It is as if we are trying to save our lives, just as Jack Dawson in  Titanic, but unfortunately with the same tragic result seems likely. Thus, we must try to think how we can survive in the era of information wars.

Some of us believe firmly in the assumption of freedom of speech and independence of the media. But all too often the independence and objectivity of the global mass media look like McCafé Strawberry Shake: there is taste, but there is no strawberry.

The independence of state media is as real as smoke on the water; and no one would disagree with this statement. The independence of private media looks like a famous brand mark on the fake handbag: beautiful but with crooked seams inside.
