Violent Moscow protests

Any of y'all watching Fox's coverage of the violent post-election protests in Russia? Just be aware that, uh, the video they're showing of those Russian protests is actually from Greece. Here's RT's (snarky) video of it, and here's a link to their article that breaks down the evidence:

- The phonebooths in the video are yellow, rather than grey.

- There are people in Fox's video running around in blue jeans and long-sleeved tee shirts. Right. In Russia. In December.

- There's a sign in the background of one shot that says (in Greek) "National Bank of Greece"

Anyways. Have a great day.
