LAURA KNIGHT-JADCZYK AND JOE QUINN
Since the 9/11 attacks, no book has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out - until now.
"...we are rigorously law abiding. We take great care to insure that we don't infringe the outer aspects of the law. ...[I]n the eyes of the authorities we are a showcase for the West, demonstrating that Russia has free speech. And of course we exploit our position. ...[W]e have become a genuine source of information for people who make decisions. [...] The presidential administration and the White House bureaucracy [in Moscow] listen to our forum and look out for what happens in it. [On the topic of data] I have independent sources, which may coincide with what the Kremlin has to say, or may not. They check out our data - it's a kind of model for self-correction. I also think this may be what allows Ekho Moskvy to exist in the form it does.Nice self-propaganda, but at least he reveals his true allegiances: the West, i.e., the Anglo-Zionist empire, i.e., not Russia.
"Our job is to clarify what rights people have. (Question: Do you feel like the last bastion of free speech?) No. I feel like a professional. It seems to me that we are doing a professional job and we don't think in terms of free speech. We could see the threat. People started censoring themselves because no one wanted to end up on the streets...we didn't change our tone. Eighty-three percent of our listeners have been through higher education, [are] independent people; can't be forced to merge with the crowd...with a strong sense of self-esteem...are individualists. [...] We don't have a messianic mission - our job is to inform and entertain. [...] (Regarding self-censorship) It's fear. The new generation see it as the norm of course. ...they understand that one shouldn't allow oneself to do it, but they don't think why. This shouldn't be happening."
