An agenda behind demonising Putin

An agenda behind demonising Putin, an editorial in South Africa’s The Citizen newspaper.

It is a sad reality that in the media, once a person is identified as “bad”, then he or she is fair game for character assassination or defamation.

Information which shows that person in a good light is either ignored, downplayed or ridiculed.

We should be very careful indeed in believing everything the Western media feeds us about Russian President Vladimir Putin. …

One needs to keep an open mind on Putin and others who have been demonised. An enemy of London or Washington is not necessarily the enemy of everyone else.
