Oliver Stone has found a new home for his pro-Kremlin propaganda
OANN just announced they'll be airing Stone's "Ukraine On Fire" tomorrow night.
Shame that Russian- and RW-propaganda network won't be dropped by DirecTV till next month.
YouTube has flagged the documentary, so of course the RWNJs at Rumble welcomed it.
Wondering how long till we see Stone as a regular contributor for OANN and Newsmax and Fox News...
Btw, do NOT confuse Stone's pathetic excuse for a documentary with the excellent 2015 documentary "Winter On Fire," which is on Netflix, and which has been nominated for, and won, awards.
Stone's documentary was a year later and possibly has a title chosen to cause confusion.
"Winter On Fire" -- which I hope everyone will see -- is now available FREE on YouTube, thanks to Netflix:
Never heard he was pro Kremlin. Nuts, of course, but not a Russian sympathizer. What is this based on?
From that last link:
The Putin Interviews, a documentary comprised of conversations with the Russian president that took place between July 2015 and February 2017, is clearly intended to humanize Putin and demonize America. In the first two parts provided to press, there are scenes of Putin feeding horses and strolling through lush gardens as string instruments sound; footage of the sexagenarian schooling men one-third of his age in hockey; and fawning Stone comments ranging from You have a lot of discipline, Sir to You are a very lucky man to What do you bench? OK, that last one I made up.
Stone not only fails to challenge Putin, but essentially cedes him the floor, allowing the cunning ex-KGB operative to spin more than the presidents toupee in a tornado. Putin denies Russia was the aggressor in virtually every global conflict, including the invasions of Georgia and Ukraine. He champions Russias economy over that of the U.S., despite his GDP being a little more than half that of Californias. He even blames the Cuban Missile Crisis on the U.S.
At one point Stone, in an apparent effort to name-drop one of his movies, asks Putin: Is Wall Street actively working to destroy the Russian economy in the interests of the United States? He shrugs it off. Do you think the National Security Agency had gone too far in its eavesdropping? Of course he does.
Note -- that article gets the date of Stone's Ukraine On Fire wrong. It was released in 2016, not 2014.
