East-West Relations – The City Politics Podcast

Listen to Dina Fainberg and James Rodgers, Reader in International Journalism at City and a former foreign correspondent, discuss journalism’s role in shaping public opinion on both sides of the Cold War divide. A legacy that continues today as geopolitical tensions between Russia, Europe, and the United States persist and are shaped by political correspondents across the world.

Foreign Affairs / Maria Lipman

In this extraordinarily thorough and insightful study, Fainberg identifies the similar approaches and practices used by Soviet and U.S. foreign correspondents reporting from each other’s countries during the Cold War. Each side claimed to report the truth and condemned the other for spreading lies and propaganda.
