    Kremlin reportedly ordered state media to tone down Trump coverage

    Kremlin reportedly ordered state media to tone down Trump coverage

    Published February 17, 2017 FoxNews.com

    The Kremlin on Thursday ordered state media to tone down its rosy coverage of President Trump as concerns about Russiaís future relationship with the new administration grow, a report said.

    The crackdown on favorable Trump coverage comes at a time when U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies conduct several investigations to determine the extent of contacts Trumpís aides had with Russia during and after the 2016 election campaign, Bloomberg reported.

    A person familiar with the matter told Bloomberg that Russian President Putinís staffers feel viewers no longer find the coverage of Trumpís transition into power interesting.

    Some of the more popular segments on Russian TV involve Trump's pledge to "drain the swamp."

    Trumpís election was hailed in Russia as a possible new beginning between Washington and Moscow.

    However, the intensive coverage of Trump on Russia TV went above the level of what the Kremlin wanted, Bloomberg reported. Trump received more mentions on TV than Putin did in January Ė the first time Putin did not hold the title since 2012, according to Interfax.

    Former national security adviser Michael Flynnís resignation played a role in Trumpís coverage in Russia. Flynn was reportedly covered as a ďsympathetic voiceĒ in Washington for Russia.

    Trumpís tweet on Crimea also raised the eyebrows of the Kremlin. Trump on Wednesday accused Putin of seizing the region from Ukraine in a series of tweets.

    That's nice to learn there was so much positive coverage about Trump and the possibility of a new relationship with Russia. I hope it happens, I hope things go well in that regard, despite all the push-back from the media who apparently don't want our country to have a good relationship with Russia.
