Russia Just Retaliated In a BIG Way to Congressional Bill

One of Russia’s parliamentary houses ordered an investigation into several US-based news outlets.

The investigation is to assure the media outlets, such as the Voice of America and CNN, are not violating any Russian laws.

This decision to investigate media outlets seems to be a direct response to a bill which was proposed to Congress just a few days ago.

Per Breitbart News:

The decision was reportedly made in retaliation against a bill introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) earlier this week that would allow the Department of Justice to use more tools to investigate state-owned Russian media outlet RT America for potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

“We have good reason to believe that RT News is coordinating with the Russian government to spread misinformation and undermine our democratic process,” said Shaheen in a press release.

  2. Thank you for this post Lawrence Richard.

    Based on the report published by Breitbart, what may have triggered the Russian Parliamentary response is not only the bill introduced by Senators Shaheen and Young, but also a very strident statement that US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.made the other day about Russia.

    Instead of seeking to investigate RT America for ties to the Kremlin, maybe what needs to happen is that US corporate media outlets need to reflect on why they are no longer trusted; and how they can regain the trust of the public?

    Maybe the FTC should look at breaking up US corporate media?

  3. Duh Gee! Of course, RT is suspect of spreading propaganda. However it has been a beacon of truth in comparison to CNN and other US based networks. witth RT you always have to assume they are doing propaganda and then factor out 50% of their statements and then you arrive with something like the truth. With liberal new network you cannot do the same because they lie all over the place without any logic behind their statements. With RT at least they broadcast news that is NOT covered by the liberal news network.
