David Remnick Cites Glenn Beck to Explain Russian Media

The New Yorker editor David Remnick, a Russophile who is fluent in Russian, gave his take on the country’s politics and media last night. To explain today’s Russian media, Remnick evoked a former cable news star.

“Imagine if Glenn Beck were appointed by the president,” Remnick told Seth Meyers on “Late Night,” adding, “and there were many Glenn Becks all over television, and that was all the information you were getting about the world.” He concluded that Russian media “is not Soviet style, but still not anywhere near what you would imagine here.”
