Russians surprised the number of Americans who watched interviews with Putin

The interview of Russian President Vladimir Putin to journalist Megin Kelly for the first release of the Sunday Night program on NBC News looked at the 6,1 of a million Americans. About this informed the portal Adweek, specializing in ratings. According to him, it was the highest rating of NBC since March, with the exception of sports programs.

The conversation with the Russian leader was able to overtake the dateline show, which traditionally occupies the top lines of the rating channel. Specializing in crime stories, the program was able to keep a million viewers off 4,9 screens.

Kelly, who moderated the discussions of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, said that Putin treated her "warmly, very politely, was interested in her family, told her about his details."

Russian-speaking social network users left a lot of comments about this.

Cool man Putin!
- the user writes "VKontakte" Sergey Kalinin.

NBC's toughest journalist. Many politicians are afraid of her.
- notes Natalia Eliseeva.

This is not a drop in the sea. Just this interview was watched by the most intelligent, intelligent and intelligent people in the USA. Which subsequently will be able to explain its point of view to the gray majority. For most Americans, this is generally not interesting, for them the main thing in life is “sofa-series-show-brew-burger
- Vasily Malozemov gives his opinion.

As recalled RIA News", President Putin gave Kelly an interview on Russian-American relations and, in particular, again denied the allegations against Russia regarding interference with US elections.

            Uploading the full English version is a great idea. Perhaps this is already done. And the journalist in itself does not matter. In their realities, this is simply a laying between the news generator (BB in this case) and the editor (or the channel’s editorial policy machine).

    And why am I not surprised? Probably simply because the lackeys are obligated to listen to their God. Or have I frozen it again? And if you think carefully? For us, Putin is simply the President. For the whole planet, He is God. Thanks to him, some people are conscious. Although wrong. To put it mildly. He corrected and will show the True Path! ... Something dragged me to the truth.

    When Kelly interviewed, it seemed to me that she would like to get from Putin not only interviews. She appreciated our president, as a woman evaluates a potential partner. Or did it seem to me alone?

    I understand that this whole story is public rhetoric and nothing more. But I remember the tongue-tied Brezhnev. Gobachev's hollow boot, Yeltsin's drunken jester. Finally, we have a leader who can brilliantly, but also without rudeness put in place the most dodgy snake, and I am proud of it, no matter who starts whining about a bad economy. Bad, bad, but in our non-elite courtyard you can’t drive from cars, do not get through, most of all from foreign cars. No wonder she cut pieces in the American version of the interview where she looked especially awkward. As a person born and living on Vasilievsky Island, I especially liked the abundance of purely Petersburg words and expressions in Putin’s speech - our man, I would like to endure his ministry to the end.

      Ha! I remember how a neighbor from the village answered me the question why she voted for EBN and not for Zyuganov.
      - But because he (EBN) is beautiful !!!
      - What is beautiful?
      - Well, his hair is beautiful! And then we have all the rulers are all bald and bald ...
      “And who among us is the bald ruler!”
      - Well, how ?! Khrushchev was bald! Andropov was bald! Chernenko is bald! Gorbachev is bald! Zyuganov is also bald !!! Ay, yes tired already bald! Is it the case of Yeltsin! One hair that he is worth - magnificent!
      - Yeltsin is drinking!
      - It's nothing. Look, in our village all the men are drinking!

      Wonderful, so let him go and work as a TV presenter, and put each other there. (By the way, what the hell did the president have to talk with her at all? Let the president speak with the president, dolls with dolls) And the president of any tongue-tied one, only to have a strong economy and not depend on oil demand. Emirates also have foreign cars in their yards.

      And you know, I'm a little tired that I see Putin on TV more often in a year than all Soviet ones all the time from Brezhnev to Gorbachev.

        It was not Putin who jammed into the interview, but the journalist herself did it. Refusing an interview in this case meant that Putin was scared. About Brezhnev. As for the economy, not everything is so simple. The country at that time was holistic, that is, its economic potential was twice as powerful. This potential at that time was realized on Stalin's inertia (I mean space, BAM, nuclear weapons) or on the basis of the high oil price that jumped in the early seventies, this was achieved by AvtoVAZ, Kamaz). But there were major shortcomings: our country imported grain, other products (Finnish eggs, butter, cheese), there was a lag in new branches of science (computers, biotechnology). That is, our country did not have full sovereignty. Afghan proved it. As for the opportunity to see the face of the leader, I can not compare, I was then very busy. But one thing I saw, our propaganda raised among the people a "Feeling of deep satisfaction" regarding any speech of the leader.

          Refusing an interview would not mean anything. More precisely, he would have shown - do not go, honey, to serious people. Not your level. There is a certain diplomatic etiquette.
          Afghan proved it.

          Afghan only proved that the country is capable of sending Americans and entering there before them. By the end of the 83rd, everything was already normal there, but with the advent of Misha in the 85th, it really started. And the number of bearded has grown 3 times over the year is a fact (why would it suddenly?).
          And the need is the uselessness of Afghanistan ... Can’t you tell whose planes are now based in Bagram, Kandahar, etc.? And why are they there?
          But one thing I saw, our propaganda raised among the people a "sense of deep satisfaction"

          Nonsense, by and large, people saw the old, sick, but still respected person. And chuckles, well, it's in the blood, we laugh at the apostle Peter.
          But with the current is more difficult. The feeling that this is an advertisement for “Snickers” (sorry, not patriotic - better than “kvass Nikola”) is getting stronger.

    6,1 million Americans

    For an American layman, this is a huge figure. And even in a truncated NBC form, it’s good that so many Americans watched it. Moreover, they write that they watch the full version on the Internet. I will express my personal opinion - this is a good informational blow to the United States, which they organized on the assumption that their host will “dampen” the GDP.

    I don’t understand one thing, well, six Amer’s lyams looked at him, well, well, but the comments are that he’s cool, he’s like that, he’s super macho there, but I wanted to put everything in it, where is the work, where is the development, about foreign cars in the courtyards, the people of the Rkedit people scored themselves, I emphasize that they’re not happy, they give it away, but the interest rates on loans are the fault of wine, he’s on the drum only, he’s a hired manager, and it’s all the same that he has a master of sports or something, I need budget revenues and confiscation of property from his lads. Take off your pink glasses and understand Putin - this is the future king, but don’t think that you will all be noblemen, far from being slaves, and the yard is a cut, a mile, a bear compotovich, a fellow, you want a king, it’s your business, only now I also have the right to want, but I want Lenin, Frunze, Felix and Stalin, I believe more in their ideals, but I will add Deng Xiao Ping and the reforms of China here and it seems to me that people like me have more rights, because everything that they use now has created an alliance, and he created only a cooperative lake, and by the way you are not in this cooperative and never will be.

    Apparently, she can work on the opponent’s words with scissors so that he himself is not glad that he gave the interview, and therefore they are afraid.
