FOX, lies & the wrong videotape: What’s NOT happening in Moscow

E-mail Print PDF

Now, even though FOX news has kindly told us that this is, in fact, Moscow – as a Muscovite, one glance is enough to tell me it's NOT. First of all, the phone box – ours are a greyish-blue, and are few and between. In fact, I can’t even remember the last time I saw a public phone box, let alone anyone using it.

Secondly, the people in the background – the young couple pressed against the building? They’re dressed in jeans and long-sleeved tees.

It’s December. In RUSSIA. No one in their right mind would go to a rally (where most of the time, a lot of standing around is involved) in a tee shirt. People here wear thermals, ski jackets, hats and gloves – the works. Stereotypes are based on fact, you know – and Moscow is very cold in December.

But even if all of this isn’t enough to convince you – and believe me, I do not want you to just take my word for it, here is my final argument.
