Putin's Revenge

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Putin's Revenge

This could be worse than Montezuma's revenge. Airs tonight.

The Election Clash That Fueled Putin’s Ire Against Clinton
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/

"For months, reports of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election have dominated the headlines. But the story traces back long before the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton last year.

In fact, as the above scene from the new, two-part FRONTLINE documentary Putin’s Revenge explores, Vladimir Putin clashed with then-Secretary of State Clinton in 2011 over her condemnation of Russia’s parliamentary elections."

How 'Putin's Revenge' became Trump's victory

"A new Frontline airing Wednesday, Putin’s Revenge, gives us new contexts and a clearer path to the meddling. A two-part production whose second hour will air next week, Putin’s Revenge is an urgent, absorbing piece of filmmaking: I gobbled down both episodes quickly.

The organizing theory of this project is that Russian President Vladimir Putin formed a deep and abiding detestation of Hillary Clinton during her time as Barack Obama’s secretary of state, for what he saw as America’s — and specifically Clinton’s — interest in aiding pro-democracy forces working against Russia. Frontline demonstrates, with a clear, easy-to-follow timeline, how Putin and his minions resolved to gain the revenge of the show’s title by directing hackers and other disruptors to increase the already-existing confusion, doubt, and fear in the United States during the 2016 election. And while the film says Putin never dreamed that his chosen-favorite candidate — the easily-manipulated Trump — would actually become president, the Russian leader can now take some credit for Trump’s election, and Putin savors that victory today."
