Back in the Cold War days, folks in the Soviet Union knew that the media was completely controlled by the state so they had to read between the lines to get any information. No real news was available, only propaganda that fitted the Party line of the moment—the original fake news.
Fast forward thirty years to the fact-free reporting of so-called scandals about the Trump/Russia conspiracy. Lies, innuendo, brain-dead journalists repeating their own half-baked views as if they were news, pundits dreaming up fantasies, in short, the jabbering of an hysterical mob of semi-literate drones of the Democrat Party are now the current American Media. No-one knows fake news better than the Russians, they lived with for seventy years.
At a press conference in Cyprus on Thursday, when asked asked about these rumors, accusations and innuendos in the American Media, Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, replied:
“Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke about that in detail at a news conference following his talks in Sochi yesterday. Since you raised the issue again, I can say the following. I sometimes get the impression that many US media outlets work according to a principle which was common in the Soviet Union. Back then people used to joke that the newspaper Pravda [Truth] had no truth in it, and the Izvestia [News] paper has no news in it. I get the impression that many US media operate in the same way.”
Too much— and too true. The American Media now being justly compared to the Soviet media from the Communist era, by the Russian Foreign Minister! It’s just so sweet.
