    It definitely well after the Crimea crisis (with the whole Le Penn/Putin/Trump/etc. right wing revolution trope emerging after the appearance of Trump )

    For years, the media was obsessed with China (with the Russians at the bottom of the news), and now more media resources have shifted away from the Chinese and towards the Russians.

      The media attacked Putin when it was clear that he would not become a Russian Obama or Clinton .

      The leftwingers who excused always the communists attacked Russia when it ceased to become communist and when it became nationalist.

        Good point.
        Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

          A 'fake news' approach to history?

            The Ivy League, Hollywood, the Media were always excusing the communists, now they have brought back Russiaphobia .

            The left hates Russia and Putin because communism has vanished in Russia .

              Not a fan of American history, I see. I'd recommend a biography on Ronald Reagan if you'd like a look into how politics in Hollywood has swung back and forth over the years. Then take a quick dip into American coverage of Russia during the 90s would round out the experience, just see how American media praised the same Russian democrats whom were condemned internally for the post-Communism chaos.
