An American intelligence report finds that one of the weapons in the Kremlin's arsenal was its state-run news network, RT, formerly Russia Today, which can be seen in the U.S. "60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl spoke with RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan about the allegations.

    You can feel the pure hatred emanating from Margarita. And it's funny because I don't think most Americans feel the same about Russia. I guarantee there more Russians that hate Americans than there are Americans that hate Russians. Many Americans have Russian parents and spouses...some of love Russians or are indifferent about Russia. It's lopsided. The hate from the Russian media against the US is intense and persistent. The anti-USA sentiment is born out of a decades old belief that the USA stood in the way of Russia's greatness. They are not taking a moral stance against American interference, but expressing resentment for the USA's power. Still, I know there are kind Russians because I know some. This lady is just full of hate.

    How can you believe an intelligence body, whose report destroyed the whole of Eraq. who after years shamelessly came out to say everything they wrote or the premise for attacking Eraq was not true.
    Are you guys serious. ,?

And Leslie Stahl, the mainstay Zionist presstitute/propaganda specialist? “It was those Russians, I tell ya’!” Based on what? - “US intelligence reports.” Really? RT is a breath of fresh air but only for those with the ability for critical thinking and the power of reason.

    RT, Press or Propaganda? Couldn't we ask the same question of CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, BBC, CBC, etc? They were all very pro Hillary and anti Trump during the election campaign of 2016. Just look at their reactions on the night of the election when they realized Trump would win. But we should all believe that THEY had no bias and didn't try to influence the outcome of the election?

Will it all be about "i was just doing my job!" and other weak deflections at compromising their integrity (in a profession that comes with a code of conduct akin to a doctors to represent the truth) all for those inflated bribes they call a "paycheck"?

  • KingLutherQ

    RT is full of propaganda - always trying to play the victim. Yugoslavian Serbian government was bombed by NATO because they where conducting genocide on Kosovo Muslims (ethic Albanians). All of the UN security council members voted for NATO intervention, except Russia who had the power to single handedly VETO the UN security council. (No UN resolution was created because Russia always VETOED it. Even though all the other nations voted for it. )
    The Yugoslavian Serb government was warned by the UN and NATO many times, before NATO's air intervention. But the Yugoslavian Serb govt was resolute in mass murdering Kosovo muslims. They rounded up civilians from their homes, slaughtered families like farm animals, and buried them in mass graves. The Yugoslavia government's mass displacement of 1.5 million Kosovo Muslims and multiple state sponsored massacres was not exactly easy to ignore.
    List of massacres during the Kosovo genocide:
    Many times the UN tried to stop the Yugoslavian Serb government's state sponsored genocide. The UN established three differnent peace keeping forces, but the Serbs was not interested in peace and kept on killing Muslims, and even attacked UN peace keepers (blue helmets).
    Yugoslavian Serbs attack UN peacekeeping force:
    UN resolution 1031 (Establishment of UN protection force):
    UN resolution 1035 ( the establishment of a United Nations peace keeping force):
    NATO-led Multinational stabilization force:

    CBS has completely lost all journalistic ethics. Thom Hartmann is a Democrat. Ed Schultz is a Democrat. I believe Larry King is Independent. Jesse Ventura is on RT, for crying out loud!! Why didn’t 60 Minutes interview some American journalists - like Hartmann, Schultz and Ventura - who have the guts to say that war is a racket and the TPP was devastating to workers? Why not interview the water protectors at Standing Rock whose story was ignored by the MSM but courageously covered by RT?
    This disgusting piece of propaganda must have Walter Cronkite spinning in his grave. There is no honest journalism left at CBS.
    I grew up watching the CBS news every night with my Dad. It has morphed into pure propaganda for war mongers.

But they could control privately owned media, because money can control any thing, and thats wht the US politivcians are trying to achieve.Evil in action. corporations-run media have no higher morls than state-run media. Quite the opposite. They have their own agenda.
