    The "objective" news source is always the one people like? Weird...

    And as the side note, I'm not asking you to listen to opinions (which would be understandable, seeing your stance on objectivity), just look at news.

      Are you actually proud of being tuned into Russian propaganda?

      God forbid you try to get your news from an outlet that isn't spinning you like a vinyl record.

      ever since I discovered their YouTube channel back in 2007 or 2008.  But it didn't take long for me to recognize it for what it is, which is state run "The West sucks" propaganda.  

      I've enjoyed it as a source of laughs (some of it's reporting is absolutely absurd; I still recall their report that Obama's election in 2008 proved that the US was a racist country, unlike Russia!  lol) and as a means to be aware of the point of view the Russian government is trying to get across to the world.  But I recognize that RT has an agenda and their reports are not to be taken with any credibility, just like Fox News.

      It's too bad that some American Chomsky-types and naive American and British progressives have appeared on RT to lend credibility to the anti-West propaganda, but whatever.

      •  You absolutely right about RT, but ... (0+ / 0-)

        ... it's not the point I was trying to make. RT is going to show what western media wouldn't - the other side of the story, not glorified here "peaceful protesters".

        And you are right that their opinions most likely will reflect the point of view of their employer.
