  14. 14. Anyone who believes that all citizen media are objective and impar tial is either mad or hasn't actually read any citizen media. […] What's become ver y difficult is using citizen media to understand what's actually happening on the ground. As we all know, some of the repor ts from both camps in the South Ossetian conflict were likely manufactured and inaccurate. This sort of situation can get even more complicated when there aren't impartial journalists on the ground. ETHAN ZUCKERMAN, GLOBAL VOICES CO-FOUNDER

  16. 16. MEDIA & CONFLICT-REPORTING […] people are often inclined to consider their existing attitudes and beliefs to be true and filter the news through this lens. Thus, they accept messages in order to maintain their original perceptions. […] bias in the local media [...] serves as a means to fuel and perpetuate hatred. This is a role the media has and continues to play with regards to the conflict over Nagorno Karabakh. ! !
