Author Gary Shteyngart watches Russian TV for 7 straight days

Shteyngart, who was born in Russia but came to the US as a child, was the ideal candidate to sit in a hotel room for 7 days watching three screens showing nothing but Russian television. The screens were off when he slept and he was allowed a break each day to swim at a nearby club but otherwise it was three 55″ screens of Russian TV all day long for an entire week.

No spoilers, but let me just say Ukraine does not get fair treatment on Russian news programs.
