Putin spokesman: US has 'serious problems' with press freedom as Justice Department probes Russia

Source: Washington Examiner

A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin says inquiries by the Justice Department into Russia-funded news outlets show that U.S. press freedom is in decline.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to a reported investigation into the Sputnik news outlet. A fired White House correspondent says he gave the FBI thousands of internal emails showing it's illegally operating as an unregistered propagandist.

4. this is rich...

Russia has a poor reputation for respecting political free expression, but Peskov said the Justice Department's actions contrast with Russia's treatment of the press.

"No censorship is allowed" in Russia, he said, news agency TASS reports, and "foreign media outlets are absolutely equalized in their rights with our domestic media outlets."



No, we don't censor our journalists, we just kill them.

9. Shall we take a look how Russia ranks on the Freedom of the Press index?

https://rsf.org/en/ranking
US ranks 43 out of 180.
Russia ranks 148 out of 180, below such esteemed defenders of human rights like extremist hot-house Pakistan, actual full-blown dictatorship Zimbabwe and slavery-loving Qatar.
