PBS Frontline: Putin's Way (free to view)

Scapegoating, false intelligence, manipulation, the parallels between Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and Richard Bruce Cheney are nothing short of chilling.

1. PBS descending to Fox levels now?

In the segment, PBS chucks its coveted journalistic guidelines straight out the window, relying almost entirely on worn-out speculation and bogeyman fairytales peddled by the likes of The Economist's Putin-hater-in-chief, Edward Lucas.

The accusations made are not even groundbreaking; the program, from start to finish, is a spectacular promotional piece for Karen Dawisha’s book Putin’s Kleptocracy: Who Owns Russia?, the narrative of which it follows closely while even giving us cameo appearances by the author.

This show comes on top of a lengthy feature review of the book by Washington Post blowhard Anne Applebaum, which was published last week in The New York Review of Books.

.....

That The New York Review of Books would beat the drum for Dawisha is a no-brainer. The once liberal publication has been bought off by a billionaire benefactor to showcase viscerally pro-Maidan and anti-Russian Professor Timothy Snyder as well as the ga-ga statements of the same benefactor.
