No, you don't. You pay no attention to the concrete, factual, or real life situation; instead you compare various presumed propaganda feeds balanced according to your a priori assumptions of bias. That's what you say you do, remember? and that's what your posts exhibit. You have never, for example, read the Mueller report. You have never posted any information from an accurate or even fact-based source of US political information, campaign rhetoric analysis, or news feed. We were discussing the murder of journalists by powerful political and economic entities - why are you changing the subject? Meanwhile, assuming the murder of journalists has been reduced in proportion: That's normal for the aftermath of a mob war, when the winner imposes order. You can find similar statistics in various SA, MA, and Mexican regions, for example, before and after one of the cartels wins. Likewise in the mob-associated US cities, or ones with corrupt police forces. Putin won the mob war, now he's the boss and imposes order. Sometimes he has to kill journalists, of course, but not as often as in the past - Russian journalism has learned its lesson, and is under control now. Defame? You continue to misuse propaganda terms as if you had never been corrected. You just told us that Putin was not interested in governing Siberia or the Caucuses well, or even interfering with known bad government in his country as long as it supported his agenda. That is not independent of good or bad government - it is bad government. You would expect high murder rates among "natives"? Yet another characteristic you share with US Republican voters, and fascists in general. No wonder you can't comprehend racism and slavery in US politics and history - you've chosen government by slaveowners. That requires and establishes a blind spot on your perceptions, familiar to US citizens. (For example: the people you call "European" are "natives" of Russian regions with lower murder rates as well as higher ones. Your inconsistent use of the term is familiar in the US).
