Default Russia Today

It's fun to have new sources of information about what's going on in the world. I had heard about Russia Today before, but today I've been exploring their website. On their YouTube channel page, it says that they are government-funded.

The following is taken from their "About Us" page, a page I look for first when I encounter a new source:
_____________________________________________



At RT we are set to step beyond the boundaries of bare facts and bring you the human side to every story. Broadcasting in English 24/7 in over 100 countries spread over five continents, RT is here to show you how any story can be another story altogether.

Our correspondents in New York and Washington, London and Paris, Delhi and Tel Aviv focus on international headlines whilst giving an innovative angle set to challenge viewers worldwide. RT was the first television station in the world to set up a bureau in Tskhinval, the capital of South Ossetia after the August 2008 conflict.

The channel

Launched in 2005, RT has speedily reached the heights of broadcasting popularity. In 2008 the monthly audience among those who have access or are aware of RT’s broadcasts on Time Warner Cable in NYC exceeds the one of BBC America by 11%. The daily audience of RT exceeds that of Deutsche Welle tenfold, within the same network.*

In 2008, RT’s average monthly reach in Russia indicated a growth rate of 82% within just six months. Over the same period, the channel’s average daily reach grew by 46%.**

In 2007, RT’s monthly audience share exceeded that of CNN and Bloomberg TV among NTV-PLUS satellite subscribers in Moscow.***

Apart from regular news updates, RT offers a unique insight into many aspects of Russian history, culture and opinions. Our special projects are specifically tailored to accustom the international audience with the Russian perspective.

RT anytime, anywhere


We are available around the world on cable, satellite and online. In Europe, South Africa and North America, RT has an audience of around 200 million paying viewers among the pay-TV subscribers. RT was the first Russian news channel to harness intercontinental potential and have its live broadcast show on America’s “most important screens” – NASDAQ and Reuters. Likewise, in August 2007, RT was the first channel in television history to report live from the North Pole.

Embracing technological advances, RT was the first Russian TV channel to hit the web with its own page on YouTube alongside its continuous online broadcast and blogs on services such as Facebook, MySpace and Blogger.

Webster Tarpley re. the "underwear bomber":

"There are more questions and conspiracy theories about the underwear bomber arising. Webster Tarpley says that Mutalab was a patsy and wasnt taken off the flight because the government was trying to get more information from him later on. There was an objection from one government agency however, Tarpley also says that government agencies did not talk with each other about this and the government knew that he was going to plant a bomb."

**********************************************

I disagree with the Russia Today description above. What Webster said was that the government is giving us a cover story...

"Is US a police state?"

"The US now has a list of Americans that the country can now murder abroad if they are fraternizing with terror groups. Paul Craig Roberts says that all of this points to a sign that the United States has become a police state."

**********************************************

Paul Craig Roberts:

"We have a criminal - the head of National Intelligence - who comes to the Congress and says we're going to murder American citizens, and nothing happens!"

Alex Jones talks about the big picture regarding the plane crash in Austin, although the description that goes with the video, and the headline on the video itself does not capture this:
