US – Politics – Paul Krugman Gives Russian Propaganda Channel an Interview – 30 May 2012

Another example of why, despite his saying sensible things about economics, I distrust Paul Krugman. Here he is dignifying the pro-Kremlin “Russia Today” network with an interview. What’s next? China’s Xinhua? Iran’s Press TV? Fox? Sun?

Critics of the policies of the American government should do themselves a favour and not appear on “news” stations that are noted for presenting slanted propaganda. If Krugman appeared on Fox or Sun, obvious “US” and “Canada” reactionary propaganda channels, people would reasonably flip out and comment that this decision reflected poorly on the independence of his ideas. They should say the same when the propaganda channels represent the reactionary elites of a foreign government.
