US Broadcasting Board of Governors hate RT for its freedom!desperate measures


    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.



    Same with Sara Firth, that british women with a speech failure. They failed repeatedly and the west has forgotten about those shills within days.

    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.

    I know this is bad sounding but I think people such as us should look at helping out Russia-Insider.  It is one of the few news organizations around that actually produces good news on Russia, and not that fifth column garbage like Russia Beyond the Headlines.

    Russian Foreign-Language Media 'Make Splash Abroad', Vex Politicians

    Russian media producing content aimed at foreign audiences have made a splash abroad, judging by vexed reaction from politicians, Russia’s Mass Communications Vice Minister Alexey Volin said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Volin commented on projects launched by Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency and Sputnik International News Service, in an interview marking 75 years since the creation of the Soviet Information Bureau, a leading Soviet news agency.

    "Their nervousness means they are reading, listening, paying attention and reacting [to us]," the minister said. "This means that Sputnik is fulfilling its objectives. We have created a serious instrument."

    The communications deputy chief reflected on mistakes made by the Soviet Information Bureau. He said that the US federal government’s external broadcaster Voice of America and UK state broadcaster BBC were a hit with Soviet people because they provided an alternative point of view on life in the USSR.

    "Audiences take interest primarily in their own problems. The problem with Soviet broadcasters was that they told their audiences only about the Soviet Union. Why did people tune into the VoA and BBC in the Soviet Union? … To learn what was going on in the USSR," Volin said.

    "People have always been curious about a different take on events in their own country," the minister concluded.

    The Sputnik multimedia group is an umbrella brand for news agencies and radio stations with multimedia hubs in dozens of countries and broadcasting in dozens of languages.

    Last November, the Polish broadcasting regulator banned a local radio from airing Sputnik shows, claiming it violated the country’s laws on radio and television.

    Russian online service offers translations from Elvish language invented by Tolkien Society & Culture

    Russian online service offers translations from Elvish language invented by Tolkien Society & Culture January 15, 18:23 UTC+3 The launch of the new function was dedicated to Tolkien’s birthday celebrated on January 3



    http://tass.ru/en/society/850024

    © filmpro.ru MOSCOW, January 15. /TASS/. Yandex.Perevdochik, a Russian online translation service, has started translating Sindarin, a fictional language devised by English fantasy author J. R. R. Tolkien, the company said on Friday. "Our team has studied Elvish manuscripts and attempted to restore one of the most ancient languages of the Middle-Earth," Yandex said. "Now Yandex.Perevdochik knows how to say ‘My precious’ in Elvish. And it can make translation from Sindarin to any of 66 languages operated by the service." The company said that the launch of the new function was dedicated to Tolkien’s birthday celebrated on January 3. Tolkien was a philologist by profession, and spent much time on his constructed languages. The Elvish languages were the first thing he imagined for his secondary world of the Middle-Earth. The writer said that his classic fantasy works, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, grew out of his languages.

    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.

    https://www.rt.com/news/343696-journalist-attack-nuit-debout/

    RT contributor Anna Baranova fell victim to an unprovoked attack by a masked demonstrator during anti-labor reform protests in Paris on Tuesday, but carried on regardless, garnering the sympathy of viewers from throughout the world.

    A video of the assault shows one of the participants in a balaclava impudently walk up to RT’s reporter, before slapping her in the head and walking off without breaking his stride. Seconds later, another protester begins slow clapping in front of the lens.

    Why was she attacked?

    “My helmet had the word “Presse” [Media] written on it – an entity seen by them as an enemy along with the police and the ruling party.”

    Ironically, RT was one of the first international media outlets to cover the Nuit Debout protests, and has repeatedly offered a platform to their representatives. The video has gathered tens of thousands of views online, and hundreds of comments supporting Baranova, and condemning the attack.

    Argentina to suspend RT from national broadcasting
    While I strongly disagree with this move from the current Argentine government, truth is that RT in general, but especially its Spanish version, became just too identified with leftist proposals and politicians who are now becoming more and more discredited in the region. The reason for this alliance with Latin American leftism is not any ideological coincidence (in fact the current Russian government is very pragmatical and unideologized, which is exactly the reason why it is so successful), just the opposition towards US global dominance, but seeing how many of those once popular regimes have failed so miserably (Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil especially), this is not a very solid base and was doomed to fail.

    FSB searches Russia’s leading opposition radio station over ‘hate speech’ article

    A squadron of investigators from Russia’s security agency FSB confiscated disks containing communication between the radio news station Ekho Moskvy, and one of its guest columnists, who has been charged with inciting racial hatred.

    Tweets about the raid sent out on Tuesday morning by its long-serving editor Aleksey Venidiktov about the unscheduled visit from seven investigators spread social media panic about the fate of the iconic station.

    Question about RT

    Post  par far on Sat Jul 30, 2016 4:24 pm

    I was watching a video on Youtube about Russian mechanized division and in one the comments, someone said that on RT you cannot use the words, Israel, Jews and Zionists, so I tried it and he was right. I picked one of the stories associated with the Middle East, in one post, I did not use anything to do with Israel, Jews and Zionists, this post got approved right away, then I made three separate post using the words  Israel, Jews and Zionists, in each one and they came as "pending approval", I waited for a long time and then I refreshed and they were gone. Why is that? You can try it yourself if you like.

    The comments section was infested with tin foil hat nutters and these three words were all over the place.
    It made RT look like a tin foil hat site. RT is aiming at reaching the mainstream audience so it needs to
    clean up its image. Yeah, it is a type of censorship. But there are bigger problems right now in the information
    war and people who want to endlessly talk about Israel, Jews and Zionists can find other places to do it.

    RT vs Western authority showdown continued. Hopefully RT can put up a great fight.

    https://www.rt.com/uk/363232-hedley-union-rt-natwest/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    It’s important to stand up against NatWest’s decision to close RT’s UK bank accounts, said British journalist Oliver Tickell, who launched a petition protesting the move, while asking “if we put up with this, then what’s next?”

    Steve Hedley, the second-in-command at one of UK’s most powerful unions, says that RT’s decision to go public with NatWest’s intention to shut down its bank accounts will help save not just itself, but other alternative media.

    “We are getting to a state of affairs where everything in the country is monitored, and if it doesn’t meet with official approval, it is banned, and has its source of funding cut off. This is a move toward a totalitarian state,” Hedley, Senior Assistant General Secretary of RMT, the UK's biggest specialist transport union, told RT during a live interview from London. “The strong stance that RT has taken over this is good, and will prevent further pressure, on itself and other organizations.”
