    A minor point, but it irks me to see a newspaper say “no words can describe” XYZ. If anybody should have the words, it’s a newspaper.

    Perhaps you would rather a government run newspaper like some countries.

    Contrary to some beliefs that alternative sources of media can replace the local newspaper, local newspapers play an important and unique role in proper functioning of the government and markets

    The top national TV networks are either state-run or owned by companies with close links to the Kremlin. The government controls Channel One and Rossiya 1 – the leading channels – while state-run energy giant Gazprom owns NTV.
