Yesterday, some of our commenters seemed confused that your proprietor wasn't celebrating the news coming out of Russia that a Moscow city court had called for Scientology to be banned and its Ideal Org in that city to be shut down within six months. (Scientology vowed to appeal.)

An Ideal Org, vaporized? What an affront to Scientology leader David Miscavige, right? So what gives with the grumpy reaction, Ortega?

Let us spell out a little more clearly why we greet any news from Vlad Putin's dystopic fief with extreme skepticism and dread. It's because Russia, and its news media in particular, is a Bizarro World where up is down, and nothing is as it seems.
