Lithuanian journalists at war
For several months already Lithuania has been shattered by a political scandal.

There is one important thing that everyone agrees about, i.e. the press and television played major role in this political scandal. It's just the question of whether the coverage went on intentionally, with certain consequential considerations. In any case, the journalists did the right thing, after all.
