I was astonished by the one sided version of the world given to us at teatime today on the ITV teatime news.
ITV constantly referred to South Ossetia as being "a disputed territory" and "pro Russian province", but at no point made clear that it is an internationally recognised part of Georgia, not a part of Russia. When ITV News gave their account of how the recent troubles started they by implication made out that Georgia had attacked Russia and at no point explained that they were trying to recapture territory held by the Russians which was legally Georgian.
No wonder I watch the BBC news more often than ITV.
P.S. And any one who wants to debate why South Ossetia should not become independent of Russia because it's population wants to be independent, might I point out that Chechens also want to be independent, but Russia is not willing to accept the will of the people in their case.
