Mr. Bancroft-Hinchey, I started reading the online version of Pravda about a month and a half ago - at first I thought I would at least get the view point of another set of journalists than just the coverage we all see here in America. Some of your reporters write some interesting articles, but in general, Pravda reads like a bizarre Russian version of the National Enquirer - this is not a compliment. Your editorials, specifically, are especially specious. You tell the truth about as well as Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf - that is propaganda with little or no truth. You have such a gift in this online news source, but no one will take you seriously if you ignore facts. I sincerely wish you good luck in the future - however, it will be minus one hopeful American. I had hoped that your online news source would be a place of integrity and a source for people like myself to read credible foreign journalism - journalists who might help the world read the truth - not become another in a cluster of propaganda machines simply working to push a national agenda or ideology.
Jay Freer PS - Bancroft-Hinchey doesn't sound very Russian?
