It's March 2014 and following on from an extremely successful Winter Olympic Games, Russia decides to organise another fun sporting event: and the whole world's invited. Welcome to the Paramilitary Games in the Crimean Peninsula.
Unfortunately, in spite of Russia's best intentions, the Western Media doesn't seem to enjoy the event as much as anticipated, and spits the dummy in a way that exceeds even its #SochiFail histrionics. The battle lines are drawn: it's East versus West in a good old fashioned media cold-shoulder war, with each side firing 24 hour news cycle broadsides at each other with alacrity.
Join your host Robert Foster, caught squarely in the cross-fire as he attempts to navigate the salvos, and find some underlying truth. It's Mutually Assured Mass-Media Destruction: Crimedia Wars - and the stakes are high - who will win the War of Perception? It's Juice Rap News, in the thick of it, as usual... Hysteria Is Happening.
