I've wondered what happens in Mongolia. Fephisto (talk) 14:38, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Interesting you should say that, prompted me to check the Mongolia category. Only six articles, including this. I would not be surprised to see that go up a bit over the next few days. At one point I complained Zimbabwe wasn't well-enough covered, now the category has 69 articles. When I was regularly reporting on Thailand I dug up all the local English-language sources and found out what their biases were.
In the dim and distant past we used to feature one under-reported country for a while and encourage people to look for news on it. --Brian McNeil / talk 14:47, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
What about Turkmenistan? I heard they had some sort of revolt a few years back, but since then it has been MEDIA BLACKOUT. Fephisto (talk) 15:08, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
