Russia Media Battle

Eric Engleman reports from Moscow that Russia's independent media outlets suffered new blows today. The newspaper Segodnya stopped publishing, and the entire editorial staff of the magazine Itogi was fired. Both the newspaper and the magazine (a Newsweek affiliate) were part of the media empire of Vladimir Gusinsky. Gusinsky and his journalists say the Kremlin is trying to silence independent media voices.
