Dude, that's from the Daily mail. Take anything it says with a large grain of salt.

I have said long ago that the Daily Fail, just like The Sun, need to be shut down after the number of infringements they committed against journalistic integrity.

While this from daily mail news is questionable EU parliament voted a resolution to counter Russian "propaganda'.

Problem here is what do they consider 'propaganda'? The news that depict how Putin is awesome or the news that contradicts the ones they are feeding their own population with?

No matter how you look at this it is basically shutting up alternative view on news - a censorship if you will. Which is what USSR did during the Cold War to western news, how times change...

But good luck shutting down the internet, especially in liberal countries.

Thankfully the internet is a bitch to censor yes. But alarm bells should start ringing when any leader start saying parts of the media is 'wrong' and it needs 'controls'.

On a related note Russia seems to be getting rid of foreign internet sites recently, first was Pornhub a few months back and now more recently LinkedIn .... which makes you wonder were there going.

Pornhub, you say? My country already blocked such "inappropriate" site since last year.

By the way, do anyone saw how Kirby was being a D-bag towards the RT journalist in the State Dept?
