Anything from [Diana Johnstone] should be treated with
great skepticism. Johnstone is a longtime friend of a group of officials in
Milosevic's wife's political party--stays with them when she's in Yugoslavia,
depends on them (often exclusively) as sources for her articles, etc.
I know this because I was for a while an editor at In
These Times, whose European correspondent she once was. We were forced to stop
printing her stuff when we learned where it was coming from--there wasn't even
the pretense of independent reporting.
