    Solov'ev vs. Pozner

    Question to Russians.
    A couple of days ago I was listening to V.Solov'ev and he said 'After Taffy I stopped to respect V. Pozner'. Could anyone tell me what happened at that Taffy?

    I guess, it was not "Taffy", but TEFI.

    ТЭФИ -- TV-competition, organised annually by Russian TV academy.
    Кр. -- сестр. тал.

    I can't remember the precised details, but I think some members of the Academy tried to use their awards ceremony to protest against government control over the media/ press by voting for shows (most political and current-events) that have recently been cancelled and taken off-air, supposedly at the behest of the Kremlin. Some of the Acadamey did so, others didn't, so presumably Messrs V.Solov'ev and V. Pozner' were in disagreement on the subject.

    Or perhaps I dreamt it.

    P.S. Those of you wondering how come - I pawned me TV licence.

    Yes I think so. But Mr.Solov'ev is't such an idiot. I don't believe he can stop to respect someone because of that disagreement and say it on the air. I think Mr. Pozner said something or did something at that TEFI. And my question is 'what was that 'something?'' Someone might have watched that TEFI... or have read about it...

    I read it http://9-04.olo.ru/news/culture/24698.html but didn't find any Pozner's 'crime'...
