The latest barrage of reporting from LR/DR founder and publisher Kim Zigfeld focuses on journalism and the lack thereof in Putin’s neo-Soviet Russia.
On Pajamas Media, she looks at Putin’s efforts to silence journalism he doesn’t care for, with an example of a foreign reporter being expelled from Siberia for telling the truth about living conditions there.
On American Thinker, she exposes the fraudulent reporting of Putin’s propaganda machine Russia Beyond the Headlines, with an example focusing on their gross misreporting of the Leonid Razvozzhayev torture saga.
Putin is now openly seeking to revive every key totalitarian aspect of the USSR just as quickly as he can do so. And front and center is his policy of wiping out reporters who tell the truth and elevating those who will lie on his behalf. Meanwhile, like the sheep they are, the bleating “citizens” of Russia stand mute and allow him to do so at best, at worst they loudly cheer.
