Abstract:

In this essay, the author examines Soviet coverage of the US presidential elections of 1980 in an attempt to determine the main tendencies in Soviet propaganda treatment of elections in free countries. The conclusion is reached that there is, in fact, very little of substance in Soviet reporting of the elections the main objective seeming to have been to obscure the US electoral process in order to alleviate the unfavorable contrast with the Soviet electoral process.
