We are certainly living in unique times when it comes to propaganda, or as it is more recently termed, "fake news". Since the end of the Cold War nearly three decades ago, I'm not aware of a period of time when the Western media has done what it can to propagate the narrative that all things Russian are bad and, by extension, all things American must, therefore, be good.
In other words, whatever Russia says about any given issue must be propaganda and whatever the West says must be the truth. In fact, we don't have to look to far to see how the "Russian threat" has been swallowed hook, line and sinker by politicians from many Western nations, Hollywood and the television networks and the print media. There is one organization and individual that has put "pen to paper" and outlined exactly why we should be so afraid of Russia and its leader, Vladimir Putin, the very embodiment of evil and how their influence on our core beliefs should be reined in.
