An experienced Soviet propaganda journalist had to go through a five-year university course as he needed extraordinary skills in order to have his articles published in Pravda. The most common requisition on "analyzing" international affairs was - (1) take facts about any event in the world, (2) consider conclusions that should always be like, "West is evil and is moving towards its collapse" and (3) construct any number of arguments to prove beyond doubt the inseparable link between (1) and (2).

Konstantin in his Russian Blog explores propaganda in United States. In his detailed review of article by Anthony Robinson he finds a lot of discrepancies clearly visible inside Russia. That's very sad to see official position about Russia in major mass-media, looking absolutely similar Soviet propaganda 30 years ago.
