John Bass, to destroy Georgian Media in setting up new supply route to Afghanistan
IN REF: Private Message
“So what's your analysis of recent events? First they strangle the newspapers, then Maestro - or are the opposition misreading this? Maybe Kitsmarishvili, formerly of Rustavi2 and Ambassador to Russian Federation, was imagining himself as the next president, and can't stand the sight of Ivanishvili and his popularity??
And to John Bass: Would he or anyone else in the US government DARE says something like that to American media? He said they need to know how editorial decisions are made, and that also applies to internet news. Let's see how the Huffington Post would have liked to let the government have more insight into their editorial process.I don't quite understand what Bass is talking about, but it's clearly an imperialist point of view. It is part of the normal work of media to do what Maestro TV has been doing. The media is another part of society than government and NGOs, and neither have ANY right to lecture journalists like that. Freedom
