How Much Propaganda Can You Get Into 15 Minutes of News?

More

кузщкеукBy Boris Reitschuster So much propaganda, in 15 minutes of news:   The main ‘news stories’ on Russia’s ‘First Channel’, tonight:

  • Germany is a nation occupied by the United States of America. Germany cannot even promote someone to Colonel without American approval.
  • The United States has spent $5 billion on the putsch in Ukraine.
  • The goal of the United States is to force Ukraine into NATO; and install a missile defense system in Ukraine.
  • America dreams about destroying Russia with a nuclear first strike; but to do so America needs a missile defense system in Ukraine.
  • Most important for America are the areas along the Ukraine-Russia border, but the people there are against the USA.  Therefore the Ukrainian Army is currently exterminating these people, with American consent.

The problem: people who listen to such lies, every day, at some point start to believe some or all of them. At the moment the best reporting on German TV, radio and in print is to summarize – in ten to fifteen lines – the main news of Russian State TV, as above.  Information about the current propaganda on Russian TV would hugely aggravate lobbying by Putin-defenders.
