Anybody who differs with your "opinions" is deranged - I realized this long time ago.

What?

Please point me to another person's name whom I accused of being "deranged". I think I have used the word "deranged" the first time in our forum in many years in that post about Mr Zuess... Do you share his beliefs?

You did call him "deranged". Any specific reason for this ?
I do not "share" all "his views". However, there are issues where he makes "sense".

I said " Western Media" - Your definition. I do know CHINA DAILY is NOT a "WESTERN MEDIA".

As hinted before, I only know about him thanks to you as you pushed me to seek info on him on the Internet. I saw a brief intro to a blog he wrote about Wikipedia. He claims it is an organisation owned by the F.B.I. and the C.I.A. He reminds me of our dear ornithologist Petera.

Even a S Asian publication like The Dawn is almost like a Western media outlet as it has a far more vivid way of reporting, not staid and ossified as the Chinese propaganda organs. For example The Dawn reports the U.S. American criticisms of the Pakistani government in detail. The staid and ossified Chinese propaganda media never do. They only voice their masters' beliefs. That is what I regard as "Western" even when the media outlet itself is based in a non-Western country. Think of the Japanese media, for example. Chinese media are more like African media: they flatter the ruler ad absurdum and take offence when someone sees the dust motes on the eye glasses of their leaders. Too much ruler worship, if you want to know my view.

I have some good friends there.
So DAWN's reporting of Iranian "unrest" will be a credible story ?
