Russia Today And The State Run MediaSubmitted by zooamerica on Tue, 03/26/2013 - 21:42
State run media....
RT, also known as Russia Today, is an international multilingual Russian-based television network.
It is registered as an autonomous non-profit organization funded by the federal budget of Russia through the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.
State sponsored television...is CNN that bad? Are they funded by the federal budget via Congress? No. Does the government purchase paid for propaganda, yes...but at least they admit it and often make it seem obvious to the point where people actually turn against it.
"If you see something, say something." WTF does that mean?!!!
At least Wolf Blitzer isn't paid by Uncle Sam, Ted Turner signs his checks.
Rand Paul, for the Love of Jesus, please don't go anywhere near a RT Network studio.
As for the rest of us...
I think it is our own best interests to stay far away from Russia Today. They act like our friends, but they're really not.
