Former Head Of KGB Ignorant Of US

From time to time there will be a story in the media about how Americans are arrogant and ignorant of the rest of the world. But what does the rest of the world know about us, and where do they get their information about the U.S.?

This story blows me away. Could it be that Vladimir Putin, the former head of the KGB is so ignorant of the way things work in America? Does he really believe that George Bush had Dan Rather and others at CBS fired? If he doesn't believe it, he certainly made himself looks foolish for no apparent reason.

Here at the Institute we want to know where Czar Putin gets his news of the US, and of course, the only way to determine that is to hold an online poll.
