About the Author

Greg McLaughlin is an Associate of the Centre for Media Research at Ulster University. He is the author of The War Correspondent (Pluto, 2nd edition; 2016), and co-author with Stephen Baker of The Propaganda of Peace: The Role of Media and Culture in the Northern Ireland Peace Process (2010) and The British Media and Bloody Sunday (2015).


'This is a fascinating account of media coverage of Russia - an important source for students of international relations, media studies and journalism'

-- Greg Philo, co-author of 'Bad News for Labour'

'A tremendous skewering of the increasingly hysterical tone adopted by the mainstream media when reporting on 'Russia'. In recent years, Western governments have spent millions in an attempt to reignite Russophobia in political and popular culture; books like this make the job of our security services and propaganda denizens that bit harder'

-- David Miller, co-author of 'A Century of Spin: How Public Relations Became the Cutting Edge of Corporate Power'
