Sputnik. AYFKM?

I just read a story in The Atlantic, and I had to check that it was published today, and not last Saturday.

This guy, named Lee Stranahan,

...is launching a radio show on a Russian network called Sputnik.

“I’m on the Russian payroll now, when you work at Sputnik you’re being paid by the Russians. That’s what it is. I don’t have any qualms about it. Nothing about it really affects my position on stuff that I’ve had for years now.”

And I bet you can't guess where his previous gig was!  Oh, wait, you guessed Breitbart.  Well done, you.

You know, I get it that this country is mightily racist, bigoted and backward.  But I also know we have the Russians to thank for getting all the assholes point in the same direction.

Still.  Seriously.  Sputnik?  If they were trying to dodge the inevitable parody by pre-empting it, it worked.
