“One under-appreciated moment from Tucker Carlson’s recent interview with Vladimir Putin came after Putin implied that NATO powers were behind the 2022 bombing of the Nord Stream pipeline. Carlson responded by asking why Putin wouldn’t present evidence of this to the world, so as to ‘win a propaganda victory’. ‘In the war of propaganda it is very difficult to defeat the United States because the United States controls all the world’s media and many European media,’ Putin replied, adding, ‘The ultimate beneficiary of the biggest European media are American financial institutions.’ I don’t know about the specific nature of his Nord Stream insinuations, but Putin is definitely correct about the strength of the American propaganda machine. Of all the fronts one could possibly choose to challenge the United States on, propaganda is surely the least favorable.” (02/11/24)
