Our Spring 2017 group (Center for Citizen Initiatives) met with Vladimir Pozner in Moscow. Pozner has been Russia’s #1 TV Icon for over four decades.
He is an independent thinker who is not a supporter of Putin, but at the same time he appreciates the role Putin has played in stabilizing the country since assuming Russia’s presidency in the year 2000. Pozner observes the ways in which Russia’s media is controlled, as well as the ways America’s media is controlled.
For a totally honest appraisal of the politics and media of both countries, take the time to watch this piece.
