Three-time Oscar winner Oliver Stone says The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal have become "extremist in their anti-Russian fervor," Variety reports.

Speaking to reporters at the Sarajevo Film Festival, where he presented his new film, "The Putin Interviews," on Monday, Stone said:

"What I'm seeing today — and I've read these papers for years — is as bad as I've ever seen it. When the Ukrainian situation happened, I didn't see any reports from the other side of the war. Within hours the United States recognized the coup d'état. And the reporting from the beginning was very anti-Russian."

Stone noted that in 2013, Amazon, who's owner Jeff Bezos also owns the Post, got a $600 computing contract from the CIA.

"It may well be an agenda. We all know the CIA, New York Times, and Washington Post have been close for years. They're linked to the CIA," said the director of "Wall Street," "JFK" and "The Doors."

"CIA interests are not America's interests, they never have been. The CIA has been morally corrupt since the beginning."

On Sunday, the festival honored Stone with its Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award for his "exceptional contribution to film art."
