- Tend do walk the 40 meters from my bed to lecture.
Norwegian broadcaster NRK did a story about the mysterious - and made up - death of a refugee. I'm sure you're familiar with the story.I believe I mentioned this case a few pages before. It was apparently used and blown out of proportion mainly by Russian media, presumably motivated by the Russian political leadership in order to make propaganda against refugees and to discredit the German behavior in the crisis.
In it, a Russian journalist is quoted, saying something along the lines of "yeah, it's probably not true, but I'll file a story none the less, this is the kind of story our press bureaus want right now."
Seriously, never believe a single word about any contentious issue from Russian media...
