Kazakh “Bloggers” Program Gets to the Real News

Kazakhstan's online program Блогеры (bloggers), presented by Angela Garipova does [ru] a good job of covering socially relevant themes that the country's state-directed media doesn't always get to via funky footage and the views of Kazakhstani social media users. This week the program looked at the decision of the regional government of Karaganda to rename the city's Soviet-sounding streets after Kazakh heroes, a local court fining a pensioner for living off wild garlic and onions, and (more trivially) a Colombian sheep football tournament.(N.B. That is sheep playing sport, rather than a sport played with sheep).
