It seems that Russian victims are worth enough for Western Europe...

I am also noticing the coverage...or the lack of it...

Of course, THIS is not depicted as propaganda by you... Russian state media would rather agitate than grieve over witnesses... Says quite a lot...

No idea about your country - it's all over the news here... How come you never say this when it's in a Muslim country

Never heard for Colonia Dignidad, but this is horrifying. State within a state in Andes.
Drugged, raped and tortured women and children inside of German sect, executions of political prisoners in Chile, supported and blessed by Pinochet and vice versa... Never liked that kind of German "creativity". :roll:

Not true.
I said it many times, especially about the silence by the western media over the atrocities committed by the Saudis over the Yemeni population and about the ill treatment the Palestenians get by the Zionists 24/7

Well, that stuff happens in Russia and other parts as well... "The western media" is independent dude... Independent does not mean "neutral"! (Maybe it should, I agree) So, as opposed to for example Russia, they can report whatever they want...
I would also back your argument that it might be too liberal at times... But maybe, if conservatives would focus on their studies rather than agitating, they might be able to bring forth an occasional journalist as well

They're not... But they're also not idiots and in order to become a journalist you at least gotta be able to write coherently, with few mistakes, you have to be well-informed and stick to facts - see where this is going?

I'm surprised you agree it should be neutral. I don't.

Forcing neutrality doesn't aid political discussion. It results in half-assed, school-like essays listing pros and cons or something. It's what I used to do all the time in secondary school: give both sides. An independent media means one is free to hold, write, and publish any view (within legal boundaries). Individual media houses shouldn't seek neutrality, but it's important that we have media houses with many different views. Which we do have, btw. Funny how sources like Fox News often aren't included in that "Western media" label.

Unfortunately I doubt whether that's the case anymore sometimes

It depends. Obviously some are great (DCG in Malta is an excellent example despite her distasteful style) but there's also the risk of not having any checks in place and being able to publish whatever you want (see: conspiracy websites). It's a problem in every field tbh, for example us literature scholars tend to automatically doubt the quality of self-published works. But it can also be good for the spread of knowledge and information.
