For the most part, the world is against Russia and horrified by their invasion of Ukraine. But some of the personalities on Fox News have seemingly been rooting for Vladimir Putin.
The Russians certainly appreciate it. Propaganda network RT has regularly played clips of Fox personality Tucker Carlson. And during a recent interview, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov praised Fox for presenting, “an alternative point of view.”
During the spot, Lavrov told the state television network:
“So we know the manners and the tricks which are being used by the Western countries to manipulate media. We understood long ago that there is no such thing as an independent Western media. If you take the United States only Fox News is trying to present some alternative points of view.
But when you see, you watch other channels, and when you when you watch, read the social networks and internet platforms, when the acting president was blocked, as you know, and this censorship continues in a very big way and the substitution of notions whenever something is happening by the way of mass protest mass demonstrations, which they don’t like, they immediately call it domestic terrorism. So it’s a war, and it’s a war which involves the methods of information terrorism. There is no doubt about this.”
