BBC & CNN
The BBC and CNN have reported on their televised broadcasts that Russia attacked Georgia. This is a slight distortion as the russian attack was in fact a counter attack following the attack by Georgia on South Ossetia and the Russian Peace-keepers.
The BBC’s broadcast has also referred to the “1000” georgian dead. Their has been no mention of the “1500” S. Ossetians killed in Georgia’s attack as reported on Russia Today’s broadcast.
