RUSSIA : Gorbachev Calls For New Elections; Medvedev Caught Retweeting Obscene Insult; State TV Ignores Protest Rallies.
Soviet Ex-President Mikhail Gorbachev called recent parliamentary elections fraud-ridden and believes new elections must be held.
"The country's leaders must admit there were numerous falsifications and rigging and the results do not reflect the people's will," he said.
: President Medvedev, who prides himself on being tech savvy, retweeted an offensive message about followers of arrested prominent activist blogger Alexei Navalny...before later deleting it.
A defeated MP had blasted Putin's detractors as "... stupid ######cking sheep".
Medvedev has 741,000 Twitter followers.
His retweet went viral as bloggers delighted in exposing the tactical error.
ALSO: state TV's Channel One ignored all coverage of election protests except official rallies... forcing interested citizens to access the internet and blogs.
