'Cyrillic Autocracy': Journalists Getting Cute With Their Russia References

When 'Evil Empire' just doesn't do it anymore

Fri, May 19, 2017

You know the Russia-gate nonsense is starting to bore everyone to death when journalists feel the need to come up with euphemisms for Russia.

A good one, according to The New York Times' White House correspondent Glenn Thrush is "cyrillic autocracy".


You know, because US is a "western democracy" –  a good thing – Russia gets to be a "cyrillic autocracy" – a bad thing. You play black hat, I'll play white hat.

And it doesn't even make sense. Didn't Russia just steal America's democracy?
