Swiss and Latvian Television Programming
A posting by Viking Pundit on Swiss TV confirms that he who controls the news media controls the world, and of course he who controls the money controls the news media. Oil, anyone?
For a similar experience, the Law Pundit was just in Latvia and was astonished to see that almost all TV programming is made in Moscow and in the Russian language, even though the Latvians have their own TV channels – but apparently not yet the financial means – to produce sufficient programming in their own language.
Much has, however, changed in Latvia in recent years, while Riga is once again becoming the Paris of the East, but more about that later.
