Sorry Fareed, you came 4,000 miles just to get owned

One of CNN's top hosts and a highly visible mainstream media propagandist, Fareed Zakaria got the Vladimir Putin treatment up close and personal over the weekend. 

Zakaria had been invited to moderate a panel discussion at Saint Petersburg Economic Forum, which ran from June 16th to June 18th. Present on the stage were Zakaria, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, President Putin, and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

Mr. Zakaria asked Putin why he complimented Donald Trump, calling him "brilliant, talented, and smart." Putin's response was, essentially, "I called him colorful - what part of 'colorful' don't you understand?" He then proceeded on a rhetorical tour de force against the hypocrisy of US foreign policy and criticism of Russia that left poor Fareed clearly looking like he'd been humbled. 

Donald Trump has been grossly inflating Putin's words, even going as far as to claim, "He called me a genius." Zakaria didn't check the facts. This typifies the MSM laziness and mindless parroting of all manner of misinformation regarding Russia. Maybe next time smug Fareed will do his homework, if he wants to avoid getting schooled.
