Niyazov punishes TV station
OK, enough doom and gloom for now.
Turkmenistan's massively eccentric leader, President-for-life
Saparmurat Niyazov (best known for renaming the months and legislating
the Ages of Man), has punished a local TV station for being too boring
. The head of the state-run TV station, most of whose coverage was of Niyazov's speeches or smiling children singing songs of praise to him, was docked one (appropriately renamed) month's pay over the "low quality" of programming.
