A second opinion on the Russian RT “second opinion”
Here in DC, there’s a propaganda campaign being run by RT, the Russian state-run ‘news’ channel that broadcasts in English. One poster, that I have to walk by every day going home from work, features a really nasty-looking caricature of Colin Powell at the UN Security Council, reminiscent of the worst of Nazi or Communist propaganda posters.

Remember during the height of the Edward Snowden media frenzy, how his defenders would dutifully parrot every word RT said about him? Here’s your great Snowden defender now. RT and Snowden are the enemies of liberty, peace, and the United States of America.

AIM A/V Room: American Comrades, Russia Today Needs Your Help! [Video]
AIM on Facebook | Twitter New from the Accuracy in Media A/V Room: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVLZxJvw3OI Relatively fresh in the fight for carriage in American cable markets, Russia Today stumbled into the ring with all the grace of a drunken Moscow ballerina.
