So, as you may know, pretty much everyone considers the Russian media to be not free or assasinated. Aware of this problem, Russians have decided to take a short cut in solving the problem. Instead of improving the quality of Russian news or providing any kind of safety for the ballsy journalists, the good folks at Moscow State University has decided to encourage critical reading of non-critical articles. That's right the university has developed a program for the city schools that will encourage students to “form a critical attitude to the mass media... [and] teach children how to separate useful from manipulative information.”
I would love to take a look at this curriculum.
