    Moscow Times is a foreign owned English language newspaper with a circulation of only 35,000 because it is not available at news stands but only in places frequented by western Ex-Pats. But you are correct in that asking for a Russian publication or media outlet critical of Putin is not going to be easy, because the media in Russia is not free unlike in the US where you had two other 24/7 media outlets critical of the Bush Administration not to mention countless print media sources, with regards to Obama you have a 24/7 media outlet several conservative publications as well as countless numbers of talk radio stations. And again I'll reiterate my point that RT is broadcast in the US; whereas, foreign owned companies are prohibited from broadcast media in the Russian Federation.

    Right, and your ignoring the fact that Putin could shut that paper down. And hasn't.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Why shut it down? It has a daily (Mon-Fri) circulation of 35,000.

    Lol. Exactly the same daily circulation as the Town Prairie Leader newspaper of rural Todd County in Minnesota...

    Ukraine peace deal under threat as rebels refuse to halt attacks

    In addition, the rebels have refused to allow the OSCE (Minsk I & II international monitors) access to Debaltseve.

    In reality there is open criticism of Putin in the press in Russia. As such I don't agree with this conclusion. Of course it is constrained and while I don't know for sure, my guess it is more constrained than the U.S. That said Russia does not spend the kind of money in the U.S. that the U.S. spends in Russia on critics of the government.

    Unlike with Russia though dissenting reporters in the US don't get 'disappeared' when they criticise the state.

    You think I couldn't back up that view? You need look no further than the strict rules of engagement that have been placed on US military personnel when in the Middle East. For instance, we all know that our troops are prohibited from attacking/destroying mosques, even when we know damn well that attacks are being organized in there. Hell, ISIS doesn't even give that consideration as has been demonstrate by them destroying multiple religions sites.

    This is of interest

    FBI records show that COINTELPRO resources targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed "subversive", including
    ...
    organizations and individuals associated with the Civil Rights Movement, including Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others associated with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the Congress of Racial Equality and other civil rights organizations
    ...
    FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover issued directives governing COINTELPRO, ordering FBI agents to "expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, neutralize or otherwise eliminate" the activities of these movements and their leaders.
    COINTELPRO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There is a limit.
