This is a case of the kettle calling the pot black.

The crucial difference is those western news outlets such as the BBC are never afraid of being critical of the presiding government, whereas I personally cannot recall ever reading any criticism of Uncle Vlad anywhere on Russia Today. Perhaps the editors are afraid that they'll suddenly be arrested on charges of theft or 'embezzlement' if they do.

  


Please get your head out of the sand.

Unless I missed it that is that CN, BBC, Reuters, Europe and America have yet to call the present occupiers in Kiev government are outright illegal occupiers of government offices in Kiev. Not that I expected anything better from them.

DevilInside, you've lost your sleep and it seems the Devil has stolen your mind, since you claim that THE GAY BBC has never been afraid to criticize the presiding government. Do you think that any sensible person would believe your trash?

BBC was scaremongering today saying there are "fears" that Russian oil supplies to Europe "might" be affected over the "ugly" situation in Ukraine. Nothing to back it up. Just opinions from people who I've never heard of. Embarrassing to watch as a Brit. A student could have written it.

RT is state-funded. Thus, when RT is reporting on Moscow's foreign policy, especially in regards to something as important and sensitive as Ukraine, it's at best a conflict of interest. More likely, Russia is like every other country - information is a weapon, and it is willing to use it. President Putin has already said that he is unwilling to lose Russia's influence over Ukraine, and that he would use every (legal) means possible. Media falls under that.

[quote name='Isobel' time='30.04.2014 10:10']I nearly choked seeing State Department announcement that RT is writing propaganda - way beyond just pots calling kettles, outright hypocrisy by the State Department when their Sec of State never stops telling lies about Ukraine.

For an example of RT propaganda, take a look at the RT news article (should have been Op-Edge) that states that Kerry blames the EU for starting the Ukraine crisis. Kerry never said that - he said that the EU made mistakes and allowed the crisis to escalate. There's a huge difference, but RT used it to promote misinformation (propaganda).

Hey, it's just business. Don't take it personal! * note from the gangster mob movies...It's also very much the mentality of DC.

More and more Americans don't believe mainstream media like CNN,BBC,Fox etc. anymore. They are seeking foreign sources of real news.
