The big difference betweetn RT and CNN is

RT is Propaganda for the Russian Government and CNN is Propaganda against This Gov and For the CorpKoch Types. The thing they have in common is Putin is against Gays and so are the Koch idiots.

MSNBC is too broad a brush.. it has it pockets of reality.

Thank you for the article.. From your link, MADem..

"Judging by interviews with seven former and current employees, Bivens’ story is typical. RT, the global English-language news network funded by the Russian government, has come into the spotlight since the Russian invasion of Crimea, which the network has defended tooth-and-nail."

Which coincidently enough.. so have the RT Truthers around here.

Another snip//

"Soon after joining the network, the current and former employees said, they realized they were not covering news, but producing Russian propaganda. Some employees go in clear-eyed, looking for the experience above all else. Others don’t realize what RT really wants until they’re already there. Still others are chosen for already having displayed views amenable to the Kremlin. Anti-American language is injected into TV scripts by editors, and stories that don’t toe the editorial line regularly get killed."

Another former RT employee in D.C. was shooting a story about the Wounded Warriors softball team. The story never made it to air because, as the employee was told by a higher-up employee who had lobbied for it, Trunov wanted one of the veterans to say something to the effect of, “I served my country and now all I have is this softball game.” None of the veterans said such a thing.

The employee also recounted waiting for a phone call to go cover the celebrations outside the White House on the night that Osama bin Laden was killed — a phone call that never came, because “Denis [Trunov] was not interested.”

“We basically ignored the story except to ask if the death of one man really makes the U.S. any safer,” the former employee said.

They have no fucking clue, do they?

Good Title~Excellent Graphic Mr Scorpio!

Thank you Earth First..

"50,000 rally in Moscow against Crimea action: AFP estimate" Wow..

thanks rug

Gawd.. he's ugly. All that self rightgeous holier than shit he spews..

Of course Franklin Graham "is praising Russian President Vladimir Putin for his aggressive crackdown on homosexuality, saying his record on protecting children from gay “propaganda” is better than President Obama’s “shameful” embrace of gay rights."

Putin's got his fans.. fan club right here on DU. Called.. Dupes for Putin.

Thanks for this William.. I think it really brings this whole Putin and his "traditional values-anti-Gay" crackdown in Russia into perspective.

The Pathetic Lives of Putin’s American Dupes

"Today’s Russia dupes are a smaller, more pathetic lot. Above all they are just plain weirder, because they lack a clear ideological motive for their stoogery. Soviet Russia not only commanded a vast propaganda network, but embodied a doctrine with international appeal (and which had originated outside of Russia). Vladimir Putin’s Russia follows no model except Russian nationalism. To the extent it employs a non-nationalist philosophy, its main idea is that gays have weakened Europe. And yet the dupes still come."

thank you, n2doc
