Russia's RT faces seven investigations in Britain over broadcasts since Skripal case

ONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s media regulator opened seven investigations into Russian news channel RT, saying it had found an increase in programs which may have breached impartiality rules since a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy last month.

The poisoning, which Britain blamed on Russia, prompted the biggest Western expulsions of diplomats since the height of the Cold War. Russia has denied any involvement and suggested Britain carried out the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

Russia has warned that every British media outlet, such as the British Broadcasting Corporation, will be kicked out if Britain shuts down RT, a channel launched in 2005 and financed by the Russian state to project what it says is a Russian viewpoint on major global events.

Russian officials say RT is a way for Moscow to compete with the dominance of global media companies based in the United States and Britain, which they say offer a particular view of the world.

2. Good news.

In contrast, when I wrote to Facebook last year with concerns about fake news + fake ads, and concerns about Zuckerberg's priorities, I was censored. By Facebook. The US has barely slapped Zuckerberg's digital knuckles. We've done nothing to challenge Fox News' abuse of American sanity. Our FCC is in with Comcast, et al. Where's our BALLS and OVARIES as a Nation?

I'm so upset about what is happening to this country and even now I believe people aren't alarmed enough.

Get alarmed people. Call me – and any "wacky activist type" – the canaries in the mineshaft.
