You will have to dig long and hard to find any real ‘mainstream’ coverage of this new axis of evil team. The Committee to Investigate Russia” (CIR) is not only calling on… well, watch the video.

The real stuff might also suck to high heaven, but at least it is watchable…. The Hollywood version? Not so much.
