At the Geneva summit, President Biden of the US and President Putin of Russia announced the restoration of their ambassadors and agreed to new talks on vital issues. Meanwhile in Washington and major US media outlets, Russiagate-addled hawks promoted increased confrontation. James Carden analyzes the talks and the bellicose US media response.
“US media outlets seem to be egging biden on to take a harder line than than the President wanted to,” Carden says. “It’s a product of the last several years of Russiagate hysteria. But it also shows who make up the American press really don’t know that much about Russia or foreign policy.”
