    Criticising for the goal of appearing independent, or just to appear to be open minded is not a good thing.

    However some criticism where criticism is due... criticism to improve the way things are done rather than just finding someone to blame for problems or delays is healthy and valuable.

    You can find plenty of stories about the damage having yes men around a leadership or management team can do... it is very destructive and results in bad decisions being made.

    A good example for this forum and any other forum in fact... there is a difference between a troll and someone who just doesn't agree with you... trolls are a pain in the a$$, but people who have different beliefs make for discussions that are more interesting.

    I hate to say this, but I doubt that Finland is high priority for a channel like RT. Is there any other way you could watch it? (There is always the website.)

    Well how many people speak finnish? For broadcasting news to counter anglo saxon and zionistic propaganda you have to reach high amount of people and i doubt finnish language will cover a lot of people.

    So that basically means you need to cover english,spain,french,german and arabic the biggest numbers of people who are occupied by anglo saxon and zionistic propaganda right now. Chinas CCTV couldn't reach big audience, even tho they are already far better than anything the west can offer, Press TV is also far better than what the west can offer but they are banned over hotbird satiltes in most europe and have a rather small audience abroad.

    Putin praises TASS for chance to meet heads of international news agencies

    "You are here not only as observers but also as participants in the event," Russian president told news agencies’ heads

    ST. PETERSBURG, June 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday expressed his gratitude to TASS news agency for the opportunity to meet top executives of the world's largest international news agencies. The meeting took place on the second day of the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in Russia’s second city.

    "I would like to thank TASS, our oldest news agency, for having launched this initiative last year," said Putin. He also thanked everyone who attended the meeting "for taking part in the forum". "You are here not only as observers but also as participants in the event," he told news agencies’ heads.

    Putin offered his apologies for the delay in the meeting, which was expected to start at 9:00 p.m., according to TASS. He explained that "my colleagues who arrived at the forum have a strong desire to discuss current issues and problems, and it is difficult and almost impossible to interrupt them mid-sentence". "That is why one meeting ran over into another with corresponding delays," he said. "I am very glad to see you and talk about the issues that concern you."

    The Russian leader’s meeting with heads of leading international news agencies, participating in a media summit as part of the St. Petersburg forum, is being held for the second consecutive year. Such format of talks between global media representatives was launched by TASS.

    Besides the organiser of the meeting - Russia’s TASS news agency, participants this year include top executives of eleven international news agencies - Britain's Press Association and Reuters, Germany’s DPA, India's Indo-Asian News Service, Spain's EFE, Italy’s ANSA, Canada’s Canadian Press, China's Xinhua, the U.S. Associated Press, France's AFP and Japan's Kyodo news agency.

    World of Tanks may provoke suicide? Russian media watchdog probing popular game

    A Russian media watchdog, which has recently banned the Pornhub adult website and threatened to banish Wikipedia and Reddit, is currently investigating one of the forum pages of the popular online game, World of Tanks.

    Roskomnadzor announced on Facebook and Twitter that it had received a request to look into one of the massively popular online game’s forum pages, which features 20th century combat vehicles.

    “According to the plaintiff, one of the forum’s pages has information on methods of committing suicide. We are analyzing the content to determine whether it contains illegal information,” it said.

    Roskomnadzor caused quite a stir earlier in September when it banned the Russian-language version of Pornhub and 10 other websites on the grounds that they were deemed harmful to minors. "Go and make friends in real life instead of watching X-rated films,” it stated.

    In August, it briefly banned the Russian-language version of Wikipedia over an entry about cannabis that a court earlier ruled contained illegal information. The ban was lifted just a few hours later, and Roskomnadzor said the Wikipedia article in question had been edited to comply with regulations.

    Also in August, Roskomnadzor warned that news story-sharing site Reddit may also be blocked by some internet providers in the country over a thread about “growing drug-containing plants.”

    Opposition MPs call for all Russian media to report foreign funding

    A fresh bill drafted jointly by all opposition parliamentary parties requires Russian media to inform the state watchdog about any money received from foreign sources, or face fines and closure.

    According to popular business daily Kommersant, the bill provides for amendments to the Russian Law on Mass Media and the Administrative Code, and orders all companies registered as mass media outlets to report any financing from foreign sources within a 30-day period. Violation of this rule would lead to confiscation of the sum received from abroad and fines of between 30,000 and 50,000 roubles ($470-$780) levied on the top managers of the media company. Repeated violations would lead to a court ruling revoking the mass media license of the company.

    The demands do not apply to money received for advertising.

    “Currently, certain countries are increasing their pressure on the Russian mass media through economic leverage, oppressive agencies and so-called ‘rulings of judicial bodies.’ At the same time, we see attempts to directly influence the Russian information space through extending foreign grants to Russian mass media in order to cause biased reporting and create a distorted picture of political reality,” the explanatory note attached to the draft bill says.

    “If someone transfers money from abroad, our citizens must know about it. There is a lot of negative information about Russia right now. I am not against objective coverage, but when they start to inflate tensions it becomes bad,” said one of the MPs who drafted the bill, Vadim Kharlov, of the center-left Fair Russia party.

    Communist Party MP Aleksandr Yushchenko dismissed allegations that the new bill could become a censorship tool and noted that it was important to oppose the bias of certain lobbying groups that use money to attract journalists to their side. “Information is not just traded goods, it is a weapon and we must remember this,” he said.

    The new bill is similar to the Russian “Law on Foreign Agents” introduced in 2012, which orders all NGOs engaged in politics and receiving any funding from abroad to register as foreign agents or risk substantial fines. Groups with “foreign agent” status are banned from sponsoring Russian political parties, but otherwise their activities are not restricted.

    The Foreign Agents Law caused a lot of controversy and protests since its preparatory stage. Russian and international NGOs have criticized the new law as discriminatory and contested it in Russian courts and in the European Court of Human Rights, but with no result. The sponsors of the act and top Russian officials have repeatedly emphasized that its main purpose was to provide better information for voters that would eventually benefit democracy.

    Earlier this month, President Vladimir Putin allowed for some corrections to the NGO foreign agents law, but said that they would concern more precise definitions of the terms used in it with the general scheme left intact.

    When one doesn't have facts and realities on his side, and only propaganda, there is only one way he can follow: preventing the truth from spreading. 30 years ago this was the path the USSR was in, now it is the West. Russia doesn't need to revoke the licenses for CNN, BBC, RFE/RL, etc, because Russians know that almost everything they tell is a lie. But the West will need to do something regarding Russian media, especially RT which is the most popular in the West. Sooner or later it will happen.

    They already tried with bribes and shills like that bitch Liz Wahl that was exposed to have get an offer for job with requirement to make a quit.

    First Amendment Flop: Mccain & gang calls for ' Shutting down' RT

    How many idiotic neocons are there? Do they do anything else except running silly think-tanks and rehashing the same policy papers that were handed to them by State Department and CIA? Here is another guy, David J. Kramer, who appears to be a total lightweight with proper credentials though -- he worked on notorious Project for New American Century (PNAC) -- even though how he could contribute to it, eludes me. So he got his masters from Harvard (which is a ticket to one of those government jobs, since they don't want Ph.D. people who might be able to think on their own), then moved from one state agency to another, managed to be hired as an Adjunct Professor at one of the Washington Universities (how can you be a professor with just masters, beats me, but everything is possible in Washington these days).

    So after publishing silly articles about freedom and democracy (at least fifteen of them were published by KyivPost, very reputable outfit that is still puzzling who is a great hero of Ukraine: McCain, Nuland, or Bandera), this Kramer wrote an idiotic piece in Washington Post, demanding closing of RT. What a brilliant idea!

    Needless to say, for all his achievements, Mr. Kramer was hired by McCain think tank with the following accolade: “David is a world-renowned expert on human rights and democracy, and has vast experience in foreign policy and defending human rights, both inside and outside of government,” said Amb. Kurt Volker, Executive Director of the McCain Institute. “David will make a major contribution to the Institute’s activism on behalf of human rights and democracy around the globe.” Oh, yes, he surely will, his activism is astounding. Like when he recently showed up at Model UN function, and scared the kids by ranting against Russia and China, whose representatives were there, and had to leave. All three hundred of them.

    In any case, here is a take on him by a fellow named Robert Bridge. For reasons that are rather obscure, Bridge continues to refer to Kramer as Professor. I never thought of it as a term of insult, so I don't appreciate Bridge's humor in this respect. He can't possibly use the term on the factual level, since, in fairness to high education in this country (and I don't mean phony think tanks), this Kramer is as much a professor as his namesake from Seinfeld show.

    A senior member of the majority United Russia party has proposed a law that would oblige the heads of mass media outlets and civil society activists to publish income declarations, just as senior state officials and politicians do now.

    “Step by step we must move towards a situation in which all people that are public activists would submit their income declarations,” the secretary of the General Council of the United Russia party, Sergey Neverov, was quoted as saying by RBC.

    https://www.rt.com/business/333939-russia-tv-channels-lawsuit/

    A number of Russian broadcasters have filed a lawsuit in New York court against US companies for illegally streaming their content and using trademarks.

    The plaintiffs are asking the court to stop the streaming and compensate for damages of at least $75,000.

    The complaint has been lodged by Russia’s First Channel, CTC, Domashny, Che, Rain, Nostalgia, REN TV and TNT Comedy, reported business daily Kommersant.

    The American online operators accused of piracy are Infomir, Panorama TV, Goodzone TV, Matvil Corporation, Actava TV, and Master Call Communications.

    The lawsuit alleges the companies intercept the satellite signals of Russian broadcasters and redistribute them in the United States for a monthly fee, using the channels’ trade marks in advertising.

    Subscribers can view the services through a downloaded IPTV player or a set-top box.

    A representative from CTC Media told Kommersant that OTT-operators [companies that deliver media over the Internet – Ed.] have been actively developing on the US market.

    “… Many of them illegally distribute content without contracts with copyright holders, they do not invest in infrastructure and don’t ensure high-quality broadcasting," he said, adding that thus they could offer lower prices to subscribers. The average monthly price in the US for online Russian language channel packages is $5-15 against the $30-50 from traditional cable operators.

    The CEO of Russia’s Rain TV channel Natalya Sindeyeva said pirate broadcasting causes a lot of damage to the company like “losses in revenue and in negotiations with potential partners."

    For legal viewing, Russian TV broadcasters cooperate with local cable and satellite operators in the US which include the international version of Russian channels in their subscription-based packages.
