Jesus Christ on a bicycle... Are you for real???
RT is a cheap, unprofessional, Soviet-style propaganda channel headed by a "journalist" who literally slept her way to her current job, can't put two coherent phrases together, was caught falsifying news on multiple occassions, falls for pranks, and is too dumb to detect irony or sarcasm in tweets she often quotes as her "news source".
Just in January RT falsely accused one of Russia's top opposition bloggers (Rustem Adagamov) of pedophylia. They interviewed Adagamov's ex-wife, a nutso, who claimed that some 15 years ago in Norway Adagamov ***** a girl. Who that girl was, how old she was at the time, exactly when and where it happened, why she (ex-wife) or the girl's parents kept silence for 15 years -- all this she failed to explain. RT went on to "inform" the public an official investigation was launched against Adagamov in Norway which turned out to be a total lie.
I've heard about this, and yes, it was a sufficient blow and made me slightly question RT's journalistic integrity. There has been a few instances where their reporting has been blinkered
(to say the least), but I use RT for world events, not necessarily reports covering Russia's political infrastructure. Since the mainstream media fail to address the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the Syrian Civil War and and many other world issues, I use RT as my source. As I evidently made clear earlier on, it's far from perfect, but in terms of accessible news sources, this is far less biased, sensationalised and degradable than most other networks. I am not sure how they cover Russian social news (I've read a few of their political reports), but to say RT is propaganda is ignorant. Again, their political and social reporting in Russia could demonstrate this, but out of all the news sources available to me, RT wins. Each media outlet will have its bias, its "agenda" and its motive - it just so happens RT is more honest and informative than most other junk out there.
If somebody has a more objective and less, according to you all, propagandistic news source, then by all means, enlighten me.
