FRONTLINE tells the inside story of how Vladimir Putin came to see the United States as an enemy — and why he decided to target an American election.

(There is no need to wait for Mueller's Report)

Following the President's lead, everyone needs to pay homage to such a great leader of his country; such a earnest and trustworthy leader. To do less would be sacrilege to the President, to America.

Frontline is almost always a shovelful of Ruling Class Propaganda Crap.

If they dump on Putin, my immediate reaction is to think that he may have some good points, after all.

You may want to watch the show before making a sweeping generalization about this episode. If you've been following events, it's sorta tough to say that with very much credibility.

Putin really WAS an intel agent during the fall of the Berlin Wall, he really WAS incensed at it, he really WAS incensed over the "color revolutions"...much of what's being said is already well known, just not assembled all together in one place.

Sorry Matthew, while I acknowledge the shift on PBS' part to its wealthy donors, in some areas, they're still telling it like it is, because it's not credible to create "alternative facts" nor is it practical.

All of us normally get better from you...we've been spoiled by your normally excellent observations. This is not a "dump on Putin", it's a fairly accurate explanation of what drives the man, much of it in his own words.
