Prof. Stephen Cohen in an appearance on CNN took the networks to task for their blind parroting of the Obama administration's and Hillary Clinton's unsubstantiated accusations against Russia for the hacks into the servers of the Democratic National Committee. 

The hacks have exposed corruption in the democratic party primary process, with emails showing a deliberate effort being made to prevent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders from obtaining the presidential nomination.

Cohen also blasted shameless attempts by the mainstream media and the Clinton campaign to portray Donald Trump as somehow controlled by Vladimir Putin or surrendering US interests to Russia.
