#AceWorldNews say according to VOR it is American Media that Villianise Putin and almost everything about Russia covered by US media is distorted, Stephen Cohen, a world-known American scholar of Russian studies and author of the article Distorting Russia published in The Nation claims.
Also, “When Putin makes an offer that is in the best national security interest of the US, the first impulse it to reject it”, he says.
In your opinion, how did Western media change their rhetoric towards Russia and President Vladimir Putin?
Let me explain why I wrote the article which is a very sharp criticism of the way the American media has covered not only Putin but almost everything about Russia since Putin became president back in 2000. I didn’t write the article to help Russia.
I wrote the article to help American national security because I believe that this distorted media coverage of Putin and of Russia is losing opportunities for American-Russian cooperation in areas that are vital to the American national security.
That is everywhere from Syria, and Iran, and Afghanistan, to the struggle against the terrorism that struck Russia and America, and that it gets worse and worse and we see it even in the coverage of Sochi.
