Americans are completely detached from reality living “behind the CNN curtain,” deems Max Keiser, the host of RT’s ‘Keiser Report.’ While 95 percent of the world’s population is happily moving on, building new post-America future, Americans and their leaders appear comically out of the loop.

Referring to a 2003 German tragicomedy film ‘Good Bye, Lenin!’ Keiser compares Americans to the people living in East Germany before the Berlin Wall came down, who were gradually losing touch with the outside world.

“The reason being: they watch CNN and actually believe CNN’s narrative about Russian advances into Ukraine, the sanctity of Wall St., and the wholesomeness of American culture as a ‘shining city on a hill’ as Ronald Reagan called it,” stresses Max Keiser in his RT Op-Ed “Living behind the CNN curtain.”

According to the expert, the words of the US leaders appear to come from a distant past, a previous era of US moral and political hegemony, when the American middle class had stable financial positions, when America’s press freedom was not as low as the 46th place of the Reporters Without Borders league table, and when the population of US prisons had not yet reached more than 2 million people.
