Russian propaganda

I can see why the US is really furious about Russian propaganda.  Russian propaganda has become much better since the days of the USSR.  One of the biggest imbalances in the Cold War was that the US was far better and more effective in propaganda than USSR, which was lousy in that field. The US today is dealing with an adversary who is much better at propaganda.  And US propaganda is not what it used to be: it sells much less and the decline of the US TV and radio propaganda broadcast (and the shutting down of Sawa Radio) are recent manifestations.  The US was really effective in propaganda in the Cold War.
