Kill the messenger

"According to (one) report, 1,000 news media personnel have died while covering the news around the world in the past 10 years, but only a quarter of them died in wars and armed conflicts."

Quick quiz: What country do these journalists come from?

A) Afghanistan
B) Iraq
C) Russia

If you answered C), you are correct.

"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." Remember that?

Fine. How about:

"Mr. Putin: Stop being a Tsarist, paranoid, Russian, dictatorial, bastard of a despot just like your predecessors son-of-a-bitch, and allow FREEDOM to have a REAL voice."

Just sayin'.
