Crisis in Kyrgyzstan
HUFFPO vs IREPORT : KYRGYZSTAN
If a tattooed white guy iReporter--from Atlanta, GA--can fly all the way to Kyrgyzstan and swing an interview with the Commander of Forces in Osh, then why can't the Russian AP reporter who is being paid to report do the same !
TODAY - AUG 17 2010
I found this article in Huffington Post:
Now Huff Post are asking the same questions weeks after I sat down in person to get the Kyrgyzstan military's point of view.
See my interview with Kyrgyzstan Commander Kursan Asanov live from the city of Osh. The Commander answers my questions directly. Many of the these questions are raised by the AP reporter who is working with third party information and from reports raised by humanitarian watch groups. There is much good information in the article but the outside influences on the conflict are left out, completely. Again: why work off reports when you can simply interview the parties in person. Let's hear it for iReport.
