Are Bloomenthal and Khalek also right-wing neocons?

Six current employees of RT were interviewed for this investigation. All are Americans who made no secret of their qualms with the network’s coverage of Russia-related issues. Some said they bristled at an increasingly suffocating atmosphere rife with heavy-handed editorial imposition, while others in different positions at the network said they still enjoyed a modicum of independence. All insisted on speaking anonymously for fear of repercussions. Four of the sources were personally acquainted with Wahl and worked or interacted with her on a regular basis.


The overthrow of Ukraine’s Russian-oriented government on Feb. 22 and the Russian invasion of Crimea five days later sent shockwaves through RT’s Washington bureau. Abby Martin, a host of the RT program “Breaking the Set,” who was known for her trenchant critiques of mainstream U.S. media and denunciations of American militarism, was among the staffers who bristled at Putin’s actions.

In the final segment of a March 3 broadcast of her show, Martin lashed out at the invasion: “I can’t stress how strongly I am against any state intervention in any sovereign nation’s affairs. What Russia did is wrong. … I will not sit here and defend military aggression.”
