You're reading: Losing credibility

Hyperbolic or inflammatory assessments and
assertions bordering on distortion have marred any potentially intelligent and
objective analysis. Here are a few examples from relatively respected Western
publications and spoke persons:

“Ukraine’s streak of four relatively democratic
national elections, from 2004 to 2012, has come to an end with the October 28
parliamentary vote. The 56-nation Organization for Security and Cooperation in
Europe, which fields the largest and most credible election observation
missions, in a preliminary statement today said the vote represented and
apparent reversal in Ukraine’s democratic progress.”

“The parliamentary elections of 2012 approach
the elections of 2004 in dirtiness.”
