The Real Lessons of RT’s Foreign Agent Registration

    Is Maduro’s TeleSUR registered? Is chinas communist party state media registered, like CCTV and New China TV? I’m really asking. If the answer is no, then this is purely political and should be criticized. If they are already registered, then why has it taken so long for RT, which is obviously a foreign agent operation, to be registered?

    RT is one of the channels I get that I never watch. So if Russia wants to spend its money in America pushing nonsense like Jesus arm wrestling Hillary as Satan, I say let them.

    In the absence of France24, RT is a refreshing alternative for foreign news coverage when compared to the insane 24/7 CNN news model with whatever ‘tragedy’ CNN decides to cover. CNN’s 24/7 coverage of Tahrir Square2011 convinced ‘educated’ Americans that 200,000 protestors represented 95 million Egyptians, and was an ‘Arab Spring”…instead leading to multiple crimes against humanity, from Libya to Syria. Exhausted by that debate in what was the last gasp of The New Republic, I stopped watching CNN, reading the NYT etcetera, and, six years later, desperately seeking real news from English language foreign press:

    American ‘news’ media is not only an embarrassment, and an overseas joke, it fuels a mass hysteria that is intent on destruction of too many lives, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    I really have to find a way to livestream France24. The French still take news; and education in civics, history, and geography, seriously. My cable provider deleted all foreign English language news feeds except for BBC, which uses the same talking points as PBS.

      “American ‘news’ media …fuels a mass hysteria that is intent on destruction of too many lives, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

      Sounds like a serious criminal indictment…but there’s bright spot elsewhere!

      “RT is a refreshing alternative for foreign news coverage…”

      You are hilarious (if only unintentionally). And yes, 9/11 was indeed an inside job.

      “The majority of people DO NOT believe the official 9/11 story. The evidence is there for everyone to see. It’s a testament to the power of the media and the manipulation of the government that there hasn’t been a mass uprising on a global scale.

      This is just a short video by Russian news outlet (Russia Today) with some clips which prove 9/11 was an inside job”
