Is Pravda Fanning the Flames of Civil Unrest?

Edit: Just a couple of stories showing some dishonest reporting from Pravda. Shocking, I know, Communist news organ trying to whip up violence and make the job of establishing order harder for police officers and National Guard.

In one situation, an officer lightly touches an uncoordinated elderly man who foolishly and illegally approaches a line of riot police, causing him to topped backwards on his head. Meanwhile, some commentators on the WFBO twitter are doxing the officer that was just doing a difficult job. It's a job that might not be as hard as keeping "millions" of Catholics informed in today's Church, but a very hard one nonetheless. This tragic event (the man may die from that injury) is being castigated by the usual Marxists ruling New York who routinely make law enforcement more challenging than it needs to be:
[Pravda] A chilling video captured an elderly protester being shoved to the ground by officers in Buffalo as they moved in to clear the area after the curfew. The man could be seen lying motionless while bleeding from his ear. 
Graphic footage shows police officers swarming the area in front of City Hall in Buffalo, New York right after its 8pm curfew went into effect on Thursday. As police advance on protesters, a man with what looks like a smartphone in his hand approaches the officers leading the procession in an attempt to confront them. 
It’s unclear from the video what the man tells the policemen (in full riot gear), but the confrontation did not last long before he is forcefully pushed by the officers, losing his balance and falling backwards onto the pavement. A trickle of blood can be seen flowing from his ear after the fall. As police call medics to the scene, the man appears to be unconscious, lying motionless in the same spot.

 In another scene Pravda mendaciously claims an officer had clubbed the rioter in the head as he was interfering with a police arrest:

[Pravda] A student accused of attacking a policeman during a protest in Philadelphia has been cleared of wrongdoing, with footage of the incident belying the assault allegations and showing officers unleashing batons on demonstrators.

All charges were dropped against the 21-year-old student, Evan Gorski, on Wednesday after prosecutors viewed online videos of the encounter, according to Gorski’s attorney, R. Emmett Madden.

“The police were lying. We had a protest against police brutality, and then police brutalize my client and try to frame him for a crime he didn’t commit,” Madden said.

It's almost like Pravda wants to inflame rioting by deliberately misrepresenting things as they occur.

USA Blocks Russia's Television Broadcaster RT

The U.S. has interrupted the transmission of the television station "Russia Today", reports the editor in chief Margarita Simonyan at the transmitter Twitter. "I always expected that you would begin to block our stations in the U.S.. Now it has happened. Long live the freedom of speech," she wrote.

Later, she added that the account of the sender was blocked at the Internet Resource "Reddit". More than one million people subscribe to the news of "Reddit".

RT, formerly Russia Today, is geared to international audiences, a publicly funded television station based in Moscow. It is broadcast in English, Arabic, Spanish and Russian. The stated goals of the transmitter are to present Russian perspectives on international affairs to the public and reduce old prejudices and stereotypes about Russia.

Pravda Isn't Really Conservative: Cossacks Show Anger About Gay Parade in Moscow

Editor: It wasn't so long ago that some people were saying, "hey, hey, hey, look at Pravda now". We remained skeptical with good reason. It wasn't just the weird ads, but the legacy of Pravda. Here, we have Pravda lamenting the fact that the West will continue to perceive Russia as "homophobic". Aww, that's too bad Pravda...

The Communist party used to be opposed to homosexuality, and Pravda's editorial desk probably is too, but they want to present a new, more democratic, kinder, cuddlier Soviet Bear.

[] Just like before, the gay pride parade in Moscow was ruined. It goes without saying that the West will harshly condemn the "homophobic" Russia for violating the rights of homosexual individuals. There will be a share of truth in those accusations, albeit only a share. The rights of the LGBT community in Russia get violated indeed, but only when activists attempt to display their homosexuality publicly and provocatively. Let's just face it - holding the gay march near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a challenge to the society.
