The television station.  It's a sensational story, they get more viewers 
for their newscast.  Who the hell cares if it's true, as long as people are 
watching?  Take a look at the _SF Examiner_: today's front-page story is a 
wire story about racy fashions for pre-teens.

NTV was recently taken over by the state gas monopoly, and all the real 
journalists left (if I recall the situation correctly).  If the _Weekly 
World News_ were covering the case, they might run something like that, too.

David Shapiro: You know what you doing.  Free Dmitry!  For great justice.
