Another ‘Cold War’ with Russia? Ukraine Question
How did the United States get into another Cold War with Russia? The Nation Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Katrina vanden Heuvel, and American scholar of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University, Prof. Stephan Cohen offered historical context on this question in a discussion hosted by the American Committee for East-West Accord in Brussels earlier this month.
“Does media coverage shape the political agenda or vice versa? Probably both, or variously depending on the subject. But the US media, by so unequivocally accepting the official US Government/EU version of events, blaming all on Russia, failing to provide history, nuance, let alone complexity, is now complicit in forming the false narrative that may lead the US toward war. Media malpractice is staggering!” Katrina vanden Heuvel.
