Russian television exploits Putin like American media exploits the American action hero. “One man…against a terror of other lesser men, zombies, animals.” It appears we are witnessing the same careful transformation of bias in our journalism with the dismissal of millions of women in protest by a president that doesn’t see them as more than objects. Trump’s exploitative nature only reflects the American ideals of popular culture. Sex sells. Source: Gehlbach, S., & Sonin, K. (2014). Government control of the media.
