5. Like the "Clinton body count" it is helpful to look into each one individual

Not to say Putin isn't personally involved in each & all of these

Four people have been convicted during a controversial trial for the murder of Sergei Yushenkov and are currently serving prison sentences. Most prominent among them is Mikhail Kodanev, a former co-chairman of the Liberal Russia party organized by Yushenkov himself. During the trial, Mikhail Kodanev strenuously claimed to be innocent. He later tried to commit suicide and was placed in the FSB's special Lefortovo prison. According to attorney Henry Reznick, Kodanev was convicted solely on the basis of the false testimony of another convicted suspect (Alexander Vinnik) who made a series of contradictory statements, including claims that Yushenkov was killed by the government.[7]

Critics also insisted that the political murders of two chairmen of the Liberal Russia party should have been considered as the same case in the court, which would make it clear that some of the suspects were wrongly accused.[8] Some observers noted that Kodanev was relatively unknown in Russian politics until he was named to Yushenkov's party by Boris Berezovsky, ostensibly to make a mockery of Vladimir Putin (Kodanev was nicknamed "Putin" because he looks very much like the President). Some Russian media claimed that it was Boris Berezovsky who organized the murder of Sergei Yushenkov through his agent Mikhail Kodanev.

Former FSB officer Aleksander Litvinenko suggested that Sergei Yushenkov could be killed because he knew that FSB organized the Moscow theatre hostage crisis,[9] consistent with a previous report by journalist Anna Politkovskaya.[10]


Regarding, the next one it is really hard to trust any of what is said & the most incriminating claims comes from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chechenpress ??

This one seems to point more to organized crime, do they need an order from Putin to do stamp out something in how it relates to itself?

Klebnikov joined the Forbes in 1989 and gained a reputation for investigating murky post-Soviet business dealings and corruption.[3] In 1996, he wrote a cover story for Forbes titled "Godfather of the Kremlin?", comparing Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky to the Sicilian mafia. The article was published without a byline, but was widely known to be Klebnikov's work. Klebnikov soon received death threats, and took a break from reporting in Russia to live with his family in Paris.[2]


OK regarding an assertion which comes from a claim of a "spy" interviewed on the BBC & they are very controversial. People should be BBC everytime their are numerous studies & their behavior regarding the "Balean report" prove BBC is biased

On 11/12/12, in Reporting Scotland, the programme opens with ‘Row over independence could lead to higher electricity bills’ then runs through a series of negative sound bites interspersed with SNP protest – ‘questions mount over independence’, ‘UK government claims cost could rise’, ‘Could Scots customers have to pay more?’, ‘Labour spokesman – danger’ before allowing the evidence of Scottish over-production, renewables and a captive market in England to cast serious doubt on the motivation for the initial headline ‘scare’.

Health-related matters were the other dominant theme. For example, on 27/9/12 the case of a Scottish patient seeking free care only available in England was highlighted and linked to the relative lack of GP control in Scotland. This began a mini-series of reports that day on alleged failings in the Scottish NHS by Reporting Scotland reporters and by Labour spokespersons. No balancing cases were reported of a flow in the other direction although such did appear in the popular press (‘Now English asthma patients are denied life-changing drug offered to Scots’, Daily Mail, 9/11/12). The use of single cases to suggest wider concerns is of course problematic.

Less typical but of interest in this evaluation of editorial decision making was:

- On 24/6/13 in STV at 6, the presenter, referring to a report from the ‘Scottish Institute’ offers unchallenged the notion that the Scottish armed forces ‘might have trouble recruiting due to lack of adventure’! The possibility of the reverse trend is not considered.


The above is a good one but I don't think any other news organization has so bias studies done on them or known reports where the BBC was full of shit.

Better evidence which the BBC is obviously biased in a list of "political opponents" when investigation reporting that mentions the mob could inspire the mob to do it themselves. I really don't think if he did all of them even if he did at-least 1.
