Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anyone remember when Pravda only told the government's lies? I am posting this as a reminder that IMHO, Pravda is not a valid news source.

Moscow's medical workers discovered a magnificent gift of a sixteen-year-old girl Natalya Demkina from Saransk. The girl possesses "dual vision". She is capable of discerning a person's internal organs without using X-ray or ultrasound....

...Despite a number of experiments and thorough medical examinations, the girl's gift still needs to be backed up by scientific evidences and facts. Today, the girl hopes that scientists will notice her and conduct all the necessary experiments.

Seems awfully freaky to me. The only thing that comes to mind is a superhero.

Thanks for alerting us to the danger. Since I, and all my acquaintainces read Pravda religiously every day we may well have otherwise fallen into their snare of misinformation.

Well I'm not surprised. Is this where you came up with your secret high speed Iranian helicopters that can out run an F4 fighter jet; and then land on another secret high speed craft that is in flight and that can also out run an F4?

Pravda is a common source for fringe stories. Many people don't realize that this is no longer a mainstream publication.

As you pointed out Pravda was never considered a reliable source of any kind of information.

Iraqi?

True. Unfortunately many people seem to think otherwise. Pravda is one of the best sources of fringe, garbage information.
