RT was forced to remove this completely cooked-up disinformation story about Putin’s popularity abroad.
Why has the Kremlin decided not to provide its pool of loyal media with a clear narrative about who was good and who was bad in 1917? And why is Russia’s most ambitious communication project about the Revolution the one that targets foreigners?
A whistle blower from Russian television told that the primary red lines are when jokes target presidents. But jokes that are seen as giving voice to political discontent are also a no-go.
New stories begin to emerge with testimonies from whistle-blowers and anonymous sources in these otherwise very closed organisations.
Dmitry Kiselyov keeps living up to his reputation as one of the Kremlin’s most passionate propagandists.
