The Dangers Of Parachute Journalism

... ‘report’ – devoid of analysis – in the same newspaper, entitled – more in the style of a tabloid paper than a serious one – ‘Moscow on the Med: Cyprus and its Russians’, and dramatically sub-titled ‘As tensions between the Kremlin and EU rise, the tiny island has become a Petri dish of western worries’.
