The majority of news outlets, particularly those controlled directly by the state, prefer to cover Sochi the way they would cover a deceased man: CPJ research shows that both official repression and self-censorship have restricted coverage of sensitive issues in the run-up to Sochi—the most expensive Games in Olympic history, according to news reports. The information vacuum comes amid a generally poor climate for press freedom across Russia. Since returning to the presidency in MayVladimir Putin has signed a number of restrictive laws directly or indirectly curbing media and Internet freedom.
Sunday, March 04, 90th Annual Osiris Awards: Pregame Well, it's that time of year again: Hey; I have really bad OCD, too.

This is a religious ceremony, even if most of the people involved may be obvious to that fact. There are some, uh, interesting variations on this particular icon out there but this is a family blog. Where else would it be? With its crimson and gold and circular ceilings, I must admit the Dolby Theater vaguely calls to mind this particular auditorium.
