Here, even Goebbels rest. The Western media, all the attention which was at that time focused on the Olympics in Beijing, just could not even figure out what actually happens in South Ossetia. Too much contradictory and diametrically opposed to the information gets from the parties involved in the conflict. Apparently, in many respects connected with this media with a certain delay in response to events and distorted in the first stage of the interpretation of these events. Chief editors of many news agencies, listening to live speech, the Georgian leader, simply could not imagine that the head of state can brazenly and so shamelessly lying.
And only when the scene was visited by representatives of the international community and the press, publications tone began to change. Among other things, Saakashvili has taken care of, and information cover for their adventures. For providing disinformation media, he was invited to visit the leading specialists in this respect, more involved in information services in the right way the Yugoslav conflict. And the bread, these specialists worked out in full. Suffice it to recall a live interview of one of the leading well-known American television with two Ossetian, had just arrived from Tskhinvali and former eyewitnesses. This leading coughing, snorting, squeaking chair, announced the commercial break and did not uttered a loud air, but would not give an Ossetian to tell the truth about what killed them Georgians, and the approaching Russian army rescued them from destruction. Or shown on Spanish TV episode, filmed on a tanker Georgian mobile phone, when he shot at his tank and residential quarters of Tskhinvali civilians and left at this specific comments on the Georgian language.
