A couple of days ago I stumbled upon Pravda, the ex-mouthpiece of the communist party of the former USSR. One of its stories was referred by Drudge.

It was an eye opening experience. Some of the stories included Obama phenomenon: Hope and disappointment, Puppet State America, and Death of the West and Decline of the East. All of these stories were written from a perspective that would be considered ultra right wing in America today.

What has happened to the leftist Russian media? Did it move to the right or has American media moved to the left? I suspect it was a little of both, but it is the US media that changed the most.

The scary part of this transition is that the US media is leading the public and politicians down the road that the statists in Russia tried in the past and rejected.
