Pravada is back where it started

After a brief flirtation with free and honest reporting, the Russian media is back to it's bootlicking Soviet days. An example-

From Pravda a 'news' headline, "Russia: Again Savior of Peace and Life:"

The international community collectively held their breath waiting for the reaction of Russia after the savage, brutal, criminal attack by Georgia on South Ossetia. After having offered a ceasefire in hostilities, the back-stabbing Georgians immediately violated the ceasefire, invading South Ossetia and causing massive destruction and death among innocent civilians, among peacekeepers and also destroying a hospital.
