- TIME Sinks to New Depths of Hypocrisy and Propaganda with Latest Cover Story on Scary Russia
by Danielle Ryan, https://www.rt.com/
With the Mueller investigation wrapped up and interest in Russia’s alleged misdeeds against the US threatening to wane among the masses, mainstream media has decided to widen the net and refocus Russia’s “other” evil schemes.
TIME magazine has gotten a head start with its latest cover story, authored by journalist Simon Shuster, literally titled “Russia’s other plot” and illustrated with the usual clichéd, Soviet-inspired scary red and black artwork.
The story, ostensibly, is about Russia’s construction of an “empire of rogue states” around the world – but in reality the circular screed is actually just bold propaganda for US foreign policy and regime change wars.
The Kremlin, we are told, has been “scouring the world in search of influence” in an attempt to fill “the void left by an inward-looking West.” This is the point at which alarm bells start ringing for those with even a cursory grasp of US and Western foreign policy, who will be asking themselves, since when has the US – with its constant destructive and unwanted interference in the affairs of other nations – ever been “inward-looking”?
