South Ossetia: Information blackout of Russian views?

Remetalk's Journal [Russian] writes about the information blackout Russian officials feel they are experiencing when trying to get their message through in Western media. As one Foreign Ministry official said: “We would like it if Western TV-screens showed not only Russian tanks, not only reports on how Russia brought troops onto South Ossetian territory, that Russia is at war with Georgia, but also the suffering of the Ossetian people – dead elderly and children – villages razed to the ground, a Tskhinvali destroyed to the last stone.”
