Russia's response

Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Submitted by Jacob Olidort (United States), Aug 2, 2005 at 20:56

Dear Dr. Pipes,

You made a very important point about the so-called "rules of engagement" for the media regarding sensitive topics such as terrorism.

You probably heard this by now, but the the Kremlin responded today to the ABC interview with Basayev by banning ABC programming from Russian television and by barring the station from interviews with any Russian government official.

I apologize for the source used, but the CNN article can be found at the following link.
