Robert talks with Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky about politics and media in Russia today. Berezovsky controls a 49-percent share in the ORT television network. The Russian government owns the rest. He has come under pressure from the Russian government to give up his shares, which would put the network under complete state control. His empire has included an oil company and Aeroflot, the Russian airline. He was also recently a member of the Russian parliament, the Duma, but resigned his seat.
