Default Springtime for Putin and Russia

Moscow (CNN)Russia's parliament has advanced strict new internet laws allowing the authorities to jail or fine those who spread fake news or disrespect government officials online.
Under the proposed laws, which still await final passage and presidential signature, people found guilty of spreading "indecent" posts that demonstrate "disrespect for society, the state, (and) state symbols of the Russian Federation," as well as government officials such as President Vladimir Putin, can face up to 15 days in administrative detention for some offenses.Private individuals who post "fake news" can be hit will small fines of between $45 and $75, and legal entities face much higher penalties of up to $15,000, according to draft legislation.The anti-"fake news" bill -- which passed the Duma, or lower house of parliament, on Wednesday, according to an official legislative tracker -- also compels internet service providers to block access to content "which offends human dignity and public morality."


It defines fake news as any unverified information that "threatens someone's life and (or) their health or property, or threatens mass public disorder or danger, or threatens to interfere or disrupt vital infrastructure, transport or social services, credit organizations, or energy, industrial, or communications facilities."

Will Trump, the enemy of fake news, send a congratulatory letter to his boss Vlad when this "law" has been signed?

Please name a bill sponsored by Democrats to censor the news.

I bet you are referring to Democrats' decision not to participate in primary debates organized by the Faux. That is their decision to make and is not censorship. Let me know when a Democrat tries to kick any journalist, even a Faux journalist, out of a press conference, or when a Democrat calls the press enemies of the people.

Stelter quotes a top White House staffer: “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,” she says. “We don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

Stelter didn’t write those words about President Donald Trump, and the rogue media organization isn’t Stelter’s current employer, CNN. Nor is the White House aide defending the strategy of open hostility from Sarah Huckabee Sanders or Kellyanne Conway.

Stelter wrote those words in 2009, for The New York Times, and he wrote them about President Barack Obama, who was then in the midst of furious battle with Fox News. In many ways, it was a protracted fight that presaged the one Trump is now waging against CNN and the rest of the mainstream media.

I know you have a time reading for comprehension. Perhaps TV helps?

Wait, Putin bans fake news that the democrats complain caused them to lose the 2016 Presidential election and the same democrats decry it is a problem that Putin banned it.

RIM was against fake news before he was for it?

You canít make this **** up.

No ****. Hey OP, how many hours a day would you say you spend with that pair of brain cells banging around in the otherwise empty space thinking (and I use the word "thinking" very loosely) about Donald Trump? Is it 12? 14?

Hell, he probably owns your dreams for the full 24 at this point.
