I do not think that in the end everything will end that "Rain" will cease to broadcast, it would be wrong, but again I say, there are such fatal errors, and then how many times does not apologize, how many times do not say that this is an organized attack, as some say, it's all nonsense. This is a lesson that I hope channel "Rain" and his staff have learned, maybe that will teach him to be a little less arrogant, a little less to have a sense of superiority towards others. Just to really understand what journalism is what you do. I will defend you if you ask me. But nevertheless, what you did is unacceptable.
