    Yes but there is a fine difference. When the choice is between pro-American propaganda and reporting something Anti-Russian (like even something American media would not want to report) Anti-Russian stance wins on Russian TV. That is why something about Russia praised by American media most likely will be portrayed differently by Russian TV here in NY.

    And look, nobody is to blame for any of this. Most Russian immigrants in America feel they were discriminated against in Soviet Union and feel Israel is their second love after America. So, naturally, they want to see these kinds of news.

    matclone,

    Found this at the very end of NY Times article:

    But Yeltsin disappointed Russians by failing to bring political, economic and social stability to the nation. Many were outraged, as well, by his sale of the nation's industrial might and natural resources in shadowy auctions, by the disintegration of the public health care system and by pensions that turned to cinders in the fires of raging inflation.
