Russia Spends More on Propaganda than Unemployment

russia-today-adverts-0041This piece of Russian propaganda depicts Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad superimposed over President Barack Obama’s head. The slogan reads, “Who poses the greatest nuclear threat?” This image, as well as many others just like it, have been popping up in Russian media at an increasing rate recently.

Foreign propaganda often make us question our own stereotypes. What emotions are invoked when you view this image? Does living in America or being an American citizen change the perception you have of this image’s credibility and accuracy?
