Ah, turns out there’s been a recent NYTimes article precisely on how ridiculous things in Russia are.
What interests me is, when Rachel Maddow pronounced things like “is there a Russian operative sitting in the White House?”, is she truly that unprofessional, uninformed and easily duped or was she lying because she knew it would raise rankings and bring in profits? Is she an idiot or a greedy cynic?
And it’s not just her, of course. But I used to like her show, and then she suddenly went crazy two years ago.
