I hope this only goes out once, but my mail is acting up, sorry if multiple copies appear

Well, I was fortunate enough last night to see an hour or so of Serbian Television - a news broadcast. It was quite sad. I had actually thought that propaganda would be subtle, that there would be room for interpretation, that the perspective would at least be malaebale to the viewer. Boy was I wrong. The news as far as i could tell was completely state run propaganda. According to this broadcast, the Serbians are being merciful and helpful to the Ethnic Albanians while the "Evil NATO led by the corrupt and immoral USA" is deliberatley wiping out the Albanians as the beginning of their planned total invasion and take over of Yugoslavia. The broadcast also noted how Yugoslavia is shooting down NATO planes, NATO has been launching attacks against Macedonia, and Albania is trying to take over Kosovo to expand their evil Muslim presence.
Suffice it to say that whatever doubts I had about the fairness of our news have been calmed.
