Village and rural are practically synonymous. I don't get this irritation you have with calling a village in Central China rural.
Haha, I just flipped over to RT. There is some woman going on and on about the western media not providing the proper news. But she has no news of her own to offer. Instead she shows excerpts from CNN, FOX and MSNBC and then tells us what garbage they offer. She is funnier than John Stewart. RT could be my go to comedy station if it is always this funny.
If you really think that the Russian government funds RT and does not influence content, then you are not in the same universe as me. It is Pravda under a new name, that is all. The propaganda machine of Putin.
Right now she is doing a piece on the 9/11 conspiracy. HaHaHaHa. Very up to date.i
Oh, now a nice little bit about that wonderful man, Assad, in Syria.
Now we are hearing that Palestinians are subject to more apartheid than the South Africans were. It took all of 10 minutes for the anti-semitism to come out.
Ah, maybe I won't watch this garbage anymore. It has no news at all, just propaganda.
So she ends her little programme by telling us to tune out western news and listen to her Russian truths. Now I know where you guys get all this anti western media stuff. You just repeat what RT tells you. She has told me about 5 times in 20 minutes to stop watching western news and get the truth at RT. I am starting to worry that I am being brainwashed over the airwaves.
I don't watch the live broadcasts of RT. I had subscribed to their YouTube channel. They extensively cover world events the mainstream media dare not go towards.They are far from perfect, but they keep a sense of journalistic integrity. And you severely
don't understand the term "propaganda" if you label RT's coverage as such. It's also implausibly ignorant to make such a comment after having watched a minimal portion of their coverage. It's like me crossing over to Fox News for the first time, seeing a decent report on my football club and then go out adulating the company for its "objectivity".
And you've further demonstrated more illiteracy in your post. I only discovered RT 3-4 months ago. My standpoint on Western media has been the same for well over three years. What's the point attempting to have a legitimate argument with somebody who mindlessly throws out blanket, empty statements such as "now I know where you get your anti-Western media stuff" or "it has no news at all, just propaganda"? If you actually took time in watching their broadcast, you realise they cover more than one side and they certainly are not "anti-Semitic" and part of Putin's "machine" since most of the world events have no correlation with Russia.
