Azerbaijani mass-media pratices on misinterpretation of quotes

In addition of the two recent postings about distortion of PACE president’s words (1, 2), today.az publishes an article entitled:

Special representative of OSCE chairman: “Nagorno Karabakh status should be defined in the framework of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan”.

The situation is quite oppressive, but only if you do not read the whole article, which says:

He noted that Nagorno Karabakh status should be settled on the basis of self-determination principle … in the framework of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

It is getting clear that one-sided subjective interpretation of facts is not to Azerbaijani mass-media advantage, which in the result plays against the publisher himself and Azerbaijan as a whole. The transparancy and objective interpretation is one of the most important factors the mass-media must have, it seems they forgot it there.
