Wash Post distributes Russian and Chinese statist propaganda

Posted in Uncategorized by jmullerwashingtonsyndicate on December 3, 2010

For anyone who receives a weekly subscription to The Post this is not necessarily new information. I’ve wondered sometimes where the “Russia Now” insert, sometimes upwards of twenty pages, comes from and why it’s in The Post.

I never gave it much thought other than what was on the front page always seemed to be a peaches and ice cream portrayal of the country instead of the dystopian reality of oli-rich oligarchs ordering hits in and out of the state’s borders.

Thanks to the Nieman Journalism Lab up at Harvard to give some answers to my why and where questions of The Post‘s “Russia Now.” It is the state-run English newspaper. The Post also works with the Chinese government to distribute its state-run English media.

Hey, get it how you live and get it while you can.
