The article discusses the closure of the A1+ television company in Armenia and notes the false sincerity of the Armenian government's thrust to promote unbiased reporting by the media. Citing the political motive behind the decision to revoke the broadcast license of A1+ TV channel on April 2, 2002, the author avers that this was a case of what could happen when organizations choose to remain disloyal to the Armenian government. After several denials to restore its broadcast license, A1+ began live streaming online news on September 2010.
