  1. >>One of the wilder ideas aired by Vremya recently is that the presence of the word “corona”, which means crown in both Latin and Russian, in the word coronavirus hints that Donald Trump is somehow involved. Apparently, this is because he used to preside over beauty pageants, handing the winners their crowns.

    I knew it all along.

  2. OK, that’s just bad form by the BBC. Why would they translate the names of these programs as “news”?

  3. What kind of country has prime time news outlets serve as vehicles of government propaganda? Fox News demands to know.

  4. Russia spreading misinformation propaganda? That’s not ‘news’ is it?

  5. Waiting on Trump to agree with them and then blame deep state for it.

  6. Everyone knows that the it’s Koranovirus sent by Allah to punish China for their treatment of Uigurs

  7. Given the way things have been going lately, this could be considered an admission that Russia really is responsible for the Coronavirus.

  8. In the USA it is *legal* to use the news to spread propaganda

  9. So is it like a *reverse fallout* ?

  10. If Russian state media says it, it must be true. /s

  11. Russia seems to be begging the world….daring the world…. to do anything about their misbehavior.

  12. The Russians might actually be on to something: The American military handed out blankets to native Americans that had the polio or smallpox virus on them, it infected African-Americans with syphillis, it dropped atom bombs on 2 large Japanese cities. Americans are psychopaths.

    * edit: I’m American

  13. How is this any different from the propaganda that Fox News spits out 24/7 ?
