he said, he had the approval of the Kremlin to threaten the US.
