Russian TV Reporter Resigns After Saying Truth

According to a Moscow Times article, Russian television is showing the misery left by the Georgian assault in South Ossetia, but few, if any, reports mention Russia’s bombing of Georgia.  After William Dunbar, a correspondent for the English-language state channel Russia Today, mentioned the bombing in a report on Saturday, his scheduled reports later that day were cancelled by the station. He said: “I felt that I had no choice but to resign.” He added: “I had a series of live, video satellite links scheduled for later that day, and they were cancelled. The real news, the real facts of the matter, didn’t conform to what they were trying to report, and therefore, they wouldn’t let me report it.”
