Enemies of Alexander Lukashenko want victims and blood, in order to launch a Maidan scenario supported by the West, mostly Poland. However, the main component for this scenario is missing, a split in society and in the ruling establishment. The whole protest potential is 10% of voters for Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, and 4,6% who voted against all candidates. The protest organisers do not care that there is neither a dictator in Belarus nor a popular uprising, they need specific media coverage and larger external pressure. This happened in various colour revolutions and their unsuccessful attempts, including against Russia. It is unfair to blame Lukashenka for not wanting the complete unification with Russia. His historical function was to preserve two Russias, a Big and White ones.
One of the most popular is the myth of a free press of the West – and this despite the fact that a number of media outlets are directly funded by governments. This paradox is usually explained by the words “independent editorial policy”. The leaders of the leading American media were often people affiliated with the intelligence services.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western media, allegedly censorship in US media.
Freedom of the press in the United States is legally protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
There are media in the US that are funded by the government, but they are guaranteed from any interference.
For example, an essential guarantee of the journalistic credibility of Voice of America content is the “firewall” enshrined in the 1994 U.S. International Broadcasting Act. The firewall prohibits interference by any U.S. government official in the objective, independent reporting of news, thereby safeguarding the ability of our journalists to develop content that reflects the highest professional standards of journalism, free of political interference.
