Everyone in the Western world has read about "Putin's propaganda" in Russia. We are supposed to believe that Russian domestic news are nothing but lies and pro-Putin agitation...
I want to hear what Russians think.
How reliable are newspapers like Izvestia, Kommersant and Rossiskaya Gazeta? What about news channels, i.e. Vesti/Rossia24 and LifeNews?
Do they report what you perceive as the real problems in society? Do you feel that they are covering things up? Do they report critically about the government and local authorities?
Do they expose corruption, pollution and abuse?
Do you want them to?
If you do not trust mainstream media, what alternative sources do you use for Russian domestic news?
What do you think of media in UA/BY/KZ?
(And I am not saying this as criticism against Russia - I believe we have a serious problem with news reporting in Europe. Plus - I am a fan of RT and Sputniknews. However, if I turn on Rossiya24 I cannot determine whether they are in tune with local news in Russia, or not - since I don't know the conditions well enough, or public opinion in Russia)
