    Rory Suchet is a dreadful hypocrite. He reads out rabid anti western propaganda as if it were genuine news. Must make his family cringe.

    Like others have said it's good for an alternate viewpoint. People are right to question it's legitimacy though, especially considering that it's funded by the Russian government and the fact that they can't actually criticise the Russian leadership.
    Doubt it's much more biased than the BBC

    Are you serious?


    RT is state owned (like all other Russian TV media) and solely funded by the Russian government. That should really tell you all you need to know about its validity as a news source. It's reguarded as the mouthpeice of the Kremlin.

    It promotes conspiricy theories, hosts 'experts' who arn't actually experts but political extremists and are just paid to promote the Putin line or bias to that side to begin with.

    They arn't allowed to criticise Russia, Putin or his party in any way and solely focus on undermining the west with propaganda.

    Are you trying to deny that it isn't? It Relies on labour backing for its existence, it is a socialistic centralised institution

    This is common knoledge and quite visible to see on programs like newsnight, question time, the news e.c.t

    There is more truth in RT than a lot of Western media that is for sure. Of course it is biased, but then you can say the same for any media.

    You should remember RT is often very pro-Palestine, pro-Iran, anti-American foreign policy. They also have a lot of anti-Zionists Jewish descent guests on the show like Norman Finkelstein, Gilad Atzmon on the show. Even George Galloway is on there a lot.

    You can see why America above all fear RussiaToday because they're showing a side that they don't want us too see. The media, with America's being the worst is a propaganda voice for Zionists. Even John Kerry is on the broadcasting board of governors.


    For anyone interested in who own America's media and why confidence in the media is at an all time low watch this.


    Nathanael Kapner, who was born and raised American Jewish converted to Christianity and helps expose what they're doing. You can't call him an anti-Semite.
