Listening to the “Political Scene” on the New Yorker website (you can find it on the top left), where David Remnick explains why Obama’s speech in Russia did not have the same level of engagement as his speeches in Prague and Cairo:

“Russian controlled television which is everything in the media did not show this speech…the Arab world, the Muslim world saw Obama’s speech, heard Obama’s speech live, and repeated times throughout the whole region, and it made a big impact not just in Cairo but arguably even in Iran, who knows….the problem was the tree fell in the forest and not many heard it.”
