Sale of Media-Most

NPR's Michele Kelemen reports on concerns over the sale of Media-Most, Russia's largest private media group. The head of Media-Most says he was under duress last July when he agreed to sell his company in exchange for the government dropping fraud charges against him. Some say the charges were part of a Kremlin campaign to muzzle the media group's outlets, which have been critical of Putin.
