Dagbladet Arbejderen om Rachlin

Begejstringen var stor i næsten alle de vestlige medier da de rapporterede fra Uafhængighedspladsen i Ukraines hovedstad Kiev.

På BBC World så og hørte vi Steve Rosenberg rapportere begejstret fra Kiev, hvor den den "orange revolution" til fordel for "frihed og demokrati" og "tilnærmelse til vesten" der bar et ordnet og velorganiseret præg udspillede sig.

Herhjemme tiltrak Samuel Rachlin opmærksomhed , bl.a. fra en journalist ved navn Erik Valeur, pga. sin utilslørede identification med de orange masser. I Rachlins dækning var enhver normal journalistisk distance fraværende.

Erik Valeur skrev et læserbrev i Jyllands Posten under titlen Rachlins Revolution, her nogle citater:

Korrespondentens [Rachlin] smittende hyldest til de orange masser i Kievs gader var særdeles underholdende, og det var da også først på tredjedagen, jeg begyndte at undre mig over et par småting.

Først sproget, så kildeskævheden, så manglen på informationer fra resten af det mægtige land, som trods alt dryppede ud i de landsdækkende dagblade.
Valeur fortsætter:
... det da snublende indlysende for mig og resten af lænestolsfolket, at de orange har en heroisk sag. De ligner på mange måder os, de fremvises i en kraftfuld tummel af farver og kampgejst, de lyder endda som os i reporterens formidling. Men det er ikke tilsvarende indlysende, at skyggen af de andre, af de andre stemmer - selv hvis de er helt spage - anbringes så eftertrykkeligt uden for billede og reportage. Så bliver vi jo netop som dem - de andre - dem, der altid har gennemspillet deres totalitære opfattelser af verden alene garneret med hyldestceremonier og enstrengede meninger.

Yevgeny Chervonenko

Pjotr Poroshenko

The new President of Ukraine , Viktor Yushchenko , has appointed multi-millionaire " dual citizen " Yevgeny Chervonenko communications minister.

The 45-year-old holds an Israeli passport and is vice president of the All-Ukraine Jewish Congress .

As communications minister he will exercise complete control over the development of Ukraine's media. ( communications minister *)

His department will issue all operational and frequency licenses for radio, television, Internet and satellite communications .

After privatization, Chervonenko gained control of a variety of businesses, including two large bottling plants, supermarket chains and a pharmaceutical firm.

In 2004, in an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency , he complained of "anti-Semites" in the opposition coalition, noting that he accosted one of them, Vassily Chervoni, in a washroom in the Parliament building.

Chervonenko said, "I put his head in the sink and told him; 'One more bad word about Israel and I'll really mess you up.' "

(Chervonenko was head of candidate Yushchenko's security detail, and bragged to the AP that he personally tasted all of Yushchenko's food when asked about the alleged poisoning. He blamed the poisoning on the "anti-Semitic" opposition who fed his man during a private government meeting to which he did not have access.)

Media mogul Pyotr Poroshenko , also a Jew , has been appointed secretary of National Security and Defense, despite having no experience whatsoever.

Not even Ukraine's heavily Jewish Communist Party can believe it.

After hearing of Poroshenko's appointment, they issued this statement :

"When national security and the activities of law-enforcement are entrusted to a businessman whose actions have often contradicted the law, and who has been caught falsifying State budgets, one can hardly believe in pre-election promises that all the criminals would be jailed."

Oligarch Poroshenko owns Channel 5 , the television channel that during the "Orange Revolution" turned from a relatively objective news source into a fountain of opposition propaganda.

Billionaire Jewess Julia Timoshenko , 44, has been appointed prime minister , the nation's second most powerful position, despite an international arrest warrant . Timoshenko is under criminal indictment in Russia for fraud and bribing government officials.

In 1996-97 Timoshenko sucked billions from the Ukrainian economy through the re-sale of gas under the protection of her robber-baron patron, former prime minister Pavel Lazarenko .
