Putin’s Information War Got a Key Assist From Donald Trump and Right-Wing Media

From a column by Washington Post media writer Margaret Sullivan headlined “Putin’s full-scale information war got a key assist from Donald Trump and right-wing media”:

The former presidential adviser and Russia expert Fiona Hill made headlines last week when she stated bluntly in a Politico interview that Vladimir Putin would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons.

But it was another part of that long interview that I found almost as arresting. Hill described how Putin, as he reaches for domination, relies heavily on his skills at the influence-and-information game.
