News Trivia: Putin Finds a New Demographic: Gay Men

Vladimir Putin’s PR experts use photos of him bare-chested, horseback riding, judo fighting, assault rifle shooting, and  other macho activities to appeal to his demographic – women aged 40 and above.

Newspapers and other information sources claim that photos of the physically fit Putin have been circulating like wildfire through gay chat-rooms on the Internet.  On one such site there is an item entitled “Russian dictator seeks love,” in which Putin is referred to as "Pootie-Poot.”

I imagine that Putin’s growing following among this demographic group is another one of those unintended consequences of Russian political PR.

  2. The news networks seem to be less about the news and more about pandering to politicians. Where can we turn for our daily dose of credible, cutting-edge, hard-hitting news and keep up-to-date with current events in our increasingly fast-paced modern society? If we Fove trust the news networks to deliver credible news that meets high standards of quality and objectivity, where can we find reliable news sources?

  3. These days you can turn to just about any of the major news channels and get information about late breaking stories, but there is also a decidedly entertainment aspect to these news channels that is disturbing. Some of them, like "Headline News" don't even attempt to be a solid news provider anymore. They are pure tabloid and usually they only provide gossip about the latest missing child or murdered wife or whatever the latest juicy tidbit is. Others like "Fox News" are just fronts for political in this case the Republican party which seems to control all of Fox's news programming in a very blatant and disturbing way.
