Drudge and Pravda: State-Owned Media Aligning Coverage

on

Whoever expected to see Matt Drudge promoting Pravda (Earth on the Brink of an Ice Age) as a favored and credible news source?

Of course, (sarcasm alert!) Pravda’s carefully considered and even-handed statesmanship (Obama: Deceiver, Cheat, Swindler, Liar, Fraudster, Con Artist) works well with the Drudge style, regardless that the Russian government’s official mouthpiece is better known for wishful thinking (Russia to retrieve its status of world’s strongest superpower) than believable reporting.

This, apparently, is the standard to which climate change denial has slipped.

Hat-tip to Crawford Kilian, and generally to commenters who, three days running, have provided links to stories that are worthy of their own DSB headline. Thanks all. Nice to have the comments back on line and especially nice to have people offering information rather than invective.
