Pravda on Democracy in America

The comedy news channel Russia Today is always worth watching for five minutes if you need to be reminded how good CNN, Sky News, BBC or even Fox News is.

The story Russia Today is running with today is how undemocratic the US is for not giving Ralph Nader equal coverage with Obama and McCain, with the under current of the story being that the US is not a good democracy because it does not allow candidates equal access to the news media.

The hypocrisy of this reporting, especially given the international recognised bias in the Russia elections when opposition candidates were almost completely blocked from news media, shows just what an utter hypocrisy it is for a one party state owned news channel especially like the one quote they got from an American voter, who said "it shows what a sham democracy we live in".

You couldn't make it up. Pravda never went away.
