In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Supposedly objective CNN reporter adores Biden call with Putin

According to Fox News:

A CNN correspondent lauded the “impressively productive” call President Joe Biden had with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week, citing the eagerness of Putin to agree to a five-year extension of the New START nuclear arms treaty.

“It certainly does seem to have been very productive, in fact, impressively productive,” Frederik Pleitgen said during a live dispatch from Moscow.

“It really seems as though it’s a whole different way of going about these calls under the Biden administration than it was under the Trump administration.”

Pleitgen framed the extension of the New START treaty as a place Biden succeeded where former President Donald Trump had failed, but the Trump administration had purposefully waited until last year to begin talks on prolonging the pact and issued demands that were not met, such as China joining the agreement.

The reporter injects his own bias by assuming such friendly calls with Putin are a good thing. If Donald Trump had had a friendly call with Putin, he would have been accused of collusion. And it also assumes that extending  the START treaty is a good idea. In fact, the START treaty benefits Russia because it does not cover Russia’s vast number of tactical nuclear weapons, among other things. The treaty plays to Russia’s strengths.
