Submission + - News must be at least 50% Doubleplusgood

Nymz writes: Russian journalists today learned of new rules regarding free speech (the acceptable type). Namely that 50% of reports about Russia must be positive (the government perspective type), and that criticism of Putin is considered extremism (the land you in jail type), and that America must be portrayed as an enemy (the elimination of free speech type). Expect these new rules to be applied liberally (the coming soon to online speech type). New York Times article.
