The relations between the U.S., China, and Russia as China threatens the U.S. for trying to “encircle and contain” it while the U.S. watches China cozy up to Vladimir Putin and refuse to condemn Russia’s aggression in Ukraine was the most-talked-about story in news/talk media this week, landing atop the Talkers TenTM. At #2 this week was the use of security video from the U.S. Capitol by FOX News personality Tucker Carlson to downplay the events of January 6, followed by the state of the U.S. economy and the Fed’s warning that interest rates will continue to be pushed up at #3.
