The scariest quote about the Russian people EVER.
It's a view ratified by Nikolai Svanidze, a leading anchor on Rossiya, who said in June that viewers were "tired of pluralism." "Our guests from the United States and European countries may not understand what I'm talking about," Svanidze said, "but the classic Soviet viewer is not used to alternatives. It's tiring to have a choice because you have to think." (emphasis mine)
