Yukos Verdict

Voice of America seems to be of two minds in its story today about a verdict in the trial of Mikhail Khodorkovsky of the Russian oil company Yukos.

The story’s headline reads: “Russian Businessman Found Guilty of Fraud, Tax Evasion.”

The story begins: “A Moscow court is expected to find the former director of Yukos Oil company guilty of charges including fraud and tax evasion.”
